HGTV Restored by the Fords

Your design inspiration assignment for the week is to watch this show. A few of us Stager Girls are loving it.

I just watched an episode of Restored by the Ford's and loved it! It is a sister and brother team remodeling their way through Pittsburgh. She dreams up creative design ideas and he makes it happen. She reuses and re-purposes pieces from the home or even has floors patched up. Which is a look all on it's own. Her vibe is a "modern yet lived in" look. And white is her favorite "go-to" color.

“We search out Pittsburgh for the coolest homes, the stranger, the weirder, the more unique, the better,” Steve said. “And then Leanne comes in and puts her spin on it, and I go to work.” By: Jessica Galliart for HGTV

Finally! These Chairs are on Sale

These fabulous chairs from Wisteria can go anywhere and make a statement. Picture them as the host and hostess chairs at the end of the dining table, or a beautiful desk chair, or perhaps flanking a console, or a pop of brightness in the corner of a room, right smack in the entry, or around a kitchen table and on and on and on.

City Livin'

Just finished this gem of a townhouse in one of Seattle's uber hip neighborhoods: Fremont. This is the perfect Car2Go area as everything and I mean everything is in walking distance. Plus with the Lime bikes all over the area who needs a car?! The garage is just icing on the cake. 

Fremont 1

If ya want the look just Click & Shop!

The listing is by Bentley Pugh for Keller Williams North Seattle. Photographs by Sean Henderson at 3DRE and the hipster staging was done by us Stager Girls at Open House.

Capitol Hill Staging

Part of our master plan is to make these condos dreamy, sexy and photo worthy. We love popping a bar cart where ever we can, adding over sized art if we want to and creating a work space that sings.

Our Team Diva client gives us free reign and that = creativity. 


Another fabulous listing by Team Diva Real Estate, photos by John Wilbanks and staging by us at Open House Staging.

We are often asked if we sell our furniture. The answer is "yes" and "no". What I can do is help you achieve our look through similar items. If I can dial you into the exact item I will but you can capture the vibe with some of the shopping suggestions below.

This hip listing went pending not long after we drove away. It was listed by Jason Viydo for Windermere Real Estate, photographed by Jason Mercio from Mercio Photography and staged by the adorable team of Stager Girls at Open House.

Pantone Color of the Year



Loving this color as an accent. I just restyled my daughter's room using violet as inspiration. Started with white bedding and sparkly white throw pillows, then added a violet furry throw pillow and finished with a print of the Eiffel Tower in black, violet, and lavender. It doubles as my guest room so I wanted it to be pretty for my daughter (who hasn't even seen it yet!) and guests. Here is what I purchased. Click & Shop.

Here is some Violet inspiration for you.
