Staging Extravaganza

What a thrill to stage an incredible estate.

From Wikipedia:

Dunn Gardens in Seattle, Washington, is a privately owned 7.5-acre (3.0 ha) property composed of the remaining acreage of the estate of Arthur G. Dunn Sr., who made his fortune in the fish cannery business. Dunn bought the property in 1914 as a summer get-a-way for his family, and contracted the landscaping to the Olmsted Brothers. Upon his death, the property was inherited by his children. His son Edward B. Dunn provided for the care of his share of the estate in his will. A trust was created two years after his death to oversee the entire property. Dunn Gardens were listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 15, 1994, and are open for special public events and docent-led guided tours April through July, and from September through October.

I will admit, the home does feel like a get-away or a 2nd home. It is not formal and feels cabin-y in many parts of it. Other parts it’s crazy sexy so who knows how they lived in it.

And then there is the cottage:

Definitely a 2 truck day. What a major project. It was chaotic moving in but when the trucks drove away it was calm beautiful and quiet.

Redfin asked and we answered!

Redfin tracked us Stager Girls down for one piece of advice to sellers. Trust me, we had more to say than just this but we picked an important one. Here is what we said:

Think light and bright

“Buyers are looking for light and bright. Remove heavy window coverings and bring in fresh neutral paint colors.”

Day in the Life of a Stager Girl

Even when we are crazy busy we still find time for fun. A huge luxury is sitting down for 5 minutes to decompress. Here is a snap shot of our staging days.

And today, we are waiting on the forgotten dining room table back at the warehouse…

And if the sun is out no matter the time of year we will find an excuse to be in it!

Belltown Living

This condo cannot stay on the market very long, that’s for certain. We loved the large spaces, great parking (no lie), huge views and hip building. Our client wanted it to feel bright, colorful and swank which I think we delivered.

Our goal was to keep everything in this home white, light and bright. We had to show off the great spaces and keep the rooms as bright as possible.

New Construction Bellevue

How decadent to move into such a beautifully built home. It flows so well, has great multi functioning spaces and all over well designed. We love staging Winfield Homes.

I am showing you the back of the home because I love the outdoor space.

How to get the Urban Farmhouse look:

An edgy hybrid style of two popular design aesthetics. Rustic wood mixed with linen and leather that warms the space. Add in high-contrast finishes and onyx accents to create the contemporary side. And…BAM! You got the look.

Our SHOP also has what it takes to help you with this vibe.
