Fall is my favorite time of year for staging because I can use more of the deep rich colors I love. Deep purples, burnished oranges, elegant burgundy’s, rich teals and blues make beautiful accents for beiges and grays to create an elegant warm fall look that mirror the colors of the turning leaves. The key […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Fall in the Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful times of year and the market is cooking! It seems like we hardly finish staging before we get a call from the Realtor that the home is pending!
