Pasadena Home Staging – Mid-Century Modern Love!

It doesn’t get better than this! Pasadena Home Staging -Mid-Century Modern Love!

2 weeks ago we completed this Pasadena Home Staging project of a beautiful Mid-Century home.

Even the front door was spectacular! I love the original detail on the door and the terrazzo tile in the entry.

The original floors were replaced with what looks like wire brushed oak planks with a gray wash. Yummy!

The house has great flow from one room into the next. The rug is from India and is hand knotted. It’s an 8’x10′, so you can see just how large the entry is.

Pasadena Home Staging Living Room

When we stage a home, we honor the architecture without being a slave to it. We want to appeal to fans of Mid-Century Modern, but still keep the home warm and appealing to anyone who walks in the front door. I love, love, love those windows and the paneled ceiling.

The fireplace has a terrazzo surround. The sliding glass doors lead out to a private patio. You could throw a great party in this house!

Moving on to the family room, we added  some color with cobalt blue sofa and chairs. I wanted to pull in some of the blue from the beautiful pool right outside the door.

Hollywood Hills Home Staging – Hollywood Hipster View Home

We had a lot of fun with this Hollywood Hills Home Staging project for a Los Angeles Flipper.

We were so lucky to be hired for this Hollywood Hills home staging project. Located in the Hollywood Dell area of the Hollywood Hills, this very cool home is located perfectly close to the 101, the studios and Hollywood. Living Room In Hollywood Hills Home StagingWho doesn’t love a good Yak photo?

We paired a rustic jute braided rug with teak and wicker stairs, 2 carved pod end tables and chunky throw pillows with lots of texture.

This house has amazing views of downtown Hollywood (Capitol Records Building!) and we created 3 different outdoor living areas. While this house is just 1,200 SF, the outdoor living spaces makes the house feel double the size.

I love mixing Old and New elements, like the antique Indonesian fence post and Mudra hand, with newly sourced sofa and chairs.

Some different views of the kitchen:

Here’s the dining room. I love the hairpin legs on the dining chairs. They really work well with the Steam Punk style dining table.

I’ll let you in on a little secret: This beautiful rug is from Target!

We had fun staging the bedrooms too. The throw on the bed is an antique, handmade African quilt. Rug is handwoven, from India.

Paint Colors Can Impact Your Sale Price

Did you know that paint colors can impact your sale price?

Yes, paint colors can impact your sale price when selling a home. What colors you paint your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom or living room can impact how much money you will get when you sell your home. According to a study funded by Zillow, homes with rooms that are painted light gray or light blue/gray will sell for $5440 more than homes with rooms painted other colors. Here are some other findings from the Zillow study:

Homes with light blue bathrooms sold for $5440 more than expected.

Houses with light gray or “greige” exteriors sold for $3,496 more, on average, than homes that were painted tan or brown.

According to the Zillow report:

Selecting the right paint color is one of many factors that may affect why a home sells faster or for more money. Walls painted in cool neutrals like blue or gray have broad appeal, and may be signals that the home is well cared for or has other desirable features.

Some colors may actually deter buyers. Homes with darker, more style-specific walls like terracotta dining rooms sold for $2,031 less than expected. However, a lack of color may have the biggest negative impact as homes with white bathrooms sold for an average of $4,035 below similar homes.
