Los Angeles Luxury Home Staging – A Look Behind The Scenes

Most people don’t know what goes on behind the scenes during a Los Angeles luxury home staging project. Here’s a look behind the curtain.

Last Friday we completed our first Los Angeles luxury home staging project of 2014. It is a beautiful 6,500 sq. ft. new construction home located in Arcadia, CA. With 5 en suite bedrooms (3 up and 2 down stairs), a home theater/media room, wet bar, wine cellar, home office with built-in shelves, 2 kitchens (one is a wet kitchen/frying kitchen), a beautiful kitchen/great room combination and a terrific Arcadia location, this beautiful Prairie-style new-construction home leaves little to be desired.

Moving Mountains Design is one of Los Angeles’ best and most respected luxury home staging companies. I wanted to show you what goes on behind the scenes when we are staging a home in Arcadia, Pasadena or anywhere in the greater Los Angeles area.

Home Staging Furniture DeliveryWe usually have 3 or 4 truck loads of furniture and accessories when staging a large luxury home.

Beautiful Arcadia Home Staging

This week, we were lucky to be able to stage this beautiful new construction home in Arcadia for one of our favorite builders. This beautiful 6,000+ sq. foot home called for the best of the best of home staging. Designed by Robert Tong with 5 bedrooms, all ensuite. And note the beautiful detail painted on the ceiling of the living room. It is so subtle, at first you think it is a shadow. I love it! The client requested a “clean, elegant, up-to-date look” and we were happy to comply with their request. Apple green is one of my favorite colors to stage with because it photographs so well and good looking photos are the first step to getting buyers in the door. Did you know that more than 90% of home buyers start their search for a home on the internet before actually going to see homes. If your home for sale doesn’t look great in photos on the MLS and internet, it will be dismissed with a click of the mouse.

San Marino Home Staging | Staged And Sold In Just 18 Days!

San Marino Home Staging

This San Marino home staged and sold in just 18 days. And when I say staged and sold in just 18 days I mean we staged it on August 29 and it will CLOSE ESCROW on September 16! The owner received an accepted offer on September 5, just 6 days after listing. This was a contemporary home staging project, a rare bird in traditional San Marino. I always try to keep the homes I stage light and bright and this home was no exception. We used a pale colored Persian rug and white leather sofa and chairs in the living room. In addition, I used glass tables for their reflectivity and to play off the frosted glass sliding barn door that separates the living room from the kitchen, dining area and family room.
