Arcadia Home Stager Featured In The Pasadena Star News!
On July 18, Arcadia home staging company, Moving Mountains Design, was the subject of a news story about home staging in Arcadia in the Business Section of the Pasadena Star News, part of the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group.

Here’s an excerpt of the story:
Minch and her crew began staging the massive home at 9 a.m. Tuesday and were expecting to be finished by around 3 p.m.
Early that morning, three trucks arrived at the house loaded with furniture, artwork and accessories. Delivery workers positioned the large pieces throughout the home at Minch’s direction and her team members continued to place other items – including rugs, mirrors, vases, plants, books and paintings – throughout the home.
And just how does a home-stager begin the process?
“I start by coming to the house and walking through all of the rooms,” Minch explained. “I take photographs and make notes. Are the faucets chrome or nickel … and what color is the tile?”
Minch has been staging homes for so long she’s immediately able to hone in on what each room needs.
“I can walk into a room and know right away how much furniture I need,” she said. “I have a 1,500- square-foot warehouse in Arcadia that’s filled floor-to-ceiling with accessories.”
