We LOVED staging this gorgeous Kirkland home! With stunning features like a gorgeous kitchen and a jaw dropping master suite, it wasn't hard to make this house really stand out. We did face challenges with the massive room sizes, but we really love how this turned out! Staging is such a vital piece of selling a home. A large vacant area can be overwhelming, and using styling and staging techniques gives prospective buyers an idea of how they might live in the home. We love that these before and after photos show just how dramatically staging changes a room! Check out these great photos, and some fun design tips and methods we used when we staged the different spaces of this property!
This large living space may seem intimidating when you see it as an empty room. Staging such a big area isn’t easy! We wanted to make this area feel warm, even with the size; these warm, calming colors really play off of that warmth from the artwork to the couches.
Design Tip: You may not notice this little trick when you first walk in, but all of the artwork in this room ties together with themes and colors, to create harmony within the spaces. Because this space was so large, we used two facing couches on either side of the mantle, and added two armchairs facing the fireplace to really draw your eye to the center of the room.
This kitchen is absolutely gorgeous. With a kitchen so beautiful, we wanted to stay really simple to let the kitchen speak for itself! Simple greenery and a few objects were enough to create a fresh and minimal feel.
Design Tip: Play off of the original features when styling the space. Because the lights had a great mix of industrial glam, we styled the bar area with these gorgeous steel-based stools with wooden seats that also tie into the dining table!
This formal dining room is the perfect mix of cozy neutral, and modern sophistication. Using light neutral colors that feel light and airy really make this room feel calm and peaceful.
Design Tip: Use the main focal point of the room — in this case, the dining table — as the inspiration for the rest of the room design. This table is white marble, but actually has a lot of warm tones. Because of the warmth, we chose gold toned frames, and very simple art. We also chose clean white roses as the centerpiece to bring out the cooler tones of the table. The light chairs and rug really make this room a neutral beauty!
This downstairs area is perfect for entertaining. The built in bar, large living space, and sliding doors to the beautiful yard make this room any hosts dream!
Design Tip: This massive sectional was luckily left by the seller, and really helps give the room a proportional feel. Due to the dark brown shade of the couch, we styled it with very light, neutral pillows to break up the heaviness. We also tucked the cords up behind the TV to create a cleaner look, and used this great console table to balance out the wall space so that the TV doesn’t just feel like it’s floating on the wall!
This room is the epitome of cozy! We really wanted this room to be a really comfortable place to be. With light and neutral shades, warm textures, and simple design, this room is effortlessly serene.
Design Tip: If you’re mounting a TV in a master bedroom, style the space with a simple piece like this bench and cozy pillows! You really want balance out the space so it doesn’t feel like a floating TV, similar to the concept in the downstairs!
Isn’t this bathroom gorgeous?! We love all of the stunning tile details, gorgeous stand-alone bathtub, and amazing natural light. Some simple greenery accents and and resort-like white towels turned this bathroom into haven!
Design Tip: Don’t forget about the shower! To pull some added attention to this gorgeous shower, we added a plant and some objects. This small detail is an awesome way to keep the theme consistent and add a unexpected touch of fun!
The original owners used this room as a guest room, but we really felt like it would be great bonus room for prospective buyers to imagine! With the couch area on one side, and a kids area on the other, this room really feels like a fun place for the whole family!
Design Tip: One of our favorite parts of this house is this little kids nook! When families are looking at homes, kids are immediately drawn to fun spaces like this!
