How do I transform a room? What is my creative process? Here’s a behind the scenes look at the steps I take to turn a home, room by room, into a house to sell.
To start, stand in doorway and ask ‘what am I seeing?’
Pick staging or focal point and decide the purpose of the room.
Make a plan for what needs to come in or stay out.
Accessories are divided into two piles: One to keep and the other to give up.
Then ask, ‘what furniture needs to be removed? What furniture stays?’
When the furniture is in the room, it’s arranged in a way that would answer my first question.
After I walk through these steps, I make any final adjustments and fine tune the details of the room.
