Experiment with Different Looks

Final Look

Try different Home Staging looks till you find the right one. The first staging design involved only a few pieces (chair, rug & plant), but it didn’t feel warm enough. This space leads from the entryway into the living room so I wanted Buyers to feel an instant embrace and welcoming feel. The final look adds onto the first idea. This design incorporated a relaxing daybed, comfy throw, more pillows and hanging artwork to further warm up the space and create an instantly inviting feel.


Before Staging


First Look

Add a Touch of the Outdoor with Easy-to-Care for Plant

Aina Hina (192 E Hind Drive)

Bring the beauty of the islands into your home. Add a touch of the outdoor (fake fig tree) and hint of color from a plate of fruit (red apples) to brighten your sitting room. The fake fig tree is actually an easy-to-care for living plant with a long life span and decorating with fruit is an inexpensive way to stage your home.

Living Room Transformed Through Home Staging

Before (Top) & After Staging (Bottom)

What was once an empty, lifeless living room is transformed into an inviting gathering place where Buyers can picture relaxing with their family and loved ones. I staged with simple, classic furniture and a few accent pieces to bring a welcoming, at home feel to the space. Then I turned my attention to hanging artwork which add a splash of color to the living room and filled the large shelves with an assortment of charming items that represent island living.

Turn Wrinkly, Messy Bed into Crisp Focal Point

Waikiki Landmark Penthouse #3801

Turn a wrinkly, messy bed into the crisp focal point of the bedroom by ironing or steaming your pillow cases and comforter. To further spotlight the space, add a soft throw placed diagonally from one corner and prop an accent pillow (bright color) against the stack of pillows to draw the buyer’s eye to your beautifully assembled bed.

Rent Your Home Faster with Staging

Diamond Head Rental

Get your place rented faster. Home staging isn’t only an effective means to sell your home quicker, but also makes rental properties much more attractive. A simple and easy tip is to add small pieces with pops of color to brighten up the space (e.g. accent blue & green pillows, bright beach towels on the lanai and an aquamarine footstool). In addition, who doesn’t love a cozy throw? Drape a warm throw over the couch or a chair in the living room to emphasis the property’s welcoming “at home” feel.

Different Accents & Textures Transformed this Condo

11074 Lunalilo Street

Adding color filled accent pieces and introducing different textures can significantly change the feel of a space. The calming ocean blue of the kitchen separates that space from the living room where blue accent pillows, a burnt orange throw and contemporary rug add a comfortable and inviting feel. Professional staging helped this property sell much faster than comparable units which remained on the market significantly longer.
