Staging of 295 Green Dolphin Drive

Placida, FL

This 1.2 million dollar home is unique in both layout and setting. It had some basic furnishings but there was nothing dramatic or inviting about the interior. That’s where I came into the picture and Staged It With Style!

Notice in the images below how the colors pop in the Living and Dining area, bringing drama and personality to this beautiful gulf front home. The Kitchen is lovely in itself, and Staging added even more interest and show of function.

Special Home Staging Project

2015 Parade of Homes for Tudor Villas

5012 SW 26th Ave, Cape Coral, FL

This gorgeous, 2,900 sq. ft. new home built by Tudor  Villas is part of the 2015 Parade of Homes. I had the pleasure of staging the entire home interior.


Vacant Home Staging Project in NE Cape Coral, FL

A lovely pool home with freshwater canal access, this home was not showing as well as it should. I met with the realtor and seller and we determined which areas of the home should be staged. The results speak for themselves!

We added personality, color, function and charm to the Great Room.

There is now a clear Living area, Dining area, Nook and Kitchen, as shown in the photos below.

The Master Suite was also staged, to include the Bedroom and Bathroom.

We even staged the Boat Dock area to attract potential buyers who are out for a leisurely cruise on the water.

Home Staging for Furnished Residence

9100 Red Canyon Drive

This is a home that I staged and listed for sale in S. Fort Myers.

The sellers live out of state and decided that they wanted to part with this lovely residence they’ve owned for over 10 years. The place looked pretty good, but needed some home staging to give it a more personable and inviting look for potential buyers.

living rm before2Living Area was okay, needed needed some finishing touches

living rm beforeHere is another view of the Living Area

I did some rearranging of the smaller pieces to create a warm and welcoming look in the Living Area as shown in the two images below. There was not an issue with clutter or much editing needed in this home, just some strategic rearranging.

Again, it was the smaller details that made the larger change in the Family Room. Strategic rearranging makes a difference!

Here are a few more photos of the finished project…

Vacant Home Staging Project in S. Fort Myers, FL

6791 Danah Court

This is a lovely pool home with gulf access in S. Fort Myers. The owners have moved on to their new residence and this home needed some attention in order to show prospective buyers how the main living areas would look. Many buyers have a difficult time visualizing how a home will look with furnishings in it.

Home before staging 2The Living Area did not present a positive first impression as a prospective Buyer entered the home.

Living Room After Home Staging      Now when entering the home a prospective Buyer sees a beautiful view of the Lanai and pool, soft unobtrusive window treatments and just enough furniture to demonstrate the function of the space.

home before staging 3The Family Room is laid out well and includes the Kitchen and a Nook as well as this seating area. The big black empty spot on the wall was not a good focal point.

Family Room After StagingNow the Family Room is pleasant and inviting, with a positive ‘TV’ image as part of the arrangement.

Warm and inviting, there is now a style presented that flows with the rest of the home’s finishes without being overdone or cluttered.

Fort Myers Beach Home Staging Project

140 Bay Mar Drive

This is a beautiful island home in Fort Myers Beach that I staged and then sold for the homeowners. The home was sold furnished and had some great pieces, but it needed some editing and rearranging…that’s where home staging comes in!

Living Room before home stagingThe Living Room was pleasant but a bit unbalanced

This lovely island home was listed, sold and closed in less than 90 days!

Here are some photos, courtesy of, that will give you a very good illustration of how staging a home can make a substantial difference in how it is perceived by a potential buyer. Notice that in some cases the room was painted, or a specific area was given some color, such as the wall behind the shelving in the Family Room photos. Most often, furnishings are rearranged, pieces are brought in from other areas of the home, and accessories are changed out or drastically minimized.  Sometimes a room does not have enough furnishings to present a complete and cohesive idea of the function. Prospective buyers should not have to visualize how a room can be utilized…Staging shows them! This allows the buyer to see themselves living in the space with no distractions or stumbling blocks.
