Hidden fireplace sells condo after staging!
The open floor plan of this condo was confusing for the homeowner to decorate, and a beautiful, working, wood-burning fireplace was hidden by houseplants and family photos. After staging this formal living room had a purpose, and a focal point! The over-sized television was stored off site, houseplants were pared down, family photos packed away to avoid distraction, and the sofa turned to face the fireplace which now was the first thing buyers see when entering this home. Matching throw pillows were brought in and the bookshelves were merchandised for maximum impact. Color changes and wallpaper removal were recommended to the homeowner, and in a few short weeks they were heading off to their new home in Florida!
