I LOVE working with military clients. Since they move so much, they really appreciate staging and understand how important it is to sell their house.
I was very happy to get a call asking to stage a house for clients that I helped almost 6 years ago when they were being transferred. After moving around a few times, they ended up back in Ottawa and are on the move again. I remembered every single item they had from their last house and it was so much fun working with them again. They have a great sense of style and are open to any suggestions.
As soon as I walked into the house I feel in love with the fine details and stunning kitchen and open concept main floor. I smiled to myself when I saw that they had repeated so many of the same things that we did 6 years ago just in a different house. Everything looked great but we all agreed that there was something missing. They had only been living in the house a couple years and said they found it a bit ‘dull’. Everything was gray, black, white and red was their accent colour. I remembered that they had some yellow cushions from their last house and as soon as we added the additional colour the rooms came to life. It’s amazing how something so simple had such a huge impact.
I found it interesting that they told me that they didn’t have their other homes outside of Ottawa staged. So many other provinces in Canada just don’t stage houses yet. It’s almost expected here now. They told me that if they ever move again, they will get me to do a virtual staging with them.
