In case you missed it, this is part 2 of a Downsizing Case Study where I worked hand-in-hand with my clients to 1) declutter their home, 2) plan for their new space, 3) pack, 4) get rid of unwanted items, 5) stage their home for sale, and 6) coordinate their move/unpack.

Today, we’re taking a closer look at how we staged the upstairs bedrooms with a combination of existing and new furnishings.
This bedroom was actually my husband’s childhood room. It was freshened with a new coat of paint, new carpet, and the furniture was rearranged so that the bed was visible from the door. The room was staged with an antique bed, Restoration Hardware accordion sconces, and refinished side tables.
This second bedroom also received new paint, carpet, and a new furniture arrangement. It was staged with a vintage headboard, vintage (refurbished) nightstand and desk, vintage coverlet, and a beautiful watercolor painting found at a thrift store.
This room had all the same as the above. The layout for this space was a little complicated due to the closet location, so I elected to make a gallery wall using the family’s existing artwork as a focal point. An existing blue quilt tied the space together. The headboard and nightstand were Facebook Marketplace purchases.
The master bedroom is considerably brighter with fresh paint, new window treatments, and a new furniture arrangement. The existing furniture and bed were rearranged, with a Facebook Marketplace headboard added to the bed and painted in blue for a pop of color.
The hall bath was significantly decluttered, repainted, and freshened with a neutral shower curtain, white towels, and simple accessories.
Overall, the changes made to the home resulted in a sale far beyond our initial expectations. I am grateful for the opportunity to transform this space and help my clients move into their new home.
