One man's trash and all ...
We predominantly stage homes pre-sale or for rentals. We love it because it’s quick (five to ten days), the results are remarkable; 98% of clients see fast, above asking price sales. Staged homes really DO sell FASTER and for MORE additionally (we love you clients), and in comparison to interior decor projects, we are left to our own devices … the pre-sale staging client has already moved on, they want to start life in their new home, if they haven’t already … some have reported they’d like to stay, after we’ve decluttered, repaired and restyled!

We once lived in a home with no furniture for months! whilst I looked for perfection.
Follow us on instagram where we’ll post photos of items; you can simply add SOLD in the comments, to the post you want to purchase OR get in touch and we’ll add your name to our i.d store 2NDs listings via email.
