Los Angeles area home staging company, Staging The Essentials – located in the San Gabriel Valley – was hired to stage this beautiful contemporary, South Pasadena home for sale. This home’s uniquely modern open floor plan is a rarity in an area of older more traditional homes. We had one day to complete the home staging of this 5 bedroom, 51/2 bath home – something that is no small feat for a house of this size. Our company specializes in one-day staging for sellers, who need to get their homes on the market and sold. Time is of importance when there are so many competing homes going on the market.
As seen below in the Great Room, we mirrored the same furniture from one side of the large room to the other, with the tables and decorative pillows less formal on the TV end.
Below are the BEFORE and AFTER photos of some of the rooms in this lovely home.

Staging The Essentials of Glendora, CA was the home staging company called in to put our home staging expertise to work for this South Pasadena, CA home. This fabulous pool home, great for entertaining, is now fit for any buyer.
We were glad the sellers took the recommendation to paint the wooden panels. The house looks so much brighter! ‘Lighten and brighten’ is certainly on the list for home staging if they want to attract more prospective buyers to their South Pasadena home.
Here are some BEFORE and AFTER Photos to give you an idea of the improvements.
We recommended replacing the chandelier and removing the mirror on the wall (left) in the dining room.
The sellers removed the shelving, washer, dryer and refrigerator in the kitchen to open up the space. The buyer can opt to replace the appliances or move the washer/dryer to another location.
Now this looks like a Master Bedroom in the AFTER photo!
We created a more cheerful place for the boy’s bedroom.
We created a room any girl would love to have.
Staging this house now allows prospective buyers to see what a great home this can be.

By now many of us are at least familiar with the concept of home staging in Los Angeles. Even if we don’t know that its name is called home staging, we have seen model homes staged with furniture and accessories and know that’s what they do to attract a buyer. Some might call it decorating to sell.
Many of us are also familiar with a GPS and what it does for directing us to our destination when we’re not familiar with where we are going. If you’ve used a GPS at least once and have over shot a turn you were directed to take, you have most likely heard the pleasant voiced woman or man say the phrase “recalculating” or something similar. The next phrase she/he speaks is “when possible make a legal U Turn.”
Wouldn’t it be great if we had a GPS for directing us exactly what to do to sell a house quickly and for more money? Well, guess what, we do have such a GPS. It’s called home staging. A professional home stager can give a seller an exact road map for what is needed to sell fast and for top dollar.
If you’re an agent or homeowner needing to sell faster and for the best possible price, “make a legal U Turn” and contact Michelle Drewry a professional home stager in Los Angeles to guide you to your selling destination.
At Staging The Essentials we take the stress out of selling your home. Let us take your house from “on the market” to SOLD! Call us today for a complimentary quote at 213-392-1901.
BEFORE and AFTER
Home Staging a Guest Bedroom
By switching the bed with the credenza, we gave the perception of more space in this room. Also changing the bedding to one that is more grown up and has broader appeal will help to sell this home. Now that’s a Home Selling GPS that works!

As a home stager in Los Angeles, I was excited to add some finishing touches to this beautiful South Pasadena home. Using the homeowner’s furniture we completed the look by moving a few pieces of furniture from one room to another as well as accenting and accessorizing with some additional items of our own.
