Best Staging Makeovers: January 2021 Edition
National Association of Realtors - February 1, 2021
Draw inspiration from the recipients of the Home Staging Resource's new monthly "Best of the Best" awards, recognizing the work of stagers nationwide.
"Imagine this outdoor space with nothing in it. Do you think you would like the contrasting finishes? The pinkish-gray concrete juxtaposed with the golden yellow rock walls would be all you would have noticed. Kate Patino, a home stager and designer with Dark Horse Interiors(link is external) in McKinney, Texas, understood this problem all too well. So she overcompensated by styling this outdoor room to the tenth degree. It’s another example of why it’s important to connect with a stager or designer if you’re picking finishes for a remodel—you don’t want different aesthetics fighting each other for attention in one space. Kate earns a 'Best of the Best' award for transforming and merchandising this space so that the eye is drawn to the lifestyle and not the finishes themselves." ~Audra Slinkey
