At the end of each month we plan to spotlight a local home for our “Home of the Month” post. These will be chosen from a list of the homes we have staged or designed and will help readers get a better idea of what we do! Plus, it’s just fun to look at before and after pictures, am I right?

This months featured home is… 3702 Dayton Avenue!


Listed with Jon Mand of Lenihan Sotheby’s International Realty, this home was under contract within 3 weeks of staging!

A total testimony to one of our mottos:

“Staging sells homes Fast and for Top Dollar!”


Our very own Jennifer Durenberger went out for the initial consult and knew she had a diamond in the rough with this property. The major piece of her staging report was neutralizing the colors both inside and outside . The wall colors in every room were very taste specific and it’s been proven time and again that lighter, more neutral colors keep buyers interested. Just think of this scenario: you’re a huge U of L fan looking for a new home. You walk into a showing and almost every room is painted floor to ceiling in UK blue with UK memorabilia all over the place. What impression has that left in your head? After the initial shock…not a very good one. Not only do you see a huge $ for painting, but you can’t imagine how you’ll ever buy a home from such a huge UK fan. 🙂

That scenario will probably never happen, but trust us: buyers need to be able to see themselves in move-in ready homes. We can make that happen!

Check out the before/after photos of some of our color changes. Even though the “before” photo is not the best, let us note that the shutters also received a color update- something people don’t think about, but is totally game-changing!

The updates made all the difference. With a seemingly new palette, the team went to work “beautifying” the place and really knocked it out of the park.

We even painted some of the furniture! (Let’s just get this shameless promotion out of the way now: CHALK PAINT IS THE BEST THING EVER!)
