Selling The House~Staging the Kitchen Hearth Room

I know you all have seen 
my Kitchen and Hearth Room 
a million times!  
When we decided to list the house 
I decided it was time 
to make some big changes.  
I needed the room to look as large 
and spacious as possible for potential buyers!  
Can you see the changes?  
I took away the long farmhouse table 
and the black dish cupboard 
and replaced them with this 
glass table and bench.  
It was actually a lot of 
trial and error one weeknight.  
The light fixture was hung 
in an awkward location 
and was never centered 
when the farmhouse table sat here.  
Mr. Beaux was convinced 
that if we put the round glass table here 
and centered it, 
that there would be too much space 
left in the corner of the room.  
We tried a lot of different combinations 
before he finally agreed 
to help me move in the round glass table. 
But look, it seems as if it as always been here!  
And it makes the room look so much larger.  
I do so love this kitchen!  
I am going to miss it for sure!  
I tried to keep everything pretty simple for staging.  
I had fabric for pillows all ready to sew 
but I ran out of time before pictures.  
So I ran over to Stein Mart 
the night before and found 
some that would do for the moment.  
Then...
Be still my heart!  
Miss Kim from Savvy Southern Style 
Instagramed that Pottery Barn 
was having a sale on pillow covers.  
I RAN over there 
and found these wonderfully perfect pillows!  
Thanks Kim! 
Look at these gorgeous pillows!  
 And they were less expensive 
than the "These will do" pillows!  
YAY!  
I'm still working on 
the pillow arrangement for the bench.  
I will have to switch out these fall pillows 
for something more wintery.
And even though I am taking all of 
the Stein Mart pillows back 
I am keeping the cute red and white 
grain sack place mats 
that I found during my late night shopping spree!
Won't they look too cute for Christmas?
My sconces that I ordered finally came in.... 
And they were the WRONG ones!  
Of course, it was the day before pictures 
so I reluctantly agreed to take them 
and hang them anyway! 
It isn't that I hate them, 
it's just not what I ordered.  
At the lighting shop where I bought them 
they order the lights and then 
customize them themselves.  
They customize this particular light two ways, 
with the glass as you see here 
and with a candle slip 
which is the way that I ordered it.
Something like this...  
I had adorable black shades all ready 
to place on the top too!  
But, sometimes you just have to roll with it, right!!!  
I'll show you more of the listing pictures 
because they just do such a great job.  
And, my house may never be this clean again!

Now back to cleaning out closets!

Until Next Time,
Beaux, R'eves,
Sweet Dreams!

I'd miss that kitchen too--but I know you'll make the next one magical as well! I like your "buy me" changes--well thought out.

Sarah said...

What a wonderful space. I'd miss it too!
I popped into PB this afternoon and picked up the woody station wagon Christmas pillow. I had missed it last year, so was pleased to see that they brought it back again this year. And it was on sale! Yipee!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

Yes, that is a home to miss for sure. I forget- why are you moving again?

Shelia said...

Ooo...I'd miss your gorgeous home too! It looks lovely and I wish you the best on the selling of it.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cindy, I know you're going to miss kitchen as well as the rest of the house. Your home will sell quickly and your next one will be just as beautiful. Life is full of changes I can sure be a witness to that.. fondly ~lynne~

Theresa Ball said...

Your home is staged to perfection. Have you thought about this? Your home is "famous" for being on a blog. Who (the buyer) wouldn't want to brag about that to their family and friends? The changes to the home are certainly transparent! Good Luck!

Gigi Harlan said...

Your house is beautiful and you should have no trouble selling it. I love the kitchen too!

JP said...

Oh, how I love the touches of red that you added...it's just so cheerful, which is why it's my favorite color. Your house is amazing, Cindy, and the new buyers will be thrilled in such a gorgeous home. Wish it could be mine!

It looks amazing Cindy. Right out of a magazine. The pillows are super.The pictures are great. Some of them look sketch. I'm sure your house will sell quickly.

michelle said...

Your home is beautiful, you surely won't have any trouble selling it! I especially love your french doors-I've never seen them made like that before. I'm looking forward to the rest of the pictures!

LOVE this room!!!

Alycia Nichols said...

I have always admired your home, Cindy, and I admire it just as much with the changes. Moving can be a really daunting thing, but when your home is as pretty and well-organized as yours with such professional staging techniques at work, I imagine it makes the job a lot easier.

Every change is A+!!! I hope it doesn't all become too stressful! Hang in there!!!

Your home looks amazing! I'm sure this won't be on the market long. If I was lucky enough to be viewing this home with a realtor I would say the kitchen and the hearth room have me. It's such a beautiful space!

Stacey said...

Your house is so beautiful! I have no doubt it will sell in a heartbeat.

Hi, I just discovered your site. Your kitchen is beautiful. What color are the walls?
