  • too much furniture in the space. the focus appears to be on the furniture, and causes the space to feels small and cramped, not open and airy (key selling feature)
  • furniture impedes walkway to the glass slider, that leads to a fabulous direct water view (key selling feature)
  • too many family photos and accessories in the room, creating a cluttered appearance and mentally blocking potential buyers from visualizing their own living space

steps taken to

  • furniture was paired down
  • family photos were stored for later display in the homeowner's new space
  • the artwork above the mantel was switched to a neutral oil painting—the previous art was too graphic and distracting
  • the tall armoire was moved to reveal a window which was nearly totally obscured, bringing in more natural light
  • a smaller area rug was used from a different room to reveal more of the beautiful floor
