Georgetown Condo Staged to Show the Best Washington DC has to Offer

January 2, 2012

Last week we staged a fabulous 1 bedroom condo in a prime Georgetown location, right across the street from Rose Park.  This unit has a really wonderful open floor plan with a full kitchen and eat-in area, but what we really loved was the living room with the transom lights and access to the beautiful communal courtyard.

Before we could stage, however, we needed to do some painting.  The previous owner had painted the walls for how they lived there, but it was what I call “style specific” and would probably not appeal to the general buying public.  After some careful research, I found a lovely grey for the kitchen that would work with both the countertops and the tile floor, and a very light and airy taupe that complimented the grey.  The overall effect was not only a clear definition of space, but also a lightening and brightening of the entire condo.

The interior space could also be deceiving without furniture in the rooms, especially the living room and bedroom.  When the rooms were vacant, it was hard to imagine just exactly what furniture could go where, especially in the bedroom – would a queen bed fit?  Again, after careful research, I found the perfect rental furniture that met the necessary requirements.  We were able to put a sofa and 2 comfortable upholstered chairs in the living room with two end tables and a cocktail table, while still allowing space to open a storage closet and the door to the courtyard.  And yes, a queen bed and 2 nightstands fit quite easily in the bedroom.  It’s all a matter of scale.
