It’s been a little quiet around here lately. This is the busy time of year for me and the design biz, so that’s part of it, but we’re ALSO gearing up for a huge project at home:
WE’RE MOVING! The house went on the market yesterday! These are listing photos! Aaah!
We bought low in 2012 and now that the market has (quickly) bounced back, we’re flipping the house ahead of schedule. We thought we’d be here until next year, chillin’ with our brand new hardwood floors, but our neighborhood is having a hot streak NOW. So we’re jumping on it.
Our agent had us stage the dining room as a fake living room. I miss the rug.
The last 10 days have been a mishmash of final details we just hadn’t gotten to yet: updating the last few light fixtures, painting the office gray, getting a new doorknob–and then doing a deep clean and staging the house.
I am exhausted.
I’ll have a post for you next week about staging a home for sale, because it’s very different than designing for yourself and it was a bonkers adjustment for my brain to make. I’ll also spill the beans about Casa Ronchetti 2.0 when we find it, but that’s a couple of months away. Unless somebody in the equation needs a quick closing. Gaaaaah! One thing at a time, Paige.
It’s going to be a busy summer. Anybody else moving?
