Creative Home Staging: Here’s a FUN idea from Hooked on Houses!

We all know that staging a home is a great way to showcase the house in a postive light…but here is a new take on it. Take a look at the early ’60s motif they decided to use to stage this home located in Georgia. It must have worked…the $300,000 home is now under contract.

What era would best describe your home?

Staging a Mid-Century Modern House the Don Draper Way

by hookedonhouses on June 21, 2011












Maybe the real estate agent had been watching too many episodes of “Mad Men” when she listed this cool mid-century modern house in Georgia because the staging seems to have been inspired by Don and Betty Draper. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean.

Welcome to our mid-century home, built in 1960. It has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a $300,000 listing price. One of our favorite things to do is to sit on the sofa and look out our big picture window in the living room.

All that’s missing from these photos is the cigarette smoke…

Based on a photo of the Realtor, I think she may be the one playing Betty.

Is that Sterling Cooper calling? I hope pretend Don Draper doesn’t have to “work late” again (we all know what working late at that ad agency really entails!).

The pretend DD spends a lot of time on the phone…

And the pretend BD is getting a little fed up with it.

This house is really fabulous. I love the ceilings and those huge windows. Also love that she’s vacuuming that small skin rug in a dress, an apron, and heels. Ah, the good old days!

Thankfully, they chose not to stage the bathroom…

Agents have been getting pretty creative with their listings in order to grab our attention lately, and it’s working! We’ve also seen house tours given by a drunk doll, a couple of vases filled with flowers, and even a lime.

Check the listing for the rest of the photos and more information about the house.
