Sep 14, 2020

Do you ever see a stage or remodel that just makes you go 😍?

That's how we felt when we saw this recent mobile home makeover by House Candy Home Staging founder (and certified Master Color Consultant®!) Ashley Tapley. She completely transformed this mobile home with skillful color selection and excellent home staging.

"The Staging Studio Master Color Consultant® course gave me the HOW and the WHY behind choosing colors," Ashley said. "Their system has helped me consistently nail my colors."

And wow, did she nail her colors this time!! Read on for Ashley's story about turning this model home into a quick sale.

Aiming for a Quick Sale with a High Profit

I recently had the pleasure of staging a very well-cared for 70's-era mobile home. I was up for the challenge, and very excited to see how I could update the space.

When I entered the home, I immediately knew that paint and home staging could help sell this home quickly. A newer home in the park had been on the market for over 100 days, so this one had to be GREAT to pull off a quick sale.

Selecting the Perfect Colors

I decided to paint the ceilings, cabinets, and doors all Pure White by Sherwin-Williams®. The walls, which were originally covered in wood paneling, were painted a lovely greige called Drift of Mist by Sherwin-Williams®.

Ashley painted wood paneling in the home office, and other parts of the home, with Drift of Mist by Sherwin-Williams®.

In the living room, the paint and neutral furnishings were paired with pops of blue, plants, and textured items to make the room feel fresh.

Styling the Mobile Home

The dining room had a built-in cabinet that was paneled with faux wood and had dark red Formica® countertops. They were not going to paint the countertops, so I had to work with it as-is. To minimize the red counters, I covered them with wood-tone place mats. Fresh paint and removing the cabinet doors gave the hutch a much more updated feel, and made the shelves easier to style.   

I was hoping for a new chandelier to update the dining room space, but it wasn't within the budget. A circular rug, airy glass table, decorative mirror, and small-scale furniture made the room feel spacious, and even made the chandelier look updated!

In the two bathrooms, fresh paint, art, florals, and towels made them SHINE!

Floor-to-ceiling curtains hung high and wide in the bedroom made the window feel larger, while fresh blue and white bedding brightened up the space.
