How to Stage Your House to Sell: Our Complete Arizona House Tour

how to stage your house to sell fast

It’s here! The complete room by room tour of our house in Arizona, as it was when we sold it. We lived in and loved this house for four years, and along the way, made it our own. It sold in one week (almost to the minute) for full asking price.

To put that into perspective, our realtor told us to expect it to take 30-60 days. I think the improvements we made to a wonderful house to begin with coupled with some great DIY staging contributed to the quick sale. Scroll to the end for some house staging tips!

Declutter Your Life: 155 Things You Can Get Rid of Today

September is the new January! I’ve told that to Brian so many times in the last week as he’s questioned why I’m de-cluttering,  he now just rolls his eyes. Going back to school has permanently ingrained in me the feeling of fall being a fresh start, a time to refocus on old goals and make new ones. Maybe that’s why they say “turn over a new leaf,” because fall … leaves… MIND BLOWN.

Even though it’s still devilishly hot here in Arizona, I’m not going to let it get me down or chill my autumnal instincts. I’m preparing for one of my favorite fall traditions – the purge. Before I can cozy up for winter, I first have to get rid of all the stuff that’s creating disorder, stress, and holding me back from clarity and purpose by its mere existence.

Friday Finds: 7 Pieces to Incorporate Modern Southwestern Decor

This is a little different from my usual Friday Finds lists. As is probably obvious, I’ve never been too big on the whole Southwestern decor look, despite living in the Southwest.

But last month, as I looked for birthday party themes for Edison, I found so many lovely cactus/boho/southwestern decor items with a little feminine flair, and I just loved the contrast. I wasn’t on the cactus trend before, but now, I’m definitely stuck on it … too much?

I’m looking for creative ways to incorporate touches of it into our house, and put together this little inspiration board.

Pink Cactus Inspiration

1. Watercolor cactus tapestry. This looks like something they’d have at Urban Outfitters, but at a fraction of the cost.
2. Boho macrame wall hanging.
3. Watercolor cactus pillows: top, middle, and bottom. I bought this last one already, and love it! It matches my other burlap and linen pillows and ads a great pop of color.
4. Pink Mexican blanket. These come in all colors!
5. Cactus light. I love this little guy, and he’s definitely going to stick around even though Edison’s birthday is long past.
6. Catctus candles. How cute are these?!
7. Vintage boho rug. I just need the right space for this – but I love the aqua and pink combo.

What do you think of the cactus trend? Love it, or steer clear? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
