Staging & Design

Snapshots from a staging project in Denver’s Park Hill Neighborhood

This beautiful Park Hill home just hit the market today, and I wanted to share some of my photos and favorite parts of the staging & design project. With a Mid-Century-Modern vibe and super fun second-hand finds, I had so much fun creating each room!

The sellers already had this gorgeous long entry console, that I asked to leave for staging, because it was just so dang pretty! Folding in some extra art work and this gorgeous curved top wall mirror–it brought some great height, brightness & openness to the space. Mirrors are great for making spaces look extra big!
I love that oil and watercolor paintings are making a comeback.

Hello Studio McGee! We see you. Thanks for making landscapes and painted portraits super cool and mainstream again. We are here for it! I folded in many of these beautifully framed canvases throughout the house. They look rich and bold, but are super reasonably priced from Target!

These rooms were so naturally bright with the big windows and original wood floors. The buyers did an amazing refresh of this mid-century home, keeping the character and the white walls, but we wanted to add some warmth and color–bring in the RUGS! I always start with the rugs and/or art work, and then build the room around them. This area rug was a Facebook Marketplace score for me. Brand new and under $50. The Project 62 abstract framed canvas art was a Goodwill thrift store score! P.S. Check out the “Before” of this previous office turned additional bedroom:

My sellers had the coolest style to begin with, and some amazing period pieces handed down through the family. It made the staging job extra fun–like this fabulous dining set which was the seller’s grandmother’s. I brought in the living room furniture with a focus on making sure everything flowed well and had a cohesive feel.
The Sellers wanted the first impression to WOW people as they walked into the great room. So we swapped out the focal points of the mantle and fireplace area to showcase art and greenery and a little sitting area. The fireplace screen was removed, and this beautiful birch wood from a shop on etsy added instead. So pretty!

Thanks for following along with this fun journey. Reach out for any design and staging needs of your own. Would love to help! And follow me on the “” app for sourcing and product info!


Welcome! I'm Amber--looking forward to sharing our home organizing and wellness journeys together. My path to create a more simplistic and nontoxic lifestyle started nearly 10 years ago, as a young married adult, and honestly was driven more by keeping a “clean house” rather than limiting our exposures to toxins—taking shoes off at the door, meant less time sweeping and mopping floors. That was a win in my book! Babies, and some personal health challenges (cue the grapefruit-sized tumor) have stirred up a passion for advocacy and education around simple, yet effective, ways to limit exposure to environmental toxins in your home and on your body. Additionally, the hubs and I have enjoyed living in some of our favorite cities, and in smaller more humble homes, with a focus on simplicity! I have a passion for organizing, design and DIY! Most of my home projects are featured on my Instagram Page. Follow along with me! @MakeSimpleHappen.
