EW: How does styling a photo for a magazine differ from staging a home for sale? AJ: I have styled model homes but never staged homes for sale. So I can only speak to designing a model home versus photostyling. Working on designs for models is very much like producing a styling job, except that the room is photographed at the end of the process. Since I am a stylist I only think in terms of designing a home or room to the last detail. Regardless of it being photographed or not, my rooms are always photo-ready. I cannot do it any other way.
