Highlights of a Home Stager: Sleek & Modern Stagings

12 Apr

Light colors make a staging look fresh, neat, and new. They work great in new construction homes. The clean lines and colors emphasize the newness of the home.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Staging a Traditional Style Home

Traditional Homes are filled with a style all their own. We do our best to accentuate the unique qualities of a home.6893230_4_0A large cream dining room needs some color, but not anything that will contradict the refined wainscoting and original stained glass windows.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Staged and Sold After Only 2 Days!!

15 Mar

This lovely split level home was on the market for over two months before the realtor asked Sunflower to step in. The house had amazing features- a Jacuzzi tub, an entire floor devoted to the open kitchen and dining area, large bedrooms, and a cozy entry living room- but buyers had a hard time seeing its potential with the bare walls and empty rooms.

ISuoyvk69zyp1t0000000000.jpg

When potential buyers came in their first impression was of a small living space, and were left to wonder, ‘Could I fit a couch in here?’ Now, there is no question that this space can house a comfortable living area.

6899565_5

The dining room is also looked to be on the smaller side when empty, but adding a sizable table and six dining chairs shows that looks can be deceiving.

6899565_5_5

Using a king mattress really shows future buyers just how large this master bedroom is.

6899565_13_5

The bathroom could sell itself, in my opinion, but a few accessories never hurt!

6899565_16_5

Just a little bit more proof that staging really works!

Real Estate & Essential Oils

6 Mar

File Mar 06, 2 18 22 PM.png

Hi Everyone!  Staging Chick here, I haven’t been personally blogging as much these days.  But as you can see I have an AMAZING team of stagers and movers that have been tearing up the streets of Philly staging houses left and right!

I’ve been thinking recently about different ways to increase a home’s marketability. Obviously I’m a HUGE believer in home staging as I’ve seen it work time and time again to not only increase a home’s buyer interest but also value.  Home staging covers one part of the equation, aesthetics.  We allow buyers to see how to use the space, to see the beautiful details and layout.  What I’ve learned though is smell is also another VIP part of selling a home.

The sense of smell activates the limbic system which is directly linked to memory and emotions.  Whether good or bad, smells can help a buyer remember your property.  It can draw them in and help them make a connection with the home.  That’s why this Thursday March 9th, 2017 I’ll be hosting a Real Estate & Essential Oils Class on Facebook.

Follow the link below and click ‘Going’.  If you can’t ‘be’ there at 8 on Thursday don’t worry the info will remain on the page for two weeks, but you do have to click ‘Going’.  This class will go over the basics of Essential Oils and how we can use them to make our homes more marketable!

I’m so excited for this class and hope you are too!  ‘See’ you there 😉

Every once in a while we get clients who ask for a lot of color. We LOVE those clients! It’s a nice change of pace to create fun, bright, livable spaces. Don’t get me wrong, neutral colors can be beautiful and are great when it comes to staging, but sometimes bright colors and fun fabrics can make your listing more memorable.isy70599oqeh880000000000

Bright colors aren’t for everyone, but they sure do get your attention.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Open Floor Plans

11 Jan

Open floor plans are all the rage these days. Many of the new town homes being constructed are jumping on the bandwagon with this recent trend. It’s important to know how to design each room so that it is unique, yet cohesive.

isewptt6c696a31000000000

An open eat-in kitchen is great for entertaining. We used browns and different colored wicker pieces to tie the two entertaining spaces together.


isq5hmphe4uej31000000000

The living room is filled with natural light. We decided to use darker brown furniture so we wouldn’t over-saturate the room.

ism20wt2nvgkm31000000000

A high top table allows for more seating, without take up much room visually or physically. 

isu828c9r3phm31000000000

Using like colors and textures among the spaces creates one cohesive living space.

isewxjbwin8nm31000000000

More natural light calls for a monochromatic color scheme with pops of orange!

Highlights of a Home Stager: Detailing- Staged & SOLD!

28 Dec

Our second detailing blog! These are becoming more and more popular with the mainline homes. Detailing an occupied home is an important tool for selling your home faster. Don’t make home buyer look past the clutter, show them a move in ready home that they can see themselves in. This home was on the market for over a month when they decided to bring in Sunflower Creations, and that decision really paid off- it sold shortly after!

An undefined entry makes for a poor first impression.

 

Clutter distracts buyers from the space.

 

The oversized seating in this room made it seem much smaller than it was. Some smaller, sleeker love seats, simple art work, and a much needed decluttering turned this room into the classy sitting area this home deserved.

A set table makes a world of difference.

Some slight changes make this living room more inviting.

We showcased the amazing bed frame these home owners already had. We also decluttered the bookshelf, making it both functional and decorative. Adding a sitting nook didn’t  hurt either!

Bedroom Befores and Afters!

A formerly unused corner in the basement was transformed into a reading nook using one of the oversized arm chairs from the sitting room.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Designing with Neutrals

14 Dec

Designing with colors is always fun, and when done correctly it can look very sleek. However, most peoples idea of a sleek home involves neutral and muted colors. Neutrals are also great for staging, because they appeal to the masses.

30146512956_64383bfd6c_o

In this living room, for example, we used a monochromatic color scheme that pulls in different whites and grays. The variation of  textures-reflective chromes, soft velvets, sleek leather, and numerous patterns- adds a level of interest and keeps the neutrals from becoming dull and boring.

30181150415_b63e886c29_o

29552112344_77f2d2ee13_o

29552141383_c53c0a7a14_o

The dining room continues the use of neutrals and multiple textiles. A pop of natural greenery gives the room the little bit of color it needed.

29552143593_6faccfde90_o

This well lit home office is a soothing retreat that does not depart from the decor of the home.

30146509366_0917c189b3_o

Simple art work in the monochromatic style gives a the room added interest.
