Charming Little Home Staging in Charming Little Fishtown by Sunflower Creations

25 Feb

memphis3Fishtown, located immediately northeast of Center City, is  roughly defined by the triangle created by the Delaware River, Frankford Avenue, and York Street.  Currently described as a mixture of  working class families, artists and young hipsters, the name “Fishtown” is derived from area’s former role as the center of the shad fishing industry on the Delaware River.

This adorable property is a great mixture of the old and the new.  Modern kitchen,  and open floor plan bring a modern feel to the old thick plank floors and exposed brick.

Our task for this project was to define the spaces because it is small- and that can be tricky!  We flipped the living room and the dining room, which provides a lot more living space for the potential buyer.  This is a bold move, but in this case, it made sense.

Rest assured, potential buyer, you CAN fit a queen size bed your the master!  (Most people do not realized that a queen is only about 6 inches larger than a full.  Yet, somehow, it makes a huge difference visually.)

And we also wanted to offer a suggestion on how to lay out the 2nd bedroom.  It is a little challenging because it has bump outs and french door.  That does not leave a ton of choices!
