Highlights from a Home Stager: SUBURBAN STAGING, BALA CYNWYD- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

14 Jul

Take a peak at this charming suburban family home in Bala Cynwyd, staged and sold– just a couple of weeks on the market.  I certainly has curb appeal- and that really sets the stage for the charming interior, which you are about to see…

The home was the seller’s childhood home, and it was really important to him that the buyers would love the property as much as his family had done over the years.  He acknowledged that there were some dated elements, but really wanted the buyer to be someone who would love the original elements of the home, and make their updates with that in mind.

27_6797688_2_1463948428_636x435

Now, I don’t know about you, but I am just a total sucker for a sun porch….  I love the idea of feeling like I’m outside, but without the bugs, and without the weather.  This room is the entry to the home, so we wanted to make the first impression feel cozy.  Just a few pieces of furniture to create a little sitting area- and the area rug and curtains really warm up the space.

27_6797688_6_1463948429_636x435

The living room has a somewhat challenging layout, with regard to where to situate the sofa in order to watch TV.  We wanted to provide multiple options.

Nice big dining room- LOVE those windows, and the original hardwood floors…

27_6797688_10_1463948430_636x435

Now clearly, the kitchen could use an update- BUT, it’s clean, spacious, and in reasonably good condition.  That oven unit is SO COOL!

27_6797688_11_1463948430_636x435

And we do love a good nook…

27_6797688_14_1463948431_636x435

Master Bedroom is spacious and sun-drenched

Highlights from a Home Stager: SUBURBAN SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY HOME STAGING- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia, PA

27_6655914_3_1455999236_636x435

Here’s a peak at a sprawling suburban home, situated right on a beautiful green golf course in Moorestown, NJ.

The sellers tried to sell the home vacant for about 4 months, and were getting frustrated at the lack of interest among prospective buyers.  Although they felt the home was priced accordingly, feedback was consistent that the home was not as updated as the young professional demographic was wanting.  They even tried dropping the price:(

Our task was to blend the traditional finishes (wallpaper, paint colors, fixtures, etc) with a more transitional style of furniture in order to make the home feel more contemporary and relate-able to the younger market.

27_6655914_13_1455999237_636x435

We kept it clean with muted colors, bold patterns, and furniture with strong, solid silhouettes.

27_6655914_10_1455999237_636x435

We went with a rolled arm sofa and rolled back accent chairs, but opted for a cool slate blue palatte, contemporary prints, and a glass/metal coffee table.

27_6655914_11_1455999237_636x435

So, Super Exciting….Drum Roll, Please….  Three weeks after staging, this property was under contract…At the original asking price!!!!

Suburban Home Staging Challenge by Sunflower Creations

6 May

IMG_0317

Very cool reno on a quiet, tree-lined street, along a creek– But, a complicated first floor layout brought us out to Elkins Park for this home staging project.

The major challenge is the two support beams that divide the space.  Additionally, the fireplace, and several doors really dictate furniture placement.

27_6332546_4_1399043675_636x435 27_6332546_5_1399043675_636x435

We definitely wanted to create a main seating area around the fireplace and large bay window.  But, we also wanted to incorporate the area behind the dining space into functional living space.

(Have an other look)

IMG_0317

In such an open living space, we really think it is important to show function.  Sure, it’s nice to offer lots of room, but if the potential buyers can not figure out how to make the space work for them, they are going to move on to the next listing.

So, we created a space that helps transition between living room and dining room.  One could sit and read the paper with their morning coffee, enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, and still be part of what is happening in the main living space.

27_6332546_8_1399043675_636x435

In terms of design choices, we wanted to keep it simple.

We worked with a mixture of our accessories, and the seller’s- So, we wanted to make sure the overall style was cohesive.  And, the architecture, itself, offered a lot of interest- the beams, bump-outs, bay window, fireplace, doors, etc…  So we really didn’t want to introduce a ton of new patterns and textures.  We did a few bold pieces, and focused on creating clean lines and shapes that would pull everything together.

We were happy with the finished project!

Suburban Rehab in Broomall, PA- Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

14 Nov

marple3As soon as we set foot inside, we could not wait to get our paws all over this place!

This is a REALLY cool rehab, with original flagstone entry floor, beautifully salvaged hardwoods, shutter windows, and modern updates!

We’ve got built-ins, secret doors, fireplaces…  What fun!!

Here’s a few pics of the great room/dining room, and bedrooms.

marple2

The sectional sofa serves a few functions in this room.  First, it defines the space that is the living area, as opposed to the dining area.  Second, it allows for lots of seating without monopolizing the wall space, which is filled with all those terrific built-ins.  And finally, it creates the perfect frame for that beautiful fireplace.marple7marple1

Here are some shots of the master, and 2 additional bedrooms:marple4 marple5 marple6Thanks so much for looking!

The City Outside of the City- Suburban Feel Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

8 Aug

shawmont3

One of the reasons I love my job is that, in staging, we get to create a completely different look every day.  My own taste is super-eclectic, so I can fall in love with everything from Ultra-Modern, to French Provincial, to Shabby Chic.

This project is part of a new development of town homes in Roxborough, which is part of Philadelphia, but feels a little more suburban.  This property, in particular, is situated off the beaten path- surrounded by green.  You can see the finishes are on the more traditional side- Cherry cabinetry, butcher block island, and crown molding.  So, we chose slightly more traditional furniture, and then played with some fun textile accents, and accessories.

shawmont1

We used some really fun accessories in this house.

I love the print curtains, and heavily textured flower paintings…

The stacked owls on the dresser are one of my favorites!shawmont5

I also get pretty excited about the three-dimentional metal flower sculpture below (I don’t get out much)!shawmont6

Fun in Fort Washington- Suburban Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

27 Mar

 

IMG_0058Every Home Staging is fun, but I have to admit that I love staging older homes!

They just seem to have their own unique characters and mysteries, and that makes them charming.

This home had bold colors in every room, which to me, is so fun and challenging to work with!IMG_0073 IMG_0072 IMG_0059

We also got to mix in some furniture and accessories that were already in the home.

Built-ins are the best!

Suburban Home Staging in Malvern by Sunflower Creations

7 Jan

5

Unlike many of the properties that we stage, this home is suburban, sprawling, and spacious.

This is important to note, not only because the scale of the furniture needs to increase, but also because one must consider the who the buyer is.  What are they really looking for?  What is their design taste?  How are they different from our downtown city buyer?  And how can we adjust to captivate their attention?

6

Although we still presented a contemporary look, we chose to keep it leaning toward traditional.

Floor to ceiling curtains, timeless furniture pieces, lots of pillows, and artwork choices all help to create a feeling of luxury.

This butler’s pantry is so charming (with ceramic tile and granite counters) that we just had to accent it!

This unit has a great layout and gets tons of natural light, both of which make it feel huge!  (That sofa is gi-normous!)

But it’s also got lots of odd angles and open space, which makes furniture layout and space division difficult to envision.blog16 blog15 blog17 blog18(Click here for full property listing)

Home Staging Highlights from Sunflower Creations- Philadelphia’s Home Stagers- June, 2015

Mount Airy Home Staging

This charming property had been on the market for a couple of months, and was not getting buyer attention.  It just needed a little bit of punch!  We mixed in some contemporary with some of the homeowner’s more traditional style.  Even in a more traditional space, contemporary staging adds energy and translates well to potential buyers.
