Highlights From a Home Stager: Contrasts

3 Oct

Many of the homes on the market today are painted a stark white. It makes sense to leave the walls neutral for buyers, but it isn’t always warm and welcoming. An easy way to combat this is by using a monochromatic color scheme. Black and white accents create a classic modern look.

The black and white color scheme is continued throughout the entire home, with art, accessories, and furniture all creating a cohesive look.

The bedroom keeps it classic with an elegant plush rug and black and white bedding.

Highlights From a Home Stager: Industrial Living

19 Sep

This industrial apartment has it all! Exposed brick, high ceilings, a ton of space, and in the heart of Old City, to boot!

genMid.7143976_2_6

We worked with the bold red accent wall with some contrasting navy throw pillows. Wood accents give the home a warm lived-in feeling.

genMid.7143976_5_5

This structural brick wall could be a source of confusion for potential buyers. We gave the wall a purpose by creating a perfect little reading nook in the corner.

genMid.7143976_14_5

The spacious bedrooms are complete with endless exposed and white washed brick walls. Some neutral bedding and wooden side tables allow the brick to be the main attraction! We had a great time designing this beautiful apartment! I’m sorry to say it’s already been snatched off the market. Yet another Staged & Sold property under our belts!

Highlights of a Home Stager: Loft Living

5 Sep

We’ve got another small space showcase for you! This one was even more of a challenge than our Spring Garden Condo- we had to fit a bedroom into this small space!SD6cLkglYhgdXl38UVsHBX2yGLhKNRd-xp2loG2PXzWLy7gIw5Jz2wfMMCHjwisNjv5UQT6Aj2y90AtmOuPW0VXYVITvqhaxbm1P4ZJlxIE.jpg

Not only did we fit a bed, but also an office, living room, and small dining area! That’s all you really need when you’re living in the heart of Rittenhouse Square!L8NqOZRUEoeBxTqNvGsewYmVce379MuiqwRNpe1-eplfuVk9npy-BPnNfnlFA6ddZvKGmVA7ZT0IxgLWUSqy4Ub_gwPFdswaREfjPKqBaAk

Tucking the bed to one side, we created enough space for a small living area, complete with a desk for those work from home days.feWBK7HRNHpG4cd-BN-I30viVABL_c5urNceO3epfE6Sk5czwjkHEFco_tW23UDezQ5GcUUBLq1Dd8HxijiAPhRyDNjSYo4YZ9_VInrRiNc (1)

The final product was a fun and funky loft, perfect for a young professional.

Highlights from a Home Stager: Thoughful Design in Passyunk Square

23 Jan

Here’s a sweet spot in South Philly.  East Passyunk is such a phenomenal neighborhood if you are into eating, shopping, leaving your house:)…  And this home would be phenomenal even if you didn’t feel like going anywhere!  It’s compact, but functional- and our client did a great job of opening up the space through his selection of finishes:

titan1

There’s tons of exposed brick that carries through to the 2nd floor.

 

titan2

Of course, the open floorplan makes the space feel airy.  So does the bright white on the walls.  Also, the high-hung light fixture keeps things fluid.

titan3

titan4

White kitchen cabinets pop, and open shelving keeps a smaller space from feeling confining.

titan5

titan6

Just enough brick to make it interesting, but the white walls open up the room.  

 

titan7

And, a sliding barn door (see it in the background?) is a very stylin’ way to save space.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Industrial Living

16 Aug

Industrial lofts are being transformed into beautiful apartments all over the city. But not everyone can see the potential in the brick walls of old factories.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Nooks and Crannies

19 Jul

 

genMid.6898064_3_1Philly is busting at the seems with industrial lofts turned apartments, but not everyone can see the potential in an unfurnished open space.

genMid.6898064_8_1

Lofts are filled with unique nooks and crannies. To some they might seem like wasted space, but when staged this nook makes for a perfect sitting area, unlike any you’d find elsewhere.

genMid.6898064_12_0

An open air loft is a huge selling point, but if it’s undefined it may leave home buyers wondering what use it could serve.

genMid.6898064_22_0

Giving the loft a defined purpose shows its potential.

genMid.6898064_16_0

There’s no denying this place has character!

Highlights of a Home Stager: Functional Design in Small Living Spaces

24 May

City living comes with some great advantages, but with many disadvantages as well. One of the largest complaints of city living is the lack of living space. Part of our job is to comfortably create two living spaces within one.

6894812_1.jpg

This living space needs to have a duel purpose, both a comfortable and inviting living room, and a designated dining area. Using a glass dining table creates the much needed dining area without taking up visual space. A creative solution to a small space problem.

6894812_4_1

The home’s design made the most of the small living space. An added counter creates more dining area great for morning coffee or entertaining guests.

6894812_6_1.jpg

Creating duel function living spaces means more room for the bedroom. This spacious bedroom is a bright retreat in a condensed city apartment.
