Highlights of a Home Stager: Neutrals!

8 Feb

You can’t go wrong with neutrals! They’re calming and easy to see yourself in.27972583

Blue is a great color to use with neutrals. It adds color, but not in an overwhelming way.

Flowers and plants are a great way to add color to a room.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Exposed Brick Galore in this Philly Loft

28 Sep

We were lucky enough to stage this amazing brick clad loft near Independence Hall. We needed furniture that was just as trendy as the walls around it.

26477613

A classic white sofa is the perfect canvas for bright pillows and throws, and easily paired with a patterned accent chair.

26477620

A sophisticated pallet of monochromatic blacks and grays make the red of the brick wall really pop.

26477626

We continued the classic white bedding in the guest loft as well, so as not to distract from the amazing architectural, arched, brick ceilings.

26477627

This loft was filled with built in shelving. We strategically placed small accents throughout the home to give it that lived-in look.

26477612

The open floor plan gave us a lot of ideas to work with. We decided to add a small home office to show off all that can be done in such a wide open space.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Spacious Center City Home

24 Aug
27_6835538_0_1469735160_636x435

I love the brick facade on this Center City row home!

27_6835538_3_1469735161_636x435

This spacious and open first floor easily fits not only a living room and dining room, but a small study as well! We used the sofa as a room divider, to give each room a defined space.

27_6835538_2_1469735161_636x435

The minimalistic black and white furniture is accented with pops of contrasting red and green, making for a very clean look.

27_6835538_4_1469735161_636x435

The dining room is surrounded by natural light from the windows to the grocer’s ally. Not all row homes have such beautiful windows to show off, so we kept the furniture low and minimal to keep the eye drawn to the light.

27_6835538_5_1469735162_636x435

Some fun cereal bowls add a needed pop of color to the kitchen eat in counter.

27_6835538_17_1469735166_636x435

Keeping with the color scheme throughout the home, the bedroom has been designed with blacks, whites, and grays, and a small pop of color to balance it out.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Row Home with view of Art Museum

10 Aug

This four bedroom row home, just blocks away from the art museum, has the classic charm that Philly has to offer. The home is deeper than most on the block, so we wanted to do our best to showcase all the extra room it has to offer.

27_6835048_0_1469738064_636x435

27_6835048_3_1469738065_636x435

The neutral tones in this design help showcase the gas fireplace as the focal point of the room, while the layout shows off the large space by providing plenty of sitting room.

27_6835048_2_1469738065_636x435

IS660iwvzwihjl0000000000

While the added depth of the home is a bonus, the nature of a row home makes for a long passage way between rooms.

27_6835048_8_1469738068_636x435

We helped the transition along with a sitting area between the kitchen and dining room to help prospective buyers imagine a use for the extra long space.

27_6835048_18_1469738071_636x435

The master bedroom has been designed with neutral, calming tones and simple accents.

27_6835048_16_1469738070_636x435

We took the sage green walls into account while designing the guest room, keeping a cool color scheme with mostly greens and blues as our accents.

Highlights from a Home Stager: 127 year old Chestnut Hill Victorian

3 Aug

This Victorian is an architectural masterpiece from the late 19th century. We’ve done our best to create an subdued design, and to keep the architectural elements as the focus of the home.

27_6833736_0_1469942485_636x435

27_6833736_3_1469942486_636x435

The entryway of the home gives the buyer their first impression, and that staircase makes quite the impression! We complimented it’s design with some light and airy furniture to create a welcoming feel.

27_6833736_4_1469942487_636x435

In the living room the eye is drawn immediately to the fireplace and its beautiful mantle. We pulled from the blue tile for our design and used a layout that would not impede potentials buyers view of the focal point.

27_6833736_7_1469942487_636x435 (1)

Grays and whites work well with the dark tones of the hard wood flooring and create a classic look.

27_6833736_10_1469942488_636x435

We lightly accessorized the newly renovated kitchen with pops of green, which give it a fresh lively feeling.

27_6833736_13_1469942489_636x435

The master bedroom keeps it light and airy with wire furniture and light grays and blues.

Highlights from a Home Stager: 3 Story Row Home in Bella Vista

26 Jul

We recently staged this beautiful row home in Bella Vista, which offers a ton of natural sunlight and plenty of exposed brick! The backyard and private parking spot will be a major selling point for this home, so we wanted to make sure the interior would excite potential buyers even more.

ISy352bbkhweol0000000000

The charming backyard with private parking is sure to inspire.

ISmi46x88dzbjl0000000000

The light wood floors made for a great platform for a neutral living room with pops of navy and green.



ISecakwramqvvl0000000000

Open layouts are a great way to entertain, but it can be hard to picture room divisions in a large empty space. We created distinctions between the living and dining room to help prospective buyers picture their own layouts.

ISeordw8r9274m0000000000

ISec2ue245rejl0000000000

We designed a simple kitchen decor, so as to not take away from the exposed brick accent wall.

ISyzx5epvoakjl0000000000

An oversized landing can be daunting to prospective buyers. This small office set up gives you an idea of the potential!

ISyz5wve26a1wl0000000000

IS660iwvzwihjl0000000000

Light colors with contrasting accents showcase this home’s excess natural light- a home buyer’s dream.

Turn Key Interior Design Philadelphia

20 Nov

I am so excited to finally share this with all of you!  We just completed the install of this beautiful rehabbed condo.  Within 6 weeks time we were able to turn this empty post-construction site into a home away from home for our wonderful client.  I have lots of photos to share so this will be a 3-part series.  Let me walk you through the main living area and share some of my favorite design elements.

DSC_0056

 One of my absolute favorite pieces in the entire 3 bedroom condo is this re-claimed bookshelf.

DSC_0049

Our client wanted a cozy feel for their basement living area.  So we created a chill place for friends and family to hang or curl up and watch a movie.  Warm tones and low lighting add to the comfortable element.

DSC_0051

Using a mixture of finishes gives the space a funky vibe.  We combined the soft upholstery with a metal coffee table, reclaimed bookshelf and tv stand.

DSC_0065 DSC_0066

I just love how the reclaimed wood of the tv stand works with the natural stone wall.  The living area is also the entry point to the condo so we needed to create a place for shoes and coats.  This bench adds some seating with storage underneath.  We also added a mirror for final checks as they walk out the door.

DSC_0059DSC_0063 DSC_0061

This fun metal sign points guests in the direction of the bathroom.

DSC_0071

Next up I’ll share photos of the first floor bedrooms!  Stay tuned….

Thanks for keeping up!

Blending In to Stand Out- Fairmount Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

7 Mar

23rd1   This was a super fun project because this Fairmount home has so much unique detail- I was in love the moment I saw it!

Brocade pattern wallpaper, intricate tile work, stained glass, and extraordinary woodwork all command your attention.  And, although these elements all lend to a traditional ambiance, we wanted to show how contemporary design fits right in.  We wanted to go with pieces that would not detract from the home, itself, and also that would lighten some of the heaviness of the colors in the space.

Additionally, we wanted to explain furniture layout.  Because the living room is very large, and the fireplace is right in the middle, we wanted to assure potential buyers that they can utilize the natural focal point, as well as the space around it.

Making Room in Fishtown- Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

7 Feb

IMG_9663This beautifully renovated Fishtown row home is crisp, clean and fresh.  The cut out above the dining area creates the opportunity for storage, or a great gallery space.  Each of the two bedrooms has it’s own private bath, and the first floor has its own powder room.

At just under 1100 square feet, the major challenge here is that the first floor is very long and narrow.  When you walk into the empty house, it is hard to imagine creating a proper living space.  So, we selected petite furniture and defined several separate areas in order to show how easily a small family could, in fact, function in the home.

IMG_9665

We created a sitting area in the front of the living room, and a separate TV space with the sofa.  This communicates that there is ample seating, and even multi-function capability in this home. gaul4 gaul3

Our sleek and funky glass top dining set shows seating for four, with room to spare.gaul1We use a mirror to explain where the TV would go, because this is usually the first question that a potential buyer will ask.

IMG_9664 gaul2 gaul6 gaul5

Upon initial inspection, both bedrooms seemed pretty small.  But, once we brought in furniture, the spaces really seemed to open up.

Queen Village- Home Renovation, Design Consultation and Home Staging Inovation by Sunflower Creations

31 Jan

IS9dkdpjniwmwx1000000000 This was one of those projects that really rests close to the heart!  You could tell that the homeowner had much love for the home, and working through the renovation process from beginning to end with him was like watching a flower bloom.

We met with the home owner back in July, right after he and his family moved out of the house.  A little background:  Our client bought the home right out of college, and eventually transitioned it from bachelor pad to family home for his wife and two small children.  But, as the family grew, the house seemed to have shrunk, and this crew found more space in the suburbs.

The home-owner knew that he had a jewel, situated in the heart of Queen Village, surrounded by fabulous restaurants, shops and greenery.  He also knew that this jewel needed some polishing, which is where we came in.  We walked the property top to bottom, inside and out, and provided a consultation report that outlined all of our pre-sale renovation recommendations.

IS9tsmm7f0vukx1000000000

We came up with a 5 page renovation list, which included paint color selections, kitchen and bathroom upgrades, detailing such as replacing  switch plates, shower curtain rods, etc–  And everything in-between.  We love the character of this home, and we know that people who are looking to buy in this neighborhood are generally looking for some character.  (See the tera cotta kitchen tile, brick work, Mexican talavera tile work throughout the home, dark cherry cabinets, and original red pine flooring.)  So, we suggested keeping many of the existing finishes, in order to focus the bulk of the budget on upgrades that will help increase sale price.

Next, this home owner got to work!  …And we must say that he did a phenomenal job managing the renovation.  We visited several times throughout the process to run through our initial list with him, and make updates as needed.  He spent weekend after weekend punching every item on our list, and here is his finished project after staging:

ISxbzm5rrojmkx1000000000

He original paint colors were very warm burgandies and golds.  They seemed natural in the space, but they were very dark, and made the space feel small. We selected a light, neutral palette, which really opened up the space.  Then we used some of the original warm colors as accents.  ISx7wlzhomf0mx1000000000

Second floor consists of a large bedroom, an office/nursery, and bathroom:

And, the amazing master suite with fireplace and roof-deck access:

IS5qnlmbji92c10000000000 ISdgthqpbtkcm00000000000 IStkbf5ccu95k10000000000 ISh7hl3s6ukac10000000000 IStgwkg7t74ym20000000000

(Great work Keith!  We wish you a quick sale!)

There will be an open house this Sunday, 2/2 from 12-2pm.
