Highlights of a Home Stager: Lofted Living

7 Jun

Lofts are becoming more and more popular as builders continue to convert historic building into living spaces. Living in a building rich with history has become quite sought after, but can come with many complications.

genMid.6928248_13_0

A large problem with lofted living spaces is a lack of adequate lighting. When staging lofts we use many table lamps to adjust for the minute overhead lighting.

 

genMid.6928248_8_0

A flowing layout is important, much like with any other open floor plan.

genMid.6928248_7_0

Another problem that often arises when turning an industrial loft into a home is the lack of natural lighting. This loft installed a glass window in the guest bedroom to allow natural light from the living room windows to reach it.

genMid.6928248_4_0

Bright art and light colored bedding distracts from the fact that room does not have exterior windows.

genMid.6928248_12_0

Many industrial lofts have exposed ducts, which add interest, but can also get in the way when designing. Staging these areas shows prospective buyers that the ducts don’t have to limit their furniture layout or design.

genMid.6928248_16_0

The loft’s master bedroom has the same problem of a lack of exterior windows. To allow natural light into the room the architects decided to refrain from adding a door to the bedroom. We once again used light colored bedding to create a brighter atmosphere.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Luxury Staging in Rittenhouse Square

10 May

This luxury staging was deigned with modern, sleek designs in mind. A uniquely shaped sectional adds more interest in the large open living space. Many new luxury homes have large windows to let in as much natural light as possible. However, this tends to make future home owners weary about furniture layout. Bringing the sectional forward creates space between the window and the room, keeping the airy feel.

genMid.6782567_0

A wide living space requires multiple seating areas. Keeping the furniture style and colors consistent is essential to creating a cohesive style throughout a large room.

genMid.6782567_2_0

The dining room and kitchen were designed with many modern fixtures and finishes. In order to keep the staging consistent with the home’s style we used a combination of furniture with wood finishes and white sleek materials.

genMid.6782567_7_0

The spacious master bedroom was also designed with a large picture window. Strategically placing a settee  angled in front of the window makes it seem less overwhelming.

genMid.6782567_9_0

The guest bedroom is bright and airy. A slight and consistent pop of color adds interest, while keeping the design neutral.

genMid.6782567_8_0

A bonus family room continues the modern style with sleek wooden furniture and a modern sofa in a neutral color scheme.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Staging a Traditional Style Home

29 Mar

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: 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.

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.

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.

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

A large living space is often on home buyers check list, however a wide open living room can seem daunting and unfurnishable to some.

Breaking up a larger space into three distinct smaller spaces will make an over-sized living room more manageable.
