Highlights from a Home Stager: ART MUSEUM AREA CONDO STAGING- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

8 Jul

This bi-level 1 bedroom condo in The Art Museum Area has fabulous high ceilings, spacious layout, and such a phenomenal locations.  We just staged it last week, and we can wait to see it sell quickly!

27_6818193_1_1466988226_636x435

On the main floor, we created a living area, dining area, and workspace nook, in order to show that this unit has a place for everything.

27_6818193_9_1466988228_636x435

Downstairs is the kitchen, bath (with sauna), and bedroom.

27_6818193_7_1466988228_636x435

Basement bedrooms are actually great, because they are generally nice and quite.  But, they can be very dark and cavernous- which is why we suggest staging them.  We make sure to use lots of white and bright colors to breath life into the room.

Highlights from a Home Stager: CENTER CITY CONDO, STAGED & SOLD- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

29 Jun

 

 Here’s a Logan Square condo ya can’t have because it was Staged & Sold in a matter of days!

27_6776205_2_1461286841_636x435

The unit had some traditional elements, like this fireplace with carved wood mantel (above).  We wanted to compliment that in our staging, but still appeal to a young professional target buyer.  So we did add in some more contemporary pieces, like this clean-line, mid-century footed sofa.

27_6776205_1_1461286840_636x435

27_6776205_0_1461286840_636x43527_6776205_5_1461286841_636x435

27_6776205_8_1461286842_636x435

This atrium dining nook is definitely unique, and my favorite, favorite feature in the unit!  A glass-top table and small, simple chairs make the space feel larger, and compliment the open feeling created by the floor to ceiling windows.  And the symmetrical placement of the art- muted in color and rectangular in shape- creates the feeling of more windows, and more light.

Highlights from a Home Stager: CLASSY CONDO IN OLD CITY- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

20 May

HI Everyone!  It’s been such a long time since we’ve had a chance to post because the Spring Real Estate Market has been WILD!!  We’re happy to be back to the blog, and we’re excited to share lots of new listings that we’ve been a part of over the last couple of months!

Here’s an Old City condo that we staged just this week.  The space is huge!  We wanted to incorporate just enough furniture to fill the space, provide layout suggestions, and define function within the open space.  But we also didn’t want to crowd it because one objective of staging is to accentuate the amount of available living space.

We went with a very subdued color palate- Silvers, greys, black, white, and natural wood tones.  Our hope was to neutralize the blue painted walls and give the unit an elegant feel.

I love the way this charcoal and white area rug POPS!

27_6685238_3_1463666963_636x435

And this pair of classy silver/grey accent chairs add some interest through pattern, without introducing new colors into the mix.

Highlights from a Home Stager: ODD SPACESEdition, Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

15 Mar

Hi Everyone-  Thanks for reading!

Can’t wait to dive into this week’s photos, because we have been working in some very unique spaces these past few weeks!  A major part of our home staging philosophy is that functionality is #1- Ya gotta make prospective buyers feel at home, and one major aspect of that is showing them that the home can meet all of their lifestyle needs.

In some spaces, living is very easy-  In a large home, their are often ample rooms to accommodate office space, relaxation space, exercise space, what have you…  But in a smaller home, we have to work a little harder..

But, it’s a little more than just square footage…  Sometimes the shape of a room can really restrict furniture layout options.  And built-ins, fireplaces, stairwells, and windows can pose challenges too…  Enter, Sunflower Creations!

Here’s a look at some Odd Spaces that we’d staged recently:

7xx S. 2nd St, Queen Village Trinity Staging- Sold in less than 1 Week

This compact home features an entry level eat-in kitchen, basement living room with built in desk, 2nd floor bedroom suite, and 3rd floor bedroom suite.  The property is completely charming and completely lovely, but it has some real layout challenges.

When the kitchen is on a separate level from the living room, we like to make the seating area feel super-cozy.  Instead of a traditional dining table/chairs and table settings, we go for a more comfy/casual hang-out feel.

2

The living room is small and oddly shaped, and much of it is taken up by the built-in office.  But we created a clear TV area, and a little bit of common space everywhere in the home.

8xx N. 20th St- Fairmount/Art Museum Area Home Staging

My initial thought about this house is that its the one that everyone wants to hang out in because it’s really cool- but nobody knows quite what to do with it!  Seems like it must have been converted from a store-front to a home, and its got all these huge windows that offer amazing light, but zero privacy.  Limited wall space also restricts furniture arrangement a little bit.

We wanted to show off the window feature, but also provide privacy from the outside.  And we wanted to show people how to make the layout function, and also create the best first impression when prospective buyers entered the space.  We went with an asymmetrical layout because the room is not symmetrical, and we created little bit of a terrarium-feel, with lots of greenery to make the space feel homey.

10xx Spruce St- Center City Condo Staging

This 4th floor condo had an unusual layout.  Enter into this large living room, and proceed down 3 steps to another very large room that is way bigger than a typical dinning room.  Beyond that room is a stairway landing with a nook that just needs to be utilized, and then into the eat-in kitchen.  Bedrooms are on the level below.  So, this is a deceptively large 2 bedroom condo!  With so much room for sitting, and for eating- this one feels like an entertaining space to me!

The unit, and the building itself, were more traditional in style- see the light fixtures, windows, etc.  So we wanted to go a little more traditional with our staging, but still keep it contemporary to appeal to the modern buyer.

Here’s living room #1

Well, Center City has been jumpin’ lately with condos and homes for sale!

Rittenhouse to Washington Square West to Society Hill- and everything in between…  Here’s a peak at what we’ve been up to this January:

13xx Spruce St Home Staging-Washington Square West-Center City- Philadelphia

blog100 - Copy

We brought a little drama to this 3 bedroom condo!  Though we often go with white sheers on the windows in many of our stagings, we wanted to create an oasis-feeling for this 4th fl walk-up.  Our other objective here were to show prospective buyers how to incorporate a living area and a dining area in the main space.

blog102 - Copyblog101 - Copy

This room could technically be a bedroom, but we wanted to show prospective buyers a space for work or quiet relaxation, away from the main living room.  With the pocket doors open, the room almost feels like a little extension of the main living area, so we wanted to keep the look consistent.

10xx Clinton St Home Staging-Washington Square West-Center City- Philadelphia

This one bedroom flat is really large- huge windows, high ceilings, and just a ton of space!  It felt a little drab when it was empty, but now it feels like a great place for entertaining, with plenty of seating, and pops of fun color to spark up the party!

In this multi-split-level Center City home, we were working with a mixture of traditional meets contemporary.  The home featured custom drapery, antique pedestals, and  traditional paint colors, along with some super contemporary (even modern) light fixtures.  We love this look because it means NO RULES!!

In other news…  Here’s some staging pics!

66xx McCallum St Home Staging in Northwest Philadelphia

This beautiful stone monster of a 5-bedroom house was so nicely rehabbed, salvaging that original fireplace, floors, banister, and charming built-ins throughout.  Its technically in the city, but it feels more like a suburban home.  Since it’s in Mount Airy, which has a pretty artsy rep, we chose an eclectic mix of transitional, contemporary, and rustic furnishings.  That purple sofa just POPs against the white, making the home look extra fresh and clean!!  And the bold black/white/green combo keeps the freshness going throughout.

4xx S. 44th St Home Staging in West Philly

This type of layout is unusual in West Philly real estate.  The builder turned a huge old Victorian house into 3 flat-style condos with some original elements, and a bunch of modern amenity updates.  The layout was tricky because of the location of the entry door, combined with the stairway to the basement, and the ton of windows.  Question #1 for prospective buyers- “Where do we put the TV?”  We created an elegant but comfortable TV area, a secondary seating area in the front of the house, and a designated dining area.

20xx E. Hazzard St in Fishtown

This little gem of a two bedroom is the perfect starter home.  It’s small, but its got it all!  The cool, light colors keep it feeling airy, and the textures, prints and (faux) foliage make it feel homey.

Highlights from a Home Stager: The LOFT Edition- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

4 Jan

blogHappy New Year, everyone!!  We hope you had a great (and relaxing) holiday season.  We definitely enjoyed a little down timebut now we are we’re jumping right in to 2016.

Welcome to our last look at 2015: THE LOFT EDITION

Who doesn’t love a LOFT, right???  The complete and total essence of coolness…  Twenty foot ceilings… exposed pipes…  no walls…  undefined spaces that often make NO sense at all…

Yes, lofts are very awesome, but they can be a tough sell in Philadelphia.  They are often 1bedroom units, which limits the buying pool right away.  Beyond that, they do generally come with privacy issues (which can be resolved with a little creativity).

Many Philly lofts, of course, are converted from old factories.  The charm is in the rawness and original industrial details.  But, these raw empty spaces can appear very confusing with respect to furniture layout (with which we can assist).  And these gritty industrial spaces,on their own, can feel cold and uninviting (which we can change).

In short: Let us stage your loft before you try to sell it.

We will make it seem cozy-yet-chic, and like the most functional living quarters ever created!  It will probably sell faster, and for more money than if you try to sell it vacant.

Check out a few Sunflower Creations loft stagings from December 2015…

1xx Church St in Old City, Philadelphia

b1Our client had some nice pieces of furniture in the unit.

blog25We added to it with some pieces of our own, area rugs, art, and accessories.

b3blog24

Even though this is a 1bedroom unit, it feels like an entertaining space…  We wanted to show a nice large dining table, and a seating area that can hold a crowd.  We also made sure that we included a work area within the main living space.  For better or worse, the home office has become very important.  Prospective buyers want and need a designated work space.

5x N. Front St Home Staging in Old City, Philadelphia

blog3This condo is a personal favorite because it has so much quirky architectural detail.

The staircase featured above leads to NOWHERE!!  We accessorized it to give the indication that it would make a great built-in book shelving or display area.  (You could even furnish a petite recliner on the landing to create a reading nook)

And the huge window featured below stretches all the way down below ground level, into the basement bedroom.  (Stay tuned!)

blog4This loft space (below) off of the living room could definitely be a bedroom, but we chose to give the condo a designated office area as an alternative.blog8blog5The old hearth in the kitchen (above) is the perfect area for a storage console.blog6And, while the idea of a basement bedroom might seem undesirable, we wanted to capitalize on the elements that this one has going for it.  The exposed brick wall adds a layer of texture.  Even though it’s hard brick, it kind of softens the room.  And that huge 2 story window lets in great light, which is generally a major issue for basement rooms.  We added lots of pillows in the window bay, (and a little decorative step stool which you can’t see in this photo) to turn this unique feature into a charming and memorable little seating area.blog7(Click here for full property listing)

We’ve recently began to see more staging activity in the Chinatown/Market East portion of the city.  This loft is on the 9th story, with huge windows, high ceilings, and white walls- so its bright as can be!  Challenges are some of the slanted walls, space division, and the bonus space behind the kitchen, which you’ll see below.blog9We felt like this unit could handle lots of punches of bold colors.  With so much white on the walls, and the hardness of the industrial finishes, we really wanted to make the space feel warm and fun.blog10blog11blog12*Not every space can handle all those pops of red, so we use it selectively.  But, the red looks SO good in MLS photographs- really grabs your attention!blog13blog14blog15blog16Here’s that bonus room.blog17It would be pretty simple to close this room off, in order to make it a private bedroom.  I could be done with drywall, or it could be done with a long curtain rod and some panels.  We wanted prospective buyers to see that the space has bedroom potential, or could also be a great little den/office.
