Check out our colorful staging showcased in Trinity Tuesday!

25 Jan

Every once in a while we get clients who ask for a lot of color. We LOVE those clients! It’s a nice change of pace to create fun, bright, livable spaces. Don’t get me wrong, neutral colors can be beautiful and are great when it comes to staging, but sometimes bright colors and fun fabrics can make your listing more memorable.isy70599oqeh880000000000

Bright colors aren’t for everyone, but they sure do get your attention.

Highlights of a Home Stager: The Living Room Edition

19 Oct

The communal living space in a home is where family and friends come together, which makes it one of the most important selling aspects. Potential home buyers want to be able to see themselves in the home, and staging the living room makes it easier for them to do so.

6805202_5_1

Sectionals are a great way to show that both a love seat and a sofa can fit in the space, without making the room feel cluttered.

is6qnhr42bupnq0000000000

Adding an over-sized ottoman as a coffee table gives the illusion of more seating.

27_6866418_14_1475076865

In a small room, a sectional gives more seating without taking up much more floor space.

isa56hsa4ah6d30000000000

Of course, when you have the room, a matching sofa/love seat combination really showcases all the room has to offer.

is6y16yfry5j7f0000000000

In square shaped living rooms, facing accent chairs towards the sofa creates a space for entertaining.

is6e2xby4q6qdw1000000000

The T.V. doesn’t always have to be the focal point of a living room.

6805202_17_1

Accent chairs are a great way to add a pop of color, pattern, or texture to any room!

You can show the multi-functionality of a living room but simply adding a desk, creating an in-home office.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Main Line Detailing

14 Sep

Vacant home staging isn’t all we do here at Sunflower Creations- we also detail homes that already have furnishing! Decluttering is key, and we often swap in some fresh new furniture to liven up the home.

This home in Northern Liberties had a mix-matched style that didn’t quite seem intentional.

6804477_2_0

Family heirlooms can be a great treasure. Unfortunately, they don’t always match our decor style.

27_6853262_20_1472756196

A more coherent style creates less distractions for potential buyers. (Decluttering and staging the shelf unit doesn’t hurt either!)

6804477_8_0

This living room looks very lived in and homey, however the personal touches can overwhelm potential buyers and distract from the potential your home has to offer.

27_6853262_4_1472756191

Neutral art work and a new layout brings the focus back to the home rather than the clutter. The indoor outdoor fireplace, a major selling point, is now proudly on display.

6804477_6_0

Family dining is an important feature to highlight when trying to sell your home.

27_6853262_10_1472756192

Restoring the home office back to its original dining room functionality will appeal to more buyers.

27_6853262_6_1472756192

27_6853262_8_1472756192

And don’t forget to show off any additional seating!

6804477_12_0

While going neutral is usually a safe bet when trying to sell your home, a little personality can sometimes make all the difference.

27_6853262_19_1472756195

6804477_13_0

Too many patterns can be distracting.

27_6853262_17_1472756195

Neutral bedding can help calm things down.

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.

Bella Vista Philadelphia Home Staging

3 Jun

It’s about to get lofty!  I think the team at Sunflower would agree that every home staging we do offers its own charm and character.  They have a personality each to their own.  This property in beautiful Bella Vista located in the Hawthorne Lofts is no exception.  I’ll stop chattering on and let the photos do the talking.

We hope you enjoyed this brief tour of our home staging in Bella Vista.  If you have a property that needs home staging or a designers touch please contact amanda@sunflowercreationsonline.com  We do everything from traditional homes in Ambler to lofts in Center City Philadelphia.  As always, thanks for keeping up!

Philadelphia Turn-Key Interior Design-Part 3

22 Dec

Oh boy oh boy oh boy!  Finally ready to share the final part in our turn-key interior design series (see part 1 & 2).  I think I’ve said it before but I absolutely love how this pieds–à–terre came together.  My pride and joy in this design is the master suite.  Fully equip with a sitting area and stunning outdoor terrace this master suite is to-die.

Immediately upon entering I was struck by the natural light flooding the room and the original fireplace.  The terrace off of the room is reminiscent of Paris hence the French provincial inspiration.  We used a monochromatic neutral scheme and played with natural textures including linen and burlap to create interest and depth.  The neutral palette keeps it soft and serene.

Oh and the light fixture, yeah it’s made of faux feathers, LOVE!

So Much New Construction in Fishtown!! Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

18 Nov

letterly1Often, in new construction homes and rehabbed properties, spaces are designed to be very, very neutral.  The idea is to make the property beautiful, luxurious and upscale, but appeal to the masses in order to attract the greatest number of interested buyers.

As Stagers, we bring the mood, the warmth, and the energy.  We play detective a little bit, and try to figure out WHO our buyer will be in the end.   Then, we try to appeal to him/her based on our design knowledge and expertise.

This project was a little bit different–  The builder of this Fishtown treasure made some really unique design choices that gave the home a spirit of its own.  Check out the diagonal direction of the hard wood floors, that makes the space feel very open.

IMG_8834 IMG_8835

The kitchen’s apron front sink, exaggerated drawer pulls,  and white subway tile back-splash bring an element of ultra-modern sleek to this gourmet kitchen.

And take a gander at these bathroom finishes…

letterly5

IMG_8822

We followed suit, and chose pieces that would accent and enhance these fun features.

So, needless to say, the BRIGHT GREEN accent wall in the main living space was a big no-brainer!

Purple is an awesome contrast, and the silver accents are a little edgy…

IMG_8832IMG_8828 IMG_8830  IMG_8829

A little mixture of industrial with more traditional pieces is fun, and appealing to a wide range of lookers.

IMG_8836

IMG_8831

And finally, the relaxing, serene master bedroom.

This is the view out the window:

Point Breeze Rehab- Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

15 Nov

Although we are coming to the end of the busy, busy, BUSY Fall Market, we are still staging away like crazy!!

Since our entire business is built on our reputation,

and our reputation is built on the presentations we put out,

we are always trying to keep our stagings fresh and new.

As we head into the quieter months, a major focus for us is examining our inventory in order to retire the older pieces, and make room the new ones…

Keep checking our blogs to see all the great new pieces that we’re bringing in!

Here’s a property that we just did in the Point Breeze neighborhood of South Philly.  You can read the full listing description by clicking on this link.

We’ve been gravitating towards yellows lately!

They are perky for summer, sophisticated for fall, and cozy for winter–  It all depends on your color pairing…

IMG_8862  IMG_8864

We’ve had our eyes on this antique-washed cabinet with mirrored doors for a while now!4 IMG_8848 5 6

This awesome washboard-look dresser was the inspiration for this bedroom–

Black, white, and shades of brown with lots of pattern and texture.

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!

Rehabbed Home in South Philly’s Up-and-Coming Pennsport- Staging by Sunflower Creations

8 Nov

moore2We did this staging over the summer (we’ve been super busy, and are JUST starting to catch up on our blogs, etc).  The house is a beautiful renovated row home on Moore St. in Pennsport.  Looking back at the photos, I really love the bold color punches!  It looks very neat and clean.

Moore1 moore3

We started out with a black, white, and turquise “less-is-more” design on the first floor, and it seems to have carried on up the stairs, as well.

Our client chose to have us stage the two smaller bedrooms, because rooms really do feel larger with the right furniture in them.

So, we did a twin set up for  a child’s room, and a full set up, which would be ideal for a teenager:
