Highlights from a Home Stager: TRADITIONAL MOUNT AIRY RESTORATION PROJECT- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

12 Jun

We had SO much fun in this AMAZING restored Mount Airy mansion of a home!  Let me first show you a couple of the incredible features that we had absolutely nothing to do with..

The woodwork is just incredible- through out the entire home…

There are multiple enclosed sun rooms…

This is a fountain room…  I mean, this kind of made me think– should we even be working in homes that don’t have a fountain room???

They managed to make this massive modern kitchen fit in perfectly in an otherwise completely traditional home…

And, while this may not be the best example- pay attention to the plaster work throughout the house…

Here we have the formal living room.

Since there is so much going on, between the woodwork, and the plaster work, and the details, light fixtures, etc-  We wanted to keep our part pretty simple.  Solid pillows, a little greenery, and very few additional accessories.- In a space like this, we think less is more.

We created a second seating area in this massive dining room.  Of course, at one time, there would have been a dividing wall right down the middle.  But opening up the space allows for a modern open floor plan lifestyle on this side of the home, while preserving the sanctity of the formal living room on the other side of the grand entry.  Opening the space also lets in so much amazing light from the back of the house. (Here’s those plaster ceilings I was talking about)

Speaking of light- We chose a light color palate in our upholstered pieces, in order to balance out the heaviness of the dark wood.  But we went with darker wood tones in our “hard” furnishings in order to blend with the finishes of the home.

The lovely breakfast table in the eat-in kitchen…

Highlights from a Home Stager: A TRADITIONAL NEWER CONSTRUCTION HOME IN MANAYUNK- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

1 Jun

New clients often ask us how we categorize our style of design.  We tell them that, overall, we consider our staging style to be contemporary- regardless of the style of the home, contemporary furnishing feels crisp, neat, and fresh.  This is generally the is the image you want to project toward prospective buyers when they come to visit the home.

That said, we always take into consideration the style of the subject property, and how that transfers over to the prospective buyer.  From there, we tailor our work to enhance the style of the home.  And in this particular home, we went with a more transitional staging.

This beauty was built in 2011, and offers every modern luxury one could want.  You’ll notice that it has a bit of an Old World/European influence- with the Juliet balconies, wainscoting, and fancy stonework facade.

Overall, Manayunk is a fun little town in the Northwest pocket of Philadelphia.  It’s known for having lots of restaurants, clubs, shops, festivals, and hills (Speaking of which, we are actually just days away from the legendary Manayunk Bike Race on June 5th).  But back to staging…the buyer of this home is going to be someone who is looking to live right in the middle of it all.  We wanted to make it fun, comfortable, and relaxed, but in a grown-up sort of way.

We actually based a great deal of our selections around the homeowner’s existing curtains (which I LOVE!).  They seemed to really encapsulate the over-all feeling of the home.  The colors are subdued, the texture is light and airy, the drapery is elegant, and the design is sophisticated without being stuffy.
