Highlights From a Home Stager: Sunflower Creations quick pics from a few fab faves

26 Dec

Hi Everybody!

Happy holidays, and thanks so much for hanging with us all year!  Since we’re all really busy and distracted this time of year, we thought we’d keep it light this time (as opposed to the usual heavy staging stuff we drop around here…).  We just wanted to post a few more staging pics that we haven’t had a chance to share yet.  Here’s three very different types of properties that were staged and sold this fall.

We wish you a healthy, happy, and safe holiday season- and we look forward to seeing you all in January!  Until we meet again…

Logan Square

Here’s a few pictures from a very high-end, very modern occupied home staging we worked on.  The sellers brought us in for staging consultation and to fill in with furnishings in a few empty rooms.  This luxury listing sold in a matter of days.

221

They had this huge room on the entry level that we staged as an In-law/ Au Pair suite.  We included a living area, sleeping area, and office area.  Loved the way it turned out!

222

223

This is a small bonus space on the 4th floor, which also housed 2 additional bedrooms/baths.  So, we turned it into a kid-oriented living room with TV and game table/homework station.

224

We polished up the amazing roof deck using the homeowner’s existing items.  Just moved a few things around, added a rug and some posh accessories…

 

Graduate Hospital

In spite of the sophisticated marble fireplace mantle, crown moldings, and 11 foot ceilings, I thought this house had a really jovial spirit about it!  We were able to bring in a few quirky and eclectic items that felt right at home:)

chr1

We used a blue sofa/love seat combo that kind of recedes into the space.  But the pops of orange jump right out at ya!

chr2

chr3

There’s a lot going on in this kitchen.  We wanted to show off those glass shelves and the large amount of counter space without creating a feeling of too much clutter or chaos.

chr4

The mono-tone furnishings help preserve some order in the space.

 

Bala Cynwyd

And here’s a charming farmhouse chic rehab that we staged in the suburban Main Line.

 

b1

This property is very warm and cozy- and also boasts a feeling of luxurious refinement.

b2

We wanted to keep it bright, and white, and light and airy!

Highlights from a Home Stager: MULTIPLE OFFERS IN CENTER CITY- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia

20 Apr

15xx Montrose St-  We barely had this Center City home staging set up before the offers started pourin’ in!  Not a huge surprise because the Grad Hospital location is stellar, the home was very well-maintained, and the sellers really had every detail in order before listing…

27_6753654_2_1458653276_636x435

The sellers’ biggest concerns were (1) competing against new construction, and (2) the main living space is very narrow.  But they completed every tiny repair that needed to be done.  They consulted us for a paint color update, and we chose a contemporary grey that worked with their existing finishes and helped to visually open up the space.  And, they chose to stage the living room, dining area, kitchen, basement (to show additional living space), master bedroom, and additional bedroom (to show that a full sized bed fits comfortably in the space).

27_6753654_3_1458653276_636x435

We don’t think they could have asked for a better result-

8 OFFERS IN 3 DAYS!!!  Staged & Sold!!

Highlights from a Home Stager: RECENT FAVES Edition

30 Mar

I’m not gonna lie- I just couldn’t think of a great underlying theme for this weeks post.  So, friends, I’m just gonna give it to ya’ straight- Here’s a little collection of some of my favorite stagings our team has put together in the past couple of weeks!

SOUTH PHILLY:  8XX Pierce St in East Passyunk

STAGED & SOLD in 1 Weekend!!

27_6686574_1_1457750423_636x435

I love this one because I thought the staging really brought out the beauty in the character of the house.  The walls are painted in slightly darker colors than most South Philly rehabs that we see, and the stained natural wood accents are unusual as well.  The hardwood floors are beautiful, but also bring a lot of personality to the space.

So, we really wanted to do a staging that honored the classic elements of the home, but made it feel very contemporary at the same time.  We also chose to stick with solid blocks of neutral colors in the furnishings and area rugs, and I think that really helped to soften and blend the natural wood tones  into the space.

27_6686574_4_1457750424_636x43527_6686574_5_1457750424_636x43527_6686574_7_1457750424_636x435

NORTHWEST PHILLY:  78xx Provident Rd in West Oaklane

Just for a little perspective, the first shot is the vacant space before the staging…  Look at the difference!

27_6730666_2_1457748800_636x43527_6730666_5_1457748801_636x435

Maybe it’s just that chair, but when we were finished with this staging, I kinda wanted to stay and relax in this house!  I love how the lighting is really bright, yet soft at the same time.  It felt very cozy and comfortable- which is exactly the feeling we were trying to create.

WISSAHICKON:  44xx Mitchell St in Roxborough

27_6745895_2_1457579374_636x435

When I walked into this vacant property, it had a bit of a “surfer bungalo” vibe.  It’s not a bungalo at all, but I think I was feeling the wood-paneled island, the vintage/industrial style pendants, and the amazing sliding barn door (below)…  And it felt a little artsy- which I LOVE!

27_6745895_13_1457579376_636x435

It’s the Wissahickon- it’s down to earth, nature-loving, casual (but still classy)- and, its my ‘hood- so there’s a lot of pride in this one!  We really wanted to create living areas that felt hip, comfortable, and multi-functional.  (I’d want to live in this house!)

27_6745895_4_1457579375_636x43527_6745895_16_1457579376_636x43527_6745895_11_1457579376_636x43527_6745895_18_1457579377_636x435

Home Staging Highlights from Sunflower Creations- Philadelphia’s Home Stagers- June, 2015

22 Jun

Mount Airy Home Staging

This charming property had been on the market for a couple of months, and was not getting buyer attention.  It just needed a little bit of punch!  We mixed in some contemporary with some of the homeowner’s more traditional style.  Even in a more traditional space, contemporary staging adds energy and translates well to potential buyers.

Great family home- turned rental- turned reno in Bala Cynwyd.  Check out the special bonus detached studio space we staged as an office…

Charming East Falls Row Home

This is an adorable little house with some challenging spaces, and a need for bright lighting.  After several months on the market, we were called in to assist. Take notice of the living room layout- we created 2 separate-but-unified areas to show how to utilize the space.

Voorhees, New Jersey Suburban Town Home

–Under Contract in under 2 weeks!!–

And we could not be more thrilled for this family!  We came by to see the house several months back, when these sellers were just getting ready to begin preparing the home for sale.  They did such a great job with every detail, the home looked phenomenal, and the staging pics came out fab!

Hard to believe we are almost in June!  Where has the time gone?

Well, May was very good to us, although it didn’t leave us much down time:

  • One of our staged properties was featured on HGTV’s series “A Sale of Two Cities”.
  • Amanda returned from furniture shopping at High Point Market, and every day we are receiving new furniture deliveries for staging pieces and for design clients.

  • And, our staged properties have been selling faster than we can say,

“Sunflower Creations, how can we help you?”

Here’s a few of our Favorite Photos from May:

Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia’s Home Stagers- Early March 2015

17 Mar

Well, we trudged through the snow, we battled the ice, and we staged lots of homes in the city and the suburbs…

Here’s what we’ve got for you today!

New Construction in Point Breeze

blog1This beautiful home has a very small living room and no formal dining space.  Adding furniture made the living room feel more spacious.  And, we were able to show additional living (and possibly dining) space in the finished basement.  Seems like a fun place to have your friends over!blog2 blog3 blog4 blog5(Click here to see full property listing)

Even with snow on the ground, the huge windows make you feel like your in Florida- and we love that, right about now!
The home owners decided to do some updates, and put this baby on that market.  And they called us to stage it, because a staged home sells better than an empty one!

When we first came out to see this home, the walls were just filled with fun, bright colors.  We suggested repainting some of the bolder areas in neutrals for resale, because potential buyers tend to prefer a blank slate.  But we brought some color right back in with furniture and accessories.blog17 blog18 blog19 blog20 blog21(Click here to see full property listing)

Sunflower Creations Home Staging Highlights, January 2015

3 Feb

blog2It’s been an active January, with a record number of stagings and 8 new properties under contract!  And, it looks like there will be little down-time heading into Spring because Philly is bursting at the seams with new construction and newly-renovated homes that need staging!

Sorry to be repetitive– but if you are new to our blog, or to the idea of home staging, we’ve gotta quickly tell you why staging helps homes sell quicker, and for more money, than non-staged homes.

  • Get more people in the door.  Attract more potential buyers with more click-able MLS photos.  Pictures of empty rooms are bland, colorless, shapeless and boring, and fewer people will want to look at them.  Staged property photos provide spacial reference, shapes and color.  More people click, which leads to more showings, which leads to more interested parties, which leads to greater demand for the property, which leads to higher sale price.
  • You have some explaining to do.  Most potential buyers can not visualize the space with furniture in it.  This is hard to believe for developers, who make a living on being able to visualize the finished product.  But, it’s true- Many people will not know where to put the sofa, where to put the TV, can they fit a full bed in the middle bedroom, etc.  Staging helps define overwhelming spaces in large homes, and show maximum functionality in small homes.
  • Turn “potential buyers” into “buyers”.  Staging makes a house feel like a home.  We call it “the warm-and-fuzzies”, that emotional response that makes potential buyers want to move right in to your property- versus the other 15 properties they’ve already looked at.  Staging will show them an idealized version of their life in their new home.

Here’s a look at two upscale rehabs in Grad Hospital, plus some fun stuff in funky Fishtown, Pennsport, and Fairmount:
