Highlights From a Home Stager: Industrial Living

19 Sep

This industrial apartment has it all! Exposed brick, high ceilings, a ton of space, and in the heart of Old City, to boot!

We worked with the bold red accent wall with some contrasting navy throw pillows. Wood accents give the home a warm lived-in feeling.

This structural brick wall could be a source of confusion for potential buyers. We gave the wall a purpose by creating a perfect little reading nook in the corner.

The spacious bedrooms are complete with endless exposed and white washed brick walls. Some neutral bedding and wooden side tables allow the brick to be the main attraction! We had a great time designing this beautiful apartment! I’m sorry to say it’s already been snatched off the market. Yet another Staged & Sold property under our belts!

Highlights of a Home Stager: Loft Living

5 Sep

We’ve got another small space showcase for you! This one was even more of a challenge than our Spring Garden Condo- we had to fit a bedroom into this small space!SD6cLkglYhgdXl38UVsHBX2yGLhKNRd-xp2loG2PXzWLy7gIw5Jz2wfMMCHjwisNjv5UQT6Aj2y90AtmOuPW0VXYVITvqhaxbm1P4ZJlxIE.jpg

Not only did we fit a bed, but also an office, living room, and small dining area! That’s all you really need when you’re living in the heart of Rittenhouse Square!L8NqOZRUEoeBxTqNvGsewYmVce379MuiqwRNpe1-eplfuVk9npy-BPnNfnlFA6ddZvKGmVA7ZT0IxgLWUSqy4Ub_gwPFdswaREfjPKqBaAk

Tucking the bed to one side, we created enough space for a small living area, complete with a desk for those work from home days.feWBK7HRNHpG4cd-BN-I30viVABL_c5urNceO3epfE6Sk5czwjkHEFco_tW23UDezQ5GcUUBLq1Dd8HxijiAPhRyDNjSYo4YZ9_VInrRiNc (1)

The final product was a fun and funky loft, perfect for a young professional.

Highlights from a Home Stager: A Converted Factory Loft in Old City, Philadelphia

9 Jan

Who doesn’t love an industrial space that’s been converted to a residence?  Surely there must be someone out there, but ya ain’t gonna find them in this blog post…

Here’s some pics from a late 2017 staging at Old City’s River Church Condominiums.

27_7064381_0_1512755081

We’ve worked in this building a few times over the years, and these units always excite me because each one is just so unique.  The developer left so many of the original features intact, and really created a living space to fit the existing layout.  I think that is really cool!

This unit’s entry level includes an entry hall/full bath, and this loft bedroom space.

If you look over the railing, you can see down to the lower level living space- open layout Living/Dining/Kitchen.

Downstairs is this amazing unexpected living space!  Some say small, but we say SO cozy!  And look…  there’s a place for everything!

Beautiful modern kitchen with a nice amount of workspace…

Not sure what these alcoves were originally, but we love having them!  This one is where we keep the booze:)

Highlights From a Home Stager: Hands-Down, the Coolest House in Philly

6 Dec

No offense to all other houses, but this one takes the prize for awesome-

Standing on the street in Northern Liberties, one would never know that behind an inconspicuous industrial garage door lies this incredible, self-contained residential oasis.

4th13

This courtyard/Zen Garden is the absolute perfect place to relax and enjoy the meditative sights and sounds of the water feature and Koi pond.

4th1And here are a few aerial shots of the interior, just to give you a sense of the whole space:

4th11

Just an FYI tidbit- the TV room floor is the original cobblestone from when this land was a cross street.  And, that plexi-glass panel in the ground is encasing a well that was excavated during the renovation.  You can still see water levels rise and fall.

4th104th9So, we were called in a couple of years ago when the homeowners first began thinking about selling.  Through a series of walk-thrus, revisions, and fine tuning, we were able to help these homeowners get this property in prime shape for listing.  And, once listed, the sellers got their asking price in less than 3 weeks- which I really can’t say is a surprise…  The place is amazing, and they really followed our staging advise to the letter.

This is a great example of how a staging consultation can help you sell your home.  In this case, the majority of the furniture belongs to the homeowners.

4th2

We provided recommendations on pieces that worked well for staging, and items that needed to be toned down, amped up, or adjusted.  We also provided supplementary art/accessories where needed.  This enabled the home owners to move the vast majority of their belongings out of the home prior to listing, which made their move more orderly in the long-run.

4th5

We assisted the homeowners by providing a neutral eye.  This, in turn, helped them showcase all the right features.  Clearly, they had a good sense of design because they created the space.  But it’s often helpful to get an outside perspective to help see a home through the eyes of the prospective buyer.    In this case, the space, itself, is really the focal point.  The prospective buyer is clearly going to need to fall in love with the space, or not get it at all.  It’s just that kind of home.  So, we did a lot of editing.  We wanted the property to really be the main event here- and everything else was kind of just dressing to show function and warmth.  The key was finding the right balance.

4th4

4th3

In “His” office, we spent a great deal of time on simplifying the built-in shelves that were packed with books and collectibles.  The owners were really great about following our recommendations.

4th6

And, we helped create a “Her” office/studio space out of what had previously been used as a bike room.  We provided area rugs, furnishings and art where needed– but the large majority of the items were already there for us.  Just a matter of moving some things around…

4th9

4th7

In the rear portion of the home, we made a few layout adjustments in order to maximize use of the space, and in order to differentiate the spaces from the other sitting/eating areas in the front of the home.  Notice the very clean-lined and simple styling of the décor- This property needs so little in terms of “frills”.

4th8

And finally, this common area that connects the three 2nd floor bedrooms-  The homeowners had previously used this as gallery space for their art collection.  We wanted to make it function in a way that would feel at home to any prospective buyer.  So we created this relaxation area to feel like a really cozy place where you can drink your coffee on a Sunday morning, or cuddle up with a book late at night
