Highlights from a Home Stager: 3 Bedroom home in Graduate Hospital

17 Aug

This three story row home is in a great neighborhood on an adorable little side street.

27_6833942_1_1469544236

Staging the entire first floor makes for a great first impression. So much better than walking into a home with bare walls, don’t you think?

27_6833942_6_1469544237

This row how has a smaller living space on the first floor. We used a small round table, with only three chairs to make the dining room look bigger. The glass table top also gives the illusion of more room by not taking up any visual space.

Additional dining was added to the kitchen bar, while also adding a pop of color in the mostly grey first floor.

27_6833942_17_1469544239

The bedroom uses a sophisticated pallet of deep purples and grays, with a pop of green thanks to some strategically placed plants. This welcoming layout really showcases the size of this master bedroom.

And, we didn’t forget the mini bar! Who wouldn’t want a mini fridge right inside their balcony door. We added some accessories to ensure that this neat fixture didn’t get over looked by perspective home owners.

Warm Cheerful Staging Fairmount-Spring Garden Philadelphia

18 Nov

Last week we had to the opportunity to stage this beautiful home in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia.

The dining room walls are very colorful to accent the warmth of the yellow we used ivory furniture. The table is set with soft flowers and a pop of red to incorporate other rooms. The area rug under the table adds subtle texture and pattern to the space. While the mirrored piece of art adds some geometric lines to the room and enhances the brightness.

Tip: Add a mirror across from a window and it will reflect light into a room.

The upstairs den in this house has warm walls. We took neutral colors and a coordinating color to soften the walls. The accent color we used is yellow, which is associated with joy and energy. We wanted to fuse the same color scheme in each room so the entire house looks cohesive. The coffee table we picked has a glass top to help the space feel lighter and brighter, while the base is a a dark geometric.

Odgen_bath_01

The bathroom needed a few accessories to liven the taupe colored walls up. Use flowers to soften and add some organic lines throughout the space.

Odgen_bedroom_01

Odgen_bedroom_02

Odgen_bedroom_03

In the bedroom we incorporated contrasting colors such as this red found throughout the house. The dark color brings a comforting nature to this space. The pop of colors in the flower and lamps tie in this color scheme and do not overpower the room. Using a neutral and patterned area rug, gives the room another layer of color and texture.

Thanks for keeping up!  Look forward to more posts over the next few weeks as we fill you in on our adventures during the fall season.

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.

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:

Northern Liberties Condo Pics- Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

17 Oct

2nd1This two bedroom condo has great light, a super-cool loft space, and fabulous roof deck.  We wanted to make it fun and youthful, but still sophisticated in style.  Such is the Northern Liberties market!

2nd2In terms of accessories, we were going for minimum clutter, maximum impact.

Here’s a favorite:

2nd5 2nd4

Loved the color in this bedroom.  It was the inspiration for the scheme we used throughout the unit.

And, mixing frill with some industrial elements gave the space an edge feel.  Perfect for this condo!2nd3

Pennsport Rehab Under Contract in 20 Days! Home Staging by Sunflower Creations

9 Oct

Interesting fact from RESA (Real Estate Staging Association):

In controlled tests selling identical homes, professionally staged vs. those not staged, the non-staged houses sold in 102 days, while the staged houses sold in 45 days.

538moore

 

This rehabber has a great talent for designing for the unknown buyer.  Her rehabs are always sophisticated, yet fun, and they always sell quickly.

She adds great modern details (like this terrific lime green accent wall), while keeping with the integrity of the original home.  And, she has a good sense of where staging is needed to fill in the gaps.

We staged the upstairs bedrooms, to add some interest for MLS photos and showings, and to provide space planning assistance in small rooms.
