Highlights From a Home Stager: Northwest Philly Rehabbed Home

3 Jan

Happy 2018!  We really hope it was a safe, peaceful and happy holiday season for you all.  And, we also hope you are easing back into the work realm with smiles and grace!

We are rested and back at it- because Philadelphia is busting with new homes, improved homes, and sellers on the move.

If you are preparing to list, or if you have clients who are preparing to list, calling us should be on your to-do list.  For vacant home staging, a consult 2-3 week’s prior to intended completion date is ideal.  And in the case of occupied home staging, the more time we have prior to listing, the more we can help you perfect your product.  So, contact Ali at akutner@sunflowercreationsonline.com or 267.207.9898 to get that ball rolling.

Here’s some staging pics from a rehabbed property in Germantown- staged and sold in 2017.

We were expecting a young family would be the lucky buyers for this 4 bedroom gut rehab in the artsy and eclectic Germantown neighborhood of Northwest Philadelphia.  So, we wanted to use some contemporary and colorful pieces that would feel fun and familiar to a younger market of buyers.  You’ll see some vintage charm, a little global flare and some kitsch mixed in for good measure…

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!!

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.

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!

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!)

Huge Rehabbed Home Staging in West Mount Airy by Sunflower Creations

19 Apr

What a fun project this was!

This big old house has fireplaces in 4 of the rooms we staged.  Also, notice the curved out window areas in several of the rooms, and this large entry area, pictured above.

All of these features add loads of character, but also loads of confusing space planning questions for potential buyers–Glad the seller decided to stage!!

upsal5 upsal9 upsal11

As you can see, in this staging, we still used contemporary pieces- because that creates the most appeal for most potential buyers.  But we definitely leaned toward a more traditional look in our choices of artwork and decoration.
