Highlights of a Home Stager: Staging a Traditional Style Home

29 Mar

Traditional Homes are filled with a style all their own. We do our best to accentuate the unique qualities of a home.6893230_4_0A large cream dining room needs some color, but not anything that will contradict the refined wainscoting and original stained glass windows. Natural wood tones are the perfect addition.6893230_6_0Subtle window treatments, and a few accent pieces are all this kitchen needed.6893230_7_0A sun room breakfast nook is a great selling point in this home, so we did our best to create a space anyone would enjoy.6893230_10_0We used a combination of existing furniture and some of our own pieces in the sitting room.6893230_17_0Bold colors create interest in a mostly colorless room.6893230_22_0.jpgNew bedding puts a fresh spill on a traditional four poster bed 6893230_23_0The attic bedroom has a quaint feel with a monochromatic color scheme.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Staged and Sold After Only 2 Days!!

15 Mar

This lovely split level home was on the market for over two months before the realtor asked Sunflower to step in. The house had amazing features- a Jacuzzi tub, an entire floor devoted to the open kitchen and dining area, large bedrooms, and a cozy entry living room- but buyers had a hard time seeing its potential with the bare walls and empty rooms.

ISuoyvk69zyp1t0000000000.jpg

When potential buyers came in their first impression was of a small living space, and were left to wonder, ‘Could I fit a couch in here?’ Now, there is no question that this space can house a comfortable living area.

The dining room is also looked to be on the smaller side when empty, but adding a sizable table and six dining chairs shows that looks can be deceiving.

6899565_5_5

Using a king mattress really shows future buyers just how large this master bedroom is.

6899565_13_5

The bathroom could sell itself, in my opinion, but a few accessories never hurt!

6899565_16_5

Just a little bit more proof that staging really works!

Highlights of a Home Stager: Neutrals!

8 Feb

You can’t go wrong with neutrals! They’re calming and easy to see yourself in.27972583

Blue is a great color to use with neutrals. It adds color, but not in an overwhelming way.

Flowers and plants are a great way to add color to a room.

Check out our colorful staging showcased in Trinity Tuesday!

25 Jan

Every once in a while we get clients who ask for a lot of color. We LOVE those clients! It’s a nice change of pace to create fun, bright, livable spaces. Don’t get me wrong, neutral colors can be beautiful and are great when it comes to staging, but sometimes bright colors and fun fabrics can make your listing more memorable.isy70599oqeh880000000000

Bright colors aren’t for everyone, but they sure do get your attention.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Designing with Neutrals

14 Dec

Designing with colors is always fun, and when done correctly it can look very sleek. However, most peoples idea of a sleek home involves neutral and muted colors. Neutrals are also great for staging, because they appeal to the masses.

30146512956_64383bfd6c_o

In this living room, for example, we used a monochromatic color scheme that pulls in different whites and grays. The variation of  textures-reflective chromes, soft velvets, sleek leather, and numerous patterns- adds a level of interest and keeps the neutrals from becoming dull and boring.

29552112344_77f2d2ee13_o

29552141383_c53c0a7a14_o

The dining room continues the use of neutrals and multiple textiles. A pop of natural greenery gives the room the little bit of color it needed.

29552143593_6faccfde90_o

This well lit home office is a soothing retreat that does not depart from the decor of the home.

30146509366_0917c189b3_o

Simple art work in the monochromatic style gives a the room added interest.

Highlights of a Home Stager: Large Living Spaces

30 Nov

A large living space is often on home buyers check list, however a wide open living room can seem daunting and unfurnishable to some.

6790eccd5ff74da-6882499

Breaking up a larger space into three distinct smaller spaces will make an over-sized living room more manageable.

An intimate sitting area perfect for morning coffee.

A spacious home office is very marketable.

And there is still plenty of room for entertaining!

A smaller dining room requires smaller furniture.

Highlights of a Home Stager: The Roxborough Row

16 Nov

When it comes to row homes awkward spaces and small bedrooms are always a hurdle, and this Roxborough Row was no exception. While it had some challenges, it was nothing our team couldn’t handle!

isu4r43yb7kgl21000000000

Many row homes have these notches in the walls where the chimney was built. An awkward notch out in a living room wall can seem like a deal breaker to potential buyers. We used a layout that proves a notch doesn’t have to be overly intrusive.

ismyoskr7zbjl21000000000

is6mk4kezivol21000000000

The owners wanted a modern feel for this home. A black and red color scheme along with some key modern fixtures, the bent wood dining chairs and the red streamlined sofa, give in a fresh young look.

isuk74iba6i5m21000000000is6214zrxhtdm21000000000

isiju3g8lt4mm21000000000

Small bedrooms are always a concern in row homes. Without any furniture, buyers are left to wonder if small rooms can realistically be used as a bedroom. A day bed and a desk placed strategically show the potential a small space has to offer.

Highlights from a Home Stager: October 2015, Part 2- Sunflower Creations, Philadelphia, PA

20 Oct

Old homes, new homes- We do it all, and we gotcha covered…

blog1Washington Square West- *Sold in 10 Days*

This first property was built in 1916 (for those of us who don’t like math, that’s 99 years ago).  In our experience, many people want old homes, in theory.  Nothing says charm like original hard wood floors, brick fire places, and antique fixtures.  But, older homes tend to show poorly because they often lack the clean lines that look great in photos, and they usually have little in the way of overhead lighting.  What’s more, when empty, potential buyers have nothing to focus their attention on except the flaws that come with age.

True Story:

This Center City town home sat vacant on the MLS for 200 days…

We staged it on day 201, and and by day 211, the property was pending sale…

Fairmount/Art Museum Area Gut Rehab

Now, this fancy pad is brand-new-everything in a 100 year old shell.  The building has been standing for a century, but for all intensive purposes, its a new home.  Much like most of Philly’s modern construction homes, you’ll see raised ceilings with lots of overhead light, open floor plans, fresh hardwood floors…  And, this home also has extra-special luxury features hiding around every corner.

The key to staging homes like these is really to soften them up.  Since everything is new inside, the home is pretty pristine- so much so, that it can feel sterile on it’s own.  The addition of textiles makes an incredible difference in the potential buyer’s emotional response when he/she enters the home.
