Home Staging really brings your property to life – as a home staging expert i enjoy adding a variety of interesting pieces of furniture to capture the buyers eye. A fresh colour palette is a must, i recommend dulux colours for great tones. I like to replace old lighting to enliven the space and add some charm to the home.
From the moment i drive up the drive i get a sense of the homes appeal and whether it stands out from the crowd. As an Interior Designer who has Styled and Staged many homes, i believe a home has to have good street presence as well as beautifully staged rooms. I love a fresh clean house and i often engage my cleaners to do windows, floors and mirrors to add sparkle prior to any Home Staging plan.
Having styled and staged many homes including display homes, i feel staging really adds value to any property and showcases it’s finer points to attract more buyers. I love preparing all of the elements, and lighting with furniture items in a format that communicates within a space – home staging creates a story and buyers love that.
I love working with a fresh canvas and most of my clients will ask me about paint and flooring combinations – it is all about texture, colour, tone and floors need to be functional and high traffic areas need resistant flooring. I feel a great sense of achievement when completing a Home Staging design, where the owner of the home is amazed by the transformation and where the buyers come in droves on open home day!
As a project manager in the design makeover i can take a very ordinary home and make it look outstanding with minimal cost – my clients are ever so amazed. I’ve been told it’s a real gift i have in working with my team to create beautifully staged homes, and I am always told how creative and professional we are. We are renown for completing things with ease in a speedy time-frame.
My clients ask me if i can work with some of their furniture items and mix and match the look and i do, as it keeps costs down and makes the staging interesting – there is something beautiful and unique when the owner hands me a rare find – it adds real charm and makes for a great photo shoot.
When i am out inspecting homes one thing that i am always looking for, is the homes potential – with minimal cost. Styling items generally pop out at me, it could be a simple rustic urn that sets the scene or a perfumed scented blossom or a picket fence – for me, these are the elements that begin the home staging creativity, and what really draws in a buyer on open home day.
We look forward to Home Staging your home and creating an experience that vendors and buyers will adore.
