Staging helps sell Homes

We recently staged a Downtown Hamilton condo that sold within 2 days!

For staging this condo, we based our colour theme on the seller’s red and green existing artwork. We brought in our fun, green shaggy pillow set (new to our staging inventory) and red faux centrepiece accent balls to make the living room pop as potential home buyers entered from the hallway. We decluttered their TV shelf stand to showcase larger accent vases to anchor the space. When there are pets involved, it’s hard not to include them in the staging photos like their cute pet birds in this case. (But they didn’t mind the spotlight.)

Spring has Sprung! Time for Staging.

Spring has Sprung … and the real estate market in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, is beyond HOT. We mean HOT! We’ve been busy staging several homes in and around the Hamilton surrounding area. We’ve received compliments (from both clients and potential buyers as they pass through) on our staging so that always brings a smile to our face.

We walk room to room with the seller in helping them declutter their spaces to get their home ready for a sale. We bring our wide range of inventory to complement the clients’ existing décor.  For Open House day, we like to suggest bringing in fresh flowers and/or fresh fruit for their kitchen table or even their front hallway table, to welcome prospective home buyers … and add that extra touch of colour!

Each home is a challenge … but one that we look forward to each and every time!

Let’s take a tour of our recent staging jobs together, shall we.

Colourful DIY Plant Stand

Hope everyone has been having a great summer! Wanted to do this DIY plant stand project earlier this summer but life/work has been go go go!

Outdated hunter green plant stand

We saved this plant stand from a friend’s curbside a while back. As you can see, it was a 1990’s hunter green, a little dirty, and a little rusty but otherwise in great shape. So we knew we could breathe it back to life again. The notion of “reduce, reuse and recycle” of helping to sustain our environment for the future.  It can be used indoors and/or outdoors so we wanted to add a punch of colour to it.

Our inspirations!
Our inspirations!

This pretty terra cotta/orange planter bowl caught our eye when Target Canada (we so so miss them!) was closing. Then, we came across the cute bright striped citronella candle. So we got inspiration to spray paint it a soft, calming blue from these two.  We knew it would be a fun way to display outdoors through the summer months. We used Krylon Glossy ‘Bahama Sea’ – how fitting for the season!

Pretty blue to give it a facelift!

Now that summer is almost over (sigh!) and ‘back to school’ routine is around the corner, the Fall Mums are out in full force. Annuals out, Fall Mums in.  The deep rich orange/red flower pulls the round planter’s colour together for a finished look.  What do you think?

Colourful Plant Stand to be enjoyed!

Planning another DIY project soon … looking forward to sharing it with you next time!
