We’ve been a busy bee home staging in and around the Hamilton area and we couldn’t be happier! Summer is around the corner and homes are going up for sale, left, right and centre. Now is the time to soften up clients’ current décor themes with our staging inventory of soft whites, blues, greens and more. But of course, we always complement with what the clients’ already have and we build from there to create for a strong Open House showing.
We recently staged an older home in the Dundas, Ontario area. It sold quick within a week! Not surprising though, as it is a sought-after area for young families looking to settle in.
Our colour inspiration for this bedroom came from the client’s pretty, quilted bed comforter and her light blue blinds. We brought in the essence of softness to allow potential buyers to picture themselves curled up reading a hard-to-put-down book while gazing through to the garden landscape.
We helped the client declutter her rooms as she is a retiree and on her own. We brought in bright pillows and more new accessories to let her large-sized rooms shine to their potential to be ready for buyers roaming through for Open House. (She recently had her walls freshly painted so wall art was not hung at their request.)

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.

Until next time … we’ll be back with another staging project that we worked on.
Happy Friday everyone! Today we wanted to feature the warm yet functional entryway we designed for our client project series.
As you can see below, the previous homeowners had kept their golf clubs by the doorway. And, it had an outdated brass light fixture and flowery traditional runner welcoming them in.
With little twin girls and two working parents, we wanted to create an entrance that would work for our clients in the mornings as they rush out the door to work and daycare, and when they come home from a tired day.
We wanted to keep this busy family of four’s entryway tidy and organized. So we did just that by personalizing four individual baskets to keep their mitts, hats, scarves and tiny shoes all stored in one spot.
We found this pretty white bench with shutter sliding doors and storage shelves (from Target Canada); it fit perfect with the rest of their main floor’s open-concept décor look and feel. The vintage-inspired pillow was a surprise find from Kitchen Stuff Plus that complemented the solid navy blue sweater-style pillow (also from Target Canada – hey what can we say, we LOVE Target!).
We fell in love (so did our clients) with the wooden rustic accent mirror from Home Outfitters; we knew it would be the right fit to anchor the spot. So our clients can have that one last look before they walk out the door. The geometric modern area rug pattern (again from Target Canada) also fits the tone with the rest of their living room décor. While, the chic light fixture completes the overall entryway with style and sophistication.
Stay tuned for the next reveal in our client project series … their luxurious bathroom!
This past Saturday January 24th, I went to the Interior Design Show 2015 (IDS2015) with a girlfriend. Let me tell you, I was SOOOOO EXCITED to go! Because it was my very first time … and because we were supposed to go last year but there was a huge snow storm that prevented me from doing so. There was so many booths from furniture retailers and distributors to tile and rug suppliers to independent vendors …. so much to see! So I’d like to share with you some of my fave things that captured my attention!
So many home décor ideas … so little time! Nice Saturday afternoon outing was had! : )
