Staging helps buyers with their own décor visions

We staged this East Hamilton home last summer. It was mainly empty except for the master bedroom, kitchen and family room. But we still had to bring side tables and lamps plus accessories to finish the look. The busy healthcare professional and bachelor didn’t have time for himself, let alone decorating it the way he envisioned. That’s when we came in.

We used our local rental furniture supplier to stage the rest of the home to get it ready for sale. The client was so impressed that we were able to pull off the vision they were wishing for. So impressed that they even took notes to decorate their next home with our inspiration. (No artwork was hung at the request of the client as the walls had been freshly painted.)

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.

Our adventure to IDS2015 Toronto!

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!

We LOVED these unique décor furniture pieces from Quake Furniture – stood out in the crowd for me!

This barrel vanity sink just “wow’d” us. Perfect for a cottage or country home powder room. The salesperson also told me that they’ll repurpose leftover barrel material to create the matching mirror.  Eco-friendly.  Native Trails tradeshow booth
