This beautiful penthouse apartment had previously been rented out. It was sparsely furnished and rather stark which meant that it was not very welcoming. The staging process involved freshening up the paintwork, effecting some minor repairs and introducing interest through the use of some feature walls. The same colour palette was used throughout to give a sense of flow and a homely feel was created by using accessories. Click on the individual pictures for a larger image. It sold, subject to contract, on the first viewing for the full asking price. (After photos courtesy of Paul Adams, Penarlag Video.)
This 80’s through lounge/ dining room represented good space but needed some serious updating. It had a plaster dado rail plus ceiling mouldings with wallpaper insert and two types of wallpaper above and below the dado. There was a patterned carpet and dark woodwork. The mouldings and wallpaper were were stripped and the walls and ceilings were replastered. The room was decorated in a warm shade of off white with a slightly shade used on the woodwork. The carpet was replaced with a plain stone colour. Interest was added through a feature wall of wallpaper and curtains and accessories which can easily be changed.
This delightful charachter cottage needed some TLC after being rented out. In order to prepare it sale we cleared the property of rubbish and carpets, repairs were carried out including replacement of failed double glazing units, the property was decorated throughout, new flooring and blinds fitted, it was cleaned and then dressed. It has now returned to the lovely home it was.
This 1980’s semi detached property had been sadly neglected. Structurally it was sound but need some TLC. The project involved a complete modernisation including plastering of ceilings, new bathroom and kitchen, stripping of wallpaper, new patio and complete redecoration. The major element was removing a wall dividing the kitchen and dining rooms to create a more open plan space and allow more light in to the living space.
Lounge Redesign – West Kirby
The clients contacted me because they weren’t making use of their lounge and wanted a space that they could use as a family – for watching TV, reading or listening to music. Key factors were to replace the existing fireplace and reconfigure the layout to give a view out to the rear garden. The clients wanted someone to project manage the redesign taking responsibility for obtaining quotes and arranging for work to be carried out. They were very much engaged in the process, putting forward ideas for products and colours. The colour palette was sophisticated and cosy with inspiration taken from the rug chosen by the clients.
Victorian Property Family Home Staging
This detached property in beautiful Llandudno North Wales had been converted into two flats by a previous owner. The client had restored it to a lovely family home. I was immediately struck by the sense of light and space throughout. The client had painted chimney breasts in feature colours, one of which I also used in the Master bedroom. I used those colours as the basis for the colour scheme. The style is contemporary yet homely thus perfect for a family. Whilst each room is individual the colour and style were used to give coherence to the overall look and feel of the property.
