As a boutique home staging company, we take the time to pay attention to the details of each of our projects. As we design each stage from scratch, it allows us to draw some of our inspiration directly from the homes we stage. Therefore, embracing a home’s unique features is something you can expect from our work. This way your stage will look truly unique because our designs are created specifically for your homes. An example of how we do this is our recent stage in the Roosevelt neighborhood.
About the home
Our recent stage in Roosevelt was a charming craftsman home built in 1920. What made this home unique was its black trimming around the house. as most homes have a lighter color trimming. Our designer, Dalana, decided to take this feature of the house and make it central to her design. She decided to do something unexpected with her design to make sure this home stood out online from other similar houses. In order to make the black trim pop, she used a lot of blues in her color palette and brought in modern furniture.
In this home even the fireplace surround and mantel were painted black. Our solution was to lighten things up by using a light sofa and area rug. We then added off-white and teal accessories throughout the room. This created a beautiful contrast that made the fireplace stand out but in a balanced fashion.
For the dining room, we brought in blue dining chairs to add a hip and modern feel to the 1920s home. We layered two area rugs with a black and white cowhide on top to tie in with the black trimming. This dining room made the older home really appeal to younger buyers.
Next, we utilized this corner and created a cozy seating nook perfect for reading. The different shades of blue went well with the black without competing against it. The blues added touches of color and provided a very soothing atmosphere.
For the kitchen, we used some lighter blue props to keep the space looking as bright as possible. We brought in black metal chairs to tie in with the black trimming.
To keep our design cohesive, we brought blue and black to the outside of the home in this outdoor set up. We used a small round black table paired with blue chairs. Just add a bottle of wine for a romantic summer evening on the porch.
We kept the master bedroom black and white by layering textures and mixing different patterns. This created a sophisticated yet edgy minimalist look that is right on trend.
We brought in lighter furniture with blue accessories to keep this room look bright and spacious.
We brought in a textured white bedding along with blue and green accent pieces to give this bedroom a playful personality.
The importance of embracing a home’s unique features
Even though this was a craftsman home, we staged it in a modern fashion. This made the home look very hip even though it was an older house. Embracing a home’s unique features is crucial for staging. The home sold for over 20% more than the asking price. This stage is just one example that shows the huge benefits of taking the time to hire a stager that makes the effort to create a unique design for your home.
