We work with several realtors in Stratford and we got called in to stage at a home where the home owner had done a lot in the way of renovations. It was actually the mirror image of a vacant home we had staged in the area with the exception that our client had blown out the back of the home to add a gourmet kitchen, a great room, another bathroom and office. The realtor we work with said the home had great bones, it just needed some "tarting up" as the occupants were men and there was very little in the way of cohesive and modern design elements.
So - here are a few pics of the home. We think it looks great!
This room had a sofa, loveseat, 2 large armchairs, coffee and end table set plus floor lamp. We took out the loveseat, floor lamp and re-positioned the chairs so that we created a cozy conversation area. We also found matching table lamps within the house and re-united them in this room. End result? Space looks larger, more contemporary and very inviting.
Below is the Great Room:
Again, lots of furniture. We had a fireplace which should be the focal point but which was overwhelmed by furniture and competing with the TV for attention. Below is our solution:
By removing extra furniture pieces, shifting the TV into the far left corner and moving the chaise across from the sofa, we create a cohesive and inviting room. In addition, the fireplace is now "the" focal point in the room with the addition of a great tiled mirror and some contemporary accessories. What's not to appreciate here?
Another "Before" shot ...
And here is the "After" ...
Below is a picture of the fab kitchen - we just LOVE it!
