ADDING A SMILE TO VANCOUVER HOME STAGING
TRY A LITTLE WHIMSY
Adding a smile to Vancouver Home Staging – try a little whimsy! When styling a property for sale, I don’t like to take myself too seriously. Yes, it’s important to follow design elements and principles to achieve a well laid out, presentable home for sale. However, adding a little bit of fun or whimsy makes properties memorable – in a good way!
I was inspired by a recent trip to the Las Vegas Furniture Market. It seems I’m not alone, as I found many examples of items and accessories that were just a little bit quirky and fun. Here are a few of my findings…
Ok, I might not do a whole feature wall of pigs’ noses, but a snout tucked here or there? Why not? Oh, and these are gilded pigs’ snouts – that adds a little bit of class, no?
We all know that it’s a good idea to send Fido to a friend’s house when showing your property, but how about a doggie replica, complete with leopard doggie bed? If you live in a dog friendly neighbourhood, as I do, these might send just the message that dogs are welcome, with many off leash trails nearby.
Never since the Godfather movie have horse heads been so popular. We saw many examples, in all different materials, including wood, metal, and ceramic. Equine heads look great in a den, office of living room. I’ll be trotting off to the store to stock up on these items!
When looking at several homes in one day, home buyers need a reprieve from the same old, same old. We like to shake things up with a memorable item that makes home buyers smile and remember your property for sale.
