As a Southwest Florida real estate agent, I’ve been captivated by the beauty of many of our seaside properties. From luxury condos with a waterfront view to affordable single-family homes a short drive to the shore, our area has so many options.
And because the ocean plays such a unique role in Florida, many residents love to style their homes to bring a little of that inside. Now, when you’re staging a home, you’ve probably heard one big tip: stay neutral, neutral, neutral.
However, a small, regional touch to your property can help connect potential buyers with the property. This is as much true if you’re selling your home or even just having guests over. So, let’s take a look at 2 seaside properties and how they accomplished this task in an attractive way.
Okay, I have to be totally honest. This staging in Mission Hills on San Diego Bay is absolutely stunning. When you look through the photos, you’ll see what I mean. The home is an incredible mix of contemporary and classic designs that create a soft, inviting atmosphere that I can’t help but adore. As a 1940s home, the rooms come together with the perfect balance of slightly warm, plenty refreshing, and of course, 100% ocean-inspired.
But let’s talk about the seaside elements since we highlighted that as a factor at the start of this article. When you tour the home, going from room-to-room, you’ll notice that there are small, well-chosen touches of the ocean. At no point does it become too much or does it break from the larger picture. How is this accomplished without going overboard? A splash of blue contrasts a subtle use of clear glass, a bold seashell art piece compliments the use of marble, and driftwood is incorporated for a unique look in a lamp pair. Love it!
Now, let’s turn to another staging that’s a little more modest, but equally attractive. This home, located in Florida, takes advantage of our wonderful views of the shore. And the first thing that I notice about the property is how it highlights that view. With the long, white curtains framing the way to the balcony, this home draws your eye to the ocean.
But I also like the balanced use of whites and blacks, including that modern rug, to keep the look simple. So, how does the property bring in a touch of the ocean, aside from the view? The pillows are an attractive splash of blue that’s just right, with a pattern that’s organic and natural feeling. And I’m in love with the craftsman-style doors throughout
