Small Showhome in Nottingham – low budget, high impact

2017-02-01T19:34:42+00:00

My brief for this Showhome in Nottingham was to produce the biggest impact on the smallest budget. As usual! With careful planning and design, considering the needs of any potential buyers, within two weeks of my initial consultation, this was the result. The developer was delighted - and I quote - "Looking great, I have to say!  You have done a great job.  The flat has a lovely feel, I am delighted, and it's such a pleasure to work with someone who delivers [...]

The fastest home staging ever!

2016-03-05T19:52:03+00:00

This home staging project was completed at top speed - before a potential buyer came back for their second visit!  My Consultation was arranged for a Thursday afternoon, and during the session, I discovered that a potential buyer had already seen the house, and had a second viewing booked for the following week - but she had commented on several occasions that the house was dark.  Well, that sounded like a challenge to me - especially as I agreed with her.  So, [...]

Show Home Styling

2016-03-05T22:15:04+00:00

Show Home styling is all about presenting the space to appeal to all potential buyers - on the lowest budget possible.  I was asked which of the three upper level apartments I would choose to style as the show home, and whilst other designers chose the largest, most straightforward apartment, I went for the most awkward - and got the job!             This was my client's response to the show home styling: See what the apartment [...]

Darley Abbey Makeover

2016-03-15T18:42:46+00:00

I was so lucky with the weather during this makeover in Darley Abbey, Derby. The sun shone on the beautiful garden every time I needed inspiration for the house! The property is located in a lovely peaceful area, and the garden is stunning - designed and developed by the homeowner, who is an arboriculturalist, (tree specialist), so you can imagine the variety of trees and plants on show all year round. The décor in the house itself was a little tired, but after the makeover of course it is [...]

One day home staging in Coventry

2014-07-24T14:46:40+00:00

Just one day of shopping and one day of home staging made a huge difference to the appeal of this home. My client borrowed some basic furniture from friends, and I took everything else with me. The estate agents were amazed, and increased the asking price of the house immediately!  My client said: "WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love it, the place looks amazing. You have really bought out the best in the place and the colour schemes are gorgeous.  You were right about [...]

This one-day home staging project was initiated by an Estate Agent - John German in Staffordshire.

‘I need you to stage my home again please!’

2013-11-08T13:32:47+00:00

"Stage my home again please!" A previous client sent me this message - I had already helped her to sell her house within days during the previous year, and now she was on the move again. Knowing how beneficial the service had been, she had no doubts about calling me for a second time. (There's a link to her first house at the end of this page.) This time, she had learnt from her previous mistakes (mainly involving mixing the wrong colours together) [...]

Everything is beautiful and everything we could  have imagined and more. You are a true artist in [...]
