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 [...]

A text from a relieved client This home staging was completed on the lowest budget possible, and much of the furniture was there on a 'beg, steal or borrow' basis from friends and family. See [...]

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, [...]
