Small Showhome in Nottingham – low budget, high impact


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 [...]

Home staging works again – SOLD!


Yet another example of a happy client - Midge firmly believes that the home sold because of the Home Staging process.  We staged the house in December, so it was on the market over the worst time of year - but it still sold at the end of February! 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 [...]

Show Home Styling


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 [...]

One day home staging in Coventry


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 [...]

Empty house makeover in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. (A 6 bedroom house.)


I was asked to do this house makeover by some local developers I have worked with a few times. It was unique, and they only had a tiny budget for furniture, window dressings and accessories - only £6,500 plus my shopping and styling costs. I had twelve days to furnish the entire house. Some of the furniture choices weren't perfect, but cost and availability were the priority. Twelve rooms for £6,500 is almost impossible. (But not quite!)  The Estate Agent [...]

A stunning home makeover in Grantham


This new home makeover was a dream-come-true for my newly-wed clients. It was their first home and they had absolutely no idea what they wanted in it. Luckily, I had a few ideas... and they loved them. Here are some of the comments: "Lynn, you have miles more experience, talent and vision then we will ever have! Thank you so much! We love it! Everything is beautiful and everything we could  have imagined and more. You are a true artist in [...]

A house doctor project for an Australian couple – in Nottingham


House Doctor fame reaches as far as Australia it would seem - this couple live in Australia but own a house in Nottingham. They had seen the House Doctor show many times, and decided to call me when it was time to put it on the market. It had been rented for a few years, but was in good condition. It needed furniture, window dressings and all the usual finishing touches - on a very tight budget.  We first agreed to only [...]

An estate agent used my House Doctor services for her own home! (Flintham, Nottingham.)


This is the third time an estate agent has asked for my House Doctor services to sort their own home. And it SOLD within ten days! This busy lady knew her empty cottage needed some attention before it went on the market. It didn't have much kerb appeal, so potential buyers needed to see what was inside.  She knew that good photographs were essential, and it worked! Here are the photos. In true house doctor style, we kept the budget [...]
