**Our furniture has been used for Home Staging purposes only**
This past Monday, my team and I staged this beautiful cape cod style home in Baltimore County, MD. This home features 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and 2 half bathrooms. There are gleaming hardwood floors and even a gourmet kitchen perfect for entertaining.
You can view the pictures below. Enjoy!
This week we staged another house! This one required a more contemporary style based on the design of the home. It was listed for sale on Friday so hopefully a contract will be accepted soon 😊. Enjoy!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of staging a beautiful renovation in Baltimore City. This single family home was redesigned to feature a separate family room and living room, new stainless-steel appliances, and even a finished basement.
Please see our pictures below!
I was out with my husband the other day and came across a new tile store. I convinced him to go inside with me for just a minute...I wanted to see the new trends in mosaic tile.
Instead, I was truly blown away by the BEAUTIFUL bathroom designs that were displayed! I told my husband that I now have some ideas for our next home...of course he wasn't too happy about that because it meant more work for him!
But I just had to share these. Feel free to share your thoughts about any of them.
It's clear that the new trend is an elaborate chandelier over a chic porcelain soak-in tub.
This past weekend was spent in North Carolina visiting family. I saw a lot beautiful intricate pieces while I was out and about on the town and I thought I’d share some of the ones that caught my eye.
I love this small accent table. It has a beautiful bronzed slate plate sitting on the wooden glass. The engraved design on the plate is classic and elegant. The set off the table, a round piece of glass was placed on top of the plate. This table is so unique and definitely makes a statement in the room.
Here is a framed picture that I discovered at my Godmother’s house. I absolutely love this work of art. It really says a lot!
Here are two other finds that I loved. This African style dividershade is everything, especially with the sheer shaded lamp in front of it. Of course I love the pop of yellow too! The last picture is of a glass plate mounted on the wall. I really admired the fusion of bold fall colors.
When listing a property, you want to give a potential buyer the most accurate information available about the home. One challenge that many people encounter is determining the difference between a family room, a living room, and a great room. I've noticed that typically Realtor's claim a fireplace is in the family room when it could in fact be located in the living room.
There are very distinct clues that help you figure out which room is which? One main clue is the location of the room in the home.
The family room:
The family room is the place to hang out with friends and family, and watch TV or play games. Generally, family rooms are located right next to the kitchen. Many times, the family room just seems like an extension of the kitchen with a door leading to the patio or backyard.
The living room:
This room is very similar to the family room with one major exception; it’s designed for more formal occasions. The living room is usually located near the front of the house and often functions as a parlor or sitting room.
The great room:
A great room basically takes your family room, living room and maybe a study and combines them into one “great” room. While the family room is located near the kitchen and the living room near the front of the house, the great room is centrally located in the home. It usually has extremely high ceilings and maybe a window or two.
When viewing a home, look for the room clues when you walk around the home. Check out the location of each room, and think about where these three rooms are usually located. If you keep these descriptions in mind, you’ll never confuse a family room with a living room or a great room again!
Soon I will be staging a home that has a separate living room and family room. Stay tuned!
In home staging, I am always looking for the best way to show off the positive features of a space. One primary goal of mine is to make a room seem larger than it truly is. Furniture placement is a huge part of this.
Take the dining room for instance. We are so used to the traditional rectangle style dining room table, but sometimes the dining room may be so small that a rectangular table will completely diminish the area. To eliminate this, I lean towards a round table. I also feel that a round table can give a more classic and elegant look, especially when paired with beautiful upholstered chairs and accented by a charming centerpiece.
Here is a picture of my dining room table.
Here are some other pictures to show the chic look of a round dining room table.
This last picture is my absolute fave, it's so light and elegant.
So what do you all think about a round dining room table, is it something that you could see in your own dining room?
Add a little GREEN to your life!
You can always bring a room to life by adding some trees or plants.
