This was a gorgeous property Designed to SELL Homes professionally staged in Gibsonia, PA.
It is a spectacular home, listed at 1.3 million dollars. It had been sitting on the market for over a year. The day of my consultation, I walked through the property, taking photographs, notes and measurements of each room. Within a week, I submitted a bid and proposal to stage the listing. The family had already moved out of state, and the house remained mostly furnished.
After poring over all of the photographs, I put together a plan, recommending to completely replace the furniture and decor in the main living room and master bedroom. The living room had a spectacular lake front view and incredible large windows, 20' ceiling height, and floor to ceiling stone fireplace and beautiful wooden beams and trim. The furnishings that were currently in this room were dark and the rug was overly colorful and ornate, detracting from the spectacular architecture.
DTSH Interiors brought in transitional style furniture, introducing a sofa and chair set with clean lines. The new color scheme created was calm and soothing. I also introduced "lake inspired" decor, and replaced the bright colorful rug with a neutral rug. The result was dramatic.
The previous furniture was detracting from the main selling point of the house, the view! The new furnishings and decor that DTSH Interiors, LLC brought in drew the attention to this focal point, the large picture windows, outdoor living space and lake view, while creating a serene and sophisticated living room aesthetic.
In the master bedroom, I also brought in new furniture including a dresser, nightstand and bedding set. The finished look created was in step with the high end residential market. Incredibly, this house that had been sitting on the market for over a year sold within a month after it was professionally staged by Designed to Sell Homes, LLC!
Each room throughout the house was staged and details were added and some furniture was removed. I also recommended re-painting several rooms to create a neutral color palette throughout the spacious property.
Real estate agents who visited the open house, who had seen the property "before and after" staging said it looked like a completely different house!
All in all, it was an exciting project to be a part of, and a complete success. Home staging for the win!
