April 2016 Featured Before & After

This is from the same house in the last post.  Before the red accent paint and draperies were a little jarring for buyers.  The custom wallpaper mural was too personal.  And the traditional rug with the traditional furniture was a little overwhelming for a more contemporary buyer.

The mural was removed, the red got painted neutral, the red draperies removed and the traditional rug replaced with a more contemporary one. With this room right inside the front door, this is a much better first impression!
And a few more after pictures of the rest of the house:

December 2015 Featured Before & After

We did a consultation for this home that had been on the market for a very long time.  To help the home appeal to the less traditional buyer, we had them paint the walls a warm grey which showed off the white trim and mantle. Instead of differentiating the traditional inset details, we had them paint the whole wall the same color.  We also eliminated the extra rug and some art and accessories to show off the beautiful wood floor and give a simplified feeling.  It sold right away!

October 2015 Featured Before & After

This bathroom is the from the same home as the bedroom in the last post.  Before, the colors were very uniform and the accent blue tile seemed out of place.  By using a richer wall color, we created a contrast with the tile and woodwork to show it off.  Then adding blue art and accessories, we made the accent tile an integral part of the space.
