The Colorful Bee Interiors, which has been in business since 2001, is an award-winning company - we were named one of the "Best of Long Island 2008 " companies by the readers of the Long Island Press. We are a full service design consulting, decorative painting and home staging company. Our design projects have been featured several times on Houzz.com, HGTV.com and on many design blogs thoughout the US and the UK. We have been featured many times in Newsday and we have participated in several Designer Showhouses on Long Island.
With our real estate staging division - Beautiful Staged Homes by Linda, we do just that - we stage homes that become beautiful. What sets us apart from other home staging companies is our artistic talent and our ability to transform tired and dated houses that are not selling into saleable homes that are updated, inviting and beautiful - quickly, on budget and without expensive remodeling.
Recent home staging successes: An investor property we staged in Bohemia NY sold in 1 day after the Open House for over list; a vacant Dix Hills NY home that was on the market for over a year, sold in 2 weeks after we furnished and staged it; a vacant Long Beach NY condo sold 4 days after the Open House after languishing on the market for years; an estate home in Lynbrook NY that we staged for 3 siblings who lived out of state, sold for $20K over list - in 2 weeks.

With the Colorful Bee Interiors, we can create murals, Venetian Plaster and many other beautiful finishes. With our other division, Beautiful Staged Homes by Linda, we can help sell your clients' homes - quickly and for more money. Whether you are selling a moderately priced home or a grand estate, our company can make a critical difference in how quickly the home will sell...and the amount of profit you'll make.
For vacant or investor properties, we have our own beautiful inventory - furnishings and accessories that have proven to be exactly what buyers are looking for in today's market. Our monthly rental fees are far less expensive than rental company prices...and our furnishings don't resemble cookie cutter rental looks! We also have 2 month minimum rentals instead of the longer terms rental companies demand.
We can also quickly give the kitchen and bathrooms a facelift with our signature cabinetry finishes and decorative concrete products over tired and dated formica countertops and dated tiled backsplashes. This saves time and money - and the result looks like expensive limestone. For multi million dollar homes, let us create a grand entry with the use of Venetian Plaster or another high end decorative technique. We also have access to beautiful antiques and chandeliers and other home furnishings that will really give a prospective buyer a picture of how beautiful their life will be if they purchase this home.
