  Did you make your list?  Did you check it twice? Even if your home is for sale during the Holiday season or if you’re planning on selling your home after the New Year, inevitably there will be a list of items for you to begin doing.  Market preparation is key when putting your home up for sale.   Here are some starting points of where to begin:  ·       Invest in landscaping where it can be seen first. A well manicured lawn, neatly clipped shrubbery and cleanly swept walks all create a good first impression. ·        Cut back over-grown shrubbery that looks scraggly or keeps light out of the house, put down fresh mulch or pine straw. ·        Paint your house if necessary. This can do more for sales appeal than any other factor ·       In winter, walks must be free of snow and ice (li...

Where is Hoover? Hoover is located along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in north central Alabama. Since the mid-1930’s, this widely dotted residential area outside Birmingham was commonly referred to as the “Hoover Community,” so named for William H. Hoover who was the owner of a local insurance company.  However; it wasn’t until 1967 that the city was officially incorporated.  Just 12 miles from the Birmingham International Airport, the city encompasses an area of approximately 50 square miles in both Jefferson and Shelby counties.  With a population of over 82,000, Hoover is the sixth largest city in Alabama and has a nationally-recognized, award-winning school system.  The median household income of this thriving business community is estimated to be about $75,000.

  From a staging perspective – it isn’t about the client at all . . .it’s all about the buyer and the buyer demographics.  It’s about the type of buyer who will be viewing your home and its potential for their lifestyle.  It’s about what your home says to your buyers. Sometimes sellers don’t understand the reason why a room is laid out the way it is – it’s different from the way they have previously used it or from the way they think it should be.  Staging is all about having the architectural features of the home acknowledged in such a way that the buyer can envision themselves being there, devoid of the seller’s personality.  It’s about letting those architectural elements shine and stand out, while the functionality of the room is evident. From a buyer’s perspective, it’s so much eas...

Choosing the right home stager is crucial if you have decided to have your home professionally staged.  In a field that is continuously growing, but unregulated, consumers largely rely upon the stager’s advertising or website to promote accurate and informative information to help them decide.  Here are the top 5 mistakes homeowners can make when selecting a stager and what you can do to avoid them:   1.       Assuming that all stagers are created equal.  The fact is, they are not. Differing levels of training,  expertise, services, and professionalism separate home stagers, and their business practices.  Look for a home staging company that offers different levels of service to accommodate their clients and their needs and look for one that understands the real estate market, buyer dem...

  Our most recent client project takes one house and gives it 3 different spins. We've taken our cues from the client to create one option that provides a tonal, monochromatic theme with texture and style to give our client a look that is sophisticated and appeals to both male and female design tastes, in our Modern Equestrian Club mood board. Our second option takes our client's preference for worldly style and color to create a global and colorful option using updated elements to create a modern Global Chic design. Our last option includes our client's preference for bold rich color using artwork as the design inspiration to incorporate personal art into the Red Confetti design theme. Three very different distinct options within one home. The options include the designs to be incorpor...

Sometimes we are asked to accomplish what may seem to be the impossible.  A recent client project involved providing form, function and a placed for fun in only 400 sq. ft for a complete living space.  The client provided us with a copy of the floor plan and photos. The before photos show an area mainly overtaken by a king size bed and a large couch with only room for 3.  From that, we provided a room layout and formulated a design aesthetic that would be inviting.  Since the client works in a clinical white box setting, color and texture was needed to break up this small white box feeling and create a living space, entertaining space, sleep space, work space and a reading space -  We never even saw the actual space until the day of installation.     Before:  Small and Uninviting and No...
