INCREASING THE DESIRABILITY…
Autumn has certainly arrived, together with shorter days and long dark nights, I confess that sometimes I would just like to baton down the hatches until spring emerges! This, not being an available option of course, with several show homes still to deliver this Autumn!
I do however, embrace a series of tactics to cope with the forthcoming winter months, both at home and work! I adopt the ‘Hygge’ philosophy and indulge in layers of luxurious texture, gather piles of logs and cosy up in front of the fire to keep the cold at bay. We are also introducing elements of heavenly glow into our design schemes this Autumn with warm metallic finishes such as old gold and copper tones!
This month we are showcasing an exciting new show home that we have just completed for a developer just outside the Suffolk town of Haverhill. The development is located on the edge of the village and boasts leafy rural views. The properties have been designed with a traditional exterior to retain the vernacular style, while the interior gives way to a contemporary layout with sleek high end finishes. The sitting room features a stunning contemporary wood burner and a backdrop of blackened timber which adds an interesting high end textural element. We worked closely with the architect and proposed a sleek design scheme which employed a bold yellow accent, with clean graphic shapes to compliment the finishes that he has selected. We designed bespoke sofas that we had upholstered in a stunning navy fade through fabric and layered the pattern element with some fabulous Margo Selby cushions! Adding elements of copper, marble and timber to the finishing touches, created a design with depth, whilst maintaining a pared back simplicity.
Although it has been reported that the housing market once again experienced a degree of uncertainty over the Summer months we are delighted to report that three of our Home Stagers show homes have sold in the last month, proving that by increasing the desirability of a property, creating a stunning interior, opens up the chances of extended marketing, certainly increases your chances of a sale!
