Comment by DesignStaging: Here’s that opportunity to create that great “impression” and entice the buyer to want to see more! Thanks Imogen for sharing.

Your entrance hall is the first opportunity buyers will have of seeing inside your house (after their first impressions of the outside) so it’s important to stage it right. The hallway needs to set the tone for the rest of the house in terms of colour, style and feeling. If buyers love your hallway they will want to continue onto the other rooms.  Here are a couple of tips:

  • Daily life needs to be stored away. No evidence of keys, shoes, schoolbags, hats, post, homework or family photos
  • If your hallway is your main entrance then it probably needs a good clean and a coat of paint. Hallways usually take a lot of wear and tear
  • The paint colour that you choose should blend in with the rest of the house and be light yet welcoming. A warm neutral such as Dulux Hogbristle, quarter or half strength is perfect

  • Hallways…

the bedroom…

I am proud to say that I have grown to appreciate the sanctuary of my bedroom. Merriam-Webster defines a bedroom (noun) as a room furnished with a bed and intended primarily for sleeping. (*I know what you’re thinking..lol)  With that in mind, I have removed the television and added low lighting, a water fountain, and soothing music to achieve the total relaxation intended.

Today, we have a variety of styles to choose from, from tradition to bohemian, contemporary to avant-garde…  you can define your design style through the use of color, textures, linens, accessories, etc. Currently, my taste involves a more sterile environment – white linen, neutral accessories, and light & airy window treatments. This definitely helps with the laundry – no more sorting and having multiple loads. What is your style?

Check out some of my favorite styles for the bedroom on pinterest… enjoy and don’t forget to turn off the lights when you’re finished! 🙂

Comments from DesignStaging:  Those who know me well knows that orange is a favorite, from my orange raincoat to the orange color walls in a previous home… such a burst of color!

Comments by DesignStaging: We have so many renovated warehouses converted into lofts, these photos inspire me…from lighting to those fabulous floors.

Sanctuary Decor

How is it Thursday already?!?! I feel like yesterday was Sunday and I was pulling together my posts for the week. Whoops! Sorry about the gap in posts this week, but here’s something to spruce up the end of your day today…

And yes, I desperately want this first kitchen. The lights are flipping amazing. Ah-maze-ing.

Ciao Bella!

Amid all this heat, I can’t help but think about anything refreshing to conjure a brain freeze. Ice, snow, marble slabs… anything to take the edge off. All white spaces seem to do the trick, as well as feed my inner design addict. A neutral, monochromatic room has the potential of being boring and dated, but the spaces below are fresh, calm and most importantly, inspired.

The use of a warm off white (white with yellow or red undertones) and textured elements, such as white-washed bricks coupled with black furniture pieces, not only makes the space warm and inviting, but it also gives the space personality.

A cool white (pure white or white with blue undertones) and lots of natural light make spaces feel airy. You can ground the space with deep earthy colors like the reds and purples seen in this living room.

The cool white walls, doors and floors make…

Sequins and Ponies

I’m inspired every morning waking up to Paddington and Chloe enjoying the window ledges in my loft. Stalking the pigeons who gather on the outer ledges, or lounging lazily — they are always so happy for a light-filled perch against the glass. While I don’t fit quite so comfortably on the window ledges, I often wish for a modern window seat to lounge with a good book or to simply admire the sunshine.

Beautiful decor, thanks ‘A Decorator’s Notebook’

A Decorator's Notebook

Welcome to part 3 of the Home Tour of my talented South African friend’s  lovely home…this post focuses on the master bathroom, family bathrooms , family bedrooms and the Media or Family room which are all situated on the second floor of the home.

Just off the glamorous master bedroom is an equally decadent master bathroom, complete with free-standing tub and his and hers basins…these magnificent mirrors are from France.

A view of the tub and a vignette of antique glass orbs and jars.

I adore art in the bathroom, and something bold like this magnificent piece above the toilet and bidet, is perfect for the space-once again , there are no curtains, but shutters, which filter the wonderful light.

Directly off the master bedroom landing is the media room ,where the family spend time  on the computer. and watching TV or playing TV games. It is a comfortable room…
