Real Estate Staging services from Luxe Home Philadelphia begin with a consult with a client to understand their concept and marketing objectives. Our client at the Touraine was determined to refurbish each unit using sustainable, environmentally friendly materials. Our client explained the purpose of her project is, "to create a look and feel that pays homage to the architectural integrity of the old buildings." Her first real estate staging was a 986-square-foot one bedroom unit on the east side of the building.
We started with a "blank slate" of beautifully installed brand new bamboo floors and fresh walls of Eco friendly paint. After a brief conversation it was clear for this real estate staging that the furniture needed to feel natural in material, neutral in color, and be simple in texture. We wanted to create a sophisticated yet "homey" feel.
Living Room After
The concept from the living room grew from the first piece selected, the wonderfully crafted solid walnut screen from Lazy Susan USA. Next, we selected an incredibly comfortable Keaton Sofa with fabulous polished silver nail-heads. Then came two Wyatt occasional chairs, a unique tumbled silver glass top accent table and a solid wood coffee table from Henredon Furniture. To complete the look we placed a soft, cream, shaggy rug in the center of the room, and hung a fun, large botanical flower on the wall.
It was important to also show the different functions of the large living space. We chose to divide the space into a comfortable sitting area for residents and possibly guests. Another area within the same space was created to accommodate an open glass desk and a sophisticated tailored chair from Vanguard Furniture. A large round mirror was hung above the desk, directly across from two large windows. The mirror not only functions as a wonderful decoration for the empty wall, but also reflects an incrediabl1e amount of light into the space.
Open Glass Desk
In between the Living Room and the bright yellow kitchen was a nice opportunity for a simple dining table with four comfortable, yet "good looking" dining chairs, upholstered in a classic beige fabric. The 42" glass top table was topped with an elegant botanical garden of blood orange roses.

On the other side of the unit awaited an empty bedroom...
This space was screaming for a gorgeous luxurious bed! We chose the Queen Cooper Bed in a creamy knit fabric with wonderful polished nickel nail-heads from Bernhardt Interiors. Flanking the bed were two identical traditional Arthur Tables with large, matte silver lamps and incredibly stitched grey/taupe linen lamp shades from Arteriors Home.

As a side note, it's always important to add a few "real life" finishing touches for a real estate stageing, such as this recent newspaper and novel by the bed!
To accent the space, I added a comfy chair from Hickory Chair and a large scaled flower print from Natural Curiosities.

To finish this real estate staging we added clean, white accessories to the wonderfully restored bathroom. Some of these items included crisp white towels, a shower curtain, bath mats, and candles.
