1218 Guernsey Street

This month, we’re proud to present the home at 1218 Guernsey Street, Orlando, FL 32804 as our featured staged listing. This gorgeous custom home was built by Dakota Homes in the desirable College Park neighborhood. The 3,213 square-foot split plan Craftsman home has five spacious bedrooms and four bathrooms, with an additional 1,100+ square-foot covered patio at the back of the house. The classic landscaping and paver driveway give this home exceptional curb appeal.

Staging the custom home at 1218 Guernsey Street was a dream. The neutral color palette throughout the house created the perfect base for colorful accents.

Living Room

In the living room, we brought in plush red chairs and fun animal prints. The pops of red draw your eye all the way through the open floor plan to the lush backyard.

Playful bowls, colorful vases, and shag pillows add a modern, funky vibe. They also complement the organic shapes in the coffee table and contrast with the geometric light fixtures in the kitchen and dining room.

Kitchen

The stunning, oversized island with exotic granite countertops is the star of the show in the kitchen. Comfortable bar stools invite you to have a seat at the island and image yourself hosting a fabulous dinner party.

Master Suite

The master suite at 1218 Guernsey Street features his and her closets and plenty of room for a king-sized bed. The staging in this room is soft and inviting, with a bit of shag to tie into the living room accents.

       

The luxurious master bathroom is a modern oasis. Candles and greenery add a touch of color to the dreamy, creamy color palette. Through the seamless glass shower enclosure, a bottle of wine next to the spacious, free-standing bathtub creates a peaceful vignette.

Home Office

       

No modern home is complete without a home office. Staging one of the five bedrooms as an office showcases the functionality and potential of the space. In this room, our staging team stuck to shades of blue and neutrals with metallic accents.

Guest Room

This guest bedroom features enough space to include a cozy seating area; the plush armchairs provide the perfect place to enjoy the ample natural lighting. Yellow hues and a small floral arrangement really bring this space to life.

Laundry Room

Who doesn’t dream of a tidy laundry room with granite countertops? Our stagers made the right choice by keeping accent pieces to a minimum here. The laundry room at 1218 Guernsey Street feels clean and bright, just the way a laundry room should be.

Patio

At the back of the home, you’ll find a comfortable patio with brick pavers to match the driveway. Multiple seating arrangements show off the patio’s abundant floor space and allow you to picture yourself throwing the perfect summertime BBQ at this outstanding custom home.

At MHM Professional Staging, we love using color to turn an ordinary house into a buyer’s dream home. Each month, our designers share a color that inspires their designs. This month, our trending color is Tupelo Tree (SW 6417). Tupelo Tree is a versatile color that can be made to look 70s chic or totally modern. It all depends on how you use it!

About the Hue

According to color psychology, green calms us. It reminds us of nature. An earthy green like Tupelo Tree has warm undertones that impart a sense of comfort and ease. This makes Tupelo Tree an excellent choice for your decor whether you are staging your home or just looking to update your current color palette.

Tupelo Tree is an avocado green that’s as rich and creamy as the stone fruit itself. Tupelo Tree has a strong yellow cast that evokes the trendy, avocado green kitchens of the 1970s.

“Avocado greens are coming back into style.”
Megan Morris, Founder of MHM Professional Staging

Avocado greens were all the rage in the 70s. Now they are making a comeback—along with other earth tones and muted colors. Tupelo Tree, in particular, is a great compliment to the current hipster aesthetic. White walls, natural wood, and greens of all shades are very “in” right now.

How and When to Use an Avocado Green As an Accent Color

When staging a home, we love to feature a color like Tupelo Tree in accent pieces. We can do this by placing potted plants strategically throughout the house. Succulents have a beautiful range of colors and often come in soothing shades of avocado green. We also like to incorporate avocado greens in furniture and throw pillows. It is especially nice on soft furnishings, where it invites you to sit down and relax.

On the Walls

You can paint your walls in a hue like Tupelo Tree, but we recommend using it sparingly. Avocado greens have a tendency to look dated when used all over. Tupelo Tree works well as an accent wall or painted in a small powder room. We absolutely love the look of an avocado green backsplash.

On Your Front Door

Green doors are friendly and welcoming. A front door in Tupelo Tree will put your guests at ease as they step over the threshold and into your home. When using avocado green on your front door, be sure to keep the main house color neutral. Otherwise, you risk getting a “fun house” effect with too many competing colors.

Coordinating Colors

As we mentioned earlier, Tupelo Tree is a versatile color that can inspire sentimentalism for the 70s or make a home look modern and hip. The coordinating colors you choose can make all the difference.

Tone It Down with Neutrals

Many greens are considered neutrals. Tupelo Tree is one of those greens. It goes well with other warm neutrals, such as beige and ivory. Sherwin-Williams recommends complementing Tupelo Tree with Restoration Ivory (SW 6413) or Rice Paddy (SW 6414).

Make It Modern

Unless you’re aiming for a vintage look, avoid the retro combinations of avocado green with burnt orange or harvest gold. It may have been popular in the 70s, but today it can make a home look outdated. Decor choices that borrow from another era can scare buyers into thinking that a house needs work. Modern aesthetics, on the other hand, make a house appear turnkey.

Stick with clean, fresh color combinations when staging your home. Easy ways to modernize avocado green include pairing it with a bright white, cool gray, or other muted earth tones.

Go Bold

If you’re feeling bold, consider pairing Tupelo Tree with a deep blue hue like Endless Sea (SW 9150). We don’t recommend this color combination for a house that’s for sale. However, it is a bold and daring choice to liven up your forever home!

You may know that one of Orlando’s many claims to fame is being the central location of the show Zombie House Flipping (now airing season 3 on the FYI channel!). But did you know that our MHM Professional Staging crew is regularly featured on the show? When the Zombie team is ready to bring a renovated house to the market, they call in our staging professionals to turn that house into a home. The Zombie crew knows what any good realtor will tell you: staging a home is the best way to sell that home—fast.

In the first episode of season two, the Zombie House flippers tackle a mid-century modern home in Winter Park, FL. Most of the Zombie team couldn’t see the potential of the house at first, but the team’s project manager, Justin, saw a diamond in the ruff. The episode also features a look at the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® Visualizer (which you can use to find our June color of the month, Oceanside!).

About the Zombie House

Mid-century modern is a style of design that was popular from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s. It was influenced by the Bauhaus movement and is characterized by sleek lines, organic and geometric forms, minimal ornamentation, and the juxtaposition of contrasting materials. The Zombie house featured in season two episode one is a shining example of this style of architecture. We’re so glad that Justin saw the potential in this house. It’s one of our favorite staging designs!

Staging the Zombie House

Naturally, a home that is representative of a very specific style calls for very specific furnishings. Our team brought in classic mid-century modern furniture and accents that honored the overall style of the home. The console table in the entryway is one of our favorite pieces.

The organic shape of the table legs and the combination of materials (wood, glass, ceramic) are characteristic of the mid-century modern style. Staging this console table in the entryway carried the character of the home from the outside in.

In the Living Room

The living room setup also features a charming table as a focal point. Notice the straight, peg legs and oval shape of the coffee table. These characteristics are reminiscent of the Space Age flair that mid-century modern design acquired in the late 1950s and 1960s. Its low profile helps to draw your eye down from the high, clerestory windows. The tall pastel vases strategically placed below the standard windows also help to create movement around the room.

In the Kitchen

In the kitchen, a black bowl full of bright, yellow lemons adds a striking contrast to the black and white cabinets. It also plays off of the yellow brass hardware and blondewood accents. Our team of stagers layered in additional accent pieces in the same color family. The light wood utensils and glass jars of pasta not only look great, but they also make the kitchen feel homey. That cozy feeling is what helps potential buyers envision themselves in the space.

On the Patio

Outside on the covered patio, the MHM Professional Staging team placed a bistro table and chairs. The Zombie crew loved the idea of creating a breakfast area outside. Bringing the inside outdoors is one of the many benefits of living in the sunshine state.

In the Home Office

Staging the spare bedroom as an office was a creative way to show buyers the potential of the space. Our team made the room look hip while still retaining the mid-century modern vibe.

In the Master Suite

Inside the master suite, the finishes and beautiful tiles commanded attention. All this room needed were a few small details to pull it all together. The artwork with flecks of gold connected to the gold hardware and a neutral striped towel added softness without distracting from the rest of the space.

Watch Us on Zombie House Flipping

We loved staging this mid-century modern zombie for the Zombie House Flipping crew. Be sure to watch season two episode one for the full story on how this house transformed from a total zombie to a dream home. Sign in to your TV Provider to watch Zombie House Flipping online.

At MHM Professional Staging, we love using color to turn an ordinary house into a buyer’s dream home. Each month, our designers share a color that inspires their staging designs. This month, our trending color is Oceanside (SW 6496). Oceanside is a deep teal color that adds complexity and drama to any space.

About the Hue

Oceanside, by Sherwin Williams

It’s no surprise that Oceanside was the Sherwin Williams Color of the Year for 2018. The shade strikes a balance between traditional and modern, so it’s not likely to go out of fashion any time soon. A rich blue-green color, Oceanside is highly versatile and complements many variations of metallic finishes. It pairs nicely with both warm and cool tones, and it fits into a wide range of styles.

Colors in the blue spectrum evoke feelings of reliability, peace, and wisdom, while colors in the green spectrum are gender neutral and tend to be attractive and calming to most people. As a combination of blue and green, Oceanside is both intellectual and welcoming.

How and When to Use a Dark Teal Color

Oceanside on a velvet couch is as luxurious as it is inviting.

As an Accent Color

A dark teal such as Oceanside can dramatically change a room. However, the deep hue can also be difficult to paint over. If you plan to sell your home in the near future, consider using dark teal as an accent color. It looks stunning in velvet and satin alike; selecting soft furnishings, pillows, and curtains in a color like Oceanside will add depth and dimension to a room.

On Your Walls

Tropical wallpaper turns a dark teal room into a hip, urban jungle.

Cover your walls in dark teal for an ultra-luxe look. This bold application will add instant luxury and make a room feel cozy. Before you decide to paint every wall, consider the space’s light sources throughout the day. A room with abundant natural light during the daytime can make Oceanside look like a jewel tone, but in the evening, that same room can become dark and closed-in without sufficient lighting. Also consider the size of the room you’re painting. Dark paint colors can make a room feel smaller. Dark teal walls provide a stunning backdrop for bright accents and artwork. Although applying the color to an entire room will produce the most dramatic effect, you can instead paint just one wall or piece of furniture for a pop of color.

Note: If you’re planning to sell your home soon, stick with neutral colors for your walls. They help highlight a home’s best features and allow home buyers to envision their own furniture and décor in the space. On the other hand, if you are in your forever home and you are ready to make a dramatic change, then painting with a rich color like Oceanside is a great option.

Paired with Metals

Dark teal works well with all types of metal. It cools down the warm tones in brass and warms up the cool tones in silver. It can even be paired with reflective surfaces such as mirrors or crystal to bring glamour to a room. Matte black finishes will nearly disappear against a dark color like Oceanside; this combination can add a bit of mystique to a kitchen or bathroom.

Lower cabinets in dark teal combined with gold finishes equals total sophistication.

Paired with Prints

“I love dark teal mixed with pops of brighter colors and prints,” says MHM Designer Cory Léger. Prints stand out against dark walls, which will recede into the background. Installing patterned wallpaper next to a dark teal wall is a great way to highlight architectural features. It also adds movement and visual interest to an otherwise heavy color. For a fun and friendly look, consider mixing in floral or tropical prints. For a more stately appearance, go for classic patterns such as diamonds or stripes.

Coordinating Colors

Mixing dark teal walls with a cream colored couch conveys a subtle elegance.

A rich blend of blue and green, Oceanside is a color chameleon. The shade’s persona changes depending on which colors you pair it with.

Make it Pop with Bold Colors

Extra White (SW 7006) and Limón Fresco (SW 9030) make Oceanside pop. So do other bold, graphic colors such as Exuberant Pink (SW 6840).

Add Elegance with Lighter Colors

When placed next to a pastel like Blue Horizon (SW 6497) or the creamy Dover White (SW 6385), Oceanside acquires an antiqued elegance.

Tone It Down with a Monochromatic Look

For a calming monochromatic look, pair dark teal with other shades of blue. Blues such as In the Navy (SW 9178) and Adrift (SW 7608) combine with Oceanside to create a place of pure tranquility.

Having a petite sized bedroom is a fabulous opportunity to show off just how inventive and innovative with design one can get. Actually, a small bedroom is charming, attractive, and quaint – a special retreat from chaotic life. With that, there is no room or extra space for additional clutter, the room needs to have calculated and deliberate design choices that are not only picturesque but purposeful. Follow our guide to opening up a small space into a luxurious large master bedroom. 

Lighting

For lighting options elect for accent lights that are sprinkled around the space instead of one large overhead light. The numerous lights with lure the eye around the room crafting depth and shadow, where a single light will immerse the room in one standardized glow. 

Drapery

When hanging drapery – the higher the better. Hanging drapery panels as high and wide as possible gives the illusion of higher ceilings and larger windows. Using light colored drapery options is always a plus for a bright lift to the windows.

Mirrors

Use the optical illusions of mirrors to your advantage. Arranging mirrors on the walls adds architectural curiosity while adding light brightness to the space. It works exceptionally well if it reflects a window or large opening into the room to offer the illusion of a large area. 

Neutral

An effortless and quick way to make a small space look bigger is filling it with bright whites and neutrals. Blend and mix the neutrals up with textured pillows and throws that add depth and detail to the room. 

Storage

Furniture pieces with understated drawers is a go to for a small space. That way so everything has a place already with useful and needed furniture pieces. Beds with storage underneath or built in storage is great for items for extra bedding, clothing, and books are easy but does not take up valuable floor space.

To sell your home faster and for top dollar in today’s market, home staging is one of the best marketing strategies. It puts your home in its best possible light and ensures that it has a strong first impression on a wide range of buyers.

It is possible to stage your own home, but there are a few things to consider before committing to that decision. You may be hindering your home’s chances on the market rather than helping them.

Here are some signs you would be better offer hiring a professional home stager to do the work.

Signs You Need a Home Stager You’re struggling to emotionally detach from your home

It’s difficult to look at the home you’ve lived in for years without having all of your memories and personal feelings attached to it. The thing is, when a home goes on the market, it’s like any other product. It’s important for it to appeal to a wide range of buyers. When we’re emotionally attached to our homes, it’s hard to see past what we love about it and look at it with a fresh, objective eye.

A home stager bridges that gap. We look at home from the outside perspective of a buyer so we can see things as they will see it. We can then suggest the most effective changes that will put your home in its best light possible so it’s ready to make a great first impression when it hits the market.

You don’t have a lot of extra time

Staging a home takes a lot of time and energy. It includes researching the market, learning about your target buyer, assessing your home, making necessary repairs, decluttering, space planning, and adding the finishing touches. If you are already busy with work, kids, and other commitments, it may be hard to find time to do all that needs to be done to get the most out of the staging process.

A professional home stager will relieve that burden so you can put all of your focus on the other important things in your life. We do all the research, assess your home, and then can carry out all of the tasks needed to make your home ready for the market. It’s one less thing for you to worry about.

You aren’t sure what the ‘psychology of a home buyer’ is

Home staging is all about appealing to the psychology of a home buyer. If you aren’t sure what that is (or haven’t even heard of it), then you’re not going to get the best results from your staging efforts. As professional home stagers, we have spent years researching and analyzing the buyer’s experience when they are house hunting. We know how to tap into their emotions and encourage them to feel at home when they tour a listing. It informs all of our decisions from the colors we pick to the way we arrange the furniture, as well as every small detail after that.

You don’t know anything about your target buyers or the market

The real estate market is constantly changing, and it’s different in every neighborhood. Knowing the real estate market in your area is key to staging your home effectively so that it appeals most to the buyers that will be considering it. The more you know about your target buyers, the more you can tailor your home to speak to them and evoke an emotional response.

You don’t know how to work with vignettes, color schemes or furniture arrangement

A number of elements come together to make a home appealing to buyers. The right staging can make a home feel larger, inviting, and highlight all its best attributes. Things like furniture arrangement, color schemes, vignettes, and other techniques are part of the staging process. If you don’t have a strong understanding of these techniques and how to use them effectively based on a home’s individual needs, then it’s best to leave it in the hands of a home stager to get the best possible results.

There are a lot of details that go into successfully staging a home for sale. Bedrooms, especially the master bedroom, hold a lot of weight in a buyer’s analysis of a home. This is a room where it is especially important to make them feel at home.

The bed is the focal point of a bedroom, so the bedding is crucial to making it look great. A messy bed is an immediate turn-off to buyers and sends the wrong message. To make your bedroom look clean and relaxing, follow these tips on bedding for home staging.

Bedding Tips for Home Staging You can never go wrong with white

White linens are the most classic choice for bedding. You can pick up white bedding at a variety of stores without spending a lot. There’s a good reason you always see white bedding in hotels: it’s timeless, chic, and easy on the eyes. It makes the room feel relaxing and luxurious without being too distracting. In home staging, hotel rooms are a great source of inspiration because most buyers love the feeling they get in a beautiful, clean hotel room.

Keep it simple

Simple is key with home staging. When there is too much going on in terms of color and pattern, it becomes distracting to the eye, especially in MLS photos. A clean, streamlined look is best. White linens are best with just a few colorful accents, such as accent pillows and a throw. If you do have a patterned comforter, fold it at the base of the bed for a nice pop of contrast.

Add layers

A few layers of pillows always make a bed feel more luxurious and welcoming. You can also add a throw or comforter at the base of the bed for even more style. Having a bed that looks elegant, cozy, and inviting will spark buyers’ imaginations and make them feel that much more at home in the space.

Press your linens

A nice extra step when staging your bedding is to iron the linens, including the pillowcases. In hotels, the bedding is always crisp and wrinkle-free. This makes the room look cleaner and that much more sophisticated. Though it will take some effort, it goes a long way in the presentation of a bedroom.
