Best of the Best Home Interiors Recipient- August 2021

Wow! What an amazing honor to be named “Best of the Best Home Interiors”. This honor is rewarded to the top staging designs of the month and is presented by Home Staging Resources and recognizes the work of stagers nationwide.

Christy McGriff of Home Styling Studio in Gray, Tenn., staged a tri-level home that had recently been renovated. “The final touch was to bring in the feeling of home,” McGriff says. “This home had a midcentury vibe and a very unique floor plan that needed to be showcased. My goal was to bring in natural elements to blend seamlessly with the outdoor view from the massive windows.” The same neutral, timeless design was then carried throughout the home.

Kitchen Redesign # 2

High-end refresh on a casual budget

This is one of our most transformative kitchen makeovers so far. The homeowner’s desire was to gain top dollar for this lakefront, luxury-living home. A kitchen refresh (along with a fresh coat of paint throughout and some other minor cosmetic changes) would get them there. They offered us complete creative control on this project. Because we were choosing a design that would appeal to the most number of buyers, we went with a very neutral color palette. White stands for all things pure and clean. So whether you are listing your home or want to love your kitchen (which btw is where we typically spend most of our time in the home), white is a great choice.

The Challenge

The more existing elements you are working around with any design, the more challenging it will be. For instance, the tile floors in this home needed to stay. We were working with a casual budget and new tile throughout was not in the plan. So although all the other colors in the room were being updated, the floors were remaining a creamy-taupe mix. When choosing colors, you must first consider the existing colors that are unable to be changed and go from there. Many projects make a wrong turn when the existing color palette is ignored. In this project, we coordinated a mild gray-toned wall color with a soft, white cabinetry color. (Side note – when you say you want “white” cabinets, that doesn’t really mean stark white cabinets because that is not typically what you are visualizing. There are many white choices – choose wisely and carefully.)

The final element that turned this kitchen from dark and dreary to light and airy is the beautiful granite countertops. This color blended beautifully with the wall and tile color and tied the gray and taupe tone together nicely in a very subtle way. This kitchen is easy on the eyes. In other words, you see all the elements as one beautiful design versus your eye being drawn to each individual element in the room. And that, my friend, examples a fabulous outcome!

AND HERE’S THE BEFORE

Kitchen are the new heart of the home, whereas in the past, living rooms held that title. Your kitchen is likely the most entered room in the house.

Fun fact about kitchens – By the mid-’90s nearly all new construction homes incorporate some level of open-concept. Since that was over 20 years ago, it is likely to be time for a refresh, right?

Did this refresh impact this home sale? You be it did! This one was under contract is 10 days and at top dollar! Contact us for your kitchen refresh if you are interested in gaining a sophisticated design on a casual budget.

Top Dollar Lakefront Living (Vacant)

Which home would you want to purchase? It’s a no-brainer, right? And which home would you be willing to pay more for? Another no-brainer. This “house-to-home” project involved giving the house a face-lift (refresh) and vacant home staging for highest buyer appeal. In order to gain top dollar for this home, the sellers were willing to update key elements that would make the highest impact. Among this list was fresh paint throughout, updated lightening and a fabulous kitchen make-over.

With just those few key updates coupled with a simple, yet sophisticated home stage, this house has been transformed into a home that buyer’s will emotionally connect to. Check out this surprising transformation.
