By |2021-08-18T16:46:24+10:00August 18th, 2021|Home Staging Tips|

As Home Stagers, we see a lot of homes with similar layouts, but we never got to style two houses in different suburbs that had almost identical floorplans. Until last week. You may think ‘Oh, nice! That’s easy, just copy and paste!’, but there’s more to it than ctrl+C and ctrl+V. There’s a lot of things we need to take into account before we choose the most suitable style. In this case, the most prominent influencing factor was the architecture of the homes. 39 Taffetta Drive Mount Cotton • “older” home that has [...]

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it has been 12 months since I started working at Foxy! Time flies when you’re having fun! Or when you’re in a lockdown unable to do much else… or in my case… both! Just a heads up, this article is not going to be one of the professional, well-structured blog posts you are used to. Oh no, quite the opposite.
