Story Behind the Sale

It’s not every day we get to style a house of this calibre. It had not just one, not two…. but FOUR LIVING AREAS!

It’s great to have so much space to live in, but during the sale process, it can be challenging for some buyers to visualise how to best utilise each room.  That is why we’ve separated the living areas into:

  • Formal living & dining
  • Media room
  • Family living
  • Upstairs family living

Result of the sale: [pending] This home has just hit the market!


Formal Living & Dining Area

Choosing which style should we use depends on a few different factors, one of them being the architecture of the exterior. In this case, the house was a traditional build, so although it looked modern on the inside following the renovations, we could not go ‘too contemporary’ with our furniture choices. Mixing traditional and contemporary elements would result in an inconsistent look, potentially turning some buyers away.

We’ve gone with a black & grey colour palette across all living areas, colour-matching the brand-new carpet and other dark features of the home (black feature walls and nooks).

For the formal living & dining area, we’ve created a luxe look with the help of tufted chairs, glass surfaces and a floral arrangement.

Family Living

When it comes to styling homes with multiple living areas, our rule of thumb is to limit the number of TVs to only one or two. Yes, TVs are an important part of the Australian culture, which is why we love using them in staging.  They add an element of lifestyle, but if we’re being honest, they are not the most beautiful object to photograph.

That’s why for this particular living room – we have gone with a conversational area in a more laid-back style. The quality of the furniture was still on the same high level as the formal living to secure a continuous flow from one room to another.
