Located on the “mezzanine” level of a post-war building in the heart of Greenwich Village, this “starter” apartment needed a jump start. We repainted the walls in a pale blue-gray with white moldings and trim. New light fixtures were installed to provide a generous amount of light in the rooms. A furniture plan that blended with the walls and trim creates a soothing oasis.
When home staging a starter home, our goal is to demonstrate that here is where true “living” can begin. You own it so the walls don’t have to be white. You can buy real furniture. You can even buy fun, funky touches like the shaggy, sheep pillow. We want to inject fun, lively and playful touches as well as providing that sense of zen calm that you are finally home. We make every inch of the 863 square feet count – with a dining area and a office just inside the bedroom.
The bedroom is large enough for a king size bed. With this much space, it is always good to be able to tuck a desk into a quiet corner. By adding functionally defined nooks we create the sense of walking from “room to room”. We put two large wenge armoires in the space for additional clothing storage. It looks fabulous! The Juliet balcony at the end of the Living Room adds an air of sophistication, amplified by the chunky chair rail molding. The kitchen, with stainless steel appliances and sleek contemporary cabinets, blends the best of old and new, character and technology. By keeping our color palette connected throughout the unit, we create a harmonious flow.
A reading chair, in comfy black leather, is a tempting spot in which to curl up with a book. The broker thought the finished look was pretty “amazing. That’s what we like to hear! 🙂
