Putting on the Finishing Touches!
Even though we’ve been flipping a house, we’re still steadily designing! Take a peek at our latest project!
It’s always good to step back and take stock, and a few weeks ago that’s what we did for 2016. We evaluated where we can improve, what worked, what didn’t, and we’ve decided to make a few changes this year. And those changes will come with some advantages for our clients.
One of the major changes we’re making is the introduction of our new Finishing Touches package!
This week’s post gives a general overview on an actual project we just finished using the Finishing Touches package!
Here’s the skinny: A client reached out to us saying that she wanted to transform a spare bedroom to into a vacation rental for Air BnB. Air BnB is basically like Expedia except you are opting to stay with local people in their homes.
If you’ve got the space, an Air BnB vacation rental can be incredibly lucrative. The key to making top dollar is looking at the space as an investment. Obviously, the better the space looks, the more people you can attract which will drive up the price. Our over-arching goal was to create a space that had the look and feel of a 5 star hotel but also functioned for multiple activities like sleeping, relaxing, working, and conversing.
These clients were pretty handy but lacked vision on how to pull everything together. So they reached out to us and our partnership resulted in the impromptu development and implementation of the new Finishing Touches package!
Here’s the BEFORE!
An empty space ripe with potential!
That awkward niche is screaming for some function!
Here’s a simple overview of the package: We create a vision by supplying 2D and 3D renderings and shopping list with clickable links. Then we’ll finish up by shopping for and implementing the finishing touches. You’re in charge of ordering and completing any cosmetic work. Once all pieces have arrived and all work is complete, we finish it and you get a professionally designed space!
These clients were handy but did hire an electrician to install a ceiling fan and a carpenter to build and install the shelves.
Here’s a couple of progress pics. These guys painted, built their own headboard, and assembled all furnishings and listened to our idea about installing shelving for a television and a floating desk to fill an awkward niche area that would’ve just been wasted space.
After all the decisions had been made and we were just waiting for items to arrive, I went shopping to make some final selections on accessories. With all the pieces ordered and all the work completed, we came in and put the finishing touches on the space! Being in the space allows us to use our tricks of trade to finish it and give it a pristine professional finish.
Here’s how the space looked when we came in…good progress made by the clients.
We brought it to the finish line and here is the stunning result!
We installed window treatments, hung any and all artwork clocks etc., lightly cleaning, placing furniture and rugs, steaming/ironing bedding and curtains, touched up the paint, and styled everything to give the room that WOW factor!
The clients and I were in communication as much as needed throughout the duration of the process and, start to finish, the whole project took about 2 months to complete.
Since this package is brand new, we’re running a promotion on it by knocking 20% off for anyone who commits to this new package in the month of February! Woohoo!!! Please contact us for details!
See, I told you we’d return to the ‘pretty’. We’d love to hear from you! Let us know what you think!
Create. Innovate. Decorate!
