New listing - Check it out!

My latest staging 'project' listed with the Bennett Real Estate Pros.

Checkout the following listing - 275 McLeod.

275 McLeod

Is a great, newly renovated heritage home (the original structure was built in 1929) which is now 2 condos (one at approx. 890 sq ft and the other at 1490 sq ft). The owner kept the heritage charm (take a look at the stunning banister, the over sized windows, the original exterior, extra high ceilings and the architectural interest in the master loft) but included some more current touches such as a stainless steel kitchen back splash, modern sinks, current colour palette, and espresso stain hardwood. You can see the work in progress with this video.

See the finished product at under their listings link.

This unit is the large of the two. The staging itself consists of a main floor open living room including a great window seat for extra seating for nights of entertaining, a dining table that seats 6 and a gourmet kitchen with a large island. The colour palette is very easy and fresh, cream, beige, espresso and some pops of yellow and green. The furniture is streamlined but still comfortable for lounging and for guests.

When you enter the main floor full bath off of one of two bedroom, you'll notice the extra high ceilings, the contemporary sink and vanity and the serene colour tones that make everyday feel like a spa getaway.

Upstairs is where you'll find the master loft, which includes a large den for reading, office space, an art studio, home theatre or for the fashion conscience an extremely large closet space! In this situation, I staged this area as a multi-functional den including book cases, a smooth glass coffee table and a low but cozy oyster colour sofa. The lower sofa really accentuates the architectural interest in the ceilings. Down the hall on your way to the master bath and boudoir, you'll notice even more room for storage with a low minimalist style cabinet in espresso playing off of the lighter colour tones. This cabinet is also low but smooth and tucked away.

The master bedroom is bright and fresh with two sky lights. this room is also so large that there is room for a king size bed plus side tables and a dresser - this is extremely rare in a condo! I chose a very soft colour palette for this room - white on white. The bed frames, linens and pillows are all dressed in white with a few touches of grey, green and pink. Lighter bedrooms tend to be more calming and relaxing. The furniture, again, is very streamlined not a lot of fuss!

Other little decor tricks to notice in this place, the wall treatments. Wall tattoos are increasing in popularity you'll see them in the master bedroom, the master bathroom and my favourite the dining room (the large spoon and fork). The use of glass tables in the loft den and the living room are function but they disappear so they do not take up too much space, this is a great trick in a condo or any smaller space.
