CASA GLAM: sold in 1 week
I think calling it “love at first sight” is the best way to start telling you about my home staging for Casa Glam and the result achieved …
We are in Umbria, inside a beautifully preserved historic village, in which typical red bricks shine under a sky that could not be more bright&blue. In the little square with the ancient well of the village there is a small earth-sky building with a grey-pink facade: this is Casa Glam!
The family that lived there until a few months ago decided to sell it and requested my intervention to stage it before putting it on the market. An empty shell but of great character, with a country chic imprint on one side and a contemporary cut on the other. It was love at first sight and I immediately started planning the home staging intervention.
Then one day the real estate broker in charge of the sale told me he wanted to show Casa Glam to an Anglo-American couple who in those days were visiting a series of properties within a radius of 80 km. I had only few hours to stage it but in the end I manage to set up all the rooms and I must say that the result was very satisfying !
Just few minutes to step myself away and the potential buyers arrived: Anne and Gregor Wilson, the Anglo-American couple in love with Italy and looking for a house with an authentic soul. I find out later that the first words, climbing the stairs, was an enthusiastic “Wow!” Was it the effect of the majestic mirror with a frame of golden leaves?
Anne and Gregor’s home tour lasted some 40 minutes: it is difficult to leave a place that fascinates you… A few hours passed and the purchase proposal arrived. In less than 24 hours the purchase agreement was signed: the couple had found the perfect home for their needs – and more important they really fell in love with it. And the seller got exactly the asking price. Without the home staging it was not possible to achieve this result.
- For Casa Glam I focused on the combination of contemporaneity and tradition.
- The whites were lit by the glitter of the gold leaf and notes of mustard, while the grays found their balance in the black details and in dove gray nuance.
- In the sleeping area the palette turned onto a natural chic mood that included three main colors: mauve, turquoise and sage.
- Fresh flowers, candles, soft lighting and a pleasant scent contributed to engaging and stimulating all the senses.
