East Alameda | 2019
This project spotlights a very unique challenge in Santa Fe properties. An older adobe home, built in 1934, this home was added to over the years, resulting in different materials used for the walls and floors, different elevations to the rooms, and odd room sizes. This home was on the market for many weeks, unstaged. Potential buyers and buyers’ agents were not responding to the home due to its confusing layout. When I was brought in to stage the home, I used furnishings and decor to show the purpose of each room, giving buyers the perspective the vacant home lacked. Using a soft contemporary style in the bedroom, the dramatic rock wall was softened giving the room an element of comfort. Smaller-scale furnishings in the combined living and dining space helped opened up the room while making it feel inviting.
