What is a house stylist?
A house stylist is trained in interior design but has a flair for real estate and for making a property live up to its full potential and appeal to a broad market.
Buying a home is an emotional and aspirational task. Professional house stylists harness that emotion by creating a blank space that potential buyers fall in love with.
Traditionally, the basics of presenting your home for sale are to clean, tidy, neaten the garden, complete small maintenance jobs internally and to get rid of any funny odours.
A house stylist goes that much further. A property stylist will fill your home with quality furnishings such as cushions, art, books, plants, lighting or furniture pieces that will make the very most of what the property has to offer and help your property reach its optimum selling price on auction day.
