What is an interior stylist?
An interior 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. Interior stylists harness that emotion by creating a space that potential buyers can see themselves in.
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 odors.
Jim’s Interior Design stylists goes that much further. A Jim’s interior 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.
An interior stylist is an expert in
- Making the function of each room in a home very clear. In large or small spaces, a stylist can demonstrate how furniture can be positioned to make the most of what is on offer.
- Masking unattractive rooms
- Taking unusual nooks and crannies and using creative styling to display the best possible function of a space
- Creating beautiful spaces through the use of complimentary colours, textures and interior accents
What are the benefits in using an interior stylist?
The biggest benefit in using an interior stylist is that interior styling can add a substantial boost to the value of your home. Australian studies by the Institute of Home Staging have reported that property styling can add 7 – 17% to your property sale price.
