Tiffany Hunter Home was asked to prepare an oceanfront home in Laguna Beach for sale. The owner, who owns multiple properties, had been a bachelor when he bought it and had never taken the time to furnish it correctly. The architecture of the home itself was beautiful, but some of the rooms were dark and the landscape was over grown. Bottom line: the house did not make a good first impression.
Before: the landscaping was so overgrown it hit the home's stunning architecture. Furthermore, the stucco was dirty and water-stained.
After: we had the whole house painted, replaced the overgrown plants with succulents, and planted bougainvillea to add color.
2. Guest Room
Before: the guest room was painted a muddy gray. The furniture overpowered the room, making it feel cramped.
After: we had the room painted a soothing gray-blue. We replaced the furniture with a more appropriately-scaled bed and mirrored nightstands.
3. Master Bedroom
Before: the master bedroom seemed chaotic.
After: We replaced the bed, nightstands and lamps; dressed the bed with beautiful Nancy Corzine linens, and created a seating area in the expansive room.
4. Living Room
Before: the living room looked drab and uninviting
After: We used the owner's sofas and coffee table, but added art, pillows, console tables, lamps and accessories to create a beautiful coastal living room.
5. Dining Room
Before: the George Nelson lamp overpowered the dining room, creating a distraction.
After: we replaced the lamp with a glass chandelier, added large-scale art and a Barbara Barry credenza
6. Rooftop Deck
Before: The rooftop desk, one of the key selling points of the house, was unfurnished.
After: We added patio furniture, rugs, accessories, and planters with bougainvillea to demonstrate how the space might be used.
7. Front Courtyard
Before: the front courtyard showed no distinct purpose.
After: we created a potting bench to show a use for the space.
