Sandy & Allen’s Wedding

We had the pleasure of styling a gorgeous wedding for an amazing couple – Sandy and Allen.  Their big day was  held at the Halifax Seaport Market in downtown Halifax.  We had an amazing team of vendors that worked with us for pipe and drape, harvest tables, the large floral chandelier, the love letters, the gorgeous floral and on and on.  We brought in two lounge areas and other larger pieces such as the cake table, and guest signing/gift table.

Although these aren’t the professional photos we thought we’d share them in the mean time.

Getting married and looking to create an amazing venue? We’d love to help!

Amanda & John’s wedding day

Sharing some photos we took of a recent set up for our wonderful clients Amanda and John who were married in the gorgeous Farm at South Cove.  We set up three lounge areas in this beautiful barn venue.  Two lounge areas were set up next to each other near the dance floor, with another more masculine lounge area in the loft area.  We pulled from our extensive wedding furniture inventory that includes rugs and pillow inventory to complete the spaces.

If you are looking for wedding furniture that is unique and will take your wedding venue to the next level give us a call or send us an email.  We’d be honoured to help make your day amazing!

Updated Family Room

Our clients mean everything to us and we sure feel thankful for the special ones that we get the privilege to work with. This past summer we were invited to a home in Enfield to complete a family room makeover. This wasn’t an ordinary family room; it had incredible potential with gorgeous vaulted ceilings and sun lights. With a large family our client wanted a space that could accommodate seating for everyone and still be super comfy and cozy for those family game nights, relaxing with friends or holiday get-togethers.

Our client loves purples and pinks and we were tasked with creating a space that was a touch girlie, but balanced enough that her husband would still enjoy the room. We designed a new floor to ceiling fireplace to be the focal point in the room. We also installed some new pot lights, replaced the old fan with a gorgeous hanging chandelier, and of course, some fresh paint.

Outdated Condo: From Drab to Fab  

This condo located in the beautiful south end of Halifax with gorgeous views of the city was just oozing with potential; however a full remodel of this unit was in order. To give you a sense of what I was dealing with the entire unit was outdated. We’re talking pink and beige walls, popcorn ceilings, an old oak kitchen, old laminate, original lighting, carpet throughout the bedrooms; basically everything felt old and outdated in this place.

From the moment I walked through the space I could envision a modern transformation of this spectacular living space. Our work included a new modern kitchen being installed, new flooring throughout, new doors and trim, new paint and lighting and we fully furnished and decorated the entire condo. Oh, did I mention the dreaded popcorn ceiling – yes it went bye bye!

The best part of this project was that our client wanted a bedroom for his daughter that she would love and feel at home in.  We had so much fun creating a Scandinavian style bedroom with blue accents (her favorite colour) and incorporating a hanging chair. We thought it was so sweet that his daughter’s happiness was so important.  We think he should get best Dad of the year award!

Voted Professional Stager of the Year (RESA)

I’m so incredibly excited to have won Canada’s Professional Stager of the Year in the Vacant staging category (RESA – Real Estate Staging Association). Top 10 has been an honour by itself with so many incredibly talented stagers across Canada. So winning top place is very humbling! I couldn’t do it without my amazing team! When I started Staged for Upsell almost 5 years ago this wasn’t even on my radar or something I would have thought was possible. I’m pretty lucky to get to do what I love everyday!

Canada's Top Stager of the Year

Spring 2018 QEII Lottery Home

What a honour to be chosen as the designer for the Spring 2018 QEII Lottery Home. This gorgeous home was being built by Stonewater Homes in Indigo Shores on McCabe Lake Drive.

The style chosen for the home was modern farmhouse. Modern farmhouse style is extremely popular in the United States with shows such as Fixer Upper showcasing this gorgeous, relaxed style.  Design choices during the build and all the furniture and decor choices have created a space that appeals equally to men and women. We hope you get a chance to visit it in person at 510 McCabe Lake Drive. It’s now open to the public 7 days a week. You can buy your tickets at QEII Grand Prize Showhome.

The theme carries throughout the home, with nautically striped bedding in the master,  adjoining walk-in closet with white linen attire nautically striped hand bag for the sailing family, to nautically striped hand towels in the master bath to coordinating bathrooms. Not one room is out of theme to create a feeling of a modern urban cottage living at its best.
