now we've all heard about staging. it's the process designed to showcase a home's best assets, impress buyers, and of course to get it sold quickly for the highest possible price. and when it comes to staging, jill biggs from coldwell banker doesn't use the term lightly. join jill and her team on a journey as she transformed her client's home. we're here today at 350 7th street in hoboken,
than this in hoboken. i think you should notice the massive space that we're in. if i don't stage it, people will come in here, they're not really going to realize that you can have a living room, a dining room. i need to lay it out so when you come in here you get a sense of just how big this space really is. i never sell a vacant unit. it can be the difference, on a high-end unit, of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and on a mid-priced unit, $50,000. some of the easy changes, things that you could notice immediately, are the drapes. we're going to remove the drapes, take down the poles, have it patched. the whole unit's going to be painted a way more modern tone. there is ribbon inlay that surrounds the entire room on the floor. that's going to be lightened up. the floors are going to be redone, and just those two things alone are going to make a dramatic change. now to the kitchen.
and taking it out is going to completely modernize this. this room i see as the biggest challenge. it used to be a children's suite. it has two separate rooms with a closet up top. without furniture you can absolutely not get a sense of how this space is. you're going to be very excited to see what we do with this. so now i have to get out of here. you've seen the scope of the work. it's a little bit somewhat overwhelming. wait till you see what my group does to this place. [music playing] we're almost done. it's been about three days, brought in a whole bunch of stuff, my whole group is up there. i know you got to see this before. wait till you see the transformation, and the value that's been added to this unit. ok now take a look at this.
so i'm sure you can see the dramatic changes. in the floors, which were dark, made them look dated, brightened them up, put a flat finish on it. removed the window treatments that we had throughout the house, which brought all of this light in here, which brings me to a crucial point. light sells property. every listing i take gets a fresh coat of paint i added this nice gray neutral color. white trim throughout the unit makes the ceilings tall, modernizes the space, again, bringing in more light. in the kitchen, we had a backsplash that dated it. had it removed, and i had the backslash painted to match the rest of the house. it's a simple trick, gets you a lot of bang for your budget. i partner up with two interior designers and they really make the magic happen.
we created different vignettes or seating areas. it's a very important thing to do to make people feel comfortable. a great point to notice throughout the space is the stylizing and the accessories. they act as eye candy for the buyer. they remember the accents, they remember the tones, they remember the sparkle. so now you can see why staging is so important. we hit the market soon, and i don't expect that we'll stay there for very long. for more tips on staging visit coldwellbanker.com up next, we're heading to san francisco to check out the latest design project by benjamin dhong. plus, we'll visit a luxury loft in tribeca. "open house is brought to you in part by coldwell banker,
welcome back. and now we're heading to woodside, california, which is just outside san francisco. we're checking out a design project by interior designer benjamin dhong. this family friendly space is filled with a rich palette of neutral colors and a unique blend of textures. take a look at how he created a serene space for his client. welcome. my name is benjamin dhong. i'm an interior designer here in san francisco, and i'm going to take you on a private tour of our project here in woodside, california. when we first found this house, it was a 1930s garden house. utterly charming, however very white. what it needed was coziness, livability, and still be elegant. here in the living room, a big challenge was this happens to also be a thoroughfare for the main house. rather than have two facing sofas, which create this wall and make the room feel smaller, we
because we knew we'd be creating several different seating areas, we needed to tie the whole room together. and we used this natural seagrass floor covering, which brings a natural element from the garden into the room. i love putting a game table in the living room. perfect place to have a glass of wine at the end of the day, read a paper, or sit and enjoy your garden. and when designing your living room, please don't forget about the corners. in this little area we added this tufted banquette, perfect place to curl up and read a book. and above it, we added this beautiful cloud painting. it adds a dreamy window to the room. i love this little guest bedroom. i call it "summer in the hamptons." the key to this room is all the layering of textures we did. beginning with the walls, we enveloped them with a light wool wallpaper. for our beds, we selected wing-backed headboards. they just make you feel like you're being embraced. and last but not least, we did not forget about our fifth wall-- the ceiling.
those old childhood memories. the master bedroom was originally a cavernous blank slate. however, what we wanted to create was a sophisticated treetop nest. we first applied on all the walls this wonderful raw silk wallpaper. we ran the same wallpaper across and throughout the ceiling, and what that did is create this beautiful cocoon. and what this little nest needed was a beautiful crib. so i designed this canopy. not only does it provide romance and drama in this room, however it also serves a practical purpose by hiding these beams. and the best part of that-- no posts. every bedroom needs that one location where you just lounge. so instead of designing a normal sofa, we created this more like an open gondola. and we flanked it with these two plaster consoles to bring an earthy element into the room. thank you for joining me. i hope you enjoyed our visit. maybe you found inspiration to bring
welcome back. and now we're in the big apple, inside a luxury tribeca condo. the oversized windows offer 180 degree sweeping city views. this loft-like space features an incredible chef's kitchen. and the layout gives you endless options of how you can design your own space. each bedroom in this nearly 7,000 square foot apartment has its own en suite bathroom. and who doesn't love that? take a look. hi. i'm tracie golding from stribling and associates. welcome to 25 north moore, located in the tribeca neighborhood of manhattan. tribeca is known for its beautiful loft spaces, but today i'm going to take you into a home that takes loft living to a whole new level.
this loft is absolutely gorgeous. it has almost 7,000 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and many more rooms that you'll see on the tour today. my favorite room in the house is the 67 foot long wide open living space with 180 degrees of city views. and it begins right here in the living room. this living room is truly an entertainer's dream, but i think the star of this room are the views outside of one world trade center, the frank gehry building, and the woolworth building. it's bright, airy, and peaceful. and the ideal space to spend time with family and friends. the living room flows seamlessly into the dining room, and in this setting every meal will taste like a gourmet meal. trust me. and after that delicious meal you can curl up and watch a movie in this intimate media
but let's not forget the architectural details in the space-- beautiful original concrete columns, reclaimed barn wood floors, high ceilings, and oversized windows. if you like to cook and entertain at the same time, i found the kitchen for you. this front and back state of the art kitchen has custom cabinetry, all the highest end appliances, and corian counter tops. it's truly worthy of a celebrity chef. on the other side of the home, down this gallery style hallway, we'll find the master suite. follow me. just imagine going to sleep each night and waking up to these inspiring views. with the western exposure to the river, and the southern exposure to the financial district, you'll feel you're floating above the city. the master suite also features a gorgeous spa-like bathroom.
with two huge walk-in closets, there is plenty of space for any fashionista. thanks for joining me today. i hope you enjoyed the tour of this absolutely spectacular tribeca loft. that's all for now. we hope you enjoyed the show. but before you go, i wanted to tell you about a little movement we're having here at "open house" that we want you to be a part of. check out my "breakfast with open house" videos on facebook every weekend. they're delicious, they're easy, they're simple, and we want to hear what your having too, so we can all have breakfast together.
