Quarterly Blog Review

Can you believe how fast the year has gone? It feels like two weeks ago it was Christmas and all the madness that ensues at that time of the year!

At Silk Home we have been working hard to not only stage homes but also put out content for everyone who is interested in home staging and interior design.

We’ve decided to do a quarterly blog review, taking a trip back down memory lane with some of our favourite and most loved blog posts of the year so far!

First we have Twist on a Teenage Boys Bedroom! Our clients wanted a modern chic/Hamptons vibe for their inner city apartment so that when their teenage grandson moved to Newcastle for University, he had a room that felt like his own. This project was really exciting as we had to keep a certain style while adding masculine elements and keeping the room youthful.

Secondly, as part of our Colour Love collection, our post on Green Love earned a whole lotta love. As the use of of foliage, succulents and cacti in homes grew, so has everyone’s love for the colour green. As both a statement colour and an undertones colour, green has a lot of elements that can be used to create a great space!

Next, we had our trip back in time with the Feature Property – Lorna Street, Waratah. This classic home is locally renowned for its traditional structure and magical presence. When staging such a classic home, it is great to add bits and pieces that don’t take away from the traditional, 1895 home that is ‘Braeside’.

Finally, First Impressions Count is a great advice blog on the importance of your entryway. The blog gives advice on how to make your entry feel more connected to your home rather than just an add on.
