Cardiff Bungalow Home Staging

Getting into home stagings this last year has been a blast! We enjoy the challenge of transforming a space into something a family will walk into and envision themselves calling home. However, one thing they don't tell you when you decide you're going to add home staging to your already busy lives is that the time table to pull together this little act of magic...usually happens in about 1 week! From the initial inquiry to the photographers coming in to capture the staging...1 WEEK! 

The first few days of that week often are spent emailing & solidifying the deal. Then that leaves us about 2 or 3 days to pull together, shop, and source for all the items we need to create a warm and inviting home. Then there's packing day where we load our 16' box truck to the brim with all the furniture and decor for the next 2 days of installing. And on the last day, we do final touches and photograph the entire place.  It's a rigorous process that we are finally settling into after this year of practice.

Also, having an incredible team is imperative. Finding people whose vision we trust enables us to divide and conquer when there's so much to do in such a shot time. This home seemed like a breeze with our newest Witty Home Stagings team member: Hannah Boyne!

This little Bungalow in Cardiff is on the market & you can check it out here! If only to meet Rachel Stock, this homes listing agent, you should go take a tour. She is one of our favorite realtors out there! Check it out...

Valley Center Home Staging

Hello fellow furniture fanatic, 

It’s been a while since we’ve updated our blog with the latest happenings in the world of Witty. So today, we are dishing on our latest project that, no joke, cleared out our warehouse in one fell swoop.

We were approached by a new client to do a walkthrough of a home in Valley Center they were remodeling and listing on the market in May. Unsuspecting of the scope of what we were walking into, we took the tour and were BLOWN AWAY at both how beautiful the property was and the size!! As we walked through room after room of this gorgeous home, we were realizing that we would be taking on our largest design project to date. The home was MONSTROUS. It came fully equipped with a pool, tennis court, horse stable, entertainment cabana, a 2 bedroom/1 bath/kitchenette apartment above the garage, and so, so much more!

It is an understatement to say this home was magnificent. And that was one of the hardest challenges. We needed not only a massive amount of inventory to stage it top to bottom; we also needed inventory that would highlight the grandeur of the space. 

The task before us was to find pieces that spoke to the elevated esthetic of the remodel, while still pulling in splashes of rustic to incorporate the bones of the home. It was details like the gigantic exposed wooden beams in the ceiling & raw stone fireplace that reminded us we were still in Valley Center & not at a beach front home in Malibu. This combination lead to the style we loving coined as “Ranch House Chic.”

(Yeah, yeah! We probably aren't the first to coin the phrase, but let a girl dream!!)

In the end, we sourced a great deal of furniture, particularly for the outside portion of the home. 

We also were able to partner with our friends over at JOYBIRD to help furnish parts of both bedrooms, the apartment, the dinning room, and the office. They were the perfect pop of elegance we needed to add to each room!

Check out how it all turned out & let us know what you think!

As always, we asked our brilliant friend & fellow ladyboss, Amber Thrane, to come shoot the finished product!

 

ENJOY!!

FLASH BACK FRIDAY!!!

We have been at this rental business for a few years now and it is humbling to see how far we've come! Today, being Friday, felt like the right day to give you a little sneak peak into where we've grown from. 

We got our start in January of 2014 in my parents garage using just a few pieces from our home's and what we managed to purchase with our combined savings of $1400.  In just a few short years we have upgraded from a little storage unit and a Honda Civic to a commercial warehouse, a box truck, and a capacity to work throughout all of Southern California. It still blows me away to look at the photos of where we began!

We've had amazing opportunities to not only run a rental company but to branch out into new business ventures--like our in house photo studio and most recently, Witty Home Stagings. Everyday is a learning process of juggling the "BOSSLADY" lifestyle and motherhood. But that's not how it started...Witty began as two best friends (with no children screaming in the background) stealing their families' sofas just so they would have enough furniture to rent!

We've gone through many highs & lows, tons of furniture, a few warehouses, and our fare share of hair colors...ENJOY!

Shelter Residential Home Staging #2

This past March we got to partner up with some of our favorite creative minds over at Shelter Residential, a boutique real estate brokerage and design firm. If you didn’t see the last house we got to team up on, go check it out here!

Lauren & Ryan have a gift for turning the ordinary into something spectacular! This home was no exception…They made an outdated space look open, modern, stylized, and unique. So obviously, we were excited when they reached out to us to stage their newest masterpiece. Take a look at the finished result…

*And if you are on the hunt for a perfect home for you and your family, look no further, because it's still on the market!!! Click here to see the listing. You're welcome!*

JOYBIRD PHOTOSHOOT

*DRUM ROLL PLEASE*

We are so excited to announce...our new partnership with JOYBIRD!!

JOYBIRD is an incredible company that believes quality & style should be for everyone. No matter what your esthetic… neutral & mid-century mod or bright colored boho, they have something for everyone. 

This past week, we set out to create some delicious Joybird lounges with a few of our favorite creative minds! Our goal was to push ourselves outside of our normal style habits and pair colors and texture we typically wouldn't. Let us know what you think! And be sure to go follow all the talented creators who helped bring this shoot together!

Witty Home Staging

We recently had the pleasure of Staging a beautiful home in Pauma Valley, California for the incredible Shelter Residential. Let me just start out by saying that Lauren of Shelter just gets it! Her style? Flawless. And the homes they remodel are straight out of a magazine. So, needless to say when they asked us to stage this spanish style adobe...we were more than excited! If not a bit nervous to live up to their stylish standard.

Oh, not to mention Chelsea--my business partner--was newly pregnant and her first Trimester...well, it was not as enthused with the idea of having to stage a home and keep breakfast down. As for me, I had just given birth and had a 2 week old baby... but heck we were up for the challenge and ready to sink our teeth into this beautiful home. 

We are elated with how everything turned out! It was a fun challenge repurposing our inventory to fit such a specific esthetic. It forced us to see our pieces in new ways & pair them with a whole different charm! All while being pregnant and postpartum, of course!

 Our friend Amber Thrane of Dulcet Creative came and photographed the house & made it look that much better! Now, ready for the next one!

Circle Oak Ranch

We are already dreaming about 2018 and all the exciting things to come! How about you? But we also love to pause and reflect during this season back to see the amazing places we've been. From desert weddings to styled studio shoots, we've enjoyed taking our inventory to new and exciting places! One of our favorites by far was the Circle Oak Ranch shoot we did this past November with a hand full of dreamy vendors to create some drool worthy wedding portraits.
