By Collette Hanlon of Home Stagers, based in Norwich
One of the aspects that I enjoy most about my work is that it often offers unique opportunities to see a wide variety of different and unusual properties. One week I can be working on a London apartment and the next in a converted chapel in a rural village! For somebody like myself who has a lifelong passion for property it is a dream career. I can often visualise the potential in a property within the first few minutes of crossing the threshold and enthusiasm takes hold! Naturally, our client’s plans and budgets are foremost in the planning procedure and these vary as widely as the properties themselves. From providing a rental show home package to maximise the property’s marketing potential, to helping a client totally redesign their home to suit their changing needs, no two weeks are ever the same! Occasionally, a property will really stand out and no matter how hard I try its simply impossible not to fall in love. The location is amazing, the architecture is perfect for the setting, and most importantly it feels like a home. One such property I have recently been working in fits this criteria exactly; situated on the North Norfolk coast, overlooking the salt marshes with the most spectacular Norfolk vistas you could wish for. It has been renovated to the highest standard with an exceptional attention to detail which allows the original features to add character and warmth. The contemporary travertine bathrooms and stunning oak kitchen have brought this property into the 21st century and created a home tailored for today’s lifestyle. Location, character, contemporary details, space, light, and most importantly a property that wraps its walls around you and feels like a home, who wouldn’t fall in love? A key element that figures throughout our work is that whether we are creating a beautiful show home or working with a family to create a home that works for their changing needs and desires it has to be
tailored to fit a lifestyle, whether that is real or aspirational!
