Capitol Hill Cool Condo

I don’t even know what to say about this crazy cool nest. It is in the heart of the hippest part of Capitol Hill for sure. There are no bedrooms, just 3 niches for mattresses and maybe a touch of furniture. It’s spacious and interesting. Moving our furniture in and out was pretty funny. One of us would climb halfway up a ladder and someone would be at the top and someone would be at the bottom. We would hand pieces of furniture, art & accessories in a chain. It is top of our list of unusual staging jobs.

Day in the Life of our Furniture

Could not wait for professional photos because I am so excited to share this hipster home. Light, bright, airy and a whole lotta fun to stage.

We have had the molded chairs in the warehouse just waiting to be put to work. I struggled with the head chairs until I saw an Instagram post showing wicker chairs at the head of the table. Luckily our Donghia chairs were raising their hand for the job. It’s a first for them in this setting but they assured me they were up for the task. WE. LOVE. THE. LOOK.!

Note the bar set up in the back ground. We have our go-to pro that is always up for the task of creating a bar. Thank you Jen! (I will do a post specifically on her bar set up…stay tuned). Sometimes she brews coffee or tea (if there is no soy sauce) to create the colors in the bottles.

The leather Atrium Chair has also been hiding in the warehouse. We loaded it for a bedroom but found that it was more impact full in the living area. The live edge coffee table calms down AND warms up the modern vibe. (That’s a heavy responsibility for a coffee table). Every piece has its role. We only had 1 art wall so we made the most of it by going large. Originally we had a console but in the words of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez it was just “Meh". The art was thrilled to hog the wall and take the job away from our console.

An amateur photo shot of the first impression but I think it makes you look up and say “wow”. It’s job is to set the tone of the home. It’s says “expect this home to be modern, sexy and ever-so-hip”.

The gold and black side tables have often been used as night stands. They turn the design conversation to metals. We paired it with gold lamps and finished with a metallic gold circle mirror. Everyone is happy…

The final image is the 2nd bedroom. So much going on with so little color. It’s all about tones and textures.

We will be featuring this house again with better photos but just had to share because I am inspired. The listing will be out soon- it is by Team Diva Real Estate. Staging is by us at Open House Staging.

This hip listing went pending not long after we drove away. It was listed by Jason Viydo for Windermere Real Estate, photographed by Jason Mercio from Mercio Photography and staged by the adorable team of Stager Girls at Open House.
