The Property:

A show home in a prestigious development overlooking the sea at St Ives.

The Client Brief:

The client had built a terrace of houses at a prominent spot in St Ives, with far reaching sea views, and Elaine was initially instructed to dress a show home at the development that would reflect its setting. Following her success with number 5, the client Elaine was instructed to create a second show home at number 1, furnishing and dressing the property with a quick turnaround of just a few weeks, in order to demonstrate the potential of the house to prospective buyers.

The Process:

As with any short timescale project, we ensured that our on-site survey was very thorough, and that the clients would give Elaine free rein with the design decisions, allowing her to work quickly. Making the most of the contemporary design of the property, and the interesting shape of the rooms in number 1, Elaine carefully considered the most complementary styles of furnishing and dressing. Using her expertise in the Cornish luxury holiday home and sales market, Elaine selected luxurious fabrics and hand-chosen accessories meant that 1 St Eia could be imagined as a private home or luxury holiday let, broadening its appeal to prospective buyers.

Elaine also created a furniture package to complete the property with the installed furnishings. With Elaine’s experience and guidance, prospective buyers are able to understand their potential return on investment after purchasing the property.

The Result:

Very happy clients! Following Elaine’s show home design project, the St Eia development then attracted a lot of attention, making it clear that there is certainly value in commercial show homes when selling a property in a development. The furnishing and dressing at number 1 St Eia are bright, welcoming and location-appropriate.
