Staging the Icon Highrise in Nashville

Have you ever dreamed about living in a swanky downtown highrise like the Icon in Nashville?  Imagine – living right above all the coolest restaurants and the nightlife, plus a killer view from every vantage point . . .

 Nashville’s Icon in the Gulch

 

A few weeks ago, I Speed Staged two condos in the Icon – one right after the other.  I snapped some pretty good photos of the larger of the two condos and thought you’d like to see them.  Let’s start with a couple of the “befores.” This is the previous view of the kitchen and living room area.  It’s VERY important that the seller opens all the window shades for every showing, of course.

The bedroom kinda resembled a cell block before:

The office/den looked a bit off-kilter, like they had just moved in the sofa and left in the middle of the room.

Allison and I got at it – moving around furniture, pulling out accessories from cabinets and closets, and packing away anything that didn’t play up this fabulous highrise condo.  When you have lots of gray (walls and concrete floors), punches of color are helpful.  We used color to move the buyers’ eyes across the space and to features we wanted to highlight.  Here are the after photos:

If I were young, single, and childless, this is definitely where I’d want to live!  How about you?

  1. I love, love, love that space! I’m so jealous you got to stage such a gorgeous piece of architecture. :) It looks spectacular now that you have performed your magic.

    By the way, I love your work, you are an inspiration!

  2. Much better, like a visual relief! I like seeing you do the modern stuff. BTW in the middle of our project at my house now, with contractor here, and it looks like Grant Beige is the winner, not Jute. As they say, it’s not over until it’s over…but it already looks so much better with the paneling out and smooth drywall. We went for that. I wish you could come to the Bay Area and rearrange all my furniture after it’s done.

  3. I think it would be exciting to live there for a time if you were single or married without kids. Great use of color……all that grey would get depressing.

  4. It’s shiny and nice, but no… I don’t think I’d want to live there. I think I would feel trapped and exposed all at the same time, if that makes sense. :)
