After the long, cold winter that we have had here in New Jersey, we welcome warm sunny days to relax and spend time outdoors. It’s a great time now to plant flowers, work on gardens and get our patios or decks spruced up. With summer just around the corner, vacation plans or days at the beach are all on our minds. It’s also a good time to redecorate. I like to bring outside elements of nature into interior spaces when decorating. For a refreshing summer look, I replace those less saturated winter colors for light, bright colors in accessories for the home along with weathered driftwood or reclaimed wood items. Changing pillows, bedding, floral arrangements, and some decorative accents are an easy and affordable way to get a new look for less.
If you are renting out a home at the Jersey shore, there may be certain home improvements needed before renters are able to move in. Distinctive Styling also offers turn key operations to help get your vacation home or rental property ready for the summer. After an in-depth consultation to go over our recommendations, we are able to coordinate painters, contractors and home cleaning professionals if needed to work on your project. Subsequently, we will set up your apartment, condo or large size home with everything needed to make your listing attractive for summer rental or corporate relocations. I recently worked with a colleague redesigning a 6 bedroom house for rent in Ocean Grove, NJ. We repositioned existing furniture for better flow while bringing in a few new pieces. Staging this home with new bedding, linens, towels, kitchenware, curtains and coastal decor has made it so inviting and appealing, that it would easily rent for the summer.
