Home Staging is the art of using certain styling and furnishing techniques to optimise the look of a property and enhance its attractiveness with a view to renting or selling it at the desired price. Home staging has become a huge trend in the real estate industry and an almost indispensable tool when trying to sell or rent property.
Trained by the home staging ‘house doctor’ Ann Maurice, Justine Knox was one of the pioneers of home staging in Spain. With over 15 years’ experience in home décor and a keen eye for what seduces and sells, internationally acclaimed interior designer Justine Knox has worked her magic on many properties, charming buyers and tenants time and again. The sheer amount of homes she has designed over the years means she knows exactly what buyers are looking for and the lifestyle held in their minds’ eye. Moreover, she has become an expert in enhancing the high-points and playing down drawbacks, using professional and proven techniques and tricks of the trade designed to ensure a successful outcome.
Her objective approach to a property, stripping it of any item or style that is either too idiosyncratic or too personal, will help to create a blank, depersonalised canvas on which people can paint their dream lifestyles, punctuated by the right accessories to hint at the lives that could be lived within. Her home staging skills are widely used by private vendors and property developers alike, to present show homes, new builds and refurbishment projects in their very best light, to be sold at the right time and at the right price.
“When we were first advised to use a ‘Home Staging Professional’ for our luxury villa in Port D’Andratx, I didn’t have clue what they were talking about. Then we met Justine Knox and were intrigued by her way of giving our house the final ‘magic’ touch that creates the flair and atmosphere of luxury living… and also gets everybody excited that comes to visit us. Justine brings in an extraordinary talent for style and design, she has a very powerful judgment, and she can adapt her concepts to the individual style of your house (rather than imposing her own style). Also, she comes with a lot of passion for tiny details that make a nice difference. We will certainly use her services for our new building projects, too.”- Villa Port Andratx II
