College park home sold in 3 days – This bungalow in College Park was somewhat typical for the neighborhood. So what did Realtor Joe Newstreet dod to sell it quickly? He had it professionally staged. Designer Helen Bonello-Strauss suggested a grey paint color and a few minor fixed and improvements to tidy up the appearance. Then she gave the house a mid century modern overhaul to showcase the heritage and possibilities the property offered. The new furniture plays homage to the Jetson age without the dated look. It presented itself in a rejuvenated version of the mid century bungalow, crisp and current, clean and comfortable. What else did it need? The answer was found quickly: A buyer who wanted to immerse in the history of this desirable neighborhood close to downtown Orlando. It took only a few showings and 3 days to sell. Taking the essence of a building and to translate the architecture into a coherent design concept always reap rewards. In this College park property we see how the embrace of the mid century tradition worked to underline a design language that is so en vogue. While we don’t live on far away planets or frequent space stations, this successful staging job is proof that we, as a culture, embrace the style of the modern world, even in an older house.
