Hide CaptionShow CaptionRearranging the furniture and building custom wall shelving opens up the space tremendously.
Before, this room’s floor-to-ceiling windows were blocked by oversize furniture. Now, potential buyers can easily get to the windows to take in the beautiful view. The stylish built-in cabinet and shelves give the room a lot of storage and set it apart from other units that are on the market.

The spare bedroom (not shown) used to be the gathering spot for excess furniture. Now it is filled with coordinating furniture, a custom-made headboard and accessories that are all highlighted by a warm new paint color. Elegant draperies highlight the city view and let in lots of natural light.
