Blue Lotus Home Designs by Isabelle Richard

Asheville Interior Design

Asheville interior design by Blue Lotus Home Designs (BLHD), initially began as a home staging company certified by Home Staging Resources out of Los Angeles, to service the local real estate seller's market. Many real estate professionals reached out to BLHD in need of this service. With staging properties prior to selling, realtors and their clients experience positive feedback from the field, selling for full asking price in the shortest amount of time, sometimes producing multiple offers. When Blue Lotus Home Designs, owner-founder, Isabelle Richard turns a run down, empty house into a luxurious, artistically curated home,  buyers immediately connect and envision themselves in that lifestyle captivating them to put in their offer. It has been documented that deals go smoother, and properties maintain their full value with professional staging. 

Most of us cannot begin to imagine as buyers how our furniture will look when entering an empty space; especially in an open floor plan! But Asheville interior design professional, Isabelle Richard, has proven these staged home sale results time after time, sale after sale, with her creative acumen. This inspired Blue Lotus Home Designs' ‘property whisperer’ , Isabelle Richard, to create innovative and low budget, cosmetic renovations to help strengthen the appeal and increase home value even more so. For instance, the choices of paint color, however subtle, bring a sense of elegance and brighten up a tired home.

When Isabelle shows her clients her new vision with a re-design, update or remodel for resale or otherwise, her clients are immediately "on board" to make the changes! When the WOW factor is in place and the transformation completed before selling their home, her clients understand that a small investment will bring a greater return in their sale.

Isabelle helps her clients feel ready for their transition with a plan to declutter, remove excess amounts of furniture, and box up personal items for their move. This helps the home owner emotionally detach and move forward to create a welcoming home to a new buyer. The home now becomes a house and simply their greatest asset. Once this is done, Isabelle stages and implements emotional visual vignettes as connecting points in each room to help a buyer feel drawn to living there.Asheville Interior Design by Isabelle Richard
