We used Wendy’s home staging to help us style our house for sale. We found her to be professional, sensitive and thoroughly expert in the look to be achieved. We were delighted with the results.
I have no hesitation in recommending Wendy to anyone wanting to refresh or renew the style of their home interior.

I was a skeptic, but was very impressed with Wendy’s before and after portfolio, so employed her on the proviso she use what we had, as funds were very limited. Against many hurdles Wendy was very professional and persistent, and didn’t give up. She worked with the limited resources we had to make our home look fresh and inviting. I could never have done it myself.
The photos came out beautifully which means she did her job excellently, as the people came!!! Our house was sold at the first open house. I am very grateful to Wendy and would recommend her services.

Wendy helped me to style my house before I put it on the market for sale and she made the process extremely easy and cost effective. Wendy was very efficient and was always available (sometimes at short notice) to assist me with the styling process and was more than willing to help me with every facet of the process from choosing paint colours to last minute details before the professional photographs. Wendy’s warm and friendly manner made me feel at ease in making decisions and trusting her sense of style and judgement. The transformation Wendy made in my home was truly amazing, she created an inviting and beautiful house to present to buyers. I was extremely impressed with Wendy’s talents and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her styling to others.

We recently sold our property in Balmoral, Queensland. I had never enlisted the assistance of a Stylist before for any of my properties and I must admit I was very skeptical as to how ‘styling’ would improve the prospects for selling. Wendy was amazing, she totally changed the look of our home and was happy to work within our budget using what furniture we had available as well as advising us on some small purchases. The house looked totally different once we were finished, she inspired us all. I knew that when I left the house it was beautiful and showing off its unique features and character, showing people what a lovely home it was. Our end result, a higher price than three other agents had been able to achieve in the previous 22 months, a very happy vendor and a very happy buyer. I have no hesitation in recommending Wendy highly and rest assured, my next sale I will be definitely calling on her expertise again.

I have had the pleasure of having Wendy style my home, firstly with the concept of selling my townhouse, then having my plans change mid-styling, finish of with my boys and myself remaining in my townhouse. Wendy’s skill, ability and professionalism enabled her to adapt to my changing situation without any fuss and she knew just what to do and made me feel secure and confident every step of the way. She also made my 2 sons feel very comfortable and involved in the changes as well. I am thrilled with the changes made to my townhouse. It feels bright, refreshed, stylish and totally livable. Wendy listened to what I needed and turned those concepts, along with her wonderful style and finesse, into a reality that works and is beautiful. I would confidently recommend her to anyone.

Dear Wendy I just wanted to drop you a line to say the house has gone unconditional! The sale was within 2 weeks of being on the market and that was in direct response to the way house presented. As you said in our initial meeting, the photos of the property are often the buyers first look a the property and they looked sensational. The way the house transformed with your touch was magical and looked a million dollars. I knew having the house styled would be an advantage but I didn’t realise it would transform the property from a nice house to a ‘must have’ executive house. For all prospective clients who are thinking about using the Wendy’s service I’ve got to say ‘Go with all the suggestions and although it is pushing yourself into uncharted territory the effort is worth it, as the results are outstanding’. I would thoroughly recommend Wendy Lacey from Colour Sense & Style for all your styling needs.

Thank you so much for all your help with styling and staging of my clients property. Your advice and suggestions made were most helpful. I am delighted to say that it went under contract within 2 weeks, we saw over 30 groups through and we achieved a premium price for my clients. They were thrilled with the quick sale and results achieved. This property photographed so elegantly that the newspaper chose to use it as the ‘Home of the Week’ and placed it on the front page of the local paper, which I am sure increased the buyer activity on the property. I look forward to working with you again and will be referring my clients.

Wendy’s styling and colour advice on our house was invaluable. We had a very tight time frame, but Wendy’s organised and dedicated approach enabled us to meet our deadline with ease. The results were amazing; Wendy worked with our existing furniture with a few additions to achieve a warm, modern and inviting house. The photos looked fantastic and our house was under contract within two weeks! We consider Wendy’s property styling advice a wise investment, and truly believe that it helped us achieve the best possible result for our property. We would thoroughly recommend Wendy’s services, and will be seeking her advice to style our new home!

Thanks to the ‘magic’ you performed with styling the home, there was a great response from the people who turned up for the first open viewing. No fewer than 19 groups came on Saturday, with a few more on the Sunday and we had 3 potential buyers from that. By Sunday evening we had a signed contract! It has all happened so quickly – we are delighted of course! I can’t tell you how thrilled Mike and I were to see the house staged and come to life as a lovely home to be enjoyed. We will be recommending your services at every opportunity!

We’d like to thank you for the magnificent job you did for us at the above property. Apart from ensuring that the job was carried out within the time constraints that we needed to work to, your attention to detail and choice of furniture and colour schemes was outstanding. Your enthusiasm and hands on approach with all the finishing touches was exceptional. I have no doubt that this contributed to the quick sale of the property. Thank you once again and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Thank you for creating such a lovely guest room with a lovely relaxing ambiance. Having you decorate the bedroom was an enjoyable experience, I especially appreciated your hands on involvement, attention to detail and your continuous consultation on our taste and what suited our family lifestyle. The colours we chose together all work so well and look lovely. The insightful observations and ‘tips’ on what would look good and the subtle tweaks that you made, made our home look so comfortable and beautiful. Thank you for all your advice.

There is no doubt that Wendy played a significant role in the amazingly easy sale of our home which sold in 2 weeks. With consummate style and an eye for detail, Wendy coordinated an effortless rearrangement of furniture and furnishings, giving our home a refreshed and inviting atmosphere, at minimal cost. In our new home, Wendy again worked her magic with suggestions that have made an awkward living space feel like the best room in the house. I would highly recommend her to anyone selling their home or who needs help with a makeover.

We would like to thank you and express our gratitude for the exceptional input you provided in the sale of our home. By rearranging the placement of furniture, coordinating colours, suggesting very tasteful and cost effective accessories and particularly de-cluttering each space, you presented out home in the best possible light. We had approximately 50 plus viewers and all with positive comments on the presentation of our home. We believe these strategies were instrumental in achieving our desired outcome in terms of contract conditions, price and the quick sale of our home. We look forward to working with you when we are in our new home to assist us in creating an inviting home. Sincere thanks.
