Sovereign Featured in Lonny Magazine!

June 15, 2010
 When the Sovereign Buckhead decided it was time to revamp their model home they knew just who to call: designer Lee Kleinhelter.  As the owner of Atlanta’s home-goods store Pieces, as well as a resident owner at the Sovereign, she was eager to put her clever direction into making the condo model radiate  with clean lines and “not too modern and not too traditional” touches. 
 
Kleinhelter breathed new life into the condo by ripping out the dull-blue carpet and centered her attention on creating depth through textures, accentuating the walls, and energizing the space with a flavorful shade of orange inspired by Hermes.  Each Sovereign condo features strong angles and uniquel nooks and she was successful in making it look anything but an average staged model.  She created a home that fuses the modern and the vintage and together permeates the warmth that every buyer craves.  “I want this home to make you feel great, chic, and super happy” she says, and it seems by the response Sovereign is receiving, she has done just that.

Staging a house to sell isn’t always easy, but Kleinhelter gives these two bits of advice:

  • The first step in preparing to sell is to move everything out.  Once the house is clutter-free, paint everything the same color to visually expand the space. 
  • Lastly, when moving the furniture back, carefully edit and leave only the essentials.  Less is more.  Leave personal mementos in storage, otherwise potential buyers may feel like they are intruding on someone else’s space.
