Maine Real Estate Staging: What to do with a modern loft?

 What do you do with a loft in downtown Portland that:
Has gorgeous views...

A building with a cool modern vibe...
 but potential buyers don't know how to use the space?
Open floor plans are both a blessing a curse. I love to live in them, but it can be hard to help people see the potential. So Fiore Interiors staged the loft with more than just "stuff". In a space like this, light and space are actual design elements.

Original art from local artists lends authenticity to the space and to the experience.

So much usable square footage and sunlight for DAYS.
I didn't feel that I should stage every inch of the space. On area could be transformed into an office, art studio, or add a wall and create a second bedroom. The possibilities are endless. So I staged it as an art studio to help show the size and potential. Art: art: Pier #2, Freddy Silva via VOX Photographs

And...original art by ME. No, it is not a new calling. I literally needed a custom color for a piece of art and knew I would not find it ready made. So I had some fun, and then used a blow dryer to get it dry in time to install! 
Sneak peek at the bedroom area!

As always, thank you to Michael Berube, my fantastic real estate photographer.
