ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT INTERIOR DESIGN? Then this is your perfect business!



The COLOUR MAGIC INTERIOR DESIGN warehouse, located in Mornington, is filled with approximately 10 house-loads of furniture plus a Ford Transit Van

Tertiary qualifications are not a requirement to be a Home Stager. If you have good spatial awareness, a sense of light & colour, knowledge of the latest ideas & trends and appreciation of different styles of homes .. then you'll be good at this job!!

People skills are helpful to guide vendors through the sales process, and organisational skills allow the warehouse to run smoothly.

The working hours of a staging job are usually within the range of 9am-6pm on any day of the week, so its easy to plan around other commitments.

The warehouse in the Mornington Industrial Park has no lease. It operates as ongoing monthly rental ($953) and the owners are very flexible.

All our staging assistants are sub-contractors, paid by the hour @ $25 p/hour, and very reliable with great ideas and expertise.

The success of this business has come from having a good working relationship with 14 local estate agents. Patience and good people skills have also been helpful in guiding vendors through the selling process, plus a good quoting system and strong sense of reliability.

Colour Magic Interior Design began in 2002, and has 3 components:
Interior Design
Home Staging
Furniture Sales.
The current owner needs to be in the UK for several months this year due to her sick father. The interior design and furniture sales parts of the business can be managed whilst the owner is away, but the home staging is difficult to organise from overseas so she is selling the furniture & van, and will remove staging from the website.

With regards to costing .. the value of the furniture is over $100k, comprising approx. 10 house-loads, including some state-of-the-art pieces and also some quirky & unusual designer pieces. The pricing has taken into consideration the quality and age of the furniture. Some pieces are brand new in their packaging and other pieces have been used on several staging jobs. The price has been REDUCED TO SELL @ $60k for the furniture with $5k added for the Ford Transit Van .. but we're taking offers!

Staging clients are situated throughout the Peninsula and up towards the city, and properties vary. Some properties are brand new & contemporary, having not yet been occupied, so need help with achieving the 'lived in' feel. Rental properties often have tenants which have moved out, and these usually need cleaning up, and the rooms re-purposing. Deceased estates often have old-fashioned furniture, and the entire feeling of the house needs to be lifted & brought into this century with contemporary furniture. And farm houses require eclectic pieces to bring their many conflicting features together, giving unity and a sense of belonging to these wonderful feature homes.

Total cost of $65k includes the following services which will help new business owners to get started:

Introduction to 14 Estate Agent contacts who have worked with Colour Magic often;
Passing on any leads which come organically from interior design clients;
Introduction to Business Networking International (BNI) group;
Completion of an "introduction to quoting" explanatory hand-over;
Introduction to current sub-contractors, who are reliable and charge $25 p/h;
Passing forward of any staging enquiries from friends & family of past clients;
Introduction to 3 removalist companies who have worked regularly with Colour Magic.
