“Home Plus Style styled my four-bedroom heritage cottage in West Hobart. After seeing the beautiful job they did, the real estate agent decided we should ask for an extra $50K on top of the price she'd initially expected. The house sold at its first weekend and was only on the market for four days - and I'm certain that that had a lot to do with Alex and Meg's beautiful styling.
Their attention to detail was amazing. I don't know a lot about home styling but I really appreciated that they made the house look like a home. It didn't have that sterile, clinical feel of a lot of home styling, where you think the stylists bought everything from the same shop. It felt like every piece of furniture, every vase, every cushion had been hand-chosen to fit the aesthetic of the home. It was quite an idiosyncratic home with a lot of smaller rooms which must have posed a challenge to style, but they made each room look bigger and more inviting. I almost wanted to buy it myself when I walked through!!
Thank you so much Alex and Meg for your wonderful work. I will definitely be recommending you to any friends who need their homes styled.”Frances, West Hobart

“Home + Style were engaged to style our home in New Town after strong recommendations from our Real Estate agent. We didn’t know a lot about how it worked or even IF it worked but on the agent’s advice we went ahead.
I had thought I would have to make decisions about what I wanted and where but Meg and Alex made it all so easy by showing me they knew the market for our house and how best to configure it for that market. Happily, I left it to them. I LOVED the furniture, fabrics, art work and flowers which all combined to show how easy and elegant living in our home could be! I was so thrilled and the art work was just incredible with genuine pieces from well-known Tasmanian and Australian artists. The fresh flowers were just extraordinary and set off the whole look.
We had bigger groups of viewers through and lots of great feedback and were sold for tens of thousands over our top hoped for price within 5 weeks. I really credit Home + Style with making this difference and would never sell without using them again. It really is a no brainer!”Kate, South Hobart
“Hi Meg and Alex, we arrived at the house yesterday wanting to view the inside before open day today. Our daughters had already been inside & were delightfully stunned with your style & transformation of the house. We were equally excited and very thankful for your beautiful design, eye for detail and continuity of style throughout the house.
By last night we had 6 very favourable offers before open day. We sold the property today unconditionally. Thanks so much.”Judy & Geoff, Sandy Bay
“Dear Meg, I wanted to put pen to paper and thank you very much for your wonderful work on the property at 691 Sandy Bay Road in Sandy Bay. This was a vacant home, which was potentially going to be a challenge to market – but I have to say you completely transformed it. Your communication both with us and directly with the Vendor was exceptional, and you delivered both on time and on budget.
The reaction to our early Inspections and during the first Open Home was fantastic, and I am delighted to say that we have now secured a Contract at a great price – and all within a week of first exposing the Property. And all this in what is commonly considered a tough Market!
Meg Clarke does so much more that style and furnish a house for sale. She understands what makes a home: the atmosphere, the little touches that bring the feeling of comfort. She has the ability to identify the good points of each room, and the confidence to let them simply speak for themselves, if necessary. This is not just a matter of putting furniture in a room.
It takes flair and a feeling of space and colour, and most importantly, an understanding of the idea of a house as a home.
We were lucky our house sold quickly, but we were also lucky we found Meg Clarke and Home Plus Style.”E Bennett, Sandy Bay
“With settlement pending for this property I want you to know how much I appreciated your staging and style efforts for the sale of this property.
Your choice of furnishings and colours was very successful, even the vendor family members were impressed to see their former home reborn so simply! And to be greeted by the fragrance of fresh cut flowers before each open home showing, lifted my spirits too.
Congratulations Meg on a job well done. It has been a pleasure to work with a thoroughly professional business like yours where things happened on time and with a minimum of fuss and bother. I look forward to the next opportunity to use your services. Well done.”Jim Playsted
“Meg and Alex, Thank you to you both for your wonderful achievements at our property in Duke St, Sandy Bay.
‘What is it about a rather quaint property that you fall in love with despite its warts and all, and then proceed to absolutely gut it to create something else entirely, and then pass it on to another hopefully happy owner?
By that stage I had become slightly indifferent about the old girl but marketing an empty property was not an option and suggested a lack of soul on my part. So in came Meg and Alex to create a transformation almost eclectic mix of furnishings, colours, textures …. inviting spaces and threads of charm that led the eye through the whole house.
As one who can only admire the keen eye of another, the nous in presenting a medley of appealing parts and creating a whole package I can only say thank you – I almost wanted to cancel the sale!!
P.S. Loved the feel Meg expressed for the house and her understanding of how it could be, while at the same time acknowledging mine.’ Thank you once again.”Colleen Howell
“What won me over with Home Plus Style’s service, was how quickly things came together from the moment I rang. Meg asked for our input into the styling of the house and immediately captured the right look to play up the features of the interior.
The final look was contemporary yet a little quirky, perfect for the age of the house, and the buyers we were trying to attract. Meg more or less became part of a makeover team we had and kept in touch regularly as we prepared the house for sale, providing ideas for what items needed the most attention.
Based on her advice we ended up preventing a renovation budget blowout by focusing our efforts to what was most important.
The fact that Meg was there before each Open Home checking final presentation and installing fresh flowers around the house was very reassuring. Nothing was being left to chance. Obviously it worked because the first Open Home on the Friday generated a great amount of interest, and resulted in a sale on the Monday. Meg was an absolute delight to work with, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Meg Clarke and Home Plus Style to anyone.”Erin Grey
