Have you heard of the absolutely gorgeous Scarlet Hotel in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall? Wow! It really is an amazing hotel, where nothing is too much trouble (“glass of champagne in the hot tub Madam?”) and the staff really do treat you like a cherished friend rather than a hotel guest. For example, I was blown away by the fact that there is no reception desk; just a little clue that you are not entering an ordinary hotel.
So, why am I blogging about The Scarlet Hotel? Because I want you to check out how their website really keys into our emotions. Each image just exudes relaxation, indulgence and pure luxury. The colours are sumptuous, the textures exciting and the attention to detail means that each and every image is full of atmosphere. Looking through the pictures, you feel you just have to go there.
Now look at the photographs of your home. What do they say to a viewer? Do they draw him in? Do they say “book a viewing!”? Do your images tempt and seduce or leave a viewer feeling cold and unmoved?
So, browse the gorgeous images of this wonderful hotel, and see if you feel inspired to take a leaf out of their book; can you create a special space and photography to match? If your home leaves you flat, how do you think it will make a viewer feel? Do what you need to do: splash out on some fabulous accessories and lighting, commission a home stager, book a specialist property photographer. Then send me the link and I’ll tell you if you’ve created something as special as The Scarlet.
