About Vivant Reposé
If we had to explain what Vivant Reposé is about, it will be this:
Let us answer the 5 Ws plus the How:
WHO? we are
We are a wife and a husband team. Wife is Geri and husband is Lachlan. Nice to ‘meet you’ and thanks for visiting our ‘home’.
Geri has a Diploma in Interior Design and Bachelors’s Degree in Hospitality Management. In the past, she has designed and project managed residential renovations and has styled short and long-term rentals. She also has managed a serviced apartments hotel and a specialty coffee shop, worked on international road rehabilitation projects as an office manager and … is a travel blogger (google When Woman Travels). Lachlan is an all-rounder carpenter with a Certificate III qualification and has been working in the industry for eleven years. But he also has a creative mind and is a very good project manager. He has an Advanced Diploma in Film and Screen Media. Two of the short films he has produced were screened at the Cannes Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival in 2018!
Our work and life experiences make us great problem solvers. This helps us understand the needs of our clients, communicate effectively and be flexible and creative with the services we offer.
WHAT? we are about
Vivant Reposé is our philosophy of creating gentle, serene, feel-like-a-hug home environments. The need for homes that provide a better sense of wellbeing has always been important. However, now, when technology is everywhere around us and COVID keeps us anxious and stuck at home, it is crucial.
Our aim is to achieve a sense of calm in every project we work on. In property preparation, we try to make a house feel welcoming and turn it into a relaxing yet practical space. As you know, buying a home is most often than not an emotional decision. It’s like a deciding on a partner – it’s all about how that person makes you feel! In property maintenance and renovations (residential or commercial) our goal is to take the stress out of your day. You have enough to worry about, we are here to propose a solution and deliver on the promise.
WHERE? we work
We are located in Perth, Western Australia. However, if you live further away, we are happy to help you set up your property for sale by communicating from afar. Our property preparation consultations can be done online. The only difference with our in-person consultations will be that we will use video conferencing to make the ‘visits’ and communicate with you.
WHEN? to benefit from our services
Contact us as soon as you have decided to sale your property. We can help you speed up the process by advising on the necessary work in order to make your house as attractive as possible to as many types of clients as viable. For our other services, feel free to get in touch when a need for our services arise.
WHY? to use us
For several reasons. We do prefer open communication so you can count on us being straightforward and keeping you in the loop. We won’t push you to do more than you feel like doing or have the budget for. In the end, it is your property, your decision. We are creative and our services are flexible. That means we will find a solution whatever your problem is.
HOW? we will help you
We have chosen to focus on what others don’t like doing. What’s that? Well, dealing with complicated situations.
This is why we would love to help you make your OCCUPIED home ready for sale. That might include assisting you in decluttering the space, fixing up broken stuff, small carpentry jobs; residential painting (no matter how small or big is the scope); consultation, supervising the whole project (like electrical, gardening etc); partial home staging (we won’t refuse to do the full home staging if you insist tho), or digitally staging your empty room. Whatever you need, just let us know. And if you don’t know what you need – that’s a no-brainer either! This is why we do consultations and love chatting with our clients – to figure this out together.
One last thing. Why ‘property preparation’ services?
Every house is different and has individual needs when it comes to improvements. Same as every person, couple, a family has different requirements for the space they occupy. We want to make it easier for you to get your property ready for sale, rent… or even living.
This is why, instead of ‘home staging’, we call our services ‘property preparation’. We approach the whole ‘preparation’ thing holistically and will grow and adapt, on the go, depending on what you need us to do.
