New Design style, color, and patterns are a great way to keep your home looking fresh and current and also adds appeal to potential home buyers when you’re selling your home. When staging your home to sell, here are a couple of staging tips incorporating new design trends.
Color Thread – A new color can feel like it belongs if you repeat the color in different ways throughout a room and carry it through the house, like a thread of color weaving its way through each room in small but impactful ways.
Example, start with a bold area rug in the Great Room that introduces your new color palette. Add throw pillows, a pot with a live plant, a few accessories and maybe a piece of art that also have your new colors.
As you go through the house, find at least 3 areas in each room to bring your new colors in, subtle ways. It could be as simple as a few books on a shelf with your colors, a throw across the bed. Towels in the bathroom with bath soaps. Have a recipe book on the Kitchen counter open to a delicious looking recipe with your colors, a bowl of all the same fruit in your colors.
Painting or wallpapering a feature wall in the Great Room, or Master Bedroom with an element of your new color palette can add a wow factor to any room.
Match your decor to your home’s style and price range. It goes back to knowing who your buyer is, and creating the right lifestyle. For example, you wouldn’t want to use fussy traditional furniture in a desert contemporary home. If your home is high-end, then your accessories and furniture should also look high-end.
