Our top decorating tips while your home is on the market:
Keep Colour Palettes Simple & Cohesive:
We recommend keeping it to a maximum of 2 main colour palettes and separate them by floor, to accentuate and complement your existing décor.
Pair gold or platinum with whites, creams or rustic wood hues and add a pop of colour like silvery blue or red.
Remember, as much as it is the holiday season, your house is still up for sale and buyers need to be able to appreciate your home more than the decorations!
Keep Decorations to a Minimum:
Instead of all the wreaths, garland swagging and crowding of decorations on every surface, focus instead on staging impact areas. The tree will be a major focal point so keep it to the simple colour palette we recommended above and let this design element be the main – if not only – holiday decoration in your living or family room.
Dress table tops with layered center pieces and add layers to your mantle (remember to keep it to groups of 3’s for balance & symmetry).
By choosing select room features to accentuate you still emphasize great room features and add warmth and welcome for your buyers without overwhelming their senses.
Be Careful with Scents:
As much as you can, try to keep scents natural as many people have allergies these days.
If you get a real Christmas tree, this is a wonderful scent to have in your home. Try some candles with simple scents like vanilla & cinnamon and stay away from scents that are traditionally heavy.
If you don’t like candles, layer in some coffee beans in your center pieces – they give a wonderful natural aroma to the air and naturally cleanse the space they are in.
