Looking for some staging and design tips? Today’s blog is for you.
So many of us are spending more time at home these days, and a lot of my conversations with homeowners involve staging and design, whether they’re preparing their home to sell or want to give it a quick refresh.
Whether you’re preparing your home to sell or are looking to upgrade it, the key driver of your home’s styling should be how you want to feel in your finished space. Looks are important, but successful styling is all about how something makes you feel. More than anything, the inside of your house needs to set a mood and impact your emotions. My stagers and I style every house I sell with this in mind. For me, the best way to sell a home is to make people feel good the moment they step through its doors.
To get started, take a look at the architectural style of your home. Are there any aspects you want to play up and create a feeling from? Next, think of places that you love and write them down; for example, I recently heard someone say that her main source of inspiration comes from vacations. She loves the feeling of being on vacation; it’s an escape from her daily grind. She wants to feel relaxed in her space, and it’s inspired by the places she’s stayed.
Now, you don’t have to travel to be inspired. There are so many beautiful images online that you can get all the ideas you need from playing around a bit on Pinterest or Google. Collect some images you love! It’s so important to start with this step, and I can help you if you want to have some fun with it.
I have some questions I’ve put together that can help you brainstorm and pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for. Just text or email me and I’ll send you this questionnaire. Once you’re laser-focused on this, it’s time to start on your vision board.
If you’d like some tips on how to do that, stay tuned for my next video. I also invite you to reach out to me today so we can start brainstorming. I look forward to hearing from you.
