Staging a Home with Color
If you are a regular to my blog, you know that I like to post free or low cost staging tips. The biggest reason for this was that I staged (and sold) my own home this past spring, and shared many of the choices we made--from no cost to high cost. However, a post yesterday by Nestor & Katerina Gasset made me think about the need for a different "box of crayons" in different parts of the country.
While some people might like Key Lime Green, it is not necessarily a color that you would pick when painting a room for sale in Connecticut; but the new build that was featured in Lone Pine Estate For Sale in Delray Beach used this color in one room and a bath to great effect in a Florida home. In an adobe home in Arizona or New Mexico, you would not hesitate to use turquoise and purple--again not colors that you would readily grab in Connecticut.
Of course if you are painting a home to live in, you can pick the colors that please YOU, but when you are painting a home to sell, you need to pick the colors that please the largest number of potential buyers.
