Home Staging Trick: Book in Bloom

You’ve probably heard this before: Beauty is in the details. This is definitely true in home design and staging. The accessories pull the room together and add those little touches that truly make a house feel like a home. Here’s a cool tip that comes from one of our MHM team members, Heather Isaac:

Open up an old book halfway and fold inward two pages from the right and two pages from the left. You’ll be left with this beautiful (yet very simple and inexpensive!) design element that you can place on a coffee table, next to a bed, or even on an ottoman beside a comfy chair.

Follow the Red Door

Nothing grabs your attention like the color RED. That’s why (when used smartly) red can be a fantastic design element, even in staging. Yes, it IS best to use neutral color palettes when staging a home for sale, but occasionally that right pop of red is just enough to grab someone’s attention. Examples: A pillow, a piece of art, a basket of apples on the kitchen counter, or even…

A red front door! Really catches your eye, doesn’t it? It’s not for every property, but sometimes it’s that extra something that can really make a home stand out. What is your favorite way to use the color RED? Let me know in the comments!
