Simple Tricks for Staging and Styling

This week I’ve been staging for sale an apartment in W1.  The interiors of this 2 bed flat where quite mono tone in taupe and brown with red accents.    I added lighter more modern hues and changed up some of the heavy furniture for slimmer lighter pieces to create more space, plus I added interest by mixing up metal, glass and mirror, whereas before all the furniture was in the same wood as the built-ins.

For an extra splash of colour I filled the walls with quirky prints and canvases.  Artwork plays a huge part in an interior and this property had very little.  As you can see the bedroom is completely transformed with the yellow abstract piece.     It’s important to install furniture and accessories which are the right scale for the room.  A large space can take bold statement pieces.   And don’t forget to display your accessories in a pleasing way, here I rearranged the book shelves and bought new small styling items to give the property a well curated finish.  I also used plenty of cushions and pillows on the beds to create a sumptuous, cosy feel.

When staging for sale don’t scrimp too much on the quality of the furnishings and accessories as these need to reflect the price of the property and convey that luxury lifestyle feel to a potential buyer.  It takes time to gather a workable collection of styling props but its certainly worth the investment.
