When staging homes for sale, sometimes we’re greeted with the colours of the rainbow when we walk through the front door. One wall might be pink, another yellow and another green. These coloured walls give a home a unique personality, a talking point if you will. It can make a house stand out from others because it’s bold and different. But, coloured walls present a challenge when it comes to adding in furniture and decor, and without engaging the help of professionals this can be a daunting process. This is where home staging comes in!
Believe it or not, quirky homes benefit the most from home staging, as stylists help to bring in the right furnishings and accessories for the space in order to highlight the home’s best features and appeal to more homebuyers. When styled correctly, coloured walls can look gorgeous and really add a wow factor to a home, allowing potential buyers to picture themselves living in the space. So, how do we style a room so it complements the colours instead of clashing with them?
Recently, we were tasked to stage a four bedroom house in the South-Western Brisbane suburb of Oxley where every room had different coloured walls. Silvana was the lead stylist for this install and she did a beautiful job of seamlessly integrating furniture and decor into each room in a way that worked perfectly with the pre-existing colours. Let’s explore her design choices so you can replicate her approach in your home to achieve beautifully styled bold coloured rooms.
8 Muirlea Street in Oxley is full of fun and funky walls. From a pink living room, to a bedroom with yellow walls, an office with cheetah print wallpaper and everything in between, this house had it all! When it came to staging the home, there were two ways Silvana could have gone about it – using neutrals or playing with the colours.
