Home staging entails flair and creativity, but it is also very much strategic, and calculated. As a rule of thumb, the staging has to appeal to the highest number of potential buyers within its demographic.
To achieve this look, home stagers look to popular (and often neutral) color schemes that have proven to reel in buyer interest. Look to these tried-and-tested color combinations to cobble together that picture-perfect home for your clients.
White and Black with Wood
For homes with white walls, wooden floors, and other accents and trimmings made of wood, a simple, monochromatic assemblage of black and white can turn the space into a paragon of modern minimalism. And here's the cherry on top: indoor greenery (symmetrical shrubs and trees, for instance) add a pop of color and life.
Cream and Brown with Wood
For a warmer touch and a cozier atmosphere, use creams and browns with wood. The overall look spells classic, comfy, and homey. Perfect for living areas or family homes.
Gray, White, and Brown
A perfect trio for more masculine spaces like a modern bachelor's pad. The browns serve as a warm counterpoint to soften the neutral grays and whites. Use potted plants or yellow lamps and scones as accents.
Cream, Blue, and Gray
Go for a cozy, comfy look: a light grayish blue paired with cream or beige and anchored by a dark gray, or a warm brownish gray, like taupe. The combination is ideal for living rooms and bedrooms.
Red, Beige, and Brown
Here's something a bit further on the bold end of the spectrum: using red as accents among beige and brown walls, floors, and furnishings. Red can also be paired with light wood, white and off-white colors, and darker browns. Its vivacity adds spice to any space.
