Fall-ing over colour!

17 October 2019

A crisp chill is in the air, the turning of leaves and the scent of pumpkin spice everything. We are in sweater weather!

There’s no doubt it’s a beautiful season and one of favourites, and if you’re planning on selling your home by the end of the year, you can capitalize on all the good work nature already provides when staging your home.

Accentuate the Positives When Staging Your Home this season.

You want your home to stand out when you put it on the market, so start at the curb.

To play up the fall feel outside of your home, clean up flower beds and rake any leaves off your lawn—the first thing buyers should notice is the changing colours on your trees, not the muddled dead leaves on the grass.

Add a wreath of seasonal plants on the front door for a finishing touch.

In the backyard, store away any summer items like pool floats, inflatable water slides and tiki torches. Add fall-related décor like a self-contained fire pit and warm-coloured cushions on your patio furniture to create an outdoor space perfect for chilly evenings.

You can also add a pumpkin to the front stairs, but don’t carve it up because it will spoil much faster.

Bring the Colours Indoors:

Autumn’s natural colour scheme is warm and earthy, reminiscent of cozy, fireside nights.

To bring some of that warmth inside for your open house, fill vases with red, orange and deep yellow flowers like marigolds, Sunflowers or strawflowers. Place vases in the entryway, in the master bedroom and on top of mantles to add colour throughout the house.

To make your home feel cozy and inviting, invest in throw blankets or pillows in the same shades as your floral arrangements. Place the pieces around your living room and bedroom to draw out the fall colours.
