Color Arrest: Picking the right wall color

During Special Holiday Time with My Daughter

During Special Holiday Time with My Daughter

Happy New Year! I hope your entire holiday season was as special as mine was. This shot was taken by my daughter as we enjoyed our time off together as a family. Perhaps you also had the opportunity to make special memories with the important people in your life, as we did the day this shot was taken. In whatever ways are meaningful to you and those you love.

As we move into 2018, I wanted to open the month with a brand new blog post, telling you about a brand new completed project.

We had to arrest this Master Bedroom wall color before the house could be staged and listed on the market. Bright colors are nice for kids' bedrooms but, when it comes to the Master Bedroom we highly recommend calm color tones. Remember, the Master Bedroom is the most important bedroom when selling your home. This room should evoke tranquility & peace. For this project we went with Sherwin Williams #7012 Creamy. It's a great neutral that goes with any design style. You were wondering about those drapes? Yep they are too short. You guessed right: they forgot to measure for the correct length.

START FROM SCRATCH

Paint the room in the selected color. Remove old drapery panels, and let's get started with staging this room for potential buyers, so they can fall in love and make an offer. Based on the size of this room, we went with a King Size Bed. We had enough room to add a mini seating area, and YAY we bought some ready-made light grey linen drapery panels in the correct length, 95". HomeGoods came to the rescue; they have the best prices and selections for drapery panels. Our GoTo for rental furniture is CORT Furnishings. You don't need to over-stage a room. You just need enough furniture to show the "livability" of the space.  Buyers only know what they see, not what it's going to be.

FINISHING DETAILS

We love using white bedding for a fresh updated look, and lots of pillows are a must. Accent pillows are used for a pop of color.  Pillows with different colors and textures also soften a look to a room, and add personality. We now have a finished look that will appeal to potential  buyers. If you need help pulling it together, we can help. Contact Captiva Design at 954.205.6555. We like talking to our customers!
