When Staging your house, all neutrals can be very boring. Too much beige or taupe, or white or tan, in most instances, make it difficult for the Buyer to have any feeling for what they're seeing. Adding pops of color, such as red pillows on a sofa or a tall red vase on a table can go far in bringing the Buyer into the room.
Without the yellow flowers peeking through the faded brown of fall foliage, the eye sees nothing but ho-hum plants. You can always count on Mother Nature to strike the right balance.
