When STAGING A HOME FOR SALE, FRESH GREENERY, FRESH FLOWERS,and FRESH FRUIT ADD a sense of LIFE AND NEWNESS AND COLOR TO THE HOME. For the home seller, there is no faster OR less expensive way to add the touch of luxury.
The training from the Barb Schwarz organization at www.stagedhomes.com suggests to look to the outdoors, to what can be brought indoors to add fresh, to add green, to add life and to "bring the outdoors in."
In the dead of winter, it can be that greenery may be scarce; however not so in Spring. In Abilene the redbud trees are blooming all up and down Sayles Boulevard, the oldest street in Abilene. The flowers are blooming on every street corner now at corner grocery (HEB) and home stores alike (LOWES) and HOME DEPOT)
A favorite fresh flower are white tulips. Fresh white flowers in a red vase will make any room sing with joy.
A favorite dining room look that anybody can pull off. If I can do it, it you can, too. Take three to five glass cylinder vases the ones about one inch diameter across, just big enough for one flower. and place ONE white flower in each cylinder (MY favorite is fresh tulips) and arrange on the dining table. A large rectangular table would need three to five vases arranged in a line. A smaller table would probably look fine with three. For a round table, place the glass cylinders in a circle. Of course a color that accents the dining room will work. I like white because it is neutral and adds luxury, is so fresh and bright and goes with everything! White tulips, white roses, white carnations would also work. I just discovered that one white carnation in a little black oriental vase looked sensational on a kitchen counter next to a staging vignette.
Don't get me wrong. I still use silk plants, not much choice in a vacant home, because the sad truth is fresh flowers do fade, but in an occupied home, tending the flowers is one of the joys of selling. The home owner has the perfect excuse to buy FRESH to help the HOME Sell!!!
That is what flowers and greenery do, they bring in that extra glamour, that living element, and make your staging that more glamourous.
Go green with FRESH this Spring. Go outdoors and see what can be brought in!
