"One color everywhere?", the seller asks

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Integrity NW 40378289

It's best, we say, to use universal color throughout the home when selling. 

 Many sellers balk at the idea.  After all their living space up until I walked in is a different color in every room.  Now here is something to try with your next wall color project. 

 I am using a few of the SW colors from their new mini-fan book.  They are not yet set up in families of color.  In other words they are not strips of 6 colors all in the same family.  I have been working with manual blends to arrive at the best formula to lighten and darken your favorite staging color for just a very slight variation.  Just have SW add 25% or remove 25% of the color to arrive at wonderful variations of your favorite staging color.  Your clients will love this too.  By adding 25% the color deepens and so on.  Happy staging.  Jeanne

Getting them to paint it is the hard part.

I am a color consultant for Benjamin Moore so haven't tried SW often. However a fan book sounds easier that my 2 cases of colors.

I usually suggest the same idea you are using.  Using a variant of the same shade throughout (especially in smaller homes).
