This living room goes from drab to fab with a paint color change, and brightening with a fan light kit, and removing window valances blocking the natural light.
My first impression of this living room was most likely the same as other potential buyers, dark and a little dreary. Without furnishings to provide an anchor to the room, and light to brighten, and a neutral color to highlight the walls, the living room was destined to be forgettable, not what you want when selling.
A homeowner decorator color can be perfect for living, but a hindrance for selling. Although the green was a current decorator color choice, a lighter color was mandatory to lighten and brighten the walls. Light and bright makes you money in a sale!
I am borrowing a saying I heard, "decorating is optional; staging is mandatory!" This living room is a great example of the necessity to stage to sell!
A before photo is not available. It was simply a dark, empty room.
Here is the photo that will help sell this home with fresh paint, bright, neutral paint, and inviting furniture and decor arrangement.
