Ways To Bring Happiness Into Your Home

Happy Thursday!

With one month already behind us, February is a good month to really start tackling the “what to do list” for the home. Here are a few things you can do right now to make your home a happy place.

Love your plants. Studies have proven that house plants improve productivity, concentration, reduce stress levels and boost your mood.

Avoid heavy drapes that block all light. Natural light increases endorphins and serotonin. Studies have also shown that workers in sunlit areas are more productive than workers without exposure to natural light.

Your home should reflect your personality and style, which in turn makes us feel happy. Show off your kids artwork or pottery. Style your home with colours that put a smile on your face.

A cluttered home can leave you feeling stressed. Finding items in clutter can be a frustrating challenge. It is also difficult to clean when there is too much “stuff ” lying around. This is a great month to start decluttering room by room.

Ten Staging Tips for Selling During the Holidays

Holiday Staging tips!

While it may be the holidays for many, it may also be the time serious buyers are searching for their perfect home.  If you are thinking about selling, here are ten staging tips for selling during the holidays.

Safety first- Make sure your walkway and steps are safe for potential buyers. Shovel snow and make sure the walkway is salted for safety.

Light the way- Make sure exterior lighting is in working order. Keep in mind that buyers may want to view the property during evening hours so make sure the walkway is lit.

Clean interior- Cleaning before selling is a must. Rooms should be sparkling clean and tidy. Bathrooms and kitchens should look spotless.

Not too much- Yes, you can still decorate but keep things to a minimal. Buyers want to see the home, not all the decorations. A few tastefully placed holiday decorations go a long way!

Keep pets away- While you may love your four legged friend not all buyers are comfortable with pets. It is best to not have pets in the home when showing the property.

No scent is best- Ginger nutmeg, apple spice, and vanilla are all amazing scents but not all buyers will agree. No scent is best when selling.  Make sure your property appeals to all potential buyers.

Hire a professional stager- A professional stager will not only make recommendations on the best way to prepare your property for sale but also make recommendations on how to accentuate the best features of the home.

Clean and clear the front entrance- Make sure there is enough room for wet boots. Buyers want to be able to take off their boots with ease. Make sure your front entrance is clutter free.

Create a cozy vibe- This is the perfect time to stage the home with throw blankets and comfy pillows. Creating a cozy vibe allows potential buyers to visualize themselves in the space. Who wouldn’t want to wrap themselves in a blanket and sit near the fireplace?

Staging tip ten is consider fresh flowers- Consider placing fresh flowers for photos. They won’t last forever but look beautiful in photos and a few fresh cut flowers won’t break the bank.

Happy Vibes!

Happy Tuesday!

This space gives me happy vibes. With everything going on this year I feel this staging is fresh, pretty and calm looking. Perfect for times like this. The client also wanted a soft palette. Here are a few pics on how we staged for selling.

Benjamin Moore Colour Of The Year 2021

Benjamin Moore’s Colour Of The Year for 2021 is Aegean Teal. This colour really does make me want to pick up a roller and start painting.

Aegean Teal is a combination of blue, teal, and gray. It is soothing and will work well as an accent wall or even a study. With more people working from home this may be the perfect colour!

Dulux O’keefe Grey

Happy Monday!

Here are a few photos of our latest vacant showcasing. The walls needed some work as well. We bought paint to match the existing colour from Dulux. O’keefe Grey is a warm grey but it is really more like a greige. While it is a mix of gray and beige watch out for the undertones! You will definitely see pink undertones with a lot of light.

It is a pretty colour and I think pairs well with soft colours as well. Here are a few pics!
