The home interiors trade often follows the fashion industry for inspired new, color trends. Exciting, but not always appropriate when selling your home and reaching the broadest demographic. However, every wall shouldn't be "builder beige", either. On the contrary, all those plain, vanilla houses leave buyers wanting something less generic and more appealing. Showcase your home by creating a warm, inviting environment with current paint colors.
Sherwin-Williams colormix(TM) 2012 takes its cues from Mother Earth with a monochromatic palette. Instead of white walls, try Bosc Pear SW6390, Believable Buff SW6120 and Relic Bronze SW6132. By changing up the hue's intensity, your home will move from "forgettable" to "irresistible".
Benjamin-Moore suggests subtle color such as Barley 199, Stone House 1039, and Providence Olive from their Historical Collection-98.
|Fall 2011 - powder sand, indian river, jojoba|
|Covington Blue adds immediate impact|
A few of my personal favorites are: Lemongrass SW7732,
Aqua-Sphere SW7613, Koi Pond SW7727, Latte SW6108 and Covington Blue BM-HC138.
Always consider the elements in your room such as furniture, rugs, artwork, stone/brick fireplace, countertops, flooring as well as the view outside when making your selections. Each play a role in painting a cohesive palette that will visually delight your buyer.
If in doubt, please consult a professional Home Stager such as those @ Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). Many are trained and certified in color consulting and would be happy to color your home SOLD.
