PROPERTY listings usually jump substantially in Spring, so how do you make your property standout against the crowded pack?
Well according to stylist Justine Wilson of Vault Interiors, it’s not that hard to make your home the one that potential buyers remember the most and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
“A few little changes to the presentation of a property can mean the difference between a mediocre result and a record-breaking sale,’’ she said.
Her tips for styling are:
Get the basics right
“Declutter your space to create a clean platform,’’ she said.
Remove excess furniture from living areas and think about rearranging chairs to make the most of nice views.
Spring blooms can make a big first impression and aren’t expensive. The trick according to Ms Wilson is to play with heights and textures of vases and fill them with beautiful flowers until it looks balanced.
On trend colours for vases this season are blue or grey hues.
Embrace natural light
Let natural light filter through your home. Change heavy thick curtains for sheer fabrics, linens, light cotton and synthetic curtains. Also place your flower arrangements in front of mirrors to add some dramatic reflections throughout the house.
Ms Wilson said there was a big shift from roller blinds and timber shutters to white plantation shutters and semi sheer blinds.
Add lush greenery
“Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings,’’ Ms Wilson said.
“Bring the lushness of the great outdoors inside your home by introducing bunches of greenery to draw the eye and create a focal point in any room.
Heavy throws should be tucked away after winter.
“Now is time to introduce new cushions to refresh your living zone with fresh patterned fabric or bright colours.’’
Citrus scented candles can offer a zesty and fresh aroma.
“Winter interiors can trap unpleasant odours so if you are looking to list your home on the market ensure it looks and smells delightful.
