Sheron Cardin's Input...

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

4 Simple Decorating Tricks To Get That High End Look!

High end decorating is always a dream come true for the decorator and client alike. But what if you are selling an average track house and you want to get that high end look?

4 simple tricks to the trade for that high end look.

  1. Make space: Most people have everything they own in view. For some reason it makes them feel more prosperous. Big mistake! One of the processes of home staging is the decluttering process. I cannot stress the importance of clutter free spaces. Unless the wealthy homeowner is an eccentric, you will see purposefully place art and accessories that are beautiful to look at.
  2. Room identities: Each room in the home needs to make sense. Make sure that the catch-all rooms are emptied and an identity assigned to it be it hobby room or home office.
  3. Large oversized wall hangings: Be it tapestries or modern art, keep it large! If you have a collection of small fruit prints, clump them together to make on large square or rectangle. Remove small isolated pictures and photos if they cannot be grouped. Blank walls help traffic flow.
  4. Area rugs: Update your shared spaces with area rugs. Group your conversation seating onto the rug and add fresh flowers and sofa pillows in a color pulled from the area rug.
