Sometimes I get asked about the difference between home staging and interior design. In home staging, we make rooms appeal to the masses, whereas in interior designing, the designer is choosing items specifically for a particular person or demographic.
Here are several examples of interior design:
Notice the turquoise draperies, pillows, and accents. This color is specific to a particular person, rather than for the majority.
The turquoise color thread is carried over to the dining room across from the parlor.
The family room uses the lime green as a complementary color to the turquoise. The green sofa and chair matches the wall paint exactly. Again, this color is specific to a particular demographic.
Now, some examples of home staging:
The colors are more neutral, the furniture is understated, yet the accessories bring in some color and warmth. Most people will say, “I could live here.”
The goal of a home stager is to make an emotional connection to the house. Doesn’t a game of Scrabble evoke an emotional response?
