This is especially true in the darker months of the year – particularly in the Pacific Northwest’s many cloudy days. Buyers want to imagine themselves curling up next to a sunny window, cuddled up on a chair under warm light or entertaining in their kitchen under pendant lights. How do you compensate, if your home is not bathed in sun, for it’s most important photo shoot? Here are some design tricks:
White walls with white trim, with possibly a white piece of furniture looks clean, bright and more open.
Good design integrates several types of lighting –
general/ceiling light, task lighting, and accent lighting.
Placing a mirror near a window reflects light and creates visual interest. It also can make a room appear bigger.
Add a punch of color to give a room a lift. Bright pillows or other accents can make a room pop without being a negative distraction.
