Trending Now: Interior Ideas That Help Your Home Sell Quickly

The pandemic and our reaction to it has brought about a myriad of changes in the way we live (and work) in our homes, creating design trends that simply make life more comfortable and appealing within our walls. If you’re getting ready to sell, follow these four suggestions to create a space that new owners can picture themselves in long after you’ve handed over the keys.

Paint
Freshening up your walls or trying a new palette might just be the trick to a fabulous first impression.  Neutral and earthy paint colors have risen in popularity as we all seek to connect with nature, both outside and inside our homes.  Farrow & Ball’s renowned color expert Joa Studholme observes, “We’re looking to introduce warmer tones, which add personality and elegance while still feeling comfortable.”  There are also timeless, go-to whites favored by interior designers: Benjamin Moore’s White Dove and Sherwin-Williams’ Swiss Coffee, both of which can work on walls, trim and cabinetry to liven up any room and provide a fresh, neutral space.

Lighting
As we’ve spent more time in our homes, we’ve realized just how important good lighting is for ambiance and utility alike.  Light, bright rooms are inviting and optimal for living and working at home. Luckily, lighting options are endless, from specialty stores to 1stdibs.com to Target.  Dimmers are a great way to provide ambient lighting and help create atmosphere.

Comfort
This past year has brought the need for comfort, and it’s important to make sure your home looks cozy no matter the style.  Fleece-covered pieces inject some real character while modern shapes resonate with the decluttered style of contemporary abodes.  Lush throws, rugs and pillows are an effortless way to mix natural textures and create a restful atmosphere.

Beauty
The desirable for all things beautiful is another trend that has risen out of this unsettling time.  Seasonal flowers in a variety of containers adds elegance to every room, while hand-poured candles create wonderfully fragrant surroundings.  Now is the perfect time to refresh your walls with framed photos, prints or collected art.
