When designing or staging a home, embrace the opportunity to let your expertise shine, and create a place home buyers can spend quality time with loved ones, unwind from a hard day’s work, and something that reflects them in the best way possible. Today, we’re going to delve into the importance of color in home staging, and how it can affect not only the mood of a room, but the mood of the people inhabiting it.

 

As you decide what colors to add into a space, you have to think about the purpose of that specific room. Some questions to ask yourself include: What is the intention of the room? What emotions do you want to evoke? Who inhabits this room most?

 

Then it’s time to select the most tasteful variation of the color to add into the space.

 

 

  1. Red

Depending on the shade you choose to bring in, hues of Red are often associated with energy, joy, warmth, and sophistication. Lighter shades of red have been known to promote energy and passion, while darker shades instill a sense of sophistication.

With that being said, red is considered the most powerful color, and it is often not well received in bedrooms, or rooms where calm and relaxation are desired. Living rooms can be a great area to add corals and burnt orange hues with accent pillows, or other home decor accessories. Maroons and pure reds are better suited for a dining room, bringing about a sense of warmth and richness when paired with rustic naturally dark toned dining room furnishings.

 

 

2.   Yellow:

      Yellow is a great color to tie into a space to bring in a sense of happiness, brightness, and positivity. It’s a great way to brighten up a space that may lack natural sunlight, or is a high energy area for your family. Yellow helps to stimulate the left side of the brain, which produces creativity and deep thinking.

Yellow is a great color to incorporate into a kitchen or office. With gold being a trending accent color right now, it’s an easy variation of yellow to tie into a home office using office supplies and desk accessories. Keep in mind that yellow is the most eye catching color on the spectrum, so it’s important to limit how much you introduce into a space due to its overwhelming properties.

 

 

3.   Green:

Being the color most found in nature, green exudes feelings of harmony, growth, and vibrancy. It is a simple way to bring some of the outside, in, which creates a fresh and harmonious space for potential home buyers.

image005

Darker and more raw shades of green are a great way to bring nature into the home, both with home furnishings, and fresh plants. Plush green living room sofas and accent chairs are a unique way to bring in raw green hues into a space, while balancing it out with crisp whites to give it a modern, vibrant feel. While lighter greens, which promote calm and harmony, like mint or emerald, are great to incorporate into kids rooms. It can add a pop of color while promoting a calm atmosphere, appealing to home buyers with a young families.

 

 

4.   Blue:

Blue is most commonly connected to feelings of tranquility and relaxation. More muted blues are often associated with the ocean, which creates a serene tone in the room. Pastel blues help to brighten up a space, while lowering stress. Blue is the mostly widely accepted color, and appeals to wide range of individuals, making it a great color to stage a home with.

image007

 

Kids’ rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms are the perfect spaces to incorporate shades of blue. Bedrooms are meant for sleep and relaxation, so tying it in through accent walls, curtains, and bedding accessories will have a softening effect. You want potential home buyers to envision a space they can retreat to, so choosing a shade like dusk, is a great way to promote calm, and create an area where they can unwind from the day’s stresses. In the bathroom, pair denim shades of blue, or lighter shades, with white appliances, for a clean look that will appeal to a wide range of tastes and styles.

 

 

5.   Purple:

Purple combines the energy of red with the stability of blue, and instills a sense of luxury and royalty in a space, while also inspiring creativity. Lighter shades of purple are often brought in through fresh flowers, or used as an accent color against neutral and natural colored furnishings. With spring right around the color, lavender and orchid are shades that can really freshen and brighten up a space.

 

Purple is also a great color to bring into a hobby or office space, with its ability to inspire creativity and deep thinking. Darker shades like eggplant and plum can be brought in through desk chairs or accent chair pillows. Desk accessories, and purple accent vases with fresh plants, paired with white or natural toned furnishings, are great decor pieces that establish a professional yet creative environment.

6.   Black:

Black is a prominent color that can make a space feel both elegant, and sophisticated. Different hues can also, help to bring an industrial urban look to a space through lighter greys, silvers, and pure black accents.

image011

 

Black is a great color to incorporate into a bathroom, with a stark white contrast to create a classic and clean look that can be accessorized with an accent color of the home buyer’s choice. Blacks versatility makes it easier for potential buyers to envision making the space their own. It is also a great color to tie into an office space, to create a classic professional design, or a dining room through industrial styled lighting andpewter colored cast iron dining chairs.

 

 

7.   Brown:

Similar to green, brown is a natural color often derived and most associated with nature. Tieing browns into a space can instill a sense of warmth, comfort, and stability. Darker, more raw browns, like umber and pecan tones, can add a richness to a room, while lighter hues can create a modern, simplistic space when paired with white and lighter green shades.

image013

 

Brown is a great color to tie into a living room with natural colored coffee tables, entertainment centers, and leather sofas. Dining rooms are also a great place to introduce shades of brown through raw wood tables and lighting fixtures made from non-conventional wicker materials. This helps to create a warm and comforting area where families can envision enjoying eachothers’ company. Adding fresh plants to the space can add to the natural feel, while mushroom colored rugs offset the darker brown hues.

Red

Yellow

Yellow is a color that signifies friendship. With this in mind, you want to keep the yellow brighter, reminding of sunshine, instead of dingy. Great for any room.

Purple

“Purple, in its darkest values (eggplant, for example), is rich, dramatic and sophisticated. It is associated with luxury and creativity; as an accent or secondary color, it gives a scheme depth. Lighter versions of purple, such as lavender and lilac, bring the same restful quality to bedrooms as blue does, but without the risk of feeling chilly”
6

Orange

“Orange evokes excitement and enthusiasm, and is an energetic color. While not a good idea for a living room or for bedrooms, this color is great for an exercise room; it will bring out all the emotions that you need released during your fitness routine. In ancient cultures, orange was believed to heal the lungs and increase energy levels.”

Top Ten Ways to Update Window Treatments

 Windows are more than just sources of fresh air and natural light; they are a decoration, a place to showcase personality and style.  When windows look like they’ve seen better days, it’s the perfect time to update them with one of these top ten design trends. It’s time to throw open those drapes and reveal your inner stylist!
1. Nature Indoors
Decorate a ledge or windowsill with items from nature. Bowls of brightly colored fruit (wooden or resin are a good option if the window gets a lot of sun), or add small, low-maintenance potted plants to bring the outdoors inside. Pair these items with exposed wood blinds or natural woven shades to take full advantage of the natural look you want.
.
 Wood blinds
 
2. Color Coverings
Plain white shutters or blinds offer a clean look, but don’t draw attention and are not as fun as colored window coverings.  Install some new coverings in complementary colors like ocean tones—blues, turquoise, teal, and soft greens—or pair brown with the latest jewel tones of persimmon, orange, and gold. Go even softer and match your home’s neutrals with dove gray, lavender, and similar dusty hues.


Drapes
3. Luxury Fabrics
Rich fabrics such as damask, satin, fur, suede, leather, silk, and velvet, when used in window coverings can create instant luxury to any home décor.  Luxurious fabrics will always be popular with those who want to enhance the look of their home. Take luxury to the next level and upgrade every element of window decor with crystal, beads, tassels, and metallic rods. Your home will feel as elegant as a French palace!


tassles
4. Bamboo
For an environmentally friendly update, bring on some bamboo! Replace metal window hardware and draperies with bamboo.  The design world is trending more towards natural looks and away from metals and sparkles. Bamboo is resilient and sturdy and will withstand the test of time.

5. Soft Textiles
Soft textures like grosgrain and velvet can be used as a ribbon accent on otherwise plain blinds and drapes.  They are also a creative way to hide route holes for the strings used in most blinds. The best part about adding these soft textiles is that they can be switched up depending on the season, the holiday, or just your design mood.


 soft textiles
6. Simple Lines
Sleek and simple lines, whether in silhouettes or accents, make a window treatment instantly modern. Finish the look with chrome or clean enamel hardware. A quick and simple way to implement this modern look is installing a panel-track system to combine soft, light fabrics with easy use and a perfectly updated window.

7. Bold Prints
Simple and neutral – it’s not your client’s thing? Choose a bright, bold floral or geometric pattern for the fabric used on their window coverings. The windows and the room will be instantly infused with spunk and youthfulness. Keep the pattern large rather than small to avoid a too busy or overwhelming look.


bold drapes
8. Silk Panels
Silk window draperies continue to be popular in the design world. While more expensive than other fabrics, silk brings a shine and lightness that is guaranteed to upgrade any room. These panels can be adjusted to always allow the desired amount of light into a room as well as being easy to take down and clean.


silk drapes
9. High Tech
The natural trend is uniquely contrasted with the ongoing technology boom. Incorporate technology into your design by controlling blinds and curtains with a remote, a light switch, or by using the Internet.  No matter what the design of your room—natural, modern, luxury—going high-tech with your window treatments will bring your designs into this new era.


 powered drapes
10. Green
Green is more than just a soothing color; going green with décor is a way of designing rooms that are environmentally friendly. Fabrics that contain UV repelling fibers reduce glare, reduce heat transfer, and reduce your energy bill.  Fabrics are going green in many other ways as well. Some contain antimicrobial and anti-fungal fibers woven in.  Other fabrics are stain, mold, and mildew-resistant; still more are colored with non-toxic dyes, all of which make your décor healthy for you and your personal environment.

With some simple, trendy upgrades, you can turn your windows from just a typical light source to an avenue for your personality and style!

Student lands dream job shortly after graduating from The Academy of Home Staging & Design’s Interior Design Certification Course.


The Academy of Home Staging & Design graduate, Trisha Elena Guillen of Trisha Elena Designs LLC, had a tip from a friend that Columbia University was looking for an designer for a remodel project for a student area on campus.

“These programs were essential in the progress of communicating my vision and staying organized.” ~Trisha Elena Designs, LLC

Trisha Elena Guillen of Trisha Elena Designs,LLC, a recent graduate of The Academy of Home Staging & Design’ s Interior Design Certification Course, was given a tip by a friend that Columbia University was looking for a designer for their large remodel project for a brownstone on campus.
After communicating with the clients, as well as, Columbia University contacts, interviewing, presenting a portfolio and providing a plan of action, all skills that were enhanced and refined during the Academy’s 5 day Certification program, Trisha was hired for the project, beating out 3 other Interior Designers. Trisha jumped in with both feet.

In a recent interview, Trisha explains the parameters of the project “The job included a redesign plan for six main spaces, including a living room, dining area, foyer, hallway entry, study room, and basement. The redesign plan included new flooring, paint, furniture, rugs, window treatments, artwork, and accessories for these spaces. The goal was to keep all redecorating within a budget of around $30K, a separate budget from the structural enhancements and changes with flooring and paint. “I am so happy that I had finished my program at The Academy so I had the confidence and tools to complete an amazing look for this client.” The client asked Trisha to design a space that was light and modern with plenty of seating. Trisha said, “They liked glass, very light neutral shades, and delicate fabrics, however, we had to make sure that the space would be durable for groups of students to use frequently and comfortably as well as provide upholstery within the standards of fire and safety codes.”

Trisha’s design solutions included incorporating mixed metals for a light, modern look yet durable structure, neutrals in concrete, wood, and lacquer as well as for décor, and navy accents for upholstery in performance fabrics that would resist wear for longer. The main challenges of the space included the lack of seating for large meeting groups, storage, and natural light. Trisha comments, “In a common meeting area, it is crucial that the space inspires creativity and participation while fostering a collaborative environment.”

In the foyer, Trisha created a seating nook with small settees and a tiny coffee table from Worlds Away. For the dining space, Trisha chose fashionable Eames chairs, perfect for long hours of meeting and studying and comfort, and used these same chairs in the large study room so that they could be moved in for meetings. In the living room, she chose steel coffee table pieces that double as seating and added in an extra corner study nook with x shape stools. Trisha lightened up the space by choosing new Benjamin Moore paint in a crisp white for wainscoting and very light gray for walls, as well as neutrals throughout the decorating color scheme. Upholstered furniture pieces were chosen with legs to provide an open airy look versus heavy pieces. Concrete and steel made up her material choices throughout the design, allowing durability along with a contemporary, light space. Mirrors played a huge role as well – The mirrors by Ballard Designs used in the living room opened up the room and bounced natural light into the space!

Trisha managed all aspects of the project including onsite management and double checked every step. Following The Academy’s core training, she believes that communication and organization are the most important aspects of any successful project. Throughout the project, Trisha provided weekly and/or as needed updates with regularly updated budget charts, detailed steps of the plan, and next steps in order to keep the client in the loop as well as the university. “I also utilized many of the programs and techniques that I learned while at The Academy of Home Staging.”The tools, documents, advice, and processes taught and provided during the course were used throughout the full project.”

Kim Kapellusch, owner and founder of The Academy’s 5-day Interior Design intensive for beginners in Los Angeles, CA. says The Academy teaches strong client communication and transparency with standards in business that provide a clear vision to the client, tracking client satisfaction and needs, and how to efficiently move the project forward.

“These strategies and software tools taught at The Academy, were essential in the progress of communicating my vision and staying organized” said Trisha. The Academy of Home Staging & Design is proud of their students and of Trisha Elena Guillen.
Trisha, and all students of The Academy of Home Staging & Design are able to be successful in their Design businesses because of the tools learned from these hands-on courses.

Designer Spotlight Series: Wanda Colón, Former HGTV & TLC Host

This week’s Designer Spotlight Series features a very special guest…someone who is certainly no stranger to the “spotlight” and has become a new (and very welcome) member of the iHomeRegistry community.

That’s right…it’s Wanda Colón, from HGTV’s “24 Hour Design” and TLC’s “Home Made Simple”— and she’s here to talk to us about her experience working with famous private clients, the key to staging homes, who she admires in the design industry and more!

Wanda Colón

1. What attracted you to iHomeRegistry?

As a busy Interior Designer in Los Angeles, I’m always looking for the next new software and/or tool that will allow me to communicate my design vision to the client. Time saving and one stop shopping for this tool is a key factor for me and the entire staff at Style My Space & The Academy of Home Staging and Design. iHomeRegistry allows us to create a fluid design plan with visuals for our client, including a 3D rendering. 

2. How did you get started in the interior design/decorative arts business?

After graduating from college, my first big design job was a restaurant redesign in Reading, PA. It was called The Firehouse Bar & Restaurant. Then I made the move from PA to CA in 2001. I started working for a design firm called Interior Motives, where I also did murals and finishes for our clients.

3. Tell us about your time at HGTV and TLC. How did that come about?

I lived in the same building as Lee Snyders from Design on a Dime. I spoke to his then talent manager and gave her my portfolio. She had me shoot a reel and we started submitting my photo and reel to HGTV, TLC…I auditioned for 24 Hour Design and had 3 call backs to re-audition for the show. Initially they went with someone else. I remember I thought “What, this can’t be” I really felt like it was mine to lose so I followed up with a thank you note and to keep me in mind for anything else. They called a week later and said they reconsidered their first pick. I did HGTV’s “24 Hour Design” for 4 seasons and then had the opportunity to go to TLC’s “Home Made Simple” where I did 6 seasons.

4. You’ve had some pretty well known private clients, including Kelsey Grammer, Paul Stanley, Cher and Johanna Carson. Tell us about working with them.

Of course, the initial meeting, I would ask myself “How did I get here?” and “Am I good enough?” But, what I quickly realized is that they have the same concerns as my client down the street. I would have to say meeting Kelsey for the first time, I called him Frazier on accident. I was mortified, but he assured me it wasn’t the first time. My favorite famous client is Paul Stanley. He is super creative, an amazing artist and gave us a lot of creative freedom. I’m a breast cancer survivor and during my treatment, he ran into a mutual friend who told him I had cancer. He called me asked me if I needed anything and donated a huge painting to my cancer fund.

5. Where do you find your inspiration?

Literally everywhere! When designing someone’s home I want to know where the client has traveled, what they are interested in…it’s super personal to create a space for someone. My goal is for my clients, friends, and family to come into the space and say, ”Wow, this is really you!”

6. If you could design a home for anyone in the world, who would it be?

I would have to say it would have been a blast to collaborate with Frank Lloyd Wright. I just recently toured the SC Johnson house and building in Wisconsin. I was so impressed not only with the overall design but the creative spirit he brought to everything from structure to the functionality of the office chairs.

7. How does the Academy of Home Staging & Design distinguish itself among competitors?

First of all, we are a full service design company. Our sister company is Style My Space where I am the lead interior designer. Kim Kappellush, founder of Style My Space and the Academy, runs the Home Staging part of the business. We have our own warehouse of furniture and have the ability to stage over 100 homes at a time with our own inventory. Kim founded the Academy of Home Staging and was open to us developing the Interior Design aspect to the academy. So what makes us different is that we are successful at what we are teaching. So, anyone coming to the academy is learning from our experience.

8. How have YOU distinguished yourself in such a rapidly growing industry?

I minored in fine arts. I consider myself an artist first and I bring that to the table. Teaching at the Academy also keeps me on track with anything new in design. New software, programs, trends and I get to work with the professionals at the design centers like LA Mart. Being in the know is really important in this industry. So I have a relationship with everyone from my vendors and contractors to the employees in retail stores. When we shop I have a first name basis mentality. I want my clients to be able to go back to Crate & Barrel and be able to ask for the rep that I like to work with.

After: Marina Del Rey model home

9. What are the top one or two keys to staging a home? 

Create a space that has mass appeal to the market and make it special. Personally, I like having that statement art piece.

10. What is your favorite home you’ve ever staged? 

Early in my career I designed and staged a model loft in Marina Del Rey. I had a decent budget and total creative freedom.

11. What is the most important room when it comes to home staging?

First impressions are always great so the first room people see really sets the tone for the house.

12. Who is your design “role model”?

Once again Frank Lloyd Wright…his conviction to his designs is what we all aspire to.

13. What does the future hold for the design/decorative arts business?

The sky is the limit. I love the way design changes and the exposure on TV shows has given interior design the access to everyone. Interior Design is no longer just for the wealthy. It has become available to everyone. Which in turn makes us grow as designers.

Spring Colour Trends in 2014

AUTHOR:

Fashion and interior design sometimes go hand in hand, so just as fashion week colours and styles change with the times, home-staging trends evolve, as well.

Spring colour trends 2014 are all about finding the right balance of bright and pastel to draw attention and pair perfectly together. Pastels are a great way to balance out an extremely bright or drastically dark look without immediately deciding to use a neutral beige or cream colour.

Blues, Purples and Mint Green

Tranquil blues and purples are a definite pairing for the upcoming spring season, and mint green is a growing trend. Pastels always give off the feeling of approaching spring life, and this season is no different with these three colours playing major roles on the runway and in recent décor, inspiring new springtime spaces.

These colours are great to pair against neutrals to help softly add colour, but this season, pastels are also being paired against bright, bold hues for a really full-bodied look.

Royal Blue

Royal blue is one really flush colour that has come back on the scene recently, playing a role as both a neutral in furniture and fabrics, but also as a great accent colour-up against most any other hue. Pairing the tranquil, soft pastels against the bold, royal blue creates a beautiful and welcoming compilation for any social gathering area. This blue is a great colour to accent a room with throw pillows and shelf objects, or to design a room around with a chic lounge chair or a plush bedspread being a main focal point.

Red and Orange

Other bright colours that are really popular this season are fiery red and orange. These two aren’t typical spring colours, but when paired with the royal and tranquil blues, they help round out the palette with a punch of something special.

Golden Yellow and Orchid

Finally, to finish off the spectrum of colours, golden yellow and a wildcard – orchid – help complete the colour trends 2014. Yellow is fresh and optimistic, providing a great source of power to the bright colours that complements perfectly with almost all pastels and encourages attention when partnered with other bright hues.

Orchid is a really unique shade that can stand on its own against the other bright hues, but it also pairs really well with blues and violets, adding some pop while also complementing the pastel colour group. Pair orchid with the bright yellow or rich blue, and the colour combo is one that can’t be ignored, inviting comfort in any space.

Orchids and sunflowers add a natural impact to interior rooms, helping bring the feeling of outside in. So in addition to using the colours of yellow and orchid in fabrics and paint, consider accenting with a vase of bright fresh flowers.

It’s important to keep recent trends and colours in mind when decorating a space, especially if you think that you might be in the market to sell soon. The colour trends 2014 are crisp and bright, a great addition to any home, and designing dynamic rooms helps not only the aesthetic value rise but also the monetary value.

How to Create a Feature Wall

AUTHOR:

Injecting style and colour in a room doesn’t mean that the entire space needs a design overhaul. Whatever the area, a feature wall is a fun and impressive way to add a chic pop of colour without breaking the bank or overpowering the look of a space.

Whether the area of your home is in the bedroom, living room or even in a hallway, a feature wall is a great opportunity to add some attention-grabbing appeal. There are many different ways to add a focal point to the area, whether it is a large room or a small shelving nook above the stairs, and many stylish homes have started to incorporate this contemporary look.

Why Use a Feature Wall?

The first step in creating a feature wall is determining why to use a feature wall in the first place. If you have important artwork to display or a hobby to show off, or if you just want to add some personality to a space without redesigning the entire area, a feature wall might be perfectly suited to your design needs.

The next step in adding a focal point is deciding what colour scheme is in play. If the walls are already painted and the room is furnished, it’s easier to choose a colour to help accent or add a pop of contrast, but patterns and hues can create an endless number of colour options.

Once you have a colour or pattern in mind, you can move on to choosing materials. Wallpaper, tile, paint and different styles of showcasing artwork can all create an interesting and important focal point to showcase paintings, artwork or some personality to the natural line of sight.

Consider Adding Wall Stickers

Wall stickers are one material that has really become popular in interior design over the last decade. These stickers are easy to remove and provide many different looks for your room that you can move and replace. Adding a daring, life-size retro sticker, or creating your own pattern of smaller wall stickers, adds a unique touch to help show personality.

For a more ornate look that can add utility—as well as style—to your home staging, create a wall of storage with different shelving units. The storage shelves can be all different shapes, sizes and colours to be the focal point, or the shelves can be uniform to boldly stand out against the wall colour and showcase the items that sit atop.

Shelves aren’t the only item that can be grouped to create a focal point. Polaroids, empty picture frames, artwork, mirrors and plates can all combine to create stunning feature walls.

Getting Your Wall Noticed

Once the colour and materials have been chosen for the feature wall, the idea is to make the wall really stand out from the rest of the room and maximize the attention. Opening the area around the wall and using simpler accents in the immediate area will add punch and make the statement that you are intending.

If you are interested in creating your own feature wall but aren’t sure about the look you’re after, call Showhome Presentations at 279-7333. Our interior designers specialize in home staging and can help convince you that bare walls are boring. When it comes time to sell, captivating design can make a big difference.
