Weekly Blog No 22 – Home Staging – Katjazzled 1

I thought I would give you an update on how my home staging –  katjazzled is developing. I did discuss in an earlier post, Week 6 about Home Staging – Katjazzled. I’m going to show you some photos of home accessories placed around my home that I have brought and an insight to the colours that I have chosen to date

Each room has neutral walls & floor coverings as base tones and then I will inject a strong colour in accessories. On this occasion, I have used colours in my home that I have not always be my first choice before, however I’m happy that I can think outside the box. On the main floor I’ve used a lot of grey against the warm tones of cream, natural hardwood flooring and pine/oak furniture.   See the photo’s below

Dining Room

As the main floor area is open plan, I’ve decided to continue working with grey/silver but added a hint of green in the dining room

Mud Room

Mud Room 1

The mud room is the place were we remove our shoes etc. I have shoe polish stored in the drawers and Lottie’s lead usually hangs off the hooks too. I actually stained this piece in order to match an English church pew just below, which is not shown in the photo.

A  few weeks ago, I asked another friend who’s an amateur photographer and blogger, if I could have some of her work for my home. There was a few photos that particularly stuck me as exceptional.  I had two rooms that I was considering but I’ve only managed to place some of the photography in one area to date. I decided the upper landing/hall was perfect for the theme of travel, showing photography/art of my travels around the world. I will show my travel gallery art/photography at a later date.

Front Lobby

The front lobby is starting to take shape but it is still incomplete, there is another couple of things that I want to buy for the walls

Main/Guest Bathroom

Main/Guest Bathroom

I decided to choose a bright warm colour for accessories to the main/guest bathroom and went with yellow, which is warm and inviting.

Laundry Room

 I still have to finish the laundry room but I have plucked a colour from this picture to complete the accessories and wall art for this room.

2nd Guest Bedroom

2nd Guest Bedroom

 I’m not a lover of purple as a rule but I do feel that if you get the right shade of purple with creams/beige it almost looks warm &  regal. This is a shade of purple that I am using to accessorize the 2nd guest bedroom.

I will never used strong colours on walls or floor coverings as I like to use neutral shades so that the interior of my home doesn’t date too quickly. I will always infuse strong/bold colours through accessories, which can easily changed over time if necessary.
