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
The beautiful tea lights/candle holders set of 3, purchased through a friends company. You should check out their website for items that are unique, handmade and show creative flare

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
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.

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