Suggested Colour Schemes for Staging a Home


My personal favourite colour is red. However, being a professional home stager and interior decorator, this is not a colour I get to use often.


For my staging clients, my favourite interior wall colour is Benjamin Moore Natural Linen cc90. This light tan colour works well with soft grays such as BM Revere Pewter HC172, BM Edgecomb Gray HC173 and even BM Gray Mist cc80. As a ceiling and trim colour, BM Dune White cc70 is a beautiful tone of white.

Keep a fairly neutral palette allows vendors and home owners to bring in variety of brighter colours with accent pieces, textured fabrics and upholstered goods.

Personally trained by Jackson West, Property Stylist, Reveal Estate and trainor for Certified Canadian Staging Professionals™, my passion is creating and capturing a modern style of living. Clean lines with everything in its place are the attributes that I believe speak volumes about a home and resonate with me as a staging professional.

I’ve transformed pedestrian common place, unremarkable, basic functional spaces into ones that are simple yet tastefully elegant. My approach is straightforward and focuses on making the best possible use of the space available. By incorporating the proper use of color, lighting and artwork as well as the proper placement of furniture and accessories a show home look can be attained.

A successful business career at the national corporate level has provided me with a solid foundation and proven critical skill set including project management, attention to detail, the ability to prioritize, time management, goal setting, team effectiveness and service orientation.
