When selling your home, staging can be the difference between a moderate amount of interest and an all-out bidding war. Professional home staging is one of the biggest elements needed to achieve success when selling your luxury home. As a seller, you want to bring in buyers who will pay top dollar for your home. For sellers looking for a leg up on the competition, it is important to know the latest trends in home staging for the LA area.

Amp Up the Texture

Texture is one of the biggest winners in the design world for 2017. Everything from velvet-laden furniture to grainy woods, texture brings the home to life. When stagers pair textures with comfort and clean lines, buyers see the beauty of the home. What’s even better is to play with a mixture of varied textures to create further depth and character.

Go For the Gold

Another huge 2017 home staging and design trend is using glittering gold. From lighting to art, gold is one of this years biggest winners. It also pairs seamlessly with the trending colors for this year, bright green, indigo blue and navy. Other colors like green, red and additional shades of blue are all being used as accent colors combined with gold and metal. A pop of gold paired with rustic wood patterns create a juxtaposition of smooth metal, adding up to the perfect duo.

Geometric Designs

The use of geometric design in things like wallpaper and textiles helps to add a feeling of movement and fun to almost any room in the house. Geometric designs also pay homage to mid-century and modern design sensibilities.

Set the Stage

In order to appeal to people’s true selves, an increasingly popular home staging trend is to create a modern-day lifestyle vignette within the home. Setting a scene helps buyers see themselves in your house. This could be anything from a family game night, set with board games and bowls of popcorn, to a glitzy party with posh place settings. High-end stagers know the market and how to best cater to your buying audience.

Color is Always in Style

According to a 2014 poll of home-owners, two in three owners say that they would like to use more color in their own homes. What this means for sellers is that potential buyers want to see color. Whether it is an accent wall, bold accessories or small pops of color throughout, stagers know that using color helps to create a mood in your home.


Mismatching accessories, finishes and fabrics helps break up the yawn factor in any home. Non-matching chairs around a dining table add fun visual interest to your eating space. There is plenty of mismatching to be done in the kitchen, with things like different color kitchen islands and wall cabinets giving the kitchen a “wow” factor.
