Many of my clients and friends ask me for Decorating and Staging tips. Being a former textile designer, I have never lost my love of textiles. I especially love the idea of slipcovers, whether you want to change the look of your home with the seasons, or are looking to sell your house. If your furniture is shabby (and I don’t mean chic) slipcovers are an easy way to change the feel of your room. If you live in a climate that has cold winters, like the Berkshires you probably want your rooms to feel warm and plush during the winter months. The use of heavier materials that are deeper toned might attract you, neutral lovers might be attracted to a mid tone range. Although, have you ever noticed that your winter styled room just doesn’t feel completely right in the warmer months? One quick decorating tip is to slipcover with a lighter or brighter light weight fabric. When a homeowner wants to discuss listing their Berkshire Real Estate with me and hires Berkshire Country Homes to sell their home, i always look to see the condition of their upholstered furniture. If their furniture is worn looking, I recommend slip covering the worn pieces before we photograph their house for online marketing. This small change immediately uplifts the room, and adds value in the buyers mind. Of course if the room is overcrowded and we want to pare down, we remove the worn pieces altogether. In any case whether you want to sell your Berkshire house or want a seasonal change slipcovers are a quick and easy fix.
