Home Staging for the Holidays

Channel the season while still spotlighting the home’s best attributes.

You don’t have to rid your wintertime listing of its holiday spirit just because it’s on the market. Many home stagers say they still like to incorporate décor of the season. But they emphasize that subtlety is key.

In fact, one of the hottest holiday decorating styles this year—Scandinavian design—offers a minimalist look along with a festive flair. The style embraces simplicity and focuses on neutral color tones as well as natural elements, like pine cones, fresh pine branches, holly or eucalyptus. Vivianne Chow, an interior decorator and founder of the home décor blog, likes to decorate in Scandi style and incorporate nature-inspired elements into her everyday décor.
