There are endless types of plants to choose from and various ways to display each one. Staging is so much more than furniture placement. Here are a few of our favorite combinations, when staging a home getting ready for the market.

Geometric Pots

Find geometric pots or planters of various sizes and plant small succulents of different styles and colors in each one. Then group a few pots together on a window sill or shelf, or use them individually to adorn a side table or center of the dining room table.

Long, Hanging Plants

Purchase a larger, draping plant, like eucalyptus, fern, or ivy, and hang it from the ceiling using a macramé plant hanger.  You may also place it on a high shelf or ladder. These plants are perfect for the corner of your living room They are also great in a room with a large, plain wall that is in need of a little pop of color.

Do you have a corner in an oversized room that needs help filling? Consider turning it into a small plant sanctuary. Select plants of all different sizes, heights, colors, and styles. Purchase either matching pots or a mix of designs. Consider the use of a stool or small table to create additional levels. Strategically place each one in the corner.

Decorating with Air Plants

Air plants are universal and can be included in DIY wall art. They may also be hung from the ceiling or on the wall inside geometric, metal prisms. Placing them inside beautiful glass terrariums, alongside other plants and colorful rocks or sand, is another great idea.

Plants accent the home beautifully, when done right. Also adding brightly colored flowers, right outside the front door, provides a welcoming feel. For help in getting your home ready for buyers to see, contact us for a free walk through and consultation.
