Add Holiday Adornments
The less-is-more mantra of home staging may tempt you to forgo holiday cheer this year.
But a few subtle touches like a pine cone centerpiece, an evergreen wreath or a pot of cider simmering on the stove can create a warm and festive feeling in your home.
"Avoid overtly religious flourishes, which may be off-putting to some buyers."
Complement Your Palette
Before you start untangling your tinsel, make sure your holiday collection matches your current decor.
If your living room has a clean, all-white color scheme, skip the clashing red garland and opt for a white tree, white candles and silver glass ornaments.
"If you've got an earthy color scheme, accent with rich tones like cranberries, forest greens and gold."
