Styling your house for sale

With so many recognisable styles in today’s society it is hard to know which style category your property might fall in to – Midcentury, Coastal, Hamptons, Rustic, Contemporary, Modern , Traditional.  The list goes on, but one thing is certain – styling a property for sale can make all the difference in achieving a higher sale price.

At Copper Beech, The Flower Merchants, we specialise in the art of styling your home with fresh flowers and plants. We have the design skills and creative knowledge to give your property the visual edge for all your open house viewings. 

 With the current northern beaches style trend focusing on coastal Hamptons, nothing compliments this style more than fresh elements throughout all areas of your home.  Styling can be as simple as a textural leaf in bottle vase, a cluster of fresh ripening pineapples or an impressive vase filled with tropical palm fronds and ferns.  Introducing these elements creates a natural sense of freshness, complimenting the crisp lines and natural hues of a coastal home.  With winter approaching fast, creating a warm and inviting home should be at the forefront of your mind.  Cozy nooks with wing backed chairs, luxurious throws and beautiful linen cushions, give any prospective buyer a feeling of homeliness and warmth.


Colour palettes of stormy blue/grey, rich yellows and emerald /garden greens bring the outside in to brighten up the indoors and help connect the entire decorating theme.


Something not to be forgotten is that you are selling your home and we think it is still important to remember that, you have lived there and you want the buyers to feel at home as soon as they walk into your property. Minimalist may be a popular decorating trend that works in warehouse conversions and more modern homes but when you are selling a family home where your children have taken their first steps, swam their first lap in the pool and played their first cricket match in the garden you want to be able to relate this feeling of comfort and homeliness to your potential buyers so they can visualise themselves living in your home, sitting in front of the fireplace, enjoying the pool or cooking up a storm in the kitchen entertaining friends. The buyer you want is the one that has already virtually moved in before they even make a bid.



Copper Beech is the brainstorm of Briohney Anderson and Debbie Braund. We are trusted names in the industry and based on the Northern Beaches with a combined 30 years experience in styling. Winning multiple awards and having our floral styling featured in many magazines, we know what it takes to style your home to help you achieve your best price.
