For Sale: Interior Design Inspiration

How do you find your design inspiration?

As we curate our home, there’s so much to consider: function, comfort, our traditions, and what we love to look at every day. Whether you’re filling a new space or breathing fresh air into a lived-in room, you might be able to find inspiration from a newly listed home.

A recent piece in the Washington Post highlighted model homes as design inspiration. They’re not wrong – builders and realtors of new build and model homes will present the newest features, home tech, and more, alongside ideally placed furniture, on-trend light fixtures, the latest color schemes, and the list goes on.

To take it one step further, I would encourage those looking for design inspiration to look beyond model homes. Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty brokers work with or are themselves top-tier interior designers and stagers. With a list of preferred vendors who specialize in making the most out of every space, they ensure properties present their best, both in person as well as in photographs. Take advantage of their expertise and view RSIR listings. Perusing the listings, and maybe even stopping by an Open House in your neighborhood, may provide you with trendy design ideas for condos and homes of all types and price-points.

To jump-start your imagination, here are a few photos from some of my staged listings that sold earlier this year.
