Snuggle up to these 2017 winter style ideas

By Kevin Kelly

Some say winter is the worst time of the year: the biting cold, wet roads, and longer nights. However, if you're looking to sell real estate in Bunbury, winter might just be the most opportune time for you. Potential buyers stay on the prowl during winter, but fewer people list their properties than in the temperate seasons of autumn and spring, meaning you'll likely get more interest if you do list. 

When thinking about putting your property on the market this winter, consider carefully styling your interiors for your open home to make your home seem like a peaceful haven from the cold. We've found these easy-to-do styling tricks which will have your home selling faster than you can imagine.

Get moody

This winter is all about attitude. Forget your Scandinavian minimalism and say hello to dark blue, forest green, and dusky pink. These jewel tones will bring a cosy luxuriousness into your home. Make use of velvet on your throw pillows and other soft furnishings to gently reflect the light of a roaring fire (or warm yellow lights).

Metal and clay

While past warm months have been about polished rose gold and copper, winter wants you to get a little dirty. Stick to warm or dark toned metals, but look for a natural patina (antique gold or brass is ideal) or a beaten metal effect. Avoid choosing too-cool tones or overly shiny metals as that will make your room feel colder. You can also use terra-cotta vases to bring bold earth tones into your decor.


Once you've brought in dull shine from your velvet and tarnished metals, soften your room with chunky knits. Knitted cushions are making a comeback this winter, and a cable-work blanket or throw is never out of style. Consider softer earth tones when choosing your knits to really let the your moody jewel tones pop.

Something in the air

Something as simple as lighting a few scented candles or investing in a room diffuser can really immerse potential buyers in the atmosphere your styling has established. In winter, look for scents like cinnamon, vanilla, and sandalwood to bring spice and smoke into the mix.

These tips will ensure you have the most stylish home on the market this winter. If you're looking to sell real estate in Bunbury, be sure to contact us at Ray White Bunbury to get the most for your property.
