Can a bold design scheme help your home sell?

Can a bold design scheme help your home sell?

Although realtors commonly suggest that homeowners stick to standard design schemes to attract buyers, sometimes your own unique flair can actually work in your advantage. Just take Kourtney Kardashian for example. Kardashian is known for her eclectic taste which includes a love of bold designs, dark fixtures and wallpaper. In fact, her partner Scott Disick even admitted that his home looked like "Alice Wonderland meets Beetlejuice."

But to the surprise of many, including her own sisters, Kardashian's home sold in less than two months and the buyers even paid an extra $125,000 for some of the one-of-a-kind furnishings within the house.

"Kourtney's custom-decorated East Coast-style traditional home in Calabasas is dramatic, with black-and-white wallpaper, flooring, paint and furnishings that give it a lush, modern feel," reports Zillow. "It has views of the city, marble bathrooms, three designer guest suites in addition to the master, and a detached library."

As you can see, if you're trying to sell your home it's important to separate the space from the competition by giving it your own unique flair. In Kardashian's case, her California mansion was decorated in an original design scheme. The reality TV star is obsessed with accents and uses brightly colored furniture pieces and printed window fashions to contrast against the black and white background.
