Use decorations in your holiday home staging to highlight the positives. Have a gorgeous mantle? Decorate it with a few well-placed ornaments. Hang mistletoe in an interesting doorway. The choice is yours!
If you can’t think of where to place your decorations, a well-dressed table goes a long way. Potential buyers can imagine themselves enjoying this holidays to come when you have a table set for a feast.

You can use the ideas and tips from above to help decorate the space outside your home, too. Curb appeal is something that matters any time you are selling your home so be sure to add it into your holiday home staging ideas. Just like the inside, these should be simple and sweet!
Keep the décor to a minimum with a few strands of lights and some wreaths.
Play up the space you have. Happen to have a killer front porch? Play up the best parts of it. Whether it is space or an architectural detail, make sure they can see it.
