Color Me Beautiful!


Margo makes a great point with this post.  Just changing some colors and using the right ones will make a great difference to buyers looking at your home.


COLOR ME BEAUTIFUL! Color in your home can change how you feel!

Taking some steps to select the right color can make an instant difference in the way a buyer perceives your home. Suggestions for selecting color:

1. White – makes the room invisible. Does not help the buyer to imagine themselves living in the home

2. Dark room? Use a warm color – research on shows choices in the red/yellow family create the feelings of comfort and joy. Likewise a very bright, sunny room can be “cooled” with the use of colors in the blue or green family.

3. Coordinate color with a room’s purpose – “food colors” work in kitchen and dining rooms, “calming” colors in the blue family work well in bedrooms.

4. Accent walls – can add a punch of color while keeping a more neutral overall theme in the house.

Subtle tints strike the sophisticated tone buyers will appreciate in your home! 

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
