When it comes to interior design and home staging, clean, minimal lines may be the best choice.  In designing and staging a $6 million dollar penthouse in New York City I decided to utilize the following design tips that anyone can incorporate into their own homes.

1. Begin with neutral palette and then add bursts of color, beiges and grays are great places to start.

2. If you decide not to paint walls a color, you can bring in lots of color through your furniture, artwork and accessories.

3. Purchase well made, timeless furniture pieces. When it comes to high ticket items, you don’t want to be too trendy.

Recently I shared my design ideas with WCBS-TV “Living Large” Host Emily Smith who featured a $6 million dollar property I designed and staged on her segment.
