Sometimes, a wildly unexpected hue can be the easiest way to update a room, which was the approach architect Anik Pearson took with a vintage New York apartment that had its footprint and bones intact. “We restored it to its glory but with a modern twist by painting the dining rooms walls and beams a bold teal, filling in the space between beams in white, and running some chinoiserie-inspired wallpaper all around,” she says. Bob Zuber, partner, principal, and head of architectural design at Morgante Wilson Architects in Chicago, finds that tinted Venetian plaster warms up ceilings. For the best coverage and less splatter, Rick Wilson, director of product information at Sherwin-Williams, stresses the importance of using quality ceiling paint. His colleague Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, suggests going with flat or matte finishes to hide imperfections and produce a polished, clean look for any color choice. Otherwise, painting the ceiling is no different from painting walls.
Zoom in on whats extra-special. Good photography always helps a listing shine, but uber-personalized choices call for more than overall room shots, Katz says. He advises making certain features look aspirational—like theyre part of a curated Instagram feed. Pogonitz also sees social media as an inspiration for listing materials. “This is how millennials communicate, build interest, and gain followers,” she says, recommending agents use close-ups and short videos to relay a story about features that showcase personal style. However, if theres anything in the room that may not appeal, Kim Cantine with Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty in Rhinebeck, N.Y., suggests not highlighting it. “Buyers will see it in person, but you dont have to play it up,” she says.
