Vault Interiors founder reveals 6 golden rules for successful home styling


Justine Wilson, Founder of Vault Interiors Property Styling, has unveiled six essential principles for styling homes to perfection for sale, drawing on her expertise from over 20 years in the industry.

Wilson has witnessed the remarkable transformations that professional property styling can achieve, with some previously unstyled properties experiencing up to a 10% increase in their final sale price after undergoing styling.

She explains, “I’ve worked with agents who had unstyled properties that were initially overlooked by potential buyers achieve remarkable outcomes after undergoing professional property styling.”

Wilson’s six golden rules for home styling include:

  1. Declutter and Depersonalise: Remove personal items and excess clutter to create a clean, neutral canvas that allows potential buyers to envision themselves living in the home.
  2. Maximise Space and Light: Use strategic furniture placement and mirrors to emphasise space and natural light, creating an open and airy atmosphere.
  3. Create a Cohesive Style: Establish a unified design style throughout the home using a neutral colour palette and complementary furniture and decor.
  4. Highlight Key Features: Showcase the unique selling points of the home, such as a stunning fireplace, panoramic views, or architectural details, to create a memorable impression.
  5. Add Finishing Touches: Elevate the home’s appeal with carefully curated accessories, such as artwork, cushions, and plants, to add warmth, personality, and visual interest.
  6. Style to highlight your surrounding area: Enhance the home with subtle touches that reflect the lifestyle of the area, such as coastal accents for a home by the sea or edgy colours for a city suburb, to create an emotional response and reinforce the property’s appeal.

Wilson says, “My six golden rules offer a roadmap for homeowners looking to transform their property into a buyer’s dream. By following these principles, sellers can create a captivating and irresistible home that stands out in the competitive real estate market.”
