Classic and Elegant Updates from Elinor Jones

Posted by


Spaces designed by Elinor Jones are known by their understated elegance coupled with comfort and livability. She has helped my clients with staging consultations by selecting paint colors and making recommendations on furniture editing and placement. The end result is a fresh and streamlined appearance that has maximum appeal to Atlanta buyers when they view the pictures online.

She  believes in the concept of improving your home when your budget allows so that you can love your house now and sell easily later.  Some of her frequent recommendations are below.

Hardwoods on main level, on stairs, and in upper level hallway help make your home appear unified and spacious.

In kitchens, she recommends that dark wood cabinets be painted a light, neutral color, to provide a pleasing contrast to wood floors. Dated pulls can easily be replaced with brushed nickel or chrome. If you don’t already have granite or a similar solid stone countertop then update. Tile backsplashes not only look good, they also protect your walls, especially behind the stove.

painted paneling

Paint any dark or paneled walls a light neutral color that will look crisp against the hardwood floors to give an open and airy feel. Remove any heavy or dated draperies opting for bare windows.

Not only will Elinor’s suggestions help you place your home in pre-listing condition, but you will get to enjoy your updated look now.
