There are some beautiful wallpapers out there and while I love them, I just can't bring myself to wallpaper an entire room. However, I can still enjoy the lovely patterns that are out there by using the wallpaper in other ways. Photos courtesy of All Posters and Real SimpleFraming pieces of wallp...

Courtesy of Melissa Marro of South Carolina: Last night I sat down and blogged about stats that we've been having here lately in Charleston, SC with our staged homes.  Well, just a few minutes ago I received an email from a team member letting me know that a home she recently staged has gone und...

This past weekend began the removing things from walls and giving them designations - "garage sale", "keep", "donate" and "trash".  We went from room to room writing down what needed to be done in each room.  Some rooms will be quick; just a matter of thinning out our "stuff", others will need so...

I kind of had a head start on this post because when we first started kicking around the idea of putting our house up for sale I knew this powder room was going to have to be redone.  I knew that the wallpaper had to come down, and since it was the only room in our house with wallpaper, I figured...

Nope, this post isn't about a client or a home staging consultation.  My husband and I have decided that it is time to put our house on the market and look to down-size.  Is it going to be emotional?

Mother's Day is just a few weeks away! Looking for something different to give Mom this year? Gift certificates make great gifts! Has your Mom indicated she wants to "freshen" up the house?  Maybe she's indicated that a room needs painting, but she's not sure what color.  Is her furniture and acc...

Sharon Tara, a home stager neighbor to the north, has made her blog post available for a reblog.  I hope it will be of interest to homeowners getting ready to put their homes on the market this spring. If you are one of the many sellers who took their house off the market this past winter with t...

I've long admired your house and your renovation/purchase of this family home will work so well for you!   I love the crown molding in your living room; it sets that paint color off so nicely.  I love how the rooms flow into each other and you can pretty much see from the front door straight to t...

I've started saving these little bottles and soaps that my husband brings home for me from his business trips.  Instead of sticking them in the cabinet under the bathroom sink (and forgetting about them), I like to add them to bathroom stagings.  These work well if I'm using a small basket with h...
