STAGING SMALL SPACES.  PART 3--FURNITURE ARRANGEMENT I think the operative sentence for decorating small spaces would be "less is more".  The second bedroom of this 950 square foot, 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo that I have been blogging about definitely did not follow this rule.  This post is not abou...

STAGING SMALL SPACES.  PART 2--INVISIBLE BARRIERS (OR WHY DOES THE SPACE FEEL SO SMALL?)

"A PERFECTLY KEPT HOUSE IS THE SIGN OF A MISSPENT LIFE" AND THE ANTITHESIS OF HOME STAGING You have to love the title--well, not of the post.  The part in quotes is actually the title of a book by Mary Randolph Carter.  Even better is the byline:  "How to Live Creatively with Collections, Clutter...

HAS STAGING GONE TO THE DOGS? Maybe not the dogs, but to the dog shelters for sure. What does professional pet photographer, Teresa Berg, have in common with professional home stagers? She says, "It's all about the marketing". Believing that many dogs were not being adopted because of the photos ...

Change Your Wall Color Without Using a Brush How many times have you been standing in a client's house trying to have them visualize the room painted in a different color--or without the wallpaper border?  Too many times is my answer.  Don't you just love getting that, "I'm-not-too-sure-that-I-ag...
