Anybody else noticed that one day it was Halloween and the next day it was Christmas in all the stores?
I have three houses with staging in them, one of them is under contract, yippee! I have a lot of pumpkins in one, real ones, fake ones, little ones, big ones, okay okay I got a little carried away! The table setting in one is even orange and black. Now that it's seem the right time to bring out Christmas decor, the orange just doesn't feel right.
Thus, I did it. I brought out some Christmas decor and added Christmas to one house. I feel like maybe I am letting Thanksgiving down. Thanksgiving is all about pumpkin pie, so whats this uneasy feeling with all the orange. Is there some sort of genetic decor DNA that says the time for orange is past and one must now put out something that looks a little more like Christmas. First the fireplace got warmed up with candles.
Second the living and master got red accent pillows.
Third red glass candle holders went on the breakfast bar.
The nice thing about staging, the magic is that a little accent goes a long ways.
