Did You Know That Plaid Is A Hot Trend This Fall?
Well, I recently had an opportunity to do some writing for Taubman malls and to write about 67 trends for the fall. Plaid is one of them! Now, normally my staging isn't really influenced by trends, as I stage more to appeal to a broad range of buyers. But when I saw the plaid sofas in this house in Fenton, I thought I could work with them and save the sellers some money. I think I pulled it off--what do you think?
Here are some Before and After photos:
We had the perfect rug to pull out the colors and make this work. We also used leather cubes in place of the larger table to save space and to update the look. I found the table on the left in the basement, and I also used their table lamps with RE:STYLE's floor lamp. The beautiful painting belongs to the seller.
By mixing in some more modern accessories (mirror, floor lamp, tray table), RE:STYLE helped to give the plaid, and the room, a much more "now and wow" look and feel. Here are some other photos of the staging in different rooms:
We took the leaf out of the table, and used the 2 extra chairs in the Breakfast Nook, with a table we found, once again, in the basement. The painting is the seller's, as is the interesting table seen in the background. RE:STYLE provided the mirror, rug and other accessories. Did you notice that we also changed out the shades on the chandelier?
We used a Queen instead of the King to show off all the space in the room, added lamps, changed out the bedding, and used a trunk that had been in the Living Room so everything didn't look so "matchy matchy". We also introduced a screen as a headboard, again to mix it up a bit.
