Fall Ideas Tour and Flowers for Staging

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

We spent the weekend working on the house . . . inside and out.

Today the house is being photographed for real estate purposes.

I will share them with you as soon as they are available.

Today I present a Fall Ideas Tour and flowers for staging.

The other day I took a trip to Trader Joe’s

and picked up many bunches of flowers in the purple and plum colors.

I also lucked out and got 2 dozen white roses at Target for $7.50!  A super sale!

Here is what I originally did with the white roses.

A Furniture Shuffle for Staging and Simple Fall Touches

I have been  eliminating some small pieces of furniture in each room of the house

to gain a less cluttered, cleaner look, staging the house to place it on the market.

Some pieces of furniture were sent to storage and some danced to the Furniture Shuffle.

A furniture shuffle for staging and simple fall touches occurred in the Media Room.

While I am still tweaking this room, I thought I would show you

one side of the room today.

More Simply Stated Kitchen Decor

More kitchen items have been packed away and stored.

Even though there were some things on the kitchen counters

that were items of convenience, like an ironstone pitcher filled with wooden spoons,

and cooking utensils.  It was just one more item that I could place out of sight

and keep the counters with less stuff.  So today we have more simply stated kitchen decor.

Guest Room Refresh

While I was eliminating a few large items in the Guest Room,

and doing some general de-cluttering and staging.

I could not help but think if I should refresh the room

with Summer decor? Or should I just do a Guest Room Refresh? Refresh I did.

 When packing up some pillows, I kept a pillow aside,

knowing I would use it in one of the rooms for the summer.

Dining Room Changes

I guess you can say that every room in this house is going through a change

in that there is a room with less. Less items to create a more spacious feel

and then there is the more . . . taking things away means more to pack away.

Speaking of less, I will be keeping the centerpiece on the dining room table simple.

 However, simple does not mean you cannot have a bit of elegance too.

Today I present my dining room changes, starting with the simple, yet elegant centerpiece.

Less is More, the Staging Begins

They say less is more. However, I love seeing my pretties about the house.

I have been very busy taking small pieces that can be considered “too much” in

the room and taking them to the storage unit ….. or should I say the hubby

has been taking them to the storage unit.

So with some difficulty, I am in the mindset of

Less is More, the Staging Begins!

Welcome to the Great Room.
