jjranch-sophisticatedstyle.typepad.com > Melissa's Home Staging

Melissa completed staging of the whole home, the rooms look fabulous. We had many "WOW!" when the Realtor caravan came through. Had to take the link out because it is a direct connect to the MLS: Yes, we are attempting to sell in this horrible housing market. View Melissa’s Home Staging Photo Album for Staging on a budget. Click on any picture. Decor items are for sale. Sorry there is no way within TypePad to change the room grouping picture order. The final staging pictures appear first then the work in progress display in no room order. My camera takes terrible pictures, will get a new camera when the house sells.

Grain Sack Pillows on a day bed in this room. I love these pillows they are soft and down filled. These grain sack pillow adorn a bed or sofa beautifully. They make me want to curl up and take a nap.

Middle Bathroom

Middle Bathroom

This bathroom is simply stated, gorgeous new tile flooring and the glass block window allows light to illuminate the space. Always thought this would be the perfect child bathroom because it has two little ledge seats for Mom or child to sit upon.

This four votive tea candle on the lower shelf is a smaller version of the 11 (eleven) tea candle votive that sits stately on the fire place mantel, they complement each other perfectly in a room.
