Staging Secret #8 – White opaque or black paper lamp shades are great! These shades are clean, crisp and modern. Lamp shades with printed fabrics, beads or heavy trim are just too fussy and will date a room quickly.
Staging Secret #9 – Pillows with tucked in corners known as Turkish corners are so much plumper and luxurious than a regular square edge. They will really soften even a modern sofa.
Staging Secret #10 – If there are pillows or duvet covers that may have too busy a pattern on the front and just overwhelming in a room then check the reverse side. That pillow be just be a more pleasing solid color on back or the bedspread may have a more simple print on the back that would be promote a clean and simple look.
Staging Secret #11 – When thinking about painting a ceiling in a room avoid going dead white since all white paint has some bit of gray in it. The ceilings will appear shorter so try an off white paint color.
Staging Secret #12 – A tall mirror above a fireplace or one large piece of furniture will instantly make a room appear larger thats all it takes!
