Every room comes to life with throw pillows. They are the single most room transforming tool we use. The pillow department in our warehouse is in constant need of organizing after every job. It's like the brilliant artist at work with them thrown about in hopes of creating a great combination for our staging jobs. The pillows below are designer fabrics-they are exceptionally nice and come in many sizes. Click and see...
I told you all about HGTV’s Restored by the Fords show a while back in a post here. Brother and sister team who renovate homes in Pennsylvania. She has a sassy style and he executes her fabulous signature. Great ideas on re-purposing, refinishing, redoing, remodeling, you get the jig…Very much worth your time to watch it if you haven’t already.
Here is her Project 62 lighting line for Target. I love the look in very small doses.
We gotcha covered here when it comes to decorating for fall. It is a perfect time to shake up some spaces by adding rich tone and textured throw pillows, maybe a bit of cheesy Halloween decorations, classic pumpkins, moody candles (well, I think candles can be moody), a fur throw.

What is an Urban Farmhouse?
An Urban Farmhouse, combines traditional features with modern trends to create an updated and fresh take on a classic. These homes are known for a blend of horizontal and vertical siding, open floor plans, covered back porches and metal roofs. They may have reclaimed woods, metal and leather elements, industrial elements with timeworn finishes and distressed details, and unique light fixtures. Essentially, straddling the line between rural and urban. This eclectic, mix-and-match style is less about following the rules and more about creating a highly original look for every room in your home.
Let's get one thing straight: I shot these photos on my iphone so they are not going to wow you but the room change may.
My daughter went off to college so it was time to create a more grown up beautiful room for her return. It only took me a week to complete. Here is how it worked:
I have been following Tuft and Needle mattress company for a couple of years. They sell 1 mattress in several sizes. The Queen is about $550. I tried it out, my nephew tried it and now my daughter. We are all fans. You do not need to pay big prices for a mattress anymore. I purchased mine from Amazon for a handful of reasons. Purchase here. Ships in a box, open, cut plastic and it expands. PRESTO!
The makeover cost me about $1400.00. That is with the mattress, hiring a painter, the paint, bedding, and accessories. No furniture. Everything was Home Goods, Target and Amazon. The furniture: bed (also sold on Amazon) and dresser and mirror are Ikea.
The original room was Carrie's (Sex in the City) apartment color-left image. My youngest is not a fan of feminine so this is what we agreed on (back in the day).
We are adding a collection of black and whites on the wall and I think that completes the look.
Every Monday morning our team of Stagers gather to discuss our upcoming jobs, staffing, vacations, weekend plans, funny stories, and blog ideas.
We may have another Mother's Day Gift Giving post from our resident shopping Queen-Tara. Her experience is vast and on trend so cross your fingers and stay tuned.
