Seattle is not in short supply of new construction homes. Seems like they come our way each week. You can shop the look below or stop by our SHOP and find some of these great pieces.
A great place to find original affordable art is Etsy. Most often when we are pulling a design together for a home we are staging we begin with the art. It is delivered to the pillow department (that makes our company sound sooo large!) and the design unfolds.
All of the art and pillows are available for purchase. Simpy Click & Shop!
Now for the throw pillows: My sister Tara's rule of thumb is "Solid, Texture and Print". She passes on that tidbit often when she is stopped at her local shopping haunt and asked for advice from other shoppers.
Every space outside of your home is worthy of your attention. You will not regret taking some time to carve out a bit of outdoor beauty. Capture those spaces and create! Even if you are overwhelmed with the size of your yard, pick one of the items below and make it happen. Even if you are underwhelmed by the size of your yard, am intimate space can be created.
This is perfect for a small space for a couple of reasons. It adds a pop of color and style even without any throw pillows, and weathers well. It's also very affordable from Target. Ooh La La, very French!
In the Pacific NW I am a huge fan of metal if it is not under cover. Way less maintenance and worry. Also found at Target.
My all time favorite is a wood farm table but that has to be under cover. I even store mine inside over the winter. They can be high maintenance for sure but warm and welcoming.
It helps to have something to set your fabulous appetizers and craft cocktails on. And this bar cart makes a great statement without taking up a ton of space.
Of course if you have a larger area you can go with a larger bar.
3. CHILL SPACE
And then there is the relaxing area. A welcoming sectional. Once again, this weathers well but here in Seattle I would never leave my cushions out all year-never.
Or go with 2-4 chairs for a smaller space. These chairs read comfort for sure.
A large planter works even in a somewhat small space. A trio of planters makes a great statement as well, especially if they are repeated.
It doesn't all need to fall on your "Operation Fab Outdoor Space" to-do list but I can assure you doing just 1 of these ideas will make you want to be outside. I will not overwhelm you with throw pillows, heaters, fire pits and rugs (but I would like to!). We are brimming with design ideas.
Thank you to Target for all of these great products.
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.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!
A great way to get a look is inspiration from the design world. Here are some kitchen ideas to help with that Urban Farmhouse vibe. A very fun and creative staging job for all of us here at Open House Staging. Click and Shop!
