Oftentimes when we are staging homes my sellers assume that we will be tossing out or selling off what they irreverently call “old junk.” It surprises them when I rush over and beg them to keep it. These pieces give homes warmth, character, and a sense of story that is very hard for me to create when I am starting from scratch.
Over and over I hear buyers saying that they love the way a home feels. It’s about the essence of the home and the way it feels to them that convinces them over and over to buy homes.
I thought this home was a great example of how you can easily incorporate “the old stuff” and really make a home feel extra special. I also love that the furniture is dark! It seems that lighter wood is very in right now but these darker pieces on pale gray walls look amazing when paired with a slinky silhouette white chair!
I also wish buyers wouldn’t be in such a rush to discard these honey toned floors. They are DIVINE!
Do you have any furniture you’ve got stashed away or not really using that might need a second glance?
