The Inventory ~ Dining Tables and Chairs

When I began planning my inventory one of my main objectives was to find with pieces that had some flexibility/versatility.  Why might you ask?  Simply put, a stager's inventory has to accommodate different styles, room sizes as well as interior colors. 

In home staging, we can't change the style of the home or its interior colors or size to suit our inventory, therefore, our inventory best suit the home's overall size, style and colors.

Since I live and work in the San Francisco peninsula, it made sense to cater to the largest home buyer demographic.  Hence, I was going for more fresh and modern decor to start with.

My first dining table purchase was this cb2 Silverado dining table.

The Inventory ~ Rugs, Runners, Mats, Oh My!

Few weeks ago I went shopping for a few (much needed) items for the staging inventory.  Since I needed a runner straight away for an upcoming project, no time for online shipping, off to Lowes I went.

After going though each and every runner available, I was pleasantly surprised to find more than a couple of good possibilities:

St. Martin Project ~ jumping the order

Originally it was my intention to post staging projects in chronological order, but I've had a change of heart. My Houzz account does that seamlessly for me, allowing me to post based on inspiration instead of chronological order.  Plus, you'd probably sick of seeing the same furniture over and over again.

I just recently finished the St. Martin project. It's a lovely home right on the water.

It's a more traditional home with lots of light and a huge master. 

Let's have a look, shall we?

Steal This Deal! 3-Tiered Gold Tone Side Table

Greeting bargain hunters!  Just came across another share worthy deal last night. 
You may recognize this lovely 3-tired Terrace Side Table in Antiqued Brass at West Elm:
I've been wanting this side table for ages.  It's so light, airy, so gorgeous! Unfortunately furniture purchases for my personal space has been put on hold for now.  Growing my home staging inventory is top priority.

In my (ever constant) search for great deals on furnishings for my staging inventory, I am always on the look out for a high end look for less.  I've been drooling over this Parson console at West Elm.

Before and After Project Bermuda

I previously posted my first project here.  The same client was kind enough to contract me to stage their next remodel, the Bermuda project.  Today I am sharing that project with before and after photos. 

The Bermuda project is 3bd/2ba with a family room and eat-in kitchen.

Steal This Deal! Budget Friendly Mirror

My last post was not as budget friendly as this next deal I'm going to share with you.

I purchased two for my staging inventory about a year ago, from Lamps Plus. They were on sale for an amazing deal.  The overall dimensions is 37.5" and the mirror itself is 20", reflects loads of light, and the open metal work is solid; you can't bend this one!
