Still Staging

I hope you all had a great weekend!  
My weekend was downright boring and dull!  
But it was my choice 
because I was nursing a sinus infection 
due to our ever changing weather 
here in the Midwest.  
I tried to stay inside and rest 
but you know how that goes...  
I ended up moving furniture around 
and packing a lot of my dishes that I don't use.  
Mr. Beaux thinks I am crazy 
but my theory is 
that it all has to get packed eventually 
and if I am productive then I feel like 
I am moving forward 
and not stuck in a holding pattern. 
OK, follow along while I lead you 
through the changes...
Remember the pretty china hutch 
that I bought for the Living Room 
and was in the process of refinishing?  
Yeah, well it never got 
much past this stage here.  
Oh Boy!  
I just didn't have a big chunk 
of time to devote to it.  
So, we had a friend come over 
and help us move it out 
to the garage this past week.  
So, then I had a big blank 
wall staring at me...  
I had the sofa up against the wall 
for about a minute and 
that made the wall even larger.  
I put my two Bergere chairs 
on that side of the room 
and searched around for 
artwork for the wall.  
Remember these botanical prints 
that I framed for the kitchen a while back?
They were down in storage 
so I had Mr. Beaux hang them 
up for me on Sunday.  
And just in time too!  
We had another showing Sunday afternoon.  
Didn't he do a great job?  
He was really my hero this weekend!  
He fixed our shower so that it has 
awesome water pressure now, 
painted the messed up ceiling 
in the foyer with an exact 
paint match (not easy to do), 
ran a million errands 
while I was sick 
and brought me chicken soup!  
The height of the pictures balances 
out the fireplace on the other side 
of the room and because they are all in
the same frame they look neat and tidy.
In the photos the wall looks 
much larger than it really is...
I placed my tray table in between 
the two chairs and used 
just a few accessories.  
The power of three!  
Keeping the clutter down is important!  
I selected the blue and white plate 
to bring the colors from the fireplace 
shelves over to this side of the room.  
I placed the plate on the vintage books 
so that the heights would be varied as well.  
The showing on Sunday went well 
according to the feedback.  
But the realtor says that 
"she doesn't know where they are"  
which means that we are still 
in our holding pattern... 
But I will continue to move forward 
by packing more boxes 
(a co-worker brought me a car-full today) 
and de-cluttering...

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

Hi Cindy,
I love that whole area, the 2 chairs with the table in between and the picture were the perfect finishing touch.

are trying to sell there townhouse quick so they can put an offer on a home..........they finally found one they
love and can we are praying for a sale for them too, so will include you as well.
Hope you are feeling much better by now, but we will include a prayer for that too.

Stunning room, beautiful staging - love the space and LOVE the newly hung artwork, it does wonders.

GL selling! It will be difficult leaving such a beautiful home.

I like the pictures there- great job! The table vignette looks wonderful. This time of year is tough to sell but spring seems to get people moving! Sorry you got sick- I had a sinus infection early January and though it wasn't terrible it seemed like the side affects were with me for 3 weeks. When I'm too sick to make meals my husband goes to the deli which makes me laugh. Your home is beautiful!

It will be hard to leave this beautiful home, I know. I feel for you as we moved here 2 years ago and the packing took FOREVER! Thank God I had fabulous friends who helped. And we were VERY organized so it all went smoothly. Hope you are feeling better!!!

The pictures just make the area look perfect. Love the chairs and tray table. Beautiful staging!!

That Mr. Beaux is definitely a "keeper"!!!
I take it that by your 'holding pattern' you are preparing for an upcoming move.
Here's hoping for a quick $ale of your home, so that you may move forward with your plans!!!
Your living room is exquisite!!!
