Did you realize that Premiere Home Stagers offers a shopping service? We shop fast and go to reasonably-priced stores to give you the best value.
We are finishing a client’s redesign project and had a list of items needed to accessorize her lovely home: two lamps, bookshelf items, a large focal point for the fireplace mantel, something tall to put to the left of a console table, and table accessories.
Where do we start? We each peruse the store independently and then come together to go over some pieces that catch our eye. Then we start sifting and winnowing. Sometimes we don’t know what we are looking for until we spot the perfect thing.
Once we choose some items, the rest of the items fall into place. We are mindful of the shapes, textures, color, and pattern of the items so that they complement each other when going from room to room.
The large framed picture has the orange color that was requested for the kitchen’s mantel and is the right size to be the focal point. The brown/orange floor vase with the dried flowers will look great next to the console table. We selected glassware, silver birds, candle sticks, and a table clock for the bookshelves in the living room (in addition to the homeowner’s books). We chose patterned placemats for the kitchen table and a beautiful plate on a stand for the dining room buffet.
Within 1.5 hours, we went to two stores and got everything on our list except a table cloth. [We don’t purchase an item until we are satisfied it is the right thing for your home.] We might use a table runner instead.
The finished project will be shown in a later blog post. Stay tuned!
