Settling an Estate
Settling an estate is a lengthy process. The house sat empty for months waiting until legal procedures were properly executed. Luckily, the bank trustee requested the house be staged in order to recoup as much as possible. Landscaping was done, the carpets cleaned, and the house cleaned, but painting wasn’t an option.
I liked the way I staged this room. I removed the gold sheers as they were casting a yellow hue on the beige walls. I placed the sofa in the position to view the fireplace without making a barrier into the living room. However, the sofa makes a nice break between the dining area and living room. The two easy chairs are diminutive so that they fit nicely on the only living room wall. The area rug picks up the colors from the sofa and the two chairs. It just feels right.
