Pangaea - wow! Congratulations on this much deserved award. It should draw many new clients to your services and re-establish you and the stager to use to your existing clients.

The home is staged beautifully - I love the round end tables mixed with the square and rectagular shapes of the other pieces. The various dimentions really create interest that is easy on the eye - great work!

Kathy - Thank you! One of the challenges here was to blend my economical staging inventory with a few high-end custom pieces provided by the architect and some of his associates. That table was one of the designer pieces. It really makes a statement. Almost everything else is mine though.

Debra - Thanks for noticing! One of the things I tried hard to do was to soften the room a bit with organic shapes. When it was empty, everything was very linear.

Liz - Thank you so much! The living room, entry and stairwell were painted in two shades of deep brown. Both are Sherwin Williams colors. If I remember right, the one right next to the fireplace is Fiery Brown. The brown elsewhere in the room is French Roast.
