Frogtown Flip Staging

Our headquarters is about a stone's throw away from Frogtown (Elysian Valley, Elysian Park), a hip LA neighborhood that's really taking off - and we love staging over there. In fact, our very first (!) professional NELA staging was on Elmgrove in LA's famous Frogtown (named for the melodious frogs that sing along the LA River). We did this one awhile ago, people, so bear with us. It's been busy!

In the living room, we kept things simple, high contrast, textural and ethnic. We love how the tribal pattern rug looks layered with a large sheepskin. The West Elm credenza is low and sleek, and World Market's Mid Century modern coffee table is one of our faves.

Can you spot the fake fiddle leaf fig? Yeah, right there in the corner. It's sooooo much easier than remembering to water those suckers.

Is there a modern room than can't be improved with some Eames? Yeah, we don't think so either. Gray Eames replica chairs cozy up to an MCM table in the dining area.

We really loved this kitchen - and we see A LOT of kitchens. It's compact but efficient, and that open shelving. Our little hearts go pitter-pat at the sight of it.

A small area off the kitchen offers space for a desk and chair. Open to the backyard breezes, this makes working from home hardly seem like work at all.

The master bedroom gets a strong dose of blue, and an awesome macrame wall hanging. Not to mention a vintage church pew at the foot of the bed.

This home has a secret room upstairs - accessible by ladder. And, yes, that's a fully lined cedar closet. Moths? What moths?

An all-white room. Add some indigo and a vintage MCM chair and it's all good.

Louis cube tile in the shower. We added an African birthing chair and spa accessories.

A smaller bedroom gets a twin bed and some bright orange. We love the Made in LA framed art poster. The side table was sourced at Pepe's Furniture in Echo Park.

We love staging garages, and this one was no exception. Industrial touches feel right at home here - along with a few Mid Century modern pieces.
