We take every opportunity to stage in textural neutrals — especially when the developer has a keen eye for style — and outfits the home with AH-MAZ-ING details like super cool light fixtures and fun, practical hooks. We say, “Bring on the light woods and white walls. We can handle them!” All photos by Christopher Lee
Mid Century modern furniture almost always finds its way into our stagings. This home was no exception. We brought in light gray, warm dark wood and burnished brass accents. Green takes a bow (or a bow-wow) here in the form of faux plants.
We love the rattan pendants over the kitchen island and the round basket light over the dining table. All we needed to add were black Eames replica chairs for contrast and a few rustic accents — like a hand-hewn wooden bowl and an ochre vase casually holding cattails.
Gray cabinets contrast with light wood floors for the modern-loving soul. Three Project 62 counter stools stand ready for parties, casual family dining or breakfasting — or even an impromptu work spot for a laptop.
The master bedroom is a study in calm neutrals — with a gray upholstered bed and bench, a tall fiddle leaf fig and more of those awesome basket pendant lights. We kept the styling simple and textural to play up the hygge cozy-factor.
We love how Acapulco chairs command a deck and look so perfect no matter what your style might be. We’ve literally used these in every type of staging. They’re perennial and we consider them a new classic.
