lendale’s Verdugo Woodlands neighborhood is a quiet, peaceful spot filled with lovely traditional homes. We recently had the opportunity to stage our second Woodlands home, currently occupied by a family of three. The family owned some lovely antiques which we were able to use in our staging. We added some modern elements to create a transitional space that appeals to all.
The space has dark wood floors, soft wall colors and lots of original details like moldings and a great fireplace.
We started with the entry way, in which we used the family’s Craftsman console table accented with our accessories.
We styled the living room with an off-white sofa and matching lounge chair, a transitional console table and pops of orange and gray.
A glass-top cocktail table virtually disappears in the room, but offers the gleam of glass. A mirror over the console bounces light around the room.
A pair of red foo dogs on the mantel tie into the deep orange pillow on the chair and the orange throw on the sofa.
A light aqua porcelain lamp is a great complement to the orange in the room.
A view over the sofa shows the entry way and the second bedroom. The homeowner’s vintage milking stool serves as a small side table.
A view into the dining room. We styled an existing antique table with a glass lamp, a stack of books and a handwoven basket.
We paired a traditional dining table with four long slipcovered chairs and the homeowner’s matching dining chairs as head chairs. A plate wall is seen in the background.
A china cabinet is filled with white dishes, a la Martha Stewart.
We styled the den off the living room to be a cozy library/man cave. We set up a little bar area on an antique marble top table and styled a bookcase with an ample amount of books and interesting antiquities. A wingback chair and tripod lamp increase the cozy factor. We put a neutral sisal rug underneath it all.
A French advertising poster brings rich color into the room.
A decoy duck was the perfect touch.

The master bedroom’s traditional four-poster bed just needed to wake up a little. Red lamps with curvy bases, natural baskets under the bed and a fresh color palette add just the right modern touches.

The second bedroom was treated to a soft color scheme of white, gray and gold.
A French Provincial style dresser inspired the choice of the Eiffel Tower print.
The nicely remodeled bathroom needed only a few accessories.
We put a black pedestal table and ladder back chairs into the breakfast nook and styled the tabletop with yellow, white and black dishes and pottery.
