It’s said that some of us run away from change while the rest of us embrace it. I think it’s more accurate to say that most of us are in the middle. We embrace some kinds of change while we run from other kinds of change. I’d like to propose a little change in you home his week! Just enough to freshen things up a bit and keep things interested, yet still safe!

Start Small

If I were to tell you you would be re-decorating or arranging your whole house this weekend I would bet 100% that you wouldn’t do it. On the other hand, if I let you know how to decorate and arrange (stage) your coffee table and bookshelf I can almost guarantee that you will do it! Here’s how you can go about it:

Staging Your Coffee Table:

Staging Your Bookshelf:

Be Creative!

Have fun staging your coffee table and bookcase and be creative! Use items that you already have around the house like vases, picture frames, and decorative items. It also doesn’t have to be perfect right away. Play around with your decor and change it around every few days this week until you find an arrangement that you like. I’d also love to see some pictures! Snap a picture of your bookcase and/or coffee table and post it on Mauve’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/mauveinteriors). Looking forward to seeing them!
