when we shop for our stock (we have a warehouse space filled with everything , dishes, armoires, sofas,beds, art, lamps etc. we bargain hunt like crazy.mind you, staging is a bit different than interior design. it's a bit of set production but
we employ prop stylist methods such as using same colored books for a color block effect, interesting bits to create a story. we shop at target (that apple on the books) we pull photos from magazines and blow them up (surfer magazine are where many of these are from) i love covering a group of books in an interesting fabric for a blitz of color. i will tell you, overstock.com kicks all ass. the two twin beds here were 150.00 a piece. they're beautiful. simple, low a lovely dark wood. from indonesia. they also area a great resource for sea grass area rugs.
