Balancing Your Living Room Furniture Arrangement

Do you ever walk into a room and feel as though things are off-balance?  I do – all the time.  It’s a curse.  As an Interior Decorator and Home Stager, it’s my mission to balance out every room I am asked to design or stage.  Last week, I speed-staged a formal home in Brentwood, TN.  […]
