The Decorologist Home Staging Tips on Talk of the Town

Last week, I spent one morning taping a couple of segments of the Nashville-based Talk of the Town television show.

news channel 5

Host Tuwanda Coleman asked me to speak about home staging.  I shared some tips for appealing to the widest audience possible and for making rooms appear larger.  Brentwood Area Homes Realtor Melissa Allen let us use her home for demonstrating how my tips work. When Melissa moved into this home, I helped her choose the interior paint color palette and decorate her new space.

Tuwanda is such a professional.  She’s a natural in front of the camera, but is also an amazingly kind and warm lady.  Mike, the cameraman, let Melissa’s daughter take a closer look at his sweet equipment:

That’s what I get for looking at pictures first and then reading the posts. Mike the cameraman may have started something! I enjoyed having this back story… Read more »

Watched your segment and really enjoyed it. We are listing our house soon and I’ve got a related question if you don’t mind. Up our stairway I’ve got a grouping of seven old photos of parents, grandparent, and us on wedding days. They are b&w or sepia. I don’t have any extra art hanging around (ahem) to replace them and I’ve heard we shouldn’t have boring staircases. Any thoughts about this? Thanks so much for sharing your expertise.
