Recycling furniture is often the name of the game in staging houses. As a house sells, I move the furniture and accessories to stage another home. Each home has its own personality, size, and amenities and it's fun and challenging to rework furniture into a new space. Upon the sale of the Parade Home Bandon Model, which was over 3400 sq. ft., there were 2 smaller homes that needed to be staged using the Bandon's furnishings.
In this home, I took the bonus room furniture, added some blue accessories and recycled it into the great room. The coffee table was once brown. The leather couches/chair have a bright red Navajo print underneath and big loose pillows in the same motif. I removed those, turned over the cushions and added large cream linen pillows to give them a fresh updated look.

The powder bath.

The kitchen feature Ornamental Granite, white cabinet uppers and espresso bases, white tile with blue glass accents, and Gray Nuance accent walls. The flooring is a laminate wood that has a handscraped look.
A convenient built-in desk area in the kitchen.

The table is an old pedestal table I salvaged from a warehouse and covered with a tablecloth. The chairs are some old wicker ones I covered with white slipcovers.

I bought a black and white photo book from Barnes and Noble and framed some of the prints in silver frames and hung them symmetrically on a dining nook wall.
Four black and white botanical photos fill the stairwell and are accented by Gray Nuance, a pale blue paint color from Frazee Paint.

I took an old brown bed and had it painted black. (You will see this bed ensemble re-used in several of the posts). This time around I added blue sheets to match the walls. The blue is Blue Comet from Frazee and the Yellow is Sandy Lane, also from Frazee Paint.

I have found that I can reuse black and white with about any color scheme.
I fell in love with these little blue glass 1/2x1 inch brick tiles from DalTile. I had them capped with a white pencil liner from American Olean Profiles collection.

A nice little office alcove at the top of the stairs.

Looking down the hall.

The little boys zebra room and the damask nursery were originally shown against Olive Branch walls and now here they are with Sandy Lane.

The little blue glass tiles, Moonlight from American Olean Legacy Glass, match the paint color in the laundry room.
Here, the blue Daltile 1/2x1" are used as a border on the backsplash.

Very nice. The crisp blue and white square pillows and light give it a Nantucket feel. Very different from Navajo. So versatile. I LOVE the table cloth.

Where can I purchase those large linen pillows placed on the leather couches? They are beautiful.
