Yowzer, that is one colossal nude painting. I do get it! You enjoy a sexy, provocative painting in your boudoir. She is lovely. But here is the deal sellers, buyers will only be in your bedroom a few minutes. We want them concentrating on the size of the space--not checking out the muscles (or whatever) of The Poser in the Painting.
And, speaking of, it appears you do some posing of your own and enjoy checkin' it out in that big ole leaning mirror facing the bed. I get that too! But, let's move that mirror for selling, eh?
You've got lots of furniture in this small room. All the furniture lines the four walls. We call that "wall flowers" in stager-talk. Something's gotta give: the huge console in front of the bed, the full size sofa, the mirror, the 2 large bedside tables, the chair, or the chest of drawers next to it. This room needs breathing space.
"It's the space between the notes that makes the music."
Of course, we have to leave that pretty bed. But it does need to be tidied up. Those wanky comforters and covers aren't the impression we want to make for selling. (And, straighten that pretty bed skirt while you are at it.)
If you are familiar with Feng Shui, you will understand when I say the dried hydrangeas have to go.
Dry = Dead. Dead stuff is bad Feng Shui.
Dead is definitely not sexy in a master bedroom.
Ring, text, or email me dear sellers. I'll be more than happy to help you staged your $2M master bedroom.

|Lauren by Ralph Lauren|
I was watching an old Oprah and Ralph Lauren interview. She mentioned that one of the first big purchases she made when she started making money was buying Ralph Lauren towels. "NOW I have made it!" To Oprah, Ralph Lauren towels represented "the ideal" of what it meant to be successful.
Yes! Yes! Yes! I shouted to no one. That is exactly my philosophy!
I, too, endeavor to create the dream for people of how they will live in a house. And, yes, while if sounds perfectly OK for Ralph Lauren to say he puts love in his products, it probably sounds pretty cra-cra for me to go around saying it. (I just had a vision of me telling realtors that I am different than other stagers because I put love in my staging. HA! I can see their eyes rolling.)
There is a lot of competition for products and services. I think Ralph has hit 'it' on the head.
The following quote has been pinned on my bulletin board for 20+ years. I am so sorry that I do not know who wrote it. I wish I knew who to give credit to.
