I’ve always been grateful for the quality of clients I’ve kept company with in my real estate biz. They’re invested in the process. They’re smart. And they share my sensibilities about home ownership and what that means to our sense of safety, self ,and stability.
Of course, 99% of my clients also share my sense of ha-ha, which is kind of a requirement to work with me. =)
One homeowner has recently made me extra proud. With a little staging advice from me and a lot of ingenuity on her part, she has staged her adorbs little bungalow to near perfection. I was particularly impressed with a wall grouping of mirrors she installed in her living room. It’s such a great idea because the mirrors are inexpensive, bounce gorgeous light all over a relatively small space, and are not as personal (read: weird!) as family photos.
What you need to do your mirror wall grouping:
> 8-10 small framed mirrors (circles are best because they won’t go crooked when someone slams the door)
> hanging hardware or picture hooks
> flat surface for tracing (Yay! Just like kindergarten!)
Trace your mirrors on paper and cut out the shapes. Tape the shapes to the wall in the desired arrangement. Move the pieces of paper around and re-tape until you’re happy. Try to keep the grouping tight but as “random” looking as possible too. Make a mark through the paper onto the wall with a small nail. Take the paper off and hang your mirrors as indicated by your nail marks.
