I can't believe this is the last day!
I'm happy and sad.
I've enjoyed writing and sharing this series,
but I'll be glad to move on to some other topics.
And I'm sure that some of you will be glad to read about
something other than staging!
This post took much longer than the others
because I got some fantastically awesome queries from you all!
And I answered every one of them.
Here are the Q & As you've been waiting for, homemakers
(you may want to take a nap afterwards! this is a long post):
Q: Can you stage your house even if you are not planning to sell? Is it possible to live in a staged house?
A: If by staged you mean clean, maintained, simplified, kept in like-new condition, and up-to-date, then - yes, I absolutely think that we can and should at least try to maintain our homes, be content with what we have been given, and avoid trying to constantly acquire more before tending to what we already have. It is not only possible to live in a staged house, it is ideal. Why should we wait to have a simplified, beautiful home, only to sell it to someone else? Let’s treat ourselves and our homes to the best that our spaces have to offer us!
