“Making the fireplace the room focal point, the eye is drawn to one highlighted area.

The mirror above the fireplace framed by pedestal candlesticks adds interest but simplistic elegance.” – Susan George
“So the house went on the market on Monday… [four days], 15 showings and 5 offers later we are sold!! And we got well above our asking price! Thanks so much for all of your help!!” – Nancy DeZutter
“I accentuate a focal point, in this case, the fireplace. Used a mirror to add interest, and removed all lace runners and smaller knick-knacks from the room, and replaced them with fewer larger decorative pieces. Removed floor plant which made the room appear smaller, and added hints of black ( mirror, pillows ) for drama. Removed one end table and lamp to increase space. Added books to the coffee table as an inexpensive tabletop decor.” – Susan George
“I removed clutter from kitchen table and countertops, placed a simple decorative plant on table, remove anything from countertops that was not essential to give the appearance of maximum counter space.” – Susan George
“The focal point in the bathroom was the whirlpool tub, so to make it look more inviting, I added pedestal candles, a decorative mirror, neutral colored towels, an interesting painting, and a garden artificial plant.”- Susan George
