One technique that is often used, but rarely understood is home staging. Yes, we all know that there are many experts who specialize in this field—creating spaces, and entire houses as showrooms for furniture companies, or who decorate a home intended for sale. But very few of us know we can actually borrow their techniques and use them in our own houses.

And hopefully you will take some tips away with you, and use them to create your very own sophisticated, stylish and very contemporary abode!

7. Looking to the other side, this plain white box is boring and lacking life.

8. But add a white leather chair and an expensive rug and you have a decadent spot next to the fireplace.
