When staging a home, it is always a good idea to make a small room look as big as possible. The easiest way to do this is to remove furniture and minimize accessories.
In the formal living room below we eliminated the loveseat, desk with its antique chair, small accent chair and afghan.
Moving the sofa made the room look longer and placing the large wing chair in the far corner draws your eye into the room.
A nice neutral color on the wall replaced the pink. It was a nice soft color, but with appeal to a limited number of buyers.
The real trick in a room like this is to go for minimalism, but keep the cozy.
