Houses that are staged are meant to be pretty but impersonal. When it’s your own space you’re talking about, you want it to be a reflection of you and your family. Photographs, family history, personal artwork and other items that bring out who you are, and turn a house into your home. Without compromising the artistic side of decorating, you can weave your own personal story into the decor.
This photo is a simple, but good example of mixing the two. The man in the photograph is a family member getting a haircut while he was stationed in Germany in the early 1950’s. We bought the sign and thought it would be nice to pair it with a picture of someone getting a haircut or a shave, when we came across the family photo. Turned out to be a perfect fit!
