COMMENT OF THE DAY: HOW STAGING SELLS HOUSES “Reminds me of house shopping a couple years ago. We were looking at a house in Brenham, as a weekend home. Pretty normal decorating scheme, until we got to the master bedroom. Purple walls, gold trim, lots of dangling gold items from lamps and headboards, pillows everywhere, a purple & maroon shag carpet–my wife & I looked at each other, and both mouthed “New Orleans whorehouse” to each other. . . . We ended up buying the place!” [SH snooty, commenting on Remembering the Purple Bedroom of Her Teenage Years]
