      Pictured above are photos from a 5,000 sq. ft. Vacant Home Staging project by Leslie Olson Interiors, based in Marin County, California.  While the dark olive paint in the empty room implied the function of a media room, by furnishing the space with a comfy, stylish and durable leather seating group facing a flat-screen TV, the guess-work is gone for future homebuyers.  By being able to actually see the scale and proportion of furnishings in the room, as well as keying into the spunky decor, they begin to imagine themselves living in the home.
