There's nothing like changing your office surroundings to give you a fresh take on life. I took a plain white box and added an accent wall of warm tan, a cloud-shaped IKEA Galant desk, a white IKEA Expedit bookcase, and several organizational and decorative elements to warm up my work zone. Next step -- art on the walls and two guest chairs in a Kelly green to liven up the space.

Pomegranate Interiors is in the process of planning for a possible home staging project, and here's the first Mood Board. It's a ranch-style home with traditional touches, such as walls of French windows in both the living and family rooms. The master suite in this staging project is very large and the homeowner has some lovely English antique oak furniture that we will be designing around. A large ornate king-sized bed is softened with black and white damask. Taupe curtains and a geometric pattern rug split the color difference between the wood tones and the dramatic black and white. An antique writing desk is modernized by the addition of a white lacquered Asian motif chair, while bright green pillows add a pop of color.

In the living room we plan to work with the homeowner's existing dark blue sofa and traditional medium-toned wood furniture (which we have to keep in the room), to create a warm, beachy ambiance with pops of red, cream, black, blue and white. A blue-striped slipper chair coordinates with the sofa and makes it all come together. A cozy cable-knit throw in cream, a double gourd lamp, blue ticking-striped pillow, a bold Asian mirror and a bamboo ladder add touches of modern/Regency/natural to the mix.

Pomegranate Interiors just finished a home staging over the weekend. The condo is in Port Hueneme, CA, across the street from the beach, so we wanted to bring in a coastal feeling, with some "green" touches. In the living room, we improvised by creating twig curtain rods to hang leaf-pattern curtains, brought in a coordinating rug, and furnished with strong dark pieces to ground the room. We topped it off with a bright yellow lamp. In the master bedroom, warm neutrals and a pillow that pops top the bed. We brought in woven seagrass rugs and accented a dining table with a cool green tablecloth. On the patio we created a yoga area, complete with ottoman seating.
