Decor Update: Staging to Sell!

I love our condo - but with a baby on the way and a growing toddler it's time for a yard and perhaps some more space.  So because of that, we're getting ready to sell our beautiful home and I've been re-decorating NON-STOP! Here are some updates of what I've done:

I finally found a rug I liked for the dining room. I'm transitioning slowly away from blacks and greys to lighter beiges and whites. It's definitely a process, I wish I could just re-do everything at once but who has the time (or money?!)

I moved the white credenza from under the deer in the dining room to behind the sofa in the living room. Again, I'm trying to move away from the dark pieces we once had to lighter ones to brighten up the space.

I tried my hardest to de-clutter, although I like an eclectic look so I always keep things a little fun and mismatched. I was recently featured on Home Goods Facebook page and got a lot of feedback about de-cluttering. Also some feedback about that silly TV which people said I should mount. I wish I could - it's too heavy and old. Oh well - work in progress right?

I still love that mirror above the TV - it draws the eye up and brightens that side of the room so well!

I replaced our cow hide rug with a more neutral wool - it's definitely helping toward my vision of my next house with no dark furniture in the future.

I finally found a home to showcase my ceramic garden stools - love!

As you can see we pretty much live all in one space. It's been challenging for me with my transitioning style from very modern to more cozy since everything has to live together in harmony. 

My birthday present this year - AH I LOVE THIS BAR CART!!! He lives under the deer where the credenza once was - I'm still not 100% happy with the staging but we'll get there, me and him!

And lastly, a not-too-exciting picture of a cute runner in our kitchen. I have commitment issues with rugs but I'm pretty happy with this little guy.

So what do you think? Are we getting there??? What kind of things are you working on in your home?
