A 'gentleman friend' of mine recently commented that he enjoyed reading my blog because I spotlight affordable items. This was great to hear on many levels (and not just because the source is so darn cute), but primarily because staging is all about maximizing the value of your design dollar. After all, the goal is to profit from selling your home, not just make it look pretty!
So, in keeping with my goal of highlighting the best affordable decor options out there, here's the second in my series "10 Best". This time I went with ottomans, not only because they are incredibly versatile for staging purposes (they can function as coffee tables, flank a bed, and even offer additional seating), but because there are so many stylistic options out there. So, whether you live in an urban condo, a country farm house, or are part of the normal suburban sprawl, here are super stylish ottoman options for any budget!
