This small living room and kitchen floor plan is typical of many Minneapolis area homes.  We start with a fresh coat of paint in a soft linen color for the walls and a crisp white to highlight the trim.  Outdated furniture is replaced with modern but comfortable chairs much more suited to the space and to the younger audience likely to be looking at this home.  Taking out the area rug reveals the beautiful hardwood floors and also helps to open up the space.  Heavy, dark curtains are replaced with a sheer window scarf that frames the large window and allows more natural light to flow into the room.  A large silk plant and pair of lanterns are placed on the upper ledge to draw more attention to that architectural feature.  One bar stool was removed, and place settings for two are added to make the counter area an inviting dining spot.  Removing the items from the refrigerator gives the kitchen a clean, uncluttered look.  The result:  an open, inviting living room and kitchen that is staged to sell!
