As the demand for real estate increasingly grows and the supply dwindles, some may think that it wouldn’t be necessary to stage a one bedroom condominium.
Vic Yepello didn’t feel that way and tapped me to lightly stage this condo in Downtown Palm Springs that is set to go onto the market.
I was charged with creating an inviting contemporary space without unloading a shipment of large furniture. I focused on using lightly-scaled and interesting multi-functional pieces that could easily be moved about the condo without much effort.
Large scale art pieces not only add a punch of color. I used one piece to stand in as a placeholder for a TV. Potential buyers are able to visualize how a large flat-screen television would look in the room. Just a little staging trick.

2012 seems to be the Year of the Fig here in Palm Springs. Our ficus carica, can you say common fig tree, is bursting with the fruits of her branches.
Ours are green figs, not the dark swarthy, mission figs, brought to San Diego, California in 1768 by Francisican missionaries and made popular by Alice Waters when she took to stuffing them with goats cheese, poaching them in port or daringly slicing them raw and then topping a melange of field greens with them drizzled with a balsamic viniagrette.
Our figs are summer chartreuse on the outside and creamy white laced with golden cognac on the inside.
After trudging through the sand from Kate’s Lazy Desert, next stop was Looney Dunes. Aptly named as I soon discovered. The owners, Phillip Maberry & Scott Walker, are artists. Their creations are sculptures that appear to be colorful pool floats!
Moored in the desert sand dunes and caught in cactus gardens it is impossible not to smile at their juxtaposition.
You may remember their previous home, immortalized by the B-52′s in their video for the band’s hit song, Love Shack.
Yup, it’s true. And if you look closely that’s an afro-ed RuPaul in the white halter top dancing in the living room!
