  You've remodeled, renovated and refurbished. You've streamlined and polished to glow. You've staged to perfection, the photos are grand -- the home is now ready to show. But...ummm...how are your guests are going to get in? Yesterday I attended an Open House in Marin County, and spoke with the...

  Recently I had the opportunity to stage a bedroom inhabited by a pre-teen girl, complete with bright green walls that didn't harmonize with the rest of the home for sale.
