Staged homes are almost always graced with fresh flowers and pricey orchid arrangements, but you can get a similar effect simply by raiding your yard.

This contemporary kitchen is the result of a total renovation of the original 1930s space. By knocking down a wall to create an open floor plan, the space became perfect for entertaining. White cabinets and counters keep things looking clean, while modern furniture adds order and functionality.
