If you need help to get your home’s interior ready for sale, look no further than Olive + Opal, but when it comes to the home’s exterior, well, let’s just say it’s probably better to turn to a landscaping expert.  And with Spring right around the corner, that’s exactly...

It's no secret that I love coffee table books.  At Christmas time, the women in my family exchange coffee table books instead of presents.  I have stacks everywhere in my house - as I type this I can see 4 separate stacks!  Coffee table books, and books in general, are...

We were thrilled with the responses and feedback from our January: Ask an Agent post.  We work with the best of the best in St. Louis and we were so excited to get different perspectives.  The winter months in St. Louis are brutal but we've seen that the cold has not s...

Jute rugs are a staple in our staging inventory.  They are neutral and natural and really work with most styles of decor.  Not all jute rugs are created equal though!  My biggest suggestion when shopping for jute rugs is find a rug that doesn't shed or trap dirt to dep...

One of the most frequent inquiries on our Instagram posts is where to find rugs.  It can be hard to find the right rug.  Trust me, if you ask my husband he would say that a new rug shows up on our doorstep at least once a month.  That might be a bit aggressive, but I w...
