Home staging tip: When you stage an office it is pretty standard to use books, either on a bookshelf or on the desk. If you use them on a bookshelf you typically stack them side by side, or one on top of the other, however, if you use them on a desk (or on a coffee table for that matter) it is nice to show them open. To do that many stagers use this trick that combines decor to practicality: they fold either three or five pages in the middle of the book in order to create some sort of loops. By doing so, the book not only stays open but it also becomes an original addition to the decor of the desk itself.
