Photos need opinions.....

First the before photo of our bedside lamp (dh has the matching one on his side)
 
 This is the after photo, I like it and it's big enough, although the stager  said to put a couple of hardback books underneath them to make them higher?
 The girly things I picked up for the spare bedroom.  The stager want's a white flower in the vase.  I am not a fan of the vase so may take it back.  The white thing is a jewelry holder and I think I would be able to use that in our next home and the little Scottie dog is cute.  The stager liked all items.
 The mirror in the bathroom I think needs to be bigger and dh says another colour.  What do you think?  The white things on the corners are the packing as I haven't removed any of the packing so I can take it back if I want to.
Got the back splash in the kitchen tiled yesterday, today is grouting day which neither me nor dh like, but the sooner it is done the sooner it is over with!!

I like the look of books under the base of a lamp - but make sure the books are bigger than the base. I would say a bigger bathroom mirror so that it is at least as wide as your light fixture but I like the black. I am guessing that the rule of thumb is neutral colours for the basics - floors, walls, and then adding a blast of colour through the knick knacky items? I'm trying to learn for when I stage my condo early next year.

I like the new lamp. I do not care for the color of the vase though. You may need something that is more classical I think.

I agree that the mirror needs a little bit bigger.

Staging seems like a tough job. I never sold a home with my belongings in it. This must be quiet the experience for you.

I am not a fan of the pink vase. i think the lamps are high enough myself. i agree the mirror should be bigger but the colour is okay. I am not a fan of the jewelery tree but i am not a fan of girly things in general. i like a basic minimalist house cleared of most knick knacks but I not be your typical buyer.

I am in agreement with Jane on the bathroom mirror -- same thing only bigger -- love the black -- I have a lot of black in my house. I like the lamps but don't necessarily think you need books under them. The color of the vase I am not a fan of but I love the Scottie!

Personally I don't like any of the Stagers suggestions so far. But I am not a "things" person. I like to be clutter free with clear sides usually.

What about hanging the mirror sideways so its wider but shorter if that makes any sense.

I think the books under the lamp would look nice. Also I agree a bigger bathroom mirror, but the color is fine in my opinion. I think she may want a white flower to counter the white jewelry thing.

I just haven't got the knack when it comes to home decor; if it were me I would just do whatever the home stager told me!

I can see putting books under the lamp...would not have thought of it myself. I would want a bigger mirror in the bathroom...I like the scottie dog...and the jewelry thing is fine. Not so sure about the vase...just something about it.
