In styling a photo, there are various approaches possible. Most commonly, we scrounge through the available items and hope for the best. But another approach would be to bring a set of items in anticipation of each shot, taking into consideration the desired result. The ideal approach, however, is to identify and work on propping the day before. That way there's time to acquire the items that may be missing for your desired look.

Awesome article! It's always a pleasure shooting a space that's been carefully thought about. Really like all the tips in this, except maybe the adding a TV show to the TV screen. I feel that might make the image too subjective or distract from the room itself.
