Organization. Clutter affects our emotional sense of well-being. Decide how you live and work to determine storage needs based on lifestyle, hobbies and needs before considering changes to the room or furniture. Eliminating clutter removes a major obstacle standing in the way of good room design.
Furniture. Group sofas and chairs into conversation areas using the room’s entire space, not just areas against the walls. Remember, it’s OK if things don’t match. Furniture color and furniture style are key for blending pieces from different collections.
Painting. Painting can be the least expensive, highest impact change in a room. If painting the whole room a bold color seems daunting, paint one wall and make it the focal point. Hang interesting art on that wall and move a nice piece of furniture there to create a unique vignette.
Plants. Plants always add a breath of fresh air to a room. Those born without green thumbs can try silk plants and trees. These days, the quality of these items makes it difficult to distinguish them from the real thing.
Area Rugs. An area rug is a wonderful way of defining a conversation area. Lay it at an angle beneath a coffee table or try a runner along a hallway to add color and warmth! This is true even over wall-to-wall carpet.
Hang pictures or mirrors. Hang pieces reflecting your personality, family, interests or travels. A mirror will both brighten a room and make it seem bigger. Position mirrors to capture nice views or interesting architectural elements.
Group collectibles. Dust off those knick-knacks. Create a display area and group related objects together, in sets of three or five in varying shape. Rotate pieces from season to season to keep it fresh!
Decorative pillows. This is a no-hassle way to add color, texture and pattern to a room.
Lighting. Illumination makes the biggest difference in our décor. Insufficient lighting means that nice fabric and furnishings won’t be seen to their best advantage. Lamps and fixtures can “age” quickly, but these can be updated to create a bold new look in your home.
Window Treatments. Window treatments can “make” a room. It’s a place to let imagination take flight — the finishing touch that completes a whole look. If done correctly in harmony with the rest of the room, any fabric from silks and trims to a simple, ribbon-tied sheer drape accentuates your room.
