If you are nervous about using bold color in your home, try it on a smaller scale…pick out one thing (like this door) and go bold. There was a time when everything matched but not anymore…people like a little bit of creativity and this is a good place to start.
Go Bold AND Go Home.
It does not matter how much closet space you have in your home, there is never enough. I am seeing more and more people utilize the clothing racks like we find in stores and they are common in homes. If you watch the Real Housewives of New York, it seems like all the ladies have these racks in their bedrooms (except Bethenny). To clarify, I bought one for my house and I am certain we are going to see more of these in the future. It’s an easy solution to a difficult problem. One note…keep them color coordinated like this couple.
Decorating doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, sometimes, it is the most unusual eclectic mix of furnishings that make the biggest statement.
It just takes some great choices to make your home memorable. Don’t go all matchy-matchy with furniture…you want your guests to leave remembering one outstanding feature of your home like this velvet loveseat.
If you have followed this site for very long then you know I have a “thing” for porches. In the South, the porch is an extension of our living space and I love to see the ideas that pop up around the web for porch design. This one is especially beautiful!
I am seeing a dramatic return in the use of wallpaper in homes. If you want ideas on trends…use this page or you can go to Designer Show Homes. You will be a step ahead of the competition!
