Original Decorating Ideas

I love it when people think “outside the box” and come up with an original kitchen that screams luxury. These green cabinets and shiplap siding are just the right mix for fun and elegance not to mention the upscale Wolf gas stove. Did you know that kitchens are the most requested item for most buyers? This house would sell quickly.

Mirror Magic

Magazines often feature the most beautifully decorated rooms but they are large rooms and not comparable to our own homes. As for me, I prefer a more “intimate” space.

However, you can make any room look bigger. One way is to use mirrors and reflective finishes, from bed frames to side tables, to create a vista, bright light into dark spaces and create faux doorways or windows, all of which make any room seem bigger.

Mirrors are an affordable and fun way to create space.

Eclectic Style

I love people who have a sense of style without a blueprint. In other words, they just put together things that they love and feel like “home.”
