It’s time to add your personal touches to truly bring all of your home together. Here are some of our designer tips to make your home exclusively yours!

 

Add Depth

Add Height

All of these tips will ‘trick’ the eye to thinking the room is taller than it actually is. Keep the flooring shades light in particularly short or small rooms. Hang paintings high as well.

 

Add Interest

 

Adding interest to an otherwise neutral room can be achieved with a few key elements and some paint.

Mix one batch of paint 50% lighter than the base and another 150% darker.  Use colors that complement the flooring as much as it complements the room’s décor.

 

Add Light

Don’t underestimate the power light fixtures have as a design element! The type of lighting you use can truly transform a space, so consider your overall design, the function of the lighting, and how you want it to work for you.
