1. Paint your windows dark
Darker windows give contrast to light walls and gives a home a huge upgrade. A high gloss black is always preferred, but a grey or dusty dark purple frames the view outside and looks custom.
2. Flowers can be the brightest color in the room
Pick a color and accessorize. Using flowers is nature’s stamp on a warm welcome every time you come home. From fragrant to architectural, a floral arrangement can compliment any design style.
The most important element to any space. It’s what creates the atmosphere of every area in the home. Lighting should be abundant, properly planned and not all decorative. Be practical and use lighting so you can see as well and not just to make a statement!!!
4. When in doubt, re-furbish with paint
Get inspired and transform an old heirloom or questionable piece of furniture with a fresh coat of paint and highlight details to add interest like the gilded gold on this period style piece.
5. Paint your bedroom a dark soothing color
Popular colors that aren’t going away into 2016 are black, dusty blues, dark grays, and chocolate browns. It will help you sleep and creates a decadent and serene space.
6. Personalize and splurge on a great paint in certain areas
Shake up a room with a vibrant paint on a custom built-in, interior doors, an accent wall or furniture piece. Fine Paints of Europe, or Farrow & Ball are great choices.
7. Add layers
Pile coffee tables with books and objects. Accessorize using fashion and travel hardbacks adjacent to sculptural objects, arranged flowers, or candy dishes.
8. Collect artwork, one frame at a time and soon you’ve obtained a collection
Size doesn’t matter just collect what speaks to you and easily you’ll have a collection worth conversation.
9. Books are essential and can be used everywhere
Books reflect education and a good habit that you read and not just for show. Continuing a culture of learning is cultivating and mature. So, show off your personality.
10. Use edible decor in the kitchen
It keeps the kitchen alive and active. A pile of citrus fruits makes for refreshing beverages, or a pastry display that previews your cultural palette.
