Have you ever flipped through a magazine and thought, "That's it!".
You finally see the look you've been seeking, but where to begin?
Begin with a focal point.
We all have a piece of furniture or a rug that we love, but we can't
seem to make it work in our home. Don't give up! If you love that
beautiful Persian rug, use it as the anchor for the decorating scheme
of the room.
Inexpensive accessories can transform a room.
Sure, we've all heard that adding decorative pillows or a new lamp
can change a room's look in a moment. It's true! Your Persian rug
will benefit from the trim on your pillows that pick up the rich
reds and golds in the rug. A little can go a long way.
We all get stuck.
If you reach a point where you are contemplating a big change in
your decor, it often helps to bring in a designer. The costs involved
can actually save you money in the long run. That bold paint color
you thought would be perfect may prohibit you from using your adored
Persian rug. See our article on paint
colors for some great tips.
Finally ... use your imagination.
Decorating should be fun and it should be a creative outlet in an
otherwise structured world.
