Everyone is talking about Home Makeovers! I agree, this is an exciting topic… but where do you start? I’ve come up with a few Pro Tips:
Establish a Color Theme
For a head-to-toe makeover, the first step is creating a palette. I come up with a basic color scheme for the whole house, and then I take that from room to room. I always have my client come up with their “pop” color before I cam over for their consultation.
Splurge on Your Couch
Don’t postpone a makeover because of messy kids. I recommend spending money on your couch and budgeting on the accessories and fillers. The couch is a big focal point in your family room / living room. This is an area of home decor that really needs to be considered!
Choose the Correct Curtain Length
For classic side panels, you really have to go all the way to the floor, If are working with ready-made drapes, make sure that they touch the floor, even if you have to buy the next size up and have them hemmed.
Mix the Metallics
Metallic finishes already add plenty of sparkle, but the sheen will make a bigger impact in a variety of colors. Mixing gold and silver is not only acceptable today, but they’re smart together. The key is to use a lot of both; you can’t be shy with one or the other.
Hang Mirrors Strategically
Mirrors are great in just about every room in the house, as they make the space appear larger. When hanging your wall mirrors, think carefully about what they’ll will reflect.. You want to pick up a great scene, like a pretty chandelier.
Pile on the Pillows
One pair of pillows always looks skimpy. Use two pairs, in contrasting patterns, colors, and textures. Surprisingly, this can add a lot of dimension to your overall look.
