In this article Nate Berkus describes a technique I love and have been using with my own clients for years.
One of the great things about interior design is that the fundamentals stay the same – the magic is in how you apply your unique decor style and personality.
So, check out Nate’s techniques and tips in his article, and here’s my own client process:
The 6 Tips:
Move things around – Don’t be afraid to re-position your sofa, or swap out a chair from another room.
Shop your home – Walk around the various rooms and see what you might like to bring into your space to change things up.
Redo accessories – That artwork in your den might look great in the living room. Feel free to change out pillows, throws, etc.
De Clutter – We all tend to accidentally collect things. Remove excess magazines, books, and anything that distracts your look.
Add texture & greenery – Add a layer of warmth and nature to your space. Baskets, throws, potted plants or small trees do nicely.
Don’t forget the guest room – That catch all space with the extra bed is also for guests. Decorate it like a hotel space, offering the comforts of home.
