Are you thinking of revamping a room?

Are you thinking of revamping a room?

How does one start on this adventure? The first step is looking at the room and determining
what you still like and want to keep. The next step is figuring out how you’d
like the room to look and feel when it’s complete. Getting inspired on Houzz,
Pinterest, décor magazines will help you through this process. Clip and save
images of rooms that speak to you for a certain colour, style, or a cool piece
of furniture.  You may find yourself
being attracted to cool blues after years of loving reds and browns.  You just never know, let yourself be
inspired. The best part of course is shopping for the components and pulling
the look together for your space.


 Pick up paint chips
and flooring samples and start choosing your furniture pieces.  The fabrics on sofas, chairs are the soul in a
room so be sure they reflect who you are. Neutrals are great for those who like
to change things up frequently, but if you love geometric patterns, florals,
toiles, why not experiment with them on chairs and toss pillows. Be bold and
mix patterns together to get the designer look.

 Don’t forget to
budget for finishing touches such as lamps, mirrors, artwork and accessories,
as they bring a room to life. Our favourite tip to clients is:  finish the entire redecorating project before
you start working on the next one. That way you’ll enjoy the result of your
hard work and it will inspire you to tackle the next room.
