QUICK FIXES AND FRESH LOOKS… Is there a design or decorating objective or project taking residence in your mind’s eye? Does HGTV leave you spellbound and daydreaming of the possibilities? Do you enjoy perusing magazines or the web for ideas? If yes is your answer to any of these questions, you’ve got plenty of company!
You may have ambitious plans that involve an addition or renovation. Or would you like to make some quick and relatively easy changes or fashion a fresh look? Perhaps you’d like an update before putting your home on the market. With some creative analysis and strategizing, there are clever ways to maximize the space and assets your home already has. Many dramatic effects and functional improvements can be made without breaking the bank!
Effective and cost-conscious design solutions require setting project clear objectives and, above all, establishing a budget. I always recommend creating a prioritized wish list that includes “have to haves,” “like to haves,” and “nice to haves.” Of course, there’s always “if I won the lottery”! This wish list might be for your whole home, or could be just for one area or your outdoor space. Let the planning begin!
COLOR… The most cost-efficient, quick, and dramatic makeovers are simply made through a change in color. A weekend warrior painting project can transform any space from drab to fab! Color is powerful, and even one wall sporting a bold accent color can do the trick. Strategically placing contrasting colors can sometimes expand the space visually, and provide just enough pizzazz yet not overwhelm. That said, like many facets of design, it’s not quite that simple. Choosing the perfect color for the effect you want can be challenging.
