After the hoopla of the Holidays is over, and the decorations are put away, what are we left with? A house that suddenly feels bare and unwelcoming inside, and grey skies, cold and gloom outside. That’s no good folks! Plan now for a Pick-me-up Program for your house and have what you need on-hand to smoothly transition into an uplifting new look. With a few well-placed hints, you might get everything you need as Holiday gifts!
Color is the key… embrace it, don’t fear it! No matter what your décor is, there’s always a bright color that can be added for that exuberant pop. It’s like an instant face-life for the room. Like many of my clients, I do gravitate toward neutrals often, and neutrals from top to bottom can be a wonderful thing. But, the dead of winter is not one of those times, and it’s great that a neutral décor can also serve as ambien cr dosage the “blank canvas” backdrop for whatever accent color perks up your spirit. Because most of my clients are somewhat reserved, I have to do some convincing to get them to upholster dining chairs in a bold green fabric, try a piece of red/pink furniture in their living room, or go for an indigo blue headboard. But once they see it in context presented in a sketch I prepare, most people really “get it” and are very enthusiastic. In addition to furniture for color splashes, I also love quirky accessories! I never overdo it, but I also never finish a room without at least one bold statement piece; if it’s a treasure that emphasizes the client’s personality or interests – even better! You can find amazing deals for these special additions on Etsy, EBay and Overstock, but the most stunning usually come from my “to-the-trade-only” sources. Color makes us happy and banishes Winter Blahs. Give it a try. Don’t Fight the Bright! Call me for back-up if you get….. cold feet!
