New Year - New Look

  1. Faux Finishing: Create a new look with a bit of the Old World-add texture to your walls or try some Italian styling. There are many techniques such as the Venetian, Rag Washing, Feathering, Color Washing, Stenciling, Combing etc. each of which give your walls instant texture and color. For in depth instructions just you can pick up an interior décor book or simply google Faux Finishing.


  2. Organize/Sort: Increase kitchen cabinet storage by adding 1/4 inch pegboard panels to the inside of cabinet doors to hang your most commonly used pots and pans, then maximize cabinet storage with recessed shelves.


  3. Remodel/Rearrange Rooms: Want a new look, but don't have the resources? Try rearranging the furniture and accessories in your rooms to achieve a new, inexpensive look! For example, moving your bed to an opposite wall and rearranging the rest of your bedroom furniture accordingly will give your room a new look and feel at no cost.


  4. Hang Pictures: Plan the placement of your art. Place art six to nine inches above a sofa or at eye level. Artwork placed too high appears to be floating; artwork placed too low interferes with headroom.


  5. Add Plants: Use old urns, water pitchers, and teapots as vases. Collectables make great containers for flower arrangements.


  6. Clean Cabinet Hardware: Cabinet Hardware (including hinges) gets dirty. When cleaning cabinet doors, remove cabinet knobs and hinges and clean the hardware: soak the hardware in a soapy solution for 30 minutes, scrub lightly with a soft brush and rinse, let dry and apply proper polish.


  7. Add Accent Lighting: Focus an uplight behind a folding screen to add a glowing accent. Uplighting plants adds dimension and shadow to a room.
