Until the Sun Goes Down

That is how I feel about the beach in summer. How I feel about my grand children and playing with them until they tire out.

That is also how I feel about decorating, I can do it until the sun goes down. Refreshing the looks of a room or an entire home. Making the customer feel the warmth of the sun on their face as they smile at the results.

It only take a few items changed aroung in a room to make it renewed. It only take a day at the beach to make us feel renewed. So why not take a look around and make it happen in your home, “Decorate Until the Sun Goes Down”.

The Importance of Your Bedroom

Hampton Hill_Natural Instincts.jpg.ashxI love beautiful bedrooms. So many times this is the forgotten room ..the  Bedroom. Should you not make sure this room represents a sanctuary at the end of the day. We decorate our kids rooms, the guest room and forget about “our” room.  Paint the room a shade you and your husband, or just you, will love for a long time. Carefully select the at and the accessories. The lighting a bedside should be dimple for romance or a late night talk. Flowers added tMP_HarlowMaxineMelissaRaylene_ComfSet_SideAngle_White.jpg.ashxo the night table is a nice touch.White bedding offers you the flexibility of adding color where you wish. If you are fortunate enough add a seating area so you can get away when you feel like quiet.

White bedding offers flexibility as does natural bedding. Whether you live a spread, comforter or duvet make sure it is one you will enjoy and spend a few dollars getting what you want.

Make sure the master bedroom is clutter free…there is nothing more unsettling than a bedroom that speak of havoc and dis organization. Make the bed. fluff the pillows so that when you come home your bedroom will say “welcome back”.

34-1This bedroom is from a redesign project in 2013.  The client wished to have an updated look in their historic home. We created the night tables from a bookcase bed, silver leafing the wood and adding marble tops. The lamps were from TJ Maxx, some of the pillows from their old bedding. I ordered the luxurious bedding from one of my suppliers. The mirrors were added behind the lamps. This came out beautifully and not for a “ton” of money. Redesign, repurpose, revamp….revise. Their bedroom was luxurious, romantic, comfortable and totally updated.

So don’t forget your “end of the day’ haven. If you need a little helping hand let me know. Let’s create a beautiful bedroom for you.
