From selecting furniture, experimenting with paint, and positioning art, there are many decisions that go into styling a great space. Here are a few tips from our design team. 

  1. Have a clear understanding of how you intend to use the space. Preselect any electronics so they can be incorporated properly into the design plan.
  2. Keep upholstered pieces neutral and introduce color and pattern by using art, pillows, area rugs and accents. New colors can easily be introduced later to keep your design looking fresh.
  3. Consider a new layout, don’t just push everything against the wall. Moving furniture slightly inward will create a more intimate conversation area.
  4. Edit, edit, edit. Choose a statement piece and work out from there. Don’t crowd your space with too many accessories.
  5. Having difficulty visualizing a proposed design. Layout the footprint of pieces you are considering with blue tape. This works wonders while leaving no residue behind on walls and floors.
