We received a call from this client after they had gone out and purchased all new furniture from the Nebraska Furniture Mart. They realized once they got everything home that they were stuck and needed a little bit of guidance on how to finish up their space. Owner and Principal Designer, Joy, was able to help spice up their living room and kitchen with just a few additions of artwork, pillows, and accessories proving that a little bit can actually go a long way. The homeowners weren’t too keen on blocking even an inch of their beautiful natural light with curtain panels, so Joy had to get creative to bring in color and texture in other ways:
A beautiful decorative mirror can make for a great focal point. Scroll over the photo to see the “before” photo.
If you’re thinking about using just a few key pieces to accent your furniture, make sure that you add a punch of color.
A pretty ceramic-base lamp has dual functionality – as a light source and as a piece of decorative art!
Assorted textured decorative balls make a great focal point for the coffee table.
Instead of hanging one larger piece of artwork, try a symmetrical grouping of smaller pieces. It can have just as much impact. Scroll over the photo to see the “before” photo.
You can never go wrong with a personalize family photo gallery. Having trouble figuring out how to lay it out? Put a piece of butcher paper on the floor and arrange your pictures on top of it. Mark where the nail holes for each item should go, and then tape the butcher paper to the wall. Use the marks to place your nails in the wall. Once they’re in place, tear down the paper, and you’ll be easily see where to hang your pictures!
