 Also, LED lights are a great choice not only for the environment, but also for your wallet. LED bulbs use 80% less energy than incandescent bulbs, which will cut the cost of your electricity bill. Say YES to LED!

Styling Secrets: Mirrors

Think large: For great impact, prop an oversize rectangular mirror on the floor. Doing this adjacent to a sofa or chair will make the space feel larger than it is. This works well in any space, particularly in a living and dining room. 


When small is necessary: In a limited space, grouping small mirrors can make the space feel larger. The reflection captured by the collection of mirriors will add dimension to the small area you are working with. A great space to use this tip could be in a hallway between two doors or even above a bedroom dresser. 


Switching shapes: Don’t be afraid to mix different shapes. Doing this will add variety to the space and make it more fun and interesting. Adding ovals and circles will soften sharp corners of existing rectangular shapes. 


These beautiful mirrors can be found at POTTERY BARN. Also, visit some of our favorite stores for more great mirrors: Ballard Designs, West Elm & Restoration Hardware

Color – Biggest Bang For Your Buck

Color is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to give a room or a whole house new life. Color is a tool that demands thoughtful consideration, so keep in mind….

traditional living room by Julia Ryan*Cool and pastel colors make rooms feel larger and reflect more light.

*Warm and bright colors are visually heavier than cool hues.

Here some things to think about
Choose a dominant color first then add accent colors.  Limit yourself
to 2 or 3 hues in each room.

Lighting used in a room plays a huge roll in how color is perceived.
So be sure to check color choices under all lighting conditions.
A good technique to use is to paint your sample color on foam core
check throughout the day to see how the color changes with the light.
