Home Decorating – Less Is More

Designer Stephanie Marsh Fillbrandt with Marsh and Clark is our guest at Home and Living today. We welcome her and we will talk about a recent project involving two kitchens (and we are always happy to talk about the most popular room in the house)!

Thankfully, there are lots of choices these days. While keeping track of trends is important, you don’t want to be a slave to fashion, at least not when it comes to sofas. But some basic research on the new styles and designs on the market won’t hurt, especially if you haven’t been shopping for a major piece of furniture in the last few years or still think Naugahyde is a good choice of fabric.

Cellular shades have come a long way from their early roots. Hunter Douglas has the best selection and highest quality that we’ve found. There are shades that have internal flaps, similar to blinds, that are encased in sheer fabric. With these, you can enjoy varying degrees of light and visibility filtering — from see through to total privacy. Don’t overlook cellular shades until you’ve seen the latest styles and trends. An added bonus is their ease in cleaning.

It’s TV people… This is entertainment and production companies and networks do not care about on the show, which was meant to entertain and keep viewers accuracy.

Do not reply on the first furniture store you search. Keep on searching for several other stores. Check the different rate of same kind of furniture they are offering. Check the quality of different stores they are offering and then select the best suited one.

If you see yourself inviting people into the office, a sleek meeting table may be more your style. Take a seamstress or d-Bodhi, for example. The space requirement would involve the need to place huge bolts of fabric out with paint samples and the like. The paper requirements aren’t quite as paramount.

When preparing a home to sell, consider some basic landscaping. Lush green grass and flowering plants can be put in at low cost and will greatly add to the curb appeal of the home. The increased curb appeal of your property will translate into more interest and even a higher selling price.

So if you think that your spare room (or any room for that matter) is in need of an update then why not get going and start doing it today? Look for some new futon covers, take a leisurely stroll around the stores for some key accessories, grab some paint and away you go! It really is that simple.
