WHY HOME REDESIGN?

Home Redesigned

The best compliment a homeowner can hear is how warm a visitor feels upon entering their home!  Are you missing that? Does your curb appeal or entry say ‘go away’ instead of ‘come in, sit down and relax’?  Does the energy of a particular  room make you want to run instead of sit down and relax? That is where I come in!

Have you just moved into a new home and are not sure where to put your furnishings or where to hang artwork? Are you trying to decide on window treatments?

Every room serves a purpose and tells part of your personal story!

Whether I can assist you in with a redesign of one room or the entire house, I will work with you on your budget to get fantastic results. Let’s sit down and discuss how you want those rooms to “feel” along with finding Purpose for each room. You will be amazed at what we will accomplished on a budget that you set!

Would you like your home or office redesigned? If you’d like to schedule a 30+ minute free consultation with me to learn how placement over purchase can change the way you feel about your space. Call me (860)961.6824 or Email me: cchomeconcierge@gmail.com

Home Decorating In The 1940s

1940 Retro Decorating Style

Overshadowed by World War II, home design in the early 1940s was quite creative. As the European designers and artists fled to the United States, bringing many new ideas, development of new designs remained at a stalemate until shortly after the war ended. This was primarily due to material shortages. As production picked back up, people were ready to start new lives, which included Redesigns of the homes, especially rooms that would accompany guests.

Fabrics
Floral patterns were popular for bedrooms, living areas and wallpapered bathrooms. For the kitchen and dining room we had cherry or apple motifs, gingham, or checks, with roosters and chickens. I am still loving the roosters!

Furniture
While primarily mix with the 1950s, it was the 1940s that introduced chrome dinette sets with Formica tabletops, as well as glass drawer pulls, and chrome and vinyl stools, into the home. Bentwood furniture – made by soaking or steaming wood and bending it into curved shapes and patterns – were coming into fashion.

Flooring
Linoleum – especially in bold geometric patterns – was top choice for the kitchen. The material was strong and lasted many years, despite the fact it required lots of regular maintenance to keep it clean and shiny.

New Technologies
The 1940s brought to market the wooden radios and phonograph consoles, as well as fabric covered televisions to add luxury to a room. Families would often sit together to hear or see shows with their fashionable TV Trays (my grandmother bragged that hers had wheels), and guests would be included for momentous events.

Colors
The decade was riding on the edge of two primary color palettes. Art Deco – included the ’20s through the early ’40s and reflected a shift to lighter and brighter, more neutral shades with metallic undertones. Pastels were a huge favorite for home interior decorators.

Overall Look
While the mid- to late-1940s introduced many new design concepts and materials, most households still kept it simple when it came to the overall look of a room. Primary focus was put on the family – open space was key. Even in modest homes, updates were often made to “enliven” the look in the home turning the focus from wartime; sad and dark rooms to peacetime; happy and colorful interiors. Clutter-free was key, even in family rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms as everything had its place. Living a free and simply life with clarity and purpose . . . That’s the Life of The Successful!
