What Are You Doing This Weekend?

Placement over Purchase Redesign

Imagination is as valuable as a big budget when it comes to transforming your home.ย 

Below is a list of how I can help you with your Redesign Project.

Room Redesign:

  1. We start off with a tour of the space/room to be redesigned
  2. We assess the accessories and decor within the space
  3. I prefer โ€œplacement over purchaseโ€ – itโ€™s going shopping in your own home
  4. We put together a plan of action that can be started immediately
  5. If we need to purchase any items (paint, brushes, etc) we’ll do it before the project gets started
  6. We will start with removing all items from the space
  7. I do a deep clean of the space
  8. We start with our plan of putting items in their new homes
  9. We assess the space to see if it reflects the purpose and style we are achieving for the space
  10. Finalize with finishing touches to make the space your own

What room should you redesign next?

****************************************************************

Grace Notes:

  1. Use what you have decorating is easy and very economical and smart! The biggest thing holding us back is ourselves! We sometimes need to think out of the box a little and be willing to take a chance and learn something new.

     2. First of all it is most important to know which things in your home will look great used in new and fresh ways and which items wonโ€™t. This will be different for each of us.

     3. Hereโ€™s a rule of thumb from the Pros, the larger the item and the more of a focal point it is the harder it is to use if it is outdated or worn out. If it doesnโ€™t fit into the style youโ€™re after, get rid of it or move it to a new place where it can be centerstage.

     4. Paint is my โ€œmagicโ€ of choice when it comes to updating and refreshing decor in my home I want to give a new life to! A chair, clocks, a table, a pillow (yup!), legs of soft furnishings, curtains, buffets, garden stools, mirrors, coat racks, and more! 

   5. How about taking a piece of furniture or an accent from one room to another? I do this a lot! Especially with accent tables and chairs. I did this method with some lamps I have had for a while, my husband commented on the new lamps – I said โ€œno, we have had them for over ten years, theyโ€™re just in a new HOMEโ€.

 *******************************************************************

Spruce up your home for free with these easy redesign ideas.

1. TURN A STOOL INTO A SIDE TABLE. – Repurpose a seat into a handy stand, perfect for pulling up alongside a sofa or easy chair. Try one on its own, or cluster a few (even varied heights work). And remember less is more!

2. CHANGE YOUR CHAIRS. – Matching dining sets can feel humdrum over time. Trade a couple of seats from the kitchen with ones in the dining room.

3. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OPEN SHELVES. – Pull out your pretty pitchers or patterned plates and arrange them to be admired.

4. REARRANGE LAMPS AND SHADES. – Swap a bedside lamp with one from your desk or the living room, or simply switch the shades for a different look.

5. REDO A WHOLE ROOM. – Play around with your furniture configurationโ€”reposition a sofa, rotate a rug, or try dividing the room with an open-backed bookcase or storage unit. 

6. THINK CREATIVELY. – Use a glass jar as a vase, group ottomans as a coffee table, or try a pretty basket to hold a plain planter.

7. RE-STYLE YOUR BOOKSHELF. – Since messy shelves can make an entire room look disorganized, pretty yours up.

9. BRING OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS INSIDE. – Wicker, wrought iron and decorative aluminum furniture can create a garden-, coastal-, beach- or cottage-themed space inside.

10. ARRANGE UNIQUE TABLESCAPES. – Design mini-vignettes on tables, mantels, or buffets with keepsakes, from china to figurines. “There’s no point in keeping interesting items if no one ever sees them.

Redesign is the art of using existing items in a space to give it a fresh, new, designer look generally without having to buy a thing.ย

Happy Friday!

Okay, it’s going to be snowing here in the Northeast this weekend . . .

What a great way to spend a snowy day than to think about redesigning that bedroom down the hall that was once your son’s bedroom… he’s now living in his own home. You have been daydreaming about having a space where you can do some sewing, crafts or, just read a book or journal.

During the weekend, go through your home design magazines – as you go through them once you’re done toss them out. Take all your clippings and put into a folder – during the next few weeks of winter use the clippings as inspiration to draw up a redesign plan for that bedroom.

If you need assistance to help you put it all together, call us we’re here to help make ๐’š๐’๐’–๐’“ ๐’”๐’‘๐’‚๐’„๐’† ๐’Ž๐’‚๐’•๐’•๐’†๐’“.

What Can You Get Done In a Weekend?

You would be surprised with a Vision & Plan!

This all started with Pinterest, a vision and a plan. We made a list of the items we would need, and even with a list and notebook . . . what do you know? yes, a few extra trips to Lowes too!

We kept on track with what we wanted to complete each day – we basically zoned the project in half. Knowing where you want to end each day makes it easier to plan where it’s best and more productive to start.

So, remember with any redesign project starts with a few tools:

  • A vision
  • A plan
  • A notebook / pad
  • Measurement & placement notes

Peace Harmony & Rock the Redesign!

Simple & easy tips below โ†“โ†“โ†“

This First Step Is To Know What Style You Passion . . .

Once you know the style you are going for, the rest is fairly easy – the shopping, measurements, placement, and so on . . . Sometimes you have more than one style that you love, that’s okay I like to incorporate the styles by color, texture or pattern something that will make the eye flow through the room – not keeping making pit stops.
