Are you trying to sell your home? Tips on How to Bring Out The Best in Every Home!

What engages you about a space?

Was it the Colors? Floor Plan? Lighting?

1. When a buyer enters a home Color is the first element that the eye registers. One of the most cost effective changes that can be made is through paint color. How do you choose the color to paint?

Design tools for choosing a Color palette:
Use a piece of art or an interesting area rug for the inspiration of your color palette.

Trend watch one color several shades.

2. You can’t change a floor plan but you can enhance the floor plan you have! How can you create an easy to navigate furniture arrangement and a sense of discovery for each room?
Design Tools for a floor plan:

Focal Point: The first wall you see upon entering a room, or the wall facing the room's dominant flow of traffic. A focal point is a center of interest or point of emphasis in a well-designed room. An element that draws your eye to it.

Rhythm: is the repetition or alternation of elements, often with defined intervals between them. Rhythm can create a sense of movement, and can establish pattern and texture.

Balance: It is the arrangement of the objects in a given design as it relates to their visual weight within a composition.

Proportion: Is the comparison of dimensions or distribution of forms. It is the relationship in scale between one element and another, or between a whole object and one of its parts.

Trend watch less is more. Be bold. Simplify.

3. You can have a fabulous floor plan and great paint colors but poor lighting and none of your design elements shows up! Lighting gives the home drama and accentuates the positives!
Design Tools for lighting: Create pools of light. Not an all over highly lighted home.

Trend watch interesting decorative lamps are becoming works of art! You can update a room immediately with some of the new high design table lamps.
