Tip no. 1: Move things around. Try using side tables as nightstands, nightstands as sofa end tables, benches as a place to stack books, etc. If you buy things you love, you will never tire of them.
Tip no. 2: Add more lighting. Consider adding table lamps, floor lamps, sconces, or ceiling pendants to brighten your space. Every room should have a minimum of three light sources.
Tip no. 3: Benjamin Moore’s Simply White, OC-117 (Color of the Year in 2016) is always a crowd pleaser. If you want to re-paint a room, Simply White is a fantastic go-to color. Paint the walls and ceiling the same color in a matte or flat finish. This technique makes a small space feel significantly larger.
Tip no. 4: Come prepared when furniture shopping. Bring dimensions, photographs, and any inspirational images. An expert design consultant will have no trouble helping you put together the room of your dreams.
Tip no. 5: Scale is everything. The scale of furniture to a room and to each other is paramount for design to feel balanced and relaxed. Give pieces room to breathe and to be enjoyed from different angles.
