By no means am I an expert when it comes to decorating. I never took formal classes on interior decorating or read any design books for that matter. I’m just an average girl who loves to decorate and redecorate until I am completely happy with a space. I pretty much learned what I love and what works best in our home by trial and error. As a result, I have slowly started falling in love with my home and thought I would share a few of my favorite decorating tips and tricks.
Check this 5 Easy and Impactful Decorating Tips.
1. HANG CURTAIN PANELS HIGH AND WIDE.
Covering up windows not only limits natural light, but also makes a room appear much smaller. To maximize ceiling height and natural light I hang all of my curtains high and wide. That means the curtain rod is usually halfway between the crown molding and window molding and the edge of the panels skim the edge of the window. If your curtains are currently covering the majority of your window I challenge you to hang them wider. I promise the room will suddenly feel so much larger and brighter.
3. KEEP COLORS COHESIVE IN ADJACENT SPACES
Even though my house is small and doesn’t have an open floor plan I make it a point to keep my colors cohesive throughout the main living areas. My kitchen, dining room, living room and hallway all have the same color palate, which helps our rooms flow and feel larger. I’m not afraid of using color, but tend to save it for the bedrooms.
