The Home Edition
You’re free! With the kids back in school, you now have time to browse your favorite home inspiration sources. To get you started, here are four ways you can level up the class in your home while keeping it friendly for the mini-me’s who are, um, in class. (Hurray, right?!)
1. The Functional Foyer Upgrade
First impressions matter. Whether you’re preparing for autumn guests or surprise visitors, you’ll be glad you upgraded your foyer to something both functional and beautiful.
If you crave a look that says, “I have kids AND style,” try up-cycling a dressing table. Snag one from an antique dealer and decorate tastefully with a variety of textures and materials (glass, basket weave, faux or real flowers) and finish with a mirror. It’s the perfect place to check your appearance before stepping out and is an ideal holding station for your purse and cell phone.
Need a foyer that does even more? Install unique coat hooks and a cute bench. Complete the look with a pretty rug.
2. The Home Office Makeover
White, black, and beige are the foundation colors for fashionista home offices. Order custom cabinetry, get a new countertop, and hang a chandelier. Decorate your white shelving with breakables (because they’re safe here).
Reconfigure your office layout to hide computer cords, powerstrips, and other necessary-but-unsightly items.
3. The Window Treatment
You know that feeling you get when you step out of the salon? Feel that way all season long with updated window coverings. From roman blinds to dazzling drapes, your options are endless. Ask about the options – I have so many – and I will help you narrow down the best solution for your windows and your lifestyle.
Update your space with some unique statement pieces like a new light fixture featuring bare vintage Edison bulbs, a bright wallpaper accent wall with a bold geometric design, or even a new area rug to add a pop of color.
The furniture layout
Rearranging your living room furniture can increase or decrease the size of your space and have a big impact on the overall vibe. Use this layout graphic from homedit.com to help you determine which new layout will suit your home best.
