A few of my must haves that truly make my home comfortable are: lamps, baskets and containers, textiles, personal artwork, controlled collectables, a distinctive sense of style, and a harmonious color scheme. If all of the above items are in balance, then that room in my house will always be attractive, comfortable, and functional.
I like to put lamps in a triangle around a room, that way the light will bounce comfortably inside the room.
· Baskets are an easy answer to containing mail, CDs, movies, or any kind of projects I might want to put away until later.
· I use complimentary colors (colors opposite of each other on the color wheel. Once I find the colors I like, I stick to them when I shop.
· Of course I know what my style is, and understanding someone else’s style is of the utmost important when helping them to decorate.
· Finally, when it’s time for my final touches, I keep in mind the value of balancing, texture and patterns, rough and smooth, shiny and dull, round and square to keep the room interesting.
