Traditionally, pink is a frilly and girly color, but it doesn’t have to be. Depending on the hues you select, it can be modern, sophisticated and luxurious.

You can create most any mood depending on which shade of pink you select, including these delicious hues: watermelon, pink grapefruit, shrimp, strawberry, bubble gum, cotton candy and raspberry.

Take Your Décor To New Heights

20 Feb

Ceilings1

Most of the time, we think about ceilings as just a blank place at the top of our walls. Instead, think of ceilings as a fifth wall that can be enhanced to add character and beauty or make your rooms seem more spacious.

Some changes involve major structural renovations, such as:Ceilings2
– Warm wood beams
– Rustic wood slats
– Vaulted ceilings
– Raising the roof to add a row of windows
– Cutting through the roof to install skylights

For these dramatic changes, you’ll need to hire a contractor (and maybe even an engineer) to advise you and do the work, keeping in mind structural issues in your home.

Other ceiling enhancements are easier to complete such as:Ceilings3
– Crown molding on or near the ceiling
– Coffered ceilings
– Coved ceilings
– Hollow beams that don’t add weight to your home’s structure
– Contrasting paint color, either darker or lighter than wall paint
– Stencils or murals
– Faux paint finishes

Take your home environment to a higher level – and don’t forget about the ceilings!

Transform Your Home With Texture

Adding Texture1

Adding Texture2The look of your interior design is mostly about the sense of sight, maximizing the visual beauty of your home. But adding texture to the equation brings in the sense of touch.
Having a variety of textures in a room adds interest and emotion, provides balance, and may enhance your physical comfort for sitting and lounging.
A room without much texture can be quietly beautiful, communicating sleekness and calm, but it can also become a bit monotonous.

Texture adds a tactile sense to your interior design and wakes up the room. Soft and silky finishes can relax your senses, while rougher textures will energize you. Adding Texture3

Think of these contrasts when selecting finishes for a room:

  • Thick and thin
  • Soft and hard
  • Bumpy and smooth
