We have new and gently used wool area rugs and runners in the showroom so stop by and see what works for you.
(4) Change your art. Add a mirror, re-arrange one wall with a vignette of photos or art rather than one or two large ones. We have a great selection on-line and much more in the showroom. I often recommend DIY art as a perfect way to express yourself and create interest. Be creative with wood pieces, recycled materials, fabrics and more! How about using vinyl wall decals? They are easily added, removed and changed!
blinds, try adding side panels for softness and warmth. This space was made significantly warmer and finished by adding panels to the existing blinds. www.ikea.com has great pairs for under $40. Already have panels? Change them out with a new pattern or to a solid, add trim at the base or sides, add tassels, change the rod or finial. I like to add jewelry to panels and as tie backs. Check our previous blogs for ideas! If you have heavy drapes, switching to sheers will make a big difference in the space. Need blinds? The big box stores sell ready-to-hang and cut-to-fit blinds.
