Add-on’s, renovations, and new construction homes can seem intimidating to take on. How do you even get started? How do you find and manage contractors? What surprises should you anticipate coming up? How long do these things take?

In this podcast, you will learn all that and so much more!

What you will learn from this episode: 

  • How to properly hang curtains

  • Benefit of art on your walls

  • How to remove static from a room, and create rhythm

I’ve been getting a lot of inquires about decorating lately, and in fact, I do a lot of decorating. I really enjoy that aspect of my work!

There are typically 3 categories that I find when I go to someone’s home that they could improve upon.

First, there are the windows and window treatments. I know there is a hot debate right now over whether to curtain or not to curtain. Don’t hate me but I love curtains. I feel it brings warmth and personality to a room, and actually draws your eye to the window and therefore outside and beyond.

What I typically see and what is easily improved upon with curtains are undersized. Whether it’s the wrong length, width, and fullness, or all of them. What I see most people do, is put their curtain rod at the top of the window. I will be walking you through where to hang them and why hang them there in today’s episode. 

The second thing I see, and I have mentioned this before, is bare, naked walls. It absolutely leaves a house wanting. No matter what. It just looks unfinished. This does not mean go out and buy the most expensive art there is. Buy what you love! Any kind of art that makes you feel good. I promise it will feel so different in your room if you get rid of naked walls. And don’t be afraid to move your art around. I see zero downsides in art. It brings warmth to a room and shows your personality and style. 

The last one I see is the furniture is all on the same level. What do I mean by that? You need a little rhythm in your space to have it interesting. If everything is all one level, the same height, it causes it to feel static. You want to give the eye something to look at, not look over. Besides height, you can do this using color. So I’m giving you some tips on how to get this. 

These are the tricks I use, as well as other professionals use, and hopefully, you will now be able to look at rooms differently after listening to today’s episode!
