How to transform old furniture from out-dated to updated!

A Chair got a facelift

 

Furniture shopping is a long, arduous process that no one is particularly fond of. It takes time and sometimes that time can be better-spent upgrading pieces you already own. For a facial lift in your own home, instead of going back to the drawing board start with something you already have and upgrade it. An old chair can easily be refinished, reupholstered, and its entire look manipulated into something modern, edgy, and quite different than its roots. See the attached pictures for proof of this beautiful transformation. We gave this old thing a metallic finish and reupholstered the seat with a bolder pattern. The chair went from a more understated posture to an eye-catching design. With the amends, we were able to move the chair around the house and into another room, knocking two birds with one stone and essentially reimagining multiple spaces. Editing and altering older furniture not only elevates individual pieces but works as a more economical, smarter renovation of your home.

Everything in Your Room Counts!

Did you know that it is vital to consider everything when decorating a room?  Professional Interior Designers consider the ceiling, walls, floor and anything seen from adjoining rooms as part of the design. Even the view of the outdoors is taken into account in great design! Colors, furnishings, contrast, balance, and proportions are all evaluated when putting a sensational room together.

Many of us notice the collection of items in a room but we may not notice the collection of colors, textures, and shapes. Learning to see all of these key elements and how they fit together in your home is vital to creating a harmonious space.

Are the colors in your custom draperies echoed elsewhere in your room? Is your space arranged so that you pay tribute to the details in your furniture? Are all the room’s elements arranged in a way that your eye is naturally moving through the space andappreciating the beauty?

Balancing colors and shapes throughout the room is an art form that can take a room from ordinary to show stopping extraordinary! An expert eye can make a dramatic difference in a room’s appeal.

Our goal is always to help you achieve an outstanding decorated space that will make a lasting impression.
