Designer Stephanie Marsh Fillbrandt with Marsh and Clark is our guest at Home and Living today. We welcome her and we will talk about a recent project involving two kitchens (and we are always happy to talk about the most popular room in the house)!
In your home, upgrade your old kitchen and bathrooms. Bathrooms and kitchens are often the major selling points of a home. Generally, a bathroom that has been modernized can provide over a 100% return, where a kitchen that has been modernized can provide a 90% return on your home.
Reading the information in my room urges me to go on a discovery tour around the special rooms at Vision Villas. I must look for my guide and hostess Renate who has so graciously opened her home to me during this holiday. She has even kept a few of the staff for me to feel comfortable. I feel humbled and grateful. “Guest always comes first”, she tells me happily while showing me her resort.
4) WINDOW COVERINGS: Hang curtains over your window blinds. Some builders provide standard white blinds, some do not. Hanging curtains, whether you have any window blinds or not help in addressing privacy, as well as soften the look of the rooms you’re decorating. Match the colors of your furnishings and wall paint or make sure they compliment each other. Use texture if you are designing in neutrals, so that the room will look more interesting. Some homes have lower ceilings, to give the illusion of height, hang curtains from ceiling to floor. Also if you have a small window, you can give a sense that the window is bigger by hanging the curtains wider than it should, layering curtains with sheer panel underneath can help in achieving this illusion.
All you have to do is select a business card design from the different categories available. Afterwards, you can put in the necessary information for your card such as name, company, position, contact numbers including your mobile phone and email address among others.
The easiest way to achieve these looks is, naturally, to hire a professional INTERIOR designer. This option may be the easiest, unfortunately, not cheap. These builders invest an amount of money to get their houses sold. Hiring an dBodhi to decorate their model homes pays off because the look and feel of the model homes as they were staged by designers, entice people to buy them. Prospective home owners would imagine themselves living in that kind of setting. Unfortunately later on, when they finally get their keys to their newly built home, aside from being empty, it lacks the character that attracted them enough to buy it in the first place. Of course we all know that a home is not a home unless you have lived in it.
Roller Shades are coming back in style — not the kind you remember, but decorative, stylish window dress-ups. By applying fabric to a roller shade, it becomes a beautiful accent to any room.
Lighting is also something to bear in mind when designing your room. The lighting can be from fluorescent bulbs or you can have enough windows to allow more light.
