DS Tip Of The Week: Be Bold, Create Interest

Are you getting ready to tackle a new design project?  Are you the type who likes to play it “safe”?

Well, we’re here to tell you it’s OK to be bold, and take some chances.  Don’t be afraid of color or pattern!!

Get out the notepad and jot down these pointers.  That’s right… it’s time for another Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week!  This week’s tip comes from Interior Designer Samantha Price.  Samantha is a new member of the Decorating Solutions team, and we are excited to have her working out of our beautiful store off I-94 in Oak Creek.

Have fun and be bold, but don’t forget–a little bit goes a long way!  Samantha explains, “A bold chair, an accent wall, or even some wild accent pillows can make a dramatic statement in a room.  If color and pattern just aren’t your thing, don’t forget about texture.  Different textures in a neutral room is a great way to create interest!  Creating interest is what gives a room its character, and it’s an important element in creating a beautiful space.”

Here’s an example of a vignette featuring bold colors and patterns!

DS Tip Of The Week: Bold Bathrooms

Creating the home of your dreams can be overwhelming.  We often put most of our focus on common areas like the living room, dining room, and kitchen… but don’t overlook the bathroom.  That’s right–the bathroom!  Don’t be afraid to have some fun and give your bathroom a bold new look.

This week’s Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week focuses on that little room we all use, but don’t always think about at design time.  It comes from interior designer Beth Kealy, who works with the fine customers at our Menomonee Falls store.

When it comes to bathrooms, Beth suggests, “Ditch the wallpaper and create a bold look with a wide stripe paint application.  Update a cozy bathroom into a fun new look that is not concerned with humidity.”
