It’s Monday AND the first day of Spring. Time for some #MondayMotivation!! Here’s your Steinhafels #DecoratingSolutions Tip of the Week to give you a burst of motivation!
This week we look at furniture arrangement. Samantha Price is an interior decorator based at our beautiful Oak Creek store. Samantha points out that many people have a tendency to think furniture needs to be pushed up against a wall. Instead, she says don’t be so “pushy!”
She explains, “In a lot of spaces, most commonly the long narrow room, furniture against a wall makes for a real awkward space, with no real definitions. An entertaining space should be more cozy and not spread out across a room. An area rug is a great way to help ground and define a specific space. After the main pieces are placed, sometimes the leftover space can be overwhelming and undefined? An accent chair and a table are always a great solution. It can create a visually pleasing area of interest, while offering extra seating when guests come over! Furniture pieces do not always need to create the look of everyday use. Sometimes the definition of a space within a space can be the eye catcher.”
Here’s a Before and After of one of Samantha’s recent projects:
We post a new, quick and easy decor tip each and every Monday. Check in next week for another #DSTipOfTheWeek.
