DS Tip Of The Week: Express Yourself Through Your Walls

One way to promote relaxation and inspiration in the home is through art. Art is an expression of oneself – everyone sees something different when they view art.

This week’s Steinhafels #DecoratingSolutions Tip of the Week comes to us from Devin Bagdassian, an interior decorator based in our Waukesha store. As Devin points out, art brings an added dimension to a room, and creates visual interest.

She explains, “I love to create focal walls and do the unexpected with a blank wall. Try layering art – people do not expect this look, and it’s a great conversation starter. Don’t be afraid to combine a big clock and art, or multiple pieces together. Design should be fun and playful and should speak to YOU. Have fun designing!”

Go ahead – express yourself through the art on your walls! We post a quick and easy decor tip each Monday. Check in next week for another #DSTipOfTheWeek.

DS Tip Of The Week: Resist the Urge to be “Themey”

When planning an interior design project, you may be tempted to have a theme. Basic rule of thumb–don’t do that! While this can work for smaller, specialized spaces… being tied to a theme can be very restricting.

For this week’s Steinhafels #DecoratingSolutions Tip of the Week we look at ways to make sure you start off on the right foot! Dawn Adamec is an interior designer based in our Waukesha store. She stresses the importance of keeping your options open.

Dawn explains, “Once you lock into a theme you get stuck with a look. Conversely, if you maintain a more transitional look, it allows you to add and subtract pieces without having to do a complete makeover, and you can continue to freshen up the space just by adding a few items here and there.”
