I love color. There, I said it. But what color is to me, and how I use it,
may surprise you. I love bright, bold, vivacious colors like lime green and Tiffany
blue. I also love soft, sexy colors like off-white and shimmering, silvery champagne.
Dont be afraid to try color in your space! It can be just along one wall,
the whole room, and also in the accessories. Use color based on how it makes you
feel in the space. For me, calm, warm, and simple colors work best in my master
bedroom, but I love using bold, attention-grabbing colors in my office.
3. Less, Less & Less
Less is definitely more! The very first thing I recommend, before even thinking
about a room, office or home makeover is to get rid of extra stuff. We have an astounding
way of accumulating things, many of which we haven't seen or used in years.
Make four piles: Keep, Donate, Trash, and Maybe. After the first three
are complete, go through the Maybe pile with a realistic vision of the new space
or look you are trying to create... and decide whether some of the items in the
Maybe pile are really Donate or Trash.
