So you have made an investment in a beautiful bedroom set, a fabulous living room, or a gorgeous dining room…but does the room feel finished? Most likely not! Placement of the larger furniture pieces in a room is really only just the beginning. The best way to think about the process of redoing a room is to consider phases. With the help of an interior designer, prioritize what those phases are. A complete overhaul of a room, paint and carpet included requires planning. Ideally paint, carpet, rugs fabric and/or leather selection along with finishes should be done in conjunction with one another. While the furniture is on order the painting and carpeting can be done. Once the furniture comes in it is time to add additional accents such as end tables and coffee tables or any other additional secondary pieces, if this was not done in the first phase. Once this is complete on to the third phase, ACCESSORIZING! This is what makes a room look finished and put together. Lamps, artwork, clocks, greenery, bedding, pillows, throws, table top items can continue to communicate what your over all style is. But you can also have fun here and mix up some things. Your interior designer can help you achieve a magazine worthy look, that is all yours, right in your own home with steps at a time.
