From Everyday to Elegant: Decorating on a Budget
An elegant home reflecting good taste and personal style doesn't need to cost a fortune! Discover 8 tips to turn your drab furnishings into fabulous designs.
Choose a Focal Point
Just as many older homes have quirks that you’ll no doubt wish to hide, many homes—new and old—have features you’ll want to showcase. Now that you have become a design expert for free and acquired some color and fabric information—look to the room itself and see what it can tell you. If it is a living room with a fireplace, than the fireplace may be the obvious focal point of the room. Look at the flow of the space and see what naturally jumps out at you, it could be a window or an interestingly angled ceiling. If the room doesn’t have a natural focal point, you can usually find or create one to work with—such as a piece of furniture, artwork, or a beautiful rug. Once you have chosen the focal point of the room, create design and decorations assuring that the focal point is highlighted, not hidden.
