It’s a new year! Which means the tree has been taken down, the cookies and candy have mysteriously vanished, and you’re eager for a little change. While we probably can’t help with some of your resolutions, we have some suggestions on how to freshen up your living space for 2019.
Our clients often ask if they should do an accent wall. While an accent wall can undoubtedly introduce a bold pop of color, we think there are more effective ways of creating interest.
One way we suggest achieving this is with art and accessories. We all have differing taste when it comes to art, and we usually have specific pieces that are personal and important to us. We think those pieces should be the focal points of the living space, with everything else coordinating around it. When selecting accessories, we tend to pull from colors in the art, selecting items that exhibit similar colors to match or contrasting colors that will help to compliment and highlight the art.
Another simple and effective way to change the look of your space is by adding plants and fresh flowers. We are big on botanicals! It’s amazing how different a space can look and feel when you add a little greenery. Not only do plants offer color, they also quite literally breathe new life into the space! Succulents, orchids, palms – experiment and find which plants work best with the natural light in your space. Or, if you need a little expert advice, visit our friends at Pigment in North Park. They have lots of great options!
