Flip through any magazine today, be it home or fashion related, and you will be bathed in page after page of glamorous, luxurious environments. It is no secret that those rooms do not come cheap Grant-Valkaria Squirrel Removal.
Several years back, as a young designer, a potential customer came to a first meeting with my then boss, a experienced, tasteful designer who’d been practicing for about 25 years. She opened a magazine and introduced a double page spread of a space my supervisor had made about 10 years earlier. She proudly announced that this room represented everything she wanted in her house and she wanted to hire him on the spot. Smiling, my boss asked her if she had any idea just how much the living space, represented so beautifully in that double page spread, price?
Smart shopping, a keen eye and a willingness to roll-up your sleeves can go far these days in generating expensive looking insides without needing to fork over large amounts of cash.
Here’s a listing of 4 Simple Ways to Make Your House Look More Expensive:
1. Large scale artwork adds a little bit of theater to any area. Single large graphics, diptychs and triptychs all provide big effect where-ever they’re hung. Your costs are extremely low and your decorating effect monumental.
2. Who would not like to wrap an entire space in pricey wall covering for this over-the-top-look? When budget will not allow for the entire room, pick one wall or a single segment (the back of a market, or other architectural detail) and make a splash with the newspaper there. To expend the high-style look fit the paint onto the surrounding walls to that of the newspaper. You will be pleased how much the play will go.
3. Every room should have a focus. Fireplaces are gold for just this reason. They concentrate everything in the room. If you do not have a fireplace you need to create attention or direct attention to something else concentrate worthy (such as a view). A fantastic trick for creating immediate attention is a bigger than life mirror, either wrapped or casually leaned against a wall. Hit up your favorite regional retailers for colossal framed mirrors and spend knowing you are going to get a great deal of bang for your decorating buck.
4. 1 High-Style Piece. If your budget keeps you from filling your room with high-style, designer bits then sew one mind-blowing piece and twist the rest of the room . A dramatic cupboard, an unusual antique chair or a super-chic cocktail table may add all of the punch needed even when the rest of the space doesn’t carry the identical decorating wattage. When this is true it is good to dress out the space in similar, neutral colours (tans, taupe and cream are wonderful for this) to heighten the effect of your designer piece.
