Everyone is an Electrician

I apologize if i seem a bit harsh, but I just spent 2 days on a remodel project just sorting through the electrical mess that was left by the previous remodeler. He broke every rule there is to break, he even buried a junction box in the ceiling, stuffed with newspaper to support the joint compound he used to fill the hole. In summary if you don’t know what you are doing then please don’t do it, especially with electricity.

Seasonal Design Tips

It’s true that rugs anchor a space, but that doesn’t mean they’re required. Bare wood and stone floors can be just as beautiful. Removing an area rug for the summer months can really open up a room and give a fresh, clean updated look.

Double-sided pillows are a quick and easy change.

Project Budget and Design Tips

I also create selection boards with the furniture your contemplating and fabric samples and color swatches. This allows you to have a complete view of your design plan. This is where you can eliminate or add items. You will also be better able to see how everything matches and which items work better than others.
