I am always looking for ways to bring beauty into my home on a budget. A lot of times it takes great imagination to see past things. My friend's say that I have that gift but I think that I am still learning. While reading French Style, I came across these great tips on how to continue my education on creating beauty.
~ Keep it simple if you really want to dazzle. Understatement can truly speak volumes.
~ Look for older items on the street or at markets. You can transform a throwaway into a masterpiece.
~ Choose materials that are easy to use and easy to update.
~ Look at the light in your house and play with color to achieve dramatic results. The use of mirrors can add both light and depth to a room.
~ Utilize fabrics, patterns and textures that match the palette of your home.
~ With collections and relics remember less is more. Organize with a theme in mind to make a statement.
~ Bring natural elements into your home buy employing fresh flowers, large windows and open doors.
