Think of room or space you are decorating as a human body. (This analogy isn’t new, or particularly brilliant, but helps to illustrate point.) The human body has a basic framework or skeleton. That skeleton serves as base upon which all else is structured and built, until finally a desirable end product is achieved in human body form.
When decorating a space, “skeleton” consists of walls of space along with basic pieces of furniture that have been chosen for room. Beginning with these items, using them as your base, you continue to build your décor layer by layer, until you reach your final, desired product.
By cleverly adding accessories to basic framework of your design plans, you embellish your color scheme, and ad texture to your design so that it becomes three-dimensional. In doing so, you are able to achieve a complete and desirable transformation of space. The neat trick to this is that by simply changing your room color and accessories, you have created an entirely different space from one with which you started.
A new lamp, decorative pillows, re-framed artwork, colored vases, new fabric. All of these can be used collectively to infuse your interior decorating, bringing different elements of your décor together. The end result is that you breathe new life into your interior design.
So welcome Spring without trepidation. Embrace opportunity to create something new and different. You never know. Other wonderful changes may follow. What are you waiting for?
