5 Interior Décor Secrets From the Pros
You don’t have to spend a fortune decorating your new home in Port Aransas. Instead, you can make the whole house look amazing without breaking the bank.
Interior Décor Secret #1: Choose the Ideal Color Scheme
Come up with the perfect color palette before you get started, says Gary McBournie, Boston interior designer.
“I come up with a basic color scheme for the whole house, and then I take that from room to room,” says McBournie.
Interior Décor Secret #2: Enjoy Your Favorite Pieces
Whether you’re an antiques collector or you have something new you just love (but you don’t know where to put it), it’s a great idea to make your favorites the focal points in any room.
Interior Décor Secret #3: Use Color in Window Trim
Designer Jeffrey Bilhuber says that you can really make a statement with window trim.
“I often end up painting them [window trim pieces] green, to blend in with the landscape. Or sometimes, I paint them pitch black, so the muntins practically disappear in the evening,” says Bilhuber.
Interior Décor Secret #4: Use Mirrors to Your Advantage
Be careful when you put up mirrors. It’s great to use a large sheet of mirror, but you’ll end up making your home look like a commercial enterprise if you’re not careful. Opt for a sectioned pattern if you’re putting up large mirrors, or frame a large sheet of mirror with crown molding that matches your existing style.
Interior Décor Secret #5: Use Texture
You can accent all the neutral colors in your new home by adding texture.
“I used a range—from fine-gauge and open-weave linen, to raw silk and taffeta, to cotton velvet and distressed velvet,” says Ohara Davies-Gaetano, a California interior designer, of a beautiful bedroom in a luxury home.
