Do It Yourself: Tips to having a beautiful space one detail at a time

Follow these simple tips and you are guaranteed to feel better about your living space, what are you waiting for??

  • Add color to your palette: If your rooms are mainly neutral tones, or one solid color add a few pillows, a colorful rug, or a new chair that has pops of color to update the drab.  A little goes a long way and can make you go from feeling bored to feeling revived with just this subtle update.
  • Reupholster that chair or ottoman that has been passed down through the family.  It may not be in the budget to go out and splurge on a whole new family room set, but by finding a good upholsterer your dreams may just be answered.  (contact me to refer you to an experienced upholsterer in your area ayselewisinteriordesign@gmail.com)
  • If you are someone that has shopped at furniture stores in the past and were sold on a matching couch and 2 chairs try separating 1 of the chairs into another room and substituting in the room with a pop of color chair.  Furniture stores are for the masses, and so there are many other people just like yourself with the exact same furniture set in there home.  By separating a piece and adding your own it really brightens up the area so it isn't so predictable.  (contact ayselewisinteriordesign@gmail.com for furniture ideas)
  • Accessorize your living space.  By adding candles, picture frames, plants and mirrors your space will feel updated and alive.
