March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb…
Or in the words of one of my former classmates, March marches on.
What is it you need in your Tower home? Want a change of color? Stay neutral on the walls and change out art and accessories to achieve a bright new look. I always love going to the market and seeing the fresh flowers with a burst of spring color.
Or, did you just move in? What is your main goal for making this place your home? Do you need new flooring? Look at the cost of doing that, because labor will be more. They will have to take up and haul down the old flooring materials, and that will be many trips, up and down the freight elevators. So, this will be a major investment. Over time, it could pay you back, in the future sale of your home, but you want the intrinsic value to be your enjoyment of the new flooring.
Don’t forget, room sized area rugs, with many different patterns and colors, could help you resolve some of the flooring issues.
Needing a whole room of furniture, or just the right accent chairs? The Furniture Place on 2111 N. Rainbow Blvd., can offer you some great choices. They have great option of area rugs as well and they have fun serving their clients.
I see a lot of stretched canvas art, of many different focus points. Do you want the beachy feel in your home? They’ve got art and accessories for that. Do you want a Mediterranean feeling? There is art and accessories to for those needs.
Wall coverings are making huge headways back onto the design pallet. These are not just those old papers your mom had all over the house. A centerpiece wall in one of the graphic design wall papers, can become a piece of art, on its own.
Don’t forget, this is your home. The wow factor you are seeking needs to be in your desired tastes, so that when you come home, you FEEL at home.
Stone or tile? Wood or carpet? There is so much to choose from. Take your time. Talk to experts who deal in installing flooring in a Tower environment. But don’t be talked into something, just because they say that’s what they installed downstairs or next door. Choose the products best suited to your taste.
Interior designers can help. They are not salesman, they are consultants putting your design first. They color coordinate everything, but a good designer will also incorporate things you bring into the mix.
All in all, when the projects are complete, the house has been cleaned and put back in order, it needs to say Welcome Home, to you.
Have fun with this process. Don’t get burned out by trying to do everything at one time.
Remember that paint on the walls is just paint. If you don’t like a color, change it. I had a customer who lived with dark brown paneling and deep emerald green flooring, until I worked on a color chart, that suited her personality. When we changed all that, she was suddenly an outgoing, fun person. Yes, color makes a difference in how you feel.
