Refresh the look and feel of any room with our tips from the designers at La Maison Interiors in Scottsdale. We have great ideas to ‘spring clean’ your interior design in any room of the home. A great way to add a fresh look is to change out pillows with lighter fabrics and less dense patterns and textures. if you begin with a neutral base choose vibrant colored pillows that make a statement and inject color to your aesthetic. Chang out dark, smoky, warm colored pillows to cooler shades of blue, green and yellow
Remove heavy drapery from living and dining rooms to let in natural light. Curtains that do not allow light to bleed through appear drab and take away the organic beauty of a room. Curtains also make a space feel smaller and confined, show off those tall ceilings and gorgeous windows this spring! If you are attached to curtains, choose a fabric that is sheer, light and flowy. The lighter the fabric, the easier it will be achieve an airy aesthetic.
Accentuate the existing fabric in a space with a contemporary art piece in a refined frame. Remove heavy frames with too much depth. These types of framing choices appear old and too traditional. Opt for clean, smooth and refined lines. Choosing the right frame is the trickiest part, as the one you choose should match the art itself, but appear cohesive with the aesthetic of your space. If you’re an avid art buyer stray away from darker colors this spring, and go with cool and vibrant pieces that stand out.
Follow the rule of threes and fives when grouping accessories together. Think outside the box, literally and choose soft, organic lines to decorate your coffee or occasional tables. Always group accessories in odd number to avoid splitting items up into even groups. 5 small accessories in a bright color adds more value to your kitchen counter island than two larger objects.
