Revamp your room

Revamp your room
  1. Choose an inspiration piece. Every room should speak to you and about you. Your inspiration might be a great canvas painting, a huge photo of your favorite vacation spot, an antique collection of pottery, a colorful area rug, or simply a favorite piece of fabric or quilt.
  2. Choose fabrics around your inspiration piece. Whether you’re covering a sofa, purchasing new drapes or adding the perfect throw pillows, your fabrics should pull together the colors in your inspiration piece. Consider making your drapes from a fabric that speaks to you.
  3. Choose your paint color last. If you bring your favorite artwork and fabric along with you to the paint store, it’s simple to see which shades make your artwork pop. You may want a gentle color that blends with your window coverings and creates one smooth “backdrop” of color. Other times you’ll want to pull a color out of your favorite rug or fabric that pulls the room together like it was chosen by a professional. If you choose a paint color first, you may find yourself endlessly searching for fabrics and art that work with it.

Inspiration

Zebra Print

Zebra print bedding. This called for simpler choices of artwork, lighting and pottery, and a neutral celery-green focal wall.

grandma

Grandma’s pink and green quilt and lime green suitcases for fun storage. The accent wall was then stencilled.

verse

A favorite verse simply framed. Teal paint showcases the modest artwork.

abstract

Modern abstract art. Its simple but bold color called for a neutral fabric and paint choice.

damask

Busy but fun damask wallpaper. This called for strong but very simple accessories and fabrics.
