Room make-overs

Level 1: Accessorizing

The easiest way to introduce a 2nd or 3rd color into a space is via

the use of accessories. Soft goods like throw pillows, bath and bed

linens, when coordinated into a “pallette” (a set of repeating colors

around the space) can shift the mood and create a new atmosphere

without changing anything structural.

Check out our section on soft-goods to see what we can do to help enhance your space through ready-made and custom soft goods as well as incorporating art-work.

Level 2: Space planning

Space planning looks at the “flow” of a room. How do people use the space, where is the traffic and where is the serenity-part, and is the furniture to scale for the room. Over-sized furniture, wile comfortable, can really make it a hassle to get through a room. A large dog’s tail needs room to wag. Following a methodical approach in laying out a room while working with the architectural elements of the space (doors, windows) can turn any dysfunctional space into a well-used and well-liked room.

Level 3: Paint and wall-paper

Once you have defined the pallette of the room and the furniture- placement is set to optimize flow, you’re ready to define the “focal wall” for the space. A focal wall holds the attention of the people in the room, and it makes the other walls less noticable / distracting. This creates a more calming, relaxing experience and a room people enjoy being in. Because paint and wall-paper are real work to put in and a lot of work to change, you want to be sure to pick the right ones for your room. CLD’s interior designers can help you pull it all together and avoid disappointment afterwards.
