DINING ROOM - BEFORE

BEFORE:  This dining room appears small and despite the vaulted ceilings.  The furniture and light fixture give it a dated appearance.

AFTER:  Removing a leaf from the dining room table adds needed space to the room. A large art print on the wall takes attention away from the outdated light fixture and adds a touch of color bringing out the warm tones in the woodwork. A green fern placed in the corner of the adjacent kitchen draws your eye into that space and highlights the unique opening connecting the two rooms.

BEFORE:  While the colors are neutral and there’s certainly no clutter, this bedroom looks more like a dorm room than a master bedroom. The only thing you really notice upon entering the room is the bed… not exactly a unique selling feature!

AFTER:  Centering the bed on the wall and adding a bedside table makes the space appear larger and more functional. Coordinating lamps add much-needed light, and the bed has been made more inviting with the addition of some pillows and a bedskirt. A soft white blanket breaks up the expanse of brown in the bedspread. Artwork on the far wall gives the room depth. A simple scarf window dressing and coordinating pillows help draw attention to the window seat which doubles as a storage bench.
