February SMART design Tip

Valentine’s Day reminds us it’s time to L-O-V-E your house again! Here are some SMART tips to inspire your heart by infusing R-E-D energy into your home:

Spread the love:  Put heart into your decorating by adding some to your space: heart-shaped pillows, themed artwork or coffee-table books, polished stones or a love-ly heart printed throw for snuggling in front of the fire.

Make a statement: Have the heart to paint it red? Energize a foyer accent wall or the front door. Reinvent an old ottoman, chair, bookcase or red-wash a vintage trunk.

Accessorize with passion:  Select vintage objets d’art that speak to your heart and scatter them throughout your home. A lacquered tray, old books, and tiny treasures will pop even more if they’re red.

Red-Up the Powder Room: Heart-colored red walls will make the room seem dramatic and important. Not that brave? Than pep it up with red rugs, towels, curtains (shower & window) or paint the mirror frame, medicine chest or even the tired sink cabinet.

Trim it: Adding a little red ribbon or fabric can give heart to the over-looked. Trim a lampshade, curtains, pillow, coverlet, bed skirt, towels, window shade – get creative!
