“I am a delighted recent graduate of Debbie’s Home Redesign and Home Staging Training program. This turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life as well as one of the best weeks of my life! Debbie is a gifted teacher and warm, encouraging person. She exudes passion for her field and makes classroom and field training FUN! I am getting started in my own Redesign business and now have ALL the tools I need, as well as a terrific cheerleader in Debbie. I give my highest praise and recommendation for the teacher and the class!” – Kristin H.

“I knew my prayers were being answered when I encountered Debbie’s five-day course on the internet! I was born to do redesign and staging. Debbie was like my midwife helping me to birth my future endeavors. She helped me through the fork in my road by sharing her expertise and knowledge in this business. Her love of helping others has been infectious and overwhelmingly effective. My heavy seems lighter, and my darkness seems brighter! Thank you for giving me information and advice on several levels. I will always remember the life-changing encouragement given in such a short amount of time.” – Richelle B.

How to Decorate a Coffee Table

Young LR (3)-resizedIn this week’s decorating article, I wanted to focus on the coffee table or any small table and review the elements of design. Clear off your surface and take a look at your room, what colors did you want to accentuate? Now, walk around your home and start gathering items together don’t get too fussy about this process, think of your home as Home Goods and you’re perusing the aisles and pick up things you like. Now, have some fun and put things together into a vignette. You don’t want too many items, think in counts of three for the best balance. Depending on the size of your surface will help you decide how many accessories you can combine. You will want to vary height, textures, and metals.

To assist you, I have put together a video explaining the steps in a coffee table redesign, enjoy!

10 Creative Ideas to Decorate your Bookcase, Cabinet or Shelves

House June 042-resizedToo often I have found when helping someone with their home decorating and redesign; they clutter their bookcases and shelves.  It’s a flat surface that seems to collect everything.  If you can, step back, and look at your bookcases, shelves, or cabinet – What do you see?  If you see a cluttered mess, it may be time to consider a new approach!  Consider one of these 10 creative ideas:

  1. Add Mirrors to the back of built-in shelving to give the wall depth.  Especially great idea for a small room or a room that may need more light.
  2. Add a Graphic Print:  Using a herringbone or chevron print to the backs of a unit can add quite a “wow” factor to your room. This look can be achieved even if you are in an apartment by using removable self-adhesive wallpaper, click here for some beautiful examples from Betapet.
  3. Multi-Purpose Shelving:  If you have a bookshelf that you can change up the format of the shelving unit you could potentially vary the height of the shelves creating openings larger than others. In that space, you could display artwork or treasured items, or it could serve as an area to hold special glasses and a bar area.  To create a bar look, install stemware holders, to hang your glasses.
  4. Color Coordinate:  Could you imagine if you put all of your books together that were similarly colored in piles how impressive that display could look?
  5. To add interest vary the height of the items that you are using to decorate.
  6. Stack books for interest, as well as using them to raise smaller items so that they don’t get lost in the display.
  7. If you want to accentuate certain elements, adopt the “less is more” approach.  Leaving open space allows the eye to see the art piece.
  8. Create a photo gallery using similarly colored frames.
  9. Use a paint color on the inside of the shelf that is a few shades darker than the room.
  10. Group small collectibles such as shells in beautiful glass jars, vases, containers of any sort and use as a feature.
