“Like color in your rooms? Instead of opting for brightly colored walls that will quickly become dated, choose neutral tones, from off-white to gray, and then use art on your walls to bring color to the party. We suggest creating a gallery wall by enlarging and framing some of your favorite Instagram photos—a great way to put that new iphone camera to use—like we did for our Marquis project pictured here.”

“The key to revamping your home – to kick off the New Year and a new attitude – is to think outside the box. Rethink how you use a space in your home and make it work for you. Do you only have guests once a year? Then why have a dedicated guest room when you need a home office, a yoga room or a mom cave? Make that space work full-time for you and maintain a sofa bed or daybed for that annual guest. We have to train ourselves to make our homes work for us, not how a builder or developer tells us it should. I turned my old dining room into first my small home office and now my mom cave. Again, focus on the needs you have for a space in your home and that may evolve over time. With the exception of a new light fixture, rug and curtains, I used an existing sofa, artwork I’d collected over the years and just painted all the walls, ceiling and bookcases black.”
