Paying attention to often overlooked details can truly change the feel of a room. My clients know that if given a chance, I'll be changing out wall outlets, switch plates, register grills- anything that is boring and functional- but calling attention to itself. It makes such a difference, to clean up these little bits of distraction to the eye.
3 years ago today, ARD became my full time, one and only career. After years of helping friends, and friends of friends on the side, I quit my day job in TV and committed to my own passion for interior design and a vision I had for my life. It was terrifying - the biz part, that is. The creative part has always felt like home, but that is such a small part of working for yourself. With the support of family, friends and clients, and clients who've BECOME friends, I've been blessed more than I can say. Thank you all, and Cheers!
Ingenious, not to mention cute way to hide and contain litter.
Personally, am not feeling it...
Painting trim the same color as a wall is a traditional and effective way to create a peaceful and airy space by making ceilings seem higher and simplifying things. I love it to get away from the look of white outlines around everything- a standard treatment but not always restful to the eye. Especially good idea for bedrooms, to allow furniture or art take center stage or if your trim is not that interesting.
