Had alot of fun doing a presentation at the Farmer's Market on Sunday to an intimate crowd of very interested and captive ladies.
Topics included how to shop your home and utilize what you have to create a refreshed and renewed space, as well as some key tips to live by when ready to tranform any space in your home.
One question from the audience went as follows: "What can I do about a huge rug in a room, should I put it under the couch? It is up against the wall where the couch sits against the wall as well..."
Answer: No Wallflowers! Pull that couch out away from the wall and bring the rug with it, so that the flooring, in her case, tile, will sort of 'frame' the rug and distinguish that seating area....she had not thought of bringing the furniture away from the wall and just had it pushed up against there so long, she figured that was the only way. Not so, by pulling furniture away from the wall and 'floating' it in the room, as well as clustering in conversation groupings adds interest to the room and eliminates large, empty spaces in the middle of the room.
