Three Decorating and Redecorating Tips

Re-cover your existing furniture in a more elegant fabric. Choose from sateen, wool, velvet, silk or cashmere. These are great fabrics to use on sofas or chairs and feel truly wonderful too.

When you're shopping for furniture, look for interesting shapes and curves. For instance, perhaps the curve of a camel-back sofa or the arm of a chair. Adding interesting curves to the mix will also bring a touch of glamor and rhythm to the room.

The mood of a room is important. Choose colors that appeal to you and that fit the mood you want for a room. However, in a bathroom, you want to choose colors that blend with your skin coloring for the best effect.
