Discover the Decorator in You
By Affiliate Rita Alexander of Chyrisalis Interiors
The trend in decorating today has an eco aspect that is as important to the environment as it is to a well balanced, beautifully decorated room. Bringing new life to the well-made furnishings you already have and carefully purchasing new pieces that will last to begin with will keep you happy and in love with your rooms for years to come.
How to determine when to use what you already have
If your existing furniture has a classic silhouette and is well crafted, keep it. Timeless pieces can always be updated with new fabric and finishes. Adding these changes will make your rooms feel current and new without compromising the timeless look that’s so appealing.
When to look for a great new piece
When the chair or sofa you purchased on sale a few years ago starts to look worn, boxy and it’s uncomfortable to sit on, you know it’s time for a change. It’s perfectly okay to buy down when purchasing accessories and accent pieces, but don’t thrift on these important core pieces. Best to purchase them though a design professional who will walk you through the construction of frames and cushion options, the correct scale for your spaces and have the very best fabric and trim resources available.
