5 Tips to make a BIG Impact in a Room

If you could only change a few things in a room to make the most impact, what would they be? Here are my top 5 changes that will make the most impact in a room. 

#1  In a small room, take a big risk. 

Whether you add color or pattern to the floor, walls or ceiling, this is a way to create drama. 

Add pattern with a horizontal yellow toned stripes in a narrow hall 

#2 Use an unexpected paint color

Punch up the volume with your paint color - Go Bold!

#3 Add Dimmers

Nothing brings more impact to a room than light. Dimmers on overheads and lamps create perfect moods while enhancing the items in the room that matter.

#4  Create a Collection

Grouping items of the same color or type create a dymanic visual impact in a room. Plus it is a great conversation piece. 

Love the candlesticks across the top of these bookcases.

#5 Replace your standard mirror with something more unique

You can use an antique or something more modern. It can be overscale or smaller.
