Want to give your home a makeover? Interior designer Amber Balstrieri of Amber B Design gives advice on “Why This Works.” Her project, “Project Vintage Gem,” focuses on redecorating your house by mixing modern and vintage items. Here are some tips she says will make your house into a home!
- Use fewer large accessories, instead of using many small accessories. Large, oversized artwork or big table lamps can help make a compact space feel a lot larger.
- Mix light and dark woods and different metal finishes. This way, she says, the room will look like it has evolved over time and gives the space a “collected quality.”
- Textures, patterns, colors, and sizes are everything! Focus on using a lot of neutral colors that work well together. For example, a large area rug with a bold, plaid print adds texture and depth to the room. Mixing that with blues around the room can help compliment the rug, and add more color to the surroundings.
