Design Tricks to Make Your Space Feel Bigger  – Lush Decor – September 26

 Karen Mills – International Designer
Karen Mills, Interior DesignerLiving large in smaller spaces has become a huge trend, so we are constantly called upon to help clients downsize from their mega mansions to more functional spaces that still live well. Our first recommendation? Open up rooms to one another and to the outdoors with French doors or windows, along with adding layers of light from ceiling cans and chandeliers to lamps. Also, consider raising ceilings or doors/windows to visually enlarge your rooms.
Next, bring in the same flooring throughout with light neutral walls, ensuring you remove dark heavy drapes, most busy patterns, and extra furniture and decor that can give your room a cluttered feel.
Finally, consider adding built-in storage or seating like a window seat with shelves along with a large lighter rug underneath upholstery and mirrors to help give your rooms a more expansive airy look.

Inexpensive Ways to Brighten Your Home During a Dreary Winter – Lush Decor  interview on January 31, 2018

Inviting spaces full of light and life can often nurture our souls, so if your home feels dreary during the winter season, it’s likely because darker furnishings/finishes are absorbing much of your light.
To solve this design dilemma, layer in some white/off white decor – pillows, throws, accessories, or even rugs against darker surfaces to reflect the light more effectively. Amp up artificial light with higher wattage bulbs and lamps, along with increasing sunlight penetration by opening up hard window coverings, removing window screens and removing dark drapes.
To finish the transformation, introduce a few livelier elements such as white orchids, green plants, and brighter accent colored decor juxtaposed against white accessories to create a sense of life in the dead of winter.
