Home Design Podcast Episode 6- Designing a Blank Space, Guest Heatherinheels
This is going to be a relatively short blog post since I didn't go over a particular design style this episode. The interview with Heather went so well that the Podcast was getting a bit longer than I usually like. Heather from HeatherinHeels.com was great to talk with and has an amazing blog. It is full of so many different interests it's definitely worth checking out.
Tips and Tricks:
Designing a Blank space can be overwhelming. You've found inspiration on pinterest, but where do you start, how do you chose furniture? Here are my tricks:
- Start with the rug, natural or pattern doesn't matter but you want to know prior to buying more furniture. Rug grounds the space.
- Think of what you use the room for. Is it a conversation room? Tv room? reading room? This will make a difference for furniture placement.
- When picking out your furniture look at the lines. are they rounded, sharp corners. an easy way to mix different furniture is to stay with similar lines.
- Last up accessories, if you can purchase a bunch. stage them and return what you don't like.
Featured on the blog this week is the wonderful Heather Travis from the blog heatherinheels.com. Heather was truly fantastic to talk to because she's so open and welcoming. Just like her blog, which is an eclectic mix of her dogs, home decor and style. Definitely worth checking out.
