Some of Shelly's Decorating and Design Tips & Tricks

Add privacy to your rooms without installing curtains or blinds. Add some stained glass window treatments. You can go for the real thing, or for a more affordable solution, get the newest, easiest and least costly solution, stained glass or frosted glass window film. View some great faux stained glass examples here!

Hang your pictures at the right height. That means, not too high. People tend to hang artwork too high. You should be able to see the artwork at eyelevel.

For a classic, tailored, uncluttered look, choose Roman shades for your window treatments - and nothing else!

Eliminate clutter. Regardless of your style – from traditional to ultra modern – less clutter ALWAYS looks and feels better.

To do a simple update of a kitchen - quickly and easily - purchase a new set of dishes and/or flatware. What a great bang for your buck on this one! Set your table with these new accessories and people will forget how outdated or old the cabinets and furniture are. And even better - if you purchase dishes with a European country theme, your older cabinets and furniture just might fit right in.



Install lighting dimmers where possible. Not only can you save energy and therefore money, but you can set a great mood any time you like.

Have fun with an armoire or cabinet. Paint the inside a different colour than the outside so when the doors are open, you get a new and different viewpoint.




Themes are great in kids rooms. Have fun with themes such as a nautical or racecar theme for a boy, or flower power or princess theme for a girl.


Match your walls to your furniture and not the furniture to your walls. This could be a costly mistake. Furniture costs much more than a coat of paint.
Treat your outdoor spaces like another space to live in...so, decorate it! Get some great outdoor furniture and accessories for your backyard, porch, or pool area - Shop for Outdoor Furniture

If you have a lot of artwork to display, keep your walls more neutral. If you are starting out and lacking artwork, you can go bolder and brighter and make your walls your art statement.
