The Basics of Getting Started

Feeling overwhelmed and don't know where to begin? Planning is essential to creating a space and a home that you love and can afford. We can help you create a decorating plan and bring it to completion - on time and on budget!

The Basics of Decorating Styles

Knowing and following a certain decorating style can help transform a misfit room into a uniform and elegant space. By choosing a decorating style to reflect your tastes, you can give your home a specific look while maintaining a unique touch.

The Basics of Color

Color can be a bit confusing – it seems as if there is often too much or too little in a home. But when you hit upon the right color combination in the right amounts, you know it. Color can make a room feel animated yet relaxing. And the good news is that a small amount of money spent on a small amount of color can make a big impact on the appearance of a room.

The Basics of Furnishings

Goldilocks encountered the same problems that we often do - our furniture can seem too big, too little or just right. But how to know what is "just right?" By giving you a few simple design rules and tons of creative advice, we can help you easily and frugally furnish a "just right" space.

The Basics of Accessories

No amount of decorating can make a house feel like a home without accessories. Accessories are the icing on the cake - the touches that transform a space into a unique and personal reflection of its inhabitants. But there can be too much of a good thing. Planning and a bit of knowledge is essential when adding accessories.
