Revamp for the Summer in 5

This summer seems like the perfect summer to take chances with your deigns. Have you been feeling a little blah in your house? Or wish that just for once it looked like those we see in Simply Southern? If you’re wondering how to get there, the answer is here! Here’s a few tips from us interior design experts that’ll take your house to the next level in 5 days.

Clean, Purge, etc.

We’re sorry about this one, but in order to get the cleanliness of a model home, you’re going to have to walk in and around every room in the house with a trash bag (or maybe a few) and throw out any unmatched decor or useless items that are laying around. Try to be unsentimental about this, it makes the whole process go quicker; at the end of the day, you’ll feel amazing, like a great weight was just taken off your shoulders.

We wish all playrooms look like this.

Time for the Bins

Now that the unnecessary stuff is gone, we bet you found a lot of items out of place. Today is designated to designate everything to a spot. To do this, you’ll need lots of bins and maybe even a label maker. Our pro tip: be creative when it comes to your storage and labels. Today leaves no time for the usual clear plastic bins. Make a trip to your local Homegoods, TJMaxx, or Micheals and pick up various sets that’ll uniquely match each room in your house; just be sure to keep them within similar tones to unify the house. There are even labels made to match every personality and size needed, so feel free to vary up the look with those then keep the bins simple.

We loved doing this MUA’s room revamp!

This is the Fun Part

Time to decide what style best suits your house! Take to day to scroll through Pinterest, Houzz, or scour hashtags that interest you on Instagram. If you’re new to the whole social media scene, better get used to it today. Look up “boho, country chic, or beach house design” on Pinterest and Houzz to immerse yourself into these style ideas, then narrow your favorite from there by screenshotting or adding the picture to your account. Don’t be afraid to not like something! Something we always tell our clients is that “no’s” are a lot more helpful than “yes’s.” This will define your space, making it more catered to your true style rather than just copying a staged picture.

Take a detour over to our Houzz to see some project photos!

Source Your Style

When it comes to choosing  what you want, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Some of the best ways to do this are turn to a certified designer (like A.Clore Interiors 😉 to head the buying and installation, which frees you from the stress of the two last, sometimes least fun, steps. The benefits of doing this is getting the items for wholesale price, access to designer-only available collections, and assurance that your project will come out looking picture perfect. Check our services page for more information! Other than this, ask neighbors and friends whose houses you admire where they went. Pinterest also now has a shop feature that leads you right to the checkout cart for the item pictured that you need. And last but not least, tour your local furniture stores and look online for deals for easy shopping.

Find vases that speak to you for easy decor!

Execute and Relax

Whether it was a small project or large renovation you planned, coordinating and placing everything can be tricky. Taking it one room at a time helps, like one room a day. This timeline will assure everything gets done efficiently; by planning this around shipment dates and availability, it’ll get done smoother. Be creative when placing the furniture, maybe follow the footprint of a room picture that you admire. But by choosing your own things, this will keep the candor of your house.

Make sure you have a plush chair to sink into after its all done!

We hope this simplistic timeline will help motivate you to take a second look at your living quarters this summer. If any assistance is needed, be sure to ring into our studio! Happy designing!

2019 Interior Design Trends

With 2018 out the door and the new year here, everyone is revamping their lives with resolutions and are determined to make changes. The design industry is showing some changes, too, with new trends arising, plus some trends are carrying over from the previous year. Here are our top ten 2019 design trends!

Quartz

Quartz countertops are a relatively new concept. Most clients want granite, but that requires high maintenance and isn’t as durable as quartz. With quartz you can get the look of granite while still maintaining a higher level of functionality and durability. It conveniently comes in a plethora of colors and styles to match your preference.

Keep your kitchen renovation expenses down by opting for quartz countertops.

Maximalism

As opposed to minimalism, maximalism is taking its stand in the new year with its bold presence of personality. While being stylishly crowded is tricky, the lived in look can make an area feel more welcoming and keep the eye interested. Some tried ways of doing this include using lots of different textures, sizes, and keeping colors bold but still within the same spectrum. We have been saying “more is more,” around the studio.

The mood board features lots of textures but sticks to similar hues.

Wallpaper

Wallpaper has been making a huge comeback this past year, and will continue to be used in many ways.  A subtle, textured wallpaper used throughout the space keeps a cohesiveness that’s not overbearing. A bold accent wall filled with pattern catches the eyes and is an effective way for adding personality into a room. In addition to plastering it up on walls, wallpaper can wrap accessories or be framed to mock art. This decor technique will incorporate unique characteristics while still being easily removable.

The agate-patterned wallpaper in this nook draws attention to the special liquor corner.

Green Trend

Not only is green in as a color but also as a lifestyle. Green products are a better alternative in 2019; we can embrace a cleaner and more eco-friendly way of living. The hue softens any space when incorporated as a toned-down, earthy color. To achieve this, bring house plants into your rooms. It can also energize when used in the workplace when used in a bright manner.

Sustainable and Natural Fabrics

In 2019 animal-free leathers and worm-free silks will provide us our favorite luxurious fabrics and textures guilt free. These synthetic textiles are often more durable and affordable than the real thing, making it even more tempting to incorporate.

This leather will stay in great shape over the years in this living room due to synthetic modifying.

Rose Gold

Whether it’s on the faucets or accented with lighting fixtures or accessories, rose gold is another hit color for 2019 with its sleek and glamorous demeanor. But not in the same ways as it was in 2018; this year you will find mixed with a brassy tone to modernize it. Small pops of the color add elegance to any space. For easy inclusion, Kohler just came out with a line of rose gold plumbing fixtures.

Decorative Ceilings

When designing your space don’t forget your ceilings; not often are ceiling seen as a fifth wall. Paint, wallpaper, and beams all act as ways to add some interests to your ceilings. This will furnish the room as a whole and can be used in many settings.

This ceiling adds extra glam to the luxurious master suite.

Multifunctional and Compact furniture

Perfect for the urban dwelling, 2019 will show more stylish options of compact, multipurpose furniture pieces. These will be smaller in scale and adaptable to different spaces. With growing families and smaller spaces in popular cities, functional furniture is key to invest in.

Curvilinear Furniture

2019 is bringing back a sense of sensuality! Curved furnishings soften and invite conversation into your space. This variation of form gives the room interest and breaks the mundane flow of corners. It’s easy to draw a large room in by focusing the circle in the center, or if you’re tight on space, use the circular form in furniture to allow for more walk-space.

This softly curved seating area with blue hues invites guests to sit down and have a heartfelt conversation.

Art Deco

Mid-Century Modern was truly loved, but it is on the way out and Art Deco will be making a comeback. Find it this year with its more lavish details being found in sofas, case goods, lighting and accessories. These flairs will easily upgrade any space.

Art decor can really personalize a space.
