DECO TIPS

* DECORATIVE PAINTING SHOULD COMPLEMENT THE ROOM'S DESIGN, NOT BE THE FOCAL POINT.

* A NEW UPHOLSTERY FABRIC OR FINISH CAN, TOTALLY MAKE OVER A VINTAGE PIECE. LACQUER YIELDS AN UP TO DATE LOOK.

* DON'T PASS UP A GREAT ITEM AT AN AUCTION OR SALE, EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT AT THE TIME, YOU MAY NEVER SEE A PIECE LIKE IT AGAIN!

* ANCHORING A ROOM WITH PIECES NEUTRAL IN STYLE AND HUE, FREES YOU TO MAKE A MORE INTERESTING CHOICE WITH ARTWORK, WALL COVERINGS AND ACCESSORIES.

* CHANGE TABLETOP DISPLAYS SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR TO REFLECT THE SEASONS WITH FLOWERS AND DECORATIVE OBJECTS.








* IN SUMMER WHEN YOUR FIREPLACE OPENING IS NOT BEING USED, USE AN OLD WINDOW TO COVER UP THE OPENING AND PROP A PAINTING IN FRONT OF THAT OR HINGE TWO SECTIONS OF PICKET FENCE TO COVER THE FRONT AND PLACE A BASKET OF FLOWERS NEXT TO IT.

* CUSTOMIZE A CHANDELIER WITH LAMPSHADES COVERED WITH MATCHING WALLPAPER AND/OR MATERIAL.

* IF YOU HAVE ASSORTED KNOBS USE THEM ON CUPBOARD DOORS OR DRESSER DRAWERS.






* PLATES CAN BE PICKED UP CHEAPLY AT SALES AND HUNG ON THE WALL FOR INSTANT ART.











* REARRANGE FURNITURE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SUMMER LIGHT AND
BREEZES.
