Real Estate Tips: Expert Tips to Creating a Relaxing Home

Great design tips that work all year. Throw on Slipcovers- Little Rock designer Courtney Singleton thinks slipcovers are the perfect quick fix for a stuffy room. Slipcovers make a sofa “seem like a place to flop down and read a book,” she says.  No Color- Elizabeth Gibson-Wakeman, a Sarasota, Florida designer, likes the look of black-and-white photos. “They’re usually best with a white mat in a black frame,” she says. “The look is almost a non-statement because of the absence of color.”  Rethink Bouquets- Anything from nature can become an attractive — and inexpensive — centerpiece. Rebecca Cole, a New York City landscape and interior designer uses wispy grasses, twigs, and produce for bouquets. “They offer conversation as much as they do beauty,” Cole says. “There’s nothing more beautiful than just a simple bowl filled with driftwood.”  Easy Art- “I love to lean pictures instead of hanging them,” says Janna Lufkin, a Redmond, Washington, designer. Lean pictures on a mantel, a windowsill, or against furniture for a no-fuss display.
