“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” – Albert Camus

The fall is here, and with it the weather gives us a break so we can afford eating alfresco and enjoying more time outdoors; it’s a time to open windows and doors to let the fresh air come into our homes.

It’s also a good time to give our home a full check-up, are there repairs needing attention? How’s the paint holding up?

Perhaps your furniture is in excellent shape but some pieces call for re-upholstery, well this is a good time to start making your priority list and give the deserved consideration.

At Eddie Wharez® Diseños Casa y Jardín our main concern is to provide you with the best  and highest quality furnishings and home décor, yet we also supply window covering, paint job, re-upholstery, carpentry and so forth, please keep us in mind for all your home interior needs.

Maybe all you have to do is move your furniture around to give it a new look and that’s alright, if you do that, you can place pieces of furniture into cozy conversational groups.

An armchair that complements your living room set can also anchor a nice reading spot in your bedroom, let your furniture flow to other areas of your place!

One of things that make a room look so warm and welcoming is great lighting, one of the most common failures at many homes, aim for a total or the equivalent of 100 watts for each 50 square feet, nowadays you can accomplish that with energy efficient bulbs or led lighting.

Keep in mind we have three types of lighting: ambient (general or overhead), task (pendant, under cabinet or reading) and accent (table and wall).

If you want to change the mood of a room, try painting it in a neutral hue (I don’t mean beige only, the term neutral extends, from warm tans and honeys to soft blue-greens).

That doesn’t mean you can’t go bold, on the contrary, do not be afraid to use dark paint in a powder room, a bedroom or even the dining room, to make the space more intimate, dramatic and cozy. You don’t have to use it on all walls, by applying paint on just one wall you’ll end up with a nice accent wall adding drama to your space.

Mixing the right accessories can make a room more inviting. When it comes to eye-pleasing accessorizing, odd numbers are preferable, especially three. Rather than lining up a trio of accessories in a row, imagine a triangle and place one object at each point. Scale is important, too, so in your group of three is sure to vary height and width, with the largest item at the back and the smallest in front. For maximum effect, group accessories by color, shape, texture or some other unifying element.

Don’t forget your bathroom! Make it look brand new by painting it and accessorizing it, you can make yourself and others feel like they’re in a spa. Put out items like rolled-up towels, decorative baskets and candles. It’s a great way to create a polished look, and it doesn’t cost much to do.

Well, hopefully you have a great Thanksgiving this 2013 and make sure you stop by at our store on Old Cholla Rd. For our Thanksgiving weekend sale!
