A winning interior design is all in the planning
Apr 13 2011
Candice Olson is a renowned interior designer that has her own shows on HGTV such as "Divine Design" and "Candice Tells All." Her new book, Candice Olson Kitchen and Baths, touches on the many intricacies of large-scale remodeling projects, and she believes that the initial planning stages are essential in creating a design you can live with for years to come, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Creating a winning interior design starts with the planning stages and keeping a clear idea in mind.
"Large-scale projects take planning and investment," Olson told the news source. "They're intensive, expensive and exhausting. But the payoff comes in a space that functions well, simplifies your life and weathers the whims of decorating fashion."
Olson normally puts aside 10 percent of her budget for trendy elements, this way she can replace them without having to change the whole aesthetic of the room. It's also important to go into a design project with a clear idea of your room's layout, and personalize your space from there.
Window blinds and shades are cost-effective ways of improving your home, and fabric designs such as roman shades can add depth and texture to your living space. They are available in many colors and styles and can be custom-built to fit any window.
