A beautiful home is all in the details

Accent Tile & Patterns

A simple change in pattern in even the most inexpensive tile adds a lot of interest. Lay tile on the diagonal, or in a running bond (brick) pattern rather than plain square.Clip the corners and add in a 3” x 3” square of a more expensive glass mosaic or a metallic pencil liner. Spending $500 extra on a tile accent will make an amazing difference in design.


Skip the “Builder Beige”.  You don’t have to go crazy, but a warm neutral throughout the home will richen any look. Think of it as the background to set off your furniture, window treatments & accents. Then change it up a bit. Most painters in this area only charge a nominal fee for a color change, which is well worth it when you consider the cost of supplies and time it would take to do it yourself. Pick a couple areas, or rooms that you want to highlight.


Make sure you add detail throughout your home. It is better to spend a little less on more details to keep a cohesive look throughout, rather than spending a lot in one area.
