MELBOURNE, FL, Feb 26, 2015—Although the Oscars are behind us, many are still thinking about our favorite film stars. Below, Julin Lynn, REALTOR of Pruitt Real Estate, Inc. offers five tips for adding a little Academy-approved appeal to your living space.
Less is more. Many celebrities rock minimalist homes. To get this look, think clean lines and no clutter. “Invest in stow-away storage pieces—like ottomans or benches—that double up on purpose,” suggests Lynn.
Bright lights. From large windows to sky lights and sliding doors, a well-lit space can give your home a lux appeal. If you can't afford to add new windows or install a sky light, lighten it up with high-quality light fixtures, light-colored walls (think whites and creams) and make use of mirrors.
Think rich. Colors, that is! “Deep burgundy, luxurious cream and rich mahogany brown furniture can give your home a lustrous appeal,” says Lynn. Add a pop of color to a wall, buy some lush drapery, upgrade your dining set or find a richly colored area rug.
Make a statement. If you want to really make a room stand out, start with a signature piece and work around it. “Add a few simple, modern elements, like an edgy coffee table to go with that bright couch,” says Lynn.
Play with texture. “Try a ribbed wall paper or add a glaze over your wall paint, which reflects the room's natural light and provides interesting texture,” says Lynn. Other texture tips? Emphasize the ceiling by painting it an interesting color, throw an area rug down to break up that wood floor, swap out boring door knobs for more unique varieties and choose different fabric throw pillows and blankets to give your furniture a fun pop.
