It's All About the Jewel Tones

By Tracey Edwards | February 06, 2015

Do you like to keep up with the latest fashion trends?  How about the latest home trends?  As an interior decorator, I have always used my home as "Ground Testing Center."  My walls will never fall down as they are well cured with many layers of paint.  There have been faux finishes, murals, and all colors (well most colors) of the rainbow painted throughout my home at one time or another.  When you're wanting to change the decor of your room, the cheapest way to do that is to change the color of your walls.

Step Outside the Box

By Tracey Edwards | October 21, 2014

When it comes to decorating – it’s time to think outside the box.  A space should reflect your personality and lifestyle.  So, if that’s the case, then why do so many people feel that they need to stay with the “traditional” and what’s “normal”?

Rugs - Think Outside the Box

By Tracey Edwards | October 14, 2014

Have you been searching for the perfect area rug and just can’t find the right one?  Does your décor call for a small area rug that coordinates with a fabric pattern in a piece of furniture or within a window treatment?  If so, you can create your own contemporary area rug.  What?  Am I kidding?  Absolutely not!  All it takes is a little creativity, a few supplies and using remnant carpet.  It’s also easy and inexpensive!

Items needed: Remnant carpet, SHARP utility knife, cutting area, carpet tape, ruler, paper and pencil (for templates).

Let Us Help You with Your Decorating Project

By Tracey Edwards | September 16, 2014

I recently met with a client and we started talking about the Interior Decorating services that Ayoub has started offering.  She was so impressed that we are willing to provide Free consultations and thought it was a great addition to our Flooring department.  She proceeded to tell me how much a company was charging her for window treatments and that they still weren’t installed after 6 months of waiting.  I was shocked!  As a professional and knowing approximately how much textiles and hardware cost, I knew she had been charged entirely too much.  Not to mention, they had truly mishandled

Redecorating Without Breaking the Bank, Part 3

By Tracey Edwards | August 28, 2014

Well, my room is done!  Yeah!  I am so pleased with how well everything turned.  You already saw the triptych above the sofa on my last post.  Now you can see that the buffet has been turned from traditional to more antiqued contemporary by using chalk paint.  I had thoughts of replacing the knobs, but being that the piece is so old, the dimensions are different and I would have had to fill in the holes and drill new ones.  I liked the original handles with the new finish, so the cost and effort to replace them wasn’t worth it.

Winter Area Rugs. Is There Such a Thing?

By Tracey Edwards | August 26, 2014

Winter Rugs versus Summer Rugs, is there such a thing?  The short answer is No.  But, my interior decorating side says Yes! Of course, there is such a thing!  Just like the clothes you wear during summer and winter months - they are completely different (unless you live in an area that has the same weather year round.)  I live in Virginia where we have 4 separate seasons and the beauty that comes with each (Winter is quickly becoming a season I dislike A LOT and have trouble finding the beauty sometimes in extremely cold weather with a lot of snow).

Redecorating Without Breaking the Bank, Part 2

By Tracey Edwards | August 19, 2014

Can you tell I’ve been busy this weekend?  Last week, I started a new blog series about redecorating my living room from a traditional décor to a brighter, more contemporary décor without breaking the bank.  The wall painting is done.  WooHoo!  I LOVE this color!  It’s Sherwin Williams “Breezy,” which is a slate, grey blue.  It’s very calming and peaceful – which is in complete contrast to the deep red I had prior.
