Dreaming of the Ideal Bedroom? We can help.

Dreaming of the Ideal Bedroom? We can help.

When you think of BEDROOMS, what do you envision?

A warm, inviting space that envelopes you, a soft bed, with warm covers, a sitting area that you can relax in and enjoy leisure time with your spouse?

The word bedroom is defined as a room for sleeping, but we all know that it is much more! In addition to sleeping, a bedroom serves as a quiet, relaxing space that we use for reading, sharing intimate moments, and keeping your wardrobe neat and clean. Depending on the size of the bedroom, we may also use it as a small informal office, an exercise area, or to watch TV and listen to music.

CHANGE YOUR LIGHT BULBS – REDUCE ELECTRICITY COSTS BY 75%!

Not only that, you can count on an LED bulb to give you an average of 50,000 hours of service before a replacement is necessary. This compares to 1,200 hours for a 60 watt incandescent bulb!

Color Trends 2015

Color Trends 2015

 Our world is shaped by trends that are constantly changing. Do we follow trends or do the trends follow us? This is similar to asking what came first – the chicken or the egg. As we tire of colors that have dominated our clothing and interiors, new colors become popular therefore creating new color trends. And so it goes. Benjamin Moore Paints began producing an annual Color Trend report and although it offers color combinations that are fresh and new each year, they do not necessarily control our color choices for interior design.

By designing a complementary window treatment, the room develops a dynamic flow. This is the primary goal in interior design. Sound easy? Well, how about challenging?
