design tips: vol. 3

September 30, 2010

Greetings to all!

It’s time for another installment of our hauthaus design tips for your home!

FRONT ENTRY TIP:  A bright, colorful console or coat rack, a favorite piece of artwork and/or  fresh flowers will energize your entry and express who you are.

Your home should welcome you at the front step and project your design style with gusto!  Make a statement and make sure it carries through from one room to the next.

HOME OFFICE TIP:  Be sure to have the supplies you use regularly organized and in abundance.  A well stocked home office and a comfortable desk chair will encourage you to go in and sit down for a bit. 

Task lighting and a paper recycling bin or shredder will make you even more efficient at managing your correspondences.

FAMILY ROOM TIP:  Make this gathering space purposeful.  Are there games nearby?  Cozy blankets within reach and stain resistant fabric on the sofa?  Coasters and good reading material close by? 

The TV doesn’t have to be the only source of entertainment.  If there are alternatives handy, like a deck of cards, they will likely be used!
