Home Renovation Just Got A Whole Lot Easier
Your house is driving you crazy. Between the outdated décor and all the accumulated furnishings that have spawned into clutter, you just wish you could simply start afresh.
Well, you can. A new shopping technique called ‘Shop Your Home” is fast-tracking the world of design and its premise lets you do just that. Start over. What makes the new trend even more hugely popular - it is also budget friendly. You’re doing the majority of your shopping, from your own home.
Owners of Greystone Fine Furniture, Heather and Priya Mohan know all about this new movement in home décor, and they know exactly how to get you started. The premise, they explain, is to reinvent your home - with your own possessions. By simply moving your furnishings to new locations, switching and swapping their purpose, (perhaps new colour paint on their trim) you can shake up the entire look of your home.
To get started on a room it is best if you can empty it out entirely. Take out the furniture; remove the art, even the drapes. Then, go up to your attic, down to the basement, do an entire walk-around of your house and collect all your long forgotten furnishings. Now, begin to ‘shop’. Look at each item. Do you still love it? Do you need it? If not, let it go. If you do, put it back or - switch it to another room. Your bedroom dresser might make a perfect dining room buffet, your old desk - a perfect console table in the living room. Bowls from the kitchen are ideal for collecting mail on the hall table and what about letting the coffee table hold candles against the wall and sub in a steamer trunk in its place?
Don’t pass by that Christmas box when you’re doing your walk about; a few baubles of silver and gold can look spectacular in a glass bowl or vase.
Still a little shaky on exactly what to do? Visit Greystone Fine Furniture. Even bring pictures. The Greystone Girls can help guide you, and even provide that missing piece – the one that would bring your whole look together. A Persian rug? One more chair or missing piece of art.
Fall in love with your home again. It is entirely possible. Let Greystone Fine Furniture show you how. Located at 514 Guelph Line (just north of New Street) Burlington, ON. 416-414-0472
