Interior & Exterior Painting Upgrades

To change colors or not change colors: That, when it comes to paint, is often the question. A professional color consultant will help, whether you want to match existing paint colors or choose new paint colors that will enhance curb appeal and bring new life to the interior or exterior of your space. In addition to revitalizing the look and feel of a home or professional space, new paint also offers a layer of invaluable protection that will increase the overall marketability and value of the property.

a Lighter, Brighter Master Bedroom

Bulky and often blase, master bedrooms are shedding the heavy furniture of old and instead opting for brass open night tables, white bedding with pops of color, plus lots of light layers and pillows. Add marble lamps, a tufted linen bench and patterned rug for accents that are all at once hip and timeless.

Distinctive Lighting

Here's a fair rule of thumb: If the builder installed it, it's probably time for it to go. Today's newest lighting selections allow for true customization of space, literally from the ceiling down. Go with "wow" metal accents for shimmer and shine. For best results, pair all that new illumination with unique home decor options that reflect your individual aesthetic.

German Cabinetry

Cars, cheese and, now, cabinets made with such precision, you can truly DIY. The list of what Europe does better is long but this excluded affordable kitchen remodels. That's all changed with the clean lines and on-trend designs of the German-made cabinetry options that you can install yourself (Or work with your contractor, or Dannick Designs - the exclusive local purveyor.).

Updating your Existing Art

That family portrait is timeless. The matting and frame? Not so much. Today's top trend in wallart is taking what you have - those meaningful pictures, paintings and shadowboxed treasures - and upgrading their frames and matting to add fresh pops of color to your space. Of course, there's the secondary benefit of preserving your pieces, too. Opt for acid-free matting and preservation-quality frames to keep your memories bold and beautiful for
generations to come.

Adding Vibrant Textures & Accessories

Bring your interiors to life this spring with color and texture. Color is back in 2018 and you can punch up your neutral interiors with vibrant accessories. Baskets, lamps, pillows and rugs are easy ways to layer in color. Adding a few new pieces? Texture adds tons of interest to interiors. Mix in wood, concrete, horn, leathers and natural wovens to visually delight the eye.

Spring Cleaning Begins Beneath your Feet

And because no one has time, in the office or at home, to wait days for carpet to dry, this is the season to opt for a legendary carpet-cleaning service that uses 80 percent less water so your carpet is dry fast. Bonus: The Hot Carbonating Extraction method used has been proven to remove 98 percent of allergens.
