simple switches

The June 2012 issue of House Beautiful is full of great ideas for renewing & creating interiors.

Two articles stand out ~ the first starting on page 82 because a Kansas City house was featured!  The second (page 92 – 101) article, by David A. Keeps, interviews interior designer Betsy Burnham who shares solid concepts with regards to spaces…here a few favorite points:

  • pairing colors with neutrals = richer look
  • all rooms need a little black
  • any color resembling bad foundation make-up is wrong!
  • float furniture away from walls
  • all rooms need something old
  • children’s rooms need a grown-up attitude…not Disney murals or team bedsheets…  (please, I’m begging you…don’t do it!)
  • say “no” to  crazily painted floors

The issue is chalk full of fun for interior design junkies!
