TEN DECORATING TIPS / SECRETS
1.   Painting Rooms ... angles & slanted ceilings,  
      treat that area as a wall - will make the room
      appear larger.

2.   Decorate Naturally ... Something as simple as an
      oddly shaped tree branch found on a hike could
      easily become a unique sculptural centerpiece ...
      use in a vase...place on a mantle, side table, or floor.

3.   "Rule of 3"... Odd numbers in arrangement /
      accessories - more pleasing to look at than
      even numbers.

4.   Liven Up with Art / Picture Arrangement ... 
      Hang Art / Pictures low enough to complement 
      furniture.  Hanging pictures at eye level only in a
      hallway or art gallery.

5.   Consider the 5th Wall ... Paint the Ceiling - 
      Don't dismiss the the ceilng with a coat or two of 
      white paint.  Pick a predominant color from the 
      room or same color and paint the ceiling. 
      Never Underestimate the Power of Color.

6.   " The Bowling Alley Affect"... Do Not line        
       furniture along wall - move furniture into room.

7.   Accent Color ...  Use black to create Drama /
      Sophistication - e.g., black lamp shade or
      black candles

8.   5 Senses ... Incorporate in the room:  Sight -
      Sound - Smell - Taste - Touch.

9.   Focal Point ... Most prominent elements of a 
      room - e.g. fireplace, a large piece of furniture,
      or view out the windows.  Furniture should be
      arranged around or facing focal point.

10. "Wow" Factor ... Add humor / or a surprise - to a 
      room - will create interest and put a "zing"
      to the room.
