Pleeeze take this advice!

This is a brilliant drawing done by Erin Gates author of the popular blog Elements of Style.  Take a good look at what this sketch illustrates-WOW!  From cramped to expansive for the same size window!

NATURAL LIGHT SELLS HOMES.  So many times I walk into a listing and there are multiple layers of window coverings or dated cornices or balloons shades blocking out architecture and light. Let the sun in people!


*Open or pull up shades, blinds or otherwise before a showing

*Take down dated treatments; Example: plastic roller shades that I currently have in my daughters room, and remove or replace with simple sheers from Target. 

*Allow your draperies to hit the floor.

Who wouldn't like this?

Selling or staying?  Either way, this is a combination that would attract both sexes and lighten up a bedroom for the warmer months ahead.
Don't have a settee lying around?  A bench works great as well!  Check out tag sales, consignment shops and online for inexpensive options.

Have a Fantastic Tuesday!
