DEC­O­RAT­ING A BI-LEVEL HOME

Real Living (Philippines) - - Real Homes -

in a bi-level home, the gen­eral liv­ing spa­ces are open-plan and can usu­ally be seen from the sec­ond floor. this can be a prob­lem in terms of how you dec­o­rate a space―a spot may look too empty, es­pe­cially if you see ev­ery­thing at once, or clut­tered if you use too many styles. home­owner Karen pacheco shares tips on how her family was able to max­i­mize ev­ery nook and cranny of their bi-level abode. 1. “since you can see the whole space at any point, the fur­ni­ture, color scheme, and theme should go to­gether,” says Karen. “color har­mony is key.” 2.

“i had a par­tic­u­lar look in mind, and i couldn’t get all the pieces i needed in one store,” says Karen. so she didn’t just stick to our home and sm home. she went to spe­cialty sup­pli­ers as well. 3. Karen bought her fur­ni­ture piece­meal, not know­ing if they would all look good to­gether, but her use of light­ing and col­or­match­ing makes ev­ery­thing look co­he­sive.
