CREATING A WELL-THOUGHT–OUT SPACE DOESN’T NEED TO BE EXPENSIVE. TRY THESE TIPS FOR STARTERS:
Go for DiY art. The paintings that are now displayed in the living area was made by one of Magara
AD F eTsEigRns’ lead painter, Jason Bongat. The artwork is made out of acrylic paint and leftover wood! If you have the talent, why not create art yourself?
Have pieces reupholstered. Rather than throwing out the old sofa and buying a new one, Moslares had it reupholstered in a neutral fabric. She also had matching sofa slipcovers made for easy removal and cleaning.
add a few colorful pieces. Neutral colors—brown, white, black, beige, and the like—are usual favorites of homeowners when furniture shopping because they’re easy to match. However, a room full of neutrals may look or feel heavy or boring. Mix in a few colorful pieces for interest, like how Magara Designs chose a plush settee to go with the black-and-brown dining table.
