Visu­al­iz­ing your new home — and how you will dec­o­rate it — can be fun, but it can also be in­tim­i­dat­ing. Should you go neu­tral or bold? Gran­ite coun­ter­tops or con­crete? Where should you place your sec­tional sofa? What about area rugs? Yikes! Try­ing to an­swer th­ese ques­tions can be over­whelm­ing, but don’t worry, we’re here to help. We’ve taken a sin­gle-level floor­plan, con­sist­ing of a great room, kitchen/din­ing area and mas­ter bed­room, and through de­tailed draw­ings, we’ll teach you about the re­la­tion­ships of scale, color, tex­ture and ma­te­ri­als — and how they im­pact the look of your home.

With th­ese tips to guide you, you’ll be imag­in­ing your­self curled up in front of your new fire­place in no time.
