Redecorating a bedroom
A Silver Spring condo owner would like to turn her 12 1/2 -by-19 1/2 -foot bedroom, a "hodgepodge of cheap furniture, odds and ends, and clutter," into a more attractive and organized space.
Homeowner: Nancy McGuire
Select furniture that will maximize storage and create an interesting and comfortable environment.
-- Select warm tones and natural materials with accent colors from the Southwest.
-- Create interesting displays for plants and jewelry.
-- Hang plants, especially succulents, on decorative shutters using pothooks. (Look for affordable shutters at the eBay store Capitol Salvage.)
-- Add salvaged wood to the base of the rectangular end table for style as well as an additional shelf.
