Change is in the air. Fall is here and winter isn't far away.
It's one of the busiest times of year for interior decorators.
"The reason we're so busy
is people really get energized in the fall," says Thomas
Pheasant, an award winning interior designer from Washington,
D.C. "The change in temperature serves as a signal to start
focusing more on the indoors to get ready for winter."
Pheasant says one of the best,
and easiest places to start, is in the room where you spend a
majority of your time: the bedroom. "You don't have to start
moving furniture all over the place to change the look of the
room," says Pheasant. "Changing your bedding and curtains
is often all it takes to make a dramatic difference."
Pheasant says the same colors
you see on the trees outside --- orange, gold, red, brown and
olive green -- have great appeal indoors. "They really set
the mood of the season, especially when combined with paisley
and velvet textures."
