Most of us have experienced a time in our lives when we get busy and things just get chaotic in our home due to our current state of mind. We allow clutter to build up but we can quickly get things back under control with a little spring cleaning. However; overcrowding can occur and may have nothing to do with emotional circumstances and everything to do with poor planning and lack of ability to solve a decorating problem. Either the furniture in a room is too large or it is just poorly placed.
These pictures demonstrate that it doesn't matter how lovely your home and furnishings are - if the furniture is mismatched and the room is over-crowded, the room will not function or feel right. These homeowner's lived in an affluent neighbourhood but like many people did not understand the principles of design. After completing a ReDesign in their main living areas, we were able to give them a peaceful, harmonious home. We removed the clutter, created comfortable seating areas to allow breathing room. The results were amazing! To view more of this makeover, see Winter to Christmas ReDesign presentation.
