Making Your House A Home

Tips to transform a house into a home with decor and furniture from the heart ~Design tips provided by Tree Co. in Tacoma

  • Your entry is the initial introduction to your home and sets the stage for you and your guests. Place a cozy rug or floor mat inside the door to define the entry and give an immediate sense of personality. A reclaimed wood bench, umbrella stand or coat rack, and luscious candles complete the welcoming picture.
  • Be creative with your space. Move items at an angle, layer different rugs and add a wall of photos and memories. Use your imagination to make the space warm, inviting and as unique as you are.
  • Try to bring nature inside. Although the Northwest is overflowing with the beauty of nature, we all know that during our wet, gloomy weather we may stay inside for much of the time. Visit your local nursery to get tips on what kind of plants will work for your space, the amount of light available, and your lifestyle.
  • Incorporate different elements such as wood, metal, glass and greenery throughout each room to bring warmth and life to your spaces. Mirrors not only provide style and function but also lighten up a room and help create movement.
