It's summer and that means people all over are cleaning out, dusting off and remodeling. Even businesses take time during the slower summer months to clear out storage areas, and tidy up. How do I know. We get called for design solutions during the summer months. It finally dawned on me: People are clearing the decks and then our phone rings. Garage sales, tag sales and all manner of scouting takes place as clients and friends look for vintage, antique and unique pieces to either streamline from, or infuse into, their interior designs from homes to offices. This month's stylish suburbanite tip. Pick up pieces that work into an already established look in our homes: I call it "the little black dress" approach. Just like building a wardrobe, designing a home takes forethought. One of the best preparations is to have a good understanding of what you need and why, especially if you find yourself out and about. If not, you will end up selling next summer what you picked on a whim this summer. My favorite tip. Go vintage.

Many people like chairs that work in guest rooms and that migrate into an office for clients then move into the family room for a party. Three uses, one piece. I love that. This fits into the "Little Black Dress" type. One example was a wing chair frame with hideous upholstery. We knew from testing for squeaks and tilts that the frame was solid and well constructed, so $275 later, the chair was ours. If I had contracted my frame maker to create this same model from scratch, the wood construction alone, not including springs and eight-way hand ties, would have been $650-$700, wholesale. It has a curved front edge and curved wing flanges - not inexpensive details, yet they were 'hidden' under ugly. As it was, we had a terrific model to work from for less than half the cost. 2) Strip the. Source: www.lamorindaweekly.com
