​As I am thinking about July 4th, the thoughts of freedom come to mind. and I am so very grateful.

But on a lighter note… the words “sizzle,” and a lot “splash” come to mind… and how we can apply these words to our homes! Every room, every space has a need for impact.

Sometimes we have lived in a space so long — we don’t know how to have a space that can have impact.

Think about…when you first purchased your home, or moved into your new place. What architectural features spoke to you in your home? 

……Was it an archway, fireplace, or perhaps some built-in shelving? Or maybe you are thinking “My room doesn’t have a place for impact”…..but, ah yes…it does.

You just have to put on your detective eyes and see….

For example, my own kitchen window has an area that is just waiting to make a splash! When we first moved in, I just put up a vintage 1950’s white tablecloth on that window (with tulip borders) for the time being, seaming it up for the rod. But those two kitchen windows are kind of the soul for the kitchen. I don’t dislike what’s there, but I know I am going to soon have some colorful window treatments made for that area.  I can’t wait! It’s going to be like Christmas for me when I have those windows just singing to me! (I’ve also had my grown kids return to the nest for a short while,so many projects have been put on hold.) This one’s GOING to happen soon!

Maybe a favorite rug or styling a special area like built-ins…that anchors your space or an heirloom piece will help create impact and a bit of “sizzle!” in your home.

Often, I will go into someone’s home who has lived there awhile and walk through it with them and help them edit furniture and beloved belongings, and create those impact areas that will either help my client love their space, or help that home have a new and fresh appeal for potential buyers, if the home is being listed. It’s so much fun! It’s even more fun when I see my clients’ faces of delight!

So, with the Independence Day holiday approaching and some sizzling fireworks on the way, maybe you can think of something, either big or little that create a bit of impact in your own home.
