Go BIG or go home with your redecorating? Why not both? (ARA) - “Go big or go home.” It’s a popular sports chant that’s found its way into numerous other aspects of American life. But when it comes to home decor, going big at home may not seem like an option, especially if your budget is less than grand. In reality, it is possible to make a big difference in your home decor on just a moderate budget of $5,000 or less. The room that will give you the biggest “wow” for your investment is the one your guests spend the most time in - the living room. Here are some tips for getting that “go big” feeling for less money.

Do it yourself A blank wall offers an opportunity to go big with color or graphic elements. The addition of a bright wall mural makes a bold statement and transforms a space.

Look for high visibility projects that you can reasonably do yourself, like painting, tiling or even installing murals for living rooms. Keep in mind your level of DIY skill and how polished and professional you can reasonably expect your finished product to look. If you choose a project that’s a bit above your current skill level, make sure you prep for the new experience with plenty of research or a hands-on class. Many home improvement stores offer low-cost or even free classes on popular home improvement projects.

Big Projects Look ... Well, Bigger

It’s no mystery why repainting the walls, changing out flooring or switching window treatments all make such an impact on how a room looks. The bigger the surface area of the design element you change, the greater its affect on the room’s overall appearance. Making a design change to a large room element can allow you to generate major impact with a relatively minor investment of money. Window treatments can add up if you go with custom options, but if your windows are standard sized and you’re a savvy shopper, you can track down bargains that will allow you to dress up your windows for as little as a few thousand dollars. Painting is even more cost effective, and you can redo a large room for a few hundred dollars.

You’ve found the house, now make it yours with beautiful hardwood flooring from

For over 40 years!

Need a style lift? Begin with neutral flooring for ultimate design versatility (ARA) - Do you pin your favorite bathroom makeover ideas on Pinterest, look for inspirational kitchen designs or dream about new decorating styles for your home? If so, you’re not alone. Many homeowners are opting to makeover their homes this year instead of upgrading to a new one. According to a recent survey by Better Homes & Gardens magazine, consumers rank “style upgrades” as the most important component of their upcoming home improvement plans, followed by storage. For future projects, consumers said their top style upgrades include flooring, countertops, faucets and fixtures. Flooring experts suggest beginning a style upgrade project by installing neutral-colored flooring. Neutral floors create the perfect canvas to help tie all of a room’s design elements together.

What is a fresh, new and widely-popular neutral color within interior design circles? That would be grey. Some of the hottest hardwood flooring designs for 2012 offer traditionally American brown tones that are delicately infused with a grey influence. Many flooring professionals offer a variety of styles and options with grey undertones - from rustic oak plank designs and floors with wire-brushed detailing to the same visuals and charm of a hardwood floor constructed from reclaimed, vintage wood. Grey-toned floors provide the ideal backdrop to let your style and favorite colors shine through, and they also transition well as interior design styles and trends change. ] Continued on page 36 ^

Grey is the new brown Grey is no longer

viewed as a trend color in design circles, but is now viewed by professional designers as the new neutral. “Grey is the new brown,” says Erinn Valencich, L.A.-based interior designer and blogger for HGTV’s Design Happens. “I used a grey-based floor in my new design studio because it goes well under a myriad of other wood tones. You don’t have to use grey-based furniture on top of it - grey looks great with all wood tones.” Another benefit to grey-based flooring, Valencich adds, is that it’s very forgiving.

Just look to large furniture retailers to see how their offerings now highlight greybased tones. The bleached-out, weathered Scandinavian look is very popular right now, Valencich says. It’s perfect to pair with a new grey floor.

Colors that complement Don’t be afraid of color when designing a room with a greybased floor, Valencich says. She suggests one of these color palettes to make a room shine: * 50 shades of blue - Grey looks beautiful with any shade of blue, from soft powder blue to vibrant turquoise to charming daisy blue. ] Continued on page 40 ^

Borrow A Designer’s Trick When it comes to grand statements, designers have a trick or two up their sleeves. They also know how to make the most of a shoestring budget, so look to popular designer tricks for inspiration. One interior design technique that has held its popularity against the test of time (and the economy) is a wallpaper mural. Adding a custom wall mural to your interior design plans offers the opportunity for creativity and customization, and maximizes the use of your wall space in making a grand statement. You can find plenty of online options at websites like MuralsYourWay.com, many for less than $1,000 and most for well under $3,000. They’re easy to install, and you can even opt for the type that is removable and reusable. So if you tire of the look, you can take it down and move it elsewhere, fold it up and store it for another time and even color match it to your wall paint color. If you’ve decided to keep your fun money at home this season, you can go home and go big, with some planning, savvy shopping and a touch of DIY creativity.

* Bananas Foster - A favorite color trio of Valencich’s is yellow, chocolate and cream on top of a greybased floor. The subtle flooring highlights the rich colors for a bold, decadent look. * Lovely with lavender - Lavender is one of this year’s hottest colors and a long-time partner for grey. Valencich suggests adding any color of purple to a grey floor for standout results. “Consider creating a focal point around a muted lavender wall and add some deep, rich, regal purple accents to bring it all together.”

Getting started

When beginning a room makeover project, the first step is choosing

a clear color palette. Wall color is a great place to begin, Valencich says, but any object - a rug, chair or artwork - can serve as your inspiration. Next, think of the design process in layers - the trick is to coordinate and contrast. “If your paint, accessories, furniture and flooring are all the same color, the room will feel flat,” Valencich advises. “So create drama by using a pop of color or by layering varying shades of the same color for a refined tone-ontone look.” A well-executed color palette can transform any space with great results.
