Easy ways to incorporate timeless style into your home (ARA) - Think traditional styling is only for opulent mansions

and stuffy country clubs? Well, think again. Traditional design is not only extremely accessible to incorporate into any home, but according to research by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), it’s the most popular, too. Learn how to take back traditional and customize your own space.

Start out small

If the idea of transforming a large room into a traditionally styled one seems overwhelming, start on a smaller scale, like in the master bathroom. Keep the cabinets and counters neutral and add some glamour with the wall and accent colors. Favored shades in traditional decorating are jewel tones, like topaz and golds; deep reds and rose quartz; marine blues and vibrant greens. Use accessories like embroidered towels, bronze or iron bath accessory ensembles and potpourri bowls as the perfect finishing touches. Another great way to add traditional flair to your bath is with elegant and elaborate fixtures. Look for a faucet with unique and detailed design elements, like the new Weymouth bathroom collection from Moen. From the European-influenced decorative script on the porcelain inlays to the refined top finial, this collection definitely stands apart. And just because you’re incorporating stylish, traditional items, doesn’t mean you have to skimp on modern functionality or features. You can reduce water usage by up to 32 percent, thanks to a water-saving aerator. Tie the whole space together by selecting an Old World finish, such as Oil Rubbed Bronze, and you’ll create a traditional suite that’s comforting and classic. {continued on page 36}

Difference in the details

One of the best ways to add traditional style throughout your entire home is with architectural details, like moldings, chair rails or ceiling medallions. It’s easier to add these elements than you may think - and at a reasonable price. Peel and stick crown molding from Easy Crown Molding allows you to add the luxurious look of custom molding to your home. In less than one hour - and without tools - you can complete an entire room. Simply pick your desired trim style and width and get started. Lush fabrics are also key to achieving a traditional look and feel in these spaces. But, don’t be afraid of the elegance found in traditional decor. Silks, satins, velvets and brocades are going to be your go-to fabrics for pillows and upholstered furniture. Be sure to stay away from solids - mixing coordinating patterns, like florals, stripes and scrolling, add even more richness. Don’t forget to make a statement with your windows, too - hang draperies that are full and heavy, and be sure to tie them back with ornate tassels for a look that is unmistakably traditional. It’s often easy to find great traditional pieces at affordable prices at department stores like Macy’s or Target. From pillows to curtains, bedding and even furniture, your local department store is one of the best places to start your traditional search. Bringing traditional styling to your home is much easier - and accessible - than you think. With the right updates and additions to your space, you’ll achieve a look that’s timeless and refined.

Small changes mean big style in a room refresh

For a Good Time, Call 1-800-New-Auto

www.ProfileSubaru.com Profile Subaru • Conway NH

(ARA) - It’s the time of year when thoughts

turn toward refeathering the nest. With more people choosing to stay in their houses, the desire to make “home” more desirable is stronger than ever.

Most people are forgoing major renovation projects due to the economy, according to a poll of top builders and developers taken by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) for CBS Watch.com. However, that doesn’t mean everyone is satisfied with status quo. There is a new trend among homeowners to opt for a room refresh in lieu of a major renovation. Smaller projects such as updating flooring and wall color make a difference and won’t break the budget.

Small changes can translate into big style, according to Erinn Valencich, L.A.-based interior designer and blogger for HGTV’s “Design Happens.” “If the bones of a room are good, you don’t need to renovate. You can create a big impact simply by updating a few key elements in the space,” says Valencich. “The application of a few styling tips, like adding colorful pillows or rearranging accessories, can start to transform a room.” She suggests trading secondary furniture pieces between rooms to get a fresher vibe without investing in new furniture. Shop secondhand furniture stores and junk shops for unusual pieces that will add a little something extra to the setting.

Vinyl never looked

THIS Good Before!

The newest designs and colors from all in one place.

Start with the floor

When Valencich approaches a room refresh, she often begins with the floor. “Most people may not realize how much a floor adds to the ambiance of a space. A dull or scuffed floor can make a room look tired,” says Valencich. Many people try hiding worn floors by layering in rugs, but Valencich warns that too many rugs become clutter. Rather than purchasing area rugs to solve the problem, she suggests putting those dollars into a new floor. {continued on page 44} 40

{continued from page 31}

“A floor can become a real hero in a room refresh,” says Valencich. “It can help in addressing challenges within a space.” • A small, will feel spacious with a lighter floor and either a soft or bright wall color.

• For a more intimate look, select a darker floor.

• Light floors can also create a dramatic impact when paired with deeper toned walls.

• Rich, dark floor colors also create a nice balance with bolder walls.

When adding floors to a space, Valencich prefers hard surfaces such as wood or laminate for their depth of tone and natural feel. She says that laminate is often overlooked as a solution, but its durability and ease of installation make it a solid choice. “Laminate floors have come a long way since they were first introduced. In fact, it’s pretty hard to tell the difference between premium laminate such as Quick-Step and hardwood floors,” says Valencich. There is a wide range of styles available in laminate, from satin furniture finish to handsculpted, from painted oak to highly textured surfaces like Quick-Step’s Rustic Cottage Oak. “I like the look of the warm, smoky gray cottage oak floor. Its highly textured grain looks and feels like distressed barn board. It works well in both a traditional decor or as a nice contrast to sleek modern lines,” says Valencich. Another alternative is the look of exotic wood. If you prefer the elegant graining and unique color of rare African and Brazilian species, laminate is definitely the way to go. If you are considering purchasing a new floor, quickstep.com offers a floor configurator that allows you to choose both wall color and floor styles to see how they work together. To make floor selection even easier, Valencich has curated her own collection of Quick-Step “Designer’s Choice” floors, which can be viewed at quickstepstyle.com.
