ANEX INTERIORS

Regina’s Professional Home Redecorators by Jessica Forbes

This month I would like to feature a local Regina business that offers beautiful decor and professional advice on staging and redecorating. This is a very valuable feature in the real estate world because with the proper staging techniques and advice it will help sellers to obtain a higher sale price. For buyers, this will help them transform their new property to showcase its greatest potential. The impact staging has on a property is exponential and is worth completing to gain a top sale price and complete that sale in a much shorter time frame. Another reason to look into this service is merely for your own enjoyment and for brightening your own space!

As tempting as it is to start decorating a room by picking out that perfect cushion, sofa or paint colour, we always advise clients to hold off until a rug is chosen first. We say it over and over because it’s true: the rug makes the room. It’s so much easier (and more successful) to coordinate those other elements with your rug, rather than the other way around. Another common mistake people make is to choose a rug that isn’t big enough for the space. An undersized rug makes your room appear smaller and disconnected. When in doubt, go for a size or two larger. It will unify your furniture and make the room appear larger than it really is.

Here is a sneak peak of some great tips that Scott and Jericho can offer through their service.

Remember, decorating your home should be FUN! Don’t get preoccupied in matching colours and patterns exactly. The most beautiful rooms are beautiful because they contain a great mix of interesting objects and artwork. Your room should coordinate, it doesn’t have to match.

Most often, clients looking for decorating advice will already have some great pieces of artwork or furniture in the room, but the problem often lies in the placement of things and too much clutter. Sometimes, all it takes is a professional eye and an hour or two of making a few simple changes to your existing layout to make the space look and feel new again. This service doesn’t cost a lot, and often with a few new accessories added in, you’ll be amazed at the transformation. You’ll be proud and excited to have some guests drop by – probably even that same night!

If all this seems a bit overwhelming, give Anex Interiors a call at 306-546-2639 or stop by the store at 1118 Broad St at 5th Ave. Scott or Jericho are always eager to help.

Remember, the right accessories – colours, shapes and textures – are equally important as the furniture itself. Cushions, flowers, photos, and art are the things that truly make a house your home, and don’t need to be complicated or expensive. Your home should be a reflection of who you are, and not a copy of something you saw on Pinterest. With winter on its way, life moves indoors. An area rug will add warmth, colour and vibrancy to any room, especially those with hardwood floors. Hardwood is beautiful, but it can be cold and barren. Anex has Regina’s largest selection of area rugs. Guaranteed we can find one that will fit your design scheme, your lifestyle and your budget perfectly.
