(NC)— As summer draws to a close and we complete our outdoor clean up, thoughts turn indoors to all the projects put on the backburner before the weather drew us outdoors. Fall is the perfect time for quick and easy makeovers. Take a look at a few tips on this topic from home décor specialists, Velux:
Choose an accent wall and apply a bold new colour, a dramatic wall covering, or textured paint to draw the eye and provide an exciting back-drop to the living or dining area. As an alternative to paint and wallpaper, the new Velux blinds collection by designer Karim Rashid incorporate fun, bright patterned shades for an instant room makeover while blocking out light. Choose vibrant pink, acid yellow or soon-to-be classic black and white designs. The new patterns complement contemporary homes and have decorative metallic details creating a vivid texture and quick design change-up for any room with a skylight. The Rashid collection gives you full control of light and provides the best total blackout for both day and night. Perfect for afternoon naps, blackout blinds are ideal for installing in bedrooms where the tight-fitting blinds prevent any light from entering the room. Design options are available at www.veluxblinds.ca.
Finally, illuminate your home with natural daylight by dropping in a sun tunnel with the designer Lovegrove lamp. Using the sun as a bulb, award-winning industrial designer Ross Lovegrove has created a sustainable alternative to electric lighting that generates as much light as a traditional 60W electric bulb, even on cloudy days. A simple, stylish way to transform your space with daylight, you can adjust the light's intensity and angle for a result that will beautify any interior.
