PDQuick! A Room with a View

PDQuick Tip: If you're unhappy or dissatisfied with a room in your house but can't quite put your finger on why, consider taking some photographs of the room.  Sometimes what we can't see when we are present "in" the room due to various distractions and visual stimuli becomes clear as day when viewed through the objective lens of the camera.  You might be surprised.

Speaking from experience, I had a client with a room in her house that had frustrated her for years.  Although the room had great architecture, a vaulted ceiling and beautiful furnishings, there was just something about it that continued to miss the mark.  The room should've been perfect, but it wasn't.  After taking several photographs of the space from various angles, it became apparent to me that the problem was mostly that the cool undertones of the wall color were "fighting" with the warmer tones of the fabrics on the furnishings.  Once we "warmed up" the walls with a richer, more saturated paint color, the room appeared more cohesive.  Problem solved.

Give it a try!
