Decorator Nate Berkus is sharing his all-time top 5 best pieces of advice when it comes to decorating your home.
Tip 1: Turn Eyesores into Treasures
If you have a piece of furniture that is outdated and unattractive, why not spruce it up? Nate tells you how to re-do upholstery and sand down wood to give your furniture a totally new look.
Tip 2: Fake it Until You Make It
Nate was faced with small, oddly placed windows in his New York apartment, so, using a shade and curtains, he created the look of floor-to-ceiling windows. Nate suggests getting creative, going on Pinterest and Googling your specific issue in order to treat problem areas of your home.
Tip 3: Fill Your Home with Meaningful Objects
Nate encourages everyone to decorate with beautiful items that hold a lot of meaning to them, like family photos, or mementos that tell a story.
Tip 4: Don’t Be Afraid to Use Black Paint
Nate says to not shy away from painting your home black, revealing that a black accent wall or black cabinets can really stand out.
Tip 5: Decorate Over Time
Nate says that even if you’re in a rush to decorate a room, if you want it to feel multi-layered, to gather décor over time. Make sure you include texture, and that things don’t look too matchy-matchy.
