HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 30, 2009 1 HOMELIVING ............................................ INSIDE DECORATING Add some style MAKE AN ENTRANCE Set the mood PRODUCTS Home ideas WATER WISE Be flexible Setting the scene PAULINE PRIEST Setting the scene Decorating the home can be a little daunting as it takes a certain amount of skill to ensure things don't clash. If the home is not appealing chances are that you won't want to be there and your visitors won't feel comfortable, so take things in hand and set the scene. If the house is dark lighten it up, if it is cold, add some warming features, if it is too messy then toss out what you don't need or pack it away. If it is too stark, add a lamp or artwork. It makes sense to paint the interior of a house in light colours to give the feeling of spaciousness, however a feature wall painted in a block colour will take the starkness away and give the room a lift. Decorating the home can then be considered in any theme from antique to ultra-modern. Curtains and blinds should be practical to ensure the interior is thermally protected to stop the summer heat from entering and, during winter, to keep out the cold.
