Redecorating? Here’s How to Get Gutsy with Color and Design

September 14, 2016 4:04 pm

Bold style and colors can transform your home to make it feel more fun and happy. If you’re looking to liven up your home and really make your space more exciting, follow these tips for some inspiration.

  • Use a large, oversized reflective object, such as a light fixture, to assert dominance on everything else in the room.
  • Experiment with design objects and put them out of their element. Something like placing a rug on the wall can really make a statement.
  • A patterned piece of furniture can be a great addition to your space. Something like a floral pattern on a sofa or polka dots on a chair can make an impact.
  • Turn one wall into a modern piece of art. Even using a simple splash of color on one of your walls can make a huge difference.
  • Use a patterned light switch plate instead of the plain old white ones for a fun little pop of color.
  • Instead of filling a vase with flowers, use a large leaf with a unique shape.

If the kids are complaining of boredom, or if you are looking to get out of the house, head to Van Saun Park. This 146-acre facility is home to a zoo, a carousel, pony rides, and a splash pad. There is also a dog park for Fido.

Van Saun Park also has several playgrounds, one of which is ADA accessible. In addition, you will find picnic areas, fishing areas, and a 1.5-mile trail that allows you to walk or ride your bike around the various park amenities. The tennis center offers summer camp to children, as well as private lessons and some adult leagues. There are also three fields that can be used for soccer, baseball, and softball. Finally, if you come after a good winter snow, bring your sled for some cool fun.
