Save Money in this Sunday's paper

If you are planning a decorating project, now is the time to give your designer a quick call and let him or her know what to put on the list of must-finds.

Armless upholstered chairs are one of the most versatile seats you can buy.

We spend about 10 hours a day on average in the bedroom, so why not make this retreat one of the best rooms in the house?

I grew up sleeping in an antique iron bed. My parents still have it and use it in a guest room. Its style is way too “antique-y” for my taste. Perhaps this is why metal beds haven’t been on my design radar for years.

As summer leads to fall, think deeper, richer colors: blood orange, tangerine, deep yellow, wine and sapphire.

Stop putting roadblocks between you and the decor you’d love to have. Tackle a room in phases that won’t stress you or your budget.

Whether you decide to go gold, silver, copper or mix them all together, these gleaming tones work in every setting.

How would you use your home if you didn’t know what the rooms were designed to be? Some would be easy to figure out, but what about all those other boxes?

Most would think a crystal chandelier would be all wrong in a contemporary setting. Actually, it depends.
