Fresh Ideas For Your Home

August 2017

Tips and ideas for your home from The Pedestal.

Decorating with books can make your interior look smarter.

Decorating with books can make your interior look smarter. - Kilmarnock VAFor the most part, we think of books as volumes to read!

Books also add color, texture and scale to an interior design plan. Most of all, they create a point of interest and conversation for your guests. Typically we think of books displayed in a home office or library, but they can be used as a decorating element in almost any room. You can sort them by color, size, topic and more. The choice is yours.


White is a clear, clean choice for summer decorating.

White is a clear, clean choice for summer decorating. - Kilmarnock VAWhite, used as an accent color or the primary neutral in a room, will help your house look and feel bright, airy and cool. It’s perfect for hot summer days and evenings, yet lasts throughout the year, lightening a room on dark winter days.

Even though “white” seems like one color, the shade actually comes in many versions. Warm white hues are often used to enhance traditional and elegant home designs, while cooler tones work well in contemporary or modern rooms. White can calm your rooms or make them more energetic depending on the shade of white you select and the colors you use around it.


Decorative moldings can help frame your design plan.

Decorative moldings can help frame your design plan. - Kilmarnock VADecorative moldings on walls, windows, doors and ceilings add texture and interest to your home, no matter what your design style.

Moldings come in so many shapes, sizes and finishes. They can consist of one simple layer or several stacked layers to add embellishment. Traditionally moldings have been made of wood, but today they’re often constructed from materials that look like wood, but are more durable and budget friendly.
