Every year like clock work, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Mom and I receive frantic calls from client's looking to spruce up their homes before their holiday parties. Little things like buying new lamp shades, or rotating your rug so the worn side is under the sofa, are simple fixes that can be accomplished the day of an event, but what about the big projects? Waiting until five days before a party to make major design decisions can be stressful. Losing sight of long term goals and only focusing on getting something done by Saturday is never the way to go, so plan ahead this year people! One of our favorite small scale projects is re-facing fireplaces, in two days your living room can be completely transformed. I know this project requires a bigger budget than new lamp shades, but hiring a professional is definitely worth the investment.
