Need This on the Patio? (I do!)

These patio candles are essential where I live when the mosquitoes are brutal. This particular rustic style will work with so many diverse decorating styles since a bit of rustic always elevates the surrounding elegance.

If your style is more casual and country, these smaller galvanized examples are cute while they do the job of repelling those pests.

BONUS: 3 Mindful Decorating Ideas

1. Start With Inspo From the Art

When you have established your design style yet are on the fence about color palette, a piece of art can be your inspiration.

Design: Sherry Hart

The art’s subject matter isn’t as important as the color story and the emotion it evokes. Additionally, you don’t even have to own the art!

Even an image online, a magazine clipping, or a digital photo taken by you (go to your favorite art museum!) can be a guide to color.

Notice the quality of the colors to which you’re drawn. Are they pale and chalky? Rich and saturated? Watercolor? What color combinations thrill you?

If you own the art, snap a photo so you can access it easily while shopping online or in person.

2. Find the Perfect Paint Color (With a Temporary Accent Wall)

Not everyone will agree, but this tip has worked for me. Let’s say you are on fence about a color for a room and still stuck after buying a sample and painting a good sized swath on the wall. What can you do to get closer to a plan?

Paint the whole wall and live with it so you may watch it as the light changes through the day. Are their undertones coming through that you didn’t expect after seeing just a small chip of the paint color?

Even though there is some labor involved with painting a whole wall, it’s less work than tackling the whole room!

Design: Sherry Hart

This tip is particularly sensible when you are seeking the perfect paint color to use throughout your home. Even though the quality of light will vary room to room, painting a whole wall may be just the start you need to proceed confidently.

3. Use an E-Designer for Finishing Touches

There are plenty of design projects where there simply isn’t room in the budget to hire an interior designer, but the internet has democratized beautiful design in some lovely ways. Sometimes what you need is simply a few conversations or mood boards to point you in the design direction that is best for your unique needs.

In other cases, it helps to have a design savvy e-designer help you with accessorizing and placing finishing touches on a space where the anchor pieces are already in place.

Do search my archives HERE for inspiration too.
