Go Green

Vern Yip advises, “Organic items”--fresh flowers, real plants, a small tree in a pot--”make a huge difference.  Something real or organic gives off a different energy.”

You Got To Move It, Move it

“It costs absolutely nothing to take the things out of your room and rearrange them.  People get stuck in that rut of seeing their room the same way. Move around the things that you already own,” opines Vern Yip.

It’s All About You

“Whether it’s a collection of albums you love, dancing shoes, a picture of you on the beach or your favorite vacation memory...that’s the first impression people have when they walk into your home.  That’s your business card,” states Ty Pennington

Dim All The Lights, Sweet Darlin’

Laurie Smith says, “Lighting is a really powerful tool.  And how simple is it to have dimmers! They’re $15. Put a dimmer on every light switch in your home. It just makes or breaks everything.”

One Thing At A Time

Changing just one thing, “a fresh lamp, a fresh plant, a fresh color” makes a big difference, advises Ty Pennington.
