The Order of Things

13 Aug The Order of Things

I am sometimes asked by my clients, “which item should I buy first for my room?” I like to suggest that it is best to start with the item that is least available. For instance, if you are planning to add upholstery, rugs, accessories and paint to your room, begin with the rugs. There are fewer rugs in the market than there are fabrics. Next, choose your fabrics because there are fewer fabrics than there are paint colors. (After all, a paint color can be custom made, making the choices virtually unlimited!)

Having said that, remember that you’ll want to make all of your selections together before purchasing anything. And most importantly, create your overall budget for your project(s) so you don’t overspend!
