Home Decorating | Maximizing the View | Lisa Scheff Designs

Sometimes home decorating is about maximizing the view.

Often the most beautiful rooms are stunning because of what’s outside!

home decoratingDo you live in a house with a beautiful view – of the rolling hills in Somers, the Connecticut River, Mount Tom, or the landscaping on your own property? If so, part of your home decorating strategy can be to maximize the view from inside your home!

Here are some tips to focus attention on the view:

  • Use colors that mimic the colors outside your windows.
  • Consider a minimalist look for furnishings near the windows.
  • Think about the landscaping in your garden just outside your windows; this becomes part of the look of your home.
  • Use potted plants inside your home to mirror the landscape outside.
  • If you’re up for a remodeling project, think about replacing your windows to make them larger or to minimize mullions that interrupt the view.

During a home decorating project, we love using Silhouette Window Shadings in a home that has a view (or one that doesn’t for that matter).  When the louvers are open, the sheer fabric allows you to enjoy the view while still giving your home insulation and UV protection.  We often forget that the strong UV rays of the sun can cause fading and wear on our furniture and flooring inside the home.  Silhouette Window Shadings are a great way to protect those pieces that you invested in without sacrificing your view.

Lisa Scheff listened to my needs and came up with a very creative kitchen floor plan that transformed an antiquated kitchen “add on” into a fully functional space with maximum storage. Her out of the box thinking helped me realize that removing a chimney was the key to creating the space I wanted – a solution I would not have come up with on my own. Armed with Lisa’s floor plan, I was able to successfully orchestrate our kitchen renovation. I highly recommend her.
