See the progression of five pieces of molding we found and a salvage yard and how they were transformed by faux finishing and custom shadow boxes, into fantastic personal artifacts for an Id Evolution client. The cost from beginning to end was about $425. Pretty reasonable for completely unique pieces. Faux finishing handiwork was provided by Denise Chamberlain of Magic Brush Arts.

Can you tell which one is real? Faux flowers and plants have made a huge improvements in their appearance. Orchids are one of my favorites. Though not all fake flowers are created equal. Look for plants with silky flowers and natural looking stems and leaves. Avoid the plastic looking stems with unnatural colors. Keep it to a few well placed plants for dramatic effect but avoid overdoing it. You don’t need them in every room or covering every blank surface. And the best part is no watering required!

Design Tips to Consider…
We used several design techniques to enhance the visual aesthetics of the space:
-White walls called for colorful accents. We chose red to spice up the neutral color scheme.
-Fabric covered canvas makes a great flexible art piece
-Empty spaces underneath furniture can be filled with trunks, stools, baskets, or pillows to bring more interest
Using these tips can transform an empty space to feel more like a home.
