Q. Just moved into a very small studio and would like to make my sleeping area private on a budget?
You could use a ceiling curtain rod with a curtain that could be draped closed at night and open in daytime to give you an open space plan. In addition, you could also use an open shelving unit that divides the sleeping area and provides storage space, make sure you display things orderly so that it is aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time.
Q. My daughter is off to college and I would like to surprise her with a nice room makeover, could you recommend any ideas for the walls that are not permanent?
One product that is popular right now is Tempaper, (www.tempaperdesigns.com). It’s a great way to add pattern or pop of color to any room without worrying about damaging your walls or having to repaint before you move out.
Q. I would like to paint my guest room in a mustard yellow, but I am not sure what other color should be introduce to the room?
Since yellow is such a strong color you might want to introduce a grounding color such as black, grey or navy, which are great compliments to yellow, in addition, you could introduce some prints which could break up the color and give you some visual interest.
