Carlisle’s Home in the Harbor, Toni Carlisle offers her expertise and advice on how to transform any room in your house in inexpensive ways.
Toni Carlisle, owner of Carlisle’s Home in the Harbor, enjoys helping customers with decorating needs, whether it is a complete remodeling job or giving a room a new look, using mostly existing stuff.
“I love to help people improve the look of a room without spending a lot of money. Transforming our son’s bedroom from a dorm-like room to a cool Guest Room is a good example of what can be done cheaply.” Here are some Before and After photos that show what we accomplished with some paint, purging, relocating and a few new things. Start to finish took about one week. New paint or wall treatments are not always necessary but, in this case, we needed to lighten the look.
“Purging – getting rid of clutter – is usually a key element in giving a room a new look. My favorite rule is ‘Less is More’.” “With this room, we got rid of a lot of stuff but re-used and relocated all the existing furniture. We added some new pillows and bed coverings and replace an old TV with a newer slim model.”
