It's much easier to paint a blank slate than trying to do it around your furniture. Walk through your new home and think about what colors you want in each room and paint before your arrange your stuff. Here are some tips on how to select the best colors for your spaces.

Your lighting choices have a huge impact on the overall feel of any room. They are also a fantastic way to create some drama. Thinking of a new chandelier or statement lighting? Check our latest blog on lighting for some inspiration.
Speaking of lighting, natural light is a double-edged sword – it looks and feels wonderful, but if not controlled, it can do major damage to your furniture and your artwork. And in South Florida, a western facing window with sun light flooding in will blow up your electric bill in the summer! Window treatments filter out (or entirely block) natural light and are an important element of any room. In addition to the look, consider how much light you want at all times of the day, and plan your window treatments accordingly.
It’s easy to automate a whole slew of devices in your home, from lighting to window treatments to entertainment systems. Change out a few switches, get a few smart plugs and voilá, smart home! We did a whole series on it, check it out.
