We asked three interior designers to share do-it-yourself tips for freshening up a room by using items you may already have.
Annette Hannon, an interior designer in Burke, got creative when decorating a bedroom for a designer showhouse. She didn’t want to spend money on fancy sheets, so she bought fancy ribbon instead. She sewed double-sided satin ribbon along the trim of the sheets and pillows, instantly adding a designer feel. Grosgrain ribbon is also a good option, she says.
