Joan Inglis had the honor of presenting two seminars at the 2017 Fall Home Improvement and Outdoor Living Show at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  She also had the opportunity to share a sneak peek of her presentation "Update Tips to Add Style and Value to Your Home" with WBTW News 13 viewers and provide some DIY tips too.

 Joan's tips included:

  • What are the safest colors to use on big-ticket renovation projects? Begin all projects on permanent fixtures in the house (like tile, hardwood, and cabinets) with streamlined colors – the timeless colors – black, white, brown, and tan.
  • What if we’re just looking to update the look of a living room? Light-colored furnishings are really popular.  Instead of going stark white with upholstery, look for cream or gray fabrics.  Then use an accent color or two in art, pillows, and accessories.  Keep the color flowing throughout the room.
  • What can we do to make our bedroom more inviting? Replace your light fixture with a chandelier; clear away all clutter from nightstands and chests; and add a plush rug under the bed.
