It is no surprise that the reboot of the T.V series Queer Eye has taken the world by storm on Netflix over the past few years. From Jonathan Van Ness’ sassy comments to Tan France’s great style tips and famous French tuck, design expert Bobby Berk has somehow slipped under the radar completely transforming homes in just a few days. If you are wanting to bring in some of Bobby’s design tips into your own home here are some of his top 5.
It is common to have a set-it-and-forget-it mentality when it comes to our walls. A bit of paint, hang some artwork and bam you're done. Well, Bobby suggests that the best way to freshen up your home is to look at your walls and update them. Add a notable piece of art or if you want to try something a little different why not try a textured accent wall by adding wood, wallpaper or a faux brick wall.
Having the right temperature in a room can really help to make it a comfortable place to be in. Every aspect of the design of a room is thoroughly thought through except for the temperature. “People don’t realize that lighting can change the whole look of a place and the feel,” he says. He’s not talking about the light fixtures though. The amount of light and its warmth or coolness makes a huge impact on the feel of the room. Too cold and the room feels sterile and too warm makes the room feel small and gloomy. Find a bulb with a happy medium that matches the room.
