Ask Annie about Your Decorating Dilemmas!

Happy Fourth of July, Fresh American fans! In honor of the holiday, we’ve got a special treat for you. . . .


Ever wish you could ask a professional designer decorating questions, like which shape of side table to use with your favorite couch, how to hide a TV so it doesn’t become the focal point of a room, or what type of rugs are best for homes with dogs or cats? Then you’re in luck. Submit your decorating dilemmas today, and Annie will answer them right here on the blog on July 30! All you have to do is:

  1. Send an e-mail to us by July 19 with details about your decorating dilemma. Be as specific as possible. One question per person, please.
  2. Attach a photo, if you have one, so Annie can better visualize the space.
  3. Come back on July 30. Annie will choose up to 6 questions for this first go-around, and help solve your dilemmas right here!

Get your questions in by July 19!

What perfect timing. We just purchased a home where one bedroom has a Murphy bed. It’s on the longest wall of the guest bedroom. It absolutely consumes the room. Should it stay (and find some way to neutralize the massive wall of white cabinetry) or should it go? For now, we just shut the door and pretend it’s not there. I would certainly appreciate your advice. (BTW, not sure how to post a photo; please advise). Thank you

My sister and I are redecorating her bedroom. What is the first thing we should do/buy so that the rest of the room will come together. She has picked a style, very elegant shabby/farm style. No frou-frou. But we’re just not sure where to put color, or not!

I love color–is there such a thing is “too much color”? How does one make the best choice with respect to choosing a color scheme.

My daughter has just bought a ground floor walk out condo. The living room/ dining and kitchen are in the same space. She is confused about which colors to use on the walls. She did buy the brown cat’s paw rug to start her decorating with. Since it came furnished she has a brown sofa, brown dining table and chairs . And a very large tv hanging in the middle. Thanks for helping her with color choices ……
