REDESIGN

Some advice

If you want to fluff your own home, here are some tips from redesigners Vicki Dye and Virginia Fenrick as well as Joan Steffend of HGTV's "Decorating Cents":

Invite a friend to help you -- and you can reciprocate -- so there is someone with a fresh eye who sees your old belongings in a new way.

Remove the clutter -- including papers and magazines from all horizontal surfaces. This simple step can transform a room.

Add greenery for a new dimension of color and texture.

Angle the furniture for a new look.

Group like things together -- such as placing all your silver-framed pictures in one spot -- for a more dramatic look.

Vary heights of items for visual interest.

Aim for a focal point -- such as grouping furniture around the fireplace in a sitting room.

Consider the other rooms of your house. Would that brown rug look better in the den?

Add candles and pillows, rugs and lots of lamps for a warm and cozy feel.
