Interior Design Myths Revealed

San Antonio Custom Home

It used to be that only the finest homes used interior designers and that they held the secret to making a home beautiful.  Now, there is an abundance of information  and apps available to get your Weston Dean home exactly like you envisioned it to be. As with fashion, after a while things go out of style and the same is true in décor. In order to remain current, you need to know what rules have changed in interior design as of recent.  What used to be a hard and fast rule in home décor may no longer be relevant for your new custom home in San Antonio.  Read on to see how the rules have changed in the world of home design.

Design myth #1: Only paint your room white to make it look larger and bright. It was once believed that the color white made a room look big or that it brightened up the room.  It is partially true, size and scale of the room have more to do with wall color and furniture.  There is nothing wrong with a small room in your Weston Dean home that is done in warm colors to make it inviting and comfortable.  The addition of colors to walls and adding accessories creates a great impact on how the room of your new home looks.

Design myth #2: Don’t paint a room a dark color. It used to be thought that a dark color makes a room appear small, but the opposite is true.  A dark color can add warmth, texture and dimension to the room of your home.  Dark colors tend to add a sense of glamour, style and drams to the room.

Design myth #3: Small rooms need to have less furniture.  Small furniture in a small room will make the room of your home look like a dollhouse.  Instead of having many small pieces of furniture, have one or two large pieces.  It will make the room appear bigger.  If the room in your Weston Dean home is too small, think in terms of functionality and style proportion.  Choose an armoire which creates a big statement and it also serves as a storage unit or a trunk used at the foot of a bed can be used as storage and also add an elegant and chic look to the bedroom of your home.


Rules in design can be broken.  As you decorate your home, you need to add your personal taste and style to the room and what makes it comfortable for you and your family.

7 things you should have in your bedroom

Categories: Boerne Custom Homes Builders, Home Decor | Posted: August 30, 2019


Labor Day weekend has finally arrived and as summer winds down to an end, many homeowners are taking their extended weekends to catch up on some things around the house. You may use this long weekend to declutter your home for the busy weekends of summer that have not allowed you to do so. The bedroom is often a place that gathers clutter overtime, but most people don’t know where to start in terms of what to keep and what can go. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier Boerne custom homebuilder, shares the top 7 things you should keep in your bedroom to help you narrow down the things that you can get rid of.

Your master bedroom should be the sanctuary of your home where you can rest and relax at the end of each day. After all, you spend about 200,000 hours of your life in your bedroom so it might as well be as enjoyable as possible!

The first of the 7 things you should have in your bedroom start with your walls. You should keep or put up artwork on the walls or anything decorative that puts you in a good move or gives off a calming or soothing effect. Family photos may be one of the first things you think to hang on your bedroom wall, but that is a no-no when it comes to the art of feng shui.

The next thing you will want to be sure and get for your room is quality bedding. This is something you won’t want to skimp on or go the cheap route, since it is where you will be sleeping every night to recharge for the next day. A good night’s sleep is really important and purchasing luxurious linens with a high thread count are worth the investment.

Then, you will want to invest in a comfortable rug for your room. Having a cushy rug that you can sink your toes into each morning makes even the earliest of wake-up calls that much easier to deal with when you have comfort at your feet as soon as you hop out of bed. Even if you already have carpet, you can still add a plush rug by your bed to give you the ultimate comfort in your morning.

Wall hooks or shelves will be very valuable in your room and can hold anything from scarves to jackets and books or plants for both function and design purposes.

Extra seating is the fourth thing you will want to have in your bedroom, and this doesn’t include the bed itself! Having a comfortable chair, small sofa or whatever you choose is great for a quiet place to read or even just a spot to sit and put on your shoes each morning. If you are short on space in your bedroom, consider purchasing a storage ottoman that can double as both an extra seat as well as more storage space.

A full-length mirror will be one of the other items you will want to purchase and have in your bedroom. Place it in a location where you can double-check your outfit each day before you head out of the house. Adding a large mirror to a small bedroom also helps give the illusion of a larger room, for an added bonus.

Lastly, to round out the number seven item on your bedroom list will be choosing the right scent for your room. You can incorporate nice scents from candles, to all natural air fresheners, even oil diffusers that can give your room a nice and relaxing aroma. If you’re looking for a scent that improves sleep, try something with a lavender scent that is proven to give off an aroma that improves sleep.


Weston Dean Custom Homes wishes you a wonderful long Labor Day weekend!
