Online design helps transform Cheviot Hills home from 'vanilla box' to alluring, traditional showplace


By Bonnie McCarthy

It took Leura Fine less than three months to transform the new 4,500-square-foot Cheviot Hills home she shares with her husband, venture capitalist Paige Craig, from an uninspired “vanilla box” into a showcase of design and personal style.

Decorating Diary: Tonal quality of colors important

Using heavier upholstery weight fabrics will feel softer and look more inviting on seating that you will feel under your legs and hands. Draperies can add to this feeling by using the heavier fabric there too, instead of lighter drapery fabrics, and give the design element of surprise. Either weight can add warmth by making the draperies fuller and long enough to puddle on the floor. This also adds warmth to the walls and floor, and changes the ambiance of the room.
