Area Floor Rugs

If you are like me; your house is painted in neutral colors, your home furnishings are timeless, and your wall accents are very classic pieces. A home that has a neutral theme, like mine, deserves an eccentric accent piece. A patterned rug. Purchasing a patterned rug can be daunting, there are so many options. There is a rug in nearly every pattern you can think of and in various different colors. Placing a patterned rug in any room is a great way to bring an accent piece to your home without taking away from your other carefully chosen home decor pieces. I would suggest that busy patterned rugs be placed in a larger room, so that the patterned rug does not become an eye-sore of sorts.

On the opposite spectrum of patterned rugs we have the natural material rug. These includes but is not limited to, jute, sisal and bamboo rugs. Natural material rugs provide the same functionality as all other area floor rugs, while keeping a classic and casual feel. A perk to decorating with a natural material rug is that they are extremely durable, they keep out more dirt, and they are timeless. The natural material rug is a safe purchase, due to their neutral design they have not gone out of style since they became stylish.

Why stop your decorating in the living room? Bring a decorative flair to every aspect of your home with an outdoor rug. Outdoor rugs are the perfect finishing touch to any patio. Not only are they stylish they are functional as well; they allow for minimal dirt to be tracked back into your home, they are a great way to rid of that slippery surface when you get out of a pool or jacuzzi, and they allow you to kick off your shoes outside without making your feet dirty. Outdoor rugs have come a long way from the classic fake-grass look, they now come in nearly every design you can imagine. Outdoor rugs are a great way to keep a cohesive design throughout your home, you can purchase an outdoor rug that mimics the style or matches the style to the area floor rugs you have indoors.

Choose Furniture Slipcovers

When it comes to furniture, you need not replace the furniture piece just because it lost its grandeur. Cover the furniture piece with a Slipcover. But many find it difficult to choose a Slipcover and lose money by picking the wrong one. So make a right move by following these simple steps.

Identify the Pattern

The pattern signifies the user’s taste. For traditional homes, traditional shades and simple patterns suit well. If you love contrasting things, then cover the furniture with Zig Zag Slipcovers. Options are copious and they can also be customized. For Kids’ Rooms and Dining Rooms, choose thematic Slipcovers which feature relevant pictures.

Color

The color of the Slipcover determines the beauty of the room. It makes a profound impact on the overall appeal of the room. The nature of the room and the household has to be taken into consideration while ordering a Slipcover. Not only the color of the fabric but also the color of the pattern has its say in the appeal of the room.

  • A plain color Sofa Slipcover can be complemented by patterned and colorful Pillow Slipcover.
  • For Dining chairs, choose dark colors over light colors. Because they can expose stains and marks.
  • If you have pets and kids in your home, then be choosy. Avoid white color as it needs maintenance.
  • Choose bright colors for Kids Playroom furniture. They find them very attractive.

Fabric

The kind of the fabric you are going to select for the furniture Slipcover defines its durability. Take into account the fabric’s Ease Of Maintenance. Otherwise, it proves you wrong.

· If you love to change the Slipcovers frequently, then choose the one which can be easily washed.

· Cotton, Denim, and Corduroy fabrics suit well for homes having kids and pets. These fabrics have a very good Ease Of Maintenance.

· For Accent Furniture, choose Micro-suede or Faux leather as they are rarely used. Micro-suede is durable as well as affordable. Faux-leather is

· Thicker fabric fares well compared to thin and stretchy fabrics. It is durable and deserves your investment.

Ready-made Vs Custom

This is purely subjective. It depends on many personal preferences.

If the furniture is tailored to the profile of the household, then go for Custom Slipcovers. Many designers are available online, you can order Slipcovers by providing the dimensions and color/pattern preferences. If you are particular about the fabric, then spare some time to choose the best one. Custom Slipcovers render utmost satisfaction and comfort but they will be a bit costly.

Ready-made Slipcovers are easy to choose. Before choosing a Slipcover, measure the dimensions of the furniture. Generally, Slipcovers are available in standard sizes. Many online shopping sites are making it easy for their customers to sort a Slipcover based on Size, Color, Material, and Pattern. A few sites are offering Slipcovers according to their place of usage. Living room furniture requires a bit of maintenance, so they are providing Slipcovers made of a particular material.

1. Color splash

The “blue for boys” and “pink for girls” is a lot to hear these days and it sounds like a little old fashioned now. OK yeah, I know these two are the perfect colors respectively but come on!

Ever seen children running and jumping here and there when they’re all in their moods? Well, bouncy beds are just an add on. It will help when they will come from school and just fall on it- it won’t hurt.

3. The upper wall

When I was small, it was a dream to have an upper wall full of stars and moon, it is kind of dreamy. So paint it like a sky, color combination- white-indigo blue-silver and a little of yellow for the half moon in its best shape. Whenever your kids will lie in bed at the time of sleeping, they will look up and find a starry sky just like it feels when you lie under a real sky. Trust me, it is beautiful.

Make sure you hang a wind chime on the entrance of his room. It will surely beautify the room even more and melodious peaceful sounds every time breeze will hit the chime.

Beautiful Decor For Your Garden

Outdoor decoration is equally important as indoor décor. We tend to not care as much about decorating our outdoor environment as we do our indoor space. We typically think of outdoor décor in the fall or spring. Summer or winter is too hot or cold to think about outdoor decoration. With that said there are few things that can make our outdoor décor just as appealing and inviting as our indoor décor. We can decorate with decorative fire pits for the colder months and create a lovely ambiance. The fire pits are a warm touch that encourages family and friends to gather and start a conversation that can create lasting memories. Making fond memories around the fire is great past time. It reminds us of the love of outdoor and camping. It will make one think of marsh mallow Smores and nostalgic memories of times gone by. There are variety of options when it comes to fire pits and it depends on individual taste and the mood that one wants to create. The options range from gas to wood burning as well as portable fire pits. They each create its own ambiance that is warm as well as inviting.

Another way of decorating our outdoor environment is by placing whimsical water falls around our garden, patio or pool. Water creates a Zen atmosphere to your outdoor space. The soothing sound it creates as well as provides calmness to our busy life. The sound of water and the look that it creates in our patio or garden nurtures our soul and eases our mind. Therefore; waterfalls are a great way of creating décor as well as wellness to our outdoor.

Wind chimes are another option to create serenity and joy to our outdoor. Wind chimes are thought to be good luck in many parts of the world especially many parts of Asia. Wind chimes are used in indoor decoration as well. The usage of Feng Shui is what comes to mind. There is a little history about wind chimes too. Did you know that wind chime started to become modernized around 1100 B.C. after the Chinese began to cast bells. In those times wind chimes were considered religious objects. They were also thought of as an object that could attract kind spirits and drive away evil ones. There are so many wide selection and variety of wind chimes to choose from.
