Best bedroom paint options for you

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Paints are probably the quickest and the most cost effective way of giving your bedroom that required makeover. The right colors can make your bedroom look just like the way you want to. If you have been thinking of getting a painting job done than here are a few tips that you can use-

1)      Always go for white for the ceiling. This gives a virtual height to your bedroom and makes it look larger than it really is.

2)      If you are looking for a fresh feel then go for light colors for the walls. Colors like lemon yellow, baby pink, different shades of light blue and soft purple are the best. They too make the room appear larger than it is.

3)      However if you want to go for the more glamorous and dark looks then the best thing would be to paint one of the walls really dark with colors like red, vintage green etc and color the rest of the three walls with colors that compliment the darker one.

All About Tablescapes

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

There are a lot of options for home decor these days and choosing from these vast choices can be a hectic job at times. However, there is a way to avoid all that stress while decorating a home. One can use tablescaping to create a new look and feel in the home decor. It is a new term for a more elegant table setting. It not only involves the centrepiece but also the accessories like plates and other dishes that are a part of the table setting.

It must be kept in mind that tablescaping is not only about the dining space; it can also be applied to other tables of the house like coffee tables, night stands and side tables. The easiest way to create an effective tablescape is to go for a theme. The themes are the common ones like holidays, birthdays, floral and animal themes. Even small potted cacti on the side table can help in getting a rustic look.

Lighting options to make your living room more welcoming

Monday, February 6th, 2012

A living room is the place to hang out with the entire family, sit and relax – this makes the lighting feature even more vital. Whatever the interior of the room maybe, it only comes to life if the lighting is sufficient and efficient. A center light bulb – chandelier – can be the best option for the living room as it gives enough brightness and adds to the aesthetic value.

Another option is the track lighting that follows a unique pattern throughout the ceiling that spreads the light equally and looks beautiful at the same time. Coming down from the ceiling, you can place table lamps or floor lamps where you think the light is most needed. This gives you the option to maneuver the lights whenever you want to. The bar lighting or the fireplace lighting are other cool options if the budget is not under scrutiny.
