Have A Smooth Interior Design Experience With These Tips

Interior Design Tips for a Family Home

Home-Decor-PicturesInterior design is a fabulous way to express yourself and improve the look of your home. In every corner of every room you can add splashes of color, pattern and shapes to dazzle your family and guests. The following article will offer you tips and advice on interior design you can use right away.

If you have children, you should take them into consideration before planning your interior-design project. For example, you will probably want to stay away from furniture pieces that have extremely sharp corners, as your children can easily harm themselves on them. It would be a waste if you were to purchase’s pieces that end up breaking or causing harm to your children.

Interior design is made easier with a software program. There are many programs that will allow you to take a picture of your existing space and create your look inside of that picture. This is a great way to visualize the changes in the space before making them happen.

Redesigning Your Kitchen

An easy way to redesign your kitchen is to reface your cabinets and change out the hardware. This is an inexpensive project that most individuals can do themselves. There are a variety of hardware pieces sold in hardware stores, and this makes it easy to find pieces that fit your individual style.

The first step in any interior-design project is to determine the mood you wish to create in your space. Whether you are trying to convey tranquility and calm or vibrant energy, keeping the mood in mind while you make your design choices will help you create a cohesive look in your room.

Focal Point in Your Decor

Interior Design Feature PieceEvery room needs a focal point. A focal point adds a highlight to any space and serves as the basis for all other design decisions in the room. Any other features, furnishings and accent pieces in the room should draw attention or enhance the focal point, not compete with it in any way.

If you’re feeling uninspired, pick a single piece you love and build your room around that. Do you have a family heirloom lamp you’re excited to display? A beautifully framed picture of your loved ones? When you use a piece, you love as a starting point, it’ll be easy to put together an entire room that feels special.

Wallpaper or Paint?

Add wallpaper to half of the wall. Redoing an entire wall isn’t necessary and can cost far more than it needs to. You can save money by just putting wallpaper on half of the wall. Coordinate the wallpaper with a border that’s bold then choose a paint color for the rest of the wall. This is an excellent way to get a stylish looking home while also saving money.

A great interior-design tip for budget minded individuals is to switch up your rooms completely. Turn your office into the bedroom and your bedroom into the new office! With completely different functions, furniture and decorations, each new room takes on an entirely new look and personality. It’s also a total and enjoyable change up for you, that costs nothing.

Living Room and Dining Room

If your living and dining areas are in the same room and you would like to redesign the space to separate them, consider different flooring options. A carpet in one room and wood in another will really distinguish the two rooms with elegance. Also, a tall, free-standing screen can make a very stylish room divider in this area.

Not all of your living room furniture has to directly face the TV. It is always nice to have a conversation area or an additional spot to sit in away from the noise of the television. This area can be used to share a cup of tea with friends while you catch up.

If you have a big enough living room to pull the furniture off of the wall and create a more interesting space for you and your family. Putting the furniture smack dab against the wall is a huge mistake people make when they are arranging the furniture in their living room.

Artworks to Complete the Picture!

Hanging artwork on a wall is a great way to liven up any room. However, it is important that you do not put up too much; this will just make the room look cluttered. If you have a large wall and want to fill up space, just get a larger piece of art. This of course does not necessarily need to be a painting. Artworks can range from paintings, to sculptures, to carved items, to any number of decorative pieces that are eye catching!

Few things are more rewarding than dressing your home up in style and with the right tips and tricks up your sleeve, there is no limit to what you can create.

Boho Bags

Boho Bags or Italian Handbags?

Tips For Buying An Italian Handbag

If you could bring home one piece of clothing or accessory made in Italy, you may want to choose an Italian handbag. While this year’s dress is next year’s rag, a quality handbag will literally look stylish for decades.

Of course, many people take one look at the cost of the better Italian handbags and decide that these bags are simply too expensive. However, if you think about how many times you will be using that handbag over the next ten years and then divide the price of the handbag by that number, you may be surprised to find that a good handbag is actually a better deal than most other pieces of clothing.

After all, if you buy a ten dollar shirt because it is on sale and only wear it twice, it costs you five dollars for each use. A one hundred dollar handbag that you use thirty times only costs you about three dollars for each use. Most people use a good handbag several hundred times a year.

Although Italian handbags come in a range of prices, a top quality calf leather handbag can cost as much as four or five hundred dollars; and even several thousand dollars if it’s from a well-known designer. Although you may not be able to tell the supple soft calf leather bag from a less expensive bag made with cowhide by looking at the bags, you can certainly feel the difference. Calf leather is smooth and flexible.

If you can’t afford a good leather Italian handbag, there are some other choices. The same care and craftsmanship that makes leather handbags so popular goes into the popular soft leather boho bags that are all the rage today.

Finally, be sure you do not buy a handbag that looks like a quality Italian handbag at first glance, but actually turns out to be a knockoff. You’d be much better off investing in gorgeous fringed boho bags that come in a number of stunning colors and designs.

Roaring 20s Wedding Feather Headdresses

Roaring Twenties Wedding Theme

Whether it’s the Great Gatsby or the look of gangsters, a roaring twenties wedding theme can add a fun and unusual spin to any wedding. If you are interested in being united in the look of the twenties, here are some different ideas to get you started.

The 1920’s had a style all its own and with a twenties wedding theme, planning will be enjoyable and memorable. Start by transforming your wedding party into an era of “speakeasy” with costumes resembling Eliot Ness, Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Malone, and John Dillinger. You and your future husband can also think about dressing yourselves up as Bonnie and Clyde.

The bride’s dress should fit into the twenties wedding theme. Have a seamstress design one with an intermission hemline, making it shorter in front and long in the back. Dropped waistline and pleated skirts were a popular look in the twenties and would make a beautiful wedding dress. For headdress, try a Juliet cap, coronet or a simple band of silk flowers worn lower on the forehead. Don’t forget stockings (pantyhose) that have noticeable seams. These were a big look for women of the twenties.

The bridesmaids of the roaring twenties wedding party can dress in flapper dresses with long, dangling bead necklaces, feather boas and seamed stockings. Remember the bright red lipstick. No twenties rendition would be complete without it!

Zoot suits, English driving caps, suspenders and wing tip shoes were the craze for grooms and groomsmen in the roaring twenties. Most tuxedo shops will either carry great selections from this era or know of another shop you can visit to find this great attire.

For a roaring twenties wedding theme, think glittering lights, rough men, and romance. Although known for its crime age, the twenties also became known as the Jazz Age, with the likes of flappers and the Charleston. Music was upbeat and enjoyable, skirts were short and the economy had everyone in high spirits. This is the feel you want to incorporate into your wedding theme.

Think about your invitations and what you want them to say. These will initially set the mood of your guests before they even attend your big day. Include passwords on the invitation and have two friends stand at the door of the reception and ask guests to recite the password if they want to enter. Be original. Use different passwords on different invitations, depending on the guest.

If it is an old school friend, use your nickname from high school as the password. If your grandma had a name she called you, use this as her password. Also on the invitation, let your guests know that although they are not required to wear attire fit for the theme, it is welcomed and would be fun.

Name your reception tables when seating your guests at your roaring twenties reception. Have an ‘Al Capone’ table, a ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ table, which can be used for the wedding party, and a ‘Lucky Luciano’ table. Attach guest names to long cigarette holders that were used in that era.

Another great idea for your roaring twenties theme is to include on the invitations that there will be contests held during the reception. Have the disk jockey play jazz music, swing music and organize these contests. You can include a contest for best dance and best costume. You can also set up a booth for your guests to have their photos taken as a souvenir to take home.

With a roaring twenties wedding theme, your wedding is sure to not be forgotten by your guests and will make long lasting memories for you and your ‘Clyde’.
