Carpets have been an integral part of any room ever since our nomadic ancestors realized their benefits – easily rolled up, portable, comfortable and beautiful. Today, these unique pieces can work with just about any design style and maintained properly they remain beautiful for many years.
Whether your home office is designated space for running a business, the occasional telecommute, or simply a nook for paying bills and organizing your schedule, you deserve more than a metal desk and extra chair stuffed into a spare corner. An office that reflects the design and comfort of the rest of your home is a place you’ll be happy spending the workday in. Here are some tips for creating a charming, but practical work space.
Humans not only crave light, we need it for physical health. In winter especially it’s not easy to get enough light through the windows, so we need to supplement to turn a dull room into something vibrant. And on summer evenings, we need a little ambiance. But different rooms require different kinds of lighting which is where the notion of layering the light comes in.
Always the last room in the house to get an update, the bedroom is the one place that is entirely your own, especially if you have children. So make it a place you will want to spend time in, by taking some decorating tips from hotels to create the most restful, romantic space you’ve ever seen.
Home décor works pretty much like your wardrobe – buy the best quality you can but plan out your purchases ahead of time. Think of it as an investment because classic quality lasts, is always comfortable, and never goes out of style. Do your research and choose tried and true styles and a manufacturer with a solid reputation. A well-made sofa or chair is going to be more expensive, but its comfort, classic style and good proportions make it worth reupholstering in 10 years, while the poorly made sofa you be put to the curb in five.
When buying furniture, it helps to think in terms of flexibility. You want the piece to grow with you and your needs and your changing housing situation, so think carefully about how timeless a piece is. And remember the basic rule is choose classic, neutral foundation pieces and incorporate colour or pattern in accessories.
Considering we spend up to a third of our lives in bed, what you choose to sleep on is very important. It doesn’t end just with the mattress either – it’s about the sheets and pillows and comforters. This is even more important when you’re getting married because there are two of you to think about. Both of you need to like the look and get a good nights sleep.
Urban Chic has that hipster twist to it. It doesn’t have to be new, in fact, it’s probably better if it’s not. It’s stylish, a little boho, funky, quirky but definitely on trend. There’s a layered feel to it, thanks to collecting over a few years, items picked up on holidays, a kilim or vintage oriental from a flea market, cowhide rugs, a funky 1950s lamp inherited from your grandparents, a button-tufted settee recovered in purple velvet, vintage Coke signs that hung in your parents’ basement rec room over the avocado green bar fridge. All this can be repurposed to create a beautiful Urban Chic look – everything depends on how it’s arranged and what it’s paired with.
