Shabby Chic Décor – A How To Guide

June 28, 2011 at 4:22 pm

This article is going to be a bit more tip oriented rather than me actually taking on a project. I’ve been working a lot recently and haven’t had much time to keep up with requests from friends for help around their house. Instead, this post is going to be focusing on a topic that shows up in my inbox on a regular basis: shabby chic décor. A lot of readers want to achieve this type of look for their new apartment or existing place without spending too much on new furniture. Obviously, a new coat of paint is always a recommendation in my book, as paint can go a long way in transforming a room into a particular vibe. With that long winded introduction out of the way, let’s dive into it. What’s Shabby Chic? When I first heard the term, I wasn’t sure what to think. It took a [...]

Recrafting My Patio into an Artistic Den

June 19, 2011 at 5:42 pm

Decorating the outdoor area of your home can often be the toughest part. Once you’ve gotten all of the couches and televisions into your house, when you step outside onto your porch or patio, it can seem bland. I ran into the same problem when I moved into my home a few months ago and it was just uncomfortable to sit outside on deck chairs without any decoration or outdoor wall art to brighten the place up a bit. At first, I wasn’t quite sure what the outdoor space needed. I don’t have much of an eye for art, so trying to figure out the best way to decorate was a little tough. Luckily, I managed to find some neutral pieces that seemed to flow well with my indoor furniture, as well as the table and chairs set my wife and I purchased for outside. Now, we have one piece [...]

How The Bathroom Vanity Mirror Saved Our Marriage

June 18, 2011 at 12:40 am

My wife and I have an issue in the morning that has almost seemingly driven our marriage apart when it comes to getting ready on some days. My wife likes to wake up early to start working on her makeup for the day. That’s fine. The problem arises when all of her equipment (yes, I call it equipment) makes its way over to my side of the sink and all that I have room for anymore is a toothbrush and maybe a comb. The rest of my stuff has been shoved under the sink and into the medicine cabinet, where it stays until I need it, which is coincidentally every morning. About two weeks ago I got completely fed up with the situation and decided to put all of her stuff in a garbage bag by her sink. Not my most tactful moment. After a friendly wife to husband chat, [...]

Wool Area Rug – The Why What and How

June 7, 2011 at 6:21 am

Though the modern household is generally furnished with an endless list of items that weren’t even invented fifty years ago, there are some furnishings that have very much stood the test of time. Wool area rugs are the perfect example of this. Though invented generations ago, they are still the perfect addition to the modern home. Nothing livens up a dull and drab room quite like an exotic and extravagantly colored wool area rug. And though it is within drab rooms that the greatest effect can be made, just about any room can be improved by the correct choice of woolen rug. I will now outline just why this is the case as well as just how to best decorate with these beautiful household items. Why Wool Area Rugs Are Luxury Items In historical cultures, wool area rugs were a form of currency and this is a pretty clear validation [...]

Zero Gravity Recliner Chair – Our Recommendation

June 2, 2011 at 11:37 am

Zero gravity recliner chairs are the very definition of sitting comfortably as they have been designed to relieve all of the pressures that standing in an upright position exerts upon our bodies. As many people have never even heard of these nifty inventions, I will start by outlining just what they are before explaining the advantages that they offer and recommending my favorite chair. A Chair Designed By NASA? Yes, shockingly enough the design for zero gravity recliner chairs did indeed originate in NASA. Basically when astronauts take off for destinations unknown, they are seated with their feet higher than their hearts. This “zero gravity” position greatly reduces the amount of force that is then exerted on their spine when they travel at the crazy speeds of their rocket. It turns out that this position is not only beneficial to astronauts but to those that just want to put their [...]

Decorating Your Outdoor With Wooden Furniture

May 5, 2011 at 4:49 am

If you are planning on purchasing some outdoor tables and chairs to facilitate relaxing in the sun, I very much recommend sticking with the wooden variety. Like almost all categories of consumer products these days, when choosing outdoor furniture, you are spoiled with a wealth of shapes, sizes and materials to choose from. The reason that I personally prefer wooden outdoor furniture however is that I simply believe it blends far better with the outdoor landscape. After all for many people, their garden is their small sanctuary of nature within a hectic world. I don’t think that that sanctuary should be spoiled by something that will look out of place. And what material can possibly blend in better with nature and trees than wood itself. If you think that you are interested in purchasing outdoor wooden furniture, I will now outline all that you need to know. Key Considerations: Aesthetics [...]
