After 3 days of non-posting we are here again with our useful tips regarding home and home decorations. Hope you’ll like what we will press today, so have a nice time with our fresh posts. Let’s begin! πŸ™‚

Here you have some advices how to paint the walls of the house and get a satisfactory result, begining with the preparation of the walls to the color rendering.

The colors change with the light, both natural and artificial. To decide how to paint the walls of your apartment, first you need to consider the exposure of different environments, the time of day in which you are mostly in the certain room and for how long you will be there

If the room is north-facing, and therefore has little light, will be better warm colors (yellows, reds, etc.), if the exposure is to the south, you can also use less solar colors, even cold ones.

Choose the color to paint the walls

For the rooms which are frequently used are usually suitable lighter colors. Who wants to dare, you should give it a try, perhaps with the help of new technologies: photograph the room with a digital camera and transfer the images to your computer, using special graphics programs you can change the colors on the screen to assess overall effect and try different combinations.

Entire walls or structural elements that can not be modified can be enhanced and putted into relief with a custom use of the color. If you choose very lit or dark colors, better to use them onto details such as cornices, brackets, arches, pillars or columns, fireplace surrounds. Need to be considered, however, that the next painting may require more preparation and more hands to remove all traces of the previous background.

But still, be brave, let your imagination run wild and try to color your walls without being affraid. πŸ™‚

November 28, 2012

We continue to surprise all of you with our exceptional “how to” posts and useful tips. Today we will talk about furniture and how to have well decorated home.

What we have to do is avoid the trendy decor, what is most fashionable is not always right in the complexity of one furnished space. You must look for what is lasting, furniture which is resistant to time and various trends.

So, how can we resist the “decoration” of the moment cultivating authenticity, freshness and originality of our homes?
Here are some ideas:

1) Remain true to yourself.

Choose your furniture according to what you really love – even if the blogs and furnishing magazines say that what you love is not trendy anymore .

2) Need to do a mix

Mix and combine antiques with contemporary pieces, combine expensive items with those from market. Below, the most modern chrome chairs are paired with an old wooden table.

3) Do not buy everything in one place.

If all the furnishings come from the same place, be it Crate and Barrel, Restoration Hardware or IKEA, then your house much more can slide in the look of the moment, and be devoid of personality. We were particularly impressed with how well is furnished one house in South Carolina. Is a house on the beach, which simplifies and highlights the principles that we are dealing with and that we appreciate. The house as a whole is eclectic and very original, focuses on staff. Is made on the basis of many different styles and different eras together, that gives it a touch of freshness.

4) An ambient that is decorated can be more interesting if you add pieces from different periods.

The furnishings seem more dynamic and modern if you combine it with pieces from other periods.. In the picture above, a shag carpet live comfortably with an antique clock. At the bottom, the transparent chairs by Philippe Starck are above fashion when combined with a rustic table. So we think that this could be a great tip if you want to have well decorated and unique interiors.

5) It’s better to have an own idea

It’s great ig you have an idea that makes sense in its generality and complexity, it is best not to follow fads and fashions or even better to know them and try to sort out their fashion and style, creating an interior design that brings with it the idea of ​​his own trend.

6) The art will mainly be a part of your home

Investing in art will give the interior a personality of those who live in and the most original style. It will increase by far the trend of the moment. Make sure that is your passion for art to dictate the choices of furniture.

During this period, it can be too easy to fall into the trap of the trend. But having time and devoting time to furnishings, will help you to analyze your own choices while remaining faithful to your own personality. Personal style will be able to stand the test of time and fashion.
