Ho, Ho, No – Santa-Free Winter Décor

Sometimes winter feels like little more than frozen gray slush piles and red fat suits. Winter décor can seem equally sparse or simply aimed at pleasing children. Many of us want to change up with the season, but without solely focusing on Christmas. You’ve already learned how to winterize your bedroom, but there are many ideas for the rest of the home.





























I’m forever wondering why winter-trimmings seem to mimic the outside world: trees, branches and ornaments artfully flocked with fake snow, shiny plastic icicles, themes in cool silvery tones and stark white. Unless you live in a climate that’s never seen a single snowflake, you’ll probably want to leave the cold weather outdoors.

Don’t be afraid to avoid the typical red and green overload. Sure, good tidings abound and Kris Kringle is the man of the hour, but there’s no need to go Griswold and turn your home into a shrine to goodol’ Saint Nick. I’ve always been wondering what those yard inflatable’s do with a power bill…

Warmth and comfort are the keys here. Plush carpeting becomes a snuggly focal point. If you’ve got hardwood or laminate flooring, consider a cozy area rug for the duration of the season. Plump pillows and soft throw blankets draped on your sofa and chairs are inviting for guests. Heavy drapes double as a form of insulation over frosty windows, so consider adding some padding to your window treatments.

Soft lighting schemes are one of the quickest ways to get cozy for winter. Candles are at the top of the list, but seriously, be careful. It’s little surprise that December is the number one month for candle fires starting in the home. White colored Christmas lights are a fun lighting choice year-round but obviously fit in best during the winter months. Outfit your accent lamps with lower wattage (or even yellow-y) bulbs for intimate, ambient lighting.

The internet must have been designed to give us inspiration for fun crafting projects. Wreaths and garlands featuring natural elements like evergreen boughs and pine cones are a classic. Consider the myriad of decorative and ornamental uses for things like cranberries, acorns, cinnamon sticks, apples or whole cloves. Dried plants and flowers are seasonally accurate and look rustic. Potted bulbs, such as canna lilies, can brighten the mood.
































If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, let it be your centerpiece during winter. Wood burning fireplaces are ideal, and a pain, so don’t rule out the fake kind – there are portable gas and electric versions available for any home. Even if you just have a mantle without a fireplace, consider throwing a couple candles in there to highlight it.

How to Compliment a Garden Centerpiece

The centerpiece of your garden is the place where your eye is first drawn when you look at it. It’s the focus, like the main object in a painting. A centerpiece can be anything; a fountain, a statue, a rock formation, a seating area, or a flower bed, as long as it draws the viewer’s attention. To make sure that your chosen centerpiece actually functions to fulfill the role that you’ve selected for it, you need to set up some subtle (and some less-subtle) clues that will direct the attention of your viewer toward it.

Visibility

The first and most important bit about your centerpiece is that it should be highly visible. That means that when designing and putting together the surrounding landscaping you should focus on removing extraneous items that might draw attention away from the item, and situating the centerpiece in a very visible spot, perhaps on a raised platform, a berm, or simply in an open space. It should not need to share the spotlight with anything else.

It does not need to be in the objective center of the garden, as the word may imply. Rather your centerpiece is the object of that subjectively determines the center of the viewer.

Direction of Attention

Attention can be grabbed in a variety of ways that don’t actually involve the item you’re drawing done anything particularly conspicuous. The trick is to make everything else in the garden point to the object. If your garden has a walkway then that walkway goes directly to your centerpiece. If there is a formation of bushes or trees then the line of symmetry will be dictated by the centerpiece. If the sun is rising or setting it better travelling right over your centerpiece. Alright that might be pushing it, but you get the idea. All roads lead to Rome, where Rome is the focus of your garden and roads are everything else located in the garden.

Color and Symmetry

Whether your centerpiece matches its surroundings as far as color is concerned are of relatively little significance; however making sure that all of the other things in your garden match each other is imperative. Nothing should look in any way obtrusive, asymmetrical, or attention-grabbing except your centerpiece. That doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be interesting. On the contrary, often the most intricate artistic details are to be found not in the centerpiece, but rather its surroundings. The care put into these reflects positively on the focus, even when it’s not consciously absorbed. For the more watchful, these details are a delight to enjoy, but not until after the main event has had its moment, as is its place.

The Background

Like a single red flower upstaging an entire meadow of white, you can use the colors in your garden to direct focus. Your centerpiece may have many colors, but if you make it unique by giving it a color that the rest of the garden does not have, then it will stand out more.

For example, if your centerpiece is a red sandstone boulder covered in patches of blue lichen and green moss, you have a lot of colors to work with. You could match it with a decorative bird feeder, your flowers, or even a fluffy cat, without sacrificing the dominance of your centerpiece as long as you give it a monopoly on one of those colors.

So keep in mind, the centerpiece of your garden is the focal point, the axis of symmetry, and the most visible part of your garden. Everything else in it serves to help draw your attention to it. It’s a lot like fashion and make-up; it should draw attention to the wearer, not itself. In the same way the complementing décor should not draw much attention to itself, instead providing a frame that serves to accentuate the focus.

Top 5 Lighting Tips for Your Living Room

With the winter months fast approaching and the chilly evenings getting longer, the lighting we incorporate into our living room interior becomes all the more important for creating ambiance and warmth.

The lighting you choose for your room can have a massive effect on the feel of the space. And when the rain, wind and snow force you to spend more and more of your nights tucked up in front of the telly with your loved ones, it’s essential that you get the lighting just right.

That’s why we’ve created this all important guide to choosing your living room lighting this winter; helping you make the choice that’s practical, stylish and effective.

Warmth

As the temperature plummets, it comes as no surprise that most of us want to inject warmth and comfort into our room. The easiest way of achieving this is with effective lighting.

It goes without saying that that you should opt for yellow lighting, as opposed to harsher and colder white light. You should also look for lamps which incorporate warm colours in their shades, like this beige faux silk shade. For added warmth, choose a brass or wooden design for the bass.



(Madrid Table Lamp, in Antique Brass, £49.50, available from Mail Order Lighting.)

Luxury

As a rule, I never actually use the room’s ceiling lights, with the exception of kitchens and bathrooms. However, if for whatever reason you need to use the ceiling light in your living room, you can detract from the somewhat harsh effect this has by choosing a design that incorporates jewels or crystals, for a look that’s opulent, charming and welcoming.

Take a look at the range of Dar lighting at Mail Order Lighting, for some great examples which incorporates these design features.

Modernity

A living room’s lighting isn’t restricted to your lamps and ceiling fixtures. Sometimes, when the weather turns particularly nasty, there is nothing better than the warm glow of a gorgeously inviting fire.

These days, you don’t even have to have a fireplace to enjoy the iconic notion of sitting by the fireside. Options like this SmegFlueless Gas Fire, available to buy online from John Lewis, make it possible for anyone to bring the warming glow and subtle lighting of a fire into their home.

Tradition

Nothing says cosy like traditional interior design features. While you may not want to completely transform you room into a testament to classic design, it is possible to enhance a room’s element of tradition with the addition of lighting.

Something like the classic Tiffany lamp adds style and sophistication to a space and incorporates gorgeous warm colours, perfect for battling the winter blues.



                                 (Raindrop Table Lamp, with Tiffany Glass, £63.36, at Mail Order Lighting.)

Function

I’ve never been able to see the beauty in reading or desk lamps. Even iconic designs, such as the traditional brass base with green glass shade, while undoubtedly a classic, should be confined to the study; and modern designs with their hinges and maneuverability… well they’re just plain ugly.

However, if you spend the majority of the winter months lost in a selection of your favourite beach reads, dreaming of white sands and blue skies, then you’ll struggle to read by firelight alone. That’s why I’m a big fan of small reading lights like this one from Water stones, which can be attached to your book as and when you need it. What’s more, you can enjoy reading your favourite book in clear lighting and bask in the subtle and calming lighting of the fire. Sounds like total heaven if you ask me!

Luxurious Makeover for Your Bathroom

The bathroom has grown to be one of the best-loved rooms in many households. For many of us our bathroom is a place where we can unwind, allowing ourselves to take some time out from our busy lives, sit back, and relax.




Relaxation can be achieved in a variety of forms and where better to start than in your bathroom. We all need a bit of luxury in our lives so we’ve found some products that could be used as part of your own luxurious bathroom makeover.

Wet rooms


Wet rooms have become an increasing popular feature in many bathrooms. Not only do wet rooms look fantastic, giving a sleek contemporary feel, but also they are also highly practical. Wet rooms are extremely easy to clean and they are accessible for children and those with mobility problems.

A wet room can be installed in almost any home and is an ideal solution for many small or unusually shaped bathrooms. Wet rooms are a desired feature to any bathroom and can even add value to your home.

Hot tubs



Hot tubs used to be a product that you could only dream of having, now they have become readily available, even though they are still a luxury product they are now a lot more affordable to buy and run.

Hot tubs are a perfect way to de-stress and relax after a long day at work. There is no better way to spend your evening than in the tub with a box of chocolates or even a glass of wine. Let your troubles melt away as you sit back and revive your body and mind. You can read more about the benefits of Hot Tubs on iconic hot tubs blog.

Heated towel rails


As the winter months are drawing nearer we are all thinking about ways that we plan to keep warm. A heated towel rail can be an asset to any bathroom and with a large array of designs and shapes to choose from it could be just what you need over these cold winter months.

You may think that heated towel is a bit extravagant for the everyday bathroom but you would be surprised at its benefits. Heated towel rails can keep your bathroom at a reasonable temperature, helping you to save money on increasing energy bills.

Waterproof Televisions


Many people have dreamed about relaxing in the tub whilst watching their favourite TV shows and now it’s possible. There are now an exclusive range of waterproof televisions that come in a wide variety of colours and styles to suit you.

These amazing digital LCD televisions were created and tested specifically for use in wet areas, so there is no need to worry about losing picture or sound quality. The glass screens are heated to prevent condensation from forming in high humidity and they even come with a waterproof remote.

Under floor heating


Underfloor heating is a modern and high- spec feature allowing you to enjoy the luxury of warm floors when showering in the mornings and even providing a good selling point when selling your property.

You may not need this in the summer months but during our long cold winters, under floor heating can be a blessing in disguise. Underfloor heating is thought to be a more efficient way of heating a room. The room's walls, doors and windows are well insulated - because of the way the heat is distributed; it also means that you can get rid of your bulky radiators giving your bathroom a nice clean finish.

Five Tips for Your Outdoor Home Improvements




Maintaining your home and making improvements are crucial ways to maintain your investment and the enjoyment you get out of your home. Certain improvements can increase the value of your home, save you money on your homeowner's insurance, or qualify you for tax breaks.

Keep Up On Repairs

No one likes major projects, like residing or roofing your home, but it is important to stay on top of these repairs. Keep track of your warranties, and the expected life of important home features such as your roof, as keeping these items in good repair, can save you thousands of dollars down the road.

Look For Tax Rebates

Some outdoor home improvements, such as solar panels, have government incentive programs. Before you start a major project, especially if it is a project that will conserve or produce energy in your home, look for these incentive programs to see if you qualify for any tax rebates.

Consider Cost Versus Added Value

Many outdoor home improvements will add resale value to your home, such as landscaping, or installing a tile roof rather than a shingle roof. Do your research to compare how much the improvement will cost, against how much value it will add to your home. For example, installing a swimming pool will add value to your home, but you will most likely pay more to install it, than you will gain in resale value. The personal enjoyment of owning your own pool may be well worth the money lost, but it is important to understand all the factors before you start construction.

Improve Your Home Security

Getting a home security system does more than just improve your peace of mind. It can also significantly lower your homeowners insurance. Home automation systems can help you control lights, door locks, and alarms automatically through your computer or smart phone to make it look like someone is home at any time. Some services also offer alarms, cameras, glass break sensors, smart thermostats, and motion detectors. These features protect your home when you're away, and convince your insurance company that you are less of a financial risk to them.

Consider How Long You Intend To Stay

Some improvements, such as adding solar panels, can save you money in the long run, but only if you intend to stay in your home for a long period. Many solar panels will pay for themselves in electric bill savings within ten years, but if you plan to move in two, it may not be worth the investment. If you'll be looking for a new home soon, you may want to hold off on installing that deck in the backyard, so you will have the funds to install one in your new home.

Outdoor improvements are a great way to maintain your investment in your home, and get some new enjoyment out of an old space. Just be sure to do your research to get the best value for your time and money.

Banish the Blues: Bring Warmth to Your Bedroom this Winter

It’s difficult to admit, especially after what turned out to be something of a glorious summer, but the winter is fast approaching. Dark mornings and chillier evenings are signalling the arrival of the colder weather and with it, the temptation to withdraw indoors and while away the winter months sipping tea and piling on the pounds to stave off the icy chills!


With that in mind, it’s important that our little caves are up to the job of harbouring us for a long winter of hibernation. When it’s cold, we all love to hideout in our bedrooms, where we can truly relax in our most comfortable (and often most unattractive) clothing. That’s why I've created these top tips for bringing some much needed warmth to your bedroom this winter.


Accessories


No one is saying that you have to completely redecorate your bedroom in time for winter. On the contrary, you can enhance the warmth and the inviting feel of your room with a few simple additions.

Naturally, the focal point of any bedroom is the bed - so when you’re looking to alter the design or feel of a room, this is the place to start. Adding cushions and a throw is a simple and relatively inexpensive measure that will increase the sense of opulence and comfort in your bedroom, which is just what you’re looking for on those chilly December nights! When I want to add warmth and decadence, nothing serves me better than gold. That’s why I love this range of gold cushions and throws from very.co.uk.


Function


I’m of the firm opinion that televisions should be banished from bedrooms. Your boudoir should be a sanctuary free from harsh noise and mental stimulation, which is why I despair at people who insist on having a flat screen at the bottom of the bed!

That said, I also believe that your bedroom should offer more than a place to rest your head. Armchairs are a great addition to any bedroom, and provide the perfect spot for curling up with a good book and a warm blanket, when the wind and rain are lashing the windows.

This classic leather chair from the range of designer chairs at Cult Furniture, in the iconic Mies van de Rohe style, is perfect for adding style and sophistication to your room, while providing a wonderfully warm place to snuggle up in when you’re in need of some alone time.



(Miesvaan de Rohe Style Vintage Chair, in Brown Leather, £349.00, available at Cult Furniture.)


Lighting


It’s dark for the majority of theharsh British winter, so we’re left with little alternative but to create our own lighting. It goes without saying that when you’re trying to create a warm atmosphere, lighting is a crucial tool. Opt for yellow, as oppose to harsher white light and use table lamps for a warm and cosy atmosphere.

 Last year I was lucky to find a lantern (a thrift shop find I will cherish for each holiday to come!), so I will be creating a small corner in the porch for trick or treat! This looks easy to do; will be needing ribbons and of course pumpkins!




Black and orange is a lovely theme, complementing each color tone. In addition, the warmth and festiveness of Halloween is portrayed through such décor. Candles are available in many designs and themes. I love using theme shapes and fragrances, they really add a lot to the overall ambience.

·         Count Dracula’s feast:
Dinner table, as no holiday is complete without a grand feast, so is the case with Halloween. Theme inspired menus and table décor create an aura of Count Dracula’s dinner table in every house. I like using colored napkins, table runners, matching cutlery and coasters. Accessorizing is necessary to make any theme complete and final. Flowers are weakness, so orange roses it is!



Using a rustic traditional dining table set and adding spider webs, rusty leaves and details will only add more flavors to the table décor. Last fall I got my dining room set from Shop4Furniture and grabbed a few black candles and net and Voila! A haunted themed dinner table, everyone especially loved my lamp lights covered in black net and I used dried flowers, spray painted black to complete the theme.


·         Easy to do décor for Halloween:
Many of the things used can be done within a budget at home, not requiring you to spend an outrageous amount of money for the holiday! My nephew makes amazing ghosts and spider webs using old white flat sheets and twine and yarn. Similar to the images below:






·         Halloween center pieces:
I like doing centerpieces within the Halloween theme so everyone really gets into the festive mood. This year I am thinking of using candles lying around home and pair them twigs and burlap for a haunted theme; it really is a great fabric to work with and has many creative uses!



Hope you guys enjoyed these great easy to do Halloween ideas for décor! I sure enjoyed sharing them. Thanks for having me Chelsea! Wish you guys have a great spooky holiday season!

Tips and Tricks to Consolidate Space in a Small Apartment


Do you somehow always find yourself just a little bit cramped? Is your kitchen just a little too crowded to use properly, your living room dimensioned a bit oddly, and your bathroom too small to hold your stuff? Join the club. Let’s take a look at a few simple, practical ways to help you make the most of the space that you have so that your home will be more aesthetically pleasing, easier to organize, and less stressful to live in.



Expand your Kitchen

Many of us have this irrational idea that kitchen things necessarily belong in the kitchen. What’s actually important is that your stuff is within easy reach when you’re cooking. If you’ve got space near your kitchen it might be time to expand outward. My incredibly tiny kitchen is situated directly next to a small dining area that opens up to the living room. This dining area is about 3 feet wider than it absolutely needs to be, so to take advantage of this I moved my dining table and chairs to one end of the area, and put a hutch in the cleared area to balance it out. That then can play host to my microwave, toaster oven, coffee machine, dishes, cutting boards, and bowls. This clears up enough space in the kitchen to keep the counters entirely clear and ready for use at all times.


Use Your Walls and Ceilings



Don’t forget to make use of all of the surfaces in your apartment, and we’re not just talking about the horizontal ones. Set up shelves, hutches, cabinets, and wardrobes to help you store your stuff vertically. If you can remove all of the clutter from your environment you can turn a previously cramped space into something downright roomy.

Of course, while it’ll look nicer all of that isn’t going to help much if all of your usable space is now covered in nice decorative items instead of the clutter that we just cleared up, so let’s address decor. If you want to indulge your artistic or botanical side but don’t want to fill your floor and counter space (also end tables and coffee tables) with knick knacks, planters, and vases, consider hanging your plants from the ceiling in baskets, setting your small decorative items up on small decorative shelves, or hanging canvas artwork on the walls rather than setting them on end tables.


Partition Your Living Room

Lots of apartments come with unnecessarily long rectangular living rooms that are virtually impossible to set up in a manner that effectively makes use of all of the space. An easy way to solve this problem is to partition off a section of your living room and turn it into a small office workspace. You can use anything from a full blown false wall to a decorative folding panel screen. This will cut your living room down to size so that your furniture, coffee table etc… can fill out the space properly, all while providing a spot for a computer and work related documents.

Tips About Dream Home Furnishing


Buying a home is perhaps the ultimate American dream. Of course, signing on the dotted line isn’t the end of buying your dream home – in fact, it’s only the beginning for many people. After completing the sale, furnishing your home, making it livable and attractive, are the next big projects any new homeowner must tackle. After all, the home must be a comfortable and relaxing place for you and your family. If you want to turn the home of your dreams into a reality, consider these tips for furnishing your home.



The Bedroom

The bedroom, perhaps, will be your most important focus when it comes to furnishing your home. It is, after all, your most intimate space, the place where you go to relax and take your cares away, plus spend time with your partner. That said, you should carefully consider your bed and bedroom furniture. The size is the first thing you should think about. Now, if you have a lot of space, then consider something like a king platform bed, which is very roomy, even for two people and has a modern look. If you don’t have a lot of space, then going down to a queen would perhaps be a good alternative, but even if you’re single, then the smallest size you should go is a full sized bed. Of course, don’t forget additional furniture like bedside tables and dressers to complete your bedroom’s look.



The Living Room

The living room is the next most important room in your new home. After all, this will be the center of activity, the place where you will spend a lot of time with other family members and entertain your guests. You’ll need a good size couch that’s big enough to accommodate the people in your family, plus additional seating to balance out your living room.



The Kitchen and Dining Room

The kitchen and dining room are, of course, important as well because this is where you will prepare your family meals and partake in them. For most people, dinner is the centerpiece of family life, that time we all come together and share our day with everyone.  If you have the space, you may want a small kitchen table for informal meals like breakfast, although most kitchen spaces will already have counters or nooks and all you’ll need are the right chairs. For your dining room, you will have to think about how many people you want to seat, but you should have enough for everyone in your family, plus at least 2 extra places. Many people prefer the traditional wooden dining table, and who wouldn’t? Many kinds of hardwoods look great as dining room tables, and add a warmth and richness to the dining room. However, those who prefer a more modern look should go with materials that suit their tastes and style, like glass and metal.

Furnishing your dream home doesn’t have to be difficult. You should think about the style that best suits your home and your personal tastes, and cover the basics for your bedroom, living room, kitchen, and dining room and the rest will easily fall into place.

Five Ways to Create The Ultimate Games Room


Games rooms are a great place to escape, unwind and if you’re a lonely soul, make some friends! Create one in your home and you’ll be the most popular guy or gal in town. Below I've listed some tips to help you create the ultimate games room that puts all others to shame.




Choosing the room – 

The first and most obvious decision you’ll have to make is the one of choosing the right room. You’ll want a room that provides ample space for all the tech and games tables you’re going to be stuffing in there. Aim to have the games room on the bottom floor or in the basement if you can. If you have friends over and your room is on the top floor of the house it’s going to sound like a stampede of elephants to anyone sitting on the floor below you.


Pool table – 

American pool tables are a classic choice for every games room. It’s a fun game that everyone can enjoy and anyone can easily pick it up. Make sure you place the table in the center of the room otherwise there’ll be pool cues going through you plasterboard every other week. The pool tables you can purchase can vary in size and weight. Remember that if you’re on the top floor a ridiculously heavy table probably isn't the best idea.


Pinball & arcade machines – 

These retro machines will add style to the room. There was once a time when they could be found everywhere, but now as technology has advanced these classics have been left behind. This in no way means that they aren't fun though! If you want the ultimate in pinball and arcade machines you should definitely go for a personalized one. You can design them yourself and have them depicting your favorite football team or you and your friends.


TV and a video games console – 

For the ultimate games room a stupidly large TV is a must. Having a home cinema in your house will make you the envy of all your friends. You can sit back, enjoy a beer with friends and settle into a film. For that authentic cinema feel you’ll have to make sure that you add a top surround sound system.


Bar – 

All this fun will leave you thirsty so you’re only option is a bar! No games room is complete without a fully kitted out bar area so if you have the room make sure you stick one in there.  You’ll want the flashiest bar that has a crazy amount of drinks for your guests to choose from but try and not get too drunk. Waking up to sick all over your pinball machine isn't pleasant.


These are just some ideas as to how you can fit your games room out but the only limit is your imagination. Your games room is an opportunity to go crazy and stuff it with over the top items that you don’t really need. From home cinema systems to outlandish pinball machines there really is no limit!
