Charming Coffee Tables For Living Room


Living room normally gets the best of our furniture. We pick out living room sofas and sectionals with lot of care and attention. We plan for the exact space available and needs of the house and ask the advice from an interior expert or a designer of your choice. We get the best of furnishings and upholstery as well as accessories like coffee tables for the living room.

Coffee tables are accessories and very important additions to living room furniture. Many times we need one extra one for convenience sake over and above what comes with sofas. You can mix and match a new modern looking coffee table with traditional style sofa sets or contemporary style furniture. A glass topped coffee table or side table goes perfectly with any kind of décor.

Most popular coffee tables come as wooden base tables with glass tops. There are full solid wood console tables and coffee tables which add such a nice touch to the entire room. There are metal frame tables also available and look very sleek and elegant. Clean cut designed metal console tables and coffee tables are much in demand.

What size should an ideal coffee table be? The height should not be more than 18 inches. If it is less than 15 inches it may be too low and not very convenient. Higher tables are actually more preferable. Normal dining table high console tables when set against a wall can hold extra glasses etc when you are entertaining guests at your home.

You can choose the coffee table to be nearly the same height or just a little lower than the sofa seat for conveniently keeping the cup-saucer or glasses etc. If you are going to keep the coffee table as central table, it should be about two-thirds of the length of your sofa set to give a harmoniously blended look with the other sofa and accent chairs.

Also you should check for enough moving space in and around the coffee tables for easy movements. Many tables have shelves underneath for storing magazines and other items. Coffee tables are used as display tables also for your photos, curios and beautiful flowers

Beautiful Christmas Themes for Your Dining Room


Getting ready for Christmas celebrations this month? What are your plans? Have you done all the preliminary cleaning, de-cluttering and sprucing up your entire home. Do all your rooms look spacious and ready to get set for the festival season? What are your plans for your dining room and dining table this Christmas and the New Year day?

Getting ready for Christmas decorations and party, celebrations, and party & fun times can be quite exciting. It can be quite stressful and exhausting also. To plan months ahead is not always possible and the last minute rush seems unavoidable as there are just too many things to do and days seem to be speeding so fast as of they have a pair of wings.

One of the most important aspects of the festival is the Christmas dinner and Christmas lights decor. Maybe you have a lot of friends and relatives visiting you and you may be planning for an elaborate dinner. How have you prepared for this? Have you done your grocery shopping already? You can have an exhaustive list drawn up that you may need for the baking and cooking of the Christmas feast.

Also you must get your dining room ready for the feast. Do you have a big-size formal dining room or is it a living room-dining area combination. Is the table large and sufficiently big to accommodate all the family and guests? I hope you have got enough sideboards and console tables that can take up the load of soft drinks, wine and other condiments.

Have you planned for any new purchases to make the decor complete. You can always go in for extra cutlery, china, and other accessories around festival time when they offer great deals and discounts. Many a time when we set aside a chunk of our savings for celebration time expenditure, we can buy our day-to-day needs also so that we have everything ready.

Many a time, purchasing new cutlery and crockery is best done just before Christmas. Stores offer festival discount and some of them can offer year-end sales also. You can buy something special just for Christmas and maybe other items also. Think of the joy and happiness we may have by the special dinner enhanced with new crockery and cutlery!

Here is some pretty looking china in Christmas theme from Sainsbury’s. These are beautiful fine china dinnerware for your dining table or these can be given as gifts which will be cherished forever. Check what you like most?

Terrific Looking Teen Rooms

As children grow, their tastes and likings also change a lot. What appealed to them when they were young and pre-teens are no longer of interest to them but they are interested in something fresh and fanciful. As they grow, they love a youthful and chic look with a sophisticated finish where they can bring their friends easily and happily.

Youth want rooms where they like to stay their waking/sleeping hours while inside the home. Here is where they stay doing their home work, projects and other study related activities. Here is where they relax, listen to music, go online and chat and connect on the social media and generally enjoy themselves. Here is where they bring their friends for group activities.

Though girls might have liked Barbie doll like décor in their younger days, they might have outgrown it and may want something more upend and modern. Likewise the cartoon or jungle themes might have been outgrown by the boys when they are turning into grown up guys. So their rooms also should reflect what they are today and what their needs are today.

Small or big, each teenager loves privacy and that their room is self sustaining. They like to have their work area, media center, play station and study area all within the same room. If they have been involved while the room’s décor is being planned and once they feel that the room is theirs, they may keep the room tidy and neat all on their own.

Here are some images of teen room designs and ideas by Eugene Zhdanov. You can see the how stylish and elegant these rooms are and how well floor and wall space are utilized to create a harmonious and happy blend. The wall colors are a mix of neutral and lively vibrant shades creating a pulsating and elegant stylish effect.

One of the rooms has the work area elevated on a platform which can hold the trundle bed when not in use. There are other storage shelves also built in to the platform for extra storage. The other room has a window seat converted into a work credenza holding a computer and other study related material with an executive chair.

Bigger rooms can have seating accommodation like sofas and accent chairs along with study area, beds and work-out areas as shown here? Which of them is your favorite?

Making Loft Homes More Comfortable

Lofts are huge and open draughty kind of places. Most lofts are high ceilinged and with windows that are large from floor to ceiling main source of light and ventilation. For the past few decades lofts have been popular with artists and students who did not mind the industrial type of interiors that may not be exactly the way traditional homes are built.

But today lofts are eagerly sought after by people who like the very unique features that characterize a loft – like high ceilings and large open spaces. Architects and designers are cashing on the very shortfalls of loft areas and make them into beautifully open and lit structures that have plenty of ventilation and airy spacious feeling.

A loft can be best converted as an open type design house. Large and spacious living areas contain the seating arrangements, dining areas with table chairs and open type kitchens that make the large areas cozy and homely. Smaller size segregated bedrooms are created – sometimes at a higher mezzanine level and furnished with preferably simple and suitably low hung furniture.

Decorating a loft house may need advice from an interior decorator for bringing in a touch of coziness and warmth. If you are retaining the original loft walls, they can be made to be with distressed look that will add depth to the whole atmosphere. And wooden flooring can be used for creating warmth and elegance to the interiors.

Here you can see images of a loft home that has furniture from B & B Italia. Look at the great looking living room with beautiful looking luxurious sectional in soft purple with ottomans in red, white and mauve making the room pretty. A contemporary style open wall supported shelf unit makes for storage purposes, finished in white and goes well with the light grey walls of the loft. Accent chairs in gray look cozy across the purple sectional.

The dining table is long and simple in design. Accent chairs in plastic in varied colors are used as dining chairs. More such chairs are used to pair with the wooden working table that has a unique triangular top.

The maroon color is repeated in the bedroom for bed frame upholstery. Low platform bed with metal frame with wooden headboard and wooden nightstand make the room comfortable. The bedroom is made cozier with a rug and recliner – a chaise lounge for relaxing with a pedestal lamp nearby completing the ambiance of the loft.
