Designer Wood Table With A Creative Touch

A very famous New York based artist Nico Yektai has an art to create artistic and complicated furniture from solid wood. The desk shown below surely bends the rules to modern furniture design and th wood seems to come alive in the artist`s vision. As I mentioned above complicated, by that I mean the drawers have been pulled with everything else and they open in different directions forcing the person to surrender to the desire of the desk since their preconceived notion of pulling the drawers straight out does not get the drawer open. Watching the moment always puts a smile on my face. It is a boon to have such artistic furniture in your home cause it surely makes people feel jealous of your interiors.

Transform your bedroom into a place of beauty

This summer, why not turn your bedroom into a haven of tranquillity:a room you can go to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, to relax, rejuvenate and just spend time alone with your thoughts or spend precious moments with your loved one. Bedrooms are increasingly becoming more than just somewhere to store your clothes and to lay your head at night. Instead, more and more people are transforming bedrooms into an extra area of living space within their home and are experiencing the joy that comes from giving their bedroom a touch of tender, loving care.

Summer 2013 is set to be full of the latest interior design trends for bedrooms. With the focus being on a feeling of space and openness, take care not to clutter your room remembering, at all times, the phrase ‘less is more’. This summer is going to see an increase in demand for something out of the ordinary, leaving behind anything remotely dull or droll. Think cathedral ceilings, walk in wardrobes with oodles of space for your summer outfits and footwear, his and her sinks, strategically placed television screens (facing the bathtub should do the trick!).

To add to the sense of luxury, why not indulge in a mini fridge or a pop-up TV screen at the end of your bed. Think of the nicest hotel room you have ever stayed in and take inspiration from that. Summer 2013 really is about moving away from the norm and transforming your bedroom into somewhere quite special… a place of peace and tranquillity, not just for the end of the day but for anytime you need to step away from the chaos of everyday life. 

In larger bedrooms, separate designated sitting areas are increasingly popular and spaces under the window can also be turned into love seats, with silk cushions or velveteen throws. Blackout blinds have always been popular, aiding a good night’s sleep, and – if you have the space – a beautiful fireplace makes a wonderful main feature. 

When choosing a colour scheme for your bedroom, emeralds, greys and pastel colours are to be the trend of the season, while multiple textures on walls and surfaces are increasingly popular. Wall to wall carpet is less in favour with a notable preference being wooden floors and luxurious rugs.

This summer, devour our hints and tips, and make this the year you transform your bedroom into a haven of tranquillity.

Wonderful Looking Lamps for Making Your Home Look Radiant

Lighting is one of the most important features in your home décor. You should so arrange that there is a lamp every ten feet or so in that there will be enough ambient lighting generally and you will have a task light where it is most needed. Table lamps, wall lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers and pendant lamps all are good sources of light for your home.

If you are using a pedestal lamp positioned in one corner of the room, there may be some chances of shadows if the pedestal is not tall enough. A tall pedestal lamp with a transparent or translucent paper or a fabric lamp shade can give a good amount of lighting with a glow. Make sure that the pedestal lamps have solid base and properly and safely wired.

When you place a lamp on a coffee table or a side table, make sure that it is not positioned in between so that people sitting on either side are not able to view each other clearly. Also the height of the lamp should be correct. The shade must be at a level so that there is no glare hitting the eyes of people sitting in chairs next to it.

Along with a chandelier or a pendant lamp over the dining room, it will be a good idea to have a desk lamp on the sideboards or a couple of wall sconces on either side of dining table so you have enough light to see what are the dishes/drinks on the sideboard etc. You can have some of the lamps that resemble candles in the chandelier.

If you want to have a lamp in your bedroom, you should see to it that you have a power switch near the bed so you do not have to get up to switch off when you are sleepy. You can position a couple of reading lamps near the headboard – if the headboard does not have built-in lights. A dimmer switch can help reduce the light if you are used to watching TV while lying on the bed.

Here are some beautiful looking lamps from Melody Maison Co. You can see how beautiful wall sconce looks. There are other lamps with bird sculptures, and other designs. The pleated red gingham style shade looks really fabulous and so is the lamp with the linen shade. Don’t you think your bedroom will look nice with the lamp with a pewter base?
