Reduce Clutter And Make Your Home More Beautiful And Elegant

lovely-looking-kitchen-dining-area

One of the main reasons that reduce the beauty of any home is unnecessary clutter. Most of us, when we start off, have fewer articles and so have a nice-looking home with minimal number of furniture. But as times goes by, we accumulate more and more and we do not have sufficient space to arrange all of them with the result house loses the original beauty and charm. Right from furniture pieces like chairs, tables, side tables, ottoman, day-beds, and even what add to the storage like shelves and display shelves – all if in excess – do not bring balance and harmony but make the house look like a warehouse and not a well-kept home. Equally bothersome can be the accessories like extra curios, artifacts, books and CD’s etc.

Again kitchens start losing their charm and spacious looks with too many utensils, old and unused bottles, containers etc. This can escalate in to an alarming state of affairs if you do not De-clutter the house periodically. Start room by room, check each and every item and decide which need to be kept, which can be given away and which to trash. This is the best time to start De-cluttering your house, before the rains and subsequent winter season’s arrival. Rains can make things go bad and due to the humid moist atmosphere, fungus can play havoc with all things – right from your clothes to leather items as well grocery and perishable items that have become accumulated over time.

Be ruthless and decisive when you are going through all the stuff you have in your home. If you have not used any item in the past six months, chances are you will not use it likely in the near future either. If the article is in good shape, only not useful to you, give it away to somebody who may use it gratefully. What is not useful, trash it without hesitation. If you have a large number of items in good condition, but which you do not require, you can arrange to have a garage sale with nominal rates – almost next to nothing – so people are encouraged to take it, you can get rid of a lot of items. The rest you can just give it away. If you have been really strict, you would find you have De-cluttered successfully.

Once De-cluttered, your home can look as beautiful as these from Moscow-Roma!

Color Schemes to Make Beautiful Picture-Perfect Home Decor

How do you feel when you walk into a perfectly finished house? You feel as happy as if you are in a garden in spring time; everything happily co-ordinated and blended harmoniously giving that satisfaction of completeness. Many a time, a house with best décor not only makes you feel happy but stirs memories of good old times when you were happier. Getting this kind of perfect blend of colouring and co-ordinated décor is not impossible. It just takes more planning and forward thinking so that you have the satisfaction of seeing your furniture highlighted perfectly, upholstery set off nicely and overall ambiance greatly enhanced and you are complimented on the home décor by all who visit the home.

A stylish and sophisticated look is achieved with choosing wall colours wisely that co-ordinate with your furniture colour, upholstery fabric, your draperies, your cushions, bolsters, rugs and other accessories in the room. Most of the time solid wooden furniture blends well when the wall color does not clash with the finish of the wood or upholstery material color. When your furniture is dark brown/brown – like with teak/walnut finish, it is best to use blues – various shades of it – lighter tones – to set off the teak/walnut finish to perfection. If you have dark maroon/red toned furniture like mahogany or cedar veneer, a color like green – shades of it – will set off the furniture beautifully.

If you have a huge room, you can go for warmer colours. They make the room cozier and closer. If you happen to have a small house or an apartment, it is best to stick to cool pastel shades. They make the room look larger and more spacious. But you can get a happier blended effect by adding to a room in cool colour some accents of warm colour on just one wall and make it look dramatic. Use warm colors for dining and living rooms and cool relaxing colours in your bedroom. Patios can look best in shades of green. You can experiment with some trims to add to the overall effect. Trims need not be only in full white. You can try out some lighter shades of beige, gray etc to give the same crisp effect as a white trim will give.

Here are some stunning looking rooms done by Brown Buckley Inc. Enjoy the sheer beauty of the rooms. Hope you must be keen to have such great-looking rooms?

Tradition & Celebration – Christmas Brings Joy to All

Beautiful sense of tradition and joy of celebration make Christmas special to all of us. Each Christmas brings us the memories of all the Christmas seasons we have had since childhood and we pass on the tradition and values to our children as well. Christmas tree, lights, illuminations, decorations, Christmas feast and gifts – all are too important to be missed.

Though Christmas is all about tradition and family customs, we can change the way we decorate the trees, wrap the gifts, and serve the feast and light up the house. You can choose a theme as the focus of the celebration and do all the activities to match the theme and treat this as an opportunity to work as a team with our children to create a new Christmas look.

If you are thinking of gold and glowing cream as the theme for the Christmas, you can make all ornaments, decorations, lightings, gift wrappings, dining room and living room wall décor, furniture upholstery and cushions and rugs in a matching color combination and make this entire Christmas celebration a gold and cream expression of your own style statement.

Check out what ornaments you have that will match the colour scheme you are going to adopt this year. And start creating your own decorations or hunt for decorations in the same colour combinations so that your ornaments and glitter tinsel, garlands and other decorations are all in the same golden and cream combinations.

Check out how to make all the illuminations and lights to be in the same colour. Now that you have coloured mini lamps and serial lamp strings, you can use them. You can mix and match the golden and amber coloured bulbs with red, green and blue to give a layered look that will add depth to the decoration and colour scheme.

Choose gift wrapping papers in the same colour combinations. And use golden coloured ribbons to tie a bow for the gifts. Use the same colour for your table arrangements and napkins etc. With upholstery in the same colour combinations and wall décor also matching, you can have a beautiful colour schemed Christmas celebration that will look stunning.
