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.

Get a Bed For Your Bedroom Furniture

We end up spending at least one third of our life on the bed. A good bed is the first step in getting a good night’s sleep and life long pain-free back and healthy life. Right size, tight firmness, right height, and giving the right amount of support are the important aspects when you are checking on buying the right bed for your bedroom – for you, family as well for guests. Price of a bed need not be the only criteria for purchasing the bed. But generally more expensive beds are always of better quality and more comfortable than cheaper variety and they are more luxurious as well as longer lasting than cheaper beds. Also when you get some additional features like storage, and special headboard, the price also goes up.

What are the most important things to keep in mind when you are buying furniture for your bedroom? A good strong and sturdy bedstead, a high-quality supportive and firm mattress and good quality, pretty looking complete set of bed linen and pillows, cushions, bolsters – made of natural fibers preferably – these all items make up your bedroom furniture. Buying a good size bedstead and matching mattress is of extreme importance. Bigger the bed more comfortable will be both you and your spouse. Separate mattresses will be a sensible idea since that will lessen the disturbance caused by partner’s movements. Get mattresses that will have just the right amount of firmness – not hard – for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Once you decide on what will suite your kind of lifestyle, your likes and dislikes, what will fulfill your needs, and what will show off your individual taste and character, you can check out at the local store all the options available for your own bedroom, for the guest room and for the kids rooms as well. You may have to take into account the size of the rooms without fail. Buying a bedstead can take planning and patience. Find out what kind of material will look just right in your home and what will suit the general style and ambience of your home. Discuss with your interior decorator and surf the net for new ideas and innovation in bedsteads and their headboards and footboard details which can be customized.

Here are some single bedsteads for your guest room and kids’ room from Ascot Co. Check what appeals to you most so you can get it for your home.

Bespoke Beds Make Your Bedroom More Beautiful

sophisticated-looking-grey-and brown

Sometimes we have rooms where a standard size bed may not comfortably fit in. Like a corner room with a semi circular wall or with a longish area, where not much option is available for putting up a double or twin bed. If we put up standard-size bed, then we may not have any area left to walk around or use it sensibly. Here is where we may need a bespoke bed! A bespoke bed is also a custom-made bed – more so in that it is made essentially for you and especially to fit your kind of a room. You can actually make it look simple, elegant and attractive. It is just that it enables you to use the room more sensibly and economically so that we will not waste premium space – what we may do without the exactly measure-to-order bespoke bed.

You can get specially created oak beds as bespoke beds or use other solid wood as basic material for making the bespoke bed. You can get specially ordered headboard details on your bespoke bed so that you are able to get the best designed bespoke bed. Many times, all furniture the room able to hold will be just the bespoke bed only. You can actually plan to have some nice bedside table and night stands that match your bespoke bed along with a matching ottoman. You can custom-order the headboard and footer to be fitted with the exact kind of upholstery you may choose. You can have a quilted, or a buttoned down headboard that looks nice and is filled with microfiber foam for firmness.

Since bespoke beds may not adhere to strict standard sized beds, furnishing for the bespoke bed may take more search than the usual off-the-store purchase we do it with standard beds. But today there are enough choices available in getting complete ensembles for your bespoke bed. Custom-tailored bed linen, skirts, cushions, bolsters – all are available. Tere are some beautiful looking bespoke beds from Feather and Black. Look at the beautifully upholstered headboards in solid colours as well their footboards.

Beautiful Damask Fabrics For Home Furnishings


Furniture is the most important of interior decoration aspect. Buying good furniture many times is decided by how much we love the upholstery fabric. As much as the material that goes to make the furniture, furnishings and upholstery influence the look of your interiors. A richly upholstered sofa set with beautiful cushions can make the room lavish and luxurious.

Silks and brocades are the most popular choice as upholstery fabrics formerly. Even today the rich look you get from genuine silk and brocades is awesome and very impressive. But today you have more choice than ever before with blended fabrics. Textile technology has brought so much change in fabrics that upholstering has been redefined today.

Water repellent, flame retardant and soil-repellent techniques have made furniture maintenance easier and trouble free. Families with children and pets give free rein to their desires to own lovely looking furniture as today upholstered furniture come with guarantees of long life and good looks with low maintenance and care.

Instead of the traditional looking stripes and self motives that used to denote curtains, today you have vibrant looking floral prints, jacquard, embroidery, thread work and other patterns for curtains, upholstery and cushions as well. Today you can plan to have the entire living room looking vibrant with sofa upholstery perfectly matched to the curtains and the cushions, bolsters etc.

Textured and luxurious looking velvets, silks – both spun and reeled and other blended fabrics all can be mixed and matched to give a beautiful and vivid look. Suede, leather, cottons, linen and chenille all have their own allure and if judiciously mixed can give a unique and sophisticated look. Breaking up floral with plain neutral tones and stripes and checks with neutrals will give added accent.

Taking good care of your furniture and upholstery is essential for continued elegance. Immediate cleaning is essential of any spills without delay. Too much sun exposure may take a toll on any fabric. So protect them from direct sunlight and from air and heat outlets as well. Cushions and bolsters need to be fluffed and dusted to avoid lump formation.
