Viewing Area: The eternal question: What to do with the TV? If space allows, try placing your television in a corner so the flow of the room is uninterrupted (but where you can still enjoy Downton Abbey comfortably from the sofa). Bursts of Cheer: Maxi floral prints and super-sized stripes are whimsical touches that give this living room an affable appearance. Warm and Inviting: Nothing says, “curl up and stay awhile” like an extra-deep, sink into me sofa and a plush ottoman to rest your feet. Load on Layers: Stimulate the senses with plenty of textures, including a scratchy jute rug underfoot, a tweedy wallpaper, and a luxurious cashmere throw on the sofa. Polished Pairs: Ah, the power of two: A pair of identical console tables flank the fireplace and two different, but similarly colored, sofas face each other for a pulled together look. Natural Elements: A mix of polished and unfinished wood pieces, and a neutral shade on the wall, can make a room feel chic and not campy. Feeling the Blues: A palette of navy blues makes this room feel instantly inviting and cozy. It’s a durable color for big pieces of furniture, like this plush sectional, since it masks everyday dirt. Small-Space Solution: The trick to turning a small-space into an elegant living area is to use appropriately sized furniture. A sectional sofa might seem too big for a petite area but in fact it’s the perfect size and helps define the space. (Using small furniture in a tight space only exacerbates a compact feeling.)
The end of the hot and sunny days of summer is getting near but that is not a reason not to make the best of what’s left. There are numerous ways you can enjoy the summer and some of those include going on a vacation to a place that has a sea or if you prefer a mountain resort. But you can’t always be somewhere, so you should make sure that you can enjoy the beautiful weather even when you are at home. Do you feel your backyard lacks attitude and style? When was the last time you enjoyed spending some relaxing time out there? Summer is just around the corner and whether you have a big or small family, this is the ideal season to spend time having fun outside. Outdoor activities don’t have to be far from home when you have an inviting area designated for it.
Sea of Space: Make your living room a welcome respite for a gang of friends with ample seating and a circular coffee table that’s easy to navigate. Easy Elegance: Keep a formal living room from getting too fussy by mixing dramatic accents like these floor to ceiling drapes with everyday classics, like a pair of neutral slipper chairs. Ladylike Charm: Soft, muted colors and sinuous curtains infuse a living room with a little feminine grace. Extended Seating: The right furniture layout, with a quirky accessory added here and there, can broaden a living room to accommodate large groups and big parties. Mix It Up: Throw caution to the wind and mix in a bunch of different patterns for a lively look. Pick complimentary colors to guide you when shopping.
The Mini Wine Cellar. Built into the cabinets beneath the counter, the mini wine cellar offers storage for entertaining your guests. Wines are held in this temperature–controlled fridge for easy access to your favorite beverages without over–packing the fridge. Your guests will love the seemingly never–ending supply of bottles kept at just the right temperature. Open Shelving. Not all of your cabinet space has to be hidden behind doors. Make convenient grab–and–go shelving that shows off your dishes, books or pantry items for an eclectic look in your kitchen. Now, your kitchen items become part of the decor! Hang open shelves or simply take off the cabinet doors and outline the boxes with 2×1 boards, painting the boards to match the rest of your cabinets and the interiors of the shelves white for a fresh look. More Hidden Storage. Don’t be afraid to try something different. Bring you cabinets all the way down to the countertops for an elegant look that actually provides more storage space. You now benefit from that extra shelf, something that works really well for long kitchens. You can also extend those cupboards up to the ceiling to get the full length of the cupboard. These cupboards can then be used for storing dishes, cookbooks, baking ingredients, and more in a convenient, but out of sight, location. Of course, if your kitchen needs updating, then consider fresh coats of paint, a new backsplash, tile floors and more for the ultimate workspace. With your kitchen in top–notch condition, you will be ready to shock and awe guests as the “hostess with the mostest.”

Countertop: Usually, home remodelers devote weeks of deliberation to their kitchen countertops only to flippantly choose the material that makes up their bathroom vanities. However, vanity countertops are just as integral to the room’s design – if not more so, considering the smaller space. By hiring a reliable cabinetmaker, you can select from a bevy of countertop materials, including: granite, marble, quartzite, laminate, tile, wood, concrete. Of course, some countertop materials will be easier to maintain than others in the humid bathroom environment. For example, wood counters, unless immaculately sealed, will soak up steam like a sponge and rot. Tile, though amply customizable, may be difficult to clean with the small, rough grout lines. Generally, the safest and easiest choices are granite and marble, which create a sophisticated, stunning look and little hassle.
Get some quality beds and furniture It may be tempting to pick up a few pieces of disposable furniture to tide you over the moving period but it’s much better to get quality furniture that will last. A good bed will help you rest better during the hectic moving period and it will serve you well long after you have settled in. The same applies to the rest of your living spaces; good quality kitchen furniture and items such as couches and sofas can be bought either new or second hand and, with a little care and attention, they will last for years. Proper Curtains and Blinds. This is another area where it is tempting to get temporary replacements until you are settled. The reality is that you’ll need high quality and long lasting blinds or curtains at some point in the future, so just like furniture, it will not hurt to invest in the right curtains or blinds at the beginning. Carpets and Rugs. Carpets and rugs are the essentials that will help you maintain your new apartment and keep it in its best shape to preserve its value. In addition, carpets, tiles, and area rugs help to define and protect different areas while adding color and texture.
Silver Accents: Cool metal touches give this room a sophisticated air. The scrolling mirror, the legs of the coffee table, even the fireplace andirons are all glossed in chic silver. Writing on the Wall: For truly unique (and sometimes quirky) decor. You can search by theme, type, even lyrics to your favorite Men Without Hats song. Does your living room work double duty as a front entry? Keep the two separated and well defined by lining one wall with a welcoming wallpaper, and keeping the living room furniture appropriated to an area rug. Flower Power: Here’s a bloomin’ brilliant idea: Keep oversized patterns in check by limiting them to well defined spaces (here a bouquet of blue flowers covers an occasional seat and an oversized roman shade). It will keep the powerful pattern from taking over the room. Back to Back: Create a dynamic seating arrangement by placing a set of sofas in the center of the room and with their backs to each other. It’s a bold move that creates two conversation corners.

In these photos you’ll believe that your fantasies can be realized, just need to choose your favorite destination.

November is the perfect time to pick the autumn fruits and to prepare your garden for the coming winter. Still it is not too late to prepare the plants, but also the entire outdoor space for the upcoming cold days. Here are some tips that will help you. Remove any rotten fruit from the ground around the trees, because it can attract various pests. Remove the diseased leaves, but be careful not to put in the compost, but to discard them. Clean the leaves and wash the surface. Whether it is a balcony or garden, clean the leaves and wash the entire surface with water to remove the grease from them.

In most people’s vocabularies‚ design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. by Steve Jobs
