Easy Home Updates For The Fall Season – As the days get shorter and cooler we tend to want to “cozy up” our rooms so they feel warmer to us. The “light and breezy” style we enjoyed for the warm summer months served its purpose and now it’s time to transition to a “warm and cozy” style for fall and winter. In this article you can read some useful ideas for an easy home updates for the fall season…
Industrial Home Style – Industrial home style is sleek, modern and minimalist. Whilst the industrial look is best suited to converted industrial buildings such as warehouses and loft style apartments, this look can be adapted to other interiors.
Key colors for industrial home style are black, grey and white and could be used for upholstery fabric on sofas and chairs. A good idea would be to use a grey tartan fabric on a feature armchair or if you want to add a splash of color use a black and grey fabric with a vivid pink stripe.
Building A Pergola In Your Garden – You can add a pergola to an existing deck or patio, or plan it as part of a new outdoor living area. It is important to provide adequate footings for the posts but the framing need not be as strong as for a deck, as pergola roofing materials are usually light in weight. Of course, the framing must be sturdy enough to withstand strong winds and resist collapsing under the weight of climbing plants and, occasionally, snow.
The Effect Of Light On Colors In Interior Design – Interior designers and color consultants consider the direction a room faces. Whether it is north, south, east, or west, makes a great deal of difference to the choice of color scheme. For instance, a bedroom that faces east and receives strong sunlight in the early morning will look very different when next seen late at night in artificial lighting. A west-facing room that has a warm glow in the evening can look dull in the mornings. Your choice do colors should take this into account.
Metal Kitchen Accessories – Whether it is spring cleaning time, guests are arriving or just time to redecorate, when getting the kitchen in order, people can use some help. Help comes in the form of metal kitchen accessories. Ditch the plastic. They tend to soak up stains and odor and have people cleaning for days.
Metal kitchen accessories such as metal canisters, metal paper towel holders and metal plate racks do more than ease the cleaning process. The metal kitchen accessories can add beauty and style to the kitchen.
