How to Use Antique Rugs

Antique rugs can bring elegance and depth to your home. So before you roll that antique rug out of sight, make it the room’s focus! Here are some tips on how to use antique rugs in your décor so that they become stylish accessories.

A Mediterranean Move.

Antique Rug Strikes the Right Mediterranean Chord

An antique rug might make you think of a traditionally designed room, but it can also be Mediterranean. If you choose such a rug for this type of room, opt for furniture that is striking. The pieces you choose work best when they contain colors that reflect the rug’s color palette. For instance, a deep blue chair can pick up the blue that is in the rug, creating synchronicity.


Clean, Fresh Color Palette Trios for the House

Sometimes you need a blank slate. Sometimes you need a clean palette to feel refreshed, revived and organized. It could be in the kitchen or your home office. It could be the guest bathroom or the patio. Wherever you need that clean, fresh color pay attention to that desire.

When you go for color combinations that are too loud or chaotic, you won’t get the relaxing, breathable vibe everyone wants for their home. For a bit of inspiration, we’ve compiled some palettes to get your wheels turning and get your nooks and crannies feeling rejuvenated!


The Best 10 Colors To Paint The Outside of Your House With

Picking the right exterior color can be crucial. It’s even more important than your front door and foyer combined in terms of first impressions. Whether you’ve decided on a foundation and shutter combine or just one shade that fits the entire home, we’re here to share some classic favorites to help you decide on the perfect tone for your own home. Think heavily on this, it should show the house’s personality as well as your family’s. And it should be traditional enough to look cozy outside, but unique enough to stand out on the street. Take a look!

1. Smooth, Chocolatey Brown.

Dark enough to stay timeless, but less harsh on the eyes than the favorite black, chocolate brown has a soft, welcoming vibe. It looks great on larger houses and looks even better paired with soft greens and creamy whites for a down-home, natural style.

Basic Tips For Weekly Cleaning

Regardless how hard you try to keep the house clean every day, you still need to spend one day at the end of the week cleaning the whole place. If you don’t want to waste an entire day doing that, you need to be productive. You have to know what to do and how to do it and to avoid wasting time with tasks that won’t improve anything. But what exactly are we supposed to focus on? Well, these tips should help.

Organize the cabinets.

Before you start cleaning the rugs and the floors, you should take care of the inside of the cabinets. Make sure the clothes are arranged nicely, that the dishes sit beautifully and that everything is where it’s supposed to be. Do this weekly and you’ll avoid the mess.


Some of the Best Fall Flowers

Jewel tones and muted shades, fall is all about the warm and cozies. But that doesn’t mean the spring and summer trend of fresh flowers need to be left out of your home decor. No matter the season, lively floral arrangements on the side tables, dinner tables and counter tops make for healthier and more vibrant living. Let’s take a quick look at some of the best fall flowers, where to use them and what they mean!

1. Red Mums.

More like cranberry than an actual red, these warm-shaded mums are the perfect way to light the front door and welcome all of your guests, from family dinners to trick-or-treaters. They look great clustered together in big batches decorating the front porch, sides of the house or even as a large centerpiece for your pumpkin-inspired dinner party.

12 Reasons Why You Should Buy A Small House
