Themed Rooms: Movie Night

Fun family nights filled with popcorn and movies, everyone needs a cozy, homey spot to kick back, relax and catch up with the tube. Blankets and comfortable seating are a must for creating the most perfect “movie night” room, but there are some other great ways to transform a bonus room, living room or extra bedroom into the most magical, most fun room of the house! Take a look!

1. Add some curtains to the screen.

Give your movie space that extra, magical flair by adding curtains to the TV screen. Golds and burgundies are the classic color choices. Then add some pull-back tassels, fringe and make sure the fabric is of a plush, velvety genre. When it’s time for the big premiere, slide them back to reveal your big flat screen!

A Guide to Mixing Patterns in Your Home

Pattern mixing has become a popular trend in fashion, and it’s a trend that has carried over into home design as well. Mixing patterns in your home can help to give it a more “lived in” feel rather than looking impersonal and straight out of a catalog or window display. But there are some things to consider when mixing patterns and colors so that your rooms don’t end up looking like you just threw a bunch of things together.

Chose a color scheme.

The first rule about mixing patterns is that there has to be something that brings them all together. Having a specific color scheme can really help your pattern mixing look intentional. If you’re nervous about mixing patterns in your home, going with something simple like black and white can help you ease into it. Then just add pops of another color or two here and there with smaller items.

How To Incorporate Plates Into Your Interior Designs

From as far back as the 14th century, when Marco Polo first introduced Chinese products to Europe, plates have been sought after and prized items. Indeed, it was not until a couple of hundred years had passed that Europeans started to manufacture their own ceramics. Known with the cover-all term of china, plates, saucers and bowls all became less expensive but the plate, in particular, still retained a high degree of prestige.

Even modernists, such as Picasso, worked extensively with ceramics. So, what are the best ways of incorporating plates, and other forms of ceramics, into the world of home decoration?

Just like this exciting and wild wallpaper meant just for this small, quaint bathroom. Reds and whites are fun and lively when put into small, busy prints so don’t be afraid to go with something this wild. Even if it’s just a small place or an accent wall in the hallway, it’s a great way to show off some personality!
