Christmas curtains

Christmas is a special holiday and it is celebrated in a big part of the world. Actually I consider it the most important holiday through the whole year. And it’s one of the few holidays that we celebrate by decorating our homes, too. When Christmas is near we want to use any kind of decorations that have at least a hint of Christmas symbols. So people, especially mothers and wives go crazy and try to do their best in finding as many decorations as possible and also to make the house very festive and welcoming. But there are some other people who only want to use some small and discreet decorations that can be easily removed after Christmas.

So you don’t have to paint the walls in red and green, but you can use only some simple decorations, the Christmas tree and maybe … some very nice Christmas curtains. There are very nice curtains for your kitchen, for your living room and even for your shower. Why not decorate the bathroom for this special time of the year.

If you want to have nice curtains , but you don’t want so spend a lot of money on it you can try a different approach and tie your old red curtains with a white bow, with a Christmas bow or even with some old white wooden beads.

Denis Chigidin Portfolio

Modern furniture with pieces that are too realistic makes the architecture unique in features. Some of the shadings as well as effects on the images are highly striking in nature. All by Moscow based Denis Chigidin Designer. The Russian designer is known both for designing furniture, but also for its interior design projects. What is most remarkable about him as a professional is the fact that he constantly surprises us with his work and does not get stuck in its own style, unable to get free of it and using only a certain style and characteristic. He is mature enough to design new pieces of furniture that will match the interior they were designed for perfectly, but that do not look like the rest of his works at all. For example he can design vividly coloured and shocking chairs and tables and, a few weeks later, when he is involved in another project, to design the delicate arcades and glass walls combined with small white stripes and wooden pieces of sculpture like that moose head. The room with a lot of light coloured wood ceiling and floor asked for a delicate design, so he created the beautiful and stunning hanging lamp that looks like a bunch of white trumpets glued into a giant sphere. But these are just a few of his projects and you can see more of them if you follow the link.

Solid Wood Sustainability

Green infrastructure and Alternative Energy are amongst a few of earth’s sustainability issues. As of late, many University’s and collaborative non-profits have taken it upon themselves to introduce anti-deforestation efforts, or otherwise classified as green forestry initiatives. For example, the University of Vermont’s School of Environment and Natural Resources is revolutionizing its forestry program through the implementation of a Green Forestry Initiative. But who better to tend to the needs of our earth than the companies using its resources? Harden Furniture is one such example of a company that exercises sustainability through green forestry practices.

Green Forestry can simply be categorized into three different sectors:

- Sustainable Design
- Land Ethics
- Real-World Learning

In Harden’s case, they already understand that sustainability is a major issue; they’ve already outlined annual carbon emission output and land usage. In a statement made on the website: “It is our goal to reduce our total carbon emissions by 10% annually…” – They go on to state that they hit their goals in 2008, but fell short in 09. Although, they were still able to reduce their annual energy consumption in 2009 with the following details:

Electrical Energy Consumption -16.8%

Natural Gas – 10.7%
