How to decorate a Japanese bedroom

If you have ever seen “Memoirs Of A Gheisha”, then you must already know how a Japanese bedroom looks like. It’s a common trend nowadays, among teens and even matures, to decorate their bedrooms in a Japanese style. Though, as they haven’t studied enough, in a lot of cases people are making deliberately or not, a total mess out of their bedrooms.

In order to decorate a Japanese bedroom, some of the Japanese decorating principles must be respected.

First of all, the walls should be painted in a solid color. Therefore no posters or silly pictures are allowed. The family pictures make an exception, though, but there is also a rule for them: maximum 3 pictures in the whole bedroom.

The second principle is related to the furniture. The Japanese are usually concentrating their furniture in the middle of the room. Even if the Europeans as well as the rest of the people are used to place the bedroom near the wall, the Japanese are placing it in the middle of the room. Also, the bed does not have a high platform, and this is why most of the people think that the Japanese are sleeping on a mattress. Nothing more further of the truth that that.

How To Decorate A Room With No Windows

Due to some causes (either the construction plans were in such a manner, or some human errors took place) there are certain rooms which do not have any natural lightning source, and therefore, they have some disadvantage from the beginning.

How to decorate a room with no windows? Well, it’s sure that specific room isn’t meant to be a living room or a bedroom, and therefore, the owners of the house must know exactly which is the purpose of that room.

For example, in a room with no windows, people usually put their library with all the books. Therefore, for a room – with no windows- which is meant to be a library, shelves and books are enough. Though, some carpet is also mandatory in order to fill a little bit the empty space of the room. Chairs and a table can also be placed if there is enough room. Though, if the owners decide to place some seats and a table, a powerful lightning installation must be installed as well.

The rooms with no windows have 2 major advantages: the owners don’t have to look for furniture that wouldn’t blook the windows, and also, due to their nature, rooms with no windows can be used for depositing certain things like souvenirs, diplomas, pictures and much more.

The Corn Cribs Inspired Crib Prefab Facility

The Americans love corn cribs since eternity and the granary design has been a source of inspiration for many American designs to take form, the most recent one being the Crib Prefab by Maryland-based firm Broadhurst Architects. This is a facility which can be  used both as a backyard residence and even as a remote cabin. The word Prefab in the house nomenclature stands for the usage of prefabricated steel beam architecture which ironically helps in shunning the timber frame architecture. The shelter can easily be dismantled and moved and the process has purposely been kept simple, speaking volumes about the architectural firm involved.Also you can take a look at Best Prefab Homes Around The World. So if you want a remote place that is separated from the house and you don’t want to pay for ten years for that, a convenient and fast method is to use the Corn cribs inspired prefab facilities. So you will have your own office or study or simply a meditating room in a small facility made of prefabs looking like the old corn crib, but having a very modern interior, designed to your own taste.

Katrine Martensen-Larsen Makes Country Living Special

We all work and slog together day in and day out and the ideal way to end this working routine will be to retire and spend the better part of your savings on a country house. Living by the countryside is a privilege which is not available to the all of us but you can sure stick to my plan. At least I am inspired by what I see in the magical Katrine Martensen-Larsen redesigned country house which has been photographed by Stuart McIntyre. More than words, it is the pictures you would come to admire just like we did, leaving us all spellbound by the abundant usage of the color white. As you can see from the photos only the exterior of the house suggests that it is a countryside house. The interior design is perfect for any kind of house and offers you all the comfort and technology you need. The rooms have simple, but comfortable furniture and the attic was turned into the kids room. The simple yet effective decorations on the walls are perfect for this house and everything feels so cosy and home-like that you would like to move in right away.
