Bedroom Design Ideas

Between sleeping, reading and, quite simply, relaxing, it’s likely you spend a lot of time in your bedroom. It makes sense, then, that you’ve also spent a significant amount of time turning it into your own personal oasis. CONVENTIONAL A conventional bedroom layout is anchored by a bed with a nightstand on either side. Across from the foot of the bed, a dresser should be situated below a mirror. Resist the temptation to add more furniture. You don’t need it. LOUNGE-LIKE If your room has ample space, however, consider creating a lounge-like atmosphere.For creating a separate space for daytime relaxation in your bedroom, situate two lounge chairs across from the foot of the bed with a side table in between them. TINY BEDROOM In tiny bedrooms, it’s important to make us of the side walls and mirrors to open up the space.One space-saving technique is to put the bed against the wall, with a [ Continue reading ]

Is It A Stack of Books? -NO! It’s A Staircase

It’s truly amazing what some imagination and craftiness can do to a set of stairs! Pippa Branham, a bibliophile from England, painted her staircase to look like the spine of her and her husband’s 13 favorite books. She says that she was inspired by an image she saw on Pinterest. For all of us, Pippa shared some images of how she transformed the  wooden stairs into colorful “books” using brushes, tape, paint and, of course, time (6 weeks). The whole project cost the family less than $200, which was less expensive than carpeting the stairs. Pippa declared that  the most difficult part of the project was painting sets of letters sideways. Pippa is a young mother and to ensure the stairs were safe for kids (and not slippery from the paint), she mixed the paint with a small amount of kid’s play sand to make it grittier. If you are a [ Continue reading ]

A New Concept – UFO Floating House

With the sea level rising as a result of global warming, the low-lying, peolple found an alteternative for the conventional houses on the ground. The floating house is not a new concept, but some architects took it at a new level – The UFO Floating House. While you can always head for the hills to wait out the apocalypse, a more stylish option could be a fully sustainable floating home from Italian mini yacht-maker Jet Capsule. The company has drawn up a concept for a saucer-shaped UFO, or Unidentified Floating Object, which offers a completely off-grid existence floating on the ocean. The  company’s co-founders, Pierpaolo Lazzarini and Luca Solla, the UFO is intended for “living in a floating house and moving slowly around the world.” “Slowly” in this case means a leisurely maximum speed of 3.5 knots (6.5 km/h, 4 mph), using a waterjet-propelled Torqeedo Deep Blue 1800 electric motor.

A boring deck or a cool outdoor kitchen?

Imgur user RogerBennett55 was getting no use out of the patio in his backyard, so a change had to be made. He decided that eating and drinking were a few of his favorite pastimes and so that became the genesis for building an outdoor kitchen of his own. Brilliant. After watching a few online tutorials and doing some research on how to design his own kitchen he began to build his dream. And only several weeks of work later he did just that. In his own words, this is exactly how he pulled it off… Building out the U frame. Bar and footrest attached. Starting the Durock installation  Supports for grill and framing for doors. And more Durock Drop in ice chest cutout and door framed Here’s to hoping the grill fits…fingers crossed. Durock nearly done…just need to cutout spot for the Big Green Egg grill in corner.  Grill fits!! Nearly–a little [ Continue reading ]

Dream House Or Movie House?

  Have you ever watched a movie with no luxurious apartments or houses? Is there anyone in this world who can say “I’ve never seen a beautiful house in a movie’? I think I know the question. HMM… NOO!? I also know for sure that a dream house is actually a movie house (that house with the best design in the world which we see in the movies, with a big pool in the garden, with a design that reminds us of a castel) Here are some architects that can make everything in your house look like those in the movies: –David Collins –David Chipperfield –Duggan Morris –Wells Mackereth My favorite movie houses are those with big windows from which you can see the forest, those with big gardens surrounded by plants. The house from Twilight is one that I can take as a mark. Which is yours?

Gardening Tips: Colour Your Fall Garden

One of the biggest gardening tips I ever learned was to plan a garden that had perennials blooming all season. It’s so easy to have blooms in the spring, the early summer, high summer and even into August. But to get perennials that bloom in the fall is another challenge. Here’s eight plants you can add to your perennial border to have blooms right through to the end of October (or beyond in some areas).   Crysanthemums: It’s the obvious choice….late bloomers that withstand frost, mums are the perfect fall flower. They come in a myriad of colours, heights and size of blooms. But a lot of people don’t have much success with them. Mostly because we buy the wrong mum. Those mums you find at the grocery store in pots really aren’t hardy enough to withstand a cold, snowy winter and will most likely not return come spring. So make [ Continue reading ]

How to choose the perfect chandelier for your house

Designer lighting is back in vogue!? YES, IT REALLY IS! Contemporary and traditional designs of chandeliers are available in the market. I recommend buying a chandelier only for houses or very big apartments, because having a chandelier in your small room can agglomerate the space. A chandelier is one way to change the lighting in the bedroom while also adding some vintage vibes to the decor. While chandeliers are most commonly used in dining rooms or foyers, many people are also choosing to add them in other rooms of the house. Finding the perfect chandelier for a bedroom can be a little bit tricky. Before shopping for a chandelier, the room will need to be measured, and the appropriate size of chandelier will need to be determined. After you’ve measured your room and chose the size of the chandelier you can think about the design of it. There are a [ Continue reading ]
