    A Gorgious Entryway Decor Idea

    Last weekend, I went to visit some of my friends. I was amazed by their home decorating ideas. Without getting help from any professional interior designer, they decorated their own house with their simple sense of beauty. I learned a lot from them. I can not help but sharing a gorgeous entry way decor idea from one of my friend's house as shown in the following photo.

    They just used a wall decor, an animal themed decor accessory, a foyer table, a bonsai tree in a ceramic pot and a decorative tray for the plant pot to get this unique and professional outcome. I found this decor idea very attractive and welcoming. Hope you all will like it too.

    How Bedroom Ideas Vary with Furniture Arrangements

    There are many ways to design a bedroom. Each bedroom looks different in terms of furniture type, furniture design, furniture colour, furniture settings, wall color, bedroom textiles, lighting and decorations. What are the most important facts for you while arranging furniture in a bedroom?

    Check out the following self explanatory designs to see how only the arrangement of furniture can affect a bedroom design. I used a Queen Bed, a double dresser, a night table, a crib and a laundry basket while designing each bedroom with interior design tool. Each design has pros and cons. However, I like the last design (Design 6) most since it shows easy access to every furniture and provides the maximum free space  next to the entrance of the bedroom and thus make the bedroom look bigger.  Which furniture setting do you like best?

    Why Does Room Makeover is Important?

    All of us more or less need a little makeover to go outside, to attend in a party or on special occasions. We love to experiment with the ways we appear in front of families and friends. We do makeovers to feel good and get appreciated by others for our presentation. From this perspective, our home should get some makeover once in a while. Beside doing regular house keeping you can create new colour theme for a room or move around with colour themes between rooms through textiles, decor accessories or changed layout of furniture. A little change in a room can give you a very good feeling. Checkout my recent makeover experiments with a bedroom in the following pictures.
