Décor of the Orient

Décor of the Orient
While I love European design and décor to the point where I often sit at work salivating over images of European mansions, manors and palaces. I have to respect the beautifully crafted objects of the Orient with their philosophically profound meanings and balanced proportions, ornate craftsmanship and simple elegant boarders and frames. What I like...

Windows Treatments and Creating your Own Private Views

Windows Treatments and Creating your Own Private Views
There are two sides to every window - the interior of your home and the outside view from your window, and both of them should look good. However, if your budget is anything like mine, professional window treatments are way too expensive and unless you fork out even more money, they usually don't look all that special. Also if you're like me you're...

Furnishing the Room

Furnishing the Room
The best way I can explain it is that the room needs to be filled. There needs to be spaces or areas for walk ways, standing areas, chairs, tables, lamps, flower vases or candles on the floor. For grander homes there also needs to be expansive spaces beyond the standing spaces, where the room feels big and you feel small. Thus you feel the grandnes...

Vases and Bowls of all shapes, colours and materials

Vases and Bowls of all shapes, colours and materials
As long as mankind has decorated, he has used vases. There is just this raw primitive and fundamental need for us to decorate with vases and bowls. I personally have 40 different kinds of vases - in different shapes, sizes, colours and materials, made in different places all over the world. At one point of time, I was explicitly collecting them. No...

Ornamental Plaster & Ceiling Wallpaper

Ornamental Plaster & Ceiling Wallpaper
If you're going to have any chandeliers or even pendent lights you must consider having some kind of ornamental plaster ceiling centre to create a proper point for which the light connects to the ceiling. This is especially the case for traditional style homes. In terms of price you are generally looking at less than $100 for the ceiling centre (a....

Indoor Garden Spaces and Indoor Pot Plants

Indoor Garden Spaces and Indoor Pot Plants
Straight up, every house needs indoor plants incorporated in its decor. Also if you were trying to build a nice home in the 1990s or bought one built around that time, chances are you have a little space around the stairs or living room for an indoor garden. Personally I love these. They are a chance to bring the outside inside. However, if you don...

An Assortment of different Tables and Chairs

An Assortment of different Tables and Chairs
A big mistake people make is saying they only want wooden furniture or metal furniture or stone furniture. Alternatively they buy the entire set or a range of one style of furniture, so that all their furniture looks similar. Boring. Really you should mix up your materials, as much as you can, while maintaining a coherent style. You may want to hav...

A List of Must Have Decoration Items for in your home.

A List of Must Have Decoration Items for in your home.
Growing up watching various TV shows and movies, you see a lot of rich houses, and you tend to associate various items with the status of a wealthy home. I think it began with watching Duck Tales, and seeing the giant globe in Scrooge Mc Duck's library/study room, you just tend to think one day I need one of those. Then of course this trend of thin...

The Right Light Fixtures & Ceiling Centres (if applicable) for the room

The Right Light Fixtures & Ceiling Centres (if applicable) for the room
 Lighting can really anchor a room by communicating a style, if you stick with an appropriate style for your home. For my French interior, classic French waterfall chandeliers were necessary for almost every room (except bathrooms and the garage). However when operating on a minimal budget for lighting, it is often better to buy a bunch of low...

Trims and Old (furniture) as Good as Gold.
  If your modern style house doesn't have any trims you can skip right over this section. Unless you want to add some feature trims to make your home more interesting. However for most traditional home styles, the skirting, window trims and cornices present opportunities to beautify your home, a little more than expected. Going with the primar...
