I Thought Chandeliers are for the Rich and Famous Only

Growing up I really thought having a chandelier in a modest house is inappropriate and superfluous.  I thought it is only for the rich and famous.  I thought it would only look great in mansions and castles. I was wrong, so darn wrong.

Having traveled to quite a few places and stayed at varied but diverse accommodations and hotels made me realized these.

First, all the places my family and I have stayed in during our travels have got chandeliers. Even cheap guesthouses have got chandelier beautifully incorporated in the room or the receiving area, or even the balcony.

Second, chandeliers actually add charm and elegance to the room giving an expensive feel to it.

Third, there are different kinds of chandelier and that these can be carefully chosen to suit the theme of the place and the kind of feel one wants to depict.

Now to add elegance to my modest home, I am thinking of having a drum chandelier placed at the bedroom ceiling. It is simple, made of wrought iron and beige fabric shade. It gives the right amount and shade of light. As my eyes are too sensitive to bright light, this would be perfect.

Drum Chandelier

There are other kinds of grand, pretty chandelier that I remember appreciating while window shopping before. Let me show you some of my favorites.

Crystal Chandelier

This luxury chandelier is made of bright and shiny crystals with six lights that should cater to E14 bulb base. I remember walking around the home section of the shopping mall, I couldn’t help myself but stare at this pure beauty.

Shell Chandelier

This shell chandelier would be perfect in the dining room. This particular one has eight 8 shades made from natural shell materials. The fixtures are made from wrought iron with white paint finish.

 

Kids Room Chandelier

Now that I have kids, this would be perfect.  It is cartoon inspired, colorful chandelier. My kids would surely love this type of chandelier.

Chandeliers are great way to furbish up a house and together with other warm and lovely decors this house would definitely feels like home. A place that one would love to go home to after hours of hard work.

 

What is your favorite chandelier?

5 Amazing Changes to Your Living Room

Living room is the center of homeowners’ universe. It is the place where we spend most time and engage in conversation with our loved ones. Given this special purpose (both functional and emotional) it is the part of our home that matter the most.
Although people spend most of their life in this small room, they tend to neglect it awfully lot. Sometimes, you can see that interior design hasn’t been changed for decades and there is no indication it will be in near future.
Homeowners do not like addressing their living room as they often think that the costs will be too high. This isn’t always true. Sometimes, you can accomplish a lot with just a small investment. Let’s see what the best ways to do it are.

1. Adding a few mirrors
Mirror can do a lot for your space.
Due to its specific form and the fact they reflect things; you can accomplish various effects with them. In fact, mirrors are a cheap alternative to expensive paintings. Instead of decorating your whole walls with lots of paintings you can accomplish almost the same effect with one larger mirror.
Hollywood mirrors are especially neat. Besides the mirror itself, they come with lots of light bulbs that can deepen the experience for the viewer. You can start your mirror search by visiting HollywoodMirrors.co.uk where you will find a decent collection of illuminated mirrors for your home.

2.  Go for intricate wall paintings
Again, instead of getting paintings, you can paint a picture on the wall.
This form of art is really modern and artsy and it can be a good substitution to anything else you would’ve put on wall otherwise. It is something that sticks with a viewer and completely solves your problem.
However, do not do this yourself. It is much better if you get a proficient person to do the job. In the end, you wouldn’t like to repaint your walls again, wouldn’t you?

3.  Switching up things a bit
The oldest trick in the book is switching up your furniture. It might not be the best option and you can accomplish much more by simply purchasing a new set of items but it is by far the cheapest option at your disposal.
You should always try and reposition your stuff so that the room feels more homey. Try creating an oval shape with your sofas and chairs. This way, when your guests arrive, they will all be placed in a circle instead of rectangle. It is a small trick that most people neglect. However, it will have such a mental impact on your guests that they will feel as if you completely changed the whole room.

4.  Remove obstructive things from your windows
Here is a similar trick as the one with furniture.
You are not actually changing anything; instead you are simply removing excess things.
Most living rooms are exposed to the sunlight. There are likely windows or glass doors on one side of the room. Unfortunately, homeowners tend to ruin the atmosphere by adding curtains, putting plants near the windows or obstructing the view in some other way.
Natural light is great for your eyes and your psyche. Even if the light may seem overbearing at times, it definitely helps more than it makes the issue. So, make sure to introduce more of it.

5.  Buy new trinkets, refresh your photos
Everybody has small trinkets, items and photos in their living room. Although they may be important for us or remind us of something, think about changing them once in a while. If a photo is significant for you, you can simply relocate it to bedroom or some other area of your house. However, this swap as small as it may be is really significant for your living room décor.

Ideas For A Small Bathroom

Mom on a budget

Even if you have a big house, you still might be constricted by small space in certain rooms. Usually, bathroom is the major culprit. This problem comes from the fact that we have to fit so many different items within this room. Each one of them takes a considerable amount of surface leaving us with so little space to move around. As you well know, this can pose a major problem given that bathroom is a place where we like to relax and take a nice shower after a long, hard day.

At the same time, this restriction poses a great problem if you wish to experiment and create something beautiful. Different rules apply when it comes to interior design of a small bathroom in comparison to a big one.
However, you shouldn’t be too concerned. There are some easy tricks which can help you arrange your bathroom space making it more functional.

1. Put mirror in a frame

There is a lot of clutter in small bathrooms. Because of this, we are restricted by the items which are within it. Even if you wish to decorate it, you will still have to consider various items and equipment so that you can make a sound composition. Instead of trying to make sense out of this chaos, you can try something completely different. Focus on one item and try to avert attention to it. Mirror is a logical choice. Most of us (consciously or subconsciously) look at the mirror as soon as we step into a bathroom. Use it to your advantage. Put a nice frame around it and make it the centerpiece of the room. By doing so, person will disregard all the other stuff and concentrate on this one item.

2. Organizing your make-up

Although you can keep your make-up someplace else, bathroom is the logical choice for it. However, if you don’t have enough space, it can cause all sorts of headache. Naturally, you will always put it in a cupboard or closed section in order to protect it from potential splashing. Small bathrooms can accommodate only small cupboards. Have in mind that besides make-up, you have to store various other objects inside such as clippers, spare soaps, deodorants, razors etc. Best way to get more space is to buy small plastic boxes for make-up. Now, you might argue that cases do the same job. But, there is a big difference. When make-up is in transparent boxes, you can easily see what you need and get it. This way you can avoid any mess which is caused when searching through cases. Also, it looks much nicer.

3. Rolling your towels

This practice is really common for hotels. Your probably noticed it over the years and wondered why they are doing it. When you are stacking towels one on top of another, you always have to take the one from the top regardless of which one you need. Otherwise, if you take the one from the middle or bottom, you will likely mess up the other ones. As a result, they will all look badly folded. If you wish to have a nice and cozy bathroom, you have to avoid this at all costs. After rolling your towels, you can put them vertically. This means that you can pick just the towel that you need, big ones for body, medium for hair and small for make-up. Simultaneously, by rolling them and putting them in a basket, you can make a nice arrangement. Your towels will look like a bouquet of roses which is enough of a reason to apply this trick.

4. Use boxes to your advantage

The biggest issue with small bathrooms is the way you are using ground space. In other words, your cupboards will usually be positioned under the sink or above it. In most of the cases, they will be floating around. This is a great thing as it gives you more space. Nevertheless, there is still a lot of space which can be used to store various objects. Use different boxes and place them on the ground level. Within them, you can keep spare toilet paper, detergents and other things which you seldom use. By doing this, you are accomplishing two things: you are both protecting them from water and other spills and keeping them out of visitors’ sight.
