Christmas Decor

  Christmas is just round the corner. Are you still stuck on your decoration plans? Let us see whether we can give you some ideas on how to adorn your home.

Rococo Decorating Style

Rococo Decorating Style

  Rococo decorating style is very flamboyant and rich. But no matter all the intricate and ornate features Rococo is also quite elegant. Rococo style peaked during 1700 and 1780 in western Europe and was found in art and music. The name Rococo means “rocaille” in French, which is appropriate as the Rococo’s ornate asymmetry was inspired by natural curves of trees, shells, clouds and flowers. Rococo is also known as Late Baroque but in contrast with the latter Rococo allows other motifs to come in. Thus Oriental motifs were romanticized to fit the Rococo style. Square shapes gave way to sinuous lines and forms. But the love for complexity has lingered in the Rococo style since Baroque. Gold plasterwork is one of the key features of Rococo decorating...

Shawn’s advice – Arranging Furniture

  Arranging furniture is a creative process of decorating. The easiest way of arranging your furniture is finding a focal point. A focal point can be a painting, window or fireplace. It is better if it’s anchored to the wall so that you could move your furniture away from the walls and create an interesting arrangement. When arranging your furniture make sure the pathways were easy and clear. Otherwise the place will feel cluttered and will have obstacles on the way. Place the sofa or a couch in the middle of the room and complete the grouping with a coffee table and armchairs. Try placing the tables within the reach of seating place and make sure they are the same height. Also try different angles as it brings in some style to the arrangement. For...

The plinth both elevates the house to the views, and permits access to concealed services below. A sheltered courtyard provides refuge from the elements when required, with an open fire and access to kitchen and other...
