One of the trends in decorating the home is putting upholstery on couches and chairs instead of replacing the entire piece of furniture. This is an option that is very inexpensive, and you can change the look of the furniture whenever you want instead of searching for the perfect larger piece to go in the room.
There are numerous kinds of fabrics to choose from including solids and floral prints. You can also find fabric at 1502 Fabrics that can cover lawn furniture. This is ideal for those who see a lot of storm damage through the year and don’t want to replace patio furniture every season. It is easy to install on the furniture, and like with the fabric indoors, you can change the look each year. When you look for fabrics, you can usually find items that are on clearance or on sale so that you can get several patterns at one time. This gives you options later on instead of going to look for something that might not be in the store. Another benefit to fabrics is that you can stretch it to fit over the furniture so that it looks like it was made that way instead of looking like a cloth that was draped over the item.

You may not have thought about incorporating a lighting style from the 1900s into your modern, contemporary or traditional style home, but it can be done in an incredibly impressive way. Tiffany lighting has long been revered for its exquisite beauty. Just the presence of a Tiffany lamp sitting on or suspended above a table can instantly elevate the elegance of a room. If you have the impression that stained glass lighting and stained glass accessories are out of range for your budget or that there’s no way stained glass can enhance your trendy decor, you should spend some time exploring the possibilities. Your search can begin at a location such as Smashing Stained Glass. Start with the section titled why buy from us and you will immediately discover that stained glass products are indeed an affordable and appropriate decorative item for your home.
While the traditional Tiffany lamps are exquisite and deserve recognition and respect, the more contemporary stained glass lighting styles such as a wine bottle pendant or the stunning handkerchief pendant light can quickly become a statement accessory in today’s trendy decors. Ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps are not the only way you can enjoy stained glass in your home. Contemporary style stained glass fireplace screens can enhance the focal point of your living room during the times your fireplace sits idle. A stained glass window can become an unexpected, eye-catching part of a simplistic, elegant decor.

Halloween is just around the corner. As early as now, my kiddos who are fanatic of Trick or Treating are already thinking of their costumes this year. Like in the past, we just buy off the shelves costumes but this time, my eldest son Francis created his own personality – he wants to be the Dark Emperor. Dark Emperor?? Never heard of such personality – but from the name itself, an emperor wearing dark clothes with dark personalities! lol I think we could use some of their old costumes and combined them to have an emperor look! And perhaps, apply some make up! He bought himself some fangs and toy blood yesterday.
For Chris, he wants to wear the Luke Skywalker costume. I am pretty sure, we cant find this costume in department store so I can guess we also have to make own – hello DIY.
As usual, our girl just wants to be a princess. Once a princess, always a princess!! That means, we just have to used her old costumes. Easy peasy!
Our village has a yearly “Trick or Treat” event and Halloween party afterwards. The kids are normally excited come end of October for this event and are we!
