You only have to look at their boxed games, dolls, fluffy stuffed toys and picture books to be confronted with an onslaught of bright primary colors. So look to crisp greens, vivid reds, and clear blues as a starting point for the soft furnishings. A jumbled mix of stripes, checks and cheerful gingham always work well together and would look good in either boy's or girl's room.

Before you begin digging out the decor from last year, consider these possibilities.

Reorganized Furniture: Temperatures are dipping and it is a great idea to group your furniture into cozy conversation areas, preferably near the fireplace. You can also place a set of furniture close to windows which get maximum sunlight during the day. Warm Scents: It's a great idea to use slightly darker more opaque hues of upholstery during fall as it will make your home feel cozy and warm. However, you can use potpourri oil or even burn cinnamon sticks on your stove for a long, lingering fragrance in your home.

The first is a recycled jute pad that is as dense as can be for its kind. This is a 40 ounce weight, which is on the higher quality level of jute pads. This weight means there is a dense compression of fiber per square yard and this is important for protection and resistance. This pad can be used under all antique rugs that do not tend to slide around, mainly room size ones.

Ample sunlight always compliments the clean look of modern home interiors so there is no need to be shy of natural light.

Are you designing the treatments around existing decor or completely renovating?

This can be done pairing a floor length sheer and drape or by adding a colorful valance.

A room that is painted in a dark color can seem smaller and even feel oppressive. Adding mirrors to one or more walls can offset the darkness and enhance the color of walls. The best way to improve a room's lighting without using more electricity is to place mirrors opposite windows. The mirrors will reflect natural sunlight streaming through the windows and brighten the whole room. Some homeowners even report a savings in energy costs by simply reflecting the free light from the sun.
