Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.

This is because they generate a higher return on value and a more natural and appealing look. Even if you do decide to go with a hard surface flooring you will still want to utilize area rugs throughout your home. The most common areas for using these rugs would include hallways, entry ways, dining rooms and living rooms. Having area rugs in these rooms each has a different purpose. For instance, an entry way rug will help reduce the amount of dirt, water and sand that is tracked through the house, while rugs in hallways will help reduce the risk of wearing down the floors finish in such a high traffic area. A living room typically uses an area rug to help create more comfort, warmth and to reduce sound. Some people will even use rugs in areas where their is wall to wall carpet to protect it. When using an area rug, it is important to use an area rug pad. Knowing where and why you will use the rug will help you choose which pad to use.

It may have some traditional elements appearing here and there like glass panels or raised accents separated by wood strips. Lustrous wood finishes can be highlighted with metals like brass or metallic-tone hardware to give them a shine and standout appeal. While traditional design is charming and elegant in its own way, contemporary design is a pleasure for the eyes. Contemporary design would feature sleek cabinets, plain panel doors. Home accent hardware to go with this design should be inconspicuous and subtle. Unobtrusive hardware would bring out/highlight the contemporary design.

Great options are removable wall decals; they come in every size, color and theme. They will give you a great look, using the child's interest with a small price tag. You can blend them with a wall color (their choice) even if just on an accent wall. Another favorite of mine are carpet tiles; they add great color and texture. Using accessories that follow the theme of the room make it is easy to change in the next few years as you child and their interest grow.

This is both practical and beautiful-adding a new color to an often-used living space creates an instant update.
