Are you designing the treatments around existing decor or completely renovating? Here is a tip to consider when using a light filtering blind as part of a window treatment layer to create a combination of treatments to soften the blinds and add flair. This can be done pairing a floor length sheer and drape or by adding a colorful valance.

In the world of fantasy and fairy tales, an area rug can be a flying magic carpet that you either ride on to take your princess for a ride or save you when you are trapped in a cave. Unfortunately, it doesn't happen in real life. Nonetheless, a stationary area rug has still a lot to offer. Who, in the right mind, wouldn't want to feel comfort under their feet, wearing socks or not? Same as carpets, area rugs gives a nice warm homely comfort that no hard wood floor can replace.

Most quality pillows are two separate pieces, the cover and the actual pillow. A removable cover is quite handy when it comes time to clean the pillow, and can be reused after years of wear have flattened the original interior pillow. Also note that good fill materials should flatten easily but not permanently. You can test this by giving a little punch to the center of the pillow, if the pillow does not budge then it is made of cheap synthetics that will stay flat forever once they do get a little wear. If the pillow takes a moment but eventually gets it's swagger back this is a good indicator that the pillow can be easily fluffed and will spring back to life over years of usage. Fill materials usually range from synthetic polyester to full on goose down and everything in-between. Down pillows are excellent, but if you are purchasing one be sure to inspect the insulation quality of the feathers. Feather tips sticking out of the pillow are a good indicator of expensive materials coupled with shady craftsmanship (not to mention getting poked).

Choose mirrors that are wavy, long and thin, diamond shaped or triangular. Instead of one or two large mirrors, create a mosaic of mirrors by using several smaller mirrors placed together. Look for different glass styles. Instead of a smooth mirror, hang a mirror with beveled edges. Another option is to use frosted mirrors. Hang a mix of framed and unframed mirrors.
