When it comes to decorative pillows, the levels of craftsmanship nearly outweighs the vast designs and patterns available. If you are ready to upgrade your interior and want to add some quality to your decor there are a few things you need to know to help you select the best pillows for your money. The most vital aspect in determining pillow quality is the exterior construction; this should give you great immediate insight into the overall quality of the pillow. You'd be surprised at the shady work you can detect simply by examining the seams. Are the stitches evenly spaced from the edges? Does the pattern uniformly align at the seams, is it aligned in the middle? An easy way to tell a mistake from a unique design element is to compare two or three of the same pillow while you shop to see if they are all the same, as they should be. Also spend time examining the shape, if it is supposed to be a square throw make sure that it is. Many massed producing, quantity-over-quality dealers churn out cheap uneven pillows that are just square-ish.

Situate the mirror so it doesn't cause glare. Mirrors can be problematic if they're placed across from a window with a western or southern exposure. Multiply the wide of the space. Mirror a long wall in a skinny space to double the visual width of the room. This is a great trick for halls, entryways, narrow dining rooms, gym rooms and master bathrooms.

Wall decor in your home is almost as important as the furnishings-whilst some homes might look great with absolutely no wall mirrors or wall art, most will look rather dull. A well chosen painting or mirror can greatly enhance any room, but it is vital that the piece is hung correctly. Pictures and wall mirrors should be hung at eye level. This depends on whether the majority of people will be standing or seated in the room at any given time. For example, in a dining room, a piece of wall art or a wall mirror could be hung lower.

The view out of your windows changes with the season, so couldn't your window treatments change, too? If you have curtain panels consider changing them to a more seasonal color, whether retail or custom. You may also want to consider thermal panels that can help keep the cold out as the temperature drops. If you have blinds or roman shades you can do the same thing-update them with warmer, fall colors, or in either case, update an existing valance on your windows.
