I hear many people tell me that their pad stuck to their floor and it cost them a lot of money to re-finish the floor. The type of pad that does this is an open weave waffle looking pad. It may look and feel like rubber but it actually is a plastic or nylon pad that has a chemical spray applied to it. This chemical is what transfers to the floor and leaves an imprint of the rug pad right on the floor. Real rubber does not harm the floor and a felt and natural rubber carpet pad will prevent slipping and protect the floor.

But then, why not play around with textures and combinations. For instance, put together a collage of different sections and you might even add pictures of yourself and your spouse for a personal touch. Or you could place two matching mirrors on either side of the bed above the side table lamps for softer light diffusion that is so very romantic.

Hang a fall-themed wreath on your front door. Use corn stalks, straw, pumpkins and other hearty fall vegetables as decorating accessories. Birch branches, long twigs and corn stalks can fill a large vase for a spectacular autumn arrangement. Tie a wide orange, yellow or red ribbon around the vase to finish off the look.

When adding throw pillows into the mix it is always safest to go with a somewhat limited color palette and big geometric patterns. Textures such as cotton and linen are the best fabrics though silk throw pillows do have a place in certain modern settings. If you really like a lot of color then the best bet is to snatch the color palette from an existing piece of art or "busy" decorative item.

We cannot forget the flowers that bloom in the fall. These perennials are Aster, Red Spider Lily, Fall Crocus and Toad Lily and will be back year after year for our pleasure and enjoyment. Not to mention their decorative properties.

Windows have always had that ability to become a focal point of many home interiors whether directly or indirectly, because of their function to radiate light and create warmth and transparency. It's important not to limit these portals of imagination to something that must be "covered"- curtains and window treatments should allow the window to interact with the room besides simply performing a function.

They come in various sizes, shapes and designs. A mirror creates an illusion of a larger room. It should reflect an interesting home décor, for example a vase or the garden outside. You simply need a little creativity and experimenting on where to hang it.
Published at Saturday, November 03rd 2018, 06:34:48 AM. Wall Decor By Marine Jacquier. One of the best and easiest way is to add texture to the wall. There are so many wallpapers that have texture, and it is a simple task to paper the wall or walls with a wallpaper that has a raised design, or is made to look like bamboo or linen. Of course, this can be brought to an extreme, and there have been avant garde decorators who adhered straw or paper bags to a wall to achieve texture, but this is not a solution that is for everyone.
