Designing a kid’s room with white cabinets, walls, carpeting, and other elements is a surefire way to bring a little light into your child’s life. Its calming tone and clean appearance will bring plenty of peace and joy into your home design.

Bathing a room with white colored furniture, netting, shelving, and throw carpets provides a neutral canvas that can be accented with brightly colored toys, books, and designs. These elements stand out against the white background and ignite the creative sparks bouncing around within your child’s mind. As a neutral foundation color, white rooms are easy to update and change the accents as the years pass by while your child’s interests change and develop.

A final thing to note is that when it comes to your paint and fabric choices – make sure that they are stain resistant and easy to clean. This will give your white decorating scheme a little extra protection against errant crayons, marker marks, and spilled cups of afternoon teas with teddy bears.

Convenient Modern Front Door Storage Units

Posted on October 1st, 2014 by

It can be hard to remember to grab your keys, phone, wallet, and other things you’ll need with you on a day out of your home. To make it easier, most modern front door storage systems give you a place where you can keep all the items in your pocket neat and tidy - right where you need them.

One great storage system is built by Yanko Design. It is a simple wall-mounted rack made of polished aluminum that provides storage for keys, phones, mail, and coats. This makes it a stylish and convenient place for you to put all your items when you walk in the door. They will be right where you need them when you are ready to head out again. Best of all, the rack itself takes up very little space, so it won’t get in the way by cluttering the entryway up.

Bring Western Designs to Your Living Room

Posted on August 13th, 2014 by

Designing a Western style living room isn’t that hard to do and with some careful planning, you can end up with a living room that even John Wayne himself would be comfortable relaxing in.

First, start with the lights. You will want to make sure to include large windows, French doors, and even skylights so that the room is constantly bathed in a warm glow of natural light. Whenever possible, use your windows to showcase the natural scenery outside the home. Finish your lighting off by including a combination of chandeliers and recessed lighting.

Next, make sure to include plenty of natural wood. Whether you decorate with log designs or simply include hardwood floors, natural wood tones are an essential element. Additionally, be sure to include natural stone; rough cut granite and limestone are always popular and can be used to build everything from fireplaces to counters. Together, the wood and stone provide a solid, masculine look and feel that’s the hallmark of western design.
