Upcoming Spring Colors - Trends to introduce to your home



Every year in the Spring, the color palette changes. Trends come and go based around these colors, and we tend to shift our home decor, furniture, and overall design themes as a result. It’s incredible, the amount of influence something as simple as a color palette can have, but it also makes a huge statement as to what we find appealing at any given time.

This year, of course, is no different. Pantone has been the standard for upcoming color trends for years. They release a ‘color of the year’ that defines trends for 365 days at a time. But, they also release color palette predictions based on seasons.



For the upcoming Spring season, it's all about getting back to the natural beauty that surrounds us in different ways. Spring is a time for vibrancy, and appreciating nature. Pantone's upcoming Spring colors absolutely reflect those moods. They're taking a page from Mother Nature's book with colors like Pale Dogwood, Greenery, and Niagara. More subdued and familiar tones like Kale, Hazelnut, and Lapis Blue also make the cut, blending the natural coloring surrounding us with comfortable items we're familiar with.



What better time to appreciate the beauty of the natural world than in a blooming, flourishing Spring? Niagara will lead the color palette as the 'it' color for the season. It's denim-like blue reflects an idea of relaxation, comfort, and familiarity. All of the great colors that make the 'top ten' list  for the season are designed to do exactly the same. So, as you take a look around you this Spring, and try to decide which color palette to focus on for your home. Take a page from Pantone's book, to select on trend poufspicture framesrugsthrows and other decorative pieces that reflect these color palettes. Not only will you be on trend, but nature's color palette will find its way into your home!

Bookcase Organizing



Here is a fact; everybody has books in their home! Whether you are a passionate reader, a book collector or a person who rarely reads; what do you do with these books? Where do you put them? Surely, we’ve all asked ourselves these questions at some point and came up with this conclusion. A Bookcase is the most appropriate furniture to organize them. It can actually bring a new look to your home!

Are there any rules for bookcases? No need to organize your books on shelves as if you are in a library unless you are a neat freak. Bookcase shelves can be unstructured masterpieces of furniture where you can also arrange home accents.

Here are some suggestions to make your bookcase multifunctional and stylish at the same time: 

Be creative in your books arrangement!
Place some books horizontally and vertically on the shelves. Magazines and articles can also find some room on the shelves. You can also brighten your shelves by playing with the color of the books while placing them!




Don’t fall into the classic bookcase use…feel free to add home accents too! Now you can definitely display all of your little collectibles on the shelves. These items will give more perspective and depth to your bookcase; it will surely catch all your guests ‘eyes!




Open bookcase shelves can give a fresh and contemporary look to your room! Dare to innovate in choosing your bookcase.



In kids’ room, a bookshelf is a must-have for storage. Kids can arrange books and all their others unexpected items such as dolls, mega blocks or cars in baskets. It is also a great way for parents to teach them at a young age how to be organized, in hopes that they will apply it later on. As a short term solution, their room will stay tidy!

Make Your Bedroom Your Sanctuary


As a whole, most of us tend to focus our decorative ideas on things like living rooms, dens, basements, dining rooms, etc. While these are all important, and should reflect your personality and style, it’s easy to ignore the bedroom. We don’t often consider our bedrooms to be much more than a place to sleep, lounge, etc. But those two actions alone should make you want to turn your bedroom into the ultimate escape of relaxation and comfort. Thankfully, something as simple as your bedroom furniture can do just that. 



Start out by listing off a few things that first come to your mind when you think about a personal sanctuary. This will be different for everyone - after all, your bedroom should be a reflection of you, not someone else. Start with the wall color, the decor, and then move onto bigger items like the beddressers, side tables, etc. 



The focal point of every bedroom is, of course, the bed. It’s okay to make your bed an investment, and make it absolutely abundant. If it’s going to be the main focus of the room, it should be something luxurious. 


Your furniture is truly the foundation of your bedroom. Once you have the details in place for the overall theme, and you have the bed you want, your furniture should accent it. Again, bedroom furniture should be an investment. With so many options, grains, woods, and colors to choose from, it’s an investment that can be incredibly personal. The bottom line? Don’t be afraid to ‘go big’ when it comes to your bedroom. You may spend most of your time just lounging around there, but making it feel like a special occasion each time you get into bed can make a world of difference, and add a lot of value to that room of your home.

Furniture For The Holiday Season



The Best Dining Room Furniture Set for Your Holiday Gathering

We don’t often think about the furniture in our dining room until it’s absolutely necessary to do so. The furniture is typically comfortable enough for us to enjoy a quick breakfast, or a dinner with the family. But, when it comes to hosting guests, it’s easy to second guess yourself, and your furniture. Thankfully, there are a few tips you can keep in mind. Whether you’re in the market for a new dining set, or you want to spruce up your own, take into account both timeless classics, and recent trends. 

Traditions Never Fade

The holidays are all about family, warmth, and comfort. One way to provide that with dining room furniture is by focusing on something more traditional, vintage, rustic, etc. If you have an old dining set already, you might actually benefit from ‘roughing it up’ a bit more. The distressed look is not only in style right now, but it never goes out of style. Capitalize on a comforting dining set you already have by giving it a more rustic look. There are plenty of online tutorials and step-by-step guides that can help you give your furniture a welcoming farmhouse appeal. 


Modern Comfort

People also tend to think about class and sophistication at the holidays. If you’re in the market for new dining room furniture, don’t be afraid to make a bold statement. Rich, warm colors will never go out of style. Oversized tables and chairs will make every meal feel like a special occasion. Clean, smooth lines will make the dining set comfortable enough to use all year long, even for a simple, casual meal. 

Whatever you decide, know that dining room furniture should reflect your space and personality all the time. How you decorate and accent it for the holidays is also completely a personal choice. So, choose your modern flare, or timeless traditional look, and your friends and family will love it.

What To Do On Thanksgiving


Are you tired of gorging on Thanksgiving and feeling like you’re about to burst? Then why not organize activities to get you and your guests to stop focusing on the stuffed bird that you just ingested! Here are some ideas to keep you busy while you burn off the massive feast you just had:

  •      Play Touch Football

If the majority of your family/guests are sports fans, then suggesting a touch football game might be a hit! Besides, seeing as they are sports fans, it might be a good way to pry their eyes away from the television.


  •     Play Board Games

Who said a little healthy competition never helped families bond on Thanksgiving? Pick a board game that everyone agrees upon and play multiple rounds to crown this year’s Thanksgiving board-game champion. Remember to be a good sport!


  • Watch the Parade

Since 1948, families have enjoyed watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Watching floats, giant balloons and marching bands roam down the streets of New York is a magical and fun way to spend the holiday with children. 


  • Give Thanks

This is what the holiday is really about: giving thanks. Have your guests give thanks and take the time to write down something they are thankful for. Showing gratitude will help the children learn about the true meaning of Thanksgiving.


  • Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen

Perhaps one of the most admirable ways to spend part of Thanksgiving is to serve food to the less fortunate. Whether it is at a soup kitchen, in a church or at a community center, this is surely a rewarding way to spend the holiday. If you cannot be present to serve the meal, you can pitch in by collecting and sorting donated food.

The purpose of this holiday is to express gratitude. It should inspire you to spend some quality time with your friends and family. Have fun while creating fond memories! Gratitude also helps you to connect with other people. Another way to harness your appreciation is to bless others.  If you are not spending Thanksgiving with friend and family this year, why not help out those in need. Happy Thanksgiving!

All You Should Know About Memory Foam Mattress


Does your body ache every morning? Are you restless and sleepless? A memory foam mattress can help remedy these problems and make the day feel better. Lucky for you, the memory foam invented by NASA 50 years ago to protect astronauts is now used in mattresses. When you lie on a memory foam mattress, its soft foam adjusts to every part of your body from head to foot. The temperature-sensitive material distributes body weight evenly and reduces pain. If you suffer with back, neck, hip and joint pain, mattress brands like Ashley-Sleep®, Tempur-Pedic® and other premium brands are perfect for you. They adapt to your body so you can rest easy in personalized comfort. Add an adjustable base and with the touch of a button, you’ll discover that perfect ergonomic position. In addition to pain relief, there are five more great health benefits of memory foam mattresses.



HELPS EASE SLEEP APNEA
When a memory foam mattress and pillow are used together, your head will be properly elevated. This helps clear the path to easier breathing because your airways are no longer obstructed.


HELPS ALLERGY SUFFERERS
There’s nothing to sneeze at with memory foam. Since these mattresses are made of polyurethane foam, the interior of your mattress will always be free of allergy-causing dust mites. By eliminating one of the major allergens, these mattresses can also help control asthma. 



IMPROVES METABOLISM
If your partner constantly tosses and turns, you’ll never know it with a memory foam mattress. The foam isolates all motion and you’ll enjoy uninterrupted sleep. This will positively impact your metabolism, which may in turn help you lose weight, deal with daily stress and improve your overall health.


PROVIDES PROPER SPINAL ALIGNMENT
Contouring support provided by a memory foam mattress keeps the back aligned and delivers pressure-relieving comfort while you sleep. This helps with preventing back pain and future spinal problems. As time goes on, these mattresses are less likely to sag and lose shape, so your back will not suffer.
