Decor In A Jiffy!

We have all had those moments where we have guests coming in at the shortest notice possible, leaving us with the impossible task of redoing the house in a day. After all, we always want to present the best of ourselves and our house to our guests. But where there is a problem, there is a solution too! We bring you a host of interior decorating ideas which are easy, quick and impactful. Use what you already own to create a home décor scheme which looks straight from the pages of a magazine! Gorgeous decorating is no longer a laborious and time consuming task, use these simple tips and tricks and see your house transform!

Let us begin with your living room – rearrange your furniture and bring them closer together, away from the walls to create a cosy and warm feeling. Place your dining table at the attention grabbing point of the room. Now use this table for a dramatic display of your porcelain. We expect you to work a little extra to glam up the house but not pull off incomprehensible miracles! So, we will go a little easy on the mess in the kitchen and instead of trying to polish everything in there, we advise you to hang a curtain instead. Have a pretty linen curtain running along the length of the room to conceal the mess of the preparation and make it look stylish.

To up the glam quotient of your bedroom and give it a different feel, opt for a mix and match of patterns, instead of trying to match all the time. Besides using these tips, just remember to keep the vibe light, bright and airy and you are all set to impress!

The living room is that place in the house which is the entire family's retreat for whiling away an entire holiday or to catch up between busy schedules. Nothing can beat the comfort of one's own inviting living room, done to perfection for such tranquil moments. We will assume here that the task at hand is to make a rather large living room seem comfortable, as living rooms are mostly the largest rooms in a house.

The first issue that we need to address is to decide which spot the seating area will be placed. This is an important aspect towards making a large living room appear warm and inviting, as the entire room will revolve around the focal point chosen by you. So, choose the best attributes of your living room, like a beautiful quaint fireplace or a large window with a great view. Once the focal point is decided upon, it is time to choose your sitting arrangement. Opt for big sofas and chairs. This will add a sense of being snugly enveloped.

When opting for lighting, pick slightly over-sized lamps to ensure the room gets enough light, so it doesn't appear dimly lit or oppressive. The vases and other decorative items should also be slightly larger than regular; this gives a sense of being enclosed by the space. The last thing to keep in mind to achieve that perfect cosy feel is to make sure to mix and match old quaint furniture with new chic fabrics and wall hangings. Ensure that the sofas are covered in bright fabrics, if possible, in warm and contrasting colour tones like brown, orange, forest green, mustard yellow, etc.

A beautiful garden is the perfect entryway for your own personal heavenly abode, if put together with some care and love. You do not need pots of money to have a pretty garden, some love and dedication will be enough. For starters, the goal should be to create something naturally pretty, which should not look too contrived. With this goal in mind, you can start with setting up a proper entryway for your garden, to give it a proper finished look.

A perfect gate can set the right mood for the garden by lending it a romantic charm. Try and choose a quaint, antique iron gate, if possible, with intricate metal work for that extra edge to your garden. Once the outermost gate is done with, even if your garden space is not very large, try and adopt a connected pathway sequence for your garden. A sequence of connected passageways and discrete corners will add a sense of mystique to an ordinary space, along with giving it an impression of being larger than it is. You can use iron arches and gates covered with vines to create demarcated passageways.

You can use garden ornaments to further enhance the effect your garden can have on your mood. Some decorating ideas for garden ornaments include iron bells hung from trees, antique looking lanterns placed on stone shelves and, for that extra edge, you can also hang a mirror onto one of the walls. Place the mirror in a way that it is right above the lantern so at night it can reflect the lantern's golden glow. This brings us to one of the most important aspects of your garden décor, the perfect lighting.

Every garden has the potential to transform itself into a romantic getaway with a little help from its lighting. Nothing beats natural moon light but we do need a little help from well-placed electric spotlights. You can also use hanging lanterns from trees to make it look more authentic and romantic. We suggest you start putting our tips to practice while we return with more ideas in the next month's issue to jazz up your garden!
