Life is a Beach!

Who does not want to zip off to the beaches every once in a while for some relaxation? But we are all aware of how these wishes mostly remain just wishes until vacation time. Have you ever thought how great it would be if you lived on a beach? Well, we can't buy you a house there but we can surely give you some tips to turn your home into the perfect beach house, which can make you feel relaxed with its balmy interiors!

Let us begin with the living room... you can start with removing those stark sofas and throwing in some vintage woven armchairs and a wooden table. If possible, get the walls and the ceiling sheathed in whitewashed cedar, to add to the authenticity of a beach house feel. You can use custom rugs made from heavier fabrics in bright shades and prints to add some warmth to your living room. Get rid of those heavy drapes and opt for lacy, flowing and lightweight curtains, which provide a breezy ambience to your interiors.

You can also make some changes to your dining table crockery! Instead of having everything match, like is usually the norm, get an assortment of pieces which go well together without being identical. To intensify the look and feel of a beach-house, you can place shell mirrors around the house flanked by old world rattan chairs. If possible, use an aqua theme throughout your home and for the serious enthusiasts, you can go the entire way with fantasy inspired wallpapers, like palm tree posters in the master bedroom to evoke the natural element in the most important part of your house!

It is now time for you to bask in the glory of your newly decorated house and show it off to friends and family alike - we definitely recommend a beach themed party!

While all of us spend considerable time and energy to decorate our houses, it is more often than not that we tend to neglect the décor of our bathrooms and are content with just keeping it neat and functional. Although this is the general approach, it is not the best idea, as we spend a considerable amount of our time in there, so it should ideally be designed to address all our physical and mental needs. The first step towards doing up your bathroom should be to invest in durable and water-resistant flooring, which are well-sealed and can stand the test of time and wear.

Next up, invest in a sink with graceful lines rather than a block sink, which makes the bathroom look boring and common. You can also add some decorative elements to your bathroom to make it appear more beautiful and colourful, thus lending it the appearance of being an extension of your home, and not seem like a distant cousin of the rest of your house.

One of the best ways to add some charm to your bathroom, without putting in too much effort, is to add some soft flowing drapes and pretty rugs. To make it look more sophisticated, you can also add a vase or a jar, depending on the space available. If you do use a vase, don't let it stand empty. Add some pretty flowers in them to add beauty and fragrance of your bathroom. Last, but not the least, for those who would like to add a dash of colourful flair to their bathrooms without breaking the bank, opt for coloured marble accents for the flooring, while using single coloured tiles on the wall to lend that special personal touch.

If you feel uninspired with the way your house currently looks and feels but do not have the necessary time or the moolah to go for any major changes, you need not worry, as we bring to you some quick and highly effective ways to instantly freshen up your house! The easiest thing to do to make your house seem spacious and airy is to rearrange the furniture. Begin with moving away your furniture from the walls, this creates an illusion of making the room appear bigger and the new positions will also spruce up the room instantly.

It is also important to remove items which do not add any substance to the look of your house, this also allows your statement pieces to be highlighted as they are then brought into focus. If you have a bookshelf stacked with books of all colours and shapes, it is time to use them to stylize your house by arranging the books according to size and colour or both, using one pattern for each shelf. Another easy way to make your house décor look new is to add new throw pillows to your house and move rugs from one area to another, which can incidentally also act as an inspiration to clean the floor underneath, especially if that is something you keep putting off till the last moment!

An easy way to instantly brighten up your room is to add some colour to the room, buy some colourful flowers and place them in different corners of the room by putting them in small vases or glass containers. You can also add some colour to different corners of the room by placing small tables, which have just about enough space to hold big glass bowls filled with colourful fruits, to add a dash of colour to brighten up nooks and crannies! Happy home improvement, everyone!
