Update your Home Accents and Design

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

Modern contemporary home design, like comfort and beauty, does not always come in expected and recognizable forms. Scale, rhythm, and proportions are often realized in startling forms. The look of modern contemporary style has smooth and unbroken linear appeal. To foster this, fabrics are usually solid shades or quiet tone-on-tones that are softly textured. To delineate areas for dining, entry or sleeping, rugs are placed to also add a grand touch of art on the floor.

The texture of accents is important to prevent monotony in the modern contemporary home style and so are occasional accent colors in the living room to make an interesting focal point. The textures are supple and sumptuous. If you have a good eye, you can update your home accents and design and add a classy carpeting that takes on radiance from shining mirrors in your modern contemporary conversation area.

Painted Plates

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

We are used to having plates that are plain white or have some designs on the side. The plates for toddlers or babies even have pictures on it. It may be to make them eat more or have fun while eating. Some have plates with their own photo as decoration and is placed in the living room. A hand painted plate can be fun to use. The plate could also be used as a guest book where wedding guests sign with a special pen. The signed plate can be used as decoration or could also be used for eating. The signatures would of course be permanent on the plate and would be food-safe.

The kitchen is a part of the house that is often used, aside from where the TV or entertainment center is located. Sometimes it also takes a lot of beating because of cooking. Food is cut and prepared here and the dishes are also placed and washed here. After a time the countertop will look a bit old and worn out. With the use of new materials, there are countertops that are more durable and have a longer life.

More and more use granite countertops for their kitchen. Granite is very hard and quite durable. It’s scratch resistance quality is also perfect for use in the kitchen.

Ceiling Fans

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

The house may seem cluttered at times and to lessen the clutter, some appliances are mounted on the walls or ceiling. The new TV can be wall mounted so there will be more floor space. The lamps can either be on a side table or can also be mounted on the wall. There are also some cabinets that are mounted near the ceiling above the counter where utensils can be kept. It also is a way to save some space in the house. Fans like the Minka Aire fans are mounted on the ceiling to lessen the need of stand fans or desk fans. There are also ceiling fans that have their own lamps so it will also light up the room aside from cooling it down. There are different designs of fans that would make the room brighter and make it a bit classy.

Practical Paint-Based Faux Finishes

Monday, November 30th, 2009

If you have the luxury of time and a huge budget, it’s better to have genuine surface materials. However, if you’re a little low on cash or can’t wait for a time-tempered natural finish to occur (antiquing, for example), take heart, a little cheating won’t hurt. Faux finishes are almost as good as the real thing!

Don’t know where to start? Check out these paint-based faux finishes below.

Antiquing and Verdigris

Antiquing and Verdigris1
This mimics the patina that metals acquire over time. The natural greenish-bluish tones of verdigris can be duplicated when a piece of metal or plastic is exposed to heat and combined with acids. The trick is to apply the layers in uneven arbitrary patches for a more natural look.


faux marbling

This age-old classic finish emulates various natural marble veins, including carrara marbling which involves dipping a thin brush in black gaze and sweeping a softening brush in light, random strokes to create the characteristic marble pattern. Serpentine marbling, on the other hand, is achieved by rubbing oil paint on a surface using a tissue paper.

Faux Bois (Fake Wood)

Faux Bois
The subtle grains and lines of wood furniture or surface can be easily recreated. If done well, you can even replicate the book matching veins and knots of expensive wood veneers.

Paint Spattering

This easy and popular finish employs tiny paint dots in a variety of colors for a rich yet effortless-looking surface accent on walls. The “spattering” effect is achieved by thumping a loaded paintbrush (or old toothbrush against a screen for small surfaces) against a stick to spatter it in different directions.
