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.

Rain Water

Monday, December 28th, 2009

rainbarrels1-300x224Have you ever felt the need to save up on some resources like water? Everywhere, we hear of saving the environment and keeping our place clean or keeping it green. It may be time to do our share even in small ways. One way of saving water is with the use of rain barrels to collect rain water during rainy seasons. The water can then be used to clean other stuff or to water your plants during sunny days. Rain harvesting is what some do to collect rain water for future use. A rain water barrel can be positioned underneath the spout of the roof gutter so that when it rains, the water flows from the roof gutter and collected in the barrel.

There are lots of rain barrels for sale that may be perfect for your home. Different designs for different uses are available. You may just need a simple looking barrel with a faucet or a big collecting tank if you need a lot of water for your livestock or irrigation needs. It’s just one way to help in conserving our natural resources. It may be a small move but it may also be a big help.
