Are you trying to add a bit of quirky design to one of your rooms? Or perhaps you just want to update the decor and add some very stylish features? Whatever your reason for decorating, have you considered adding an accent wall to the room? These walls are designed differently from the other ones in the room, and this attracts people’s attention as soon as they step through the door. This stylish focal point will really add some much-needed oomph to an outdated or slightly boring interior design!
Think your room could do with a fabulous new accent wall? Here are some great ideas to help you turn your bare wall into a thing of beauty.
If your room is currently painted in cool colors and pastel shades, then it’s a good idea to go for a darker accent wall. This is also one of the simplest options as well, as you can simply leave the wall painted this darker shade. There won’t be any need for adding any more artistic features or decor additions if you don’t want to. It will take you no time at all to paint the accent wall if you use one of the top-rated paint sprayers on the Tool Nerds product review website. Simply add your paint to the sprayer and then use it to quickly and smoothly cover the wall. Job done!
Privacy is one of the most important things these days and people go to many lengths to retain privacy in their homes. Even though there are curtains, awnings, grills and so on used for privacy in homes, privacy walls are one such addition in homes that obviously provided great advantages. These walls add a lot of security and privacy to the home, and there are also some other crucial benefits.
Mentioned Below Are Some of The Top Advantages of Privacy Walls.
#1. Great security and value
Ever noticed how it takes so many lamps around your house to use for different types of lighting? I have my bright LED lamp at my desk to help shine some extra light on my computer while blogging. I have my dimmed softer table lamp for getting ready for bed, and I have a separate reading light too. I find myself often carrying around these different lights around the house, because oftentimes, one single lamp just doesn’t do it! I need different light settings, brighter lights, more relaxing mood lighting, and no single lamp ever seems to do the trick all on it’s own!
This is just one of the reasons the basic table lamp is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Basic lamps also often use basic bulbs that burn out quickly and are not as light or energy efficient either, which is one of the major reasons LED lighting has come on so strong over the last few years. You get great, bright lighting that saves on your energy bill and virtually never burns out either!
Style is often a major factor for many of us (I’m sure if you’re reading this blog, like me, you won’t sacrifice style for comfort – at least not often!) This is exactly why I’ve turned my back on some of the newer LED lighting and lamps that have recently popped up on the market. I need something stylish and sophisticated that says I care a lot about the design and style of my home, and most LED lamps I’ve seen say anything but style!
Well.. that is until now! The new BESTEK LED Desk Lamp is the first LED lamp to prove me wrong, that style does NOT have to be sacrificed for convenience and better lighting! It’s beautiful modern, sleek design is exactly what I look to when adding decor to my home. The lamp looks gorgeous whether it’s displayed at your desk, at your bed side, or your living room end table.
I’ve recently jumped back into the dating game. Ok, not really recently, within the last year. But being that I’m not much of a cook, I have to be pretty comfortable with someone before I will cook for them. In fact at 35 years of age, I have never even cooked for my parents. Yeah, that pretty much describes my anxiety towards cooking for others.
Luckily, being a fashion blogger, my strong suit is definitely more in the design and style of cooking dinner. So while I may not be Rachel Ray, I can Martha Stewart my way around presenting a beautiful meal. In fact, what I’ve learned recently is that it really is in the details. I guess in a way cooking is kind of that way too, adding the right spices, the right taste, and right amount to really give it that little something-something.
To get myself psyched up for a lovely dinner date (and to hopefully overcome the nerves of preparing that Mushroom Risotto Correctly) I started with what I am most comfortable with. I found a pretty set of flowers, purchases some new candles and candlesticks and set up the table. (I’m hoping this little show will distract my date from my slightly overcooked dinner) but he is a man after all, so let’s be real. Flowers probably aren’t going to phase him. But it does put me more at ease!
What I have noticed about what men notice (besides how little meat shows up in my dinner – Hey! I’m vegetarian!) is that they tend to notice the other things goin’ on around. Like my cat sneaking out of the bathroom where his litter box is. Gee Sebby, thanks for that wonderful timing! So I make sure to make a quick trip to Costco before preparing a meal he will never forget (probably not in the way I want him to remember it!) and load up on the must-haves. I get some Febreze Air effects by Proctor & Gamble in the lovely Spring scent, because in my 9 years as being owned by a couple of cats, I know it’s an absolute must have! It works far better than other air sanitizers I’ve ever used too! It doesn’t just mask that nasty odor but completely eliminates it!
I actually have a great set of Karen Neuberger square dishes I love to show off. But If there is one thing I’ve learned from all my years of washing dishes, is that you need a good quality soap to keep the water spots from showing up. I use my trusty Cascade Complete pods which have never failed me. I can skip the pre-rinse too, Cascade is powerful enough to clean even my dirtiest of dishes!
And then last but not least, if it’s going to be a good dinner, red wine will most certainly be involved. And while I’m not too worried about him, I know me, and I’m a bit of a spiller. I save my nice white linen napkins for the meal and go straight to my Bounty Advanced paper towels for cleaning up my red wine that has just spilled all over myself and the table. (Oops. I should probably find better ways to relieve the nerves of cooking!) Bounty paper towels are super strong and durable, even when wet! Perfect for that red wine mess! Like the little details of my dinner date and adding a little touch of style and decor here and there, (as well as being prepared for the messes and more) Proctor and Gamble Products and their love of the small little details is what keeps me coming back to their products time and time again. These products work hard so I don’t have to.
