As I was contemplating today’s topic, I had an idea to try something different for a change. I set out to look at some of the products that we carry and place them together as if I was designing a dining room. Mind you, it has been years since I have dabbled in interior design and planning, so I was curious to see if I could. But it is kind of hard to visualize the final outcome unless I draw it out. The first thing that I picked out was the 2 Dufresne Red Velveteen Dining Chairs. I like these because they are unusual and velvet and I thought that they would go well with the Roca Dining Table.

Whether you have a large house with a room for everyone or you have a smaller house because there are not that many of you, you never know when you will have a need for guests. For this reason, it may be a good idea to think about including a convertible sofa bed into your design and space planning.

Wow, it sure is gloomy outside in Los Angeles today. This is the time of year when we tend to slow down and stay indoors and become more sedentary. It is also a time when the weather affects our moods a little, some more than others in a more adverse way. It is time to remedy the situation by adding more light to your décor. Now mind you, you don’t necessarily have to go out and buy expensive lighting and hire a lighting designer to specify mood lighting. I mean you can if you want to and have the means, however you can just go to your local thrift store and purchase additional table lamps. Yes you will be using a little more electricity, well not if you use the cfl’s but you will be proactive in warding off the blue’s.

Depending on where you live in the country it is going to start getting cold and gloomy very soon. It is time to make preparations for the cold, such as bringing in those winter clothes and heavy blankets from the garage or deep inside your closet. If you have a working fireplace then you are blessed. Hey, you know they sell decorative fireplaces now right? That is not too bad of an idea to include, something to think about in addition to turning on the heater.

It’s amazing how much I notice Mid-Century Modern furniture on the sets of TV shows since I started working here. For instance last night I was watching Elementary. I noticed a piece that I could not name, well looking back at my pictures of Mid-Century furniture I believe it was the Saarinen Executive Arm Chair, Lucy Lu was sitting on it while viewing her laptop and the womb chair by originally marketed by Knoll in 1948. The designer of the Womb Chair is Eero Saarinen. Another other show that utilizes the Bertoia Style Chair is Parenthood. Parenthood designers picked out four of these types of chairs.

Then why not add a little of your creative talents and create your own custom designed room screen or room divider? It is pretty easy, anyone can do it. First you need to know how to construct a simple frame. I have two instructional videos that I pulled from youtube.
