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.

Are you wild about a particular design in a fabric, wallpaper, or other material? Do you need a little extra something to add to your design to pull all of your elements together? 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.

Get rid of things you don’t need or use. Reduce, reduce, and reduce some more. If you have to keep it because of sentimental value store it in the garage or attic.
Make a collage of pictures that speak to you. You can do this with magazines or online on Pintrest or Houzz.com. Make a list of the elements that you would like in the room like the type of fabrics, materials and paint colors that speak to you. You are not copying anyone. You will use this to find out how you want your end result to look like. It helps with vision.

Are you stuck with a design problem? Do you want to save money on Do It Yourself projects? All you have to do is look no further than your computer. You Tube is full of people sharing what they know. Why would people share their ideas? I think it comes with the gratefulness of solving their own concerns and they just want other people to be able to do for themselves as well.

Don’t forget to consider including shiny materials in your design like glass, acrylic, chrome, and mirror. We have a number of these exciting elements in our furniture throughout our site. In fact, we have just added mirrors and mirrored furniture in our new products category. For the modern look you may like to incorporate clear and translucent furniture. Functional, beautiful, almost invisible, provides as much comfort just as any other piece.

I thought I would post some information that would answer some basic concerns when it comes to seating. For office chairs, bar stools, and counter stools it is convenient to purchase seating that has a height adjustable option to it. There is no doubt that within a household there are varying heights of people living there. Sometimes one size doesn’t fit all.
