Let's face it men, when it comes to keeping up with contemporary design we are fallin far behind, and fast,
Especially compared to our lovely female counterparts.
And I don't just mean furniture

We've all heard the cliche "Bigger is Better"
Well who ever coined that phrase obviously wasn't speaking about furniture. Sure, we all like to have our personal space when lazily lounging on the sofa, but does mass really dictate quality?

I think of my room as my little studio. I have my bed, my living room, and my office within one place. It is quite cozy. Creating and reinventing your bedroom or any room for that matter can be a good thing. I find that it helps bring in the new and aids in keeping you motivated by enabling you to see possibilities. Sometimes life can feel stagnate, and you just need a change, even a little change will do. It is really a matter of perspective.

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.

Ok so you want a more authentic looking mid-century modern design. So what to do besides select from our many furniture pieces at http://www.ezmodfurniture.com/furniture/modern-classic.html. How do you really know which colors are the most authentic of the period? What if you want to select poster art of the time period. The answer is simple. All you have to do is google it. Yes google is good for a lot of information. Just go to an image search and google mid-century modern art to get an idea of the art work of the time. If you want less expensive poster art just include mid-centruy modern art posters.

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.
