Here at EZmod Furniture we want to salute those great Interior Designers that really give their decorated rooms the treatment you deserve. It not only takes a great sense of style but a lot of enthusiasm for the finished product. Interior Designers are paid to take the headache of it all away. Who has the time and energy to decorate and do it flawlessly? Many people can play it safe with designing with whites and neutrals in the walls and fabrics. It takes the extra nerve and fortitude to break out of the safety of the unknown. The real talent shows when color, texture, furniture, lighting, accessories and materials are utilized to create a cohesive look.

This weekend I had a little extra time. I intended to go to the library and pick up some books and it was closed so I went to Barnes and Noble instead. I found this book that was very colorful and interesting. The book is called Decorate Workshop by Holly Becker. I particularly was drawn to this book because it was special and unlike any other design book that I have seen. Holly Becker actually speaks from her heart and writes as if she is speaking to a friend.

This last weekend I was visiting my niece in Orange County, California. I had an extra 45 minutes to kill so my party and I stopped in at the Goodwill. I was amazed at all the nice things they had.

Education is really an introduction into the realm of Interior Design. There also needs to be years of successful design experience before you are considered to be a professional. California offers a state exam for the added assurance for customers that they are getting an experienced and licensed designer.

With so many seating choices in a room it is hard to know the differences between them. These days accent chairs serve as sort of an accessory in the room. They are not the main seating in the room. Accent chairs are mainly utilized for decorative purposes and to bring out and compliment other furniture pieces. As the name of the chair implies, it is a chair to accent a room, yet provide occasional seating.
