Uncomplicated Contemporary Interior Decoration Design Ideas to Attract

Remodeling is hard work. Sometimes we just don’t have the time or energy to start remodeling their rooms. Sometimes, buying objects such as differently-colored couches and chandeliers can be taxing on the wallet. Luckily, there are some interior decoration design ideas that don’t require much. Some of these ideas come from interior design blogs run by people who know how to save on energy and money. If you think your living room needs a major overhaul but you don’t want to expend too much time or energy on it, these are some things you can try.


One way you can give your couches and tables a new touch is to give it new, handmade covers. These can either be hand-knit or hand-crocheted. Handmade couch covers can take some time to finish, but you can multitask by crocheting while watching TV or reading a book. If you’re not one to be able to make couch covers yourself, you can just buy lace covers and use them. That way, you won’t have to spend too much on a lace-patterned couch. You can even make your own pillows to give your room a personal touch.

Another way you can give your room an extra touch is to hang unconventional items on the walls. Collectible ceramic plates, pot racks, and picture frames of different sizes, arranged in an aesthetically pleasing fashion can give your room a new atmosphere. Just remember to follow the color scheme of the room so that you don’t end up with clashing themes.


Mirrors can also be great for rooms. They give the illusion of the room looking bigger, as well as reflect light and make everything look brighter. Full-length mirrors, the kinds that revolve vertically on stands work best, but you can install mirrors on the walls if you want. If you practice feng shui, you might want to ask your local feng shui expert for advice when installing mirrors, as they can do odd things to the energies inside a home.

Lastly, experiment with the items you stack in tables and shelves. Books catch the eye and give off the feeling of a home. Also buying candles of the same color in different sizes, and arrange them as a table centerpiece. You can even buy tea lights and arrange them on a tea light stand. If you’re a fan of the traditional, try flowers. Lily-of-the-valley, bonsai, or small succulents and houseplants make good table centerpieces.

If you find other simple ways of redecorating your home,you can mix and match them to create an effect you like. Don’t be afraid to try new things. If you don’t like how something looks, you don’t need to stick to it.

Glamorous Modern Living Rooms Designs with Urban Transitional

The internet carries a lot of internal decoration ideas for your home. Depending on what you’re going to be using your living room for, some interior decoration ideas might be better for you than others. You might want to make your living room a safe place for your toddlers to play, or a lounge where you and some friends can drink coffee and chat. Here are some modern designs for living rooms that you can try out the next time you remodel.


If you don’t turn your nose up at the cute and plush, try using a pastel palette for your living room. Add in some fluffy pillows, soft carpets, and tablecloths for a comfortable look. You may also want to add lace, or leave them out if you don’t want to overdo the cutesy aspect. Your color scheme might be something like soft blue, pastel pink, light mint green, and other pastel colors. If you’re really good at wall painting, you can even try an ombre technique for your walls. Keep your furniture as close together as possible without being cramped, and don’t forget to balance them out around the room.

Your living room may have lots of windows. If it does, you can forego an unnecessarily fancy chandelier and go straight to the functional. Leave lots of space between your furniture, and go for smooth, polished wooden surfaces, or light-colored furniture and upholstery. White curtains that float in the breeze are also a good idea. Try adding in a bookshelf for functionality and the sense of being able to spend time in that room.


If this setup feels too simple for you, try some furniture with ornate, gracefully curving stands. Pair this up with prints like fleurs-de-lis, hand-drawn florals, or similar patterns. You can even use a chandelier. This setup is great for when your living room doesn’t have much in the way of windows.

To kick your painting game even further, try painting a mural on your wall. Landscapes work best. Once that’s done and dried, let your couch mimic the color scheme of the mural. For example, if you’ve painted a field of flowers with green grass, yellow dandelions and a blue sky, you can have a blue couch, decked out with green and pink pillows. And if you want to push the lush, flowery theme even further, try adding a vase of real or faux flowers to the coffee table.

These are only a fraction of the things you can do to your living room. There are lots of resources online you can use to create a living room that fits you and your needs, so do your research before you start remodeling or painting anything.

Workplace Fashion That Will Fire out Office Design in Your Taste

In many families today, the home office plays wide range of very important roles. For those who work from home, it serves as their place of business, for others, it is a place to go through mails and reply them, store important documents and pay some bills. For kids however, it serves as a homework spot and also sometimes as a play room of sort. It can also stand in effectively as a library or just a quiet place for brainstorming or doing other things that requires utmost concentration.

In designing a home office, the kind of work to be done should be considered; we can’t probably expect the workspace of a journalist or writer to be same as that of a programmer or engineer. There certainly has to be some distinct features for each. In recent times, offices have ceased from being the conventional front facing table-chair office to the cubicle esque style to various amazing styles today. It has been proved that an office that is carefully designed with colour combinations rather than the traditional white colour, high quality table and chair with exquisite designs, with large posters relating to work on the wall tends to stimulate employees to increase their productivity. Same applies to home office.

A very good design that will probably serve almost all forms of work from home is the “Bold and beckon conceptual kitchen remodel”. This design was originally conceived by the House of L interior Design and it is not space consuming. It is an extension of the kitchen traditionally creating a pathway into the living room and dining area. However, this design is best for a small family and also mostly for a one man job due to the space available. This is in form of cabinet with a chair and every other necessary accessories like computer, note pad and others can be placed on the cabinet. Above all, table, shelves might be constructed to serve as store for materials such as book and many others.


For an office that will serve other purposes apart from what have been enumerated earlier like serving as venues for meetings, discussions and other corporate dealings, it is imperative to use a style befitting for such purposes. Good examples are the refined desert haven designed by Luster custom homes or Kaleb’s home, a brain child of Cinaly Aplanalp-yates and charma design group. They can be modified to enlarge it such that that will be able to host conference meetings or board meeting.

Since home offices are very important in our various lives, for a home worker as his office, for children as a play room, for a business tycoons as alternative to work office. It must be taken care of same as the way work office should be and special effects such as painting and every other important effects should be added to it.

Top Four Contemporary Design Inspirations across the Globe

Man as an intelligent animal has over the years shown the abilities to create extraordinary and exquisite masterpieces. Man’s exploits did not by any means start today. Architectural wonders like the pyramids of Egypt, the hanging garden and many others are example of men’s ingenuity even at that relatively Dark Age.

This century has truly witnessed a whole lot of amazing designs, therefore it will be a very hard task to pick out one of them and label it the best ever, however, we will be treating four of the best architectural and interior design masterpieces in the world today not just for their beauty and glamour but for their place in history and their contribution to the growth of the state they are located.


1. Colosseum: The colosseum is one amazing work of art considering the fact that it was built between 70 and 80 AD at a time when technology was not yet available. The colosseum’s original Latin name was Amphitheatrium Flarium, often anglicized as Flavian Amphitheatre and it is considered as one of the greatest architectural feats achieved by the ancient Romans. It is said to be able to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators and it was used mainly for gladiatorial contests and other activities as time went by. The design and shape of this building has been a source of inspiration for many modern day stadiums.

2. BurjKhalifa: Before now, the common quote was “see Paris and die” but I bet, same can also be said of Dubai, no thanks to the massive efforts by the government to repositioning Dubai to be one of the world’s most tourist friendly country and at the same time diversifying their oil dependent economy. One of the products of this policy us the magnificent BurjKhalifa. The task of developing this mammoth skyscraper was placed on the able hands of the foremost American architectural and engineering firm, Skidmore, Dungs and Merrill LLP and it took more than six years to be completed. Standing at 828.9 metres, it is the tallest building in the world presently. Apart from the amazing structure, the interior design is also one in town showing the rich taste of the Arabs in its design.


3. Park Royal hotel, Singapore: The park Royal hotel can be said to be a perfect example of architectural, design and sculptural beauty. Designed in 2013 by WOHA architects, it has gone ahead to win numerous awards in many categories worldwide. It is a 12 story building with a total of 346 rooms. It has a sky-garden that is solar powered and the interior designs have no equal in Singapore as a whole.

4. Pharmiyan Residence: Some people might be wondering why this has found itself in this list, but this building located in Colorado, USA is the true meaning of beauty, elegance and simplicity. Located in a serene environment, it has a swimming pool for relaxation, the lightings and the interior designs are equally amazing in their right.

One must be mindful of the fact that as time changes, more designs are bound to come from man’s brilliant mind, so it shouldn’t be a surprise if BurjKhalifa becomes “one of those buildings” tomorrow.

Bathroom Design Inspiration Ideas Possible In 2015


As time went by, bathrooms went from being given little or no attention in the scheme of things in homes, offices, airports, or hotels to one of the most expensive sections of buildings today. A poor bathroom in terms of equipment, design or care may lead to infections or may lead to loss of customers as concerned commercial centres like hotel or airport.

Over the years, a lot of designs have been introduced no thanks to the rapid growth of the interior design industry over the years that one might ordinarily get confused choosing the right design due to the amazingly large number of beautiful ones available.



Firstly, the walls and the floor would be better off being sealed with tiles. A high quality tile should be used putting in mind the colours which will go on to influence the overall outcome. A high quality white tile would be ideal for the walls, we must keep in mind the fact that the bathroom should be a clean place with zero tolerance for dirt, therefore, white perfectly fits the profile and also matching with the colour of the bath tub and other bathroom accessories which must be white. However, in order not to make the bathroom look too flat colour-wise, a distinct colour is infused into the white tiles to make it stand out. A bright brown or gold colour will be perfect for this purpose. This infused part should however be small compared to the other parts and at the middle. It will also be nice to combine colours in the bathroom by infusing different colours of tile into the four different sides of the bathroom thereby making it one exciting place to be in.


The floor tiles also have to be carefully chosen, it must have a slightly firm grip for friction purpose for hotel especially, one should be mindful of the fact that various customers will use the facility, therefore the goal should be to satisfy everyone of them. The floor gets dirty easily compared to the wall, therefore a colour of dark touch will be good for this purpose.

Also for the ceiling, a quality ceiling should be used, preferably not PVC being that it usually causes heat more, it should be coloured white and the lighting must be beautiful white light showcasing the beauty of the bathroom.

Finally, we can decide to go an extra mile by adding a touch of nature to complement the serenity of the facility, Fresh flowers in large vases should be placed side by side with a large mirror standing between them.

Fresh Home With Indian Sensibility Interior Design Ideas


In recent times, people have come to recognize the importance of interior designs in homes, hotels or offices with it taking a chunk of the budgets for modern homes this days, they do not only beautify and add value to the home but most importantly give it that warm welcoming look it deserves.

Culture plays a very important role in interior decoration as is religion and traditions also as in every walk of life. One ordinarily would not expect a British home to be decorated same way as a Chinese home.


                In designing a home’s interior, it is imperative that we evaluate many factors such as finance, space available and other important ones before choosing the objects, colours and every other relevant materials needed. In the words of Charlotte Moss, “Take the time and do some small thing that will be noticed and remembered, choose your objects carefully and buy what you love”. This is very important so as not to do job that you will probably not be proud of later.

From available statistics, most Indian homes are mostly red colour toned in their designs, however that does not mean everyone should also follow that trend which makes case for the influx of many capable hands for more inspirations.


Every part of the house should be decorated based on the importance and use, from the sitting room to the dining room, bed rooms and kitchen. The sitting room is unarguably the most important part every house, serves as point of entry for some and for all where visitors are received highlighting its importance in giving a first impression. The following applies to all. The wall apart from giving support to the house also is the most important part as far as decoration is concerned. White colour seems to be the best colour at the moment in this aspect, it gives homes that serene, natural beauty.


Putting in mind the wall colour, every other part of the living room must be decorated using it as a benchmark. The ceiling naturally should have the same colour as the wall and it must be neatly decorated to make it eye catching to a first time visitor. Also, the furniture are very important as it tends to be the most noticed aspect apart from the wall and ceiling. Baring in mind the already used white colour, a bright colour may be employed in this case such as light green or bright red showing the other side of the colour combination. The rug/foot mat is another important part of every home, in this case, a dull colour having touch of black should be employed.
