Artificial silk trees are the best way of bringing out the season’s thrill and give a new touch to the living space. All of these trees are the same, but how one uses, arranges and personalizes them is what makes them different. The big advantage of investing in them is that they last for many years without withering or shedding leaves. They will always remain in good condition if they are properly maintained. They also help reduce the space and make the place homely, warm and of good atmosphere.
The easiest and most successful way is to plant trees. Become green in the actual sense of the word. You can easily find beautiful plants at your local nursery. Browse through it and pick those that would add to your house’s beauty and appeal. Line them around your windowsill in vases: recycle it by yourself. Don’t throw out those broken beads of necklaces, those old glass or tiles that you don’t need any more. Use them to make a pattern on your vase, which is matchless in its own sense. Not only vases, such bits and pieces, which people throw away senselessly, make great frames, ornament pieces, jewellery items, embellishments on footwear and what not.
If your living room is open to the foyer and the kitchen, be more careful in your color choices. It is much better to choose lighter paint color for an open living room adjacent to the kitchen and the hallway. You still can bring in accent colors on certain walls as you infuse the space with darker accent walls.
One important accessory that does not get enough attention from Home improvement is an oil lamp with a state of the art antique oil lamp shade.A small decoration piece such an antique shade can take you far while creating the perfect Victorian look which requires the lighting to be decorative, beautiful and lavish. A simple light bulb can hardly do the trick. Most of the antique shades available today were made during the Victorian era and incorporate every characteristic that a Victorian style lighting fixture should have.
Step one is to pass through each space and clear the disorder. Move out ornaments and knick-knacks In Zen, you have to clear the clutter so as to clear the mind. Be brutal when going through your items. What you determine to keep should serve a purpose. If you lack the heart to remove something, keep it aside out of view.
First, you will need a topiary tree (the one shown is an artificial one picked up at a yard sale), or an actual shrub or you can even gather a large twig from your yard as the host of your festive autumn entry display. Remember to make sure the tree or twig is firmly supported in a pot or holder so the vicious winds of autumn don’t knock it over. Next, wrap exterior-rated twinkle lights around the tree, shrub or twig. The topiary tree in the picture has 100 twinkle lights on it. You can add more or less to your liking. If you don’t want to have to run electricity to the tree, consider the battery operated strings of lights.
One major drawback of antique shades is that they are limited in supply and can be very expensive. But there is a silver lining, these shades are a great way to invest your money and their value will only increase with time. Hence, think of it as an investment rather than an expense. When you get bored of your old shade put it on the market and then purchase a new one with the money that you made. Come to think of it, antique oil lamp shades are better than modern shades because they can be easily resold.
