Home Decor Items

How many times were you faced with procuring a gift and didn’t have a clue where to begin? Have you ever considered handmade gifts or home décor items?

To some, shopping for handmade gifts means the items are inexpensive or lacking in quality. This is not always the case.

Usually handmade items are different from their mass produced counterparts. You’ll see hard to find, unique, and some truly individually designed products. A hand stitch or two may be visible, but this is one of the things that makes the product unique because the human element is apparent, which is priceless.

Remember to keep the recipient in mind when selecting a gift. What are their special interests, hobbies, pets, outdoor activities, and indoor activities? Ask a few questions of someone who may know the answers, this will be your basis for a gift idea.

Handmade items are special and beyond what may be considered the norm. The recipient will take notice that you thought enough of them to get something truly unique.

Gift ideas may include home decorating items like handmade decorative pillows, embellished chic shabby guest towels, vintage pillows, cat lover gifts, handmade wallets, handbags, bedding ensembles, music boxes and embroidered items.

Where might you find handmade gift items? The internet, local craft shops, craft fairs, and specialty boutiques.

A Peek Inside a Danish Home Design

One of the wonderful things about having a sister in Denmark is having her share with me some of her favorite shops. She was excited to see this shop featured in Skona Hem and sent it along to me. K & CO is a wonderful antique shop in Copenhagen. The owner's home was recently profiled in the magazine. Their home is a wonderful mix of industrial and Gustavian styles. Let's have a peek.
In the entryway a console table with marble top was given a new coat of Gustavian gray paint. The iron roof decoration is a beautiful focal point and the vintage shelf makes wonderful coat rack.
The living room is an interesting mix of hard industrial lines and soft linen upholstery. The antique pedestals, lamps and desk, add interest and soften the room. The vintage clock and antique shutters above the couch are charming.
Through out the home the couple adds unique accessories that add whimsy, texture and personality to the space. Above are rusty steeple finials that once sat on a church roof.
The kitchen is a wonderful mix of stainless steel appliances, Ikea cabinets and hand worn antiques. I love the Danish hanging cupboard filled with traditional blue willow plates. Also the Tolix chairs add a wonderful feeling to this space. The owners enhanced the chandelier with antique crystals.
Part of an ancient altar screen hangs on the opposite wall of the kitchen.
The dining area also has the Tolix chairs. I love the linen pillows as chair cushions. The chandelier gives the space a bit more formality and sparkle; and the mirrors bring your eye up and open up the room. Vintage candlesticks and fluted cast iron urn add a rustic contrast.
Finally the bedroom is serene in all white. The owners collection of vintage perfume bottles and female bust in Bronze become a uniquely personal vignette.
With such wonderful items available to them, they certainly have created a gorgeous home.

Now that problem is eliminated as every user can easily translate thoughts into solid designs with just the click of the mouse!

Most often we start thinking that our design is perfectly right, but we then need to face up to new and unforeseen challenges. Using the virtual prototypes, one can eliminate such errors or even keep them to an absolute bare minimum. You can erase, start again from the basics and re-do it with new ideas as many times as you want without spending a single dime. This might take time, but its way lot less than the hassle of having to put something in place, and then remove it and redesign.

This is pretty self-explanatory. If you know exactly what you are getting and can see on a screen what your home will finally look like, planning is a lot easier. You can try a million designs in the virtual world, stick to the one you love in the real world. Most importantly, this will give you a good night’s sleep as you will not be worried about ‘what it would look like’.

You can even create customized options and get cost estimations for re-decorating in case of sophisticated CAD applications. Just depends on what you need.

It has bridged the gap between ideas and reality offering you an easy way to design your own stuff.

Considering that there is never a finals solution, you are always looking for something better!

For many people it is impossible to find window treatments to fit these windows. They are at a loss as to what to do with these windows and the arch just ignored while the rest of the window is covered. The result is a disjointed look both from the inside and out. Here are some window treatment ideas for your arched windows.

Treat it like a
Normal window:

For a
wall of arched windows that you would like to cover with window treatments, hang a straight rod above the windows the length of the entire wall. Then hang curtain panels that cover the entirety of the windows and wall when the treatment is close. When open, it will reveal as much window as possible. Ideally, when the curtains are open, only the wall in between the windows should be covered with drapes.
