The more private sleeping and bathing areas are situated in an enclosed cantilevered bar, which hovers over the hillside and is nestled amidst the tall pine trees located at the perimeter of the property. A white plaster shell demarcates the spatial hierarchy of the house, operating as a supporting floor plate for the private volume, then folding upward to serve as clerestory roof plane over the more public spaces. This undulating skin enhances and mitigates the varying degrees of enclosure and exposure to the picturesque surroundings and skyline views which encircle the property.

Texture for Your Walls



If you would like to have in your home something different on your wall you can take a look at these wall flat patterns available at Inhabit Living that are absolutely .and a green solution for any modern home.

Walls & Ceilings



Walls and ceilings are the surfaces in our homes that partition our spaces and provide a sense of enclosure. They are both functional and, to state the obvious, important to the look of our interior spaces. This section of HomeTips explores walls and ceilings—how they are built, the various choices available for building and finishing these surfaces, and how to install and maintain wall and ceiling materials.For interior painting, see Paint & Painting, and for wallpaper and coverings, see Decorating & Furnishing.

Decorating your Foyer or Entrance



The most important space in your home is the entry. It is the first area that people will see when they enter your home.
It sets the decorating tone for the rest of your home and should make your visitors say, "I can't wait to see the rest of your beautiful home!"

To make a decorative statement in your entry hall, adding plants, accessories and color are easy ways to transform the space.
• Choose a color for the walls, which will flow well with the other rooms that branch off the entry. For a classic look, choose a plant such as the Ficus.
For a more contemporary look, choose a palm tree. However, keep in mind that live plants need light so if your entryway doesn't get much, think about a silk tree or use a colorful floral arrangement to add excitement. Mirrors can help dark entry come alive; it also allows you to check yourself before leaving or greeting guest.
• For a traditional look, select a beautiful Oriental rug, which will hold up under traffic well and tends to conceal dirt. If you want something more contemporary choose sisal.
• Use one main piece of furniture like a chest or console table to anchor the area. Add a basket for keys and if the table is open underneath add a fern to fill the open area.
• Hang a picture or mirror above and then display a favorite collection and/or lamps on it.
• Add a coat rack to allow space for coats to be hung and umbrellas to be stored when entering the home.
• Having a chair in the entry will provide a place for bags or a seat to remove dirty shoes.
Even if you don’t have a foyer per say, you can still create a stunning entry by following the simple steps listed above at the entrance of your home. Remember for what ever type of entry that you do have, keep it clean of clutter to allow for easy entrance and exiting.

Revitalise your walls with wall décor stickers



The walls are exquisitely painted, not a spot of blemish and you have perhaps kept them spotless since you first had them painted. Well, congratulations, but it’s time to spruce those walls up with something new and fancy! And no, it’s not about re-painting so don’t fret; you can transform those walls by simply using wall decor stickers!

Just as the name suggests, wall décor stickers are stuck onto the wall and within minutes, the room is completely transformed! Each vinyl sticker contains individually cut out characters. They come in various shapes, sizes and colour to suit your taste.
Furthermore, this variety come in handy to suit the different rooms in the house, say for the children’s room, there are cartoon and animation stickers. Also, what better way to teach your toddler the alphabet or numbers than sticking them onto their bedroom walls?

For the sitting room, there are decorative stickers, fruit and vegetable stickers for the kitchen and a variety for the other rooms in the house. What’s more, these stickers are not only for homes but can be used in offices to create an elegant but subtle decoration to suit the work environment.

The primary advantage of wall décor stickers is that they allow you to personalise your home using your creativity. Even better, with all the style the stickers come with, there’s not much work needed to have them put up.
“Often, changing paint and wallpaper is tedious and expensive in the long run, but with vinyl stickers, one can change the appearance of their walls as often as they want with ease,” says Carolyne Owarwo Mulinde, director of Feed My Lamb Wall Graphics along Bukoto Street, Kamwokya.

At the mention of stickers on walls, one might fear them damaging paint when peeled off but Owarwo is quick to explain that the material which these stickers are made of is vinyl, so what does this imply? “These vinyl stickers do not peel off with the paint. Peeling them off will leave the wall as good as it was before.”

Besides not spoiling the paint when peeled off, below are a number of advantages the stickers have over paint and wallpaper.

Removable and reusable
Owarwo explains that unlike ordinary stickers, the life span of vinyl wall stickers does not end once peeled off the wall; they can be reused.
She is definitely not backing a product she is not acquainted with and confidently adds, “I have moved offices three times but the stickers I had in the first office are the same stickers I am using today.”

Also, you can change the stickers according to an event, say, if you have a party, you could use appropriate colourful stickers in your living room to suit the event and later peel them off and store them for the next event.

Easy to work with
What is easier than peeling and sticking? You can even have your children do their own rooms as they please. Wall stickers, unlike paint and wallpaper, do not require an assortment of tools to work with. You won’t need to hire workmanship to have your stickers up because you can do this yourself. Furthermore, these are not like paint that you may be forced to stand for a number of years simply because you will spend a fortune hiring painters to re-do it. You can peel décor stickers off even as soon as sticking them up, without any hassle.

Colour and design
Vinyl wall decor stickers present you with the opportunity to utilise colours that you would probably not have easily found in paint. What’s more, you can create designs that otherwise would have been expensive or difficult with paint.

Life-size
You can get stickers in any size you desire, say, if your child wants a life-size sticker of Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh or any other animation, you can have it stuck to their wall and create their dream bedroom.

Fade and water resistant
“A sticker will not lose colour because of water,” says Owarwo. They will stay as good as new due to the high quality inks that make them resistant to fading and water.

Fun and creativity
The flexibility of stickers spurs your creativity. You can stick these stickers in any arrangement you fancy! Let your creativity lead you to your very own unique and beautiful wall décor. You can have fun as a family when deciding which colours and stickers are best for each of the different rooms in your house.

Costs
Owarwo says the cost of a set of stickers depends on the size and design. “The more complicated or bigger the design, the more costly. A set goes for between Shs60,000 and Shs210,000 at Feed My Lamb Wall Graphics, Shoprite.” Joy Kiggundu, a sales lady at Aristoc Bookstore Kampala Road, says they have stickers for children’s bedrooms that cost from Shs2,500 to Shs3,500, although these are paper, not vinyl.

Owarwo regrettably says that Ugandans have not yet embraced the idea of using these stickers. “These stickers are more common in the west but Ugandans should try them out because of their efficiency.”
So, desiring to transform your walls without going through much hustle? Find the vinyl wall décor sticker designs that strike you most, let your creativity lead the way and customise your walls to do away with that bare appearance.

Fall inspired interiors

I refuse to make my home look like a pumpkin station in order to make it look more appropriate looking for Autumn. I love how the interiors in these images below give that understated feeling of warmth and nostalgia without screaming Autumn. It's amazing how simple things such as exposed wood, touches of browns, leather furniture, a cashmere blanket or pillow could also bring the Fall vibe inside a home.

Modern Design of House in Bosch en Duin by Maas Architects

House in Bosch en Duin by Maas ArchitectsDesigned by Maas Architects in the Netherlands, this modern architecture structure features a beautiful driveway and parking space spacious enough for half a dozen cars to easily park. The design makes use of very light colors to bounce light around inside and thus reduce the need for electric lights.
Outside is a man made pond that stretches from behind the house as well as a beautiful pool and summer style gazebo which offers seating for 4. All in all the design is simple and yet highly sophisticated. One of the best ideas of the house is the use of huge glass windows in the back. Since privacy is protected by shrubs and trees, this provides an awesome way to still maintain privacy and yet experience maximum visibility.
