Small Tricks for Adding Warmth to Your Home Décor

Small Tricks for Adding Warmth to Your Home Décor
Small towns are full of quaint, sweet houses perfect for individuals with eclectic style. Eclectic style is characterized by mixing items of multiple design genres and placing them in close proximity of one another. The contrast creates a sense of warmth and charm. It’s easy to do, especially if you have an eye for unique items that have a lot of character or are conversation starters. Just be sure not to overdo it with knickknacks – keep surfaces and spaces edited down and curated for an elevated style. Here are a few hints for adding warmth to your eclectic style.
Living Things
Plants and flowers always add charm to a space. Even if you’re not the best at keeping plants alive, many companies now manufacture artificial plants that look almost exactly like the real thing. A bit of green or a splash of natural color go a long way. Choose plants that match your design aesthetic. If you prefer real plants but don’t have a green thumb, succulents and cacti are fantastic options that require little attention – just be sure to give them enough sun. Choose cute, interesting pots with splashes of color and in multiple shapes to give dimension.
Photographs always bring warmth and charm into a room, but you want to make sure to match the aesthetic of the photos to your design aesthetic. Many small towns have homes that hold a good deal of charm already, such as homes for sale in Elizabethtown, KY. If your home has its own style, such as a Victorian, a craftsman, or a mid-century home, use elements from its built-in character to determine what kind of frames to purchase. Your grandparents’ church directory picture may not be the best option to put in the frames – choose candid photos that evoke every-day beauty rather than ultra-posed photos.

Shelves full of books may not be the most popular in design magazines, and with everything becoming more digital, they may not be as prevalent in homes anymore. However, few things are more charming than a shelf full books just waiting to be enjoyed. If you’d like to add a bit more design to your book titles, consider organizing them on the shelves by spine color. Even a small shelf below a window or a sweet little end table full of 15-20 books adds charm.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
