Flexform sectionals

Are very comfortable. They are like a piece of art (priced as one as well) you happen to use as a sofa. they are vestile; you can change them around and reconfigure them to look and function as a different piece of furniture. They look inviting to sit it, i will just let the pictures say it all. here are few that i love. Patrik is my favorite. i find that these work well in lofts and large open floor plans, but they can also be used in small spaces as well, it just has to be done carefully.

Halloween Decor

When decorating for halloween, you can go all out for a bunch of stuff you are gonna be unable to use for another 11 months, or you can buy a few accesories and have a theme going. This year i am going with skulls, they are in, they are cute, sometimes free (killed any one lately you better recycle; at J.W interiors we are green). i will put these skills in a few places, continue the themes in accesorie like in the bar, pillows, place setting etc. Then be sure to invite a few friends over have a few drinks in the costumes that revel who you really desire to be.

Plasma T.V stand

I love this as a T.V stand for it's simple, clean, classic lines. it fits with all types of decor whether tranditional or modern this will work with. It is also very functional it hides awaythings you do not want to be displayed yet it leaves enough open space for cable boxes or dvd players making remote control easy. it also has cut outs in the back for all the wiring (can't wait to go wireless). Did i mention it is fully assembled and made of hardwood makes it heavy but this is a piece you can pass on to future generations (assuming they have your good taste). it can be used for other things too.

plan for my livingroom

I am a t.v addict, i love trash t.v, intellectual programs, cartoons, bravo oh the dramma, the laughs, anyway you get the picture. So I decided to combine my dining room and living room so i can be able to watch T.V as i eat.

The essential: Sofa

There is nothing more comforting than a plush deep soft sofa after a hard day of work. It's always there welcoming, and comforting you after a hard day's work. Seating is an essential in a living room's design and it should be a good investment because you are going to spend a lot of time on it. Things you should consider in a sofa are the frame; is it strong, what kind of wood is it made of, what's the guarante on the frame. It should be a life time warrant on a good one. Second what type of fill the sofa has; foam, feather down, or a combination of the two. the other thing to consider is the style. This is also as important as comfort. if it looks ugly it most likely does not look inviting. My recomendation is MW+BG fletcher sofa it has all those elements that make an essential.

Finding your style

So you want your space re-designed but you are not really sure what style you want. Before you leave it all to an interior designer here are a few things you should do to ensure that you are happy with the over all design of your space. these are things your designer might do with you but remember it might not be free so it's better you have an idea of what you want before hand. Take a look in some interior design magazines (dwell, domino, architectural digest, home and garden etc) to get an idea of what kind of room design you like. Your interior designer will really get a good idea of what type of style interests you and you will both understand eachother better. This will prevent common misunderstandings that can be easilly avoided. Anyway you designer should present the over all design before actually going through with it but there can be little snags like a product being out of stock. if you designer has a good idea of your style they can easily find you a great substitute of the product.

Claw foot tub

There is something simple yet elegant about the claw foot tub. It's a classic that never seems to go out of style. There are many options for a claw foot tube; you have a choice between cast iron or arcylic, painted exterior or not, and the claws can be removed incase you ever need to change them. Some people thing of a claw foot tub as a small tub but it comes in many sizes. you can have it as large as 72inches, and it can with holes or without holes for plumbing. What i love most about claw foot tubs is the way it contours to you body for a good soak. you can lay back for long periods of time without experiencing neck or back pain.

Your bed is an important item in you life. it's where you lay your head, it's where "the magic happens" it's where you wish to stay on those cold mornings before work. In bed is where you go to journeys and great adventures in dreams, it soothes and comforts and so it should be a place you can't wait to return to. There are many bed styles i like. The biggest component of a bed is the headboard. this is what your bed linens should be based on and it also determines how you pillows are arranged. Upholstered headboards look great and come in a variety of styles that match any decor. you can use pretty much any fabric in any color. You have options such as nailhead trim, tuffed buttons, and even wood framed. They can also be cost effective since they are easy to make. if you are not interested in any DIY there are plenty of stores that offer them., etc. there other treatments things you can do like siver or gold leafing a typical headboard, and a nice hardwood headboard is always a classic.
