Tips on Antique Pieces

Quick Tips on Buying Antique Pieces
- Educate yourself, read historical books and vintage collectables, don;'t just go for a vintage luxury items without knowing the history behind it.
- Outsourcing antique items from overseas. Combine your holiday with antique not so well known shops, you never know what you can find.
- Knowing exactly where the pieces are coming from. What's the history behind them, when and where were they made. Ask questions, get all the correct documentation.
-inspect your piece. Make sure there's no modern nail or restaurations. Nothing beats the natural state of the exquisite antique piece
- Build up a good repor with the dealer/seller . Tell them about what you love and what your are looking for. You never know, they might find something that might interest you later!

Creating s Sexy Bedroom

Another great article from Elle Décor.
I would also add candles and a nice scent to the bedroom. And maybe a shaggy rug...

Bedding to Spend All Day In

Crisp white sheets in thread counts ranging from 450 to 650 create the sexiest tactile experience in terms of bedding. Keep the sheets plain; go no fancier than a top sheet with embroidery. And don’t go overboard with too many pillows.
"Even if you’re watching your wallet, the place to spend the money is the bedding." —Cathy Hobbs, founder of Aphereä
"People will over-pillow the bed," warns designer Eric Cohler, of Eric Cohler Design Inc. It’s not sexy to have a romantic interlude put on pause while all the pillows are removed.
"For a two-person bed, you need at most two Euro-sham-size pillows (placed against the headboard), and four sleeping pillows." —Designer Rebecca Cole, Rebecca Cole Design

Flooring That Makes You Weak in the Knees

Wall-to-wall carpeting, in either 100% wool, or a wool-silk blend, will give the most sumptuous landing to your feet—or to your entire body if the mood strikes.
"For anything but a beach house—where wood floors are fine—you should have wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedroom." —Harry Heissmann, Senior Designer, Albert Hadley Inc.
"A wool rug with silk in it will create a beautiful shimmering effect in candlelight." —Designer Amy Lau

Decor Advice from Lauren Conrad

Some things come naturally to certain people: baking, drawing, decorating a room… For the rest of us, it takes an education. When I decorated my first apartment, I knew what I wanted but had trouble bringing that vision to life. I guess you could say I was overwhelmed. The daunting task of pulling together a space that wasn’t just a bedroom in a fully furnished house, seemed like an impossible chore. As with all things, it took practice, a few moves, and some divine (design) inspiration to finally feel comfortable decorating my home.
Whether your space is simply a room or an entire house, there are a few things I’ve learned about interior design to help you conquer your design demons…

#1: Personalize your space.
Your home (or room) should reflect who you are. If someone were to walk into your home, they should know that it’s yours. The best way to achieve this is by including accessories that reveal your hobbies and interests. What’s important is that you distance yourself from what the stores are telling you to buy. Often times we are drawn to ideas that are trendy or pre-done: “Of course this white lacquered elephant statue would look great in my bedroom!” But is that really you? Maybe not. Instead, aim for pieces that compliment your personal clothing style. You may be surprised to discover that styling an outfit isn’t too different from decorating a room. So take a look in your closet. What colors are you drawn to? Do you prefer mod or modern? Clean cuts or lacy ruffles? Use your taste in clothing as a style guide for your home–it’s an easy way to ensure your space is 100% you.

#2: Work with your surroundings.
It’s important to understand your design limitations. Be familiar with the size and scale of the room. Also, consider your environment and respond to it. Whether you’re in the city or the countryside, it helps to take a cue from your surroundings. In turn, you can narrow down your choices based on the context of your space.

#3: Keep comfort in mind.
Have you ever purchased a piece of furniture simply because it was pretty, only to discover that it’s painfully uncomfortable (or useless)? I don’t know about you, but I am definitely guilty of this offense. Nevertheless, the silver lining of this mistake is that I learned an important lesson: comfort is key. When I think of “home sweet home,” the first word that comes to mind is cozy. Making your home comfy and cozy is a must. Nothing is worse than going to a friend’s house and awkwardly balancing on their post-modern chair. Your space should be inviting and comfortable.

#4: Stick with the classics.
There’s a reason classic is, well, classic. Incorporating pieces that have withstood the test of time gives you the freedom to translate them as your design style evolves. Using classic furniture, prints, and fabrics provides you with a basic foundation to build on with trendy or personalized accessories and finishes. Let’s say you find a gorgeous antique credenza or a traditional armchair. You love the shape and feel of the piece, but the finish or fabric is all wrong. In this situation, I say: invest! There are plenty of ways to transform an older, classic shaped piece of furniture. If it’s a sofa: reupholster, add throw pillows… An aged dresser: paint it! The possibilities are endless when it comes to updating a timeless piece.
#5 Less is more.

Keep it simple. You don’t want to overcrowd your space. If you edit the items in each room, the area will appear to be cleaner and even bigger. Just remember, you can always add more!
I hope you find my tips helpful the next time you find yourself face-to-face with an interior design project.

The 10 Things You Must Have In Your Home By Age 30

I absolutely love this article from Elle Décor. If you are in search of must haves for you home but not sure what to get, here is your ultimate checklist.

1. Art You Love

"Art stays with you for a lifetime, and each piece marks a place and a memory," says Todd Nickey of Nickey Kehoe. "Start collecting when you're young—it doesn't have to cost a fortune, it just has to speak to you."

2. An Organized Bookshelf

Consider the bookshelf an inspirational place to display everything that's uniquely you—then you can personalize and change it over the years as you see fit.

3. Matching Towels

Buy at least two sets of towels that you're happy to use and proud to lend to house guests.

4. A Plant

"Even if you're in a rental, a plant will make your home feel more permanent," says designer Grant K. Gibson, who recommends choosing something tall and substantial over many smaller houseplants.

5. A Nice Mattress and Headboard

"Invest in your bed during your adult life," says Gibson. You'll want to choose a quality mattress for comfort, and a headboard for character

6. A Collection

"Start a collection when you're young," says designer Sara Story. "It's great to pick up things you love from your travels—especially art and furniture."

7. Bathroom Accessories (That Aren't Plastic)

It's time to say goodbye to anything you bought at a dollar store and upgrade to something with real heft and beauty.

8. A Favorite Candle (Or The Knowledge That You're Not A Scent Person)

"A beautiful candle adds scent and personality to a room," says Gibson. Of course, this tip is the ultimate personal preference—if adding a candle to your home is your worst nightmare, stick with your instincts. 

9. Two Bedside Tables

A bedside table on each side provides optimal personal balance (according to Feng Shui) and a mature, cohesive look.

10. A Luxurious Throw

"A good throw is an investment that adds a finishing touch to your sofa or chair—even if they're not your 'forever pieces,'" says Gibson.

6 Ways to Spark Your Creativity

Test your boundaries
Stretch your limits and get uncomfortable! Immerse yourself in something you find intriguing and slightly scary. Study a foreign language or do something risky and get your adrenaline pumping. Jump out of an airplane, hike a mountain or run faster and harder than you thought you could. The added benefit to taking the exercise route is that it send a rush of dopamine to your brain — an essential component to forming ideas and new connections in your mind.
Turn off the TV
This kind of mindless activity is not one that fosters brilliance. One study reveals that watching pointless shows actually makes us dumber…
Find Inspiring Tools
What gives you inspiration and fires up your imagination? For some it’s music, for others, it may be looking at a photo, picture or symbol. Perhaps it could be communing with nature, reading a certain passage or quote. Inspiration comes in many forms and it’s important for us to know what gets our creative juices flowing. Whatever it is, use the stimulating tool of choice to help launch creative thoughts.
Use your nose
When your head’s not working, your nose might be of assistance! One study found those who were exposed to rosemary aroma had higher concentration and cognitive performance. Cinnamon and vanilla scents have also been linked to increased creativity.
Stop feeling like you’re a slacker! New findings find that flashes of insight often come when your mind is relaxed on completing a specific task.  Simply allow your mind to wander! You can read more on Day dreaming in our article HERE.
Criticize later 
Or some part of your mind may feel threatened and shut up and withdraw. Just let ideas flow out, No idea is silly! It’s important to keep an atmosphere of openness when trying to generate ideas and being creative. You can sort the ideas later and determine which ones may be of best use.

The Winter Jewels Collection by Megan Hess

I'm a big fan of Megan Hess's work, he is amazingly talented illustrator and designer. I follow her work all the time and was so excited when I saw her latest collaboration with Designer Rugs.

“Creating my first collection with Designer Rugs has been one of the most exciting collaborations that I’ve ever worked on… standing here with the finished rugs under my toes, they are just as I imagined them to be; three Illustrations brought to life by the finest Artisans in the most beautiful Wools, ready to fill a room with all the same inspiration that went into creating them.”

“I really wanted each design to tell its own story and be the anchor to everything that surrounds it. Like the conductor of an orchestra, a rug is often the piece that sets the tone and leads the other elements.”

Im loving the industrial style right now. Lots of cold iron, metallics, raw materials and woods. Industrial can be quite cool and sleak, definitely a perfect choice for all the minimalists out there. Organic Interiors will be moving towards commercial spaces soon and we would love to perfect the cool industrial feel.

18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently

18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently
Main Entry Image        
Creativity works in mysterious and often paradoxical ways. Creative thinking is a stable, defining characteristic in some personalities, but it may also change based on situation and context. Inspiration and ideas often arise seemingly out of nowhere and then fail to show up when we most need them, and creative thinking requires complex cognition yet is completely distinct from the thinking process.
