I have had this opportunity of making friends with a Japanese girl. We are together in a Norwich University College of the Arts. My upbringing has been typical English and just to mingle with a person of absolute diverse cultural background has been a great experience for me. To my surprise I have started liking many things about their culture. I love the way they bond with their family and simple lifestyle they follow.
One thing that I have practically started following is sitting cross legged on the floor. Oh! Having a meal sitting on the floor was not easy for me in the beginning. I started using floor cushion for this purpose. Now my dining space has a low table not much above the ground level with colourful cotton floor cushions scattered around it. My friends and guests love sitting on them and sipping the green tea I offer. Most of the chairs and English furniture I had is now lying in the attic and I love having the East Asian style home decor. My room does not look crowded and I feel at peace when I sit and do my college projects or anything. One of my friend was so impressed with my latest infatuation of sitting on the floor cushions that she particularly asked me, where I got them from. The store I selected them from had it in all the styles. They were in designer prints, checks, stripes and solid plain colours. I am very fond of bright plain shades therefore the Home decor cushions that I bought were all in different beautiful plain colours.
If we start doing something which is different from the typical style we have been following for ages, let me assure you works as a great stress buster. At least it did for me. Make some changes in your life as well and feel the difference. Cheers!
When your home starts to feel stylistically stale, it’s tempting to imagine what you’d do with unlimited funds and an army of contractors. Big fixes go a long way, but don’t get caught up in something drastic when a smaller change — such as adding a rug or installing new flooring — can bring a static room into a different light. If you’re looking to change your space without a complete overhaul, consider some of these smaller tweaks.
Do More With Your Floor: That space at your feet can significantly impact your room as there are some dramatic options with your flooring. If you have old wall-to-wall carpet, rip it up and replace it with new carpet. Use floor cushions or floor rugs if you don’t wish to redo the whole floor.
Add Spice with Accessories: Tie the room together with accessories. There are a number of options depending on your style and can include throws, rugs, pillows, candles, dried flowers etc. that appeal to you.
Replace your old Upholstery: Give your well-used cushions an inexpensive makeover with stylish new upholstery. Mixing and matching fabrics can help create a new feel in your living room. Add a few pillows to complete the transformation. Coloured Cushion Covers can also be used in case you are not in a mood to replace your old cushions. Look at homescapesonline for cushion covers.
Make it more than just a wall: Turn your wall into a conversation piece by hanging wall accessories from Homescapes. Choose from the wide range of wall hanging for your wall and make it more than just a wall.
Figure out for furniture: Furniture is one of the main acts in your room reinvention, but don’t think you have to drop a fortune on a new set. If you wish to change your furniture go for Dakota wood or mango wood as they are functional and durable.
