First built as a functional furniture item, the canopy bed became the canvas for inspiring carvings and design interpretations in different upscale residences. From four poster beds with curtains that kept warmth in and noise out to ornate canopy beds of the wealthy, this fairly simple bed design has seen a revival in contemporary interior design. Furthermore, the canopy bed is certainly no longer a luxury item for the wealthy, you can actually find some stylish and affordable canopy beds here on walmart.com (we were surprised with quality of their selection!).
While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to personal comfort, but for this review we split the difference and searched for the best mattress at a medium firmness. For comparing prices, we looked only at queen-size mattresses, the less expensive of the regal options.
This bathroom takes on a garden theme, bringing what lies beyond the sliding doors inside. Lush greenery covers the wall just behind the white oval bathtub. The sink has been designed in a unique barrel shape and the water flows from a stainless faucet that comes from above and out of a mirrored stone wall. The open roof and glass doors allow ample natural lighting. Drop pendant lighting is added for after the sun goes down. To make a head-turning bathroom there are many Beautiful Bathtubs to choose from.
Today we are sharing another English country style eye-candy – this kitchen by Max Rollitt is full of beautiful ideas for those who are looking for some. Let’s take a closer look at this cutie.
We know the psychological effect and mental state a room can put one into; the colors, feel and energy which it emits. It just so happens the bedroom is the first environment we are subjected to when our eyes open and it's also the last image which we have when falling asleep. A few of us here are interested in psychology and we believe a healthy way to start the day is to wake up in a bedroom environment which stimulates positive mental energy, which is the perfect springboard to Carpe Diem the day with true passion and gusto.
Sifting through the labyrinth to find the right mattress, however, can cause even the savviest of shoppers to forfeit precious sleep researching competitive brands into the wee hours of the morning. Fortunately, you can rest easy; we have definitively chosen the mattresses that dreams are made of.
The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it's to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they'll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both.
When it comes to sleep, comfort is not a luxury, it's a necessity. For many, finding the right mattress can be the difference between waking up well-rested and “stay out of my way, there literally isn't enough coffee in the world.”
This robot is a fun DIY project and just so happens to work as a versatile toilet paper holder too. Made from verified eco-friendly basswood, the pieces are easy to assemble – and when you're done you can reposition the arms and hands or even make the robot hold items. It looks great unpainted but can be spruced up to match your bathroom with ease. The design is based on the Chinese character jiong, often used as an emoticon online.
