Draperies and curtains

The curtains on the windows are one of the most important elements of home decoration. They can mitigate disadvantages of windows, extend or expand them as needed. For example, if you want to visually expand the window, the curtains need to hang on either side, taking part of the wall to the right or left. If you need to visually narrow the window, the curtains hung on the eaves, the corresponding value of the window opening, and the length of the curtain is brought to the floor.

Any curtains look very nice when they are draped voluminous pleats or gathers. For this purpose the width of the cloth to be half as long as the width of the window opening.

If the walls are painted or papered with colored wallpaper without pattern, for curtains that can (and should) use a cloth with a pattern, the pattern itself or the background fabric should match the color of the walls, that is, I was with them the same color but a different hue. For rooms where the wallpaper have a pattern used for curtains or melkouzorchatye smooth fabric.

Today it is considered fashionable to lay on the floor carpet around the perimeter of the room, or stir on the floor very large carpets. They increase the visual area of ​​the room, especially if they are small patterns or are monochromatic. Carpets small size put around the table, a sofa or chairs. Their task - to visually divide the room into several zones.

Avoid placement in the same room several small mats, or tracks, especially if they vary in color and style. Bright multi-colored carpets look good in a room with solid walls.

If your room is long and narrow and you want to visually divided into two parts, you can put two of the carpet in different groups of furniture. The same effect can be achieved by putting carpeting in the room of two or more colors, but, again, with plain walls.

If you have a carpet that covers the entire area, or almost the whole room, the wall, use one of the main colors of the carpet, but a lighter shade.

Now for the location of the paintings. Hang a picture should be at eye level or slightly below. Oil paintings and large format on canvas usually hung a little higher and with a slope.

Surely with a homey feel, a cup of tea or a glass of good wine, many associated fireplace. Tales of Hans Christian Andersen and the legend of Santa Claus made an integral part of the cozy fireplace at home. So why not move a fantastic atmosphere in your apartment in the city?

He also will warm you on cold winter evenings and bring a touch of romance and coziness in your home.
