Bedroom July 10, 2017. The floating nightstand definitely cuts back on the amount of space you need to spare for the nightstand. But maybe you want something more on the ground and yet equally efficient! The small, round bedside table is for those who really do not need the nightstand for anything other than holding their smartphone, glasses and a sleek table lamp. It might not really offer any storage, but the small bedside table can be easily moved around when not being used without any hassle.
Living Room July 10, 2017. Looking beyond functionality and focusing on aesthetics, we start off our journey by delving into a world of sofas with a distinct red hue. The many shades of red and the finish of the sofa allow the bold and conspicuous red couch to be a part of many different living rooms. A dashing sofa in wine red and clad in leather looks as much at home in modern and eclectic living rooms as it does in traditional living spaces. Modern couches in lither tones of red, pastel pink and even burnt orange are increasingly becoming part of smart homes where neutral backdrops demand a splash of uplifting brightness.
Interior September 03, 2017. We are creatures of habit and are often set in our ways so much that even a slight tweak to monotony is met with disdain and disinterest.

To celebrate their versatility and uniqueness, here is a look at 15 chic finds that are functional, stylish and usher in a level of decorating ease that conventional furniture lacks.

But those craving for snazzier and more dazzling shades of blue might want to think twice before they bring home a sofa in cobalt or peacock blue! It is not so much about whether they look good on the catalog page as it is about how much you really like the particular shade and tint of blue. If it is just a passing fascination, then you might have to splurge on a brand new sofa just a few seasons down the line!

If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option.

With homeowners increasingly veering towards bathrooms that have a spa-inspired look, the seemingly inconspicuous stack of towels can add a pop of color to the neutral backdrop or enhance the impact of the accent hue.
