Jazz up your abode in a smart way

Darpan News Desk IANS, 12 Jan, 2015
  • Jazz up your abode in a smart way
It's chilly and gloomy outside, but you can make your house warm and cozy with a little bit of makeover.
 
Pooja Sharma, design head and director, Studio 13 Design Pvt. Ltd., shares how:
 
* Home fragrance: It can help to create a warm atmosphere. Try choosing woody aroma for diffusers. Scented candles can help in warming a room. Scented sticks in fragrances of cinnamon, rosewood and sandalwood are soothing and are the best inviting aromas.
 
* Twinkling lights: Try adding some strings light around a preferred corner of your house. 
 
* Proper use of rugs, blankets: Place all heavy rugs and blankets in living and bedrooms. Try covering a bare floor with a thick rug so as to make that space look warmer and comfortable.
 
* Dark tones: Swap all those pastel shades with darker tones, as bright and dark colours are full of warmth. For winters, pick fabrics such as velvet, cashmere, wool or faux with brighter shades, floral or strip prints, oversized geometric designs for rugs and cushions. Cosy up your couch with a plush throw or wrap the seat cushion with faux fur.
 
* Electric fireplace: Go for electric fireplace as it is easy to maintain and install.

Bathroom Remodel: Looking For Bargains Can Offset Expensive Taste
FORT COLLINS, Colo. — I've never visited the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, but I can pretend. That's because I have a stainless steel soaking tub in my master bathroom that's made by the same company that built the custom tub for the Four Seasons spa.
