Since the bed is generally the focal point of the room, you want to select the type of Indian themed bedding you want first. Choose a bold, bright color or rich jewel tones. Our Hand Painted 7-Piece Deluxe Bedding Set is available in a variety of colors to help you create a completely unique space.

Once you have your bedding set chosen, you can put together the other pieces of the room.

2. Swaths Of Fabric

Gorgeous Indian Fabric

You can easily add richness and dimension to your bedroom with simple swaths of fabric that hang from the ceiling, from the walls or even from your bed itself. Try securing the ends of several sections of chiffon fabric to a lighting fixture in the center of your ceiling. Bring out the ends in every direction and secure to the edge of the ceiling where it meets the wall.

3. Low, Romantic Lighting

Arabian Inspired Bedding

Make the room feel serene and romantic by nixing bright overhead lights and replacing them with low lighting from decorative lamps. Lampshades covered with exotic fabric are perfect for this look! Place your lamps on a nightstand or a table with either a gorgeous Hand Embroidered 5-Piece Night Table Placemat set or an Indian themed table runner to take the look to the next level.

4. Ornate Mirrors

Ornate, gilded mirrors are a popular trend in Indian themed bedrooms and although they can sometimes be difficult to find, they are well worth the investment of time and money. A beautifully designed mirror can easily become the visual center of the room, and can make a small room look larger and more inviting.

5. Floor Decor

Bring the Indian look full circle by adorning the floor with a brightly colored, woven rug complete with pillows for a fun and fresh sitting area. Make your sitting area more comfortable to use by adding a low table with a few books, a place for drinks and an Indian inspired tissue box cover.

Feel free to enhance your Indian themed bedroom with walls in rich, bold colors and Indian inspired art and bedroom accessories.

No remodeling needed – these five simple steps will help you create the bedroom you’ve always dreamed about in no time!

5 Unique Dinner Party Table Decorations That Will “WOW” Your Guests

You’re hosting a dinner party and want your table to look fantastic – but where do you start? Here are five fun & fresh unique dinner party table decorations what will “wow” your guests and make your dinner party a big hit.

1. Simple & Fresh Green Orchids

Flowers and glassware have been done to death, but they make such a beautiful impact and are easy to do. Cut the stems off your favorite flowers and arrange the florals to your liking inside clear glassware. You can mix up your look by stacking glassware on top of each other, or finding uniquely shaped glassware at flea markets or swap meets. Pair this gorgeous green-orchid look with our golden jade green exotic oriental table runner.

2. Peacock Feathers & Florals

 

Give your dinner party table decorations a tropical and elegant look with our shimmering ornamental embroidered tablecloth in ocean blue. Fill a vase with an array of tropical flowers, and insert a few short peacock feathers to take “tropical” to the next level.

3. Ombre Themed Florals

 

Make the most of strictly floral dinner party table decorations by incorporating the trendy ombre theme. Although you can use any color your imagination can think up, this soft pink ombre rose centerpiece is perfect for an intimate dinner gathering and works well with our Hand Painted Deluxe table runner in cotton candy.

 4. Tuxedo Chic

 

Black isn’t just for Halloween. Use a black and white theme for your next formal dinner party for a modern and chic look. Our mystic crystal Hand Painted Table Runner will beautifully offset simple painted black vases and crisp, white florals.

 5. Guilded Sophistication

 

Gold is a great color for formal dinner party table decorations, and is of course the perfect color for an Oscar or awards season party! Capture the sophisticated look shown here by simply using gold spray paint on craft branches, and placing them in a vase on top of our Hawthorn Leaf table runner in dark gold.

Remember to use your imagination when brainstorming dinner party table decorations, and ultimately go with the look that best fits the occasion of your party.

4. Royal Violet & Lilacs

Adorn your spring table with the rich, vibrant purple placemat set and top with various sizes of lilacs or other purple flowers.

4 Luxury Home Decor Trends That Are Hot Right Now

You don’t have to live in a mansion to have luxury home decor. In fact, there are many luxury home decor options that are not only affordable, but also work with your current decor theme! Here are 4 trends that are super hot right now!

1. Indian Home Decor

Indian and eastern style decor themes are becoming more and more popular. Colors include majestic deep purple hues and glittering golds. Whimsical embroidered or hand painted throw pillow covers crafted from thick, dupion silk make an excellent statement on your sofas, while hand beaded tablecloths and table runners bring an eastern feel to your dining area.

2. Splashes Of Bright, Bold Color

Bold color works great if you have a minimalist design, however, you can still work bold color choices into your home decor even if you aren’t going uber minimalist. Try incorporating a dazzling gold or vibrant red bedding set in your bedroom for a color boost, or painting a piece of furniture a robin’s egg blue or daffodil yellow.

3. Paper Lanterns

While paper lanterns may seem chintzy, they can be very luxurious feeling when properly worked into a decor scheme. Paper lanterns are great for a minimalist design, but can also be worked into a scheme that involves soft lighting and pastel colors, such as in a girl’s room or a relaxing den.

4. Bold Stripe Wallpaper

Add a punch of color to your home with a bold, striped wallpaper. You can find this type of wallpaper in a variety of color schemes, or if you have a ruler and a very steady hand, you can paint the stripes yourself, although this can be labor intensive. If you do decide to paint the stripes yourself, alternate between complementing colors and thick and thin lines.

Almost any home decor trend can be made to feel luxurious if you are creative with where you put it and how you use it. You don’t necessarily have to change your entire home to give it a luxurious feel – instead, just add a few key pieces here and there and enjoy how different your surroundings look and feel!

3 Interior Design Ideas for Spacious Dining Rooms

Unique Decorating Ideas for Spacious Dining Rooms

Interior design for a spacious dining room can seem like an insurmountable challenge. How do you fill up so much space? How do you make it seem cozy, instead of cold and uninviting? Here are three easy ways to get your spacious dining room looking guest-ready.

1. Warm Lighting

Warm lighting is one of the best interior design ideas to give a spacious area an inviting look. Spacious areas, especially dining rooms, tend to look expansive and bare if they’re left in the dark or very dim lighting. Transform your dining room into a place people want to gather by investing in some great lighting. Recessed lighting is great if you can afford a remodel, but if not, adding a few floor lamps or wall sconces can make all the difference in brightening up the space.

2. Focus On The Table

The dining room table is the focus of the dining room, so you want to make sure that stays clean and well decorated. Don’t come in the house and throw whatever you’re carrying on the table, because soon it will become the “catch all” place instead of a place to actually dine and eat with friends and family. Instead, drape a decorative tablecloth in a coordinating color over the table along with placemats, and keep place settings at each seat. Finish with a centerpiece and you’ve got somewhere for guests’ attention to go instead of any empty space in the room you may have.

3. Consider Dividing The Space

If you have a really big dining room, you may want to consider dividing the space. Perhaps you can turn one corner of the dining room into a reading nook with a chaise lounge and a bookshelf or a desk and place the dining table on the other side of the room instead of in the center. Get creative with how to use the space in your dining room, because it doesn’t all have to be for dining!

Having a spacious dining room doesn’t have to be an interior design nightmare when you utilize the space well and make sure you have a focal point – like the dining room table – for your guests.

4 Simple Party Decorations That Have An Impact

Party Decoration Ideas that Have an Impact

Party decorations can either be really over the top (and really expensive), or they can be affordable yet still have an impact on the party itself. Most people who are throwing a party want party decorations that will leave their guests with an impression, but don’t cost an arm and a leg. Here are four simple party decorations that will help pull your shindig together.

1. Banners Or Garlands

Deck the walls and the ceiling with banners or garlands to immediately set the stage for a party. Whether you’re having a birthday party, a wedding or baby shower or a holiday party, a coordinating banner or garland will define the space for the party and create the mood.

2. Coordinating Tablescapes

Almost all parties have food involved. At casual parties, the food usually goes on display on a table somewhere easily accessible so guests can mingle and sample the far. At formal parties, the dinner is usually served at a traditional dining table setting. Either way, party decorations that include coordinating tablescapes will make a huge impact on the look and feel of your party. Choose a high quality tablecloth and set the table with coordinating tableware. Use the color scheme of your party when creating your tablescape to keep your party looking polished.

3. Chair Decorations

If you’re hosting a formal party, a chair cover is in order, but if you’re going casual, a simple ribbon or well placed, small flower bouquet will also work. Use your imagination and get creative with things that you can tie to the chairs at your party to coordinate with your tablescape.

4. Balloons

Unless you’re having a very sophisticated and formal party, balloons can be a fun and colorful addition to your party decorations. Tie several balloons together and place each “balloon bouquet” at a strategic place in the party area to add the finishing touch to your party.

While it’s easy to let party planning get overwhelming, if you keep the party decorations simple and affordable, you can still make an impact on your guests without adding additional stress or cost.
