Interior Decoration Made Simple For Holidays

Interior Decoration Made Simple For Holidays

When giving someone a gift on their birthday, an anniversary, Christmas, or on another special, event, we seem to put as much thought and effort into the packaging and presentation as we do the gift itself. Most gift-shops and department stores offer gift-wrapping services, with fancy boxes, tissue paper, colourful and curly ribbons, and perfectly wrapped paper among the choices of ways to enhance the aesthetic of that gift. So why is it that we go that step further, and accoutre perfume-filled boxes or sock packets in masses of material that will inevitably end up in the bin with half-eaten pieces of birthday cake? It’s the same question we can put to the ways we decorate our homes during special celebrations. We adorn our house’s facade with lights for neighbours to admire, put up variegated Christmas trees, finally lay out that special tablecloth and blow the dust of our best crockery. Most of decorate our homes at times of celebration;  whether it be hosting a family member’s birthday party, a traditional wedding ceremony, Chinese New Year, during the Christmas period, the celebration of a new birth – there is just about something going on somewhere at any given moment! We go to this effort because most of us want the location in which we, our friends and family come together to celebrate to reflect the mood. With people laughing, music blasting, and piles of food, bottles of wine diminishing, and customs taking place, it would seem completely inappropriate to be situated in a drab, bare house. Being in the midst of Hannukah, and with things like Christmas and New...

The first, and most popular, interior garden design elements are mini indoor plants. Not only are these cute, and work well in numbers, but they are also relatively easy to maintain. You can put mini indoor plants just about anywhere in your house or office – from your bathroom, kitchen or bedroom, to your office desk or balcony: they bestow a hint of nature and the outdoors to any inside area. Mini plants are easy to acquire; they can usually be purchased from your local florist, hardware shop or sometimes, grocery or fruit and vegetables stores. It is also possible – though not as simple a process – to plant them yourself (this would be a great option for gardening aficionados). 2. Add dynamics to a bookshelf or square wall shelving in your office or study space with mini pot plants. For example, in square shelving units, break up spaces dense with books or paperwork by separating them with squares or shelves containing only a plant, or a plant positioned...
