Favorite room of the week!


Designed by Italian design firm Studio Peregalli, this gorgeous kitchen exudes rustic chic design at its finest. The beautiful custom French oak wood paneling and cabinets, reminiscence of the 18th century and antique oak flooring conjure a sense of warmth and coziness. The lovely robin's egg blue inside the cabinets provides a wonderful contrast to the oak cabinets, accentuating the stunning details of wood paneling at the same time which I love. The eye-catching 18th-century Portuguese tile backsplash provides visual interest while the fireplace adds a sense of formality and elegance in the space. The charming dining area is definitely the cherry on top of this fabulous kitchen, don't you think? A French country kitchen with the charm and elegance of a bygone Parisian home, what's not to love? Needless to say, I am truly inspired by this timeless beauty, what about you? Any thoughts?

How to add some life to your windows!


This article is provided by Cyril.

Imagine what a house without windows would be like? Well, it would be nothing more than a dark box without any light or air. Windows are important because they provide ventilation to your home. They also add a spark in the beauty of the home nowadays as there are different types of designs available for them. A well-designed window adds some glamour and beauty to your house but you could up the ante a bit more by choosing the right curtain for your windows.

Curtains add glamour to the windows

A curtain can be of many types; generally it is a piece of cloth that is used to cover doors and windows to block the view or obscure light. Curtains often come in various colors and with different types of designs like vintage floral curtains, solid color curtains etc and they really are an essential part of the home decor. They not only add beauty but also provide comfort by blocking extra light and sunrays. Colorful and stylish curtains have always been held in high regard. They were meant to flaunt the taste of the home owner. Curtains always added extra beauty and glamour to a home and over the years, that role has not changed.

Old is the new trend

Trends keep changing regularly and trends of today become obsolete tomorrow. But with wide range of designs in the category of vintage floral curtains, you would definitely agree that old can sometimes make a comeback and become a classic. It takes the beauty of your house to a new level. In addition to the curtains, in order to decorate your house completely you would also need proper furniture, a trendy wall-clock and other knick knacks, but not to worry, thanks to the internet, you can have all your decor items delivered to your doorstep in no time. Most of these websites even have very attractive return and refund policies, so even if a piece of furniture looks out of place, you can always have it replaced.

Some tips for better decoration

The most important thing about decoration is synchronicity, even if you are opting for contrast, there needs to be a method to it so choose a few pieces of decor as your focal point and decorate around it. If everything in a room is eye-catching, then the room will be chaotic. A simple design tip is getting a few attractive pieces and making sure the rest is subtle and neutral.

Highendcurtain is a good choice if you are interested in more vintage floral curtains or other unique curtains.
