Layering Curtains is an art that not many people subscribe to these days. There was a time that layering curtains was the standard to Window Treatments, but it seems as though we've moved away from that. All that said layering curtains is easy and affordable, neutral colors and earth tones are best for most applications but if you desire bold colors their are many options available at affordable prices. One of the best places to purchase your Curtains on-line is at America's online curtain superstore, Swags Galore. Swags Galore has 1000's of curtains and valances at big discounts to help with your decorating needs, go to http://www.swagsgalore.com/ for the best deals on Window Treatments.

Post image for Terrarium-Making Tips And Workshop At Terrain

Last week, FP Jana and I ventured out to Terrain at Styers for a terrarium-making workshop. Terrain always has all the best materials necessary for making terrariums (and they also have pre-made terrariums) – but what was awesome about this workshop was that we actually got to construct our terrariums at Terrain.

Post image for Creating A Relaxation Space In Your Home

I’ve always dreamed of having a room in my home where the floor is covered in a sea of pillows and blankets, and nothing else. While a room like that is out of the question in my current one-room apartment, I still think it’s important to create a space that’s dedicated to relaxation. This kind of environment is calming for the soul, and it also promotes creativity. Read more »

I use to have a space with pillows, blankets, and stuffed animals on the floor. I loved to read there. However, I found out soon after that this attracts spiders lie crazy, so needless to say I don't have that space anymore.

Post image for The Little Details Inside My Home, From Our Fashion Writer

I live in a small row home in Fishtown, Philadelphia. It’s old and I like that. A trickle of sunshine seeps through on a sunny day… that’s when my home feels the most magical — and at night when then sun is going down and I get to light my favorite candles. Inside my home is quite simple. I moved here from the UK with one suitcase of clothes, so I’ve been gradually collecting things over the years that mean a lot to me and tell a story. Read more »

Our Native culture is not a TREND!! Educate yourselves. Thanks to those who've stepped up and said, "this is not okay." because it is not. Start by reading my books, articles and website. Knowledge is not hard to get a hold of.

Post image for Creating A Desirable Shower Space

Have you ever taken a shower in a beautiful hotel or resort and felt more refreshed and relaxed than you ever thought possible? I remember feeling that way after staying in Costa Rica last year. Although the shower was indoors, I felt like I had just showered in nature, and it was a beautiful thing. Nature has the ability to bring us back to our roots, making us feel calmer, more relaxed, and grounded. Read more »

I have my kitty litter box in the shower stall with a few sprigs of eucalyptus which completely- and I mean Completely- removes any odor.
Johnny Shi -Mar 06, 2015, 7:28PM
Wow, it already looks relaxing. I love the idea of the eucalyptus because it looks good and feels good. When you look good and feel good you know the day is going to be good. Thanks for your wonderful idea! http://www.swankdecorgiftsandmore.com/listing.asp?dept_id=10010&nopopup=1

Post image for A Dark Rose Jewelry Display

It used to be that I kept all of my jewelry in one spot in my bedroom. All my necklaces and bracelets were hung on a little white jewelry stand, and my rings were in a silver dish next to them. But in recent months I’ve begun to display my jewelry throughout my house, incorporating it into my décor. I think this breathes new life into the jewelry, and it always makes me feel like I’m living a story every time I take a piece off or put one on. Read more »

Post image for The Houseplant You’ll Never Kill

I’ve always been a houseplant lover. I love the energy they bring into a home and how a plant-filled room has the ability to make you forget you’re even inside. The only problem I have with houseplants is that I physically cannot keep them alive. Even the ones that are supposed to be un-killable, like aloe. I killed an aloe plant, and it makes me sad to think about it. Read more »

PHILODENDRONS ARE POISONOUS TO CATS! Do not keep as a houseplant with kitties in the house!
Becky -Apr 03, 2015, 8:04AM
Philodendrons also thrive under fluorescent lights, so they're good for the office. I can return to work on Monday and see how it's grown toward the light. I think they also help improve air quality. It's the one plant I don't kill!
