While looking for some things a friend of mine asked me for, I found these posts omn the next two items I want to share with you. The first is how to accent your room with the perfect area rug, and the second talks about ideal patio furniture and Decor.. There are a few other things ..

Enjoy the pics and post.. 

Picking the perfect area rug...

Believe it or not, flooring is one of the most important features when decorating a room. The floor is a major focal point and it sets the tone as to whether or not the room’s overall appearance will be chic or shabby. That is why the rug that you choose for a room is crucial. Matching the appropriate rug with the theme of the room it is in will tie everything together and complete the look that you want.

Understanding the Different Types of Rugs

When you are shopping for a new rug, it helps to have a basic knowledge of the different types, sizes, and shapes that you will encounter. Some of the most popular types of rugs include Oriental rugs, rag rugs, hooking rugs, and braided rugs. These often come as either area rugs or runners. Area rugs come in all shapes and sizes and are fit just as their name suggests, in the area of a room. A runner is a long, rectangular rug and typically fits down the length of a hallway.

Rug Fabrics

There are several types of fabrics of rugs and some are sturdier than others. Every rug that you see will either be handmade or machine made. You can expect handmade rugs to be durable and be made with natural fibers such as cotton or wool. Machine made rugs are often made with synthetic fibers, and while the quality isn’t as good, they are often less expensive than their counterparts. When you understand the options you can decide which type of rug you need to buy

When to Use an Area Rug 


Area rugs work great in any room with a lot of space. A large, square area rug works well if you have an open hardwood floor without anything on it. Try to pick a rug that is large enough so that all the furniture can fit on top of it.

If you have a smaller space that needs an accent, a circular area rug might be a good choice. Braided rugs are very popular in the circular style.

Finally, if you are looking to fill a void or bring a touch of coziness to a long hallway, a runner will do the trick. Just be sure to find one that fits the length of the entire hallway. Runners also work well in rooms as a complement to a larger rug or in a small, rectangular space.

Once you understand the type of rug you want to buy, you are ready to shop! To find the best rug for your intended space, you want something that will complement the furniture and walls rather than overpower them. Matching the accent colors is very important when it comes to this. It may be helpful to even bring paint chips or your throw pillows with you when you shop, so you can be sure to get a rug that will work nicely in your room. If the color is off even a little bit, it can distract from the look you are trying to convey.

If you are looking for a new rug and aren’t quite sure where to begin your search, check out iCustomRug. They have a large variety of rugs in all shapes, sizes, and colors, giving you the best chance of finding something that will complement any room in your house.

If you’re looking for stylish sofa sets to transform your garden into a comfortable and luxurious outdoor space, a contemporary rattan furniture range will be the best one to choose.

Modern outdoor sofa sets, especially those belonging to contemporary rattan furniture ranges, are no longer made from fragile materials that simply don’t last outdoors.

Those outdoor sofa sets combine contemporary design and style with real functionality, which more than meet the demands that can be placed on them in a typical home.

Outdoor sofa sets are very often the main feature of luxury garden furniture ranges, particularly those that are made from PU rattan. Today’s outdoor sofa sets are just as spacious and luxurious as the ones that are intended for indoor use, and can range from indulgent corner sofas and coffee tables through to more functional small sofa sets that are perfect for entertaining outdoors. With designs that feature clean, minimalistic lines and warm colors that work well in a variety of outdoor (and even indoor!) settings, the outdoor sofa sets that are available in a contemporary rattan furniture range are equally as perfect when placed in landscaped gardens as they are in more modern, decking areas or even roof terraces and patios.
 
In addition to the aesthetic appeal offered by these contemporary rattan furniture ranges, outdoor sofa sets that are made from PU rattan are so easy to care for. No longer will you have to spend hours varnishing and sealing your outdoor furniture before you can use it. By choosing a sofa set from the right range of furniture you can begin to enjoy its comfort as soon as you received it. All you have to do is find the perfect spot for it in your garden or patio area. And once you’ve placed it there, you won’t have to worry about moving it indoors as soon as it starts to rain, or if the heat gets intense. The outdoor sofa sets are completely weather proof, and aside from covering it if the weather gets too bad you won’t need to do anything else to protect it.

Overall, a modern garden sofa set will set your garden apart and make it the ultimate in style and relaxing living.

Transparent TV Screens For Your Living Room




The television industry has undergone a lot of changes in recent years, and TV’s are becoming more advanced than ever before. Many consumers have purchased big-screen televisions and receipt years as prices have gone down substantially. Television manufacturers are looking for new ways to boost sales and keep people coming back for more. Sometimes this includes partnerships between prominent gadget manufacturers and bank lenders with the best credit cards. Other times it requires innovations that border on gimmicks. One of the new technologies that has made a splash in recent months is the transparent LCD television. What exactly is this type of TV, and should you buy one for your living room?


What is a Transparent TV?

This type of television is a device that you can see through. When it’s sitting there, it basically looks like a piece of glass going up from a base. When the TV is off, you can see right through the middle of it as if you were looking through a window. Then when the TV powers on, the image appears on the screen, and it looks just like a regular TV screen. The glass has lighting built in that lights the screen when you turn it on.

How They Can Be Used


Many people are buying transparent televisions as a way to create a focal point in a room. Having a transparent television can be a good conversation starter, and help create something interesting in the room that gets people’s attention.

Some television manufacturers are actually working on a transparent TV that doubles as a window. You have the television installed just like a window, and you can see out of it when you want. The sunlight works to provide the back light for the TV. When you’re watching television at night, the TV has built-in lights that provide lighting. This provides you with a more energy-efficient television, and something that is really interesting for your home.

Other Uses

The window TV can also double as a computer monitor, and connect to the Internet. This way, you can check in on social networks, shop, read personal finance articles, and play music. The TV also works like blinds so that you can block out the light coming in the window if you want.

Whether you think transparent televisions are cool or tacky, they are definitely something that will become more common in the future. The decision to buy one will be up to you and your personal budget, but you have to admit that the idea is unlike anything else out there.

    In Iran the Persian term used for patio is hayat khalvat which translates to 'a small quiet and private yard,' and is usually a courtyard within the dwelling or walled within the property, for women's privacy without hijab.
    Other than a general preference for hardscape designs, there are added benefits of choosing stone over wood:
    1. More durable and generally last longer
    2. Withstand all sorts of weather conditions
    3. Require little-to-no maintenance
