Wall Art and Sports – Kick, Throw, Hit- on your Wall™

Image
The connection between wall art and sports is so strong that everyone would have had it in their rooms while they were young. It is a way to display the love one has for their favorite sports stars and teams. The various colour posters that are stuck on the wall and all over the room are a way of us showing off who we love or who we look upto. The wall art and sports link is so deep that it goes back to earlier centuries. Also it has become a fashion to have a wall art and sports related item or object in one’s house or room. There are different phases we go through in life and every time something new happens, our personality goes through a metamorphosis. This might also include a change in things we like, actors and sports players we start being crazy about.

Use Southwest Bedding To Revive Your Rustic Home Decor™

Image
There is no easier way to give your home great rustic style than through southwest bedding. A while back, I was looking for an inexpensive way to decorate one of the rooms in my home and give it a touch of the old west.

I found some western blankets at a discount linen store and decided to add them as part of the western decor. I liked the Native American look they created in the room so much that I decided to put them in all the rooms of my home to give them that chic, southwestern style you see in designer home magazines.

Because I used these throw blankets everyday as bedspreads, shawls, or as lap blankets, I became interested in the story behind southwestern blankets and began studying their origin. The more I researched, the more interesting the story was.

I never realized that although very popular today with interior decorators and in modern style homes, southwest bedding for use in western home decor actually began in the early 1900's, when American Indian trade blankets were…

Women's Winter Fashion™

Image
Come winter and we wonder what to get out of our wardrobe. Because we have to pull over a coat or a cardigan whatever we wear. So how do you get stylish with a coat on ? For one you can belt it with a contrasting colour and the colour of your trousers too can bring out some zing.

Dark earthy colours are the season's undertones with bright colours like orange and red that bring out the chirpiness. Do not be mellowed down with the dark weather. Bring out a knit muffler or stole to wrap around your neck.

Long slim tops reaching below the buttocks with variations in style too are in. You even get pullovers in that style to match with slim denims or leggings. Accessorize your ears and hands with metallic stuff. Metal bangles and kadas and earrings are working their way to the ramp. Don't forget that gargantuan bag. Yes it is still in and will be for some more time. Clutch bags are living great off the shelf when you need to make a softer statement.
