Redo yourhome decor with bright, bold shades

It’s time to brighten up the interiors of your home and go for trendy wall colours like lime, orange, purples, pink and sky blue.

Many wouldn’t approve it, but bright colours can be stressbuster and also create a positive environment.

Leading decor store, Home by Nilkamal Limited, offers easy tips to change the look of your sweet home.

They suggest that give a new look to the wooden knick-knacks by painting the background or the side walls in orange  or blue. Put summery cotton and linen bedsheets in bright colours, floral and geometric prints.

Those who love brightness around them, can also put glass vases, planters and other accessories in rustic ceramics in bright shades.

If not too keen to have bright walls, hang a series of bright and vibrant pictures or paintings down a dark hallway.

Accessorise your bathroom with pinks, orange and lemon. For a fresh feel place some aqua or lavender potpourri in your bath area.

To add natural touch, decorate with fresh flowers and plants. Kitchens too can have green planters to bring the soothing effect.

Also, you can use wooden accessories to give it a natural look.

FESTIVAL CLEANING TIPS

House Cleaning .

Easy to do Tips in 60 seconds flat

Clean a Mirror

You don’t have to buy glass cleaners and paper towels to clean your mirrors.  Just some vinegar and an old newspaper is all you need to keep your mirrors shining as new. Your house will look cleaner if the mirrors are clean.

Rinse Your Plate

Cleaning plates is a tuff thing if its kept for some time un cleaned. I rinse my plate after dinner and have all my family members do the same and it makes washing plates so easy. It is a small and simple habit but makes a lot of trouble easier. I don’t like trying to wash dried food off of dishes, do you?

Cleaning the Oven

Does your oven get used every day?  Someday if you’re not using your oven, give it a quick spray of oven cleaner and keep it like that till the next day. Before you turn on your oven the next day, give it a quick wipe down. The baked on stuff comes off much easier than ever.

Cleaning the Microwave

Cleaning a microwave is easy. Fill up a cup of water and put it in there on high for a few minutes. The steam from the cup will loosen any stuck-on food, and then you can just wipe it away. It’s that simple.

Cleaning the Fridge

A fridge looks big and cleaning it looks even bigger. Follow my steps and the work will be a bit easier. First toss out any bad food. Then start with wiping down the top shelves and work down. Baking soda and water make a great cleaner and won’t leave your fridge smelling like

harsh cleanser. After you wipe out the crispers, line them with paper towels for easier cleaning next time. Cleaning the fridge was never this easy.

Cleaning your Bathroom

You can use lemon oil to shine the tiles of your bathroom. Lemon oil will also prevent mold and mildew. Use a false teeth bubbling tablet to avoid rings. Sometimes the problem with shower is that hard water gets build up there. Fill a plastic bag with vinegar and place it over shower head to remove hard water buildup. You can use alcohol to  shine bathroom faucets.

Toilet Hygiene

One of the most hated things to do but fortuitously, it can be done very fast if you follow the way I do, few steps to follow to get it done quickly. First pour some cleaner in the bowl to soak. Then wipe down the seat and outside of the bowl with an antibacterial wipe or spray cleaner. After that scrub the bowl with a toilet brush and finally wipe down everything again with a dry cloth to make it shine.

Bathtubs can be cleaned too EASILY

To clean bathtubs here are a few things that may help:

Use a cleanser that will foam or bubble. This allows you to “soak” your tub or shower,

even if it’s a vertical wall. Get a scrubber that fits your needs, a long-handled one or

an extra firm one, pick a scrubber that will be easiest for you to use.Moreover, spraying the tub or shower down after each use can make deep cleaning easier.

Carpet Sweeping

If you have a carpet sweeper or a cordless hand vacuum handy then your job gets easier. This way you don’t need to drag the big vacuum out every time your floor needs a quick clean-up.

I am sure these easy to use tips will help you keep your house clean and beautiful.

Wall Wonders

I’ve got these big blank walls in my house. Still.

It’s sad, really. I know I should be brave but I’m scared of hanging the wrong thing. Big…I need big, expensive, beautiful artwork – at least that’s what I keep telling myself.

“I’m so boring!”  the walls seem to scream at me.

Okay, walls. You win. I will fix your blankness. But first, I need inspiration!

Wow, I feel so much better! I love all these ideas and I really LOVE that I don’t need to run out and buy huge pieces of artwork. This curated, collaged look is much more interesting! How cute are those little plates floating up from that vintage stove?

Oh and it’s not out yet, but I’ve added this book to my Amazon wish-list!

Are your walls blank too? I hope this gave you some ideas! If you love it, hang it up! A card, a poster, a gorgeous tag, a beautiful image from your favorite magazine…whatever. Your walls can be your very own composition! Your very own gallery! Have fun with it!

I’m going to be working on my blank walls and I will share my “installations” once they are up!

Have an inspired Thursday!
