Honeycomb

You may nevertheless want to regulate the amount of light here, and in this case, you should choose motorised blinds. You will be able to program them so they automatically close or open when the sun moves around to that point in the sky.

Let Me Paint You a Picture

Sometimes amateur interior designers get hung up on what sort of pictures to hang in their home. I even commissioned a few paintings in the past just so I could have an image that fitted in with the rest of my chosen colour scheme. These days, I've discovered the benefits of purchasing antique art to make my interior decorations really come alive. There is so much choice out there that it is sometimes hard to know where to start when choosing art for a home rather than a gallery. My blog takes you through the selection and buying processes with all of the adventures I've had over the years choosing antique artworks for my friends' homes as well as my own.
