Home Is Where the Heart Is: How to Choose Furniture for your Home
Home Is Where the Heart Is: How to Choose Furniture for your Home

Choosing furniture for you home—whether you’re starting from scratch with your first home, adding pieces to what you already have, remodeling a room, or down-sizing—is an adventurous proposition. A quest.

So, here’s one sure-fire tip that’s guaranteed to set you on the right track to creating the comfort and look that makes you feel “at home” when you walk through your front door: Build your room, each room in your home, around pieces you genuinely love.

How to Create a Bedroom Oasis
How to Create a Bedroom Oasis

Sleep researchers tell us that the average adult needs seven to eight hours sleep each night to stay healthy. Experts tout the value of exercise, power naps, and eliminating (or at least, reducing!) caffeine intake. “Take a warm bath,” they say. “Sip a cup tea. Eat light at night. Practice yoga. Infuse your bedroom with essential oils.” If we did all these things every night—productive as they are—we’d never have the time to sleep the seven to eight hours they recommend!

Here’s a few great ideas for a good night’s sleep from the sleep experts at Walker Furniture you can easily initiate in a couple of hours on a weekend afternoon that can turn your bedroom into the haven of your dreams.

Although Las Vegas continues to enjoy warm temperatures in the Fall, the weather cools just enough to suggest the change of seasons, to call up the burnished golds and oranges in Nature’s color wheel, the peppery tang of burning leaves, and the taste of cinnamon-laced pumpkin pie.

Traditionally, Fall colors consist of burnt oranges, deep maroons, and variations of gold, bronze and brown. “Autumn Maple” (orange with a brown undertone) and “Toast” (You get the picture!) are hot color trendsthis year. Both bring a sense of warmth and a trendy sophistication to any room.

Whether it’s from literally giving birth, to you to raising you, to fixing meals and sewing for clothes for you and providing you a home or taking care of you emotionally, that’s a lot of work. Day in day out, for their entire lifetime. Moms can’t help it. Moms are moms. And they work darned hard, often in the background making things work in ways you don’t even notice. They lay the groundwork for your early life, and your early life is the groundwork for your entire life. This is not even remotely an exaggeration.

Farmhouse Style When You Don’t Live on a Farm

Farmhouse style oozes warmth, charm, and simplicity. It is not about the color eggshell blue, frilly doilies, and roosters. The style is most connected with Chip & Joanna Gaines from the popular show TV show Fixer Upper. The show has ended, but the love for this style is as hot as ever.

Here’s how to create it in your own space, and YES it works even in Las Vegas.
