Room of the Week

What is itRoom of the Week.  What is it?
In my search for creative living room ideas for apartments this week I came across this…uh, what is it exactly living room. The website I found it on gives no info whatsoever.  On further study it does look pretty comfy, if those steps are a bit soft and plush. It’s basically a stepped floor loaded with pillows. The wall back board seems cushiony as well. The discs provide hard surfaces for drinks or food. All in all, a cool creative living space for three or four people to chat or take in a short film.  Apartmentstolike.com

White + Black

white plus black decor 1And so begins a new year… Featuring today, on this snow in PA second day of 2014 white plus black decor options for your apartment. There are no two color choices that give direct contrast, a contrast so profound and crisp, as white and black. Love a mostly white room, highlighted with black decor, like the table above and the patterned pillows. Curious about the type written words on mirror (have to look into that!).  Image via 55 Downing Street

Tips on Landlord associations for all landlords.

Landlords Scoop

Retro Living, Vintage style

Retro design is a nice, clean new/old look that can add freshness and interest to your new living space.  I must say, it only works for me if the room is done completely in this style. So when considering making the room vintage, look for a theme, like the 70s for example, and stick with decorating items in that style era.  It can be fun.

Retro kitchen sets are pretty easy to come by online. Many companies make new sets in this classic style.

Made in America

I’m on a search for new furniture…and I’d like to go with American made is I can. It seems a daunting undertaking since most of our every day products are imported, and furniture is no exception. Most of it is made in China, with a few stray pieces I’ve come across that were made in Mexico. At least we are on the same continent there.  But now I’ve come across a luxurious furniture design company that displays as their key feature the symbol of made in America.

Furniture by Lee, or Lee Industries, offers innovative designs with great Earth-Friendly upholstery options in styles that will surprise for all rooms of your new home or apartment. And best of all, as they boast, all pieces are made in America! This company was featured on ABC News with Diane Sawyer in the Made in America series last month. I certainly love the pieces they produce.

I will continue my search for more furniture and home design and decorating options. If you know of any great companies to feature let me know.  I would certainly love to put them on my list. As it is, I cannot find a coffee pot that’s make in the US, and from what I watched on the ABC new special, they couldn’t find one either.
