The All-american Family
THE ALL-AMERICAN FAMILY
What the heck is that? Years ago you could identify an “All-American” family but the truth of the matter is in today’s mores, what was once honored may in fact get you and your spouse into big trouble. If I can just briefly recall, the exemplary family of twenty-five years ago had a mother and father and from 2 to 4 kids that basically knew what it meant to behave. Remember? Now they just didn’t grow up this way…no. Parents had to actually exert effort and example in order for the children to “turn out right.” There were, most definitely varying ways for parents to extrude this behavior. Some used the rod and some gave time-outs but both saw the value in discipline. Believe it or not, society actually helped in the process. I am not suggesting in any way that it “took a village” for this to happen but it did not detract from the process. It was not forbidden, as example for a parent to actually disallow their offspring from participating in events that they perceived as harmful whether that was a racy movie (my mother removed my sister from “To Russia With Love” by announcing to a packed theatre, “If [my sister’s name] is in this theatre she had better meet me out front, right now!”) or an event that put boys and girls in a compromising position…slow dancing! Well, I mean things were different as they are in every generation but how far can we go? When did morality become a joke? When did discipline become a bad word? When did slow dancing become intercourse and when did disrespect for parents lead to divorcing them? Has my generation become more concerned with being “like” our kids than being role models for them?
Many years ago when I was in my period of thinking my parents were idiots because they didn’t like the Beatles and insisted that I cut my shaggy hair I flew to a job interview and on the way back I sat next to a big, burly man, the kind that causes you to have a spinal realignment while trying to maintain your space in an airline seat. I was exhausted and looking forward to a nap but made the proper, but ill-advised gesture by introducing myself. Well, my name rang a bell in this gentleman’s mind. He was a bank investigator and new my father. As truth has it he was sent to investigate my father regarding a land development where my dad, as a Realtor® had been instrumental in putting together the land. Over the course of the flight he went into detail about his association with my father. For three days he sifted through the records regarding all transactions. He queried and poked and dug and supposed. After hours of inspection and interview he revealed nothing other than a realization that his organization owed my father much more than was on the books. Just as we were landing, this mountain of a man, with misty eyes shook my hand and remarked, “Your father is the most honest man I have ever met.”
I was not surprised. I knew my dad and through daily interaction had been taught and more importantly had mirrored the actions of an honest man. We were not buddies, my father and I yet we had a great relationship and a bond that affects me to this day, long after his life has passed.
Where did the All-American family go? Perhaps the family “evolved” with the demonizing of roles, position and place, the simple walls that divided parents from friends and respect from equality. Perhaps it frayed when moral leadership was attributed to God without an echoing giggle. Let me clarify, I am not using the term All-American in a racial sense. I am only stating that the fiber of America, the things that made us and to some extent still make us great are the things, the beliefs that make us Americans, people from a specific country. These fibers that wove a glorious tapestry across modern history allowed us to act on simple, clear beliefs, even to the point of death. It called us to sacrifice youth and family for ideals that made this growing culture different. It was birthed in the minds of feeble men. Because it was, wasn’t it divine intervention when noble men put all on the line in defense of freedom and all for the words, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..”
As these fibers, the Judeo-Christian beliefs of family structure and morality begin to be unwound our national fabric becomes tattered and the All-American family, the core of this great society is in danger of fading into history. And if this basic thread gone, can our nation be far behind?
Here are some useful tips to know before choosing curtains
Consider the style, size, and shape of the window, and what you want the curtains for. Think about the room, its proportions and what it’s used for, the upholstery, and accessories. Curtains can be hung from rods in a number of ways. Although most are functional rather than stylish, some decorative types are available. The right choice will not only enhance the window but also turn an ordinary room into a really special place.
Here are ten household helpful hints for choosing curtains:
Match curtain fabric with upholstery to unify space that seems untidy.
Use carpet to mark off space. A rug is ideal for establishing a social zone within a room.
Fabrics with classic patterns give a period feeling to the ambience of a room.
Remember that the bed linen, tablecloths, and towels also contribute to decoration.
Sheer curtain and gauze enable us to filter light.
Venetian blinds allow control over the amount of light entering a room.
Do not limit curtains and blinds to just windows. They can be used in an excessively long passage or hallway. Blinds make good screens.
In rooms with a lot of pictures, different colored walls, or furniture, it is suitable to use neutral tones for the curtains and upholstery.
Take advance of fabrics by using them to renovate your furniture.
Use rugs and tapestries as hanging on a wall. Their color and texture are unbeatable and they improve acoustics.
Accenting Drapes With Beads
You may have thought you would have never seen the day when beaded curtains would make a comeback buy guess what. They’re here and I’m going to show you exactly how to use them. The beaded curtain is not only a throwback from the groovy sixties, but now a viable home decoration.
There are actually quite a few ways that you can incorporate beading into your curtain design. You can have an entire curtain made from beads that hangs from the curtain rod all the way down to the floor in colorful strands. Don’t forget also to use them the way they did in the sixties and hang them in doorways as a room divider. This way you can section off a room, but not completely alienate it with a closed door.
You can actually create a sort of mosaic artwork with your beaded curtain, strategically placing the beads so that a design is apparent. This will give you a look of a finished tapestry design which will add a sense of artistic expression to your home, as well as a warmth. Speaking of adding warmth and texture to your home, a wooden beaded curtain will give your home that natural look, while signifying a rich atmosphere, much in the way heavy drapes do.
If you have a closet area that you’re not too proud to be showing off, but have no door there, beads are great for closing off areas such as this as well. This also is good for a smaller room where if you do have doors on the closets, it takes up more space than you care for when opened and closed.
The great part about beads is that they are very versatile. You don’t have to have a full beaded curtain to incorporate beads into your home. You can also sew the beads into the curtains to add a new zest to them. This will help accentuate already present colors by using contrasting colored beads, or you can just add a sense of attention using a sparkly or reflective bead.
If sewing just isn’t your thing, which it isn’t for a lot of people then you’ll be glad to know that you can simply purchase ready made curtains and use a good hot glue gun to add the beads. You’ll want to keep in mind however that this isn’t as professional looking, nor as strong when it comes to cleaning the curtains, but it does work for a quick fix.
One thing that you’ll want to be sure to think about is that if you have small children, and have beading on areas such as low hanging curtains, or furniture or throw pillows, you’ll want to be very careful of young ones who like to put things in their mouths. For this situation, I would definitely have someone sew the beads on tightly, and not use a hot glue gun. As well, check often to make sure that all beads are intact and not loose.

Accenting Curtains With A Window Valance
If you’re a person who loves to keep the window open so that you have the opportunity to gaze about as you wish, then you certainly don’t want to obstruct that view. For this person, a window valance is a perfect choice. You have a wide array of styles to choose from when finding that perfect valance. If you wish to have the view always, night and day, without interruption, you can use the valance alone, or else couple it with other window dressings such as curtains, drapes, blinds, shutters.
You can choose from both casual and formal window valances when conducting your interior design project. You can use a heavy tapestry type fabric or an airy light cotton type of material. If you like the free flowing look that’s less informal you can go that route, or else one that is more stiff and shaped to a form fit.
The balloon valance looks like…well, a balloon. The way it is hung on the rod and pinched into sections make each section balloon out because of the way it is bundle up. The top is usually ruffled a bit. The areas of the valance that are puffy are usually stuffed with a tissue or old crumpled newspaper for some thicker fabrics where it won’t show through. For this style it’s recommended to use a lighter weight cotton material as well as something solid or with patterns and stripes.
Another type of valance is the swag valance. The Swag Valance often is used with a lightweight fabric, but sometimes can work with a heavier type of fabric. This type of valance can either be short extend to the floor and pooled into a little pile. The swag is hoisted up by decorative brackets on either side, as the fabric is folded accordion style width ways, and then draped back across the brackets. If your window is wider you may have to support the center with a discreet bracket or pin because of the weight creating a swoop.
You may like the look of the pleated valance. This is usually made up of a heavier type of fabric that will hold it’s shaped when formed. The fabric must be cut carefully so that each section between the pleated folds is equal in size. You may not want to tackle this type of style on your own, as you may want to leave this one up to a professional interior decorator or seamstress with experience. This type of valance is hung using a frame make from two by four board as well as an L bracket to create a type of shelf at the top of the window. You’ll then staple the fabric the shaped board, and then hang the board onto the brackets.
No matter what your experience level, just about anyone can create a window valance. Be sure to remember that window treatments should not be the focal point of the room but simply there to accent.
Kenneth Morris usually publishes long articles on news related to curtains and interior design. You can come across his abstracts on window valance over at http://www.curtains-drapes-coverings.com .
Interior Design Style and Colour Use for the Home Office
There are two ways that you can go about selecting the general decor of your home office: either follow the style that prevails in the rest of your home, or treat your office as an individual space. Choosing which way to go is a simple task requiring answers to only a few questions.
> Has your home been decorated in one style that is visible throughout?
> Is your office easily visible from other rooms/areas of your home?
> Does your work suggest a style of its own?
Based on the questions above, here are a few simple ways to help you easily achieve a pleasing decor in your home office.
If you are going to treat your office as a part of your home, using the same decor and style, your job is already half done. But remember, you don’t have to use the exact colour scheme or mood. You can modify what you see outside your office to blend smoothly. For instance, you can reverse the main and accent colours; you can use the same colours but in different proportions; or a different level of formality. Because you are decorating an office, it is likely that you are going to want to treat the style differently than how it appears in other areas of your home, and this is normal. Don’t be afraid to create a variation in the atmosphere — it is only the general style you are aiming to respect.
For a home office that is open within an area of your home, you are going to have to be a little more cautious. In this case, you must respect the style seen around your office, but at the same time you should definitely aim to create a sense of separation between your work space and living space. Visual separation does not mean building a wall; it means creating a new environment within the existing one. Some ways of creating visual separation include changes in ceiling height and/or floor level (a step up or down); a room divider placed to look decorative rather than confining; colour changes such as reversing the main and accent paint colours used on the walls; and furniture placement.
Placing furniture in a way that the layout separates space is fairly simple, but don’t forget to play with your ideas on graph paper first or else you may find yourself still rearranging while you should already be at your desk. Consider using a large bookshelf or storage cabinet as a room divider — the back of it can be decorated with fabric, paint, a collage… or place furniture back-to-back to create the sense of two separate zones. Keep in mind while you are working on the layout that you don’t want to feel that your office is, for instance, in the back of your basement — it is at the back of the basement. Just as words can be played with, so can space.
A home office that is to receive a style of its own is a fun thing to work out. You should aim to have a bit of who you are visible in the decor, while creating a visual sense of what you do. This is not a cubicle in a large office complex — this is your office. If you have a love of bold patterns, classic cars, angels… incorporate them into the decor even if they have nothing to do with what you will be doing in your office. At the same time, your office should say more about whay you do that “I work at a desk.” What do you do at that desk? If you are in the computer business, have things around that suggest that, like an enlarged and framed comic strip that has something to do with computers. If your office is actually more of a workshop and you do clothing alterations, incorporate your supplies into your decor: display spools of thread in a rainbow-like pattern, hand a rod a few inches from a wall and drape some fabrics over it for an ever-changing backdrop. If you work in the travel industry, have a model plane suspended, and display items or pictures symbolic of some of your favorite destinations; if it won’t get in your way, have a beach ball in your office, or make a “sandbox” to hang on the wall by gluing sand to the back of a shadow box and gluing small shells onto the sand.
When choosing the colours for your office, there are a few basic points to consider. Yellows, reds, and other very warm colours in large quantities can cause you to feel thirsty. Blue is very relaxing, but be careful not to choose a bland grey-blue that can actually lead to feeling tired or restless. The best way to go about selecting the colours for your office is to choose three colours; use one as a main colour (for instance on the walls), another as the main accent colour (visible in a pattern on a rug, drapes, desk accessories…), and the third as an accent colour appearing only in splashes here and there (such as flowers in a vase, a couple of photo frames…). At this point your colour scheme is set, and all you have to do is keep in mind some basic points of colour psychology. A dark ceiling will feel very low; mirrors and reflective materials make a space feel larger; too many colours, especially bold ones, can cause a feeling of clutter even if there is none.
A final point on the topic of colour and style: materials such as woods, stone, and metal can be incorporated into any colour scheme — although they may affect the style, they will not clash. A natural pine desk will certainly give a different look than a mahogany one, but either will match any colour scheme; ditto for stainless steel and brass, and marble and concrete.

Have a Luxurious Home on a Tight Budget
Luxurious homes, inevitably, evoke one word from every aspirant of a luxurious home. And that is – ‘expensive’. Normally, luxury homes are viewed from the amount of money invested in furnishing these homes. We tend to believe that royalty of luxurious homes come from money. But, very conveniently, forget that some astute thinking and of course, little money can transform our homes into a royal castle. In fact, if we trace the journey of some of the luxury furniture, we can easily find out that the things that were commonplace in ancient homes have been rendered luxurious in the form of antiques. So, present day’s luxury is yesterday’s normalcy. So, why not try to make it a present day’s normalcy?
The first thing to take care of is to avoid buying fakes. If antiques are your choice to bring in luxury to your home, never settle for cheap furniture or look-alikes. For instance, an exclusive Amish made furniture could be your ideal choice but never get duped by unscrupulous dealers, who make a quick buck out of the ignorant buyers. Always opt for a reputed dealer of Amish furniture who provides adequate guarantees and warranties on your purchase. Similarly, if dealing with Antique furniture dealers, always choose the one who has a good reputation both online as well as offline.
The next thing to plan is the art works. While expensive paintings by renowned painters may be out of your budget range, you certainly need not lose heart. A beautiful oil painting or water-colored painting can be an impressive alternative. The artwork need not be a “branded” one. The important things are that the painting should (a) gel with the overall scheme of the room; and (b) not look like a poor replica of some original artwork. As long as these two conditions are met, the “brand” won’t matter much.
Flooring comes next. A decent priced wool carpet or stone tiles can provide the look and feel of luxury to your home. A carefully crafted handmade carpet is any day better than artificially created custom-made flooring.
You must be extra careful while spending on furniture requirements. One thing about luxury furniture is that it acts like a seductive temptress. You have to be extra careful to resist the temptation of spending too much on luxury furniture items. A better option is to look for the reproduction pieces manufactured by furniture makers, like Baker Furniture or Century Furniture. Kitchen with granite finish can be inexpensively royal.
Affordable luxuries also come at a price but this should not daunt you, as the satisfaction of having a luxurious home is much more valuable than affordable luxuries. Apart from buying new items, you can also mould your existing furniture into a luxurious outlook. Silk pillows and tapestry finish are good options for affordable luxury. Decorative and inexpensive plants could lend the oomph factor in the drawing room. And most importantly, never clutter your home with excessive furniture. Always allow some breathing space in your rooms.
Choosing Bedroom Curtains
Space To Yourself Is Imperative In Your Bedrooms:
Curtains have many purposes in the home not together from making the room give the impression of being grand. They draw closer in many different styles, types, and insignia giving you more of a choice to choose from.Taking care of a house are something that most people love to do. There are many accessories and different things that you can add to any room in order to give it an additional presence and to help make it look better as well. Curtains are essential for any room and they can have a few different purposes in anyone’s house. They appear in so many different colors, patterns and styles that they will suit anyone’s color format and tastes.
Appropriate Size And Color Of Your Curtains :
One rationale of having over and done with is to have some space to you in all of the rooms. Not only this but they can also be enormous to keep heat in when it’s cold and they can control the amount of light that comes through when it is sunny. Also, they vary in price so you could get budget curtains which can look really good, to the more luxurious ones which look fantastic. It all depends upon your own personal tastes.
The foremost thing that you need to do is gauge your transom. Measure the length as well as the width. Then you should decide how far you want your curtains to hang. Wither you want them to stop right below the window, or hang and puddle on the floor. Add these inches into your window measurements. Next you should decide on the rod sleeve, and the hem. You will need to allow inches for both of these, and you will find that the larger the hem on your contemporary fabric curtains, the better the curtains will glance.
Once you know how much yardage of fabric you will need per window, you will be ready to go and buy the fabric for your curtains. You can have them cut each panel for you, so that you can just come home and sew, or you can cut them yourself once you get home. You also need matching thread, and you will be using a serer and a tapestry machine.
You should consider the most suitable length for your over and done with. Some can take the weight off your feet just above the window ledge, giving the impression of fitting neatly into the window space. These are ideal when you have a radiator under the window, so you don’t lose all the heat up through the window behind the curtain. If you want your curtains to rest just below the window ledge, be sure your curtain pole is mounted far enough from the wall to ensure that curtain can hang freely and does not touch the window sill. Floor length curtains should finish just before the floor so they don’t drag. If they touch the floor they will become grubby very promptly and may be stood on and ripped.
In conclusion you should conclude if you need your curtains lined or not. Lining can add considerable disbursement you your curtains, but it is worthwhile if you need the extra seclusion, wadding or soundproofing that lined curtains can provide. You can also buy interlined curtains, with a third panel of insulation fabric between the curtain itself and the main inside layer. Lining can also make your curtains hang better if they are made from a lightweight bits and pieces.

Window Valances Transform Rooms To Make Them Look Their Best
Valances are window treatments that cover the uppermost part of the window and are a great window enhancement especially if you have a view you don’t want obscured as it will not block incoming light nor take away your view. Window valance ideas are very popular in most home decorating books.
There are various types to choose from. A no sew valance is an inexpensive and very popular type as well. It used to be that valances were more of formal designs with elaborate fringed and constructed from rich tapestries. Contemporary designs are typically made of linen or cotton which lends a more informal style.
Where you place your window valance is an important part of creating the enhancement of your windows. If you are looking to lengthen your windows you would place the valance at the bottom of your window consequently to shorten longer windows place the valances at the lower section.
Typically your valance should cover no more than one third of your window or they will overpower your window and look too ostentatious. Be cautious of the fact that using a valance at a two story window may cause the effect of lost height and space.
Some of the most typical valances styles are: Balloon valance which is called that because of the shape and the way it drapes at the window. The fabric is doubled along the rod which gives the effect of a balloon. By stuffing it with a soft substance such as tissue paper it creates shape.
Cotton fabrics or fabrics with bright patterns are an excellent choice. Another very popular type of valances is swag valances. This type of valance is best left short to bracket each side of your window. The swag is placed of each side of your window at the very top. You fold the material in a continuous parallel similar to that of a brochure fold or accordion and hang it across the two brackets. If your window is large then you may need a central bracket to secure the weight.
A more complicated type of valance is a pleated valance these are a little more complicated thus if you are thinking of making your own but are not a skilled draper you may want to leave it up to a professional. Even for the novice a window valance is pretty easy to create. Your main concern would be how well the window treatment ties in with your decor. It is just a matter of personal choice as to your style of valances and swags.
Personally I like a very feminine touch for my valances and find lace valances ideal for my rating profile.

Taking Advantage of the Affordable Price of Discount Drapes

Lots of people are happy about taking advantage of the affordable price and the opportunity to use the materials for other re-decoration work: pillows, couches or any other items of tapestry could be reconditioned by help of such materials. The best place to find any type of discount drapes is the Internet, due to the large number or business owners interested in avoiding stock formation.
Let’s take for instance the case of insulated curtains, they are very likely to come for great prices in spring, so this is the time when you should consider purchasing discount drapes. Insulated discount drapes will make a great purchase for the next cold season when they’ll keep noise and cold outside of your home. The prices will drop significantly since manufacturers have all the interest to sell all of their season-related products. Such discount drapes are most often available for half the price if you take the time to check with producers online and get their offers, which are even up to 50% more advantageous than those of retail shops.

Fusing Scandinavian and Tuscan home style
The Scandinavian influence has long been admired and imitated in homes around the world, the décor a blend of style and simplicity. Light shades of beige, whites and greys soften the room and give a feeling of sophisticated elegance. Neutral shades create a harmonious feel throughout the house. Natural fabric such as cotton and linen are best used for styling in the Scandinavian way.
In my opinion, Scandinavian pieces work incredibly well within the Tuscan home. Woven in with old terracotta tiled floors, marble sinks, stone and ironwork, you can create a great atmosphere. I’ve always preferred a very practical working kitchen with freestanding furniture and open shelving, which is typical of both Scandinavian and Tuscan homes. Simple glass jars displaying the contents make for easy accessibility and look colourful and interesting too. They can be picked up very cheaply in local markets and hardware shops. Saucepans hanging from the ceiling on a simple iron frame look great and the lids can be displayed against a wall, placed behind an iron or stainless rod. It drives me mad if I have to rummage through a cupboard with all that clattering and pans falling out in disarray. You can bet the very one you are after is at the bottom!
Local handcrafted baskets look super hung on the wall with tea towels rolled up inside and give a country feel. I have found local Tuscan basket weavers will gladly incorporate an extra basket loop for hanging! Fruit and vegetables also look wonderful displayed in these baskets after you bring them home fresh from the market. Much to my husband’s despair I really do have a ‘thing’ about baskets. I love the old ones that come in such a variety of shapes and sizes, but the local handmade ones are also hard to resist with their beautiful twisted handles. You can find them displayed on stalls at your local Tuscan sagra, and at other festivals.
By combining interesting styles – such as Scandinavian – and adding a touch of ‘treasure’ from the past, you’ll soon develop an individual look. One that will compliment your home in Tuscany.
These days, I choose decor and home furnishings that I can really live with; items that work harmoniously with one another, creating a greater sense of ‘comfortability’ somehow. Most of us lead busy lives and our home should be our haven, a place where we feel re-energised a place we can truly feel relaxed. No other place inspires me more than Tuscany; this rich tapestry of earthy colours, delicious food, wine, hills, vineyards presently laden with fully rounded deep purple and green grapes, glorious sunflowers worshipping the sun and it’s passionate vibrant people.

Tips to choose the Right Curtains for your Home
Curtains can be used in many different ways, they can be hung from rods or they can be draped over rings. They can be of floor length and of heavy material or they can be light and flimsy ones just midway down the wall. Another very important consideration should be the style and size of the windows as the point is not to overshadow or completely block them out, but to enhance their beauty.
Let’s look a few useful tips that will help you choose the right curtain for your home:
• It is important that the curtain you choose is both functional and attractive. Today there are many easy to maintain materials that can be used for draperies, so make sure that you study the fabrics well to understand your requirements.
• Match the curtain fabric with that of the upholstery. This ensures that there is one particular theme running through out the room, which creates a tidy and harmonious look.
• Make sure the curtains length and the fabric weight are proportionate to the window’s style and size.
• If you want to create a period feel in the room then you should opt for fabrics with classic patterns that immediately add character to the room.
• Have the same theme running through your bed linen, towels and table cloths which are an important part of the overall decorations in the room.
• Use sheer or gauze curtains if you want to create a light and airy space. These light weight curtains are semi transparent and so can either be used along with slightly heavier second curtains that can be drawn in the night to offer privacy.
• You can use rugs and carpets in complementary colours to the curtains to demarcate social areas in the room. Say you have two chairs and a coffee table; you can place these on a rug in a particular area to highlight the seating area in the room.
• You can use Venetian blinds to offer control on the amount of light entering the room without completely blocking out the light and air.
• Curtains can be used for insulation as well, thus helping in the green campaign. If you live in a cold region then use heavy drapes that will block out the cold air and keep the warmer in, thus reducing your heating bills. Likewise in hotter regions use light curtains for an airy feel.
• If you are going to have bright colours on the walls or have lot of art work then it is advisable that you opt for neutral coloured curtains. The same goes for bright furniture.
• You can use left over fabric from your curtains to use as upholstery. If you have ample material left you can cover a whole chair, if not then two or three cushions will do fabulously.
• You can use rugs and tapestries on your walls as these not only look good and add warmth to a room, but also improve its acoustics.
