Printed wallpaper, DIY, Tips
Tie a small object like a key to your wire and hang it on the wall with a little tape to get a straight line.
Take a ruler and the pen and draw a straight line along the wire. Spray the back of the printed wallpaper with some water. Then you can finally place it on the wall paying close attention.
Always start from the top and gently attach the paper to the wall with the brush. This will prevent the formation of bubbles. Don’t worry too much because with this lawn paper you can change and reposition the support as many times as you want. Cut the excess printed wallpaper with the cutter and it is done: your walls will have a new look!

Simple, fast and beautiful!

7 tips to furnish the corridor

Make the most of the entrance area! Dalani gives you 7 precious tips to furnish the corridor and transform this space into a comfortable and welcoming place. Not just a place of passage, but a living environment.

Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice 7 tips to furnish the corridor
7, the perfect number to guarantee the best advice in order to furnish the corridor, transforming it into an environment endowed with its own personality, to be experienced like the other rooms of the house. Here is the list of Dalani to customize based on your style:

Add color
A colonial touch
Library for corridor
Create a personal office
Play with the illusion of depth
Make the corridor smaller
Light up the corridor
Greedy ideas like candy, all to be discarded.

1) Furnish the corridor – Add color
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice If you have a long corridor and find it a bit boring, brighten it up with bright colors. An orange, combined with an ad hoc lighting, can make an environment usually destined for the passage one of the most pleasant areas to live. If you don’t feel like using strong colors, you can choose colored carpets of different shapes and sizes. Paintings, photos and prints bring further liveliness to the hallway: a home art gallery to furnish the corridor. A true little masterpiece.

2) How to furnish the corridor – A colonial touch
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice If your corridor is very large you can create a mini living room inside it. Wood and leather are a must, as are sheepskin rugs and mirrors. For the carpet, don’t forget that the “zebra” pattern is very trendy this year.

3) Create spaces with a corridor bookcase
The walls of the house do not only serve to hang paintings. Along the corridor wall you can install a library with sections dedicated to CDs and DVDs. A cultural walk between one room and another.

4) Furnishing the corridor – How to create a personal office
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice Do you need a space in which to work but don’t have a free room? Try to take advantage of the corridor! If it is large enough you could place a small desk and a chair on it, thus creating a small office. Turn it into an even more comfortable place with the addition of a beautiful table lamp. Furnishing the corridor will thus become a true exercise in ingenuity.

5) Entrance furniture – Create an illusion of depth
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice Your entrance is short and narrow but do you want it to appear long and wide? Just hang a mirror and play with the optical illusion that can spread a greater sense of spatial depth. Even the light is able to change the perception of the dimensions of a room.

6) Reduce the corridor
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice Furnishing the corridor is often a question of necessity. Is your entrance area very wide and you would like to make it appear narrower to avoid a little lived aesthetic drift? From a single large room you can get two different ones using curtains and filling the space with furniture: a sideboard surrounded by two stools can be the ideal solution. The easiest? Playing with carpets with important patterns, but not in obvious contrast to each other, to avoid the feeling of “noise” in the chosen style.

7) Illuminate the corridor – Entrance lights and light colors
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice If you think that your passage is too dark, light it by painting the walls white and adding different points of light. If you have the opportunity, install a glass wall with sliding doors, a solution that guarantees a greater supply of natural light to the room. Furnishing the corridor in the most strategic way can change your living space with the lightness of a light beam.

Area Rugs in Arlington VA

Arlington Area Rugs

Décor is, to some, an afterthought. To others, it’s a secret key to happiness. To me, it’s a reason to come home every day. When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time at various relatives’ houses while my mother was working. This exposed me to a variety of lifestyles ranging from disorganized and claustrophobic to bright and relaxing. I quickly learned which one I preferred. As I got older, I started taking over my own home’s décor from my mother. By the time I left high school, I had completely changed the way our house looked and felt. This was due in part to my parents’ busy schedules preventing them from doing much decorating of their own. However, it was largely caused by my own anxieties and compulsions. I’m the type of person who needs everything to have a nice, neat, and orderly appearance. This was reflected in the furniture and organization I started implementing in the house. From the way books are catalogued on the shelves, to the way cutlery is separated by use, my methods ranged from practical to extreme. Were it any other way, however, I’d be stressed beyond belief. Having control over the details inside my house gave me the satisfaction of knowing everything was where I wanted it to be. The other benefits to organizing the house included saving space and making the place more inviting to guests. There’s a great piece of mind that comes with free space and an open home when looking for area rugs in Arlington VA.
My changes went beyond tidying up the place. We were able to lose some clunky and outdated furniture and find better uses for the new space. The living room got a new couch with matching recliner. The kitchen counter finally became a place to prepare food, and not just a repository of daily items. At first it was difficult to get my family on board with the improvements, but over time they adjusted to a cleaner house with less junk floating around.
There were smaller improvements too. Simply hiding wires that led to the T.V. did as much for the look of the home as anything else. I repainted the rooms to lighter shades of primary colors, to add some life to the otherwise dark home. After updating to new, matching drapes that stay open during the day, one could be forgiven for thinking we’d moved to a new house.
Sometimes, my parents’ inclination towards a rustic theme clashed with my spartan, modern taste. The den that they held onto as their own is complete with a cobblestone hearth and fireplace (a passion project of my mason father), ceramic-lined cross tie mantel, traditional western paintings, and a generally taupe color scheme. My bedroom, on the other hand, has black, squared, minimalist furniture, mostly bare walls, and bright walls and accents. This is integral to my daily happiness. As a full-time student with two part time jobs and extracurricular commitments, my days are draining. Knowing that I can come home to a clean and comfortable room takes a major weight off my shoulders. The desk that I made and integrated into the room is probably the single most important tool to my success as a student. Not only does it complete the look of my room, but it also sees me through my many long nights of homework and project work. From the black, articulated lamp that reaches up from the side, to the network of hidden wires connecting my laptop, hidden desktop, computer monitor, speaker, and accessory charger, the desk has everything I need to help complete the arduous tasks inherent to my engineering education.
In short, interior decoration can mean many things to many people. To me it’s been a hobby of organizing, brightening up my life, and staying on top of my responsibilities. There are few things in life that are so important, yet so overlooked by many. I think if this whole engineering and rocket science thing doesn’t work out for me, I know what career I’d choose next. The one that lets me put my creative eye to use while helping to keep my anxious mind in line.
