Learn How to Mix Patterns - Mixing patterns is easy, but making it look good can be a challenge. Follow these easy tips to give yr home a stylish look

Anchor the Color Scheme

Start with one pattern and pull all the room's accent colors from it. In this room, the master pattern is on the area rug and its stripes provide the palette: orange for the chairs and banquette pillows, green for the walls and window treatments, and blue for the dishware.


Give Eyes a Break


Add white to a room with multiple patterns. White gives eyes a place to rest and highlights the patterns by separating one from another. The white sofa and accents help the cushion, throw pillows, wall, and floor patterns pop.

Mix Types of Patterns

Cottage style has quintessential patterns that help define it. Choose three to mix within a room to create a look you'll love. Plaid seat cushions, a toile Roman shade, and a country French floral on the lampshades create a playful cottage look in this dining room.

Play with Pattern Size

A good mix should include small-, medium-, and large-scale patterns. In this master bedroom, the largest pattern is on the window panels. Smaller-scale patterns cover the accent pillows. To help the pillows and window treatments coordinate, each fabric has white or black in the pattern.

Use Coordinating Colors

An easy way to ensure your patterns will mix is to choose coordinating colors. Red and green are complementary colors because they are directly across from each other on the color wheel, but moving down one tint to pink adds a fun twist to this color palette. Yellow and green mix nicely because they share a common hue. Mixing solids and patterns in pink, green, and yellow creates a pleasing color scheme.

Use Shades and Tints

There's no need to worry about matching when using various shades of a single color. In this living room, the color palette goes from black to white, and uses colors in between. The black portiere, antique statues, gray area rug, and white table lamps round out the color range.

Vary the Scale

Mix and match small and large patterns. Here, the bold flowers on the window shade are a playful contrast to the small stripes of the table runner. These patterns also work well together because both fabrics have the same color palette.


Color Plus White

The easiest way to mix patterns is to stick to one color plus white. The striped panels, floral chair fabric, and geometric floor pillow all stick to the blue-and-white color scheme.

Homez Deco Work (kazi ilikua ni kubadilisha mapazia mengine ili jiko liwe na bright colors)





Hili ndilo pazia la jikoni hapo juu baada ya kubadilisha, kama unavyoona lina bright colors, as we all know ni kua wengi wetu tunapenda sana green color kwa jikoni, inapendeza sanaaaa. Na mapazia ya jikoni hayatakiwi kua na pazia nyepesi ama shear kwa wenzetu wanavyoyaita, na wala hayatakiwi kua na lining, maana jikoni kuna joto sasa unavyoweka lining ama shear basi joto huzidi jikoni. Na design za jikoni mara nyingi hua ni simple tuuuu. 

Pazia hili ni la dinning, lenyewe tulipendekeza liwe fupi, kwa kua lisiweze kusumbua wakati wa kuvuta kiti wakati wa kukaa. Rangi zake zimepooza.

Baby Nursery Decorating Ideas on a Budget


There are many nursery decorating ideas that can save your budget. Many simple things can be done to cut costs if you have to plan the baby’s room on a budget. From the baby furniture and the baby bedding to other essentials like the décor, here are suggestions to lighten the load on your wallet while still creating a beautiful nursery for your baby.

Finding an Affordable Baby Crib

There are several ways that you can save money on a crib:

* Shop at resale baby stores, consignment shops, or garage sales to find a used baby crib. Make sure that it meets crib safety standards. If you find a crib that needs some TLC (tender loving care), you may want to consider refinishing the crib. Be careful of any crib made before 1978 because they may have been painted with lead paint.

* Borrow a crib from a friend or family member. Many people have baby cribs stored in their garage or attic either because they can’t stand to part with it or they are saving it in case they decide to have another child. Ask if you can borrow or rent it from them.


Nursery Bedding on a Budget

* While you can probably find nursery bedding at a  sale price, baby resale shop, or even at Goodwill, there are many stores  that offer discount baby nursery bedding at very affordable prices so you may just want to buy a brand new bedding set for your baby if you can.
 

Saving Money on Décor and Other Essentials for the Baby Nursery

* Search for artwork and wall hangings at discount stores . This is also a situation where you might have some luck by hitting the  Goodwill stores.

* Do without a diaper genie if you can. They aren’t necessary to have.  but we usually ended up walking the diaper to the curb anyway. If you really want to have one, or if you live in an apartment where it would be more necessary to have one, try to find one at a baby resale shop.

Her garden ( the same house we decorate baby's room)

Ukijiamini unaweza, garden hii ameitengeneza yeye mwenyewe, na imependeza sana, nilimuomba nipige picha ili nije kushare nanyi wadau wetu. Hongera sana sana kwa garden nzuri.

Ninachoweza kusema ni kua ukiamua unaweza, ila kwanza upende, ndio uamue, kwenye upande wa garden, ni gharama kiasi, kuanzia kuanza mpaka ku  maintane, na upate kijana mzuri ambaye atakuwa anafanya jinsi utakavyo. 

Sio kila maua ni ya kupanda chini, na sio kila ua linaweza kustahimili joto ama badiri, na udongo pia una mata, bila kusahau mbolea, unaweza ukanunua maua, na kupanda lakini yakafa na ukamlaumu muuzaji, hapana, tafuta ushauri kwa wenye uzoefu na gardening, na watakushauri, na hata hao hao wauzaji weengi wao hutoa ushauri,

Wengi tunasema kua mimi nyumba ya kupanga siwezi kuipendezesha. Sawa , haya mungu kakubariki una nyumba yako, huipendezeshi, wakulaumiwa ni nani? Kila kitu kinakwenda na budget, wengi wetu tunafanya vitu bila budget, na kwa ushauri wakati unajenga ndio wakati mzuri sana wa kutengeneza garden pia ili vyote viende sambamba. 

Hii ni nyumba ya mtanzania mwenzetu na ameweza kufanya hivi, na namshukuru sana sana kwa kuniruhusu kupiga picha. Na naomba kuwataarifu ndugu wadau kua kwa ajili ya usalama, sikupiga picha nyumba, na sisi homez deco, tuna mipaka yetu kwenye kutoa details za decorations, hivyo basi msiogope kututumia picha za nyumba zenu ili tu share mawazo na wenzetu. KIZURI KULA NA MWENZIO KIBAYA MTUPIE ...............




Garden kwa mbele inavyoonekana, nimependa hizo sanamu za bata, it's all about ubunifu.

Nyuma ya nyumba, jamani jamani, nyumba nyingi huwa wanajali kupendezesha mbele ya nyumba, nyuma ya nyumba hua panaachwa ovyo na kuchafu, yaani ndio pa kuficha uchafu. Jamani dhana hizo ni za kizamani nani uchafu. Mbele ya nyumba na nyuma ya nyumba kote panatakiwa kuwe kusafi.
Banda la mbwa, lilinivutia, jamani wanyama pia wana haki zao,na wanahitaji usafi kama sisi binadamu, wanakulinda, kwa nini usiwaweke sehemu ya usafi? Utakuta banda la mbwa bovu, mbwa wana nuka, vinyesi vyao ndio usiseme etc. lol,, banda hili lilinifurahisha sana. TENGENEZA BANDA LA MBWA WAKO, SI NI MLINZI WAKO? KWANINI USIMJALI, MSHAHARA WA MBWA NI MALAZI, CHAKULA, NA MATIBABU.
Entertainment hazikuwa nyuma kwa kweli, it was so lovely,,,, taa za garden ziko garden nzima. UKIAMUA UNAWEZA. KUNA USEMI USEMAO UTAVUNA ULICHOPANDA, KAMA UMEPANDA KUVAAA NA MAZINGIRA YA UNAPOKAA UMEYAPA MGONGO, UTAVUNA MAGONJWA, NA KAMA UMEPANDA KUWEKA MAZINGIRA YA UNAKOKAA NA YANAYOKUZUNGUKA MASAFI, UTAVUNA ................

Homez Deco work (this time was at kigamboni area, and we were decorating baby's room theme was unisex) Enjoy)

Kazi hii ilifanyika wiki moja iliyopita, na nashukuru sana sana kwa ushirikiano na mteja wangu huyu, kwani kazi ilifanyika vizuri na tulimaliza salama. Ilikuwa ni ku decorate chumba cha mtoto wake anayekuja, (hajazaliwa) haya ni baadhi ya maandalizi. Nili discuss nae rangi ya kupaka ukutani, kwani yeye hakutaka kujua jinsia ya mtoto, so theme ya decoration ya chumba hicho ilikua ni neutral colors. Borders za wall paper zilikua ni za kwake. Tulipaka rangi chumba, tuka bandika borders za wall papers kama inavyoonekana, na tuka repair kochi ambalo atakua anatumia eidha kwa wageni watakoingia ama kunyonyeshea mtoto. Mwisho tuka tundika picha ukutani za winnie the pooh. Kazi hii ilifanyika kwa awamu, tatu:

1. tulipaka rangi

2. tulibandika borders za wall papers

3. tuka hang picha ukutani.

Napenda kuchukua fursa hii kumshukuru mteja wangu huyu kwa kunielewa na kuniruhusu kupiga picha kwa ajili ya kumbukumbu na kushare na watanzania wenzetu, kazi za homez deco. Homez Deco inapenda kuwafahamisha kua hua tunahifadhi privace za watu, kwa kuto toa details zozote za mteja, zaidi tuu ya eneo la kazi ilipofanyika. 

Nakutakia kila la kheri na maandalizi mema ya mtoto wetu, mungu awe nawe all the way.

NB: nawaombeni mniwie radhi wadau tarehe inayoonekana hapo kwenye hizi picha si ya kweli, kidogo nilipitiwa ku edit tarehe.

It was so fun enjoy the pictures.







Hapa ni baada ya kubandika picha ukutani yaani hatua za mwisho, na hilo ndilo kochi lenyewe.
Wall paper border inavyoonekana kwa karibu.

Kabla ya kubandika picha ukutani ambayo ndio ilikuwa ni hatua ya mwisho.

Garden Designs / Garden Ideas

Just as a plan is required for indoor remodeling, a detailed plan for your outdoor garden designs and ideas is your best starting point.

Personal Paradise: Ten steps to designing your dream backyard

Tired of looking out your kitchen window to a dreary backyard? These 10 great tips to turn your backyard nightmare into a dream oasis is exactly what you need.

Beating the stress cycle

In today's world, life moves fast; sometimes too fast. Over half of all adults admit to having moderately stressful daily lives, stress that causes health problems and makes life less enjoyable. Stress greatly hurts a person's standard of life, as well as that of those around him or her.

However, there is a way for you to escape this stressful cycle, and it’s easier than you think. A backyard paradise is a perfect place for you to relieve stress and take part in life's simple pleasures. With these ten steps, you will be on your way to creating a stress-blasting haven just outside your home.


1. Discover your Backyard
Consider the natural state of your backyard, and use that image to help decide where improvements are needed. The goal is a delicate balance, a soothing design that offers solace from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tame busy backyards with Zen areas for a more peaceful effect. Spruce up a boring backyard with simple elements such as furniture. Large patios offer small meeting areas, while curved paths can help create additional space even within a cramped backyard. Fashion relaxing nooks and areas along such paths to help create a stress- relieving atmosphere. Outdoor furniture such as rocking chairs can help create the perfect to rest and enjoy the moment.

2. Relax in your Work
Every person has their own style of work, as some enjoy garden work more than others. Remember, the key to this backyard is to relieve your stress, so do what is comfortable for you and your style of work. Do you enjoy getting your hands dirty in the garden? If so, blast some stress while planting in your own backyard. Use the work as a method to relax and enjoy your time with nature.

If not, work more slowly in order to still have an enjoyable time. By doing so, you will still be able to accomplish tasks while having a relaxing time. Consider less maintenance-intensive options for your backyard, such as mulch to help control weeds and plants that don’t require constant care.

3. See it Colorfully
Color is an important element to consider in your backyard paradise, as it creates a subtle visual atmosphere. As you are going for a soothing effect, choose soothing colors such as blues and greens for maximum effect. These colors inspire thoughts on nature, and should be used liberally throughout your garden.

Feng Shui elements can also aid in creating a soothing color-scape. You should study the sheet of elements carefully to determine what is best for use in your backyard. Use other natural colors in your designs, such as those used in stains, plants, raw materials, and statues. These colors compliment the nature around you, and provide an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere to help relieve your stress.

4. Hear the Harmony
Sound is infinitely important to incorporate within your new soothing paradise, as it has very strong effects on mood. Calming sounds from nature such as running water and birdsong can be immensely beneficial, and should be used liberally. Use speakers along paths and throughout your backyard to spread the atmosphere of calm relaxation to all corners. The sounds will calm you and your company, increasing the benefits of every moment you spend in your personal paradise.

5. Use Mother Nature
Nature offers ease of use and enormous soothing benefits to help calm your stress and anxiety. Bird feeders and plants offer irresistible food and shelter for wildlife, and soon birdsong will soothe your mind and help you relax. Wildlife can be encouraged to participate in your backyard symphony, providing a dreamy ambiance to enjoy. Insects such as bees offer both horticultural benefits as well as pleasant noises, and can be attained by using flowering plants. Plants such as azaleas and hollyhocks offer treasures to natural wildlife, such as hummingbirds. Sugar feeders and low nesting spots can also be used to encourage these pleasant little visitors.

6. Find the Right Furniture
Despite being expensive, furniture plays a significant role in your backyard paradise and should be chosen with care. Comfort is the ultimate goal, in order to help provide a soothing atmosphere. However, quality and price are also good things to consider before making a significant purchase.

Use furniture to help create resting spots throughout your entire backyard. Porch chairs are excellent for a soothing rest, and benches can help create perfect nooks. Design everything with your comfort in mind, and don't be afraid to experiment with items such as a hammock.

7. Use the Sun
Your backyard paradise should provide its benefits no matter the time of year, so the sunlight and shade becomes an important element to consider. East-facing sunny areas offer a perfect place to doze or tan, melting your stress away it its warmth. Shaded areas can be accomplished with umbrellas and foliage, and offer a cool respite from the heat of the day.

Fans and cooling elements can also help relieve the heat, and should be carefully considered in your design. Use the shade to help you relax and escape the hassles of normal life, while fighting the hot weather during the summer.

8. Smell the Difference
Scent is a vital element within your backyard paradise, as it creates an atmosphere that fills your nose and mouth. Strive for calming aromas and use them to help soothe frazzled nerves and spice up your haven. Herbs offer not only culinary pleasures, but also wonderful aromas to fill your backyard with. An herb garden is an excellent element to add to your backyard garden.

Heady aromas such as lavender and sandalwood can combine with the smell of grass excellently, offering a wonderful orchestra of smells. Additionally, candles can be used to create smells in your paradise with great effect.

9. Fantastic Fires
Flames and fires offer immense soothing effects both by sight, sound, and smell. Both are excellent elements to incorporate in your backyard, as they can bring people together in a soothing manner. Fire pits also offer the opportunity to create a special outdoor meal, and are a perfect thing to relax around.

Tiki torches also offer both festive and useful aspects to your backyard. While preventing insects from bothering you, they create a wonderful flickering glow that casts a special mood over all present. Nothing could be better.

10. Play it Up


Games not only bring people together, but also are an excellent way to escape the stress of normal life. Be sure to include game elements in your backyard, especially outdoor games such as croquet and horseshoes.

These games will entertain you and your company, as you use your new backyard paradise. For a change of pace, indoor games such as chess or checkers can also be included for an element of strategy. Use the games as a way to lose yourself to the world and enjoy the present moment, life can wait.

Avoiding All the Stress 

If life has you feeling stressed out and tired, it is not only injurious to your health but to that of those around you. However, you do not need to simply accept this. By designing your own backyard paradise, you can have a place to retreat to and enjoy life more simply and slowly. Never be afraid to do so, you will emerge feeling refreshed and revitalized, ready to tackle any task.

Cheer Up Your Home With Lights

Your home lighting is one of the most important features, just as critical as the color of the paints and the style of the furnishings. Lighting creates moods- not only the mood of the room, but also the mood of the occupants. When it comes to lightings, one size does not fit all, so its best to customize the lightings to the tasks performed in the room and the atmosphere you want to create.

TYPES OF LIGHTS FIXTURES

Just like the kind of light used, the style of the light fixtures also creates ambiance. Think about the light purpose: should it blend into the decor? Create an intimate or romantic mood? Or simply provide bright, general purpose illumination? Whatever the need, there's a fixture designed just for that purpose.

WALL SCONCES:

These cone shaped fixtures provide subtle, decorative light, and are ideal for bedrooms. Dining rooms and bathrooms, or anywhere you want soft and intimate lightings. Because they are small and attach to the wall, they work well in cramped rooms which can't accommodate table or floor lamps. Placing sconces in the corners add light, without making the room too bright.


TRACK LIGHTING:

This kind of fixtures uses spot light attached to the metal track, which is attached to the ceiling. Because the individual lights can be repositioned, track lighting works well for the rooms used for the several purposes. For work rooms, the lights can be positioned towards specific work station, such as a sewing machine or table work.

FLOOR OR TABLE LAMPS:

Lamps work best for specific purpose, reading, working, and lighting up a specific area of a room. They may provide enough light for a small room, but probably wont de adequate for the larger room; in this case, you'll need several lamps. However, they are ideal foe accent lighting, and can brighten up dark corners in rooms with only a single overhead fixture. And, because they're easily moved they provide flexibility.

To brighten your mood and your house consider improving your home lighting. As proven by number of studies, notably in regains with extremely abbreviated daylights, light can make big difference in how we feel. So think about adding lamps and light fixtures to brighten dark areas and gloomy spirits. And, when natural light is available, flood your home with it.
