Natanguliza Shukrani Zangu kwenu wadau wangu

Tangu nimeanzisha blog hii ya Home Decoration (Interior Design & Landscaping), mwaka 2009/August, Nashukuru imepokelewa vizuri na wadau wangu, na imenipatia, wateja, marafiki, na pia tumeweza ku maintane kua ni blog ya decor na si vinginevyo....

Nina mengi ya kuongea ila ngoja niyafanye mafupi.....

Kuanzisha kwangu blog hii ni kwamba nilitaka huduma hii iwafikie watu wengi zaidi, na iweze kuwasaidia, na kweli nimefanikisha hilo, wengi wanafanya decor kwa ushauri ninaowapa, wengine kwa kunitumia email, simu, sms. tena wao wenyewe bila mie kuwepo

Mmeweza pia kunivumilia pale ambapo ninachelewa ku update, hasa kipindi ambacho nilikua mjamzito, na sasa ninalea, kwa hiyo ninatakiwa ni balance muda, kwa haya yote, na nimeweza kufanya hivyo.

Ninachoweza ni kuwashukuru sana sana sana, na ninaomba mtarajie mengi, mengi mapya, kwani nimekua nikifanya projects, ya jinsi gani ya kuweza kuwasaidia katika kuelimishana.

Kama kuna mahali nimewakosea, ama niliteleza, tusameheane, nami pia nimewasamehe wote wale walionikosea.

Mwaka 2012 ninataka kuukaribisha vizuri na ninafuraha sana sana, kwani nitakua na mtoto wangu Jaydan, I'm proud to be a mum (single mum) hakuna kinachoshindikana ukimuomba mungu na kuamiani.

Napenda kuchukua fursa hii kuwashukuru wale wote waliokua nami katika kipindi chote cha ujauzito mpaka sasa na tunaendelea kushirikiana, kwani hao ndio marafiki wa kweli, sio kweye raha tuuuuu.......

Nawatakia Muukaribishe mwaka mpya salama. Nawapenda woteeee

Naomba mawazo yenu, na ushauri wenu juu ya hili......

Ninawashukuru wadau wangu popote mlipo, kwani bila nyie nisinge fika hapa nilipo, maana bado pia nina safari ndefu.....

Nimekua nikipata kazi, kwa wanaohitaji huduma yangu, nashukuru mungu wanaikubali na wanaipenda, na nimekua nikiona kua nyumba nyingi zinakua na vitu ambavyo hawatumii, e.g sofa's, carperts, vyombo, tv, computer, vitanda, (visiwe vimechakaa sana, yaani vimetoboka ama kupasuka) etc. Nikaanza nao wao kwa kuwauwauliza, kama ikitokea wavipunguze wataweza kuvitoa bure/ kugawa.... maana wao hawavitumii, wengi wao wakasema sawa hakuna shida.

Sasa basi nikaona  niilete hii mada kwenu ndugu wadau, ni hivi, nimekua nikifikiria sana kua tutawasaidiaje hawa ndugu zetu, watoto wetu yatima?

Hivyo mi niliona kua, kama una vitu ambavyo hauvitumii, tutapanga ndani ya mwezi mmoja, Homez Deco, na wadau wengine watakaojitokeza kusaidia,  maana litahitajika gari la kufuata vitu majumbani etc. sehemu ya kuhifadhi hivyo vitu. tutavikusanya vitu hivyo, mpaka siku itakayokua imechaguliwa.

Lakini sasa, vitu hivyo vitauzwa kwa watu wa hali ya chini, na bei itakua ni karibu na bure, na hela itakayopatikana, itanunua vifaa ambavyo vituo hivyo vya watoto yatima wamevihitaji, na tutawapelekea.

Kwa mtindo huu tutakua tumewasaidia watu wa makundi 2 kwa pamoja. Watu wa hali ya chini. na watoto yatima.

Hii itasaidia sana kupunguza vitu visivyohitajika majumbani mwetu, na nyumba kua safi, ila nguo hazitaingia katika kundi hili kwa sasa.

Nashukuru sana kwa kua nami.

NB: Tayari nimeongea na Khadija Mwanamboka na amekubali tutasaidiana kwa hili, wengine ni marafiki zangu wa karibu, na wateja wangu wote wamekubali kusaidiana nami. Nawashukuru sana sana.

Pantone Tangerine Tango, How to use this color of the year 2012, the photos says it all












Dance into the New Year with this Vivacious and Appealing Reddish Orange









The 2011 color of the year, PANTONE 18-2120 Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

Over the past several years, orange has grown in popularity and acceptance among designers and consumers alike. A provocative attention-getter, Tangerine Tango is especially appealing in men’s and women’s fashion. Fashion designers featured in the PANTONE Fashion Color Report Spring 2012, including Tommy Hilfiger, Nanette Lepore, Cynthia Steffe by Shaun Kearney, Elie Tahari and Adrienne Vittadini, are incorporating this attractive orange into their spring collections. A fun, lively take on a traditional autumnal hue, Tangerine Tango will surely carry through to fall fashion as well.

A winner in cosmetics because of its versatility, Tangerine Tango is a bit exotic, but in a very friendly, non-threatening way. Add a sultry flair to lips, cheeks and nails with Tangerine Tango. An unexpected eye shadow color, Tangerine Tango is a complementary opposite that flatters blue or green eyes. When paired with brown eyes, it brings out an amber cast.

Energize interior spaces with Tangerine Tango patterned home accessories. Pillows, bedspreads and tabletop accessories in this high-impact hue add spice to any room. Or incorporate Tangerine Tango appliances and personal electronics for an unexpected pop of color. Looking for an inexpensive way to perk up your home? Paint a wall in Tangerine Tango for a dynamic burst of energy in the kitchen, entryway or hallway.

Add Crazy colors to your living room........




My client called and asked me, if I could do a quick change to their living room for  x-mass and new year, and it has to fit their budget. ( This living room was black&red theme) 

So what I had in mind is to change the curtains, curtain rods and add the pillows, and the pillow cases have be in crazy colors so as to brighten up the living room.

As you can see, I chose silver as the color of the curtains, and the pillow cases are in crazy colors, which are, yellow, orange, pink, etc...

Well here we're, waiting 4 X-mass and New Year to arrive.......

Thank you my client for allowing me to take pictures and share with others..

Happy Holidays















If you didn't had your copy of the citizen last saturday, this is how it looked.....

The Pros & Cons of Color Visualizers

Once you have a color family or two in mind that you think you might like you may want to go online and see if you like the look in a room.

Almost all paint companies and many other sites have an online color visualize that can help you to image how a color will look within a room.

 If you want to use an online tool to spark your imagination then I'm sure you can find one online.

A visualizer is a wonderful tool for giving you an idea of how a color will look but that is all it is...an idea of the color.

You need to take that "idea" to the paint store and find a actual paint color that will produce that results you desire and I can almost bet in most cases it won't be the exact color number of the paint you chose online so be open to finding the color that will actually produce the look you love.

TIP: Your computer may be able to do most things with great accuracy and consistency however displaying colors is not one of them.

One picture says more than a hundred words







hata black & white pia inatumika wakati wa X-mass

Maandalizi ya X-mass na Mwaka mpya........hizi ni baadhi ya kazi zetu..






Before hatujaweka pazia

shee ikiandaliwa

yaani unaweza kumfunguza fundi akiwa kazini ukahisi anakuharibia mpangilio wa nyumba yako.... hivi kweli..... ila usihofu kila kitu kitakwenda poa....at the end


 Shee ikiwekwa hooks




marinda ya pazia. fundi akifanya kazi yake.....








kabla ya kuweka pazia hua tufuta vumbi curtain poles. homez deco hatufanyi kazi ilimradi... yaani bora liende.... hiyo kwetu haipo. 

hapa fundi akidrill ukuta kwa ajili ya kuweka curtain holder


nilitoa pia ushauri, kama unavyoona kua tumepunguza baadhi ya picha za ukutani, na tumetoa vitambaaa. Leather sofas hua hazitandikwi vitambaa..


Baada ya kuweka pazia. (sehemu ya kanuni ya Homez Deco ni kwamba acha nyumba safi kama ulivyoikuta, wateja wetu wamejionea hiloooo)

coffee table

Stools


photos

Hii ni kazi ya Homez Deco, tuliweka mapazia, na kama picha zinavyojionyesha...... Nyumba hii ina theme ya Africa.... Kwa kweli nilipenda sana theme hii, na upambaji wa kiafrika, hua unapendeza sana sana, na hua haichoshi mapambo yake. Sasa, mimi kama designer, kwa haraka haraka tuu mapambo yote kwa ujumla nilivyoyaoona ni kua, mwenye nyumba anapenda sana mandhari ya bahari, na ya kitamaduni ya kiafrika,,,

Naomba nikuambie, wengi wetu hua tunapamba nyumba alimradi tuuuu rangi zipo basiiii. Nyumba inatakiwa ikukaribishe, inatakiwa iwe friendly etc. Sasa basi hebu tuchukue mfano huuuuu, pamba nyumba kutokana na theme unayoipenda, Kama unapenda bahari basi weka corals etc.

Hii itakusaidia sana sana ku pamba nyumba yako, kwa urahisi sana.....

Enjoy......
