Some of the rooms that it is the most fun to decorate are the kids rooms. Whimsy is not only acceptable it is expected! You can make decisions when decorating a childs room that you would not make for any other room in your home. Endless options are available when choosing a theme for a kids room. One fun option is a country style kids room. Here are some tips and ideas to help you get started.

Country Colours
One of the first things that you have to do when decorating any room is choose the colours. For a childs country style room, consider plaid in shades of red and blue. For an older child, you may want to opt for a more elegant country look. In that case you could choose just about any neutral colours and add pops of colour with orange, red or gold.

If you have a specific colour that you want to incorporate, there are ways to do it. Just be careful not to pick too busy of a palette. Stick to two or three colours to avoid creating a cluttered looking space.

Rodeo Roundup
For kids who are ages 6 to 11, a rodeo themed room is a fun way to create a country style room. Get creative by using rope as wall dcor. You can even create a headboard by using rope. Another fun idea is to frame some cowboy boots complete with mud in the spurs as wall art.

For the bed, choose one made from unfinished logs for a country style look that will fit right it with the rodeo theme.

Barnyard Fun
Younger children will love spending time in the barnyard theme room. One fun idea for a bed is to use a piece of fence for the headboard. For wall dcor, choose pictures of all manner of barnyard animals. For a custom look, have a barnyard mural painted on one of the walls.

Wall decals are available that feature barnyard animals and other images that would be perfect choices for a barnyard themed bedroom.

Bedding
The bedding for a country style room does not necessarily have to fit the theme. Some parents are leery about spending money for a themed comforter set that the child may grow tired of in a few months. If this is how you feel then just buy a solid coloured bedding set that includes a colour that is featured in the room. For example, if you have a barnyard scene painted on the wall, choose a green (grass) or white (fencing) comforter set that will go nicely with the painting.

A country style bedroom can be fun for kids of all ages, and it allows you to be creative and to style a room that is full of whimsy.

To port a mortgage means that you are transferring an existing mortgage to a new property, commonly referred to as portable mortgage or simply port mortgage. Essentially, you would want to port your mortgage in order to get out of dangerous grounds like negative equity which can become severe if left with no action. Low interest rate could also encourage you to go for port mortgage so as to take advantage of the current low rates. Porting your mortgage can also help you escape possible penalties.

Limited lenders
It is understood that only a few lenders would allow you to port mortgage due to negative equity because they want to limit risks as much as possible. Most of them did allow borrowers to port mortgage negative equity during the early nineties but this was specifically done as a way of stimulating the market. There are still a number of them allowing it and you might be lucky to find out that your lender is one of them. All the same, if you really think that port mortgage negative equity is the best option you have got, don’t be discouraged. Go a head and discuss it with your lender, convince them why you think you must do it.

Better than selling
When faced with negative equity, most borrowers find themselves in devastating conditions with very limited options. Often, selling the property could just be the main alternative available to you as a victim of negative equity. However, selling is not actually a wise decision because it can often be a cause of significant mortgage shortfall and this will worsen the situation further. Instead of selling, porting will be most appropriate in such circumstances and you will need to consult with your lender before making any move towards selling. Provided you have no intentions of acquiring additional lending, there are some lending entities that will allow you to port your current mortgage to a new property all together. Examples of lenders that can allow you to port your mortgage include Lloyds Banking Group (part of it), Lloyds TSB and Halifax, plus Nationwide and Coventry building societies.

You can port part of the mortgage
If you are not keen on porting your entire current mortgage, it is still possible to port just part of the mortgage and be left with the rest. This would happen in circumstances where you still want to retain some of the current features due to specific reasons that would favor your situation. It could be that there are certain features of the mortgage you do not want to let go. Maybe it’s a special rate that you want to retain because you will not enjoy it if you port your entire mortgage.

Arranging Furniture In Your Room

December 22nd, 2014 / / categories: Room & Furniture /

A lot of factors come together when it comes to purchasing furniture. Many people do not think about all of them until after they already have a significant amount of furniture. They run into a problem. They do not know how to arrange all of the furniture they have purchased. Others run into this problem without purchasing any furniture. Some people inherit furniture or they are given furniture as a gift.

It can be quite the task to arrange a lot of furniture. A good place to start is to think about colors. Having a neon green sofa with a plaid yellow couch in the same room is probably a bad idea. That is especially true if the room is painted blue. This is, of course, assuming that an eclectic, strange look is not the goal.

It is important to group together furniture with a similar palette. This does not mean that all of the furniture must match exactly. It is okay to combine black and white or a solid with a pattern. Everything must flow nicely together though. The only person who can determine how well it flows is the one arranging the furniture. If none of the colors work well together, putting new fabric onto the existing furniture might be the perfect option.

The next consideration is the size of the furniture. Putting a sectional to add more seating in a bedroom is very rarely practical. The largest rooms ought to have the largest furniture. The rooms where people hang out the most ought to have the most seating. It should be oriented in a way to focus on what is important. For some families, the furniture should be focused on the television for movie night. Other families may want it focused on the fireplace to get cozy during the cold seasons. The room will make more sense if there is a focal point. It will also make more sense with some flow. No one wants to jump over the furniture inside of a room!

These two factors will help make arranging furniture easier. There really is a very logical pattern to making a room look its best. Furniture is wonderful to have, but it all must be used appropriately. Sometimes, less is more with furniture. It is better to have an open room with less seating than a cluttered room where people feel uncomfortable. Arranging the furniture in an open way can make all of the difference in the world.

My grandmother bought me a set of 6 china cups and saucers for my 21st birthday. Now I’m 50 but those cups and saucers have been used almost daily. Sure, I lost two cups at some point but it doesn’t really matter. Those objects were given for me to love and enjoy them and I’ve had nearly thirty years worth of enjoyment out of them. Of course I could have kept them safe in bubble-wrap at the back of the cupboard but what would be the point of that? Most of us will happily use supermarket glassware and keep the cut-glass in the cupboard. Why? If you have precious items that you want to use but are worried about them being lost or destroyed consider the following: -Take a really great photograph of the object. If you lose the object you’ll have the photograph forever. -Make sure items are properly insured. -Display them somewhere safe (in a lit cabinet? In a jewellery box?). -Be sensible about their use – don’t give your best cut glasses to the children (although I used to … and my children never broke any). -Don’t put your favourite items in the dishwasher or the washing machine (wash by hand) … I’ll admit I stick most things in the dishwasher but that’s just me! However, once you have decided which precious items to keep, clean them carefully and look after them. -Make sure your antique jewellery has a safety chain fitted (a good jeweller will do this for you). Don’t wear that precious necklace until you get the clasp fixed etc (be sensible about it). Then, once you’ve taken precautions, use and enjoy the items that you love. Granddad would have wanted you to have worn his gold pocket watch occasionally or at least have it placed in a beautiful display box where you can enjoy it every day.

It seems like nothing is made quite like it used to be made. Modern furniture and interior decorations are often inexpensive, stylish, and lightweight.

If you go back through history, you’ll discover that building furniture, for example, was not done in bulk for the masses. Furniture was created and designed by skilled artisans and carpenters with an eye for detail, style, and beauty. Furniture was made of the finest materials. These are admirable qualities that are more rare to find in furniture stores today. Antiques are typically purchased from estate sales, auction houses, online auctions, and antique shops. Many antiques are inherited and have been passed down through families for hundreds of years. Antique dealers are often members of national trade associations.
