Using Feng Shui to maximize your home's energy
By Payless Decor
4/11/2013 3:39:00 PM  

Feng Shui is the art of maximizing the energy flow in your home. It originated in China, where energy is referred to as chi. Getting a good energy or chi balance in your home can help to de-stress any room and promote positive feelings. Many people in both the Eastern and Western worlds embrace Feng Shui's simple guidelines to improve their home decor.

Energy
Beneficial energy flow is central to the Feng Shui approach, notes India Times. The flow of energy goes from the front door all the way through your home, so it's best not to have any objects in the way. All furniture should be arranged so that you are still able to pass through a room unhindered. Try to position furniture so that the user's back is to the wall - this will help them to feel more grounded and relaxed. Removing clutter before it becomes somewhat of a permanent fixture in your home will help keep energy pulsing as well as make your home feel more inviting.

Materials
There are five main elements of Feng Shui: wood, metal, water, earth and fire, notes HGTV. It's best to balance the amount of each element that is present in a room. There is also a heavy emphasis on using natural materials, so utilizing wood for furniture, decorations and accessories like wood blinds can be very helpful. When using wood, try to mimic the natural shapes and flow of trees. Having columns or other rounded wood shapes can help. A wonderful new option we carry are our bamboo roller shades. They provide a natural look, all light to filter in your room and come in a variety of gorgeous styles.

Bamboo Roller Shades

Fire is another great element to incorporate and you don't actually need a fireplace. Candles will work in many cases or you can view fire more symbolically and use items that evoke a primal feel, like animal prints. With earth, it's also fine to just use things that have the same colors instead of actually using raw materials to decorate your home. Metal is common in many houses and should be used in its full capacity because it is a strong and shapely material. As far as water goes, if you don't want to install a hot tub, don't fret - objects with deep blues and greens will work fine as well.

Light
Taking advantage of natural light plays an important role in Feng Shui as well. Keep all your windows free of obstructions and try to use blinds and shades made of natural materials whenever possible. Hanging mirrors are also a great way to boost the light in your home, as keeping it bright is good for the mood.

Bamboo - the ultimate bathroom material
By Payless Decor
9/4/2012 3:58:00 PM  

When you're redesigning a bathroom, bamboo probably isn't the first material that comes to mind. After all, ceramic tile, glass and porcelain are what typically dominate in the bathroom. But there are plenty of reasons why bamboo is the ultimate choice, and just as many ways to use it.

First of all, bamboo is a super eco-friendly resource that doesn't have a negative impact on the environment. It can grow up to three feet in a single day and thrives without the use of pesticides, making it a wonderful crop. It even releases more oxygen than other plants, helping to freshen up the atmosphere! It's also extremely durable and resistant to bacteria, making it perfect for use in a bathroom.

Of course, bamboo accessories aren't just about function - they're also attractive. When you use bamboo window blinds, bamboo floors and bamboo textiles, you lend your bathroom a clean, spa-like vibe that's perfect for the space. The decor possibilities of the material are endless, but if you're looking for a few ideas, check out some of Martha Stewart's suggestions.

How to nail Asian-style decor in your bathroom
By Payless Decor
8/29/2012 3:16:00 PM  

The bathroom is often a place where homeowners go to relax, whether in a shower or a bath. As such, soothing design schemes and tranquil colors are often used to help promote rest. What better way to achieve the Zen feeling than with Asian-style decor? If you're not sure what kind of appearance you should be going for, here are some tips to guide you.

1. Use neutral colors. Shades that you would find in nature are ideal for Asian-style bathrooms, so opt for hues like brown, beige, gray and white.

2. Bring in dark wood. A dark wood vanity and maybe even a shoji screen would help to make the room look authentic. Faux wood blinds with a darker, textured color or bamboo roman shades could also add to the effect.

3. Set up a few plants. Choose to include orchids or ornamental grasses into your bathroom's design. These will not only look lovely, but will keep the air fresh.

4. Keep it asymmetrical. Asian decor typically features asymmetrical elements that work to balance each other, so keep this in mind as you're bringing in accent pieces.
