  4. Top 10 things your kid needs for freshman year of college

    The fall semester is about to begin, and if you're sending one of your kids off to college for the first time, you may be wondering what kinds of things to pack and purchase. It's probably been awhile since you were in his or her shoes, after all! To help you out, here's a list of the top 10 things your student will probably need.

    1. New bedding. While you may think it smart to have your kid bring the same sheets and comforter from home to school, this might not work. Many colleges outfit their dorms with extra-long twin beds, which means your son or daughter will need extra-long sheets.

    2. Toiletries. Your kid's going to need to pack up everything he or she needs for personal hygiene, from toothpaste to shampoo to contact lens solution. If the

  5. Five tips for buying second hand furniture

    Whether you're looking to save money or add a bit of vintage decor to your home, buying second hand furniture is a great option. Even if you have brand new items like bamboo window shades or area rugs, used furniture can still fit right into your design plan, especially if you have a DIY streak in you and plan to refurbish the upholstery or touch up the paint job. Here are some tips to help you make good decisions when second hand shopping.

    1. Don't rely on descriptions alone. If you're shopping for used items online, you should never decide to buy a piece that doesn't have a picture included in the ad. Most people who have

  6. Four tips for creating the ultimate media room

    If watching movies and TV shows is how you have fun and relax after a long day of work, chances are you'd like a space that provides all the essentials. A media room is a great choice for the whole family, but there are a few decorative tips to keep in mind.

    1. Eliminate messy wires. With so many plugs, cables, cords and wires connecting your electronics, you might end up with a tangled mess that ruins the look of the space. Install them behind the walls if you can, or hide them behind furniture or in storage cabinets if possible.

    2. Create optimal lighting. Nothing ruins a TV-watching session like the glare of sun on the screen. Roller shades for windows will make sure t

  7. What are the benefits of faux wood blinds?

    If you're trying to decide on blinds and shades for your home, you may have come across the option of faux wood blinds.

  8. Three ways to transform your sleeping experience

    Many people consider sleeping one of their favorite activities, and why not?

Unless, of course, you have trouble catching those Zs. If you're a tosser or a turner, here are three ways you can improve your sleeping experience.

    1. Upgrade your window treatments. If you have blinds in place that somehow still manage to let rays of sunshine assault your eyes every morning, switching to blackout cellular shades can make all the difference, and they're

  9. Four ways to spruce up your home's workspace

    Whether it's a homework desk for your kids, a space where you hunker down to clip coupons or a home office where you actually do work, a workspace shouldn't be solely about function. Yes, you do need certain elements - like blinds and shades that block distracting glare, a comfortable chair and a suitable writing surface - but it's important to have a few decor items that are less utilitarian. Consider these four aesthetic improvements.

    1. Paper products. From stationary to sticky notes to calendars, you can certainly bring design elements into your space with paper. Look for prints that match your color palette or patterns, then put them on display like you would a piece of art.

  10. How to give your team a shout-out without being too loud

    Football season is approaching, and if you're more than excited to settle down in front of the TV to cheer on your favorite team, you might be interested in showing off your team spirit through your interior decor. But unless you're a 20-something dude who's cool with bar-room style, you're probably looking for something that's a bit subtler than larger-than-life team logos and bold primary colors. Here are a few ideas for how to give your team a shout-out without making guests question your tastes.

    1. Don't hold back in kids' rooms. If your son or daughter is a sports fanatic, it's okay to let that shine through, but there are still attractive ways to do it. While having a theme is a great way to make a child's bedroom look cohesive, you don't want
