All You Should Know About Memory Foam Mattress

Does your body ache every morning? Are you restless and sleepless? A memory foam mattress can help remedy these problems and make the day feel better. Lucky for you, the memory foam invented by NASA 50 years ago to protect astronauts is now used in mattresses. When you lie on a memory foam mattress, its soft foam adjusts to every part of your body from head to foot. The temperature-sensitive material distributes body weight evenly and reduces pain. If you suffer with back, neck, hip and joint pain, mattress brands like Ashley-Sleep®, Tempur-Pedic® and other premium brands are perfect for you. They adapt to your body so you can rest easy in personalized comfort. Add an adjustable base and with the touch of a button, you’ll discover that perfect ergonomic position. In addition to pain relief, there are five more great health benefits of memory foam mattresses.

When a memory foam mattress and pillow are used together, your head will be properly elevated. This helps clear the path to easier breathing because your airways are no longer obstructed.

There’s nothing to sneeze at with memory foam. Since these mattresses are made of polyurethane foam, the interior of your mattress will always be free of allergy-causing dust mites. By eliminating one of the major allergens, these mattresses can also help control asthma. 

If your partner constantly tosses and turns, you’ll never know it with a memory foam mattress. The foam isolates all motion and you’ll enjoy uninterrupted sleep. This will positively impact your metabolism, which may in turn help you lose weight, deal with daily stress and improve your overall health.

Contouring support provided by a memory foam mattress keeps the back aligned and delivers pressure-relieving comfort while you sleep. This helps with preventing back pain and future spinal problems. As time goes on, these mattresses are less likely to sag and lose shape, so your back will not suffer.

Living Room Sets: Mix & Match

Living Room Sets: Mix & Match

The living room or family room is known to be the family’s favorite room to chat together and spend some quality time.  This room should combine a mix of warmth and comfort, in order to enable a family to be inclined to gather in this space. Style, comfort and quality all matter to pull off this setting.  In order to achieve this mood, one must select the appropriate pieces to blend together. Blending furniture pieces in a living room does not necessarily imply that they must be from the same collection. On the contrary, a good living room design is a mix of cohesive pieces that blend in color, style and texture. In fact, one might say that even some opposites work well together to create an eclectic mix.

The Azlyn sofa features a vintage casual style, and infuses a mixed media look in such an elegant manner. In this mixture, we have exposed feet in a wood finish, a nailhead trim and gorgeous tufted upholstery. The curvaceous rolled arms provide added character to the sofa. Despite the elegance of the piece, the warm earthy tones create an inviting atmosphere.

The Kannerdy chair features elegant refinement and rugged good looks that blend beautifully with the selected sofa. The dramatic style of the turned feet and the Charles of London arms enhance the English style with this pairing. In addition, the muted neutral tones harmonize well together and create an opportunity to add little pops of color in the room. Lastly, depending on the dimensions of your room, for an optimal design, allow for two chairs facing the sofa.

Finally, the Hindell Park ottoman features a vintage casual style with button tufting detail.  The soft upholstery brightens any room with its colorful and soothing pattern. You’ll enjoy the comfortable atmosphere set by this ottoman once you have your feet up!

Although these pieces are very different and unique in their own way, some key elements such as the similarities with the feet, the muted natural tones and elegant refinement make them mesh well together.

Abstract Wall Art

According to Aristotle, “the aim of art is not to represent the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”. As we know, art is deemed subjective; therefore one can choose to accept a piece as art or to reject it. That being said, it seems that in 2016, the most on-trend art to hang on your walls is within the abstract category. Clearly to some, this form of art is not art at all. In fact, it uses color, shapes, and lines to a certain degree of independence from things portrayed in the world. Nonetheless, the beautiful shapes and colors still make for a pretty accent to hang in your home! Basically, abstract art is having a moment this year – with a few specifications that is. The most popular themes are the following:

Blue shades: Art in blue hues seems to be in high demand, and rightfully so, because of its peaceful & serene nature. Try picking an abstract piece with different shades, in order to maximize the soothing feeling and your possibilities to match with the elements in your home.

Patterns: Another popular theme is patterns. Repetitive patterns are also a form of abstract art, and this year these little bursts of pattern are making their way in! If your walls are plain, then patterns will definitely draw the eye. Despite being simplistic artwork, it is definitely a show-stopper!

Statement art: Statement art? I thought abstract art was already making a statement?! A statement piece is one that measure over 5 feet. So when it comes to making a statement, this piece of art will take its fair share of room. 

Let your imagination wander as you stare at the abstract pieces hung in your home. It is the perfect home accent! Each piece is unique and will leave you wondering what the artist was thinking about when he/she came up with the design.

Bedroom Sets: Mix & Match

Bedroom Sets: Mix and Match:
Did you know that the average person spends 33% of their lifetime sleeping? This statistic is based on 8 hours of sleep per day. That being said, if you spend one third of your lifetime in yourbedroom, then why not make it into a beautiful retreat and comfortable haven? So how exactly are you supposed to achieve a look that reflects peace and tranquility? Opt for neutral tones and gorgeous natural materials. In fact, here are a few propositions to help paint you a picture!
The Maribel B138 Panel Bed features a beautiful relaxed cottage design with an urban appeal. The details along the scalloped top and base are bathed in a rich black finish, to create an earthy aesthetic.  This is an exemplary piece of how to transform your bedroom décor into an inviting atmosphere. 
Who said that bedroom furniture needed to be matchy-matchy and from the same collection? Mixing furniture pieces from different collections can be just as delightful! The Charlowe B013-191 nightstand pairs beautifully with the panel bed, as it enhances the dark undertones found in the grain of the planks. The vintage charm of this piece, along with the distressing marks fit well with the casual cottage design of the bed.

Finally, who can forget a staple piece in the bedroom, the dresser! The Emerfielddresser features a chic farmhouse style which would work well from a country cottage to an urban city loft. The lovely two-tone finish and weatherworn appeal will add a bit of warmth to all the black hues paired together with all the pieces. In addition, the round metal hardware echoes the vintage-inspired look as seen on the nightstand.

As you can see, the edgy blend of these three pieces from separate collections is an argument well disputed – that random pieces can be put together to create a well-harmonized bedroom style.

Boys Bedroom Sets

Boy’s Bedroom:
Is your little tyke growing up to be quite the young man? Every parent wants to offer their little boy a space that is a reflection of their personality and interests. At this point, your son has outgrown his toddler-sized furniture and is ready to embrace a more mature look in his bedroom. Planes, trains, trucks and toys, there’s nothing quite like little boys! That being said, transform your son’s room with that boyhood spirit he has always wanted! The idea is to try to combine his interests with practicality and quality, so that his furniture can last… until he reaches his tween years of course!

If you’re looking to change his bed, then you do not have one of those transformable cribs that can go from a crib to a daybed, and even a double bed! If your son had a toddler bed, then he likely outgrew it a while ago, and so you need something a little more mature-looking to mesh well with the new bedroom theme. Among the favorites for little boys are bunk bedsloft beds and trundle beds which are awesome for sleepovers. They are fun, functional and provide great storage!

Next, you need a dresser. Once you’ve chosen the bed, you can take a look at the matching dresser. However, if bedroom space is an issue, then a tall dresser is the better choice. You can still have loads of storage, but in a vertical manner.

At this point, the little guy is not likely to get any homework assignments, but you can always opt for a desk as a craft station. That way you can tame the mess and keep it local! Eventually, he will get homework anyway!

Last, but not least, the nightstand is a must for his bedside. It’s less likely to be a piece that is emphasized in a nursery set, but now you can get the matching nightstand for his new set. Aside from being handy for extra storage, he can use it to display home décor such as a table lamp, frames and an alarm clock.

The September Equinox

The Autumnal Equinox: A Great Time For Lighting Your Home

As you know, the autumnal equinox is an astronomical event that occurs once yearly in which the Earth orbits around the sun. At that moment, the sun crosses the celestial equator, in order to enter the sky’s northern hemisphere. It is said that after this event, days and nights are almost the same length. However, this also means that days are shorter than in periods of solstice, which in turn requires more lighting. Therefore, this is the perfect timing to ensure that your home is well-lit in the absence of daylight. Let’s take a closer look at some stylish and efficient light fixtures for your home:

1)      Floor lamps:
The floor standing lamp is a traditional fixture that comes in different shapes and designs. It is a great way to add style & ambiance to a room, since they do not cover as much ground. This fixture is perfect for a living room, as it can serve well for reading or lighting the room while enjoying your favorite tv shows.

2)      Pendant light:
A pendant light fixture is one that hangs from the ceiling by means of a cord, chain or rod. It usually includes one to several lightbulbs that are not combined into one single unit. The beauty of this fixture-type is that you can find many styles, colors, and even textures! From vintage-inspired glass, to industrial metal and a casual organic weave, a pendant light fixture will bring a unique accent to your room.

3)      Table lamps:
The table lamp is yet another classic. This lamp will ensure that any table in your home has perfect lighting. It is the ultimate measure to fine-tune your atmosphere in a room, whether you need extra lighting or want to dim the room. They come in a number of shapes, sizes and colors. From bold to muted, you will not have any difficulty finding your desired look.

Choosing a light fixture has become less mundane, as today’s wide selection will not only help you achieve a well-lit room, but also give you an abundance of style options.
