Your Bedroom Makeover with Phyllis Kotzer

Category: General

Sit back for a moment, close your eyes and imagine the most comforting retreat possible. Better yet, remember the best hotel suite you’ve ever been in or the nicest bedroom you’ve seen in a decor magazine. Now ask yourself this, “What do I love most about this space?” Was it the sent in the air, the fresh flowers, the willowy wallpaper, or the billowy bed topper? Was it the softness of the sheets, the downy comfort of the pillows, or the vibrant pattern of the bed cover? Perhaps it was a little bit of everything.

Rest assured in knowing that you can have it all!  Design is in the details and the best place to start is by choosing one detail at a time. When doing so, keep the following pointers in mind:

1. Be sure to blend comfort and fashion with your own personal style.

2. Pick soft, relaxing colours for your walls so they act as a clean canvas and allow your bedding to become the artwork of the room. A neutral wall will also give you the ability to replace your bedding to match your mood or the change of seasons. With this key step you’ll become your own inner diva decorator with the flexibility to choose new “art” for your bed over and over.

3. Once your bed is the focal point of the room decorate outwards, upwards to the ceilings, and downwards to the floor with key accent pieces that are both visually appealing and highly functional.

4. Mix and marry your favourite shapes and designs with pillows, accent furniture, and most importantly lighting! Be sure to incorporate ambient lighting, accent lighting, and task lighting into your decor plan so you can read, relax, and rejuvenate with optimal lighting for each.

5. Your bedroom will always be your favourite room in the house if you move around small accents and soft furnishings every few months. This will keep your bedroom fresh and exciting!

Now all you have to do is rest your head down on the most comfortable pillow, curl up with your softest sheets and your favourite duvet or comforter and you’ll have the most restful sleeps and sweetest dreams!

Spring cleaning, organizing and storing!

Spring is a time of year often associated with fresh starts and new beginnings-hence the common practice of SPRING CLEANING!

Who doesn’t love the smell of a clean house and the sense of rhyme and rhythm in a home? The feeling of being organized, clean and orderly is a great one and is the reason why so many are accustom to this yearly tradition.

If you are one of these spring cleaners here is a list of items available at The Shopping Channel that will help you not only CLEAN, but ORGANIZE and STORE this spring!

Visually Appealing storage:

The best way to organize yourself is to CATEGORIZE your belongings. Our set of three Muarry Faux Leather Storage Boxes will help group like items in your home. They come in different sizes along with a decorative print which makes them great to store in a closet or out where the eye can see!

Take the process one step further and use a home printer to create neat and professional looking labels for each box. We suggest printing labels on our Canon MX882 Wireless All In One Inkjet Printer. Attach the label to the outside of a storage box so you’ll know what’s inside without having to open the lid!

When it comes to storing the countless remote controls in your living room, use our Brown Faux Leather Remote Control Storage Box to keep these handy tools close by yet discreetly hidden. Use the photo insert to add a personal decorative element to the room.

Functionality:

A happy home is a functional home where the most commonly used items can be found easily and quickly. Our Household Essentials 4-Tier Revolving Shoe Tree will be a stable home for up to 24 pairs of shoes and will help keep your doorway clear. To accommodate a closet’s shelving, the tiers’ height are adjustable and feature a revolving wire rack to help you find your shoes when you’re rushing out the door!

Workable Space:

Doing the laundry for an entire household is a tall order that requires professional tools to get the job done right the first time! Create workable space in your laundry room with our Westex Corner Valet. This pole holds up to 44 hangers which create the ideal space to clean, dry, steam and organize your laundry.
