In the Montessori classrooms of your youth you remember learning that life is about the process. From the math lessons about units, tens, hundreds, and thousands to the blue and red sensory rods, you learned at the youngest age that it is important to enjoy the process of every educational opportunity. Perhaps it is this beginning that has you so interested in the planning of your wedding. While your mother is sometimes stressed about the meetings to visit ballroom wedding venues, you never tire of looking at the possibilities. With a generous budget from your parents, it does not seem to be the price of the venues that bothers your mother, but the process of looking at another location. She is excited about the dresses and the menus, the guest lists and the seating charts, but she is weary of looking at another ballroom wedding venue.
You, on the other hand, are still excited about every single process of planning your once in a lifetime event.

Studies show that the most popular definitions of a happy home are a space where you feel secure (69 percent), a place for relaxation (64 percent) and a space where you can be free to be yourself (57 percent). When it comes to making a home feel like a home and feel comfortable, interior design is a big reason why.
The interior design industry generates $10 billion annually as homeowners buy living room furniture, do remodeling projects or redecorate to spruce things up in a home. This is especially true of new homeowners. In a 2014 survey, millennial homeowners were just as likely to renovate their homes as other age groups and were driven by a desire to make a newly purchased home their own.
Whether you’re redecorating, renovating or redesigning, here are five tried and true tips to think about when doing interior design in your home.
- Add color: Adding color to a room, whether by adding a new coat of paint or going with a unified color scheme can re
Comfortable seating can make a huge difference in a home. Stiff, uncomfortable furniture might look nice, but it’s not going to emphasize relaxation, which you certainly want in parts of your home. Hard-backed chairs might be fine in the dining room, for example, but if you’re hanging out in the living room or game room, you want to be able to sprawl out and relax. Bean bag chairs — especially huge bean bags or oversized ones — are a fun seating option, especially for kids. They’re a perfect option for a game room, kids’ room, or living room as additional seating. They tend to be less expensive than most chairs and can add a pop of color or different kind of texture to a room as well. And you can bet that every kid who comes into your house will beeline for the bean bag!
Why Bean Bags are Perfect for Video Gamers
Over 150 million people in the United States regularly play video games and four out of five households have a video game console in the house.
One of the joys of becoming a homeowner is finding out all the little things that go wrong in and around your house over the years. Sometimes, things break and need to be replaced. Other times, the house just needs a little bit of a style change. Home improvements are always best when they can be done by the homeowner rather than a third party company that’ll charge an arm and a leg. We’ve compiled a short list of ideas that you might want to take on as your next home renovation project!
1. New Lighting Fixtures
One thing that all homes, big and small, have is lighting. Over time, light fixtures go out of style, light bulbs burn out and sometimes you just feel ready for a change. Whether you decide to outfit the entire house with wrought iron lighting fixtures or just decide to switch out the lights to something more energy efficient, you’ve definitely got options. Wrought iron lighting can be a fantas
You may have heard people speak of the longevity and quality of Amish furniture, but have you considered extending those benefits to fixtures on the outside of your home? If you’re in the market for an outdoor shed, you should consider the benefits an amish built shed.
Amish buildings are constructed with the same astounding quality as their furniture. The care and time dedicated to each piece is something you can’t find with store bought, mass produced sheds. Amish sheds are made to be durable, and withstand the elements better than even the most well manufactured plastic alternatives. This means that even your heaviest tools and machinery can be stored within safely, without the need to worry about them being damaged by the elements, or them doing damage to your shed.
Why Amish Sheds?
One of the first reasons to consider when thinking of purchasing an Amish shed, is the hard work, care, and dedication that is put into each building. That is simply something that
It is difficult to put a finger on what you like most about home ownership. It might be that for the first time in your adult life you do not have a neighbor on the other side of an apartment wall. It might be that you now get to walk from inside your house to a the garage when it is time to leave for work. No scraping of snow, no stepping in puddles. It might be that your rent money is no longer being thrown out that window, but instead you are investing in yourself every time that you make a house payment.
You still remember the nerves when you interviewed realtors for the first time. You felt as if you were taking your adulting game to a whole new level. Talking about down payments, budgeting for a monthly mortgage, and researching interest rates that were available on different kinds of loans. The realtors offered lots of advice, but it was important that you also did your own chec
