    Sometimes the smallest of changes can make a huge difference in the way your room appears. Here are 10 easy ways to give your room a makeover without having to go through the hassle of completely redoing it.

     

    Clear the mess:

    The first, most important thing to do when considering giving your room a makeover is to clear the clutter. Getting organizers, removing the mess, clearing out space and arranging everything in a proper way, is the way to begin redecorating your room.

     

    Add a touch of green:

    pots

    Adding a plant in your room gives it a freshness and vibrancy that changes the feel of your interiors. It brings energy and life into your room and brightens up the ambiance. If you don’t have a green finger, adding artificial greens will also help.

     

     Rearrange the cushions:

    A few cushions of different shapes and sizes can add color and character to the room. Different patterns and bright colors can go a long way in changing the feel of the interiors.

     

    Rearrange the furniture:

    It is amazing how just rearranging what is already there can change the whole feel of your room. Play around with the way your furniture is set up. Remove the rug, change the placement of your bed side table, move your bed a little and your room will have a whole new feel.

     

    Cover the blank walls:

    Adding a few paintings or pictures to cover up the blank walls in your rooms can make a huge difference. Graphic prints are another option that can be considered. The way you decorate your room speaks about you as a person and adding art or photographs to your wall can make a huge difference to your interiors.

     

     Change knobs and handles:

    Replace your old boring handles on drawers and almirahs with quirky, decorative ones. The little pop of colour will add a whole new dimension to your room.

     

     Don’t be scared to experiment:

     Not everything in your room must match. It gets rather dull and boring, when everything matches. You can experiment and play around with the color and patterns. There need not be a particular color scheme at play. Having fun while doing up your room is the best way to give it a makeover.

     

    Accessorize your room:

    vases for room

    Add a vase to your room. Put some frames on your table. Decorate the little trinkets you have been saving up and give your room a whole new feel and vibrancy to it.

     

    Play with the curtains:

     The curtains give a lot of character to a room. Changing the curtains or experimenting with them can do a lot to change the feel of the room.

     

    Experiment with the lighting:

    Ambient lighting goes a long way in changing the feel and atmosphere of a room. Adding a few candles, or a new lampshade will change the essence of the interiors.

  • EASY RECYCLABLE DIY HOME DECOR CRAFTS

    Posted on by Halo Themes

    DIY Home decor

    With the present condition of our planet recycling is hugely important to sustain and take care of it. However, our efforts to recycle need not be restricted to the government, the municipal authorities or waste management companies. We as individuals can also contribute and help and have fun while doing so. There are awesome and creative ways to recycle your old stuff which you can take advantage of.

    Every time we clean our house we wind up with a lot of stuff that we simply throw out without reconsidering that it can be reused and recycled to make something useful. Sometimes trash is not just trash, and it can be transformed and used in a million other ways. And if you can’t make something useful out of your old stuff, you can still probably make something beautiful!

    Being committed and responsible towards caring for your environment and planet is the duty of every individual and we should all do our bit towards it. Here is one way you can use waste to transform it into something useful.

    DIY vases from old bottles: 

    Did you recently have a house party and have a lot of bottles lying around? Transform your trash into beautiful vases that you can use to decorate your house.  There is nothing more satisfying than being able to create something using waste.

    Things you would need:

    • A few bottles, or mason jars
    • Warm soapy water
    • Acrylic paints
    • Newspaper
    • Syringe
    • Bowls

     First of all, start by collecting all the bottles. The more variety you have in terms of shapes and sizes the more you can experiment and play around.

    Recycled bottles

    Soak the bottles in warm soapy water and give them a good wash. Remove all the labels and stickers that are on the bottle.

    diy projects

    In a bowl mix some acrylic paint with a little bit of water. Take a syringe and fill it with the paint. Empty the paint in the bottle and spread it coating all the sides evenly.

    diy crafts

    When all the sides of the inside of the bottle have been covered evenly in paint, turn the bottle upside down and leave it to dry. All the excess colour will drip away and the bottle will be evenly coated.

    recycling old bottles

    Once the bottles have all been painted in the same or assorted colours according to your preference, they can be used as vases.

    We hope you enjoy making these vases. Jute ropes, motifs,etc,can be used to decorate the vases further. Let your creativity guide you in enjoying this process of creating something useful and beautiful.

  • ACCESSORIES - SIMPLEST WAY OF GIVING YOUR HOME A MAKEOVER

    Posted on by Halo Themes

    Accessories

    While choosing accessories one must keep in mind the palette of the room. An empty room is a story waiting to happen, and you are the author. The accessories can be bold or subtle but they must compliment the general ambiance of the room. More is not always better. Sometimes simple, elegant accessories do the trick.

    To add a touch of color and freshness to your house, plants are a brilliant option. However, maintaining them isn’t always easy and practical. Artificial plants are available in plenty and add a lot to your homes. A pop of green is always refreshing and relaxing. You can choose from this collection available exclusively at Plüsch Décor.

    plants

    Pictures, collectibles from various trips, trinkets and souvenirs add a personal touch to your interiors. Your memories, if displayed properly make the space more your own and add warmth and comfort to it. Selecting appropriate frames for pictures, and tastefully decorating your collectibles, gives a whole new feel to you home.

    vases

    Side-tables are a very important accessory. A flower vase on a side table, adds a touch of color and accentuates the beauty of the place. Vases are available in various shapes and sizes. Hence, using a single vase or even a combination of a few vases to create a centre table arrangement looks very elegant. The flower arrangement should complement the shape and color of the vase. At times, however if a combination of vases is used the need to add flowers doesn’t arise as the vases themselves form an installation. Plüsch Décor offers a wide range of flower vases that will go exceedingly well with every interior.

    Vases

     Lighting is a very important aspect of decorating your house. Apart from the electrical lights, candles go a long way in adding to the mood and feel of your interiors. Also the subtle light of the candles adds an old-world charm. Using aromatic candles can help in changing the atmosphere of the house as the aromas soothe and relax the mind. At Plüsch décor a range of candle holders are available for you to choose from.

  • BASICS TO DRINKING WINE

    Posted on by Halo Themes

    Wine Drinking

     

    “I love how wine continues to evolve, how every time I open a bottle it’s going to taste different than if I had opened it on any other day. Because a bottle of wine is actually alive – it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks – like your ’61 – and begins its steady, inevitable decline.” -Virginia Madsen as Maya in Sideways

     Every time you pour in a glass of wine it’s an amazing trip somewhere. Wine is just not a bottle of fermented goodness; it is a learning experience in itself! Well, are you a lover of the classic full bodied red Cabernet sauvignon, or have a taste for the light and sweet flavour of Chenin Blanc? It’s all about this magical drink and the mystical journey it takes you through!

    Wine comes with its own set of complexities and rules. If not respected, it might not treat you with the all love!So, here we will help you with important rules to keep in my mind, every time you pour yourself a glass!

    Shape matters 

    A proper glass will make any wine taste better. It’s about choosing the right glassware for the right wine!

    White wine-

    White Wine Glasses.

     

    White wines are usually served in smaller bowled glasses. This is because it helps to preserve the floral aromas and also help maintain the cooler temperature. The smaller bowled glasses help deliver more aromas even better. Giving a quirky twist to it, Plüsch has an exclusive range of white wine glasses for you to choose from!

    Red Wine -

    Red Wine Glass

    Typically Red wine glasses are a bit taller and have a larger bowl than the white wine glasses. In general, Red wines are bigger and bolder wines so they require a larger glass to allow all those complex aromas and flavors to emerge. Setting aside the typical classic glasses Plüsch has alternatives to jazz up your red wine sessions!

    Serving at the right temperature 

    Wine has a complex chemistry that changes with temperature. The purpose of having the right serving temperature is to release the best possible aromatics in the glass without ruining its taste.

    Wine

    The optimal serving temperature for Red wines should be between 62-68 degrees. Whereas, white wines probably served between 49-55 degrees.

    Pouring a standard serving 

    Wine Pouring

    Pouring the right amount of wine should be taken care of as we also like to have enough room to swirl and sniff it without splashing it all over the place, which could happen easily if the glass is too full. The glassware from Plüsch is artistically designed to let your wine bring out its perfect aroma! Usually, a standard bottle of wine contains just over 25 ounces so it’s common to see it measured out into five-5 ounce (150 ml) per serving.

    How do you hold your glass of wine? 

    Wine holding

     

    Holding a wine glass like a wine connoisseur? So, once you pour in your drink, how do you mange to handle the top heavy glass? You might hold it between your thumb and forefingers or pinch at the stem or the base. Well, there are various social ways to hold your glass. However, all stemmed glasses (red, white) are generally to be held towards the base of the stem between the thumb, forefinger and middle finger. The other fingers will just rest on the base naturally.

    Now that you know the essentials of drinking your favourite beverage almost to its perfection, next time you pour yourself a bottle, check out some fascinating wine glasses at Plüsch Décor and elevate your drinking experience!
