This week’s Friday Faux Pas is a frightful fireplace feature. Although in fairness it’s not the only frightful feature of this poor， unfortunate， room! We’ll overlook the blatantly obvious miss placed pieces of the scheme， such as the bright pink bicycle and the shoes on the hearth， in the hopeful assumption that they have just been left temporarily and are not an intended part of the overall decor scheme？
Everything is wrong in herebed pillow covers， from the clash of the two miss matched greens on the fireplace wall， to the oversized television， the eclectic or rather jumbled mix of furniture styles， the overwhelming amount of bric-a-brac and clutter and thedare I say it？.plastic flowers!accent pillow case baby
OK， so I accept the fact that our homes are our spaces where we are free to be ourselves， express ourselves and surround ourselves with the things that we like and treasure the most， but there are better ways of doing it than this. The main accessories in a room should be kept to three or four main， coordinated， key pieces and any other collections， souvenirs and trinkets should be displayed or grouped together in a dedicated place such as a display cabinet or stylish shelving unit.
The TV unit seems to take centre stage in most of our homes these days and they seem to be getting bigger and bigger. This one is bigger than the actual fireplace and causes an uncomfortable imbalance and asymmetry which further adds to the confusion and lack of creative layout in this room. If you want to go big with your television then try and get it off the floor and on to a wall as a well placed and though about feature.
If you must have artificial flowers then make them authentic and convincing， high quality， silk ones and go for a group of three or four large， heady， blooms in a statement vase – anything but plastic please! In complete contrast to the overcrowded and fussy fireplace in our image， here’s a state of the art model which incorporates fire and TV in one stylish， streamlined and fuss free unit.
The tailor's knot is the best and easiest sewing knot that you can make. This technique was taught to me at school in 7th grade, and I have been using it ever since. I'm not a a big fan of hand sewing, but it's an essential thing if you want to make a professional hem with invisible stitches or if you need to close small openings on the linings of a handmade purse. Whenever I do any hand sewing, making this knot is the first step.
This is a “look-alike” scarf for my fem 4th Doctor cosplay and I have made a few alterations to make it look more in character. Additionally, this is a no crochet, no knitting method so it does not have the large woven scarf look of the iconic classic Who character. However! :) It is not as heavy and is made of lighter material, which is a HUGE plus as I frequent conventions during the summer. I have adapted my pattern from doctorwhoscarf.com and converted the rows of yarn into inches so I could measure my fabric. This a great project for people just learning to use a sewing machine since there are no complicated stitches. If you need some help getting started using your sewing machine, check out this very helpful introduction: WikiHow to Use a Sewing Machine Though I would also recommend consulting your sewing machine owner’s manual. If you do not have one, do a web search for “owner’s manual” with the name and model number of your machine.
When it comes to interior design ideas, it is easy to get excited about redoing a living area or kitchen yet most people lose interest when it comes to the bedroom. However, it is possible to give your bedroom a completely new look with the minimum of effort and fuss. Simply using existing elements coupled with complementary bedding or creating a focal point in your bedroom can breathe new life into your boring boudoir. You don't need to make significant structural changes to completely change the atmosphere and make your bedroom a place you can truly sit back and relax.
