Traditional red will dominate the Christmas season again this year, but watch for a greater variety of fresh evergreens, berries, roes and accents. Other popular color schemes include darker reds and crimson shades, as well as non_traditional palettes such as purple and turquoise. Textures will continue to play an important role, with flower arrangements featuring everything from pinecones and cedar to intricate handmade ornaments. Expect to see more glass bowls, cubes and vases of every size, especially in colors. With an emphasis on home and hearth, decorator cachepots and family heirloom containers will also play a part.
Involving Your Children in Interior Decorating _ Even if you have little kids, you still probably want to enjoy a beautified home. Of course, completing home decoration projects can be hard to do if children are constantly suspending your work or somehow getting in the way. One way to solve the problem is to get them involved rather than trying to keep them away. If you are doing something that a younger person cannot do, give them a similar project that they are old enough for. These experiences are ones kids (and you) will remember_and you are giving your children an opportunity to take pride in their endeavors. Search the Internet for project ideas you can do with your kids. Using hanging baskets, tall trees, and other large items that cannot be pulled down or messed up is always a good idea.
