Cozy Home For Fall

cozy-fall-fireplace-mantel-decorating-ideas_2

There is a chill in the air and suddenly it’s no longer summer. It’s time to decorate your home in Fall colours and to update your home to reflect the warmth of the season. Fall décor is all about natural accents, warm colours and comfort with neutral, earth-like tones and soft fibers.

 

We’re going to give you some ideas about how you can change up your home without blowing up your budget so you can enjoy it in the colder months. As you sip pumpkin spice lattes, you can touch up your home with some seasonal inspiration.

 

Bring the Outdoors Inside

You’re probably thinking that it’s too cold to be outside—let alone bring the outside in. Fall colours are the most beautiful of any season: the oranges, reds, and yellows can really make your home lively and enjoyable. You can bring in dried flowers and place them in vases at different heights, placing them around your home.  You can also decorate your dining room table with pumpkins, squash, figs, pine cones, birch, and apples. If you feel especially inspired, you can even add pumpkin-scented candles.

 

Add a Rug to Your Home

With natural earth-tones, adding some area pastel-coloured rugs can accent your room elegantly. Consider a beautiful long hall rug for the Fall and Winter to greet your visitors. A wall-to-wall carpet can be a great addition, although more costly and disruptive if you have to renovate. The fabric softness combined with an eye-catching blend of neutral tones gives the rug a comforting appeal that will fit right in this season.

 

Use the Fireplace as a Focal Point

With the cold temperatures, you can accent the fireplace mantel with Fall colours and representations for the season. The fireplace, don’t forget, is a perfect gathering spot for friends and family so don’t forget to check it for safety issues and hazards. You might want to get it professionally cleaned before you light it up for the first time this Fall. They can be a hazard if neglected.

 

Change the Curtains

Next to paintings, curtains are the easiest thing to switch up. It’s a good idea to add heavier curtains that trap the heat inside the house and assist with energy costs. Curtains are a great way to change up a room with minimal effort.

 

Adding Throw Pillows and Blankets

Pillows always make your home more comfortable. Consider adding a couple of throw pillows and blankets of various textures to your living room to give it that extra homely feel. Incorporating faux fur or wool for a cohesive yet complex look.

 

If there’s one thing that makes saying goodbye to summer easier, it the thought of Fall decorating. We hope you have some new ideas and some inspiration for the coming months.  This time of year, we naturally crave cozy and warmth and a great place to read a good book and a bottle of wine while the season’s change.

 

 

What To Expect At IDS West 2016

This week, in Vancouver it is the Interior Design Show (IDS) West, the biggest interior Design event in Vancouver, with 7,000 designers, architects, and other industry professionals. Over three-and-a-half days, and close to 40,000 people in attendance, it will showcase the distinct Pacific West Coast style.

IDS West was launched in 2004 under the original name Design Vancouver to celebrate West Coast professionals and emerging talent. It was originally modeled after the Toronto Interior Design Show but since then has taken a life of its own.

The show has grown in size ever since its inception and has some of the biggest names in design. You can check out the fabulous exhibitors and speakers HERE. We are always blown away at the talented designers Vancouver has who will be on display at IDS West. From popular trends, prototypes, to limited edition pieces, the IDS Show has all things design, not just locally but internationally as well.

We are using IDS West in Vancouver to celebrate and highlight everything in Vancouver as we go into fall. Colour is a big theme this season and is critical to any part of interior design. The right palette can brighten up a dull, lifeless room and change the atmosphere for energizing and vibrant, to peaceful and serene.

At Rosewood Home and Condo, we are happy to tell you about the latest trends in interior design, both in Vancouver and around the world. Designers understand the impact of design and colour choices which you’ll see at this year’s IDS West.

Every year, trending colours in furniture and design change. This year, interior design is about maximizing Fall colours to really draw the eye and accentuate the furniture choices in your home. While new combinations are making their debut, old favourites will be returning to IDS West as well. Shades from natural sources like warm rosy colours, to shades of pink and romantic colours are popular this year.

At IDS West, we predict you’ll likely see a lot of opposite colours, for example modern metallic coupled with calmer hues like bright yellow or orange. Pastel colours like soft blue, pink, and orange are also big in the fall and great for family rooms or bedrooms. This is a very modern style that has appeared in Vancouver only recently.

At Rosewood we specialize in a modern look, coupled with well-made, solid wooden furniture. We cater to middle-class Canadians, and especially Vancouverites, who want a balance between affordability and quality. We understand Vancouver is an expensive city to live in, especially with the housing prices, so we made our products both high-end, yet affordable to Vancouverites on a tight budget.

We are inspired by the workmanship of the Rajasthani carpenters who pass their skills on generation from generation and the Indian Rosewood, also known as Sheesham. It is a species of Rosewood from India and Bangladesh, and it is extremely dense and therefore sturdy, strong, and long-lasting.

If you’re inspired by IDS West, come check out our 7,000 square-foot showroom and see a vast selection of both contemporary and modern furniture with styles ranging from minimalist to rustic as well as retro. We are giving Interior Designers 10% for a limited time only.

How to: Make your bed like Professionals

Is there anything better than climbing into a crisp, fresh, impeccably-made bed? Here at Rosewood, we don’t think so. In this blog post, we’re going to reveal how we create our beautiful beds, and some tips on how to best decorate and maintain them.

How to make your bed

Make your bed like professionals

To Count or Not To Count? That is the Question

A modern bed should look tailored, neat, and inviting. In North America a bed linen quality is often associated with thread count which is the density of the bed linen fibers. While this is helpful, it doesn’t take account the entire picture. For example, a low thread count doesn’t necessarily mean poor quality sheets. We recommend you also look at what the linen is made of, and how the material feels against your body.

Layers Upon Layers

If your bed style doesn’t require a skirt, you can skip this step, though you may want to invest in a box-spring cover if it is exposed. However, if you’re using a bed skirt, center it in place, making sure the edges are even at the foot and sides. Use small, unobtrusive pins to secure it in place.

Tuck the fitted sheet tightly. For the best fit, use an extra-deep sheet, especially if you have a pillow-top or a tall mattress – otherwise a standard size should work fine. Pull it taut and tuck the edges beneath the mattress. As with the mattress pad, corner fasteners can keep the sheet from creeping inward.

Duvet and duvet cover size are different from bed size. This may seem confusing, but actually makes sense. Just remember, when it comes to duvets and duvet covers, queen and double are considered the same size. The difference between a queen mattress and a double is about 6 inches. This means the duvet is only going to be about 3 inches longer on each side of the double bed than it is on the queen.

A Bed’s Foundation

Frames are one of the most important aspects to consider and it is what gives your bed flare. There are many ways of dressing the bed – tucked/ military style, full and luxurious – but certain bed frames lend themselves better for certain dressing methods. A bed frame without a footboard is well-suited for the tuck/military style method of dressing the bed. This is also known as the hospital bed. A bed frame with a footboard that is higher than the side railing looks best when the duvet is either tucked at the end or the sides are left loose.

Personalize Your Bed

Pillows are like window dressing and are best used to accent the bed with a flourish of style and colour. There are many options to consider. Pillow shams have a 2-inch border made more for decoration than for practicality, and the opening is usually hidden in the middle of the back. Pillow shams are typically used to hide the wrinkled, flat pillows you sleep on when the bed is made up – though some people choose to sleep on them as well.

Another option is the accent cushions which are a simple decoration and give the bed a sophisticated look. A word of warning, however: do not overdo it with pillows. Too many pillows will overwhelm the eye and take away from the bed frame and linen, giving it a messy, cluttered look.

The Finishing Touches  

Take care of your bed linen as you would a dress shirt or suit. Follow the package instructions that come with your linen set and duvet cover. To help prevent a brightly coloured duvet from fading, send it to the drycleaners. If you want a crisp look, iron the sheets and duvet covers before you make the bed. A standard ironing board is too small to handle sheets with ease — cover an inexpensive folding table, or a large sheet of plywood, with heatproof foam to give you more surface area to work with. Don’t forget the bed skirt and shams while you’re at it.

Hopefully we have given you some great ideas on how to do bed and you can implement some of them in your own home. If you’re looking for more, come visit our fabulous showroom and talk to us to learn more about bedding and furniture.

Of all hardwoods, mahogany, cherry, maple, walnut, oak and teak are popular for their quality as furniture. Nevertheless, maple and cherry are best known because they are so difficult to craft than the rest.  You could basically choose hardwood according on their furniture style, appearance, budget and even personal preference. Take for instance, on cherry. You can distinguish that it is a cherry wood through it reddish brown color. This is a good option when you want something that could resist swelling, shrinking and even warping. On the other hand, you can identify that it is a maple wood if their color is light beige or tan. But unlike cherry, it is really difficult to carve for details.   There are still lots of hardwoods available. Make sure that you will do  you research about them  prior on buying.

Check its Composites

Plywood is an example of it.  They are typically tan to white. These are several layers of some thin wood sheets which are pressed and  glued together. They are resistant and strong into warping, swelling and shrinking.

But there are instances that particleboard are being used which ranges  from light down to medium brown.  They are basically made out of  small wood chips, sawdust as well as resin which are being mixed well together.  This is one of the elements of an affordable furniture  covered by veneers or laminates.
