The world of interior design these days is big business， you will often have seen many a TV program that features makeovers， normally to a room but sometimes the whole house. Interior designers have to be very creative and have a flair for the utilisation of space， sometimes in very difficult situations， such as small spaces. With the different types of housing that is being built today， interior designers are being consulted more and morepersonalized gifts for kids， their creative talents are sought after.
If you ask an interior designer into your home， they will look at the amount of space available in the room， look at the lighting， the colour scheme you have and look at the balance between the colours of the walls and your furniture. If you have the time and patience， perhaps designing the interior of one of your rooms is something you would like to have a go at. There are many things to consider designing a room， not only the theme， but how you are going to make that theme work.personalized anniversary gifts
There are many avenues for you to explore from going online and getting some interior design ideas， to browsing through the countless web pages that are devoted to interior design. But if you going to have a go at it yourself， you might like to keep in mind， the function of the room， the flow of the room and the focal point of the room. Depending on what type of room you want to makeover these considerations will have to be taken on board， as a living room will have different functions to that say of a dining room or office.
If we consider the focal point， maybe you have a large fireplace， so maybe you will want to place the furniture so that it is orientated towards the fireplace. Maybe you have a large and majestic bay window with impressive views and chic ready made blinds and you want that to be a focal point， whatever your focal point is， take a moment to think about it. Then there comes the flow of a room， can you and other people move about the room easily？
Make a note of where doors open and close， and keep the main route where people move free of large items of furniture， and avoid， as much as you can， cluttering the room； buying rugs direct from a fabric wholesalers is a cost effective way to help create a natural flow and route for people to follow. Look for quality ready made curtains UK， blinds and soft furnishings to help you create an interior design which embraces your creative flair!

Imagine my delight when Clare requested a Peacock-themed party for her 6th birthday. We had some fun handmade ideas but also found many cute peacock products on the market. During our research (a-hem, shopping) we found beautiful items for not only birthday festivities but bridal showers, graduation parties and weddings. Classic peacock motifs don’t seem to be going anywhere soon.Today I’m going to give you a peek at the party. In another post I’ll share all of the product sources. I’m also happy to turn any of the handmade items into a tutorial although everything we did was pretty simple! Just let me know what you would like to know more about in the comments.A few days before the party Clare threw a wrench in the peacock party by requesting a classic “doll” cake. Since I had one for my own sixth birthday and it was one of my favorite birthday memories, I was happy to oblige. I think we pulled in the peacock-theme pretty well. Yes,the peacock princess has a bird on a leash. haOne of Clare’s contributions to the decor was a peacock palace bird house.With our leftover cake batter, I made these easy peacock mini-cupcakes. I really love them. So cute!All of the girls painted and decorated their own birdhouse to take home. I was impress with how hard they all worked on them. I wanted to keep them in a row here on my windowsill.Before the party, Clare took to the craft paper covered table with a peacock feather rubber-stamp. Not only did it add some charm to the tabletop but it helped the birthday girl work out some pre-party gitters.Here the lucky girl in her new peacock feather skirt with lace trim.And here is the poor peacock princess getting her fingers melted off (oops.)In the corner we set up a photobooth and let the girls mug it up with costumes and props. They felt like stars and it ensured that I snapped a pic of each girl with Clare! Of course they are masked so it could become a bit mysterious down the line.Then we played a few classic party games like our Knock ‘Em Down game. Kids love this thing!By combining handmade with store-bought, we saved a little cash and our sanity and created a pretty and fun party to remember. Don’t forget to leave a comment if you want to hear more about these projects and products and I will make sure the info is in the next posts. Happy birthday Clare!
Being a little sister has its challenges, I see that now. Ameli constantly looks up to her sister, imitates her and wants to do the same things. Most of them she can do but there's one she can't - go to preschool. Although she'll start soon, this September wasn't easy for her. Lily went back to school after the summer break and Ameli wanted to join the kids. I wanted to find an idea to make this easier for her, to make her feel like a big girl. And since she likes packing her sisters backpack, I decided to make her a backpack, too.
