Add a Colorful Impact with Throw Pillows

Add a Colorful Impact with Throw Pillows

It is amazing how much adding just one or two accessories can perk up a room, tie together a theme or just add a contrasting color. Personally, I love color, the more the better. So I have chosen some of my favorite throw pillows to show you what I mean. These pillows come in two sizes and in other shapes as well. You can pick the ones that I have listed on this page or you can click through these links and find completely different ones to decorate your home. Either way, adding one or two of these will make your room come alive. And they are comfortable to take a nap on.

Many people decorate a room in neutrals, then use throw pillows and other accessories to change their decor seasonally. You can do this for each holiday, time of year, or just because. So click through these links to see these and learn the details or create your own.

Dragonflies are so beautiful and ethereal it is no wonder people like to create home decor around them. This page shows you how to decorate with a dragonfly theme. Whether you want to redecorate one room or more than one, or just introduce some dragonfly accents, I have something featured here for you.

Dragonfly Decorative Theme Ideas

Ideas for creating the right dragonfly look by decorating the walls

Ceramic wall tiles

Dragonflies

For bathrooms and kitchens add some ceramic tiles in relevant places, for example, as splash-backs. Use only 2 or 3 decorated ones mixed in with plain colored ones for maximum effect. As you can see from just this small sample, you have no color restrictions to worry you. Pick your favorite tile then use the colors in it for background color and in decor accents for a dramatic effect.

Decorate and Paint with Dragonfly Colors - Choosing

You are spoilt for choose in dragonfly colors - some look simple, blue or green or red, but if you look at a lot of them you will see how many dragonflies have multiple colors and incidentally, different textures, which you can introduce into decorating ideas.

The colors. Just like butterflies, dragonflies come in range of colors from soft pastels to bold and vibrant colors. You can find dragonflies in red and pink, fuchsia and orange, blue and saffron, gold and emerald, black browns and every shared shade you can think of. Added to that the metallic sheen of some and you have plenty of colors to choose from for you color scheme. Dragonfly wings can be translucent, simply transparent or they may be colored, spotted or banded. Generally the ones with clear wings tend to have vibrant colors on their body and tail. This pretty little thing gives us loads of ideas. It has pinks, purples, red, orange and blue and metallic grey or blue in the wings.

Dragonfly Perched on Edge of a StickDragonfly Perched on Edge of a Stick

Dragonflies have a delicate, ethereal look to them that lends well to a themed decor. Just echoing dragonfly tones against a pastel background creates a great effect. Pick out one of tbe contrasting jewelled metallic tones as a block color in curtains, throws or bedding to bring out the theme. Your carpeting can be somewhere in between your pastel walls and bold accents. You are gradually creating your room. And introduce different textures like satin and lace to represent alternately the body and wings.

&

&

For example, note how dragonfly here looks green but you will also note there is a red spot, subtle orange on the neck and the wings look dark. You could then paint the walls of your room a matching green and use red and orange accents - then introduce the texture of the wings with lace.

Many species change color as they mature, or may vary as the temperature changes. Females may be differently colored from males. All dragonflies emerge with barely any color, although hints of the adult pattern may be visible.

One of the most fascinating things about dragonflies and color is that they can appear to change color depending on the light. What may seem like transparent wings turn iridescent in sunlight.

Dragonfly themed decorative borders

For the walls

Once you decide to go for a dragonfly theme decor start off by picking base colors to build on. Look at pictures of dragonflies to pick out a color. It works best with a solid block color - a pastel shade that you would find in real dragonfly. For accent add a border featuring dragonflies either high up near the ceiling or at dado height.

KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer KSM150 Review

KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer KSM150 Review

KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Stand MixerI have a baking specialty, baking biscotti, and recently I broke my third hand held mixer while making biscotti dough, so I decided it was time to upgrade to more heavy duty stand mixer.  One of the problems with making biscotti is that the dough can be very tough to mix, so a mixer needs to have a lot of power, and also be made for mixing cookie dough with strong beater.  In the past, I have worn out the motors of mixers, and broken beaters.

I wanted to have a mixer that would be long lasting and versatile, so that our family would be able to use it for other cooking projects.  My husband likes to make cookies, and I also like to experiment with making fresh hummus, and other dips.  I had been using my Cuisinart, but it is not ideal.

Since I go through hand held mixers so much, I was willing to invest good money in this new mixer, but I also wanted to get a good deal.  After much thorough research, I decided to buy a KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer from Amazon.

For those of you who know me well, you would have thought that I would buy this mixer in teal or orange, because I am an artist, and I often do buy items in unusual colors to brighten up a room, but I ended up buying the KitchenAid Artisan Mixer in black because it was significantly cheaper, even though there are some really cool colors I could have gotten.

As I already mentioned, my main concern was having a mixer that I could make endless biscotti with, and this was the primary reason that I bought the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer.  This mixer is a 325-watt mixer with 10 speeds so it has the power to withstand the tough biscotti dough.  In addition, it comes with a flat beater and a dough hook which can both be used for mixing the biscotti dough.  I also love the feature of the tilt back head because it makes it so much easier than my old stand mixer to access the bowl, put in ingredients, and split the dough to press into loaves for baking.

Amazingly enough, the KitchenAid Artisan mixer is pretty enough, even in black, to keep out on my kitchen counter, which means that I use it more, and it is easily accessible.  It is definitely built for tough jobs, but can also make whipped cream easily.  This makes the mixer extremely versatile and also hard to break which is a great feature in a household with two teenagers, one with a propensity to break things.

I used to get a sore arm even when mixing the biscotti dough with a hand held mixer because it was tough to keep the mixer in place when I wanted to get to all parts of the bowl.  The KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer not only has the power to hand a double batch of biscotti dough, but it does the work for me, getting to more points on the bowl without tiring my arm out.  It gives a nice even mix too.

I also don't have to worry about breaking the attachments because they are much more heavy duty than the small beaters I had with my other mixers.  There are other additional attachments that you can buy for this mixer from Amazon that do not come with the basic set including a citrus juicer, ice cream maker, food grinder, pasta press, grain mill, rotor slicer/shredder, and extra bowls.

One of the best things you get when you buy any KitchenAid mixers are the support and service of KitchenAid.  KitchenAid is a super company that really stands by its products, and their support department is top notch.  They really take the time to help you work through any problems, or instructions that you do not understand when you first get the mixer.  The most technical detail on this mixer is getting the beater bowl clearance set when you first get it.  But if you can't figure it out yourself, you can call them and they will walk you through the adjustment.  Once the beaters are set correctly, you get perfect mixing.

Another feature that I would like to mention about this mixer, is that it is very simple to attach and remove the various attachements, and to take apart the mixer elements for cleaning.  It is tough to be a neat cook or baker, and mixing cookie dough generally gets it all over the mixer, and the baker.  However, with the 5-quart bowl, that happens less, and the mixer itself cleans up nicely.

In addition to the great price you get for the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer on Amazon, KitchenAid is also offering rebates.  You can get the rebate paperwork when you go onto Amazon to buy the mixer.  A one year KitchenAid warranty comes with the mixer as well.

For more information about the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Mixer, its attachments, colors, and more reviews, you can go directly to the mixer page on Amazon.  This product is definitely a winner for anyone who loves to cook and bake.

Introducing lime green to a kitchen

Lime green is a stunning color on it's own and it blends and contrasts with many other colors - have you thought about lime green and orange for instance - those are bold and stunning together. Or if you prefer something a shade more subtle, go for pastel lime greens and dot only a few accents and accessories around your kitchen. Too much lime green, for example in walls, can close a room in but you can use spots and splashes of this color to really make an impact.

Shades of lime green can differ so be sure you match them to how you want. There is nothing wrong with having a contrast but you might want to pick out one that stands out more than another. Decorate with useful lime green appliances like these set out on the counter as part of your decor idea.

How To Create Wall Stencils: Step By Step Procedure

If you wish to give your room a unique look, you should consider using stencil art. The following steps can help you have the ease in using spray paint stencils.

  1. Prepare the materials that you will need for this project. The essential tools for stenciling include a chalk, stencil adhesive, ruler, stencil brushes, level, kitchen towels, and a palette.
  2. Clean the area where you intend to apply stencil art. Make sure that there is no flaking or loose pain on the surface. If you think that the area needs a fresh coat of paint, allow the surface to dry well. When defining a border or area, mark the area by using a chalk. You can also use a ruler and a level to ensure a straight mark on the wall.
  3. Secure the back portion of the stencil by using stencil adhesives. Press the adhesive firmly against the portion that you marked. Start spraying at the least noticeable section in the room.
  4. Then, pour some stencil paint onto the palette. Dip the sponge lightly into the paint. You can wipe off the excess paint with a kitchen towel. You should try to dot the paint gently, layer by layer, until you have achieved the desired color. If you plan to use multiple colors, wait for the first coating to dry before applying the second color. Make sure that you start painting with the lightest shade. Wash the stencil with warm, soapy water as you change the paint color and when the project is complete.

Airbrush Stencils: Essential Steps and Tips

Airbrushing is one of the methods you can use in applying stencils to walls. This technique produces amazing effects. You can blend the colors and create a fine texture by forcing paint out of a nozzle because of compressed air. Check out these steps on how you can use this medium in applying stencil on your wall.

  1. This project requires you to a few materials such as the airbrush gun, compressor, airbrush paint for walls, hose, paper, stencils, mask, and safety goggles.
  2. Place the stencil on the wall by using tape. Cover the edges of the stencil to prevent mess or over sprayed portions. For sharper edges, you will have to press down the ends of the stencil.
  3. Hold the airbrush gun the way you hold a pen. Then, turn the compressor on and make it a point to depress the trigger when airbrushing.
  4. Push the trigger down to release air, and push it back to release the paint. You may pull back the trigger for more supply of paint, or pull it forward to reduce the amount of paint.
  5. You can try practicing the application of paint on a piece of paper, and consider applying different distances, colors and pressures. This way, you can come up with the preferred effect. When you spray at a far distance, the paint will appear less defined , and it can cover a great surface area. Try to test each paint color on paper, so you can be certain that the color is right. Moreover, this can help you determine if the airbrush gun is functioning properly. Allow the paint to dry on your practice area, so you can find out if you have obtained the kind of color or shade that you want.
  6. Start spraying on the outer portion of the stencil and try to work your way into more shading and detail when necessary. Build up the color until you have achieved the perfect, even tone. When shading, move the color across the stencil, and apply slowly from the exterior portion. You may apply additional coats for dark shades, depending on your ideal color quality.

Tips and Advice On How To Prevent Obstacles in Stenciling

Stencil art requires the right application of paint. Make sure that you avoid applying too much paint on the brush to prevent it from bleeding under the stencil. Excess paint will also make your work appear unsightly and messy.

Practice on white paper before you proceed to painting on the wall, particularly if you have no experience in using an airbrushing tool. Then, use safety devices such as goggles and mask to protect yourself from toxic fumes or fine mist produced when using the airbrush gun. You should also cover surrounding areas with cloth, so these would not be painted accidentally.

Typically, it will take you a few hours to stencil an entire wall depending on the size of the room. Before you start applying stencils, you need to prepare the wall by making it free from loose paint or uneven surface. With the right preparation and application of paint, you can obtain excellent results from this project.
