Decorating Ideas for Today’s Home
Exciting things are happening in the field of home decor. Our favorite home decor trends involve, technology, color and do it yourself (D.I.Y). Let’s start with technology. Google just bought NEST for 3.2 Billion. The ears of all of us in the home decorating field perked up when we heard that. NEST is a high tech company that allows you to manage your home from your smart phone. Imagine. Your smart phone may even do the decorating soon. So far they are just managing things like your alarm system. So you still need online stores like ours to find your home decor essentials like decorative pillows and rugs and mats. No doubt the electronic decorator is on the way, but until then we hope you will shop with us, for bedroom decor, bathroom decor, home accents and gifts.
Color is another thing we concern ourselves with at Decorative Things, so the decor in the recent movie Her is something that truly really impressed us. The rooms in the movie all had orange décor. Joaquin Phoenix and his costars even wore orange clothing. Although we never see her and only hear her voice, the biggest star of the movie is Scarlett Johansen, the “Operating System” and she is in an orange case. Throughout the movie, the idea of unified color décor is the point as opposed to orange interiors. Color is an easy and inexpensive way to change a room or update your home. It does not matter what color scheme you choose for your décor, but the idea of a unified color theme can be quite striking and efficient.
Speaking of color, the recent exhibition of knitted flowers at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens was a stunning display of fabric flowers and D.I.Y. decor. We do not sell knitting goods, but our decorative fabrics are an excellent way to exercise your urge for D.I.Y home decor. Our fabrics for upholstery curtains and drapes allow you to pick a color and transform a room into your signature color overnight with slipcovers. For an even simpler transformation, use some of our decorative throw pillows as accents for your sofa, couch or bed to gussie things up.
Customizable items like party supplies for party decor from paper hand towels to beverage napkins are very much the rage now. Our convenient personalized hand towels are in stock with all the letters of the alphabet. Pretty soon we will be launching some very, very exciting new custom decorative accessories using 21st Century methods of production that boggle the mind so stay tuned.
