S.A.D. Treatment for Your Home

light therapyDuring the winter our decorating drifts towards sumptuous fabrics, heavy woods and jewel tones.  During this particularly horrendous winter in North America, record numbers are suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder or at the very least “cabin fever”.

By staring into light filled chambers we can trick our brain out of depression.  It follows then that by “lightening up” our interior surroundings we may raise our spirits and give ourselves a “lift”.

Replace that heavy coffee table with an airy basket weave ottoman and or side table.

Change out the pillows on your sofa to the new on trend spring tones of mustard yellow,bottle green, coral or teal.  If you are bent on staring into a bright light for treatment how about getting one with a colourful base, like the green one pictured below??

The Bradshaw Bedding Collection at Glam Vintage & Moderne

If you want to fall asleep with a clear conscience, buying quality bedding made in North America should help.  This bed accessory grouping is actually “Made in Chicago” from  fabrics with honest material contents by equitably paid employees.  There are several styles and fabric choices as well as a full range of accessories way beyond toss cushions and Bradshaw Ottomandrapes including coordinating bed steps (for the vertically challenged including the furry kind) and ottomans.

Richard is stocking limited quantities of the collections he is currently showing but you can drop in to Glam to view the entire catalogue and order from any of the Eastern Accents Collections.

If knowing that you have purchased a quality product from a reputable supplier doesn’t help you sleep I recommend 5mg of melatonin and reading the first page of the Income Tax Act.  Nighty night.

Making your Bed can be Beautiful

Modern Bed SetSome modern duvets and pillows look fresh in a sloppy sort of way.  It’s like the big puffy duvet won’t lie down to create a level tidy surface. Then the shammed pillows are usually just laying there all crinkly and flat.  This really has a style I’ll call “dormitory”.   Real men tend to embrace this look.

We are all grownups here and I think it’s time to confine this look to the kids room or cottage.  In the new year I resolve to make my bed beautiful.

Richard has a great new Australian bedding supplier!  Exciting colour ways at affordable prices.  Also he’s still got some stock in luxurious Eastern Accents bedding on sale (see my earlier blog about this).

Upgrading my boudoir style from “dorm” to “sophisticated” is now possible and probable…(but it takes 2 to keep the bed made)
