How to Add a Modern Touch to Your Home

Has your home become a bit dated? Do you feel uninspired by the interior of your property? If so, it is time for a change - a modern change! It is easier to breathe some modernity into your home than you may think. You don’t have to be creatively inclined in order to give your home a contemporary makeover, as we have some great tips to help you get started.


  • Let there be light - Light is so important in modern decor. Make sure window treatments are light in terms of weight, colour, and texture. Avoid puffy curtains, drapes, and heavy blinds. When an abundance of light fills the room, you will be able to achieve minimalism with greater ease.
  • Stick to the essentials - When it comes to contemporary interiors, only essential pieces of furniture are used and minimal ornamentation, if any. Keep it simple for the desired effect. Not only will this look amazing, but it will be a lot cheaper and much less hassle too.
  • Play with scale - You can give your home a fresh feel by playing around with scale. For example, instead of going for small, ‘standard’ pendants, opt for oversized ones. This will give your kitchen a luxurious, fresh feel.
  • Try a unique furniture layout - When planning the layout of a room, what does your instinct tell you? Hold that thought, and then go for the exact opposite. You may find that you love what unfolds.
  • Add some vibrancy - One of the easiest ways to freshen up your home and give it a modern feel is to integrate bright colours. A soft mint green is a great way to add a youthful vibe. Or, for an undeniably modern feel, why not go for a rich canary yellow?
  • Strong linear form - When choosing chairs and sofas, look for styles that have strong linear form. Ditch the bulky furniture and go for styles with refined, sleek materials. The use of tweed, leather, and tightly woven fabrics make furniture more durable and sophisticated.
  • Stack your books - This may seem like an odd suggestion, however, it is one of the easiest ways to give your home a modern touch, and it won’t cost any money either. So, why stack your books? Well, traditionally, books are always arranged vertically in libraries, so you can put a twist on things by stacking your book horizontally.
  • Ditch the carpet - There is nothing modern about carpeted flooring. Instead, go for a sleek wooden alternative. You can see different modern flooring styles at Carpet One. Another elegant and luxurious type of flooring is clay tile. Clay is softer to touch than standard tiles, yet it still offers great durability.
  • Hang contemporary art - Last but not least, if you have a traditional home, there is nothing that looks better than juxtaposing contemporary art with the thoughtful architecture you already have going on in the room. Choose real statement pieces for a modern vibe.

So there you have it; plenty of top tips to help you get started with adding a modern touch to your home!

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C .

Cum aleg lumanarile parfumate

 Buna frumoaselor, Astazi va vorbesc despre lumanarile mele parfumate preferate , Yankee Candle  . Fiind o amatoare de  lumanari parfumate , apropiatii stiu asta si de multe ori primesc si de la ei lumanari de la diverse branduri insa sincer va spun ca pana acum nici un brand nu m-a impresionat mai tare decat Yankee Candle. O fi din cauza mirosului persistent, a aromelor si formelor diverse pe care le au lumanarile lor sau poate le asociez eu cu amintiri frumoase pe care le am. Cand am musafiri, pe langa curatenie, gatit, mereu aprind si o lumanare cu o ora inainte sa ajunga, astfel incat prima impresie pe care o au cand intra in casa sa fie una placuta. Mereu am apreciat o casa cu un miros frumos. Sa stiti ca am observat de-a lungul anilor ca pana si casa/locuinta in care stai are un anumit miros, la fel si hainele. Si de multe ori cand simt un miros asemanator ma duce cu gandul la acele persoane.  Poate nu toti oamenii sunt asa dar eu sunt, fiind avida de parfumuri, mirosuri frumoase
