Horses are featured in artwork from around the world, although most people tend to view them as solely additions to a Western-themed room with cowboys and Indians. Nothing could be further from the truth, and they are an attractive addition to almost any room with the right colors and textures. Whether you go all out and feature a life-size horse bust with matching horsehair furniture and accents or choose something subtle to finish the look of your room, horsing around is a great way to add something unique to your home.
Before hanging any art on a wall, try different combinations of arrangements. Use painters tape and brown paper bags and keep rearranging the bits of paper on the wall until you have come up with a great picture arrangement. Always hang prints at eye level and use your hand in between pictures as a guide to space large and medium sized pictures. Mirrors are great to help create the illusion of space. By cleverly placing mirrors on an adjacent wall to a picture or something which is interesting in your room, will reflect the image and add a sense of space. For darker rooms, hang a decorative mirror near a window. The light will then bounce off the mirror into the room portraying more natural much-needed light back into the area.
With furniture, you may want to look for key words aside from made in the U.S.A. For example, kiln-dried frames are higher quality than frames that have not been kiln-dried. The same goes for taking note of what fabrics are being used, and so forth. With other items, its pick and choose. When youre out shopping for home accessories and you pick an item up, you should feel whether it feels shoddy and cheap, or whether it feels sturdy and well constructed. Its really all about the feel of the item. Just be cautious and go with your gut instinct.
