Many people around the United States are opting to swap out their foreign-made furniture, home accessories and other home decor items for locally made or made in the U.S.A. products. Unfortunately, dependence on foreign products has resulted in some shoddy workmanship for certain (but not all) products that are now being made (again) in the good ol U.S. of A. Here the low down on American-made home accessories and decor, including what you should look for and what you should steer clear of. Were all familiar with that little oval circle that says something along the lines of made in China, Taiwan, Thailand or some other far off exotic place. Many people today flip an item over and if they see that little sticker, or any other notion that the product has been made outside of the U.S.A., they set it down and walk away.
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.
Make use of scented candles to soothe the mood - Scented candles can effectively change the mood into a very romantic one which is perfect for two people in love who need that extra time to be alone. Also as the winter holidays are approaching, candles are a great addition to any home that likes to welcome these festivities with open arms. Dont forget about decorative mirrors - They can make a difference in your bathroom for example. They are decorative accessories that are easily implemented and dont even have to cost too much. Hanging them above the vanity on the wall is the perfect place to showcase them in the room.
