Accent Chair- Accent chairs can provide a great distinctive touch for your living room. There are many types of chairs available-upholstered, canvassed or cushioned chairs. Ottomans, chaise lounges, and exclusive armless chairs are great concepts for captivating and appealing chair designs. First thing to be looked in a chair is the comfort factor.

Howard Dining Chairs

An accent chair must be comfortable to sit in and match your home decor. This is important as many times people get carried away by the design and do not pay much attention to the seating comfort. Such chairs then just form a display item.  Accent chairs can be used in drawing room, dining room, study room or even game rooms. For the drawing room/sitting and study room, comfort should be the foremost factor in deciding the accent chair.

A solid wooden table made with mahogany looks extremely elegant and suave. You can even have a elegant chess table placed in the living room. You can also have decent accent table in your garden area for that morning cup of tea. Care must be taken that the  home accents table and chair are chosen such that they complement each other as well as the design of the house.


Lighting up for Christmas Decorations

7 Foot Douglas Fir – Green I am, without a doubt, a total freak when it comes to decorating for Christmas. Yes indeed, I am quite an adult, yet I still believe in Santa Claus! I think I am living proof that one does not have to spend beyond your means to light up the holiday.
To do this, one certainly has to depend upon the habits of richer folks. They are always looking for “new” and “more” and that leads to some fine discards of really good decorations. I shop for my own “more” at thrift shops, yard sales, and after Christmas” sales. It does help to be able to make minor repairs.

70 LED C6 Strawberry Green Lights – Green Wire – 4 Inch Spacing – Polybag – Case of 24 – $ 298.80
Retail Price: 436.56
You Save: $137.76
The only string of lights I’ve ever bought “new” is a relic from 42 years ago, that I bought for my wife’s and my first Christmas, together. Everything else is second hand and this is a great way to save money. Replacement bulbs can often be found in boxes of miscellaneous goods at these sales. I may have to take some pure junk in those boxes to get my treasures.
I am not some spendthrift crank. It’s just that I, like many people these days, need to be careful with my dollars. So what if I have many different kinds of lights, and ornaments. I think that makes my displays more interesting, than so many of today’s, store bought, correct lighting.

I have more than 1000 lights. I have some reindeer, a couple of Santas, and a small crèche. Yes, I do pay attention to the REAL reason for the Christmas celebration. Each year, I add something to my collection. I planted my own outdoor tree, many years ago, and it serves me well, today. That is where that relic string of lights goes. I do not think I more than $100.00 invested in all that I have.
I do caution you to be certain any electrical items do have the proper UL tag for “outdoor use” lighting. I also be sure each string has a fuse link. If you are going to use many lights, also use a dedicated “plug in” with at least 20 amp breaker service, because mixed lights do need more “juice.”
My neighbors think I’m crazy, but they do love my bright yard. I like to think it helps Santa find my home, and I also hope Jesus smiles. So if you are not afraid to be unique, and perhaps a bit eccentric, get thee to the places where you can buy cheaply, and don’t be afraid to mix, and match. This can be economical, and fun to do. Merry Christmas!
