Easy Approach To Home Decorating

Are you feeling the need to freshen up your home? A vase of flowers might not cut it. Instead, you might want to think about decorating. That can take many forms. All your choices reflect your personality and tastes. But which approach is the right approach for you? Consider the following:

Minimalist Design

Minimalist home decorating is just that: minimum. You’re going to be taking away versus adding. Minimalism is defined by neutral colors as variation of white tones. Lighting should be unobtrusive, but in plentiful supply. When adding accents, less is more. You don’t want to fill up shelves or tables with knick-knacks. Concealed storage also adds to the minimalist approach.

Eclectic Design

Eclectic design is the very opposite of minimalist approach. Here you bring in a lot of things that make you happy. Best of all, nothing has to match in terms of design or style. This approach is other referred to as “thrift store chic.” That’s because you can find a lot of treasures by shopping thrift stores, yard sales and Craigslist. For color schemes, think bold pastels and accent walls. Even though you’re going eclectic doesn’t mean you have to make things look cluttered. Let your accents be special.

Don’t Decorate Everything at Once

You don’t have to decorate the entire house all at once. Think of this as an ongoing project. Once you’ve established a style for a particular room, you can go on the “hunt” for more things to add but it doesn’t all have to be complete on a single Saturday.

To keep costs down, you might also want to consider DIY projects. Most lumberyards will precut wood to your specs. That will let you create all kinds of table legs for an interesting piece of reclaimed wood you might happen upon. That would be easy to assemble especially with the help of YouTube DIY videos!

Before you start to pull a room together, you’ll want to “take it apart.” That means getting rid of any item you’re not going to use or replace. This is where Junk King Dallas can be of assistance. One session with these junk hauling pros will have your home clear of unwanted furniture, electronics and other household goods. Don’t decorate your home until Junk King Dallas has had a chance to get rid of the rubbish.

Keep America Beautiful Campaign Celebrates 65th Anniversary With Dallas Conference

The Keep America Beautiful Campaign recently celebrated it’s 65th anniversary with conference in Dallas that attracted community leaders and educators from all across the country. Also, in attendance were the business owners and policymakers who are instrumental in implementing a lot of the initiatives set forth by the campaign. The conference featured sessions on recycling, disaster recovery and beautification programs conducted at the community level.

“As we enter our 65th year, Keep America Beautiful has its eyes on a future in which everyone deserves to live in a clean, green and beautiful community, while sharing a responsibility to contribute to that vision,” said Helen Lowman, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful in a press release. “Today, we turn our attention to ‘The Next 65′ for our organization – empowered and inspired by our state and community-based affiliates, millions of volunteers as  junkwell as our corporate supporters and other partner organizations. The future of Keep America Beautiful lies in our ability to continually educate and inspire a new generation of community stewards.”

All of this begs the question, “What are you doing to keep America beautiful?” Anytime you toss trash into a trashcan, you’re helping. The same goes for recycling at home. It all helps but you don’t have to stop there. You can also improve the environment by picking the right green companies to give your business to. That starts with junk hauling and the perfect company for this task is Junk King Dallas.

But with the Junk King crews on hand, those spaces can be literally cleaned out in a matter of minutes. All you have to do is point to what you want taken away and the crew will take it away from there. They’ll also pick up any debris or rubbish you have around your yard.
