Parcels and packages has definitely taken on a different meaning with this. These line of design called the "Soft Parcel" (a fitting name, don't you think?) was created by Tak Arkitekter based in Sweden.

Don't fret though. You can actually sit and lounge on those furnishings. Instead of boxes and paper, "Soft Parcel" uses foam and fabric. Of course, comfort comes first. :D. Unique idea if you don't mind your living room looking like a.. warehouse..

Tips on Working with Web Designers

The internet is now a place for everything. Practically every type of field and business is represented here. Whether you have a business about home design or raising koi's in a pond or you're selling cosmetics, one thing for certain, a web presence would surely be a boost to your business and your brand.

Getting online sure is easy nowadays with all the available softwares and CMS that can be used by even non-techies. However, if you want to build a professionally designed website and you don't have the time to learn and tweak those softwares, the best option is to hire and work with web designers to come up with the website that would best suit your purposes.

There are plenty of competition in the field of website design. So how do you weed out and choose which web design company to work with? A very good first step is to check out your competitors web site and have an idea of what you want to have in your site. Surf and search the web for sites that you liked and usually web owners leave a link to the web design company who built that site. You can also do a local search and have a look at designers and their portfolios.

The second tip is to have a realistic budget. If you require a complicated website that would take up to several months to craft, then a $400 budget just wouldn't have any takers. If you are tight on the budget, you might consider checking out start up web design companies. Most of these start-ups charge lower just to build up a portfolio and a client base.

Third, it is important to KNOW WHAT YOU WANT. Do ample research and jot down features and functions you want to have in your own site.

Fourth, once you decide on what you want in terms of look, features, functions etc, then be ready with the content. You can't expect the designer to churn out your content. Be sure to have it and to give it on time otherwise it can be a cause of delay.

Fifth, have a signed contract. Make sure the contract covers everything that it needs to cover, including a termination clause.

Sixth, work with your designer to outline the whole process. Schedules are important and working with timetables is necessary.

I love remodeling. For several reasons. One, times are tough now and its not easy to buy a new home just when you feel like it. Two, remodeling is a great creative challenge. Three, you can actually do it yourself, or make it a family project, or have someone do it with you supervising :P.
One place in a home that is pretty easy to start with when it comes to remodeling is the bathrooms. It is a small and simple space and I'm sure it'll be easy to come up with new ideas to make it all new. But if you are on a creative stalemate and can't come up with unique and cost saving ideas, then don't despair, there are places you can look to find your bathroom remodeling inspiration.

Check out the homes of your family and friends. Ask them for suggestions and tips on how they went about remodeling their own bathrooms.

Home magazines are also excellent sources of remodeling ideas. Can't afford to buy new ones? Borrow from friends or get back issues from discount bookstores. Or you really don't want to purchase these, then head over to your local bookstore and spend sometime browsing magazines geared towards home and garden niches. These magazines offer a wealth of ideas on cost-saving tips as well as do-it-yourself instructions.

Open houses can also be a creative inspiration. Visit one in your local area and I'm sure this trip would help you come up with a new idea or two. Bring along a camera for easy documentation. Majority of these model houses have top notch interior designers doing the designing or remodeling for them and chances are you might find a good design element you'd like to incorporate in your bathroom remodeling.

Blend ideas from all of your idea sources. You'd be surprise how all these mixed ideas could really jive together and come up with an amazing bathroom remodeling plan for you.

Buying a car is not as simple as buying the latest jeans or a pair of shoes. For one it is costly and most of us would want a car that we'll be able to use for a couple of years at least. Before buying one, I'm sure you'd like to have a good idea of what is available in the market and would have at least a particular car maker or model in mind before you go around shopping.

This is where car reviews come in because you'd be able to access valuable information on cars, which would help you choose what model of mercedes benz or volvo would best suit your personality as well as budget. Not all of us are car experts so before choosing a car we'd like to hear what the experts on cars have to say about the latest car models, its features, its perfomance, the aesthetics and all other factors that would help us make the decision.

TheCarConnection.com is one car review site that offers full car reviews which includes in detail about each car's performance, style, quality, safety and other features. They also have the car compare section where you can have a great car comparison experience. Expert advices and tips are also on hand, free price quotes can be requested and not only that , there is also a photo gallery for each model making it much easier for you to visualize and find the right car.

Navigating through the website is pretty easy and quick. I particularly like how they categorize  their reviews - by car manufacturer, by style - ie. sedan, 2-door, SUV etc., by price range and by price quotes from local dealers.  I also like the way cars reviewed  for each car makers are presented - sequentially. For example you visit the Kia page, then the top item would be the kia soul which would be that particular car makers latest offering.

If you also need help finding a local dealer, they also have a search capacity for local dealers in every state for whichever car manufacturer page you are in say you are in the Kia page, then you can automatically find a local dealer catering for Kia alone.

If you have an apartment complex or even a compound comprised of several houses, then it makes sense to have cluster mailboxes installed to maximize space and to make it easier for the mailman too..

Apartment mailboxes are usually clustered together in one specific place rather than scattered in every apartment door. This makes things easier to those doing the delivery since its centralized, no need for walk-abouts.

For tenants too its easier to have one place to pick up the mail and not have it cluttered in front of their door.

There are a wide variety of commercial mailboxes available for those who want to have it. Different designs, made, materials. From mail package drops to cluster boxes, vertical mailboxes, high security drop boxes, parcel lockers, freestanding, horizontal boxes and many more, you'd actually be spoiled for choice.

** I found this article to be truly informative and could help a lot if you're planning to decorate a small space so I decided to reprint it... Full credit goes to the author Sue Krippner. For more of her ideas, visit the links on the footnote..



Decorating Small Spaces is fun! It's a call to thinking outside of the box with every square inch being at a premium.

The scale of presenting specifics for each room is beyond the scope of this article, so here are some universal tips and tricks, that can be applied to any small space throughout the house.

Think "Double Duty" - There are many any ways to maximize smaller areas by combining more than one function to the items arranged in the room. Consider these powerful examples:
1. An ottoman that has hidden storage space AND a turn over top that could double as a cocktail or end table. With the storage underneath you can hide throws, games, t.v. controllers or whatever need may arise.
2. Replace a solid, space closing door, with a wood framed french or glass one. This will open up that dead end by allowing in more light. It will also create a transparent divider that pulls in the other room while provide conversational privacy or muting TV sounds.
3. Double up that home office into a guest room. Inventive wall units are available with an amazing variety of configuration versatility. These units can provide a sophisticated office area by day and a luxurious guest bedroom at night. Type in "Murphy beds" into a search engine to see what pops up.

Think "The Illusion Of Space" - To brighten and create the appearance of a larger small space, place a mirror in an area that best reflects the most room expansion. Near a window works well or directly across from a blank wall or those wonderful french doors mentioned earlier.

An entire wall of mirror is a bit extreme for some but provides a perfect solution for others. To the minds eye, mirrors are interpreted as windows. Try them in a room that has none of these fresh air openings to minimize that closed in feeling. Place them to the back of book cases or shelves to create the appearance of depth.

Think, "The Law Of Flat Surfaces" - Any level of maximizing space and design will be destroyed by allowing too much stuff to accumulate. Even a great room will look small if clutter is allowed to rule. The heave and leave habit is a hard one to break but with some determined organization this interior weed can be eliminated by implementing this simple law.

The Law of Flat Surfaces is a simple guideline to keep all your horizontal surfaces free of random stuff. The floor, counter tops, area tables, shelves, fire place mantel, the list goes on and on but, by keeping these areas clear a person will be amazed at how simple it is to maintain any small space to stay comfortable and always ready for house guests.

Decorating for small spaces will always present unique challenges. Along with those challenges is an unconventional opportunity to develop one of a kind design solutions. Traditional shapes and sizes don't always work but with a little research, shopping and possibly professional consultation - that small space will make a large impression.

Any room design project will become extraordinary by understanding your personal design style. Visit http://frugalhomedesign.com/profileintro.html for more information
