You don’t have to spend thousands to create a warm ambiance in some little corner in your home. Or perhaps you’d want to have a unique feel and romantic air to your dinner party. Or you simply wanna spruce up the way your outdoor patio or garden looks.

Candle lanterns are one of the best and cheapest decor items you can add to create that warm and glowing ambiance anywhere. What I personally like about it is that it creates a dancing light effect across the room making it feel more lively and sets a really mellow and romantic mood.  I came across this site – WholesaleMart.com and they have really pretty as well as very affordable selections of candle lanterns. Here’s some picks..

Decorating a child’s room is a really fun fun task! In fact, I often think of it not as a task or work but more like fun time! Hubby and I are planning on rebuilding our house soon. One primary change would be room provisions for a home office, a bedroom/study room for our daughter, and a guest room.

I could barely summon much interest in looking up ideas for all the other rooms but I’m having a blast hopping from one site to another soaking up ideas for the kiddo’s room. Here’s a recent find from Swedish furniture firm IKEA. I love these Mammut Series of children’s furniture.

They are colorful, functional and looks really sturdy. Too bad we don’t have IKEA here but I want something like these..Lol! I feel like I’m in some storybook just looking at these.
