IDEAS TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR IN STYLE!

It’s that time of the year again! And it hit me when a friend asked what my resolutions were going to be for 2015? Then again I am notorious for not sticking to my resolutions but I am famous for planning the party!! So here are some ideas that we at Uberlyfe think, will simply rock the revelry you are planning when this year ends.

First things first…bare walls no matter how beautifully painted, will not set the mood for a party. Our “HAPPY NEW YEAR” wall decal will instantly make the difference! Or if you just want your walls to look gorgeous but no theme, choose from our beautiful floral stickers for an unique interior. http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-newyear; http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-floral

A very creative idea is to display a collection of different clocks at a “hard to miss spot” in the room where you are partying. Better, set the alarm for midnight and wait for the fun 🙂

Streamers, paper lanterns or pom poms are a must! Shiny, colorful or bright and white…go wild with options.

Lights are very important…we think when effectively used, they can create magic! For instance if you frame a large mirror with string lights as shown below, the look will be enchanting. Candles are great too, see what we have: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-tlight

Balloons never go out of fashion. Create some quirky decor with them. Hang snapshots of the best moments from the last year from a bunch of balloons. Or use golden paint or glitter to customize funky messages on dark colored ones!

If you have a bit of glitter or some shiny paint, you can add zing to everyday stuff and make them eye catching. Like the stems of these wine glasses were painted in fun colors and the blue crystal like adornment around the rim of the glasses is colored sugar!glass

To stand out from the crowd, paint shiny numbers on the drinks glasses…10, 9, 8,7…just like a countdown! Use cool, glittering stirrers to add some spice. You can make your own too with some cardboard, glue and glitter.

A sparkling disco ball never fails to cheer things up and is a must have if you are planning to dance the night away…

Lay out a beautiful table for your hungry guests…i have always noticed that using contrasting colors create a more interesting look. And it increases the visual appeal of the food, don’t you think?

Customize the food…and you won’t believe the number of compliments you will get! Cookies that resemble clocks or champagne glasses will be hard to resist. If you are serving cupcakes, make clock cutouts from stiff paper and stick them on the top!

A great way to make your home come alive is with bright, vibrant furnishing. Colorful, funky cushions can give a stunning makeover to an old sofa! Curtains in bold, vivid colors or prints can do the trick too…

Lights can steal the show no matter what the occasion! String lights, paper lanterns, antique lamps, candles, diyas (on Diwali)…can transform the ambiance magically! They can be bright or suffused depending on the mood you want to create.

 Floating candles or flowers or both in a shallow urn of water look extremely pretty. You can also make it a daily ritual to spread positivism around the house!

 Fragrance is a major charmer when it comes to creating a fabulous memory…use floral, fruity or other delicious smelling incense or candles to make it “feel like heaven”…

No festival is complete without food! So table presentation is crucial…bring out your best linen, place-mats, napkins, crockery and cutlery to create a memorable eating experience. Flowers in vases or submerged in water or floating aromatic candles can add an extra spark.

 Finally…the delicacies that you have so lovingly prepared will earn many times its worth when presented in a creative and eye-catching manner. So whether it’s a salad or meat or dessert, attractive presentation is always a winner 🙂

9 MUST SEE TRENDS IN BEDROOM DECOR

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your haven…where you want to be yourself without worrying about how others will judge you! We think it’s a great place to experiment with different creative ways of decoration. You can choose a look that will reflect your taste, personality or dreams 🙂

Here are some great trends that are garnering popularity this year:

Floral wall decal or sticker is a great way to instantly get a fresh, lovely look. Especially, a large piece of art looks elegant where everything else is designed in a simple way. More ideas here: http://tinyurl.com/musg86s

Combination of shades of gray, white and black always look classic. Take a look at this room …an indoor plant or an ornate chandelier can just add that luxurious but homely touch to this sophisticated bedroom!

If you love the rooms in luxury hotels, you can get that look as shown below. Works best if your bedroom is large. Note the kind of furnishing and lighting used, to replicate the look. Soft lights, huge beds, extravagant headboards, large windows will enhance the feel.

Ethnic prints specially Moroccan has been offering universal appeal for some time. These unique designs are easy to incorporate in curtains, rugs, cushions, bedspreads or any upholstery covering. See how this room combines the “flavors” of Africa with a brick finish wall.

Green and yellow shades when used in combination with white or black, can create interesting looks. While mild shades of green can exude a tranquil feel, yellow has the power to cheer you up in a second. If you love bright or neon shades, just remember to use them in small doses for the right effect.

Using natural materials like wood, metal, stone or brick is very much in this year. Like in this room ,thick planks of wood act as wall decor behind the bed, The irregularly shaped rug lends an eccentric look!

Tartan is a pattern which is excellent for a rough, rustic yet comfortable bedroom. With an old world charm, it’s easy to use for pillows, bed covers, curtains or other furnishing. Coupled with a wooden wall, it looks gorgeous!

Blue never goes out of fashion and is a safe bet too. Soft pastel blue, navy blue, bright blue and even electric shades look stylish and work together beautifully.

Finally, never underestimate the power of white…very few things are as magically peaceful as an all white bedroom. An old fashioned four poster will make it look all the more quaint!

Most importantly, no matter what the trend is, a decor idea that reflects what you are and makes you long for your “nest” is all you need to be happy 🙂

THE ULTIMATE ECO FRIENDLY BABY CRADLE!

okooko-eco-friendly-cradle

Yes…that’s a cradle!! Created by a company in New Zealand, it seems to have popped out of a fairy-tale…

Nature friendly materials like wood, natural latex, bamboo and wool have been used to put together this incredible luxury spot for your little one. It goes without saying that such a unique innovation will not be cheap. The soft, plush mattress itself is worth $2,500!! But then again, the feeling of sleeping in the lap of such comfort is priceless 🙂

If you are someone who loves and cares a lot about the environment and is of course ready to splurge without a second thought, this one is definitely for you.
