Optimum TV Distance

Holly & Martin Corner Media Cabinet
Uttermost Clay Leather Armchair
We are often asked what is a good distance to have between your seating  and the TV.  A good rule of thumb is to leave about 72".  If you place it much closer, viewing might not be comfortable and further back might strain your eyes.  Keep this advice in mind for dad if there is a new TV in his future for Father's Day!  For more great ideas visit www.cheapchicdecor.com.

Color Ideas- Soft Green



Bring a little green into your home! Soft green is a nice neutral color that works well with most decor.  It blends nicely with most colors making it work well in most spaces.  A soft green is also a more original option than the standard beige for a neutral wall color.

Are You Ready For Backyard Entertaining?

The perfect addition to any back yard get together is a fire pit.  We love Holly & Martin's Tuscan Portable Gel Fuel Indoor/Outdoor  Pit!   Stunning beautiful, this portable indoor/outdoor gel fuel fireplace is a guaranteed conversation piece in any setting. Perfect for a covered patio or intimate sitting area, the decorative scroll work graces all four sides of this unique piece. The bell tower top and open metal sides are finished with a textured brown powder coat for style and durability. The flames are guarded with a low tempered glass wind shield. A rich espresso trim sits atop an elegant faux slate base that is truly amazing. Holding up to four cans of gel fuel, you are sure to enjoy the warmth on brisk nights or you can substitute the gel fuel with pillar candles for a more subtle appearance.  Visit www.cheapchicdecor.com for more details.

Useful Tips- Chandelier Height

We are often asked questions about decorating with lighting.  For example, what is the best height to hang a chandelier. Vern Yip recently wrote in HGTV Magazine that a good rule of thumb is to measure 66" from the bottom of the fixture to the floor.  "This leaves enough room for a centerpiece and doesn't block your line of sight across the table, but still gives you strong enough light for eating."

Spring Color Trends


We are always looking for color inspiration. The article "Must See Spring Color Trends" from HGTV.com shows us the latest color trends for spring. They show several rooms with fabulous spring color schemes. Our favorite is the tomato red and hot pink  bedroom.  We love how they make the two colors work together. Not to be missed are the 2 green and pink bedrooms.  The teen room was so fun with polka dot walls.  It is great how the pink pops without overpowering the space.  The more adult soft green and pink bedroom had a perfect spring feel. Check them all out at http://www.hgtv.com/decorating/must-see-spring-color-trends/pictures/index.html?i=1

Serving Trays for Entertaining and as an Accent


Why hide decorative trays and bowls in a cabinet when not in use. Spice up your table with some interesting trays and bowls. They are essential to have for entertaining and fabulous to display on a table or credenza when you are not. We like to use a decorative bowl or tray as a centerpiece or accent item. For example, a decorative tray is a great accent for a cocktail table or even a large ottoman, while an intricate bowl is a perfect addition for a buffet or accent table.
