Container Gardening For Beginners: 3 Things To Know

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

container gardening for beginners

A well-kept garden is a great way to add curb appeal to your home, but devoting a piece of your lawn to landscaping can take a lot of commitment — especially if you’re a beginner. Before you rip up your lawn and prep the soil, try growing a container vegetable garden.

Container gardening for beginners is a great way to flex your green thumb without the commitment of a landscaping project. Because all of your plants are grown in pots, it’s easy to rearrange the layout on a whim. Decorative planters also add visual flair to your garden.

Follow these three tips to get started on your very own container garden.

Plan Your Container Garden

Before you start planting your container garden, it’s best to go in with a plan. The most important part of container gardening for beginners is often among the most overlooked: Decide where you want to set your containers and determine how much sun they get.

Knowing the amount of light your yard receives will help you choose the perfect plants for your project. Sun-loving tomatoes, for instance, won’t do well on a shady balcony. Many types of ferns, on the other hand, are perfect for spots that don’t get as much light.

Next, it’s time to pick your plants. Decide whether you’d prefer flowers, herbs, vegetables, or a combination of the three. Herbs are some of the easiest plants to grow. Tomatoes, salad greens, and many flowers are plants that are both aesthetically pleasing and easy to grow.

When choosing your plants and containers, don’t forget to consider the aesthetics. Think about your ideal color scheme, varying sizes, and how plants look together. All of these elements add to your home’s curb appeal, which can help your home sell faster.

Gather Your Gardening Supplies

Once you’ve decided on the perfect plants, it’s time to visit the garden store. If you’re in the San Diego area, here are some great shops to visit.

Here’s a list of things that should be on your list:

  • Potting soil
  • Fertilizer
  • Pots
  • Plants
  • Pebbles or stones

Even though your lawn is filled with dirt, don’t dig it up and think you can skip the potting soil and fertilizer. Potting soil from the garden store has the correct soil composition, which will give your plants the greatest chance to thrive. Fertilizer is a necessity because not even the best potting soil has the proper nutrients for your garden.

When choosing containers, pay attention to more than just how they look. Turn the planters over to make sure they allow for proper drainage. If it doesn’t, put it back on the shelf. Containers without proper drainage can cause the soil to become too wet, leading to rotting roots that will kill your plant.

Self-watering containers are another smart option. These planters will make sure your vegetables are tended to, without you having to worry about over or under watering them.

Enjoy Container Gardening For Beginners

Now that you’ve made your plans and gathered your supplies, it’s time for the fun part!

Start by adding a thin layer of pebbles or stones at the bottom of your plant. This will ensure excess water can flow out, without bringing soil along with it.

Next, prep the soil by mixing it with some fertilizer. Fill the pot about three-quarters full of your mixture. Dig a small hole in the center, and add your plant. Next, add more of the soil-fertilizer mix. You’ll want to make sure all of the roots are fully covered, up to the stem of the plant.

Once that’s done, your garden is ready! Be sure to water your plants regularly, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Once the outside of your home is beautiful, consider the inside.

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Summer home staging

Now that the weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer, summer is officially here. Just as you bust out your summer wardrobe, it’s time to upgrade your decor to match the season. If you’re still looking for inspiration, check out these four decorating trends for your summer home staging.

Marble Everything

You’re not spending too much time on Pinterest — marble really is everywhere. This luxurious stone is showing up on countertops, furniture, and decorative items. Real marble is expensive, but you don’t have to shell out a ton of cash. In fact, a faux version made from ceramic is just as stylish.

Bring this trend into your home staging by incorporating accent pieces like bowls, candle holders, or vases. For an extra modern look, find ways to pair marble with wood or metal accessories.

Year-Round Hygge

There’s no doubt that 2017 is the year of hygge. This Danish term is most closely translates to getting cozy or comfortable, but it’s so much more than bundling up in a blanket by a fireplace.

Bring hygge into your home year-round by creating an environment that invokes feelings of peacefulness and happiness.

For summer home staging, this could mean bringing the outdoors in. Take a cue from nature and decorate with fresh flowers, indoor plants, or other botanical-inspired pieces. Light some scented candles or leave the windows open to fill your home with the fresh, breezy scents of summer.

Go For Greenery

Greenery, the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, is the perfect summer decorating hue. Symbolic of new beginnings, this bright color creates a refreshing and revitalizing atmosphere in any room.

Incorporate this trend in your summer home staging plan by creating a bold accent with a piece of furniture, linens, or artwork. For extra style points, combine greenery and hygge by adding a few house plants or succulents.

Balcony Gardening

Add a lively and refreshing feel to your balcony or patio by starting a container garden. Whether it’s a small pot of basil on a table or tall shrubs around the perimeter, adding some live flair to your outdoor space can help you sell your home fast. If you’re unsure of how to create that perfect container garden, this helpful guide from The Spruce will point you in the right direction.

May Flower Decorations to Beautify Your Home or Office

May Flower Decorations to Beautify Your Home or Office

As spring continues to march forward, it’s a great time to adjust your interior decoration and home staging themes accordingly. One decoration theme that fits perfectly this time of year is flower decorations. By incorporating different flower themes into your decor projects, you can really bring out the springtime freshness for your home.  

As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” Last month, we blogged about “April Shower” decor themes. This month, check out these “May Flower” decoration ideas for your home or office:

Classic Flower Basket

Nothing quite says “springtime” like a classic flower basket. A small open wicker basket will do the trick quite nicely. Simply lay some flowers in the basket, along with a small item like a plaid table napkin, and you’ve got a charming centerpiece that works wonders in the dining area and living room.

For your basket, you can choose any simple spring flower, but white flowers often work the best for May flower decor purposes. White varieties like freesias and hydrangeas will really brighten up and freshen up your basket piece. And, of course, you can’t go wrong with a bunch of classic white daisies.

Flower Decorations in a Jar

Another decor idea is to place your flower decorations in a jar rather than a vase. This gives your arrangement a more compact, space-saving feel, and creates a unique look that’s great for bathrooms and other smaller spaces. Feel free to add some rocks to your water as well. Whether plain or colored, the rocks create cool-looking base layer to complement the flowers above.

Orchids

This season, orchids will be a major trend for May flower decoration themes. While long-lasting orchid plants are popular year-round, they make for excellent choices for spring interior decor and home staging purposes. Their simple, unintrusive look is elegant and refined, and their non-bulky size will keep your centerpieces from looking cluttered.

For May and spring decor choices, classic white orchids look great, as do some of the deeper purple and violet shades.

Flower Prints

If you can’t get your hands on some actual flowers, flower prints can help you achieve that “May flowers” feel in a jiffy. Some convenient places to use flower prints include:

  • Tablecloths and placemats
  • Curtains
  • Bedsheets and beddings
  • Towels and shower curtains
  • Welcome mats

Lastly, vintage botanical prints are super popular as well, and they can also be informative when the scientific names are included.

Color Choices

Keep your flower decor consistent by tying it together with a color theme. Any ribbons, trim, jars, etc. can use the same color combinations, which makes your presentations neat and tidy. This season, shades of blue, muted copper, and rose golds will be popular, so you might want to consider these for your arrangements. Of course, the choice is yours — just make sure you’re consistent!

These flower decorations are a starting point to put you on the path towards fun spring decor activity. You can use these to create your own variations and put your own special touch in your home and office areas.

April Shower Decorations for Homes and Parties

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

April Shower Decorations for Homes and Parties

A very popular theme around this time of the year is “April showers.” This is an excellent month to infuse your decor themes with all things rain- and shower-related. Also, the April showers theme is a fun backdrop for literal shower parties, such as baby showers. Decking out your home with April shower decorations is fun and easy. Here are some ideas you can try out:

Clouds With Raindrops April Shower Mobile

A simple April showers decor project you can make is a clouds + raindrops hanging mobile. All you need is a cluster of white balloons filled with helium, string, and some cutout raindrops to hang from the balloon string (the balloons will represent a rain cloud).  If you’re decorating for a party, you can also hang a sign from the mobile that says “Baby Shower” or another appropriate message. White tissue craft paper also works very well if you can’t get a hold of balloons.

Umbrellas

Umbrellas are a perfect decor item for April showers themes. For decor, you can place brightly colored umbrellas in different places to add a showery feel. For more subtle, playful effects, you can outline or cut out silhouettes from construction paper. These can then be pasted on backdrops, used for table decor, or pasted in other places, like on give-away bags.

Note: Make sure your umbrellas have a curved “J”-shaped handle. This is what distinguishes the umbrella as a rain umbrella as opposed to sun parasols, which often have straight handles.

April Shower Decorations for Homes and Parties

Rain Boot Vase

Rain boots are another iconic symbol of the rainy season. A popular trend these days is the ceramic rain boot vase. These can be used as lovely centerpieces when you fill them with your favorite flower. They also look good outside on the porch or in the garden. You can use either one boot or both boots, and they sometimes come in miniature sizes for versatility.

If you can’t find a ceramic version, you can also make a DIY version out of actual boots! Kids’ sizes work particularly well for this type of DIY project, and ribbons will add a classy touch to the piece.

Cloud Cupcakes

A popular food decor item for spring parties is cloud cupcakes. Here, the frosting on the cupcakes creates a visual representation of fluffy clouds. You can use any flavor or color for the base cupcake, but we recommend going with sky-themed colors such as blue. For added pizzaz, you can place some rainbow candies or rainbow sprinkles on them as well.

April Shower Decorations for Homes and Parties

Rainbow Highlights and Accents

Speaking of rainbows, you can’t go wrong with rainbow decor to liven up your place. In this regard, there are a ton of ways you can incorporate rainbows into your April showers themes. Here are a few:

  • Rainbow candle decor
  • Paper mache rainbow wraps around posts and sign poles
  • Rainbow cutouts
  • Rainbow streamers
  • Multi-colored rainbow confetti

You can use these rainbow options as either the central theme or as highlights and accents. They work really well as finishing touches, but either way, they look great!

We trust that you’ll have fun using these April shower decoration ideas. Whether for a party or for regular home decor, these items and ideas can really liven up your place. If you need more extensive home options, contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental. We have furniture rental items and packages that can help you achieve the look for your home that you’ve always wanted.

 

Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Spring season is here! The spring season kicked off officially on March 20, which marks another important transition time for home decoration themes. Now is the time to clean out the house and incorporate all-new spring themes for your bedrooms and common areas. Here are some spring decorating ideas to get help you welcome in the new season:

Failproof Spring Theme: Flowers and Blossoms

Out of all the spring themes, flower themes are the most iconic. Nothing says “springtime” more than simple flowers like sunflowers and daffodils. The highlight of the spring season is when flowers come to bloom, and this should be reflected in your decor choices.

For instance, you can opt for floral pillowcase patterns for your living room throw pillows, or pick out some breezy flower-themed sheets for the bedrooms. Of course, you can’t go wrong with using real, actual flowers as centerpieces and accents in various places around the home!

Watering Can Decor

For springtime, your decor should make use of garden-themed items and tools. A perfect one to use is a watering can. These make excellent indoor decoration items, especially if you paint them over with a pastel hue. For a more vintage look, go for a turquoise or dark green paint job. They also make surprisingly cool pots for placing flowers in, especially taller ones like tulips.

Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Ladybugs for the Kiddies

Ladybugs are another iconic symbolism of springtime, as they emerge in great numbers during the spring months. Many believe that ladybugs are good luck, especially if one lands on you. They represent the outdoors, blossoming flowers, and the cheery disposition associated with spring.

Ladybug-themed decor works especially well for children’s bedrooms and nurseries. You can make cartoon-like cutouts for wall decor, or get some bed covers with ladybug designs on them for the kids.

Birdhouses for Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Birds are another staple image of springtime. All things bird-related will do well as decor items, especially those related to the smaller, chirpier bird varieties. In particular, birdhouses make for some great decor items. You can paint them pastel or bright colors to signify spring, and maybe pair them with some bird nest decor as well.

Birdhouse decor goes well indoors, especially smaller ceramic models; they make great decor outdoors as well, and of course can be functional if you’d like them to be.  

Spring Themes for Awesome Indoor and Outdoor Decor

Bright and Sunny Yellow Hues

For overall decor themes, the color yellow is an outstanding springtime color. It adds a dash a vibrancy and shine to any room. Even just a dab of yellow will provide the space with a happy, free feeling. A favorite DIY project is to paint a dresser or a small nightstand yellow for the spring season. For the bathroom areas, yellow towels and throw rugs, along with some lemon scent, can really freshen up the room.

Window Treatment Decor

Finally, don’t neglect the window areas in your home, especially in the kitchen and the dining areas. Now is the time to remove the heavy drapes and replace them with lighter, more breezy window decor. This will let more light into the room and allow you to take advantage of the extra spring sunshine, especially now that Daylight Savings has kicked in.

As the days get warmer, make sure your home reflects the new life budding all around you. If you have more extensive home decoration and design needs, contact us today at Signature Furniture Rental.

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

A common inquiry that many homeowners have is, “How do I decorate a bathroom that has limited space?” Now, whether your bathroom is truly small, or you’re just being modest, there are some principles and guidelines that you can apply to help maximize your small bathroom space. Also, there are some tricks you can do to create the perception that your bathroom is bigger than it really is. Read on to learn how:

Small Bathroom Storage is Key

One of the biggest challenges for small bathrooms is managing the storage space. If at all possible, the best thing you can do here is to do most of your storing outside of the bathroom. For instance, if you can store your stock of items like towels, napkins and toilet paper, and other items in a hallway cabinet, that frees up extra space in the bathroom.

If you’re pressed for storage space, consider these storage options:

  • Baskets under the sink: wicker baskets can hold a variety of bathroom supplies, while at the same time adding a stylish touch to the space under the sink
  • Some sinks can accommodate a small cabinet underneath them, complete with drawers for stowing your hygiene products. Again, the space under the sink is prime real estate for space-saving
  • Medicine cabinets don’t come standard in all bathrooms; you may want to install one, as they are truly space-savers

Keep the Floor Clear — Especially Tiles With Designs

Try to keep the floor clear of too many items; you can probably choose only one or two free-standing racks or shelves. Choose wisely and be sure the items are functional according to your needs.

Also, it’s not just a matter of space being occupied — if your decor clashes with the design on the floor tiles (or the wallpaper/tiles), the bathroom can look too “busy.” If it’s not physically cramped, too many conflicting patterns and themes can overwhelm a smaller space and create interference.

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

Go For a Monochrome Color Scheme With Slight Accents

Along the lines of not being too “messy,” stick with one or maybe two colors for the main, overall bathroom theme. Then, add some slight accents (gold, chrome, and brass make great accents here). The idea is to “tie the room together” with the main color, which will create the impression of a space that is more open, less cluttered, and clean. The slight accents will serve to break up the space while still retaining the open feel.

Mount Towel Racks Strategically

In addition to medicine cabinets, towel racks are bathroom items that don’t always come standard. If you’ll be installing your own towel racks, find a spot where it won’t take up too much additional space in terms of the room’s layout. Ring/hoop style racks can be more space-saving than traditional horizontal bar racks. They’re great for hand towels!

Also, huge, fluffy towels can take up precious real estate in the bathroom; you might want to opt for slimmer micro-fiber type towels, and save the huge hotel-style fabrics for special occasions or when you have guests.

Large Mirrors Add Depth to the Room

A large or medium-sized mirror can give the illusion of more space. Mirrors reflect light and send it throughout the room, illuminating the space. Try installing a larger mirror to enhance this effect. Alternatively, you can add a few smaller mirrors in strategic places. Mirrors also add a feeling of additional depth to the room because your eye perceives the reflection as additional space behind the wall.

How to Design for a Small Bathroom

Consider Glass — Don’t Block the Windows

Along the lines of light and mirrors, be sure not to block the source of light if your bathroom has a mirror. Of course, you need your privacy, but blocking the window with shampoo bottles or decorative plants can really dim down the bathroom’s brightness.

Also, if you’re up to it, consider switching to glass doors rather than a traditional shower curtain. Since the glass is transparent, it allows you to see more of the bathroom. With a shower curtain, the room appears to “stop” right where the curtain is.  


Having a huge bathroom is not always an option, and some people actually prefer the coziness of a smaller setup. By following these tips, you can enjoy your bathroom oasis while at the same time preventing a cluttered and sloppy look. Did you need more interior design and furniture options for your home?

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

A popular trend in indoor design is the use of soft metallic colors, both as accents and as central color themes. In particular, copper has the effect of warming up a space and making it more inviting for guests. Copper in its natural state has a color that is mesmerizing and alluring, while at the same time somewhat light and not overbearing. It’s a tad bit flashier than bronze, but not as gaudy as gold can be. Thus, it’s the perfect metallic color for those trying to avoid extremes. Here are some copper interior design tips and guidelines to consider:

Use Copper to Display Your Kitchenware

Kitchenware is functional and can also make excellent design and decor accents. In particular, unique vintage copper kitchen pieces can be used to beautify the dining and cooking areas.

For instance, copper jars work particularly well for displaying wooden spoons and ladles.  Fancier copper plates can be showcased on a shelf and arranged by size for a lovely presentation. Experiment with smaller copper salt and pepper shakers for fun and quirky table settings. The possibilities are endless!

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

Get Creative with Copper Wire

Copper wire has long been used in the jewelry and craft industry due to its malleability (ease of shaping). It’s commonly twisted into abstract shapes and figurines, and is also used for holding beads and precious gems into place for pendants. Using these same principles, you can use copper wire for accentuating all kinds of indoor decorations. Popular copper wire projects include small animal shapes, musical instruments, and tree of life symbols.

Create the Perfect Room Ambience with Copper Lamps

As mentioned, a main effect of copper interior design work is to add a certain touch of warmth to a space. It also adds an earthy, grounded feeling to any room, as it’s associated with similar colors such as red clay or red earth. This is actually perfect for lamps and other lighting implements where you are aiming to achieve a more muted lighting effect.

Lights that are too bright can be harsh and abrasive on the eyes. Tempering a lamp with a softer bulb and with a copper lamp shade can make all the difference.

Luxurious Copper Interior Design Tips for Your Home

Fill in the Gaps with Copper Spray Paint

Lastly, even if you can’t get your hands on some copper items, you can turn any item into a copper piece with some copper spray paint! This is an excellent, cost-effective way to create new decor pieces, upcycle old vintage items, or repair broken or worn decorations. You can get a fresh, clean copper look to turn any item into a brand new decoration piece.

This idea works great for lamps, pots, cans, and other items that are normally metallic. It also works unexpected wonders for pieces like wicker baskets, boxes, and wooden items. Another benefit of copper spray paint is that you can usually select the reflectiveness of the paint; you can go from a matte finish to the more shiny end of the spectrum.

As you can see, there’s so much you can do by incorporating copper into your interior design themes. With just a few simple touches, you can give your home truly unique and fascinating look.

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

Decorating childrens’ bedrooms can be tricky. For one, they’re constantly growing physically and can have changing needs in terms of furniture and room space. Secondly, their tastes and preferences can change dramatically as the years go by. Here are some tips and guidelines on how to manage transitions for your child’s bedroom:

Be Aware of New Children’s Bedroom Decor Trends

New trends are something that can inspire re-decorating for a kid’s bedroom. For instance, your child be intrigued by a new cartoon, toy, video game, or comic character. You can incorporate some of these brands and merchandise into beddings, posters, pillows, and other decor items.

Your child might switch interests frequently when they’re younger, but most reach a point where they eventually outgrow pop media-based decor items (decorating for teens is a drastically different story!). In the meantime, enjoy decking out the room with cool and zany themes!

Choose Colors Wisely

Though their favorite toys and bedsheet decor might change over the years, chances are your child will have preference for a certain color or color combinations that will last. If you can identify these preferences, you can save some time and money in the long run by stocking up on items with these color combinations.

On the other hand, colors can change too though over the years. Brighter colors are typically more suitable for toddlers who need plenty of visual stimulation. As your child grows, transition into more subdued and muted hues.

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

Plan Ahead and Get Bigger Furniture from the Get-Go

In a certain sense, children’s furniture can be like clothes — as the child develops physically, they’ll soon need bigger sizes. You may want to plan ahead and get slightly bigger furniture items so that they can grow into them more gradually. A excellent option is furniture rental, which can provide more affordable and practical options, especially during growth spurt stages.

Incorporate Functional Furniture for Specific Purposes

In addition, you can incorporate furniture that can be used for your child’s specific needs. For instance, you may want to set up a study corner with a desk and a nice chair for homework time. If you child loves reading, you can set up a comfy reading chair near the bed. These are activities that your child will be doing for years to come, so you likely won’t need to change these as often as other items, like bedding decor.  

Highlight Your Child’s Accomplishments

Your child’s achievements and accomplishments never go out of style. You can highlight your child’s greatest moments by decorating the room with their awards, trophies, certificates, and other meaningful trinkets. Even books that they have read can make wonderful decor items. Your child will feel a sense of pride each time they see these items.

How to Manage Children’s Bedroom Decor Through the Years

Get Your Child’s Input

Lastly, nothing is more direct than simply getting your child’s input when it comes to the appearance of their room. Who knows — they might have some very good suggestions and ideas of their own regarding aesthetics and design. You might be raising a future interior designer!

Also, some kids might be too shy or even embarrassed to say if they don’t like the way their room looks or feels. A little conversation can go a long way, and can help you and your child achieve a suitable bedroom look.

Your child’s bedroom will undergo numerous makeovers over the years. As time passes, you can be ready for all sorts of changes and adjustments by following these simple guidelines.

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

For most of us, the bedroom is something of a sanctuary, a personal retreat where we can rest and recuperate after a busy day. New bedroom interior decorating trends are pushing this even further, adding ultra-luxurious appeal to our already comfortable spaces. Have a look at these bedroom decor ideas for inspiration:

Create Your Own Personal Retreat

When it comes to bedroom decor trends, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s no shame in splurging on yourself to create the most lush environment to pamper yourself in. Feel free to add extra plush pillows, larger bed frames, and super-soft throw rugs. Speaking of soft, you’ll also want to opt for softer colors and lighter hues that are easy on the eyes, rather than jarring colors.

Be sure to pay attention to overlooked aspects like wallpaper and flower decor, as these can really add those finishing touches to your room.

Hotel-Like Amenities

Along with the idea of creating a personal retreat, some home decorators are taking things a step further and adding perks that you’d normally find in a hotel suite. These include amenities like coffee makers, tea stations, candles, and even boutique soaps and high-end towels. These can really make you feel well taken care of and can add a fancy, extravagant look and feel to your bedroom (not to mention actual functional convenience, as well!).

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

Custom Beddings

Another up-and-coming trend is to pick out custom beddings for your room. We’re not talking about tacky pillows with your initials on them, or blankets with cheesy graphics. Rather, we’re referring to selections of custom fabrics that have been converted into beddings. These include silks, cottons, and other natural fibers that provide you with a look and feel that you can’t get with store-bought items. While this may seem costly at first, you’d be surprised at the deals you can score by linking up with a professional fabric dealer in your area.

Regional Themes

A good way to provide coherency for your bedroom decor is to work with a theme. Popular themes this year will include decor that is light, breezy, and open. These styles use lighter colors like cream and off-white, and focus on lighter bedsheets rather than heavy comforters. Examples include Mediterranean decor, oasis themes, and coastal/beach themes. These are perfect for San Diego homes!

Best Bedroom Interior Decorating Trends for Inspiration

Multi-Purpose Decor and Design

The master bedroom has become more than just a place to sleep — it’s now become an all-in-one space where you can do multiple tasks without going anywhere. It’s perfectly acceptable now to have various uses for the bedroom.

For instance, you can dedicate a corner of the room for a crafting/hobby station; or, you can have a designated spot for reading. As referenced above, you can have a small area where you can drink the coffee you brewed up in your room.  Along with these activities, you can also integrate decor to highlight the space, such as framed artwork or other hanging items. It’s your room — you can do as you please with it!

The entire function and purpose of the master bedroom has greatly expanded. Along with that, the opportunities for new decor ideas has also grown.

We have the perfect bedroom furniture items and packages for rental to help you create your own personal suite!
