I Adore the Firefly Art Print by The Design Confidential via @thdesconf


At long last I am super excited to annouce Confidential Print Shop is open for business and printable art is first on the menu. I have actually had the shop set up for months, but I was feeling extremely anxious about hitting the publish button on this post. I’m not entirely sure why, but it most likely stems from a fear of failure. Truth be told, setting up a storefront and selling something that is uniquely yours and not made by someone else, is terrifying. Because what if no one cares? What if everyone hates it and never buys a single thing? Does that mean they don’t like you or your work? Is it a reflection of how the public perceives your taste level? As a design professional, this is a monumentally difficult hurdle to jump because the answer is probably yes. Read

Interior Design History: Decorating Styles Through the AgesBuildDirect Blog: Life at Home

Reading Time: 2 minutes

For as long as humanity has been a species, we’ve decorated.

From the ancient cave-paintings of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, to the fluted columns of early Western civilization, to modernist architecture into the 20th century, and now to 21st Century eclecticism, we’ve taken pride in our homes and in our communities by celebrating the wonders of aesthetics and practical design.

Are there any common threads in the history of interior design and exterior design? What have the Ancient Egyptians got in common with the Art Deco cities of the 1920s jazz age? And what design elements are we utilizing today in the bright and shining 21st Century that echo our illustrious interior design and architectural past?

Well, I hope that this brief history of design will shed some light on where we’ve come from, and where we’re going.

Take a look!

9 Tips for Arranging Furniture in a Living Room or Family Room – Schneiderman’s {the blog}

Beautiful living room - arranging furniture around stone fireplace and TV.

One of the things that we suggested in our post on Furniture Shopping Tips was to measure your room and try out different furniture placement scenarios – either on paper or using a room planner – prior to shopping.

We still think that’s pretty great advice, but what if arranging furniture isn’t one of your strong points?  Or you’ve never had to do it before?

We’ve got some tips and general guidelines that will help:

ARRANGING FURNITURE:

1. Determine function.

Think about how you want this room to function. What activities will be taking place in the space (TV viewing, games, conversation, work, etc.)?

How many people do you need to comfortably seat?  Will your family always be sitting or will you need a spot to lay or lounge?  Or more than one?
