Area Rugs in Monrovia

Monrovia Area Rugs

Home decor matters a lot to me ever since my grandmother entered into an online sweepstake to win an HGTV million dollar home.  She showed me the house that was built in Florida and I noticed that the interior designer picked out every color scheme, fabric, and all the home decor from the pillows, light fixtures, couches, beds and wall art.  I was amazed at how the home’s the interior designer had a great eye for coordinating all accessories.  On the HGTV show the designer took the tv audience through her shopping experience which included every item she picked out and the meticulous way she looked through all the things and chose just the right home decor for every room and place.  This experience taught me a lot about beauty in decorating.  The satisfying thing about home decor design is someone else someone else appreciating and admiring your taste and ideas in decorating when looking for area rugs in Monrovia.


The HGTV house that my grandmother wanted was won by another person. The house actually was built in a city 30 minutes away from us.  After a couple of years in the house, the person who won the house and his family could not afford the taxes on the house and moved back where they were originally from.  My grandmother took this opportunity to go see the home and she brought me along.  I had an up close  and personal experience observing all the beautiful home decor and I was hooked from that point on.


Being a guy interested in home design is not as popular as a woman, but with several men designers like Tom Ford, David Arquette, Gianni Versace, and others have opened the door for the men to be comfortable and included in this profession. My favorite decorating tips are to have an explosion of colors but never overdone.  I like pictures of animals, like pink flamingos, beautiful small dogs,  floral arrangements are always a joy to work with.  Abstract paintings, cushy pillows, big push mattresses, couches, and chairs.

But nothing brings out the beauty in the home like large cushy and traditional area rugs, from sink down rugs to fabric flat rugs for people who may exercise or do yoga on.  Also some people like the fabric flat rugs when they have allergy problems.  The beauty of home decor and design to me is coordinating colors from the rugs, couches, chairs, bedspreads and comforter sets to the curtains in the home.  What completes and bring interior design to its full splendor is well crafted metal wall art.  The multiple intricate designs in black, bronze, frost color and other shades and colors do what no other home decor does in bringing out the natural beauty in the home.  The metal wall art gives the home a sense of ambiance of a time past but stately while being elegant and warm.  I believe home without metal wall art is not complete, like a tablet without a pen.


Another great tip in interior design is not to have too many pictures up on the wall, where it will look cluttered.  I also recommend using a wood stick tape measure better than the other kind because it holds its position and, stays in place better when you place pictures side by side to keep them in sync.  I believe that you should always have your furniture in place before you put the pictures on the wall to be sure it is put exactly where it is needed so you do not have to make unnecessary nail holes in your wall to reposition the pictures and other wall art.


One of the greatest joys and tips about decorating a home is that you do not have to spend a lot of money to have a beautiful home.  My aunt and uncle had a home built two years ago I went to  goodwill and other thrift stores and I found new accessories, wall decor and other home decor essentials.  Stores like Kirklands, Bed Bath and Beyond and other stores regularly give new things to Goodwill and other stores, also if a box is damaged with items in it or items that has small and not noticeable scratches, those will be donated also.  When my aunt and uncle had a house warming,  and the guest commented on how beautiful the pictures, wall art and other accessories that I purchased.  These compliments really made me feel great.  Since that time I have helped others decorate their homes.
