5 Layout Ideas to Incorporate the Molded Plywood Coffee Table

Coffee tables are often underestimated assets that aren’t really considered a big deal when decorating. However, incorporating such a table is an art because with the right décor arrangement you can grant it a prominent and beautiful place in your home. The goal should be to capitalize on their usability and their attractive form without disrupting the decorum in the rest of the room. The intriguing proportions including the alcove middle and exquisitely clean aura of the Molded Plywood Coffee Table make it an excellent addition to any mid-century modern living room. With items like this, you need to consider particular properties including size and scale before positioning it and things around it. Luckily styling this table is pretty easy to master if you browse through the collection of layout ideas we’ve listed below:

  1. The foundation for a classical setup:

Displays like this are the basic, mainstream go-to option for a boxed-in living space curated for the purpose of conversational areas. The timeless aura of the Plywood Coffee Table does not seem out of place in an all-wood scheme with a singular contrasting sofa piece. If you’re aiming to showcase accessories, antiquities or simply providing a convenient counter for you and others to place miscellaneous items, this setup would be ideal for you. Owing to the accommodating infrastructure of wooden furniture pieces you can add a multitude of decorative pieces that are highlighted by the large bay windows in the back.

  1. Recline in a rustic masterpiece:

Compact and made up of elegant curves, the Plywood Coffee Table is an era and style-fluid article, making it a versatile option for both traditional and mid-century modern living spaces. The simple yet tasteful design featured in the image above incorporates a very rustic vibe with the matching coffee table and chair set, propped upon a charming patterned carpet. There’s a vibrant liveliness infused within this room because of the fusion of various wooden textures and décor elements. The hushed white background and similarly humble couch allow the table to truly stand out, whilst the arching lamp directed towards the tabletop makes it the focal point of the room. Incorporating a sentimental ceramic or family heirloom in a setting like this adds a special touch.

  1. Supplement maximalist décor:

A simple but effective illusion showcased by the humble silhouette of the Plywood Coffee Table is beautifully demonstrated in the sample above. Here it is used as more of an accent piece to underwhelm the myriad of patterns, textures, and elements being produced by all the differing furnishings. Not to be outdone by the graphic curtains and flooring, the natural oak of the table and pop from the potted plant pull focus due to expert layering. The compact shape and curvaceous dimensions of the stand act as a safe-spacing characteristic in more constrained environments. The overarching theme of pastels perfectly complements the subtle coloring of the table itself.

  1. Target one statement piece:

This picturesque arrangement is proof that minimalism doesn’t have to be boring if you just put a little thought into it. The muted personality of the Plywood Coffee Table paired with the lively and bright amber couches in an L-seating add a dimension of visual appeal. This minimalistic setup is only further enhanced by the expansive windows that let you peek into lush and beautiful greenery whilst simultaneously bathing the entire room in natural light. Once again all the secondary furniture articles are positioned facing the coffee table as this acts as an anchor, tying the whole room together making this a fantastic mid-century modern living room to relax in.

  1. Mix rustic with modern hues:

Adding earth tone elements to a modern layout with the Plywood Coffee Table, artisan bowls, fresh flowers, and ample wooden shelves or bookcases gives the room a chic yet eclectic vibe simultaneously. The fusion of organic and contemporary tones is accomplished by the appropriate clustering of the supplementary furniture articles. By distributing a few Eames Wooden Tables in the periphery of the centre table you can craft a tasteful and refined room bursting with personality. The splash of colour provided by the ornaments placed on the table and the horde of books in the background works beautifully with the natural and cosy aura of the mid-century modern living room.

Every design idea presented above depicts distinct and aesthetically pleasing samples that any contemporary or traditional interior designer would highly appreciate. You can definitely take matters into your own hands with the Plywood Coffee Table by adding personal touches.

A Tangled Summer – Book Review #20

I was expecting to whizz through A Tangled Summer as it didn’t look like a long book, but for some reason, it seemed to last forever!

A Tangled Summer

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

In the West Country village of Summerstoke, the family at Marsh Farm are too preoccupied with living their lives to notice the farm sliding into ruin.

Charlie Tucker, dreaming of victory in a motocross race and flirting with the local barmaid, is unaware of the danger the farm is in; while little sister Alison, busy with her A levels, is determined to dispense with her virginity before the end of the summer.

Their brother Stephen is hopelessly in love with the star of the local Am-Dram society, while mother Jenny dreams of escaping into the arms of the local vet.

Fed up with watching her family squander their birthright, septuagenarian grandmother Elsie—the only Tucker with a lover—issues an ultimatum: either her grandsons find brides by the end of the year, or they lose their share of the farm. And that’s only half the problem.

Up on the hill in Summerstoke House, the land-grabbing, unscrupulous, Hugh and Veronica (call-me-Vee) Lester watch the demise of Marsh Farm with undisguised pleasure. If they can get the Tuckers turfed off the land, their dreams of owning a bigger stud farm will become a reality; and if they can help hasten the demise of Marsh Farm with a few schemes of their own.

And at Summerstoke Manor, in the heart of the village, live the three elderly Miss Merfields and their ancient nanny with nothing better to do than pull strings and watch.

My Thoughts

I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads. It was an ok read, but as I said, it seemed to go on forever. I don’t think it needed to be as long as it was.

The Tucker family were likeable and I liked that it was set in a country village. I think there’s another book after this one, however, I’m not really that bothered about reading it so whilst I did like most of the characters, they didn’t make that much of an impression on me.

9 Tips To Help You Capture The Perfect Wildlife Photo

Most of us absolutely adore taking photos. We have access to all sorts of equipment at our fingertips – professional quality cameras, lighting kits, backdrops, tripods, or just a really high-quality smartphone camera. Social media networks, particularly Instagram, give us a platform to share our photography efforts with not only our close family and friends but with a global audience. More people than ever are taking photography courses and are editing their photos in ways that were only available to professional photographers a few years ago. On the internet, you can find guides galore to taking the perfect shot of your children, or of your pet dog, or even of your dinner. Here, we look at something a little different – nature and wildlife. This can be a tricky genre to shoot because you can’t really stage it or reshoot it – animals and insects will not pose for you-you have to be there, ready and waiting to grab that perfect moment.

9 Tips to Capture Unique Wildlife and Nature Shot Photos

  1. Have the right equipment

First things first, you need to make sure you have the right equipment. It is said that the best camera you have is the one in your hand – whether that is a fancy DSLR, a basic point and shoot, a disposable camera or your mobile phone. That still stands absolutely true. Sometimes though, having the right equipment helps.  A tripod stabilizes your camera and reduces the chance of blurs. It is also a must-have if you take night time or low light shots. If you haven’t got one, or forget it, see if you can find something to balance your camera safely on. Do not forget a case to protect your phone or camera, especially if you are shooting outdoors. You may also want to invest in some basic editing software. Lightroom and Photoshop are relatively inexpensive to purchase, around £10 each for a month for a subscription, and allow you to turn your photos into something really special. If you are shooting on your phone, there are plenty of apps available to allow you to do it on your phone, or you can use airdrop to send photos from your phone to your Apple computer, or vice versa. If you are not quite sure how to do this, you can find a guide to it here

  1. Scrap the rules and experiment – look for new perspectives

There are many ‘rules’ when it comes to photography, but our best advice is to break as many of those as you want. You often know before you take it how you want your picture to turn out – even if it breaks all of the rules, go for it. Want to get down on the floor, or climb up on a chair?  Do it!

  1. Composition

Ok, so above we told you to scrap the rules, but sometimes there are some that will really help you. There is the rule of thirds: imagine your frame split into nine grids – a lot of cameras, even the most basic of ones,  have a setting where you can make this grid visible. The points where the lines meet are the best spots for positioning the focal point of your shot.  Another composition technique that works really well when you are trying to get perfect wildlife and nature photos are leading lines. These are natural lines within the frame that draw your eyes to something.

  1. Get up close to your subject

This can be a more tricky one if you are trying to get shots of wildlife – they do not tend to like cameras up in their faces. Obviously, on pretty much all cameras now you have a zoom feature which is absolutely fine. However, this digital zoom can make it go all pixelated, which is never a good thing. Optical zooms work much better, but if you have a set of binoculars to hand, try putting the lens of your camera at one of the eyepieces.

  1. Shoot in the Golden Hour

Golden hour is the time around sunrise or sunset, when the light is much softer and diffused, casting everything in a beautiful golden glow. This is the best time of day to get photos – it avoids bright spots and dark shadows. Cloudy days are also surprisingly good for photos because again, the light is naturally filtered and softer than harsh sunlight.

  1. Patience

Wildlife shots are particularly difficult to capture because animals are not natural posers. To get that perfect photo, you may have to wait hours – even days or weeks – but once you have got it, it will be all worth it.

  1. Take Advantage of Burst Mode

It is really good practice to capture action shots using your camera’s rapid-fire or “burst mode” setting, which most modern camera and smartphone cameras. Most cameras can take between three and 20 images per second, increasing your odds of nailing that perfect shot. Just remember to use a memory card with a write speed of at least 95MB/second, so that your camera does not seize up while processing the photos.

  1. Use Macro

A macro lens is an excellent tool for shooting small reptiles and tiny insects that typically go unnoticed. These close-range lenses are available for most DSLR and mirrorless camera models, while some point-and-shoots and mobile phone cameras have a built-in macro setting that can be switched on. Macro photography forces you to get up close and personal to your subject, so remember to move slowly and avoid making any sudden movements.

  1. Practice, practice. practise

Like anything, practice makes perfect. Keep looking for opportunities to take wildlife and nature photos – there are plenty of them! Take your camera everywhere you go ready for that elusive and unique shot!

Subtle Kitchen Improvements That’ll Make An Instant Impact

Photo Credit

Today’s post is all about subtlety. You all know the different ways of renovating a kitchen and completely upgrading its look. But, what about some low-cost ideas that will make an impact right away? These home improvement ideas are things that most people might not notice immediately, but the effect they have on your kitchen is seen instantly. The best part is, they don’t require a great deal of work, and they can be done whenever you like!

Soft-Close cabinet hinges

How many of you have to deal with cabinets that always slam shut? Whether you do it yourself or your kids are responsible, it creates a problem. The noise is horrible, but your cabinets end up damaged as well. So, some soft-close cabinet hinges will sort things right out. With these, your cabinets won’t slam shut as the mechanism kicks in to slowly ease them to the closed position. Not only does this reduce needless banging and slamming, but it also gives your kitchen a more modern feel to it.

Washing machine mat

Some of you are probably scratching your heads at this idea. What the heck is a washing machine mat, and how will it improve your kitchen? Well, when you’re looking for the best price washing machine, you end up with loads of options full of great features. The only problem is that – no matter which one you choose – it’s incredibly loud and vibrates like crazy. This is a particular issue for washing machines in kitchens as the vibrations usually cause the surrounding cabinets to shake. So, a washing machine mat is a special rubber mat that goes under your machine and helps reduce the vibrations and make your appliance quieter. Visually, there’s not a great deal of difference. But, the feel of your kitchen is instantly improved as you don’t have some great big think rocking and vibrating whenever there’s a wash on!

LED lighting

The beauty of a kitchen is that you can experiment with so many great lighting ideas. With LED lighting, you can brighten up different areas of your kitchen. Get some underneath your wall cabinets to light up the countertop below. It creates a really gorgeous glow that transforms the way your kitchen looks and feels. Additionally, you can get some installed in the cabinets themselves for an even greater effect. As far as visual improvements go, this is probably the best and most subtle.

Upgraded appliances

Lastly, you can drastically boost the aesthetic appeal of your kitchen by improving a few of the common appliances. A new kettle, toaster, and microwave will give your kitchen an instant upgrade. These things can get dirty over time, and they can also just look old and unsightly. So, some new ones will make a huge difference. My tip is to ensure they’re matching, which only adds to the kitchen improvement.


The point of these ideas is to show you that it’s possible to improve your kitchen without doing anything too crazy. There’s no need for a full renovation that costs thousands of pounds, just try a few of these subtle ideas instead.

7 Sophisticated Ways To Bring Elegance To Your Abode

Having a beautiful, pristine home is something you will always be proud of. Whether you’re welcoming in guests or putting your feet up after a long day at work, you want an amazing abode that makes you feel completely at ease. There are a few ways that you can take your dreamy dwelling to the next level so that you can add sophistication into the mix. You want to create home improvements that pay off, so don’t be afraid to add a touch of chic style to your happy home. There are so many innovative ways in which you can do this without breaking the bank. Take a look at some of the following ideas for a hint of inspiration and you will soon be able to take your home to a new level of elegance.


  1. Innovative Images


If you are somebody who enjoys photography, you will already understand the power that images can have in your home. Why not have a look at printing some of your latest captures and framing them on the wall? Of course, you could head to your local home store and pick up some artwork, but this wouldn’t have the same personal touch as your own image. Whether you have a collection of stunning landscapes or tasteful portraits, you can use these innovative images to bring another dimension to your home.

  1. Smart Soft Furnishings


Now is your chance to really let your hair down when it comes to soft furnishings. Understanding what kind of patterns, shades, shapes and textures work in your home can make the world of difference. You should aim to incorporate a different pop of colour into each room in your home. You could be working with a completely nude living space, but adding a hint of electric blue or ruby red will really lift it off its feet. Soft furnishings can come in the form of cosy cushions, chic curtains and many other useful accessories. They not only serve as a functional addition to your home, but they also enhance the smart and sophisticated style. Use soft furnishings to your advantage and find pieces that exude elegance and class.


  1. Soothing Shades


There are so many reasons why neutral colours are the best way to go when decorating your home. First of all, it gives you a totally blank canvas to work with when it comes to accessorising. If you use too many bright colours you are limiting yourself when it comes to the finishing touches for your home. Opt for pastels if you want a hint of colour in your home, or even better go for creams, beiges and whites. You can have much more fun injecting colourful cushions, rugs and curtains if you have a neutral backdrop.


  1. Magic Minimalism


Having a cluttered home is never going to be soothing for any homeowner, so minimalism is definitely the way to go. Think about all of the various stray items around your home. Could they be moved or boxed up in another place? More often than not, ornaments, excess frames and other accessories can clutter up your peaceful home environment. You might find that a minimalistic approach to your space brings the touch of class you are looking for.


  1. Stunning Scents


Have you ever walked into somebody’s home and been instantly intrigued by the aroma? Believe it or not, every single home has a unique scent that sets it apart from any other. You now have the chance to personalise this scent to suit your tastes and preferences. You can make a huge impact on your guests by surrounding them with lovely smells and soothing aromas. This will also help you to feel more comfortable in your own home. By using candles, diffusers or incense sticks your lovely abode can smell like lavender or vanilla in an instant!



  1. Savvy Storage


Knowing how to manage the storage in your home will bring you one step closer to complete sophistication and elegance. There are so many clever methods you can adopt when it comes to storage space, especially if you are working with a smaller apartment or tiny home. Why not invest in chic leather storage cubes that can also be used as footstools in your living space? You can use these to keep DVDs, books and other odds and ends so that you don’t need to have them on display. Incorporating these small, but savvy storage elements into your home will help you to keep it looking clean and pristine all year round too.


  1. Cosy Corners


There are a number of ways in which you can make your home cosier and more comforting. Having a corner in your home that makes you feel completely at ease is very important; this area in your home can serve as your little escape every time you get stressed or overwhelmed. It could be a cosy corner in your living room that contains a huge, welcoming armchair and your favourite book. You might prefer to create a blissful environment in the bathroom so that you can escape and have a bubble bath whenever you feel anxious. Find the spot that makes you feel completely at ease and make it your own. As far as sophistication goes, this could be one of the best additions to your home in a long time!


Every homeowner is completely unique when it comes to their style, tastes and preferences. There are a number of different ways to incorporate unique interior decisions into your amazing abode so that your flair has truly been added. You might find that some of these ideas appeal to you and others don’t. Use the ones that make you feel most comfortable; some might be in keeping with your current style choices and others might be way out of your comfort zone. All in all, you should use this as an opportunity to create a more sleek, sophisticated and elegant vibe throughout your happy home.

3 Easy Ways To Dress Your Windows

Changing the way you usually dress your windows can make a huge difference to the feel and style of your room.
Window dressings provide privacy as well as protecting you from the harsh glare in the Summer and keeping the heat in during the Winter.

Window dressings are an often overlooked, but very important feature of any room. It’s important to do some research to help you choose the right style, not only for your taste but also to make sure they’re doing the job you need them to do.

Of course, your lovely window dressings can be totally let down if your windows aren’t in the best condition. For quality new windows at the right price, check out Budget Windows in St Albans.

Dress Your Windows

1 – Curtains

dress your windows - voile panels

When it comes to curtains, the choice can seem endless and maybe even a little overwhelming.

If you’re after a window dressing that makes a statement, layering is a good choice. These light and dark curtains look great together and let in lots of light, making the room feel nice and airy.
If you like waking with natural light, these curtains are a great choice as the light can still get through, but it will be muted so you’re not suddenly awakened by bright sunlight in your eyes.

2 – Blinds

full length blinds

Before buying blinds from DotcomBlinds for your windows, you need to decide which type of blind will work best for your needs.
If your space is small and doesn’t get much natural light, a good choice is matchstick blinds. They let light in while maintaining your privacy.

Roman blinds are also a good choice for small spaces. They don’t create the fabric bulk you get with curtains. The pleats look lovely when the blind is up during the day then it hangs flat against the window at night.

Roller blinds can be a great choice. They’re easy to fit to size yourself. They can also be swapped out easily for different colours and patterns, especially if you like to change your decor with the seasons.

Like curtains, roller blinds and roman blinds come in a huge variety of colours and fabric types so all you need to do is find the right one to fit the room decor.

3 – Combination Of Both

combine curtains and blinds

If you like the look and feel of curtains, but they let in too much light in the mornings, pair your curtains with blinds. The curtains need never be closed, they can be purely decorative because the blinds will be doing all the work.

Choosing curtains and blinds that complement each other, but don’t match, will enhance the design of the room.

Dare To Be Different

When you upgrade your uPVC windows, maybe think about choosing a window dressing you’ve never had before to show off your shiny new windows.
Choose geometric patterns in bold colours to inject some colour into the room or choose some calming botanicals in those rooms where you like to relax.

The choice is endless, go and have fun choosing new window dressings and maybe even new windows!

Scar Tissue – Book Review #19

I’ve been a Chili Peppers fan for over 20 years so I was really looking forward to reading Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis.

Scar Tissue

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

In 1983, four self-described “knuckleheads” burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L.A. with their own unique brand of cosmic hardcore mayhem funk. Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. Though the band has gone through many incarnations, Anthony Kiedis, the group’s lyricist and dynamic lead singer, has been there for the whole roller-coaster ride. Whether he’s recollecting the influence of the beautiful, strong women who have been his muses, or retracing a journey that has included appearances as diverse as a performance before half a million people at Woodstock or an audience of one at the humble compound of the exiled Dalai Lama, Kiedis shares a compelling story about the price of success and excess.

Scar Tissue is a story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption–a story that could only have come out of the world of rock

My Thoughts

I don’t usually read the reviews before reading a book because I don’t want them to put me off. I should have stuck to that rule!

The first few reviews were by people who hadn’t finished the book because they didn’t like it. I was really looking forward to reading it before I read the reviews so I decided to forget them and dive in.

I really enjoyed it, probably because he lives in a world totally alien to me and it kind of validated my early teenage choices about drug use. I’ve never tried any drugs because I was always afraid of losing control. I’d heard stories from friends who had dabbled with drugs and far from making me want to experience the things they were telling me about, I was thinking, how can they do that to themselves?

Reading the book made me want to listen to their music again. I rarely have time to just sit and enjoy music anymore as I used to and I loved putting YouTube on the TV and having their music on while I was working.

I was actually quite sad when I came to the end of the book!

Reasons To Use A Dehumidifier At Home All Year

When it comes to buying home appliances, many people battle with the decision on whether they need the device or not. For you to purchase and use a dehumidifier in your home, it would help if you appreciate the benefits it has to your health, comfort, and home. You can get information from

Add pops of colour to your living room

Prevention of mold growth in your home

Mold growth is a worry many people have, especially if they live in a highly humid environment. Besides being unsightly since it damages the walls, mold causes health issues to those living in the house. Some of the allergy reactions to mold include skin rashes, throat irritation, and asthma attacks.

If you already have a mold problem, a dehumidifier will ensure no more growth takes place. You will need to deal with the existing mold but need not worry about future growth if you use a dehumidifier all year. If you have asthma attacks, it is best to play it safe by using a dehumidifier to reduce the risk of more attacks.

Protection of your property

Humidity can damage your property, primarily furniture and fittings made of wood, as well as any metal that is susceptible to rust. Using a dehumidifier in your home will protect the wooden items from getting ruined by humidity. Metallic items not made of stainless steel will also become rusty, sometimes sooner than you expected because of the daily exposure to humid conditions.

Reasons To Use A Dehumidifier - protect wooden homes

This will affect your home’s aesthetic and will be costly in the long run since you will keep replacing the damaged items. The damage will be worse if most of your home is made up of wood. You will not just be concerned with the appearance of your home, but soon your worries will be more significant since the structural integrity of your home will be in question.

Use a dehumidifier for your comfort

Humidity is not just bad for your property, it is also quite uncomfortable for you. Humidity affects the temperature in your home. You will find yourself cranking up the air conditioning to cool the air further. The situation is made worse during the warmer months. By using a dehumidifier, your home will be at a bearable temperature that will leave you comfortable in your space.

Improve the quality of air in your home

Although some people feel they need an air purifier to do this, sometimes it is challenging to get great quality of air if the humidity levels are too high. A dehumidifier will cleanse the air making you more comfortable, and healthier since you will not be exposed to toxins in the air that survive best in humid conditions.

There are dehumidifiers of different sizes. If you are worried that you will get a dehumidifier that won’t work effectively because of the size of the rooms in your home, you need not worry. You will find a dehumidifier that is of the right size, and one that is highly effective in keeping you and your home safe.
