A Tuscan affair {Rianka’s Weddings}Daily Interior Design Ideas

Michael & Ranay came to South Africa to celebrate their wedding with family and friends at the beautiful Green Leaves Country Lodge and Venue in Hartbeespoort, North West. They met at a work function. Ranay joined the company just as Michael was making his exit from the company. Their friendship blossomed into something more just as Michael was leaving to Australia for a few weeks of work. Their first official date was via Skype; they each had a glass of wine and pretended they were sitting across each other at a table in a restaurant. Even though there was a six hour time difference, Michael stayed up just for her, 3 years later they moved to Australia together.

How did you propose?
About four months before I proposed I called up Ranay’s father to ask for his blessing to marry his daughter. In July I surprised Ranay with a weekend away to the coastal town of Mandurah. She thought the weekend away was for her birthday, which was a week later, so she had no idea I was going to propose. We stayed in a hotel next to the Quay right by the ocean and my plan was to propose on the beach at sunset. Unfortunately we only managed to get there after sunset and I thought ‘well if you can’t have sunset the next best thing would be to have sunrise’. So the next morning we went for a stroll along the shore line. I was very nervous, and words just came rambling out of my mouth before I asked her the big question. After I told her how much she means to me and how she has changed my life for the better I got down on one knee and asked Ranay to be my wife.

How long did the planning take?
The planning started right after we got engaged – so 18 months give or take. Planning a wedding from Australia was not easy, but with help from family and friends in South Africa, we managed to do a great job. Choosing vendors while in Australia was the hardest part, as you could only base your decision by what’s posted on their websites. We only went to view the venue and meet other vendors two weeks before the wedding. That was very nerve wrecking for the Bride.

Was the groom involved in the planning at all?
The groom was indeed involved in the planning. He helped with addressing all the invitations in calligraphy, he had a small hand in the table decorations, we decided on the venue, photographer, DJ, Cake and Officiate together and he helped where he could with everything else.

How did you decide on the colours/theme of the day?
Theme/Colour was a difficult decision, we started looking at a black and white colour scheme, and as we looked for ideas from magazines and websites the black and white colour scheme felt overdone. We also realised that black and white would not fit in well with our venue choice. We then decided on a classic romantic theme with champagne as the main colour and soft touches of cream and white to fit in with Green Leaves Tuscan venue.

Where there any DIY project on the day?
Because of the distance we did not do much DIY items for the wedding but we were hands on with all the details, especially the miniature cakes and boxes for the miniature cakes. We also addressed the invitations in calligraphy ourselves.

Do you have any advice for brides-to-be?

  • Use Rianka’s Wedding Photography as your photographer – they are amazing!
  • Decide on a date and venue ASAP, especially if you are set on getting married on a specific date, as venues gets booked our months in advance. As long as a venue is set then the rest will fall in place, because the venue does play a part in your Theme/Color scheme.
  • Remember this is You and your Partners day, so plan a wedding to your style and not what you think other people would want.
  • Don’t do it all by yourself, friends and family’s help is a big part of arranging your big day.

4. A runner is the “magic carpet” inside your home. Keep furniture away, and leave the spaceclear and open. Don’t let the rug extend the complete length of the entryway so that the front door opens easily. A trick you can use is to paint a runner on the floor instead. It’s unique and has the same effect.

Impressive Yet Elegant Walk-In Closet IdeasDaily Interior Design Ideas

Walk in closets have always been a symbol of luxury, but the days when a walk in closet exclusively belonged in a mansion are over. We have some of the mostfunctional and beautiful walk in closet ideas to help you create an impeccable, organized dressing area.

If your clothes and accessories are works of art to you, it’s time to display them properly. With some good design choices, you can have (and enjoy) the walk in closet of your dreams. The first thing to decide when considering walk in closet ideas is how to create the most functional space possible.

Start with thesethreepractical steps:

1. Select a Walk-In Closet Shape

In closet design, there are three general possibilities:

–an “L” shaped closet
–a “U” shaped closet
–a straight walk in closet

Closets in the form of “L” occupy two of the walls of the room leaving you space to move. A “U” occupies three walls for maximum storage. The straight closet design allows for his and hers sides and works well in smaller areas. Depending on closet size, all three shapes benefit from an ottoman or seating area for putting on shoes or dressing.

2. Add Good Storage

Most of us have have lots of accessories, not to mention a wardrobe of seasonal items that need to be stored most of the year. Having dedicated storage for all clothing and accessories makes it easier and less stressful to find the items when you need them. Adding plenty of drawers to your closet design is the best way to keep items organized and dust-free.

The right organizational plan consisting of shelving, hanging space, drawers and cabinets keeps a closet looking neat and uncluttered.

3. When Considering Walk In Closet Ideas, Choosing a Style is Key

Review walk in closet ideas and decide on a style for your closet. Contemporary styling is the best for a clean, uncluttered space to display your clothes beautifully. Have a definite style in mind to keep a walk in closet looking cohesive and stick with it!

Once you get the bones of your walk in closet in order, take inspiration and incorporate some picks from our nine must-have walk in closet ideas:

1. The Color White

No other color in the palette creates a better backdrop in your walk in closet for your clothes to shine. White is high-contrast, bright in what is normally a dark room and always looks crisp and new.

2. A Dressing Island

If you have the luxury of space, a dressing item is the perfect spot to drop all your things until you use them again. Islandscome in a variety of shapes and sizes. Be sure to select one with plenty of storage drawers and shelves to maximize storage. Add trays or boxes to your island top to catch smaller items likejewelry, pocket change or keys.

3. Innovative Accessory Displays

Create a beautiful and unique closet space by usinginnovative displays, like the shoewall above. Take inspiration from the hottest fashion boutiques to display your fashion objects. Some display ideas include:

–Mannequins
–Racks
–Retail jewelry displays
–Open bookcases
–Floating boxes and ledges

4. A Seating Area for Dressing

For your walk-in closet to be truly functional and a space you want to enjoy, you’ll need seating. An ottoman is the perfect solution. You can lay out outfits on the ottoman, or sit on it to get your shoes on. For additional storage, try a storage ottoman that opens up.

Depending on your closet shape, round ottomans work better in large open closets while narrow benches work best in straight, single-aisle closets.

5. A Vanity Section

One of the newest upgrades in the world of walk-in closet design is the built-in vanity. Regardless of the amount of space available, you can add one to your walk in closet. The key components to a vanity area include:

–A countertop
–A mirror. If wall space is not available, a portable mirror works, too
–Dedicated lighting. Use a lamp, a lighting bar or whatever lighting works best in your closet’s vanity space
–Drawers. We recommend drawers for easily storing all make-up and grooming tools when not in use
–A stool or seat. A stools work great in a small space because it can serve as a seat or as a ladder to reach taller places

6. Mirrors

You can never have too many mirrors in your walk-in closet. If you are space and wall challenged, consider upgrading your closet doors to mirrored. The multi-function doors will keep items organized while reflecting light and other parts of your closet, making your dressing area feel larger.

7. Cool Lighting

Set the mood with lighting in several ways including:

–Creating a design or focal point
–Adding mood lighting to the space
–Improving room brightness, especially when windows are not available
–Highlighting accessories
–Functioning as task lighting when dressing or applying make-up
–Showcasing your beautiful closet displays

Ever wondered how to get the lightbox effect, like the shoe wall in the image below? Mount a flourescent light fixture on the wall and add a white plexiglass backing to the bookshelf or cabinet in front of the fixture. The plexiglass will diffuse the flourescent light and cause the lightbox glow you see.

8. Artful Organization

Once you’ve invested in a walk-in closet upgrade, it’s time to showcase your items like a pro. Some ways to artfully organize your closet include:

–Grouping items like bags or shoes in one section
–Color coordinating all clothes and accessories
–Creating vignettes or combinations of your favorite items for display
–Adding favorite framed personal images or inspirationalphotos to your displays
–Including favorite art and fashion books on your shelves and counters
–Using a coordinated series of clothing hangers

Besides artfully displaying your items using the tips above, don’t over-do it. Like the image below, keep displays minimal and allow for open space to shine through. The saying, “less is more” is the secret to beautiful closet displays.

9. The Library Ladder

Make the most of your walk in closet by installing a coollibrary ladder. The ladder allows for easy access to items stored up high while adding a funky effect to your closet. The best part is that your ladder can be part of your display, where you can hang next day’s outfit or a couple of scarves ’til you need to use it.

Imagine having a room in your home that heals your mind, body and soul? Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a special room inside (or outside) of your home that’s devoted to peace, tranquility and your emotional well-being? A room that allows you to escape the daily stresses of life and connect with a higher power? A meditation room will give you a place to do exactly this.

We suggest that everyoneshouldcreate a space in theirhomes for daily meditation; a space that provides you with the opportunity to recharge your body both physically and mentally, and keep you balanced. The benefits of meditation are still being uncovered, but all discoveries to date show that meditation has a rich healing, transformative power like no other. Some studies have shown that meditation actually has the power to change the way our brains work.

While there is not a specific set of rules that need to be followed when creating a meditation room, there are some things you should take into consideration. Take some inspirationfrom the following ten ways to create your own mediation room, but most importantly, follow your mind and heart, only putting in elements you love—elements that create a personal feeling of zen-like bliss.

1) Choose a Feel-Good Space

You want to pick a room in your home that makes you feel good. This means a room that, when you walk into it, makes you smile. In addition, you want it to be a quiet room in the house, and definitely a room with a limited amount of traffic.

When choosing the room, pay attention to the lighting as well. For instance, a room that has a lot of naturallight will instantlyenhance your mood. This means that you might want to choose a room that faces the sun for the time of day you plan to meditate. Or better yet, a room that has a sunset view—now that would be a gorgeous way to begin meditation!

If you cannot find a ‘room’ that possesses these qualities, consider an outdoor space. This may be your patio, your deck, or even your floral garden. You want a place that allows you to relax your mind and your body, without being distracting.

2) Clean & Uncluttered

Speaking of distractions, there is nothing more distracting than a cluttered area, especially when you are trying to relax. You want to make sure there are minimal amounts of ‘extras’ in the room.

This means that you should not try setting up a meditation room in an office. There is too much going on in the space with a desk, papers, filing cabinets – not to mention the stressful thoughts that come with what’s in an office – work, bills, etc.

Consider emptying out the room to contain only a few elements. A few basic recommendations include a smalltable, a yoga mat, a throw rug, and a pillow for meditation.

3) Bring Nature Into Your Meditation Room

Nature is organically relaxing and healing, so it only makes sense that you bring some natural elements into the room where you want to relax and meditate. In fact, most believe that mediation is all about connecting yourself – mind and body – with nature and your surroundings. While it would be ideal to meditate outside in a calming, natural environment, it is not always possible if you live in a busy urban environment.

Consider adding touches of nature to your meditation room— it will instantly become infused with harmony and balance. You can choose any natural elements you prefer. This could be a plant (consider the scent of jasmine), a vase of cut flowers, jars filled with sand and seashells, or even a small water fountain.

In fact, a water fountain is a must for every mediation room. If you can’t meditate on the beach while the sounds of the changing ocean tides fill your ears, at least a small, indoor waterfall will offer similar soothing sounds (and will drown out the sounds of the bustling city outside your doors).

4) Play Meditative Music

Although not a necessary element, music can be very relaxing for many individuals. This is particularly beneficial for those who live in a busy city area, where the sounds of traffic, trains, and sirens are constantly coming through the walls.

The meditative music, although quietly played in the background, can help drown out all the other distractions within the home, allowing you to gain a tranquil and peaceful state while meditating—similar to the sound of the water fountain.

When it comes time to choose the music, it is recommended that you choose music without lyrics. It does not necessarily have to be classical music, but any sounds you find soothing, such as ocean sounds, birds chirping, or the whistling sounds of the wind. Make sure the tracks are long enough to continue playing through your entire mediation session, and consider putting the sounds on repeat to avoid interruption.

5) Aromatherapy

Another element to consider in your mediation room is aromatherapy. The use of essentialoils from plants, such as lavender, chamomile, and peppermint, can really soothe the soul, the mind, and the body.

From burning candles and incense, to heating oils, you can receive the benefits of aromatherapy while meditating. Not only does aromatherapy help you relax, but it also provides other benefits. This form of therapy is gaining momentum and is on its way to becoming a mainstream healing aide that is believed to stimulate brain function.

There has also been evidence to show it boosts the immune system, relieves muscle pain, and reduces or eliminates stress. These are all greatreasons why you should include aromatherapy in your meditation room.

6) Add a Personal Touch

When creating your mediation room, you definitely want to include some of your own personal touches. This can be any element, smell, sound, or object that particularly soothes your body and relaxes your mind.

Think of items, such as bells, chimes, crystals, a statue of Buddha, affirmation stones, beads, and artwork. Any of these are great elements for creating a serene and peaceful environment for you to focus solely on meditating.

Remember, however, that you do not want to overcrowd the space. It is important for a clean and clear environment to keep your mind open. Choose only a few pieces at a time, and swap them out for different ones now and again if you cannot decide.

7) Fresh Air is Important

Aside from the aromatherapy smells you have in the room, you also want to make sure you have fresh air. Fresh air has many benefits, including boosting your brainpower, improving your overall health, and helping you feel refreshed.

If your space is outdoors, this will not be difficult to obtain. However, if you are indoors, you want to make sure the room is well-ventilated, and you have the opportunity to experience a cool breeze now and again.

If you are in a room that does not have any windows or ceiling fans, consider bringing in a standing fan that also functions as an air purifier. Choose one that has ‘quiet’ technology, so that it does not interfere with your serene sounds.

8) A Serene Paint Palette

Aside from the physical elements and sensory objects, you also want to take into consideration the color of the room. You want to paint the room to match the mood you are trying to achieve.

Some may say that pastel shades are a much better option as opposed to bright or dark shades—thinking that pastels are more soothing and more relaxing. Although, others may argue this point and prefer a very dark paint palette— thinking the dark colors would make the room feel womb-like and envelope them in relaxation.

Regardless of the color you choose, room color affects your mood, so decide on one that calls to your meditative needs, and makes you feel calm and relaxed.

9) Lighting Makes a Difference

As was mentioned earlier, best-case scenario is that you find a room that has lots of natural light. To keep the room feeling cozy, however, you do want some sort of window treatments. It is recommended that you choose a sheer fabric in a light shade that will diffuse the light.

If the room you choose lacks natural light, you really want to focus on the light fixtures you choose. Depending on your personal preference, you may want dim lights or bright lights. Make sure you have the ability to have both options, because your mood can change from day-to-day.

If you have chosen an outdoor space, make sure the area is not too bright from sunlight during the time you wish to mediate. If possible, try to create a shade with an umbrella or a structure that allows you to hang sheer curtains. This will keep the sun from irritating your eyes and keeping your mind too awake.

10) No Technology Allowed

While there are no specific rules to creating a meditation room, we would like to make one hard-fast rule—no electronics, aside from your music player. This means, no phones allowed. From the distracting ‘ping’ of text messages, emails, and phone calls —just say no to phones in the meditation room.

You want to be able to ‘get away from it all’ when you are meditating, and a phone will not allow this to happen.

In addition to no phones, it is also best to avoid other electronics, such as videogame devices and the TV. While you enjoy relaxing in front of the TV, this is not the type of relaxation that you are trying to achieve during mediation.

There are many elements that you should consider when creating a mediation room. Choose a quiet spot to avoid noisy distractions and bring in elements of nature, creating a good base to start from.

Take what you have learned here and start looking around your home. You just may be surprised at what room brings you the relaxing feeling you are looking for, and deserve. Still your mind, erasing all the worldly issues, and open your body (and home) to the healing powers of meditation.
