Tips to make your home a luxury home

luxury homeLuxury is a state of mind translated into the physical environment around us. How do you make a plainly furnished house look luxurious?
Let’s start from the the living room or the salon as that is the place most frequented by our guests. First of all, choose plenty of colors but make sure that the colors agree with each other. If your sofa set is mustard, you could team it up with a bunch of cushions in satin and, each one of a different color like green, mauve and peach with a subtle lining of gold. Hints of gold always add that element of luxury to a place. Keep a center table with a glass top and make sure there is no clutter below it. Keep it clean. Cover the lower shelf with a nice little round mat, which has beautifully embroidered patterns on it. Detailed patterns also make it interesting. On the table top, place a large ceramic plate with a beautiful golden pattern drawn on it. You could place some chocolates wrapped in golden paper and throw in some pot pouri. If you have plane curtains, you could tie them around with satin ribbons of a contrasting color and let the long loose ends hang.

Promotional Bags

There are many imprinted items to include at your next business conference or meeting, including pens, promotional folders, promotional bags, and notebooks. You can combine all these into one package, or use them separately. However you decide to go, these are very useful for convention or promotional gifts.

Having your company or product imprint on your gift items or attendee packages gives your advertising investment a dual purpose. You get publicity at the event, and later on as the attendees continue using your gifts. This helps give you a better reach for your message, and longer life than if you just used printed flyers or in show advertising.  (more…)

At home or at a stadium?

For sports fans, there are some decisions that are tough, and some that are pretty easy. When confronted with the choice of watching a football game at home on television or watching it live at a stadium, you would be hard pressed to find any real football fans who would choose anything other than watching the game up close and personal. Simply put, football fans are different than other sports fans. It’s just a fact of life that they like to get in the action a little bit more.

Watching a game in the stadium is the only real way to experience a football game. When you are there in support of your side, you can actually make a difference. Supporters who pull together for their team provide the spirit and the background for their players to go forward with a great performance. This is especially true at the highest levels, where fans are more fanatical than ever. English Premier League tickets are hard to come by, and this is the reason. There is plenty of demand for these tickets, as people are more than happy to eat them up every time they hit the open market.  (more…)

BBQ Islands with a Built in Gas Grill

What better way is there to bring friends and family together than hosting an outdoor dinner party where you cook on a built in gas grill? Today, you will find more and more homes installing outdoor kitchens fitted for more enjoyable dinner gatherings and entertaining guests. There are numerous different outdoor kitchen designs which are completely customizable by the owner of the home. The outdoor kitchens with BBQ islands don’t have to take up much space and there is no limit on what you can install in them. Whether it is BBQ islands, a built in gas grill, or an outdoor fireplace, the possibilities are endless! One of the reasons these outdoor kitchens are so sought after is because there are many advantages to cooking in outdoor kitchens that you can’t get from cooking indoors.

First of all, the flavors created in foods cooked in outdoor kitchens are much more tasteful and bold than standard indoor kitchen foods. Cooking on a built in gas grill creates a much larger degree of heat than any oven or stove top could create. This is nice because it brings out bold flavors in foods by caramelizing the exterior of some foods. This brown, golden color the food creates brings out the best flavors in some foods, such as onions for example. Also, the built in gas grill located in BBQ islands can be teamed up with a smoker box to create that unique, smoked flavor only found in quality BBQ food dishes. Smoker boxers create flavors such as mesquite and hickory which add distinct and unique aromas and flavors to compliment your food and entire backyard. There is no way to create this cooking experience indoors with a standard oven or stove top. (more…)
