Baer’s Furniture Reviews: Get a Clear Picture of the Furniture Buying Experience

Digital marketing has changed a lot about how businesses interact with their customers, but some things have remained the same. A good example of something that hasn’t changed in the digital age is the importance of word-of-mouth advertising. Even in the information age, most people make decisions based on reviews they read online or on social media. Online reviews are the newest iteration of word of mouth.

The importance of online reviews has increased as people become more distrustful of traditional advertising. Whether they know the reviewer, 69% of local customers trust online reviews as much as recommendations from a friend, and 84% of shoppers in the U.S. use reviews to help them make their decision.

1) Balance the Old and the New

When decorating a home that already has plenty of character, it’s important to strike a balance between adding new elements and keeping old ones.

Gray Bedroom Ideas That Are Anything but Gloomy

Gray is often dismissed as a drab, dull, and unemotional color. However, this versatile color can blend with warm hues to create a laid-back space, play with pops of bright colors and patterns for a playful space, or take over a room for a cool, sophisticated look. When done right, gray can have a startlingly beautiful impact in your interior décor.

A blend of black and white, gray is by definition of neutral. Decorating with gray can be bright and beautiful, dark and dramatic, and warm or cool. If you don’t want white walls, but want to keep your space bright, pale gray is a great way to do so. Alternatively, if you want a fresh take on the architectural details found in a traditional home, a dark gray can make them really stand out.

Relax: Incorporating a Leather Recliner into Your Decor Is Easier Than You Think

Our lives get pretty busy and sometimes we forget to slow down and recharge. There just seems to be so much to get done. The dangers of neglecting yourself in this way can create more, not less, stress in your life, which can lead to stress-related health issues such as obesity, anxiety, high blood pressure, and heart problems. So take a deep breath and remember that sometimes it is okay to slow your roll and take it easy.

Recliners have a bad rep for being chunky, clunky, and hard to decorate around. Yet, they are sooo comfortable. Here are three ways to incorporate a recliner into your décor: Reimagine It, Scale It, or Forget It.

Spice Up Your Interior Décor with the Color Red

Red is the color of love, but if you love it too much, you may be seeing red all over your house. Red can be happy and cheery or angry and aggressive, and everywhere in between. That’s something you need to remember when using red in your room décor. But how do you know when too much red is too much, and when it is not enough?

You can use red as an accent color in everything from candles to lighting to walls and pillows. Accents of red can bring attention to other elements in a room that you might not otherwise notice. The idea is to intrigue, entice, and invite without hitting you over the head cave-man style and dragging you in.

Although red can make a room pop (I’m still lobbying for a red sofa in my home), too much red can be too much. When it comes to this passionate color of love, less is often just enough.

When deciding on what shade of red to use in your home, take into consideration your decorating style. Red is a color that needs to be used mindfully, and choosing the right shade is part of the process.
