Dorm Room Decor 101

Decorating your dorm room can be a challenge due to the restrictions placed by the university. Cinderblock walls and linoleum floors hold up well to multiple residents, but they create a cold, clinical environment. Use these tips and tricks to brighten your space.

Start from the Ground Up

Add warmth and color to your room with a brightly colored rug. You don’t have to splurge to cover your floor. Carpet tiles are an inexpensive option and can be changed out easily if one is damaged or if you want a different look. The creative types can crochet or braid and sew strips made from old t-shirts to make a rug.

Take Control with Facebook’s Newest Update

Take Control with Facebook’s Newest Update

Many people depend on their Facebook news feeds to keep tabs on everything from coupons to current events. It can be irritating for them when they miss important updates. Now Facebook has announced a solution for users who want more control over their news feeds. The See First feature helps you personalize your Facebook page for better results. 

Customized Connection

People use social media platforms to connect with groups as varied as friends, public figures and local businesses. However, for most people, not all of the stories and updates are relevant or meaningful. In the past, the only option for customizing your news feed was by the process of elimination. Users had the choice to unfollow groups whose information they didn’t want to see in their news feed. This all-or-nothing approach left much to be desired. For starters, it didn’t take into account one’s preferences for seeing certain people’s status updates before others’. Thanks to Facebook’s algorithm, this led to missed posts or seeing posts late. Now users have the option of telling Facebook exactly what they want from their social relationships.

How to Create a Welcoming Guest Room

How to Create a Welcoming Guest Room

Summer seems designed for friends and family, picnics and barbeques, swimming and fun. Summer is also a season full of frequent overnight guests. Create a welcoming atmosphere in your guest room with these luxury touches.

Clear the Clutter

Instead of shoving the clutter into closets and drawers, consider hiding unused items in plain sight. Decorative boxes can do double duty as both temporary storage and room accessories. Antique suitcases or a steamer trunk also provide handy storage space.

Make Their Belongings Accessible

Install hooks over closet doors and on the back of entryway doors for hanging clothes. A folding luggage stand or two will keep suitcases within easy reach without requiring your guests to stoop or move heavy baggage on and off the bed. A small tray or bowl on top of the nightstand makes a convenient repository for keys and jewelry.

How to Get a Home Loan with Less than Perfect Credit

How to Get a Home Loan with Less than Perfect Credit

A poor credit score can be a major obstacle to receiving approval for a home loan. Fortunately, for those with less than stellar credit, there are alternatives to traditional financing. Consider these options to soften the impact of a poor credit score when applying for a home loan.

Put More Money Down

A higher down payment can offset poor credit scores. Putting up to 20 percent down on the home shows lenders that you’re willing to make a serious commitment towards repaying the debt accrued by the purchase. Gathering the funds to do this isn’t an impossible task, but it does require discipline. Save money from windfalls like bonus pay or tax refunds, and consider making regular savings deposits towards the down payment before you go house hunting.

Decorating with Handmade Textiles

Handmade textiles are steeped in history. Traditionally made by women, they are a means of displaying artistry and skill. The pieces may also be the result of a collaborative effort between women of a particular family or village. They are a great way to bring a slice of community, tradition and history into any home.

Embroidery

Suzani

The name “suzani” comes from a Persian word that means “needle.” Flowers are stitched in intricate patterns resembling mandalas and then surrounded with vine and leaf motifs. Vibrant colors and bold patterns are used to create textiles that can be used as throws or wall hangings. Build the ambiance and color of your room with one of these Central Asian focal pieces, and the result will be a vibrant and lively room.
