Creative Styling Ideas To Decorate Your Room

  • One wall is what it would take just choose

Is there any wall in your house which is empty has nothing on it and at times when you look at it, it seems lonely, take that loneliness away and buy a set of shelves, the one which can cover the entire wall from floor to the ceiling and from the ceiling to the floor and then you can stuff those shelves with all the books that you have, this setting would even look more amazing if it is in your drawing room. 

  • Color code

Whenever we go for a part these days we color coordinate with our partner or the part already has a theme, this is the usual trend why not use this same trend for your home library, you can arrange all your novels according to their color on your shelves, if you do not want a very big library then you can have multiple shelves and fix them on your wall and in between you can leave some space for some photo frames. This would make your library look bright, I know libraries always seem dull and boring but then for a book lover they always turn out to be bright and beautiful no matter what. 

  • Books and a comfortable seating equals to heaven for some

For some people, books are not just books they are their best friends and what’s better than cuddling with your closest ally? Nothing so in your beautiful library add a nice huge size chair and turn it into heaven, and you can even keep a blanket nearby what if you plan to spend the night with your best friend and it turns out to be a cold night. 

  • Let’s get creative 

Arrange your shelves in a different matter do not go for the square shape its way too outdated go for the diamond shape, it would bring pleasure to your eyes and to your heart 

  • A curtain- A hide and seek game

Some people do not like displaying their books so they can simply use a curtain, it would not only help in hiding your books but would also give a different look to your library 

  • Colored ladder

If your shelves start from the floor and go till the ceiling then practically you require a ladder but then it would not only help you in taking a book out but would also give a nice and beautiful look to your library 


  • Ceilings

If by any chance you have a two stories high area (it can be your living room), then you can simply utilize that space by making your library sky high, now if you are going for this option then you would simply require a nice strong ladder, go for a one which is colored and goes with your living room. 

  • A nook for reading

Nooks are very common these days but you can make yours look unique by designing your own space, get a little creative and create your dream library 

Favourite Peddles

You would require three days to make your very own pebble mosaic, how? you would require one day of searching pebbles and sort out the pebbles that you like, laying the base, setting the pebbles would require a day too and the third day would be dedicated to grouting. 

The very first thing that you require to do is pick the stones that you like, take a bucket and fill it with the stone you like then take that bucket to the area where you plan to make your own mosaic, once you reach, spread your favorite peddles out and then wash them, they need to be properly cleaned, after it takes out another bucket, now start sorting the stones, in three buckets divide the stones on the bases of there size and color.

Now in a sandbox spread sand (make sure that the depth is of at least three inches), it’s time to be a little creative, this is the time where you decide how your mosaic would look like the shape, the pattern, everything here you are the creator, get ready, think and then start laying the pebbles upright in your sandbox and do not worry the sand would help you in keeping the stones in there place while you’re working.Make sure that your pebbles are packed tightly, together. make sure that the pebbles in the middle are touching each other and are parallel to each other. 

  1. Make sure that your setting is slightly above the usual ground if it is not then the water would get collected on the top of your mosaic.
  2. You need to dampen your concrete mix and for it, you can use a hose and make sure that the texture changes to a crumbly texture
  3. Time to mark the shape of your mosaic, for making it you can

use some nails, tie some nails together (for instance like a compass) and then make your perfect circles 

  1. Place a pebble in the center and then two pebbles along its sides, before placing the stones at their respected spots you need to dig some holes after digging place them at their spots and then use your fingers to pack the mix.
  2. Now its time you finally fill in your mosaic’s pattern, while your placing the pebbles at their stops according to the pattern that you have chosen for your mosaic, make sure that the joints are tight, in the middle the stones must be touching each other
  3. After setting the pebbles according to your pattern start spreading the topping mixture on the top, use a brush to spread the mix in between the joints
  4. By now you are almost done with your mosaic now all you need to do is saturate your mosaic and for it, you need to mist your mosaic lightly after it, leave it for about thirty minutes so that it can cure itself.
  5. This is the last step now all you need to do is secure your mosaic, take a plastic trap and spread it over your mosaic, basically I mean cover your mosaic with it.

  • Now you would be wondering how to roll it, it is simple but requires a little bit of attention, we need to fold the sheet into a triangle after folding fill it with the stuffing we just prepared, use the paste made up of all-purpose flour to seal your triangle after sealing it we need to fry it for deep frying we require a skillet which has a thick bottom, we need to fill the skillet with vegetable oil, and then we need to allow it to reach an optimal level and then we can begin frying.
