Liven-up the Living Room

We spend more time in our living room. This is the room for relaxing and socializing. We enjoy moment with friends and family here. So, it is important to keep this room in chic design, right?

Living room is an area where we put furniture, hang photos, paint the wall in bright-lovely colour, and somehow, we can display our child’s trophy, badges, or unique merchandise inside.

Creating a stylish living room is not so tough. While organizing this area could be an enjoyable moment.

What to be set in living room?

Of course, furniture. Let’s reset them in different side. The arrangement of furnitures should be conducive to conversation. Set your chair and coffeee table in a right position, so that you can reach your tea, remote, or book easily.

Cover the coffee table with tablecloth if you want. Rug and cushions can make a different accent too. But it’s up to you. It’s your style anyway.

Have an old shelf?

That’s great. You can do a colour experimentation on it. Prepare a tape, brush, and paint. Make your creation. You can find an elegant painting in hundreds simple ways on Youtube, or try Pinterest. You have a sense of art? Then, decorate the shelf with your sketch. Paint it with the touch of you. I’m sure you will love arranging books in its new look shelf.    

Where to put photos?

Where do you usually placed them? Let’s reorganize your photos. Put them at your modified shelf. Despite filling it with books, your photo will add a new shade to your shelf. They create a space to endure the tightness of books in the shelf.

You can put photos at the console table too, or hang on the wall. Placed them about 150cm from the ground. Try to rearrange with other hanging artworks. Don’t over. Every room need a negatif space—in short, it is a free area—to balance the density of a room. To much hanging accessories becoming it a store lookalike. It would feel crowded and narrow too.

It is necessary or not to bring plants inside?

Yess! I suggest to add plants on living room. There are several plants with unique look. After all, plants can purify the air and absorbing humidity of the room. Bring them inside surely make your living room feel alive.

There are so many choices of easy care plants for you—and me—who don’t wanna be busy to treat plants. Some plants even are drought tolerant e.g. cactus, snake plants; some of them can be grown in water like herbs; some are only need low sun light, e.g. photos, ivy, and etc. Various plants are vary in treatment. Chose the one/ones that suit you.  

Then, now you’ve know what to start. Let’s make it fun.

Adding Green in Home


A room without plants can be bored sometimes. Besides purify the air, plants can enhance the beauty of room. Some plants can be placed indoor. That’s why bonsai, cactus, lavender and others indoor plants become a new trend in modern living. It is a hobby and a life style at one.

While putting plants on pots, have you ever tried to organize them on rack? Or put them in bigger vases? These products may become one of your properties. It creates an aesthetically pleasing environment for your space. Also, a perfect match for your indoor plants.

Refresh your Dining Table

New Year finally comes.

I am sure people—specially you—around the world have plenty resolutions to do. A new business strategy, new project, or maybe you think of breaking uncontrolled things, plan some other things and blablabla…. Left behind 2018.  

Firstly in the beginning of this month, I kept thinking how to break my old dining table. I wanna give it a new look in a simple way. Despite buying a new dining table, I decided to place some objects to refresh it.

And, these are my choices:


Teak bowl

Natural Teak Bowl

I give my first glance to those teak bowls. Put some fruits on it. Pick some flowers too, throw them in. Done!

So simple? I used to store fruit in fridge, flowers in a glass vase. So, I did a little exchange and it gives a different look on my dining table. Off course, I love the color combination of fruits-flowers and the natural polish teak bowl. It’s beautiful.

Candle holder

In tropical countries, flies fly around dining table. Candle can very useful to send them away, It’s also brings different atmosphere. Those candle holders save my dining table from melting wax and surely give a new feel.  

Which one is your choice?

Roots..put it out from the earth, teak root table

Tree Roots require three things to penetration

Tree Roots require three things : water, oxygen, and soil compaction levels low enough (or with void spaces sufficiently large enough) to allow root penetration. If all these conditions are met, roots can grow to great depths. Under ideal soil and moisture conditions, roots have been observed to grow to more than 20 feet (6 meters) deep.

Early studies of tree roots from the 1930s, often working in easy-to-dig loess soils, presented an image of trees with deep roots and root architecture that mimicked the structure of the top of the tree. The idea of a deeply-rooted tree became embedded as the typical root system for all trees. Later work on urban trees that were planted in more compacted soils more often found very shallow, horizontal root systems. Urban foresters have successfully spent a lot of energy trying to make people understand that tree roots have a basically horizontal orientation, to the point that even many tree professionals now believe that deep roots in trees are a myth. The truth lies somewhere in between deep roots and shallow roots.

This totally horizontal root system formed on top of poorly drained soils.

“Trees are genetically capable of growing deep roots, but root architecture is strongly influenced by soil and climate conditions.”

The most typical limitations to tree rooting in urban areas are soil compaction and poor drainage. These are often related, with a compaction layer creating a poorly-draining hard pan. This results in a perched water layer that restricts roots. Hard pans and perched water tables can also be found in nature. In fine-grained clay soils and fine-grained silty soils, pore space — and therefore and rooting depth — is often limited. Since these conditions are quite common in urban areas, shallow rooted trees are often seen as “typical.
