Furnish your Home in the Style of the Stars


Recent Company News

Reality television programs are taking us into a wider variety of celebrities homes each day, allowing us all the opportunity to see how the stars like to live. When watching such a program, one inevitably is influenced by the furniture and the décor which is present in their homes, and envy may strike once the realization strikes of just how much some of the items cost. But envy need strike no more, as there are inexpensive ways to emulate the trends of the stars, and perfectly reasonable prices for furniture of the same or similar quality or extravagance, whatever your taste may be. Ben Weissman gives some helpful hints...

Use Bedroom Furniture To Live Like A Celebrity
By: Ben Weissman

No one ever said there was anything wrong with pampering yourself through the use of particular decorations in our bedroom.  In fact, furniture and decor in your personal bedroom can easily imitate the luxuries found in the homes of celebrities.  Inside your own personal space, you can feel free to use whatever decor you like, so why not create a celebrity style nook?  Here are some accessories and furnishings that can make your room equivalent to many of those found in Hollywood.

If you watch television shows that take you through celebrity homes, you'll find that many famous women have day beds and canopy beds.  Even on a limited budget and with limited space you can create a celebrity-style bedroom that resembles this.  If you have a small room to work with, opt for a canopy twin bed, saving space while still pimping out the room.  If you can't afford a true canopy bed, create one of your own, all it takes is some wooden dowels to create the posts and the crossbars on top, then some inexpensive gauze-like or lace material from the nearest fabric store.

Another option, especially if you live in a studio apartment where the bedroom and living area are one and the same, is to get a day bed.  These can be expensive or not, and Fashion Bed Group is one company that offers quite a few very glamorou daybeds at a very good price. Daybeds are an inexpensive way to furnish your home with a bed and a couch at one time, as well as to live the high life.  A day bed is easily decorated and upgraded to give the look of the lap of luxury.  Add a monstrous pile of throw pillows, and use wardrobe screens to decorate the room with an Asian theme.  Add your own shrine to yourself behind the daybed headboard, building a shelf full of candles and incense that can make the area more romantic when needed.

Even your child's room can be turned into a celebrity imitation with affordable kids' beds.  You can start with a plain, basic piece of wood and carve out a headboard in any shape, then paint it gold or silver to shine over your child's head.  Use splashes of bright color to create the room of a rock star or soft pastels and fluffy pillows to imitate your daughter's favorite pop singer's room.

Everything else in life is influenced by Hollywood, from clothing and hairstyles to the music we listen to and the cars we drive.  Home Decor is just the next big thing on the list of things for which ideas will be stolen from celebrities.  Take the ideas and run with them, getting creative and making it more personal.  While you should feel like a celebrity in your own home, it should still be home, so adjust any design elements that don't make you comfortable.  Most of all, don't spend outrageous sums of money doing so, and stick to a budget.  You can create your own celebrity haven without breaking the bank.
