    Velvet is definitely *the* texture of the moment. It may appear a little daunting at first but there are plenty of ways in which you can work this trend into your current home. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a velvet sofa, instead, why not add a pair of velvet cushions to your existing sofa to give it a little update? Or you could meet the trend halfway and opt for a velvet statement chair. Either way, it’s definitely a style worth incorporating into your interior!

          I just love these subway style tiles. Subway tiles adds a classic utilitarian feel to any area. They’re also very easy to do yourself! It’s a great little DIY project, so clear a couple of days to get your hands dirty. All you need it dark grey grout and a de-grouter and you can get started! I love the simple, clean aesthetic look and they can be the upgrade your bathroom or kitchen needs, plus it’s super cheap so why not give it a go? The style of this bathroom is just perfect with these white tiles. Did you know that subway tiles got their names from the ceramic tiles used in the early twentieth century on the New York City subway stations walls.

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

            We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

            On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

            Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

            1. Smart Door Locks

            A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

            2. Smart Kitchen Tools

            Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

            3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

            If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

            4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

            These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

            5. Nest Thermostat

            This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

            6. Smart Lighting

            Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

            7. Google Chromecast Ultra

            Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

            8. Canary

            This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
