Walking burns 210 calories per hour, standing burns 88, while sitting not more than 80 calories per hour. And considering the fact that going for a walk is not an option when you are stuck in the office and have tons of things to take care of, you need a better solution. Here's an idea - have you ever considered standing up and working that way? What am I talking about? Well, adjustable standing desks.

Summer might be approaching its end, but we here in Australia are lucky to get to enjoy mild autumns that allow us to steal some wonderful moments of sunshine every now and then. So, instead of staying inside your home, why not make the most...

Small living rooms come with many design challenges since striking the perfect balance between comfort and function can be a tricky business when you're working with a limited amount of space. From the colour you choose for your walls to the size and style of the furniture, every little detail can have a major influence on the final look of a small living room. That's why careful planning of both the room's layout and design is essential for creating a functional living space that looks stylish, homey and inviting.

Setting the right stage for your sleeping nook is essential. A well-designed bedroom can be more calming, cosy, romantic and restful. To promote relaxation where you need it most, you need to zero in on which décor style you personally favour. Lately, for a relaxing...

Have you noticed a trend in interior design lately? Clean lines, soothing colours and broad, uncluttered spaces all adorn the pages of the latest editions of popular interior design magazines. And if you were to actually read the editorials, you are sure to come across a lot of Scandinavian this and Scandinavian that. The reason why this style is so popular not only in magazines, but in homes throughout Australia, is that it's very liveable - made up from low key furnishings that are comfortable as much as purposeful. If the only reference you have about Scandinavian design is Ikea, this guide is here to give you the proper picture of what it's all about.
Light blue walls, sophisticated crisp linens, a distinct palette of neutrals, whites and blues, woven details and sandy feet up on a slipcovered sofa – all call to mind the amazing feel of coastal style and the stunning airiness of a beach house. No matter where you call home, whether your view is cityscape, landscape or, if you're lucky enough, seaside - you can design your home in a breezy and bright style – one that will make you feel like you have the ocean on your doorstep. Introducing: the basic elements of the contemporary coastal style.
Some may say that it's too expensive and too impractical to follow interior design trends with all the furniture pieces and decorative elements you need to change quite often in order to be trendy. After all, this isn't clothes we're talking about (and we all looove buying a new piece of clothes every now and then), so I can agree with the notion that it's somehow, expensive. But think of it this way: if you can't afford to change your furniture every year or so, then you most certainly can be creative and add a dose of trendiness here and there to refresh the appearance of your rooms and keep up with current trends. Just like in clothing, accessories are the key. However, if you don't have the proper base for your taste (likes and admirations in interior design), you won't be able to pull this off. Again, just like when you look to dress up trendy and fashionable, but still be you. So, lets tackle the process of becoming a trendy interior design guru who knows how to get the most of a room with few simple tricks. In the focus in this post: your living room.
As you might have heard, the only constant in this world is change. As we can see, things have considerably changed since the days of ancient civilisations in terms of clothing and furnishing. In the past furniture did not have the same role as it has nowadays, which is especially notable with the dining table. The high classes of society spread about an eating trend that omitted tables and put more focus on lounge chairs, making eating as relaxed activity as possible by lying down and not involving much movement but rather giving all the accent to the experiencing of different tastes.
The sideboard is that piece of furniture we rely on when we need something decorative to fill in an awkwardly empty space in our living or dining rooms, and when we need some extra space for storage but we don't want it to be too obvious. Yes, we women can be pretty demanding when it comes to choosing furniture elements for interior decoration purposes, but then again, if we weren't, our rooms and homes would look like a mess without any direction of style, colour and material. In this post I'll concentrate on one very appealing style of sideboards coming from the far East: the Chinese sideboard. It's mainly suitable for vintage homes, for rooms designed with more traditional and kind of old elements, but with a certain modern charm. Choosing a Chinese sideboard is a rather easy task if you take into consideration a few important factors.
