Bedside lighting can be fun as well as functional, as seen in this eclectic bedroom with a beautiful global vibe. A quirky little desk lamp brings task lighting to the bedside for working or reading in bed. I love the contrast between the light-hearted lamp design and the more formal look of silk draperies and velvet headboard.

A Little Kitchen Update

Progress around my home is slow moving lately. And trying to blog about it when I finally finish a project is even slower. A couple weeks ago my husband and I took on the task of changing up our kitchen nook.

Kitchen nook = The awkward space behind our counter that is too small for anything useful.

Enter metal crates and spray paint.

Lucky for us, my husband's family farm had lots of these old metal crates lying around. We used over 30! We pressure washed off all the old grime and grease and prepped them to be painted. 10 spray cans of paint and 2 very sore fingers later, we had shiny stackable crates.

I've always wanted open storage in the kitchen and now I have it!

The best thing about this whole project is the crates are interchangeable and nothing is attached to the wall.  Meaning I can change it around or completely take the whole thing down if I get sick of it.

The Psychology of Interior Design

What does interior design mean to you? Once upon a time, home design was a mystical, highly-skilled job that was typically performed by top design experts. Today, however, more and more of us are taking up interior design as a hobby in its own right. Fans of home design not only create beautiful interiors in their own homes; they are taking their design skills to transform the interior of their friends' houses, too. But what does that say about us as people? What is it that drives people to the creative?

The answer is very close at hand - in fact, it's right inside our own heads. In a world where self-expression is often hard - and often frowned upon - home design offers an incredibly satisfying outlet. Combining colours and textures to design or re-design a tired-looking interior offers a sense of real achievement; a release from everyday life. It's often the quietest, most reserved people who fall in love with home design. For them, interior design is a perfect sounding board: a way of projecting their innermost feelings into a space that's crying out for design. Ask these people how they're feeling, and they will probably have difficulty expressing their interior feelings. But show them a bare room... and watch their design skills take flight as they express their joy, rage, sadness and hope through beautiful design and stunning interior creativity.

Interior design doesn't have to be a physical hobby, of course. Television today is packed with programmes about design. Famous experts such as Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen have become household names - and what better way to while away an evening than settling down to watch your favourite design programme? Seeing a home design expert transform a house that was once a shell offers a real escape from everyday life - not to mention giving you ideas and inspiration to re-think your own interior. Viewing a home design programme also offers an intriguing insight into the minds of the design experts themselves. Llewellyn-Bowen, for example, is obviously a home design guru, and he's also a very dramatic, flamboyant gentleman. But look carefully at his idea, and you'll see another side to him. His design shows a real insight into his clients' psyche: Llewellyn-Bowen's design is a perfect outward reflection of peoples' interior characters.

How the Right Nutrients Contribute to a General State of Well-Being

When it comes to being and staying healthy, a good workout program and a healthy diet are the primary movers and shakers, without which you will never be able to achieve that state of optimum health you are aiming for. In this article, we are mainly going to focus on Australian sports nutrition and how it can contribute to a healthier you.

When people start to seriously look into their health, it is almost always the physical aspect that they look into first. Especially if one has been living a sedentary lifestyle behind a desk for most of the day, the first change they would opt for is increasing their physical activity such as taking up running or swimming or going to the gym to work out. What is not always so obvious is the fact that diet plays just as important a role in physical fitness. It is virtually impossible to keep working out and get the results you need unless you also start making changes to your diet. In this article, we will focus on sports nutrition and the role it plays in helping you become healthier.

There are many specific benefits you can get from proper nutrition that will definitely contribute to your general state of well-being. Even in your most sedentary state, it is very important that you are eating healthily and taking the right kind of nutrients. More often than not, we are not actively doing our part to know what goes into our food. The ideal solution is to start preparing your own food so that you know what you are taking in. However, this involves a drastic change of lifestyle that not everyone is ready to undertake. If you are mostly dining out or having takeaways instead of cooking your own food, you may want to supplement your balanced diet with essential vitamins and minerals, just to cover your bases.

In gym workout regimens, a fitness program being advocated by your personal trainer almost always incorporates a diet regimen that specifically targets certain goals. In most lean muscle-building workouts, the intake of the right kind of nutrients is encouraged, as this will help you sustain through the more rigorous activities you are doing. For those who need to lose weight at the same time, they may also need to focus on limiting fats as well. Although most nutritionists prefer a change in diet as the optimal option, others find that taking supplements in the form of pills or shakes may be the more feasible one.

Another aspect that right nutrition can specifically address is the need for your body to repair and recover from your chosen physical activity. For sure, you will have consumed a lot of energy, and the muscles you are working on become stressed to the point of damage. One of the advocacies of sports nutrition is the incorporation of more protein in the diet. The amount of protein recommended for intense activities is so high that the nutrients you get from your regular meals might not be sufficient. For you to receive the same amount and quality of proteins in shake form, you will have to overload with huge meat portions. For most people, this is virtually impossible because the stomach can only handle so much food at once. For the purpose of convenience and instant absorption, drinking a protein shake or eating a protein bar with all the proteins you need may be the better option.

So, whether you live a sedentary life or a very intensely active one, the right nutrition is always a given. Even if your physical goals are not achieved, when you are taking in the right nutrients, you will feel so much better in your own body, which is all that really matters in the end.
