Monarch Specialties 2015 Contemporary Coat Rack in Silver Metal
The holiday season is right around the corner with Thanksgiving rearing its beautiful head on Thursday. For many of us this means the start of many wonderful get togethers with dear friends and family. I thought it would be both useful and fun to post some tips on getting your home ready for your company.
Make the entrance of your home inviting by having a large area rug so your guests can feel free to slip off their shoes and leave them by the front door, especially if they are coming in from the rain. Some great, functional and inexpensive area rugs include Barhara Reversible Rug and the Zell Purple Rug, both from Uttermost
Another important and inviting tip is to make sure that you have enough hanging space for extra coats and outdoor accessories. If you do not have a big entrance unit to store a lot of extra stuff, consider investing in a simple portable coat rack that can be easily stored away when not in use. We offer some inexpensive coat racks in both a traditional wood style, like the Super Deluxe 75 Inch Hall Tree & Umbrella Rack from Homelegance, as well as more contemporary silver metal varieties, such as Monarch Specialties 2015 Contemporary Coat Rack in Silver Metal.

Greenington Lilac Screen in Classic Bamboo
One of the drawbacks of an open space plan is that there is no sense of division for big areas. Take for example a wide open living room that also plays host to the work-from-home-mom’s office or library. Without a doubt in such cases it would be very hard for someone to type away at a fast approaching deadline with the children watching television or playing a board game in the same room. However, it might be just as hard to do so even if the kids are not even there. In these scenarios, room dividers and privacy screens are an excellent solution—in fact, they actually create more space.
By getting a divider to zone off a certain part of a big spacious open plan, you not only maximize space efficiently, but, you also create a sense of division. Sitting on the couch and enjoying a drink and watching a movie while sitting behind a privacy screen can actually transform you into a different zone. Take the Classic Bamboo Lilac Screen from Greenington. Available here at BEYOND Stores, this contemporary privacy screen offers just the right amount of division, while embracing the entire space. It allows light to pass through its wooden slats, and it is available in five different colors.
