How to Add Mixed Patterns to Your Apartment’s Decor

September 23, 2015 4:40 pm

Think it takes a decorator’s eye to mix patterns? Think again! With a few smart tips and some simple rules to keep in mind, you can mix patterns like the pros in any room in your home.

  1. Choose a color scheme. First, pick a color scheme that you’ll stick with throughout the room. Whether it’s basic black and white or something brighter, like yellow and blue, this will make your pattern mixing much easier.
  2. Limit the number of patterns. While it may seem overwhelming to mix a dozen different patterns, even the most novice home decorator can work with three or four. Keep things simple, but still incredibly impactful.
  3. Decide where you’ll mix your patterns. Adding a variety of different throw pillows on the sofa or the bed is one of the most popular ways to incorporate a few different patterns in a room, but you might also want to add even more fun prints. For even more depth and dimension, try a temporary wallpaper in a big, bold pattern, or use a funky rug with simpler throw pillows and curtains.
  4. Make your own. If you’re having a hard time finding pillowcases or curtains in patterns that go together, try creating your own! It’s very easy to sew these items at home, and some tutorials don’t even involve any sewing at all.

Don’t Miss the Fried Chicken and Waffles at The Kitchen

September 16, 2015 8:12 pm

When owner Stephen Henderson originally opened The Kitchen, the restaurant only had 20 seats. The demand for the eatery's excellent food quickly outgrew their ability to serve customers, and after just two years in business, The Kitchen moved to a new space, with fantastic results.

When you walk in, you’ll be dazzled by the stylish decor, which includes a bronzed tin ceiling, crystal chandeliers, and a leaf-patterned wallpaper that’s stunning. But all this plays second fiddle to the food, which regulars report is out of this world. After you place your order, the chef will send out an amuse-bouche to tantalize your palate. Some of the prime dishes that diners rave about include the dark, flavorful lobster bisque and the grilled veal rib chop with a Gruyere popover. The place’s signature dish, the fried chicken and waffles with buttermilk gravy, is sure to inspire repeat visits to this Englewood eatery.
