Personally, I am not a fan of the Recliner chairs unless I’m in a movie theater. But, when I saw the recliners, I just couldn’t believe how beautiful and elegant it looked! It doesn’t look like your normal recliner. It is something I can really imagine having in my own house.

Some of you may not know but i personally pick the products inside House of Ital. Each piece of item is carefully handpicked by me. I choose the colors and style and how i choose is a process of checking trends, market research, and most importantly what my gut says. I always ask the question “Will i buy this piece for my own house?”, if the answer is yes then it becomes a part of House of Ital store. I’ll be honest not all my choices hit the home run; some of them really did end up in my own house. Lol!

Enough about that! Let’s go back to this new product line i released this month.  It’s a series of sofas and lounge chair that reclines to almost full flat! Its material is genuine leather made from India and it even has a certificate to prove its origin. When we display these new babies in you can just smell the genuine leather smell! Another is that it’s so easy to clean since it store is real leather, and you don’t need to be scared of the leather cracking under extreme hot weather.

The mechanism of this recliner is made in the USA from the company Leggett & Platt; this gives the recliner a soft movement just like the first class seats in the plane! The mechanism is tested 20,000 times before shipping it out of the factory in Vietnam. Another thing, we cannot mention is how good the price of these sofas are! We really wanted it to be affordable for everyone but still maintain its class and quality = AFFORDABLE LUXURY! Last but not the least; i just love the contrast stitching on these sofas!! I actually handpicked the material, color and stitching of this collection, hope you guys will love it as much as i do!

Achieve Your Dream Home Without Breaking the Bank

Do you want to style your home, but you’re working with a tight budget? We’ve got your covered with tips from our very own

Jam Chan Cua.

Trust me, we’ve all been there! Whether it's shopping for clothes, shoes or bags it's all the same you always want everything that looks nice even if you JUST bought a similar piece. UGHH it's’ so hard to not look!! I think I’ve already accepted the fact with my shopping capabilities I should really stay away from department stores lol. And then I get married to the most amazing man I might add but then a whole new world opens up, “HOME SHOPPING” I had no choice but to go back to department stores because we’re moving in to our new home. Entering the store, I immediately had that gut-wrenching feeling when you know you want everything and the most stylish pieces for your home, but you have to stick to a budget. It can be annoying at times, but I learned to take a step back and really work on my dream home without having to break the bank. Think of this as your very own pre-home decor therapy. I’ll take you through some tips I used to kickstart my dream home. Hope it helps!

Prioritize

What are your real non-negotiables?

© 2005-2015 Professional Translations

Are you a living room lover or a kitchen diva? Do you love entertaining at home or love keeping your space private? Knowing which areas of your home are the most important to your lifestyle is the first step to figuring out your priorities when decorating your home. What’s that one thing you just can’t live without? As for me, since I love inviting friends over, having that perfect dining table is a must. I enjoy putting together small gatherings which is why I made sure to budget towards that direction.

If you love coming home to a bedroom that will give you your best sleep ever every single night, then allocate your budget around the bedroom. Believe me when I say that knowing your non-negotiables will remove half the clutter in your head about which is which. Take out that notepad, list your non-negotiables, and budget away!

Assess Your Current Inventory

Save space and money when you declutter

Before moving in to my new house, I did a quick scan of everything from my old home and assessed everything I can bring with me. Decluttering is not just about throwing away a lot of stuff to make space, it’s also a way for you to keep what’s important and valuable even if you move from one place to another. The best part about my visit to our old home was when my mom gave me some of her vintage vase and figurines they definitely added charm and character to my new house.

 

Do you have old home decors you can play around with? How about putting up mixture of old picture frames together up on a wall? It would definitely make a hallway more interesting and it doesn’t even have to match each other. Another tip is when you make that inventory assessment, try to evaluate if certain pieces can go together. By doing this, you can minimize the need to purchase more unnecessary accents and allocate more budget to those furniture pieces that matter to you and your lifestyle.

Find Furniture that Double in Function

Here’s a space saving tip for the budget-conscious! The best way to save up on your budget is to purchase furniture that can serve multiple purposes at home. Take for example a coffee table with compartments below, which can house your books, magazines, and accents on top, and store living room essentials inside like rugs, pillows and lots more. You can even make a bedside table out of stacks of wicker storage baskets. Not only do you get extra space for your bedroom linens, you also get a stand for your lamp! Having a sofa bed is also one of the best examples for multipurpose furniture. Style it with pillows and drape cloths in the morning, and set it up as a makeshift bed for when your friends decide to crash in for the night.

 

Think outside the box and be candid about it. You’ll be surprised to find several ways to save up, maximize your budget, and have fun in the process!

5 ways to add Bohemian vibe to your home space

By: Jam C. Cua | February 9, 2018

Bohemian style is one of the hot design inspiration used today by designers. It embodies a person who is well traveled and a throwback to the hippie era, with the end result of a warm, inviting and very casual “chill” vibe. Its like your space is saying “messy hair and I don’t care” or “I woke up like this” that’s the type of person a bohemian space represents.

Don’t be afraid to play with colors

Bohemian style loves the mix and splash of colors and that is why this style is so fun to use in redecorating a space. You can instantly reuse vintage items such as rugs and pillow cases because bohemian style doesn’t really follow any certain color. Throw in a dozen of pillows to immediately give a living room a boho feel.

Add low level seating

Whether its pillows on the floor, a pouf as your side table or even a low bench gives your space a “come sit with me” vibe which can make a home have long conversations and laughter that will last throughout the whole night. Low level seating gets more people seated and more comfortable that they feel right at home.

Bring the outdoors into your space

Greenery was a big theme for the year 2017. The green color of the plants represents a wild, unpredictable and vibrant feel. Bohemian design blurs the line between inside and outside as much as possible. Don’t just use conventional flower vases think bigger like putting a 4 feet or even bigger plants on the corner of the room. If your space is too small, you can opt to use a clear glass vessel and put small plants or terrariums inside. If you use real plants, it can actually help clean your air as well, double purpose.

Put on a bright wall 

In our case, we used this blue and gold wallpaper which exudes vibrancy and life at the same time it soothes our senses. It enhances all those yellow and pink colors without making the room too confusing. You can also just paint your wall in the color turquoise if red and pink are more your accent colors or if its just too much work to put a wallpaper. Because using a wallpaper you have to make sure your walls are smooth and ready for wallpaper application.

Keep the look unfinished or rugged 

The bohemian vibe concerns itself more with having a good time rather than a polished or formal look. Having the right amount of ruggedness transforms the room into a comfortable resting spot leaving behind any stiffness and inviting guests to relax and feel at home.
