Indoor / Outdoor Area Rugs


Add ambiance to your outdoor living space with an area rug that is made to withstand the weather. Most outdoor rugs are made from nylon and polyester which makes the outdoor rug stronger and good for high-moisture areas including covered patio, porch, laundry room and bathroom.

Recently I was shopping for a rug for one of my clients and found that there are a variety of patterns, sizes, and shapes to choose which will allow you to choose the indoor/outdoor rug that will appeal to your needs. 

Are you feeling inspired to decorate your outdoors space?  Here is a patio design set that will show you how to decorate a covered porch with patio furniture and an outdoor rug.   The rug brings the seating area together and this space is eye appealing.  Do you agree?

When you accessorize your patio with an outdoor rug you will be able to cover up a section of your patio or deck that is worn paint peeling or cement crack. Nobody will view the imperfections when the rug is concealing them.

Another benefit would be that an outdoor rug makes your patio and sitting area more cozy and welcoming.

Even though the rugs are made to be mold resistant it is best that your outdoor living space has a covering because a rug left out on a patio without a covering will become worn out quickly. After a hard rain, the rug may develop mold or have a mildew smell.

Insulated Energy Efficient Drapes / Curtains

Keep your living areas warmer in winter and cooler in summer with insulated drapes and curtains. Microfiber backed window treatments have three functions, energy savings, they block UV rays and the curtains blackout the light so you can sleep during the day.
My husband and I work nights so when we are heading for bed the sunlight is bright in our bedroom. When the insulated drapes are closed the room is darkened and we can sleep, plus these drapes keep the room quieter because they block the outdoor noise.

If you are interested in insulated energy efficient drapes for your bedroom or other room in your home, then here are some fine online shops that offer a variety of patterns, colors at fair prices.

Pink Patterned Legging Outfit - Fashion Looks

Pink is the universal color that women are attracted to and this color is always in fashion for spring and summer fashion. There are a variety of pink colors from bright fuchsias to pastels making the color pink complimentary to many skin and hair colors.

My hair color is red and I have fair skin, the fuchsia color or the bright pink color is not good for me but pastel pinks are fabulous.  what I like about pink is that it looks good with a variety of colors.  Wear pink with gray, black, white or with blue jeans. 

Shop for prints or solids, the choice is yours. Here are a few of my favorite pink fashion looks for spring and summer. The t-shirt, pattern leggings and coordinating pink accessories are my designs that I created at zazzle.com. You can buy as shown or customize to make your own from uploading your own pink photograph of watercolor, painting or other.

About this outfit:

The T-shirt is fine cotton with 10 % polyester jersey that is soft and lightweight. A classic style for everyday wear to work or for casual outfits. The leggings are stretchy eco polyester spandex blend (88% polyester, 12% spandex) and are hand sewn. This legging was designed from a photograph of clouds then I added a filter edit.

The leggings are made from a heavier fabric that is breathable and stretches to fit your body perfectly. The legging hugs your body in all the right places, making you look thinner but does not constrict and does not feel uncomfortable. Normally leggings that fit like like this will stretch out in the wash, not the case with this legging because they do not lose their shape after you wear or wash them. You will love the way this legging feels and will want them in every color.

Here is a pink legging outfit that I created.  It shows you how to put together a fashion look using a variety of pink patterns.

Cute Bella Raglan Sleeve Shirt Customer Review

The  Women's Bella Canvas white shirt with red raglan sleeves and red ladybug design is super cute for summer outfits. You can wear with jeans a denim skirt. This shirt looks comfortable and super cute but does run small.

I bought the shirt to mix and match with several outfits in my wardrobe. The product about did say that the shirt ran small and that you should size up so instead of buying the medium I bought the large. The shirt arrived and it was super cute, looked better than on the website but the size large was a form fitted medium and I really did not want a shirt to hug my curves. 

I prefer a shirt that is not as tight, one that is comfortable to wear while I work in the garden or other summer activities. On a hot day, the last thing that I want is a cotton shirt that feels tight.

In as much as I love the style of this Bella shirt, I did not want to size up to an extra large. I feel the cut of this shirt is not right for what I need and have decided to return to Zazzle.com and buy another style. I saw that this ladybug design is available in several other styles and I found a short-sleeved tee that I like. 

The shirt that I bought says that it is preshrunk and that it ran true to size.  I decided to size up and bought the large. 

The fit on this shirt is better. Not boxy, but not as slim as a fit as the raglan sleeve baseball jersey style shirt.  Know that if you buy a shirt at Zazzle and it is too small or too large, you usually can find another style shirt with the same design.
