7 Ideas For A Tech-Free Family Room

Tech-free family rooms and dens are essential for every home. If you have the extra space, designate an area in your home to be a no-electronics zone. You can use charming signage to send the message that this room is for spending quality time with family and friends. While I love my smart phone as much as anyone else, there’s nothing more aggravating than seeing a group of people who don’t interact. Fill the room with fun activities that require thought and conversation, like puzzles and board games. This room is not meant to be a prison, but rather a relaxing environment in which all are free from our electronic leashes. Try some of these ideas for making one room in your house, a no tech zone!

Seaside Styles for a Nautical Patio

Nautical Seaside Home DecorNautical Styles for Your Patio

If you dream of seaside life, love the beach, or just have a thing for sailboats, this decor style is perfect for your patio.  Decor themes should reflect your personality and the things you enjoy. When you enter a room, the decor should make you happy, and when it’s a patio, it should have a relaxing mood. When nautical is the perfect, and only, choice for you, start with small accents, like candle holders and a decorative sand bowl. Then work your way up to hanging floats, wall clocks, table top decor, lamps, and more. I’ve highlighted some of our favorite nautical items below to help inspire the decorator inside. Browse through the categories and photos below to get started!

Float Accents

Fishing floats with jute accents are ready to hang or work great as a filler accent in sand-filled bowls. Pictured below: teal, olive green, and brown!
