    Bedroom Wall Decorations: 19 Decorations For Bedroom

    With every new year comes the desire to start from scratch: to clear out our interiors, donate several bags of clothes to charity and to wipe the slate clean. But sometimes, that’s easier said than done; we can’t all afford to buy a new sofa, coffee table and bed frame every time we fancy switching up our furniture. That said, we can do little things like buy a new bedroom rug or bedroom chair and even purchase some new bedroom wall decorations. Decorating your abode is essential to making it feel like it’s yours, and it feels especially important in the boudoir. No one wants to wake up to a…

Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Canvaspop, the survey also found that people spend an average of $213 annually on new holiday decor. Most deck…

    Festive NYC restaurants to enjoy the best Christmas decorations

    Dining out during the holidays isn’t the sugar-plummy sleigh ride it used to be. Not only  because of the pandemic, but because so many of the city’s beloved venues for year-end celebration are gone. The Plaza Oak Room,  Bull & Bear and the ‘21’ Club are among the many we’ve lost.  But the surviving choices are precious. Most of our picks evoke Yuletide nostalgia: They’re older and all-on cozy with lots of holly and poinsettias, plus warm lighting to hold back the crush of  the year’s earliest sunsets. Such venues can be touristy, but they’re also a lot more atmospheric than newly minted dining spaces, however elegant they might be. Note: The…
