Focus on the Floor

Put Memories on Display.

Displaying gallery on your wall isn’t just trendy but a perfect way to flaunt your artwork and favourite family photos. Select frames in the same colour for an adhesive look or really stir it up with frames with a different kind of colours, shapes and sizes.

Give New Life to Old Stuff

A Fresh coat of paint will always give a new look to the items you already have, or reorganize the furniture in your living room to make an interesting arrangement. It’s always nice to try something dissimilar, move your coach to the other end of the wall or move the end of the table to the other edge of the chair.

Levels Of Lighting
