We recently came across this article by Fox News, 6 Ways to Spice Up Your Empty Nest, and found #5 to be quite appealing —

RE-DECORATE THE HOUSE!!!

Sure, sitting in your absent child’s bedroom can be somewhat therapeutic. But we think that turning those rooms into spaces you can personally enjoy is a much better way to set the tone to your next life chapter! It’s the time to start to make your house your OWN!

What you turn the space into…well, thats totally up to you!!

Now that we all know what Ombre’ is, how many of you actually know when it started?!  This time last year we started to see the “new” trend creeping in our favorite celebs hair styles. However, I bet most of you didn’t know that this style originally started in Hollywood salons in the 1970’s and has been slowly growing in popularity over the years. It wasn’t until last year that the Ombre’ trend ignited and spread like wild fire through the hair world! online payday loans

 Here at A.Clore Interiors we tend to pay little attention to trends because you never know how long they will remain “trendy”. However, we really started to take notice when the Ombre’ style spread into the fashion world last summer.
