How to Decorate Your Home With Tapestries

July 29, 2015 4:02 pm

While tapestries may remind you of your college dorm room, newer versions of these eclectic wall hangings are anything but frumpy. Updated tapestries are chic and modern, and they can be used throughout your home in a number of different ways. Here are just a few great ways to temporarily change up your wall color by using large tapestries.

  • Use a tapestry as a focal point. The first thing you should remember when decorating with a tapestry is that it will instantly become the focal point of the room. That means that should anchor it behind the headboard of your bed, as the backdrop of your sofa or on a bare wall in the hallway so that it doesn’t overpower the room.
  • Choose a complementary color scheme. No matter how wild and crazy your tapestry, you want to make sure that the colors used throughout pair well with the rest of your room.
  • Drape it over furniture. If you don’t want to hang it on the wall, you can drape your tapestry over an old armchair or small futon to breathe new life into its tired upholstery.
  • Hang it from the ceiling. For an even more unique effect, secure your tapestry to the ceiling and leave the rest of the walls blank.

American Fare Goes Gourmet at Taste on Melrose

July 22, 2015 4:35 pm

Taste on Melrose is an exceptional eatery with three locations in the Los Angeles area, all of which are known for high-quality new American cuisine with a gourmet twist. The menu here is heavy on comfort food favorites executed with fresh, seasonal ingredients.

Start your meal with the incredible white truffle oil and mushroom macaroni and cheese, which is a decadent delight. If you’re feeling a little more health-conscious, the Thai chicken cups with crispy rice are exceptional. The salads are fresh and delicious; try the shaved Brussels sprouts with pancetta or the red and yellow beets with arugula and herbed goat cheese. For entrees, regulars rave about the crispy parmesan chicken paillard with roasted garlic potato puree and the grilled cheese sandwich with short ribs. Taste on Melrose also offers a number of gluten-free choices. Prices are fair, and the service is uniformly excellent.
