wedding dresses articles

Ostentation is out, minimalism is in.
That's a credo that applies to many things these days, including one of the least likely suspects:
The wedding dress with lace.
Pouf is passe. Slim is stylish, and so are soft lace, flowing fabrics and focused embellishment.
The everywhere, over-the-top beading and embroidery of recent years? That's gone, for the most part, in favor of simple adornments on a shoulder, sleeve or waistline.
The look these days is more classic.
"Simplicity and ease are very popular -- dresses that look easy to wear and not stiff and formal," says Millie Martini Bratten, editor in chief of Brides magazine.
A micro-trend within this overall minimalist theme is the short wedding dress. As more brides get married at courthouses or host their receptions at bars rather than traditional banquet halls, they're dressing to match these emerging, downscaled wedding locales.
In many ways, bridal fashion follows regular fashion in that it tracks with economic and cultural trends.
When times are good, as they were in the mid-'80s and late '90s, the dresses are sparkly, big and princessy.
When good times turn bad, as they did after the stock market crashes in 1987 and last year, the mood turns introspective, and with it the profiles of even the most celebratory attire.
Weddings are still going strong, but overall spending is down, including the dollar figure spent on a dress. Satin wedding dresses also become famous.

Open Floor Plan

Make your small kitchen feel larger by following an open floor plan. Allow the space to carefully flow into the living or dining room.

Confuse styling your studio apartment ?

For the past 5+ years I’ve reached out to hundreds of creative people around the world to share their homes in a “sneak peek.” Many a time I’ve heard the response, “but my home is too small to feature.” Au contraire! Here are a handful of the studios we’ve shared throughout the years that prove that a home doesn’t have to be big to be beautiful. When possible I’ve shared the floor plans that the owners shared with us.  Be sure to click on each peek to see the full version and get a true sense of the space.

studio apartment design can be hard, but it can be fun as well. Image above: Michael Freimuth’s Brooklyn apartment uses canvas tracking that separates the bedroom makes the space feel that much bigger — plus it’s saved him several times on those untidy-bedroom-meets-unscheduled-dinner-party occasions. Floor plan showcases the use of space.

So, if you still confuse to decorate studio apartment interior, just google and see theres a lot of inspiration and images out there.
