  Money can be a touchy subject for kids and parents alike, but it's also a topic that needs to be discussed. We want our children to understand the value of money and how it works, but it can be tricky to discuss these concepts without sounding preachy. As a parent myself, I've found that making learning about money fun is one way to get my child interested in the topic without worrying about them feeling like we're pushing an agenda or being lectured at. Here are some fun ways that you can teach your child about money : Let kids invent their own games or create their own money. Let kids invent their own games or create their own money. This works especially well with older children who already have a grasp on financial concepts like spending, saving, budgeting and investing.

Beautify Your Home: The Do's And Dont's Of Interior Design

When you decide to change your home interior style, you may have ideas about some of the changes you want to make. Due to the lockdowns brought upon by the Corona virus pandemic, we have a lot of time to plan home interior design changes carefully before taking any steps. If in case you need some thoughts on how to get started, read these tips first to learn what works best when it comes to interior design.

Choosing the right furniture

Before replacing your old furniture, take time to carefully think about your wall paint colors, either you repaint it or just install DIY wallpaper. Then, evaluate your furniture if it will complement the accent shades you want to achieve. If you think you need to replace them, auction your old furniture so you will have enough funds to buy a new one. Common mistakes include adding bulky armchairs or sofas with decorative patterns, textures or colors that detract from the rest of the room. Another mistake is to grab an antique piece and put it in the same conversation area as modern furniture. You don't need to get rid of your favorite antique furniture, but give it its own space in a separate area. The main furniture of the room should always complement the design style of the room.

Give attention to lighting

 Light affects the mood. Choose the right light fixtures that can provide general ambient indoor lighting. As we all know lightings can affect the feel of the room too. So, carefully choose the right sizes, colors and design elements as well. An example is the use of upward lighting. By placing sconces high on the wall and directing the light upwards, the ceiling will appear taller. Mix and match different types of lighting until you get the ambience you want.

Assign seating areas

Creating seating areas in the living room, dens, study and bedroom make these rooms feel comfortable and warm. Arrange seats toward the center or slightly to one side, avoid pushing the seat against the wall except in small rooms where it is impractical to place furniture anywhere but against a wall.

Create Seamless Transitions 

The overall style of your home should work in harmony. Though you can create each room to have its own appeal and atmosphere, make sure to make seamless transitions between rooms by using similar design features, patterns or color palettes.

Minimalist is the new norm

Fill each room only with things that serve a purpose. Less clutter, simple yet elegant. Cut down on your collection of statues and small objects to avoid making the space seem too busy. Instead, just choose a few items to display and store others in cupboards or create a separate room to exhibit your collections.

Don’t Overdo a Theme

Stick on your chosen theme, donot over-decorateIn interior design, a little often goes a long way. Often, subtle trims feel more elegant, and you're less likely to tire of the design any time soon.

No matter which style you choose, an effective approach in interior design comes down to mixing the right textures, colors, and patterns to enhance the space and create the desired ambience. Keep this in mind as you make changes, and take breaks to take a step back and evaluate the process.
