Window Coverings In Your Home

Window Coverings In Your Home

Every house-proud homeowner wants to make the most of their home in terms of décor, and an integral part of achieving the perfect look for your property is getting the right drapes for each room. Because the theme and décor in a home can vary from one room to the next, it is important to consider a number of factors before selecting your window coverings. Some of the factors you need to consider when selecting drapes is the type of room you are buying for, the size of the windows, the type of ambiance you wish to create for the room, and the design and décor of the room. For instance, if you are buying drapes for your kids’ bedrooms, heavy elaborate covering would look a little odd and could work out quite costly, whereas lighter coverings with simple designs could prove ideal. On the other hand, if you have a room that is reserved for entertaining, where the décor is rich and elaborate, the heavier window treatments could fit in nicely.


Nepalese-Tibetan Rugs

Nepalese-Tibetan Rugs

Hand-knotted rugs have been made in the Nepalese highlands by indigenous craftmen for centuries, but these items (known locally as Raadi, Paakhi and Gailaincha) were almost exclusively woven for personal use, and, in a commercial sense, the Nepalese rug-making industry only began with the introduction of Tibetan refugees (a mass exodus of Tibetan refugees started in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and since then all Tibetan rugs and other arts and crafts have been produced by Tibetan exiles). Families, or groups of friends, set up simple wooden looms in their homes, and, as the market for their rugs began to expand, these operations developed into small workshops, often consisting of little more than two or three looms in a cowshed. With the added support of the Nepalese government and international aid agencies, rug-making has developed into Nepal’s single most important export industry.
