As with most elements of home decor, choosing the proper Oriental or Persian area rug can be a difficult task. You just will know it when you see it! Most area rug purchase are made that way and your choice of rugs can easily help you define your home decor theme.
Area rugs come in various styles, such as; bright primary colors or muted earth tones, busy patterns or simple designs, you'll find an Oriental or Persian area rug that does exactly what you want.
Oriental and Persian area rugs have common patterns found in; traditional floral or curvilinear, arabesque motifs, palmettes, vines, flowers, vases, arches and gardens. There will be a medallion with spandrels and borders, or an open field with borders. Tribal rugs are often plain, or have some traditional geometric design.
You will also find some which are directional rugs, like prayer mats, or with an illustration, like a painting.
The great thing about Oriental and Persian area rugs is that they look natural in almost every room of the house. The most usual places to find them are the living room, dining room and master bedroom. We have countless stories of clients who begin by buying for their main rooms, and then just cannot stop! Rugs in foyers, family rooms and studies, runners in corridors and on steps, and smaller mats in bathrooms are just a start. Then, after they fill their homes, they do their offices!
Since handmade area rugs are proven to be superior to machine-made carpeting, they last longer even in high traffic areas such as corridors and elevators.
There are no rules that state where to place a particular style or pattern of rug, although carpets that have an open field are usually preferred in situations where a dining or coffee table would sit right over the medallion. In these rugs most of the visual interest is in the borders.
The color scheme of an area rug is usually the most important factor in choosing where to place it. The colors of the rug need not be exactly the same as the curtains or upholstery, they should just echo them in some manner, and be in the same range of primaries or earth tones. For example, if your drapes are rust, your rug does not have to be rust. But small accents of that color would complement the drapes.
The most important thing to remember is that there are no rules, other than that you should be pleased with the look and quality of the area rug you choose.

For example if the link to PayPal looks like www.paypa1.com (notice the "1" [one] instead of the "l" [letter L]) you'd know it's a bad link because it's not www.paypal.com, the legitimate site. In many cases false pages are crafted to look exactly like the legitimate ones. This is a common scam. Many times the links will come in your e-mail with a message threatening that the account will be shut down, or something of that nature. Be wary of such links in e-mail.
Beauty and fragrances: buying a good cheap or discount cologne
Discover what pertinent information that would be help you in your decsion, before you buy either, good, cheap, or discounted cologne.
Since beauty plays such an important role in our society today, and the sale of everything from makeup, to expensive creams, is on the increase, the perfume industry has profited as well, with a booming multi-million dollar market.
With a multitude of fragrances available to the consumer, finding good cologne or one that is cheap or discounted can be somewhat of a challenge.
We first need to distinguish the differences between the perfumes and fragrances available on today's market.
The fragrances available are labeled as such: perfumes, colognes, and Eau de toilettes of a perfume or cologne. The difference is in the ratio between the amounts of perfume oils or scents they contain, compared to the amount of alcohol.
Let's take a look further, at the differences below.
When a fragrance is strictly in a perfume form, the concentration of that oil and scent is at a higher caliber, and in the purest form, which means there is a greater amount of a perfume base than alcohol.
Next, the Eau de parfum, has a lesser degree of the perfume concentrate, but still provides a satisfying scent, at a more affordable price than the perfume.
Last, are the Eau de toilette and Eau de cologne which are similar in concentration and scent. Since the perfume base is at the lowest ratio in concentration, the two take on a lighter scent in fragrance.
Finally, if we take a look at the difference in price between the three, there can be a considerable difference. You can expect to pay a much higher price for the perfume quality of a fragrance, yet it may well be worth the extra money you spend.
How is this possible? Since the concentration of a perfume oil or scent is higher in a perfume, you can use the product sparingly to obtain a good fragrance, compared to a cheaper Eau de toilette of the same perfume or cologne.
Remember also, with the use of cheaper cologne you may need to continually add the product to your skin or clothes, just to maintain the fragrance level you desire. This would eventually result in the use of more of the product, with the end result leaving you purchasing more of the cologne.
To be able to have a good cologne or perfume, but at a discounted price, would be the best of both scenarios. This can be achieved by following the steps below.
Make a list of department or retail stores that you generally shop in for your favorite beauty products and fragrances. Then one by one, contact the perfume department in that store, and ask if they are featuring any, in store sales, on the fragrance or cologne of your choice. Then, compare the prices and figure out which one fits your needs, both by preference and price.
You can always do research in other areas, as well, for the best possible price on the perfume or cologne of your choice. For example, if you have a computer and internet access, you may be able to find several web sites offering discounted prices of designer fragrances online, then find which web site best suits your needs.
To buy the cheapest, is not necessarily the best, when it comes to perfumes and colognes. To be able to find the best quality cologne or perfume and at a discounted price, would be even better!
