Design interior case

Un proiect de design interior modern poate părea simplu la prima vedere, dar nu este așa. Într-o casă modernă, trebuie să dispunem de toate obiectele practice, funcționale care ne ușurează și ne îmbunătățesc viața, fără ca interiorul să pară ticsit și îngrămădit. Încorporarea tuturor pieselor de mobilier și a obiectelor indispensabile vieții de zi cu zi trebuie să se încadreze într-o geometrie perfectă, în care fiecare lucru își are locul său, în scopul creării unei perspective de ansamblu spațioase, aerisite, în care excesele și elementele supraîncărcate trebuie evitate cu orice preț.

Designul interior în stil modern se axează totodată pe o amenajare practică a spațiului, cu o volumetrie impecabilă, acesta fiind unul dintre motivele principale pentru care măsurătorile experților și realizarea schițelor 3D inițiale sunt atât de importante în reușita unui astfel de demers. Nimic nu este lăsat la voia întâmplării, pentru a putea oferi clienților noștri

Decor Ideas Vintage Kitchen Designs

The vintage kitchen features that came with your house or rental—old appliances, dated fixtures, interesting floor materials—aren’t always the choices you would have made if you had designed from scratch. But if you don’t have the money to renovate (or you rent and can’t) or don’t want to renovate, choose to work with your vintage features, not fight against them! These sixteen kitchens get it right.

The vintage cabinet doors and drawers in the kitchen of Nicole & Ben’s Eclectic Family Pad in Western Australia are kept a natural wood color, while the rest of the space is washed in white, giving a clean feel to the whole room. Add in a handful of colorful vintage accessories, and the room is a delightful mix of old and new.

In Katrina, Draz & Eddie’s Melbourne Home, the kitchen wasn’t painted all white, or the appliances updated, or new modern furniture brought

Best refrigerators of 2020: Samsung, Whirlpool, Frigidaire, and more

  • Every kitchen needs a good refrigerator but finding one that’s energy-efficient, budget-friendly, and spacious enough to hold your weekly grocery haul is key. 
  • Our top pick is the Samsung 24.6 cubic foot French Door Fridge because it has lots of useful features and looks and performs like a much more expensive fridge.

When I was growing up, my family always had a standard white, freezer-on-top refrigerator. At some point, many of my friends started getting fridges with built-in water and ice dispensers on the door. I was enamored with this high-tech feature and never tired of helping myself to a glass of water.

Of course, refrigerators have come a long way since then. Recently, at The Home Depot, my eight-year-old daughter and her friend amused themselves for half an hour playing with a futuristic Samsung Family Hub Smart Refrigerator. They used their fingers to draw pictures and make notes on

Regrow Lettuce Activity For Kids

It’s pretty clear that science is everywhere including in the kitchen. Most of our classic science experiments use basic kitchen ingredients. That makes for a lot of learning with only a few simple materials. We decided to try to regrow lettuce from the ends of our romaine hearts to see what would happen. Check out how to regrow lettuce from our simple steps below.

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol

Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is an interior gateway protocol suited for many different topologies and media. In a well designed network, EIGRP scales well and provides extremely quick convergence times with minimal network traffic. 

EIGRP is an enhanced distance vector protocol, relying on the Diffused Update Algorithm (DUAL) to calculate the shortest path to a destination within a network.

There are two major revisions of EIGRP, versions 0 and 1. Cisco IOS versions earlier than 10.3(11), 11.0(8), and 11.1(3) run the earlier version of EIGRP; some explanations in this paper may not apply to that earlier version. We highly recommend using the later version of EIGRP, as it includes many performance and stability enhancements.

A typical distance vector protocol saves the following information when computing the best path to a destination: the distance (total metric or distance, such as hop count) and the vector (the next hop). For … Read More

2020 candidates and virtual campaigning: From Kennedy’s kitchen to Biden’s basement

“Use the top of your knife,” Boston chef Tiffani Faison gently coached over the video conference screen as the four-term congressman struggled to remove the bird’s backbone, one of the first steps in preparing Faison’s soy- and cola-infused poached chicken.

This is political campaigning in the age of coronavirus — an exercise that requires novel approaches from candidates who are sidelined by the pandemic from face-to-face retail politics and traditional fundraising. They’re confronting the challenge of breaking through the hourly doses of grim news from the outbreak’s front lines.

“While many folks have done parts of this before, nobody has ever had to run an entirely online campaign before,” said Amanda Litman, executive director for Run for Something, which helps progressive under-40 candidates. “We’re all figuring it out together.”

The approaches vary. For instance, Wendy Stolyarov, a Democrat running for city council in Sparks, Nevada, created mutual aid postcards emblazoned

Choosing Exterior Brick, Stone and Colors

Cherry Hill Brick by Acme, one of their best selling perfect to create a gorgeous Southern Colonial Exterior

Unless you are purposely trying to create a Southern Colonial look for your home, it seems that most clients have graduated from red brick to one that includes warmer earth tones and tumbled antiqued textures. Do not misunderstand me, red bricks are beautiful in the right home with the right style. But lack of imagination sometimes makes people choose the familiar rather than the sublime.You will not find many people describe choosing brick as having any sort of sublime attributes. But like a physical make-over, some folks needs a home style make over. Now.

When choosing exteriors, think style first, texture second and colors third.

Style: Determine what you would like. Mediterranean, old world, Tuscan, French Colonial, French Country, Austin Hill Country, etc. There are a myriad of different exterior styles

Interior Department proposes allowing hunters to bait Alaskan bears

The proposal from the National Park Service, published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, took issue with protections for black bears, “including cubs and sows with cubs,” as well as wolves and coyotes, including their pups, from “harvest practices that are otherwise permitted by the State of Alaska.”

The 2015 rule now targeted by the National Park Service also prohibited using dogs to hunt black bears and using motorboats to hunt swimming caribou.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke came into office moving to expand public hunting ground from day one and issued directives last year aimed at fishing and hunting guidelines from the department.

The park service, in its proposal Tuesday, cited two of Zinke’s orders, one calling on the agency to increase access to public lands for hunting and another that the park service said called on it to work with state partners, like Alaska.

“The purpose of this proposed
