For people with home-based jobs, work is just as demanding as that in an office. Just like regular offices, a home-based one needs to be conducive to productivity. But unlike traditional offices, a home office gives you the opportunity to customize the space according to your specifications and work habits.

An ideal life includes striking a balance between work and home life. For people working from home, defining work and living spaces is a major factor in finding that balance. Separate one from the other, and you have the makings of a home that can be both comfy and work-friendly.

Below are a few ideas to help you define your home work space while keeping it stylish and practical. (more…)

Summer provides the perfect chance to head to the beach for some well-deserved R & R. But if your beach plans fall through, fret not. Summer vacation is a state of mind.

Summer Trees and Décor Ideas

Color plays a major role in setting the summer vibe. Achieve that perfect summer feeling by mixing and matching pieces with bright colors. Here’s a list of trees that would look great during the season:

As its name implies, Independence Day is all about doing your own thing. That liberty also extends to home decorating. With the 4th of July coming up, now’s your chance to express yourself and dress up your home in any way you want. A great way to decorate is with select trees from Treetopia. That way, you can decorate for both the 4th of July, and the incoming holiday season!

This week, we’re giving you tips and inspiration on how to decorate with our trees. Feel free to mix and match ideas as you see fit – after all, this is the land of the free and the home of the brave!

The Stars and Stripes Christmas Tree

For anyone looking for a tree to display this Independence Day, this would be the top choice. It comes with a rotating stand so you can showcase the medley of patriotic colors in all their glory. The striking patterns are tree decorations in their own right. To complete the ensemble, bring out the star-shaped ornaments and tree-topper you used last Christmas. Golden ornaments are ideal for contrast against the already bright red, white, and blue medley of colors. They also add a touch of elegance to your Independence Day-themed tree. An all-American tree for an all-American holiday—that’s the Treetopia Stars and Stripes Christmas tree. (more…)

Space is the most important element of your home’s interior. You can fill your living room with the most beautiful furniture around, but it wouldn’t be much of a “living room” if you couldn’t actually live in it due to an inefficient use of space. This scenario applies to your kitchen— perhaps even more so.

The kitchen is where most of the housework gets done. Compared to the living room or bedroom, the kitchen sees more work done in a day than both those rooms combined. Smaller kitchens pose an even bigger challenge, since you’ll need to make judicious use of the limited space available.

Below are a few tips on how you can make a tiny kitchen as functional as possible – and have a bit of fun, while you’re at it! (more…)

As the cool days of spring march closer towards summer, many of us dream up of wonderful ways to celebrate Memorial Day weekend. If you plan to host a holiday get-together, dressing up your home for the occasion sets a cheerful ambience for your family or friends.

Hanging Old Glory in your home is definitely a must, but to create a truly unique display of admiration for our heroes, you’ll want to go above and beyond the usual Memorial Day decorations. Putting together a patriotic-themed Christmas tree is a fun and easy option, and the results can be so memorable you’ll want to make it a personal tradition.

When it comes to color palettes, only good old red, white, and blue will do. Treetopia’s Candy Cane Christmas Tree sports playful sugar and peppermint swirls that resemble our flag’s red and white stripes, making it a natural choice for our theme.

Put on your gown and high heels, folks, because we’re going posh and pretty this weekend! The stage is all set for the 71st Annual Golden Globes Awards, and Treetopia is there to help spice up the red carpet!

An annual formal ceremony, the Golden Globes awards the entertainment industry’s best and brightest in film and television, both local and foreign. In that one special night, Hollywood’s elite gather to honor their peers and delight fans with a glimpse of their favorite stars at their most glamorous.

This year, the awards will broadcast live from the posh Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, and we’ll be adding eye-popping color and flair to the evening’s proceedings in true Treetopia style.

Three orange topiaries from Treetopia

These lovely orange topiaries, designed especially for the occasion by Treetopia, will be rubbing shoulders with your favorite celebrities in the press room and on the red carpet. With their sparkling array of clear lights, these orange topiaries echo the iconic look of the Golden Globes statuettes. Personally, we’re crossing our fingers for American Hustle for best picture and Parks and Recreation’s Amy Poehler for Best TV Actress in a Comedy. (She deserves that award, seriously!)

So invite your family and friends to keep an eye out for our fabulous creations when you watch all glitz, glamor, and fun on January 12, 2014. And if you’re looking for something special for your own industry event, visit Treetopia for the perfect tree that will fit right into your party.

Treetopia is proud to share with you the graceful holiday designs of Laura Trevey from Bright Bold & Beautiful.

 

In her blog post, “Tis The Season To Be Jolly,” Laura relates to her readers how she created an elegantly classic holiday look in her home with Treetopia’s Balsam Spruce Christmas tree and a Biltmore Pine Wreath and Garland. With a scattering of red, yellow, and blue ornaments, Laura gave her tree a beautiful, back-to-basics look that proves that less is definitely more. By suspending the wreath over the mantel and draping the garland over the bookcases, she maintained the naturally light, bright, and cheery ambiance of her living room.
