The sense of interior designing and decoration comes naturally to people who have an artistic slant of mind. They are very creative and innovative in their own ways. Just for the sake of specializations, some people study designing at graduation level; deciding at a later time in their lives to pursue it as a career. It is obviously a growing profession that has a lot potential growth in the future years. The designers and decorators are more systematic and professional in their work; they know each and every detail of this field. Emphasis is placed on the designing of common rooms, living areas, guest rooms and bedrooms.
In a hotel during the day people are attracted by the interior design, by furnishings, shapes and colors. But at night the hotel has a second dimension, since the guest needs to stay in a safe, comfortable and protected atmosphere, but even relaxing, clean and efficient. It's clear that only artificial lighting can satisfy this mix of needs.
So the first thing to do is assure the highest comfort both to guests and to the staff. The hotel in fact is a place of work and as such it has to lighted, even if the lighting elements which assure a good view to the staff have to harmonize with the characteristics of a pleasant lighting for the hotel guests and have to be able to adequately vaporize the different areas.
A reception for example is a place that has to immediately draw the attention of the guest, as soon as he enter the hotel. Its lighting has to be at the same time attractive and impressive, with decorative elements that communicate the quality level of the services at disposal of the guest.
It's fundamental to have a good lighting of vertical surfaces and to limit horizontal lighting of working surfaces, in particular those of the reception. On the wall behind the concierge there should be much light since this is an element which draw the attention of the customer.

So, you can choose the piece that goes well with your taste and give your room, a unique look with your imagination.

Because the entire wall using a plain wallpaper, then to eliminate the impression of monotony, is made by indirect headboard lamp background of this. I like the same concept like this, the designs simple but very different effects on the room .. I love this room do not have that picture in the night, should her lamp indirect effects could be more terasa.Wall mirrors on the sides of the headboard also make the room more berkasan wide, and can also serve as a makeup mirror.
Foyer 3 bedroom apartment is directly connected with private elevator, so I tried to design the foyer where when the elevator doors open, we will immediately get the atmosphere of both interesting and impressive interior light.
Instead I make wall panels on the wall in front of the elevator doors, with patterned accent stickers, sandblast and given additional shelves as a place to put accessories. Motifs on my birthday sticker sandblastpun to art work on walls.

Everyone & their brother is writing or talking about the Ground Zero Mosque. It shouldn't be built on the 9/11 site. It is an insult to the dead Americans. How could one propose such a thing. I agree with those sentiments. Instead of further discussion of the site we should be discussing the who & why of the project. That will give us more insight into the where.
In this case the where & why are intertwined. So why the ground zero site, really. In short, dominance. Dominance or victory over the infidel. That'd be us. Throughout history Muslims have built mosques over the sacred places of their conquered foes to show the enemy the superiority of Islam. St Sophia's Basilica in Istanbul, Turkey (then Constantinople) was converted to a mosque by the Ottoman Empire. The Al Aqsa mosque was built on top of the temple mount in Jerusalem. Then there's the Cordoba House. Ring a bell? That's what they wish to call the ground zero mosque. The first Cordoba house originated around 785 AD (date are iffy). The Muslims of North Africa conquered much of Spain. They desecrated a Christian church & replaced it with the world's third largest mosque until the Spanish recaptured it around 1236 AD. It was great fun then as it still is now being a non-muslim under the Cordoba Caliphate. You can accept a second-class citizenship & pay the tax accordingly. You may convert to Islam, or you may die. Sounds just like America. I knew we had a lot in common.
Well, you say. That's all ancient history. The reason it hasn't happened in modern times is that Muslim controlled nations have been too inept to conquer anyone with an army.
Now, what about the who? The who would be the Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf. Who is this guy? The great peacemaker who just wants to bridge the gap between Islam & everyone else? I rather doubt it. He has been asked and refuses to classify Hamas, Hezbollah & the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorists. Heck, even our government has done that. He also claimed that we are at least partly to blame for 9/11 & that we created Bin Laden. What a guy. He is a big wheel in the Perdana Global Peace Organization. Ah, peace. Sounds nice. Perdana was the largest donor of the Free Gaza movement. Free them from what? They're already controlled by Hamas. And don't say from Hamas. The patsies & the rogue countries would rather them then under the control of Israel.. Always remember, you can't side with Israel (on anything) & still be enlightened. Anyway, They sponsored the recent flotilla. Recall the little spat between them & the Israelis. That was a total setup from the start. It was always to force Israel into a public relations fight Israel couldn't win. That's a very abbreviated background of Rauf. There's much more, but maybe another time. In my opinion, this is not a good guy. Oh, by the way, Rauf wrote a book in 2004. It had 2 names. One titled in English & the other in Arabic. The English version was Titled, " What's right with America is what's right with Islam." That sounds nice. The Arabic version was titled, " The call from the WTC (World Trade Center) Rubble: Islamic Da'wah from the heart of America post- 9/11." Da'wah in conjunction with Islam means "Inviting to the way of submission and surrender to Allah, or sharing the message of Islam."
We've covered the who, & why. What about the how? That's simple.
Political Correctness. Although most Americans are decent right thinking people, it seems most of our political leaders are chumps. They'll bend over backwards to please a small portion of our society, leaving the rest of us hung out to dry. See, that was easy.
Now for a little wrinkle. (I can't help myself). Rauf has an Obama connection. Can't be, you say! (I can already here the wailing). Well, that connection has a name. Eboo Patel. He is one of Obama's religious advisors. In short, Patel is more than just a passing acquaintance. He has been to Rauf's home where they discussed the renewal of Islam in America as he recounts is his own 2007 book.
Last but not least, a theory. Bait & Switch. Here's how it goes. The Imam insists the building site be at ground zero. There's the expected uproar against it. Some people (useful idiots) defend the proposal. Most oppose it. The typical back & forth ensues. Someone suggests an alternative site. That's rejected. After more outrage from the general public some other politician says we'll even give you the property & maybe even finance the building if you'll just consider relocating. Finally Rauf comes out as says, "For the good of America & the Muslims we have agreed to relocate. Everyone cheers him & they get the thing built. No one thereafter pays any mind to what will go on there or cares. Crisis averted!
