5 Tips for Decorating Your Home with Style For You And Your Pooch

You and your dog are a team, so why not decorate your home with style for both of you? You know that feeling when you walk into someone’s house and it smells like dog but they have amazing furniture? It can be hard to find the right balance between style for humans and style for dogs. But don’t worry! We’re here to help. Here are five tips on how to decorate your home in a way that will make both you and your pup happy.

Be mindful of cleaning products

Make sure that any cleaners or air fresheners are pet friendly or use natural options, such as baking soda mixed with vinegar, essential oils, lemon juice or tea tree oil. Keep this area in a cabinet that your dog can’t access.

Give your dog their own space

This can be a crate, bed or blanket. Make sure that the space is comfy and cozy for your dog. For an added touch you can add some of their favorite toys or treats to make them feel comfortable!

Remember: Don’t forget about yourself in this process too! If there’s no room for you in one area of the house, try to find a space for you too!

Designate an area that is off limits

Designate an area for your dog that is just their space. This can be a corner of the house or even in front of a door to block off certain rooms. Your pup should have someplace comfortable and safe where they can go if they feel anxious or nervous about something going on around them!

You may also want to designate another part of the house as your space. You deserve to have a place where you can go and relax, without being around or worrying about your dog!

Decorate your home appropriately for you and your dog

This is a process that should be done together. Decorating for your dog’s needs can lead to you feeling more comfortable as well! You may also want to incorporate some of their favorite toys and treats into the decor, or even hang up photos of them on the walls.

It might take time but keep working at it until both of you are happy with the design!

Be creative yet simplistic

You don’t need to go overboard with your dog’s decor! Keep it simple and use basic colors that are easy on the eyes. The best part about this is that you can change things up easily when the time comes without having to replace anything or spend a ton of money!

Keep in mind: your pup may not even notice what you’re doing- they just want to spend time with you! But if your dog does notice, be sure to praise them for being a good boy or girl

How Technology Affects the Fashion of Today

Fashion has always been an industry that is greatly affected by the latest trends and technologies, with people often looking to technology to create new silhouettes or update old classics. However, this relationship goes both ways – as technologies change so does fashion. Technology affects many aspects of society, including how we dress ourselves; the clothes we wear are now influenced by everything from social media to our work environment.

Wearable technology is growing in popularity, with companies like Apple and Fitbit creating devices that make it easier than ever to track our fitness goals. This has led many people to opt for smart watches or activity trackers instead of traditional timepieces; this also applies when dressing up – rather than wearing an expensive watch, some might prefer a smartwatch with a sleek design instead.

The workplace is also shifting, which can be seen in the increased popularity of smart suits for business professionals. These are designed to look like regular formal wear but have extra features that make life easier – they could come equipped with hidden pockets or RFID blocking technology to prevent credit card skimming. This can be linked to the fact that many workplaces now allow employees to wear casual clothes, with smart formal suits offering a happy medium between looking professional and staying comfortable.

Social media is changing how we dress as well; the rise of influencers on Instagram has led people to compete for attention online through their looks rather than just content. This can be compared to the ‘Instagram Pose’ which is a pose that people strike in photos to look more flattering, and has been widely adopted by influencers.

The rise of ecommerce has also changed how we dress – it’s now easier than ever for customers to browse online rather than physically going from store to store. This can be seen in the rise of ‘fast fashion’ – cheap, ready-to-wear clothing that is quickly designed and put into stores. This can be seen as a more cost effective option for customers who are unwilling to spend big on luxury pieces but still want to keep up with latest trends.

3) Dress comfortably.

You don’t need to be in pain to be fashionable. If you’re uncomfortable, then it’s going to show in your walk and the way that you hold yourself.

What is Russian Fashion?

Russian fashion is a unique and diverse mix of styles that has been influenced by the historical, cultural, and geographic location of Russia. The development of Russian fashion can be traced back to Peter the Great’s Westernization campaign in 17th century which introduced European culture to Russia for the first time. This event led to a shift from traditional clothing worn by Russians which was heavily influenced by Byzantine culture, to more European-influenced garments such as high-waisted gowns with panniers or hoopskirts. The 19th century saw further changes in Russian dress as following generations embraced new trends from both Europe and Asia. In recent years there has been a resurgence in interest in this style with several designers drawing inspiration from past eras for their collections.

Nowadays, there are main styles of Russian dress that can be defined as follows:

The first is the traditional style which consists of long dresses made from flax, cotton or wool. The fabric for these garments was often woven by women themselves and they were decorated with elaborate embroidery patterns known as кружевное плетёние (kruzhevnoje pletenije). The designs for this type of embroidery were passed down through generations, and there are over 300 different styles in existence. After the Russian Revolution, during the period when Communism was in power, traditional clothing continued to be worn but it was modified to remove any ornate elements such as embroidery and the characteristic bright colors which were seen as a symbol of Russian tradition.

Today, traditional styles can be worn at special occasions including weddings or other important events where elaborate outfits are called for. The typical outfit consists of a light dress made from flax with short sleeves and no adornment on the bodice. The skirt has several panels called нижняя сторона (nizhnaya storona), which means lower side and is made from a single piece of fabric that wraps around, overlaps at the front or back, and then ties together to create an opening. The dress ends just above the knee and is sometimes worn with a small shawl known as подушка (podushka) that covers both shoulders to protect them from getting cold.

On more casual occasions, traditional clothing includes ankle length black dresses made of wool or flax decorated only with embroidery on the collar and cuffs. These outfits are still worn today by older women who continue to uphold Russian traditions.

In addition, there is a style of dress that was common during the Soviet era known as советская одежда (soviet clothes) which includes both men’s and women’s garments.

Soviet style dresses for women are shorter than those worn in the past with hemlines ending at mid-thigh or knee level. They were originally designed to be loose fitting like men’s clothes, but now fit closer to the body due to tighter restrictions on fabric usage during Joseph Stalin’s rule. This also led to a more formal style of dress being introduced for women who wore them with high-heeled shoes and a small hat. Soviet styled dresses were made from cotton, wool or rayon materials that came in solid colors such as blue, green, red or grey.

In addition to these general styles there are also two specific types which evolved as a result of Soviet rule. These are known as советская летняя (soviet summer) and советская зимняя (soviet winter).

The first is for lighter clothing worn during the warmer seasons which consisted of a cotton dress with short sleeves and an ankle length skirt. These dresses are decorated with traditional embroidery patterns which can be seen on the collar, cuffs, belt or hemline of the garment. The second is for winter wear which includes several items including fur-lined boots known as сапоги (sapogi), a woolen dress known as форменка (formenka) and a heavy coat called свитер (sviter). The latter is similar to the traditional Russian outfit worn today with both men and women.
