As for your design style, let’s say it’s Asian inspired. You wouldn’t be alone with interest in that motif. The American bath culture has indeed changed. Stressed homeowners seek refuge and solace and that’s why so many of us are creating environments in our homes conducive to the Eastern concept of “centering.” You don’t have to be a certified Feng Shui master to recognize this increasing trend. Which translates to simple, clean lines and minimalist features that are a signature of the Asian-influenced design leaning. So hot in home furnishings, it’s not at all surprising that this thematic has made its way into the kitchen and bath. It’s a measure of good design.

It’s all about global style. From deep soaking tubs, exotic shower waterfalls and sinks that sleekly exemplify the art of Zen.

As homeowners integrate Japanese koi ponds into estate home entryways and lanai water features (as in a tranquil Asian-style lushly landscaped courtyards), the Asian-motif’s grace and beauty continues to be used for accessories, flooring and furniture. In hardgoods, there are plenty of Asian-inspired looks, including: faucets with a bamboo-like sculpted finishes, along with drawer pulls reminiscent of bamboo, wood cabinetry inspired by Asian aesthetics and a sink series with its square wooden basins modeled after a traditional Japanese soaking tub.

Clean lines and simple forms specifically characterize shower screens defined by Pacific/eastern cultures. Asian design can be more asymmetrical. It is subtle, yet dramatic, and creates a peaceful ambiance. What’s noteworthy about Asian fusion basics is that some of the products aren’t even necessarily defined as such. But what makes them work so well is that they offer a “less is more” point of view with linear, sleek and contemporary sensibilities that combine unique and differentiating elements.

10 Signs to Look for That Mom or Dad May Need Care

When I tell people I run a home NDIS Service for the elderly, many people ask me how they will know when their elderly loved one needs assistance. So I made a list of the things in which, in my experience, are definite signs that help – in whatever form you choose-is needed.

1. Neglecting themselves by not bathing or brushing teeth or combing hair. You will notice body odor, bad breath, or a general appearance of looking unkept. They may have sores on their skin or infected toenails due to negligence.

2. Has there been a change in appetite? Weight loss? Missing meals or eating inappropriately (just eating candy or having ice cream for breakfast). No signs of cooking being done.

3. The cleanliness of the home is a big tip off and often the first and earliest sign things are slipping. Dirt and grime go unseen due to poor eyesight, vacuuming, scrubbing the bathtub or mopping cannot be done because of physical limitations, etc.

4. Personality changes such as talking too loudly or unable to contribute appropriately to a conversation. They may be listless or ask you to repeat the same thing a dozen times in an hour. There may also be angry denials that anything is wrong.

5. Do you see examples of forgetfulness? Mailbox overflowing with mail, newspapers piling up in yard, utilities being shut off for non payment are common signs.

6. No longer able to grasp their finances. Bills may not be paid or paid twice. Checkbook no longer balanced. Not depositing Social Security check or other funds.

7. Evidence of physical harm such as burns from the stove or water, bruises or cuts from falls or urinary tract infections from lack of hygiene all point to someone who is no longer safe by themselves.

8. No longer interacting with friends or neighbors, no longer attending the usual social events and not interested in former hobbies are all clues something has changed with your loved one.

9. Spending all day watching infomercials or the shopping channels and making large, unnecessary purchases that begin to pile up-many times unopened is very common with women.

10. Forgetting to take or taking wrong amount of their medicine means they are no longer able to keep up with which pill should be taken at what time. We also may be “self medicating” with alcohol.

Even one of these signs is a cause for concern and a time to be proactive!! Begin discussing need for assistance and learning about the different types of care available ( home care, nursing home, etc.)…
