3 Newly Wed Bedroom Decor Ideas

Here are 3 Ideas to decorate a Newly Wed bedroom

Your bedroom is a very personal and special space in your home and it should embody positive and peaceful elements so that you can rejuvenate and get a restful night of sleep. As a newly-wed you are starting your life as a married couple and your bedroom should reflect who you are as a couple, your style and your personality. If you can incorporate some of these design elements and decorate your newly-wed bedroom, it will bring you great peace and joy and enhance your married life.

  • Statement Lighting: Pay attention to the lighting in the bedroom because it can add elegance and make a statement. Consider the natural light that you have along with the size and the ceiling height of the room. Building layers of light is a good idea because your bedroom lighting should create a relaxing and soothing atmosphere and at the same time throw light on certain areas such as reading or a rug in the room or art on your wall. So soft ambient light combined with bright spot lights should make your bedroom a haven for you to retire for the day.

  • Rugs: Avoid wall-to-wall carpeting if you can. A rug, on the other hand, adds warmth and texture to a room, and you can achieve different looks by layering and/or adding colorful throws. Rugs can soften hard edges and can accommodate difficult layouts. They open up the space, and tie the room together. If your room has hard floors, an area rug will help absorb sound, keep it warm and  make it just a little bit easier to get out of bed on cold mornings by providing your feet a cushion. If you have carpeting, place an area rug right on top. It’s a great way to add extra color, texture, and pattern to your space.

  • Art: One large or 2 -3 small sized original artwork will add cheer and uniqueness to your bedroom.  It is considered good Feng Shui ( Positive energy) to have a original art in your home especially in your bedroom. A piece that will reflect who you are as a couple and add style to your space. A well placed art will turn any bedroom into a stylish personal space for the couple.

5 Unique Wedding Gifts For Couples Who Have Everything.


As an engaged couple who already has everything for your home, have you ever wondered what unique wedding gifts to put in your registry?  Couples today are getting married later in life and have all the household items they need for their home. In fact, some of them have been living together for years and may also own two sets of things. What kind of wedding gifts would appeal to couples who already have everything they would need?


Here are top 5 unique wedding gifts that couples who have everything can consider. These gifts will be special and meaningful and add value and pizzazz to their lives.



Custom Portrait

  • : Let an artist capture your best wedding or engagement photograph on canvas. An artist created painting of your favorite photo will be a great way to remind you of all the love you have for each other. A photograph is good but custom portrait is special. When someone is painting a portrait for you, it adds depth that is not easily achieved in a photo. Perhaps that is because the act of painting is generally more meaningful than someone taking a photo on their phone, but with a blank canvas you can truly capture a fresh-faced couple fully in love: maybe a rosy cheeked glow, or eyes that sparkle. It is certainly a unique way to let the world know that this is the person with whom you’ve fallen in love! Such a unique wedding gift idea!  Check out Artist Amro Ashry’s stunning portraits HERE.

Wedding Portrait by Artist Dana Swasko on Mishkalo

Wedding Portrait by Artist Dana Swasko

Portrait by Mishkalo Artist Dana Swasko: $500  Size: 11 x 14

This wedding portrait was a gift from a mother to her daughter and son in law for their anniversary. It was their favorite photo from their wedding.

Dana Swasko creates beautiful charcoal portraits. For this portrait she used many new techniques such as using white ink in the flowers and in their eyes to make those details stand out.  She also incorporated graphite to give their skin a smooth finish.

Dana says ” By creating portraits, be it a person or a home, I feel I am freezing moments in time around me, as though I am capturing the character of my time period in my own way.”

A Wedding Planning Checklist to prepare for your wedding day

Wedding Planning Checklist for Day of Wedding


Here is a day of wedding planning checklist that every bride should have. Although wedding stress starts on the day you get engaged, wedding stress peaks on the day of the wedding.

The wedding day can be very stressful and full of surprises for the bride. You have spent months planning and finding all the different vendors and venues. Finally the big day is looming near and sometimes in spite of all the effort that goes into planning, things may not go as planned.  Sometimes couples throw up their hand and say “I give up.”

Day of Wedding Checklist.


Crystal Lake Two | Different wedding registry | Wedding Registry for Art

  • Pack all your clothes and accessories that you will need for that day. You will most likely have 2-3 change of outfits. Assemble them in the order that they will be worn so that you are not scrambling to find your shoes or a pair of earrings that go with that outfit.
  • Put all your makeup essentials in one box or a bag. Mark your lipsticks with the name of your outfit so that it is easy to pick out. Also make sure you have picked out your special perfume for that day. Select a perfume that you are going to use on your wedding day, the scent of which will be a reminder of that special moment for you. Also pack some safety pins, hair clips, deodorant and tissues in case you fell emotional.
  • Make sure you have packed a pair of flat sandals to dance the night away.
  • Lastly pack a few small snacks for you to munch on while you are getting ready for the day. Keep your energy levels up for the exciting day ahead.


Personally, I have noticed many brides schedule a stress-relieving activity such as a visit to an art museum or aquarium the day before the wedding as a reliever of wedding stress. Some of Mishkalo artists such as Ira Ivanova and Karina Llergo illustrate how art is such a great stress reliever.

Make sure you print this wedding planning checklist and carry along so that your wedding day is relaxed and enjoyable.

Getting Art for your Newly-Wed Home

Getting Art for your Newly-Wed Home

Meet James and Scott – one of Mishkalo’s couples who are tying the knot in September.

Their love story started several years back at a social event for a Flag football league that they were a part of. Soon their friendship grew and they moved in together as a couple along with their two adorable cats: Binx and Penny.

Last year, at the famous Spanish steps in Washington DC, Scott proposed. Why there, you may ask. The couple have traveled extensively together and a moment that stood out for both of them was the Spanish steps in Rome. Designed in the early 20th century during D.C.’s “City Beautiful” movement, the Spanish Steps vaguely resemble the original version in Rome. Like Rome, D.C.’s Spanish Steps are a neighborhood landmark and a natural gathering place with a romantic touch. James happily accepted the Scott’s proposal.

A few months later, as the reality of their future marital life sunk in, they started looking at their home differently.  James says, “we realized that this is not just a place where we came to after work, but a place of comfort, love and our hopes for the future. And the place looks dull with bare walls that probably depresses even Mikey and Josie.

As they got around to planning their wedding – and the inevitable choice of a wedding registry – they couldn’t think of anything they wanted. Having been together, they had a fully functional home with all its utilitarian comforts.

During this time James came across Mishkalo – a wedding registry for art. “The idea appealed to me immediately” he said.  “Art is a lasting, special gift that we’ll have forever, especially when given as a token of love from our friends and family.  This art will help turn our house into a proper home”

James and Scott have set their wedding date for September 2018, exactly a year after the proposal.

You can see the art they chose for their Mishkalo Registry below. We wish them both a beautiful life together!
