What is triple milled soap?

The process of milling soap entails shredding the soap apart with rollers and then putting it back together again in a high pressure press. In a triple milled soap the soap has gone through this milling process three times. This process makes the soap much stronger and distributes any added fragrance more thoroughly.If you have never tried this soap you will be amazed at how long it lasts especially in the shower.Here at HouseWarmings we are having a special on our 100 gram size of triple milled soaps. They are 3 for $15 and come in a great variety of fragrances  as well.

Yes We Can!

Are you having a difficult time finding a piece of furniture that looks right in your space? You might not know this but we can have custom wooden furniture made for you. If you go to the Suppliers heading on our Webpage you can look up Florio Woodworking and see some of the pieces that can be made. For some of us space in our homes is at a premium. Having properly scaled furniture can make a huge difference not only to the feel of your space but also to its functionality. For example you might have a tight diningroom where a regular sideboard won't fit. If you have a custom table built at half depth you will now have a place to rest your extra dishes. You might even have enough room for a couple of small lamps giving you some extra lighting!Custom furniture is not as expensive as you might think and in this case improving the functionality of your diningroom so markedly is worth every penny.

After much thought and inspiration at design shows Briar, the owner of HouseWarmings, has decided that the look she wants for the store will be "Urban Romance". What is Urban Romance? Well it certainly isn't frou frou.

To create the Urban Romance look you must keep your bigger pieces like the sofa in neutral colours with classic lines. It is with the accessories that you add the romance and a pop of colour. In store for example we have gorgeous cuddly Tibetan Lambswool toss cushions that are the perfect Urban Romance accessory. They come in fun bright colours like hot pink, teal blue, bright purple, and also in neutrals like black cream and grey. If you add to a traditional neutral sofa any toss cushions or throw with a romantic pattern, a fun print or an interesting texture you will have arrived at Urban Romance. 

Besides the new accessories that add that Urban Romance look we have a new line of nesting and coffee tables made by Style in Form. To Briar they are the epitomy of our look - soft yet sophisticated.
