Ray of light!

Well designed lighting is essential for a comfortable and attractive home. We love redecorating our homes, in big ways and small. However, before venturing into fancy lights, it is important to take all the practical aspects into consideration. Whether you are creating a lighting scheme from scratch or rethinking your arrangements, assess your space and decide before calling in an electrician. Use a trained electrician for rewiring and to discuss plans thoroughly before work commences. Your options range from ambient lights, ceiling mounted down lights, lamps, concealed lighting, task lighting, pendants, chandeliers, wall and recessed lighting. It is also important to devote time to finding products that complement furnishings and other style elements in your room.

Origin of Pilates

Born in 1883, Joseph Pilates was a sick child. He spent a lot of time researching avenues for fitness and body building and developing exercises to overcome his ailments and become stronger. During World War I, he made exercise equipment from springs of hospital beds and used the exercises he developed to help wounded soldiers get stronger and back on their feet. When the influenza epidemic in 1918 claimed thousands of lives, he noted that none of his trainees had died. He eventually moved to New York in 1928 and started what would be the first Pilates studio, which soon became popular with dancers. Almost 90 years later, Pilates remains an effective form of exercise and is now popular worldwide.
