How to Style an Apartment Entryway Like the Pros

May 27, 2015 9:03 am

If you want to create a stylish entryway in your rental home, there are a number of smart, design-savvy ways to use furniture to achieve the look you love. Here are a few tips from the pros that will help you to style an entryway like you see in the design magazines.

  1. Begin with a surface. To create a separated entryway, you’ll need to use some type of table as a focal point. Measure your space and invest in a side table, credenza, sofa table, or even a bench in a size that fits the area.
  2. Add storage. A good entryway has a place for everything: your keys, shoes, coat, and all of the things you find when you empty your pockets. Add a low bench or bin for shoes, a few simple hooks, and a tray to corral any loose items.
  3. Place a mirror. A mirror is especially helpful for those last-minute checks before you dash out the door. Place one directly above your table, or stagger it next to a matching frame.
  4. Finish with a small rug. To tie everything together, add a long runner-style rug or a small doormat, depending on your space. Don’t be afraid to use color here, especially if the rest of your color scheme is fairly simple.

Favori Restaurant: A Taste Adventure

May 20, 2015 9:01 am

For unique food check out Favori Restaurant, a Vietnamese eatery in Santa Ana. The signature dish of Favori has to be the baked catfish. Diners rave about this perfectly cooked whole catfish with crispy skin and tender, flaky flesh. For a truly unique experience order one for the table; the large portion size is ample enough for sharing among guests and rice wraps and fillings are included to make your very own catfish roll.

Of course, you can also order other things at Favori. Fried frog legs, crispy pork intestines, and even jellyfish salad are available to both novices and long time lovers of this delicious cuisine. Favori also offers better known dishes, such as savory soups, noodle dishes, and hot pots containing such goodies as beef, seafood, and assorted veggies. Beer and wine are also available.
