Posted by on Nov 23, 2013 in Home, More | Comments Off on How to Get Organized for the Holidays

Getting organized for the holidays may sound simple enough.  After all, the holiday season comes around at the same time every year.  We know it’s coming, and we generally have the same things to do – shopping for gifts, decorating, wrapping gifts, etc.  However, knowing this and following through without a mad rush at the end is not always easy. Holiday planning and preparation can be a bit chaotic, but in some ways, most us of rather enjoy it.  What we don’t enjoy are the long lines at the department stores, rude drivers who steal our long awaited parking spaces, and family and friends who won’t RSVP to our invitations!

How to Hire a Contractor, Not a Fake

Posted by on Nov 6, 2013 in Home | Comments Off on How to Hire a Contractor, Not a Fake

BE BOLD…..I’m not shy.  I have no problem drilling the people I’m thinking of hiring to do work for me. I have a list of questions for everyone from the plumber to the boy who rakes my leaves.

Posted by on Aug 24, 2013 in Home | Comments Off on Go Ahead, Fall in Love with Color!

Just imagine how drab life would be without color! Nothing around us but black, white and grays! Wouldn’t such a world be rather bleak? So how do you choose a color scheme? It’s really quite simple, but first you have to fall in love! Fall in love with a painting, wallpaper, an area rug, even a floral arrangement and the color scheme you’ve been searching for will appear! Anything with a pattern, including upholstery or drapery can be the perfect place to start! When developing your color scheme, remember the 60%-30%-10% rule of thumb. Your favorite color should play a dominant role; 60%, while other colors should be proportionate to your dominant color focus.
