How Painting Your Walls Can Be Life Changing

Happy Tuesday!

When it is this cold we sometimes spend a lot more time indoors, even if you love outdoor sports. Painted walls can be life changing. The colour or colours that you choose can help lower stress, improve mental health and help you to relax. With more time spent indoors, choosing paint colours is important.

We all have our own personal preferences when deciding on what paint colours to choose, but if you have a stressful job, coming home to bright red walls may not be the best choice. That doesn’t mean boring white walls either.  Here are some popular paint colours and moods they evoke.

Light Blue-Such a popular colour and for good reason. The right shade of light blue can really help  you feel calm and relaxed. Blue tones are also popular best sellers. It is a perfect colour for a bathroom or bedroom. Studies have shown that homes with light blue painted walls sell for more money.

Yellow-It is a cheery, a confident mood boosting colour, but studies have shown that babies tend to cry more in yellow rooms. The wrong tone of yellow though can cause fear and anxiety.

Green-Green can represent growth, freshness, nature and energy. I love working with green and there are many great shades that work well within a home.

Pink-Pink can be euphoric and refreshing. I like to choose lighter shades of pink for a kids room. Softer pinks look great in a guest bedroom as well.

Have a wonderful day!

With the holidays fast approaching, there is still time for some fun, creative DIY projects that won’t eat up precious time.

Modern Christmas printables are super easy – print and frame – and you have some artwork for this season. You can use them to create a unique look for a serving tray as well.

Decorate your table with a wreath made from fresh rosemary – clean, simple and smells great.

Creating a festive holiday atmosphere does not have to be stressful or time-consuming. Here are some ideas…….Happy Decorating!

Happy Monday!

It is really getting busy out there! Usually, I order most of my gifts online, but this may change for this year. I really do have enough even in terms of decorations for the home. It is always nice though to pick up a few housewarming gifts for friends when visiting. Here is a round-up of a few gifts that are super festive for the holiday season ( hoping that they will arrive on time ).

Great Fall Picks!

Happy Tuesday!

It has been a little crazy around here but in a good way. I love the month of October. You have Thanksgiving and Halloween to look forward to, so what is not to like about this month!

I am starting this month off with some great Fall finds. I am always searching for awesome products especially if they are designed or made in Canada. I have found a few items that you may like.

This is also a great time to pull out some fall decor pieces too. Changing your toss pillows, and adding some earthy hues can really help transform a space. Ideal for a beautiful season like Autumn.

Your Fall Property Exterior Maintenance Checklist

Happy Tuesday!

Brrr it is coming. Yes, I am talking about the cold weather. Here is a checklist to get your home ready for the upcoming months.

  • Clean your gutters- Gutters are important for collecting water and directing the water away. Clogged gutters can cause mold and damage.
  • Hose bib- Drain your hose bib, remove and store garden hoses.
  • Water Irrigation System- Blow the water out of your sprinkler.
  • Store and clean your outdoor furniture and cover the barbecue.
  • Check your roof- Fall is a good time to check your shingles. Worn, torn or missing shingles can lead to water damage.
  • Windows and Doors- Drafts can be expensive. You can easily feel the drafts on a windy day. Windows many need new windowstripping or may need to be replaced if they are leaking.
  • Say no to critters- Check for holes, install vent covers and set traps. Hire a professional if you cannot resolve your critter problem.
  • Check your walkway, steps, and outdoor railing. I personally know a few people who have injured themselves on uneven walkways and steps.
  • Remove and replace outdoor bulbs. Our days are getting shorter therefore having a well lit walkway or landing is important.
  • Book with your snow removal company. Have snow shovels or a snow blower that is in working condition.

Have a fantastic day!
