Monday, April 29, 2013 - Common sense can keep your home safe

When it comes to home safety and security, this advice may sound like a no brainer, but is worth repeating: always lock your doors. It's surprising how often burglars enter through unlocked doors. Don't get into the habit of closing a window without locking it. All too often, homeowners close a window and forget to lock it, creating an easy entry for the "bad guys." Window coverings not only conceal you; they also mask your expensive electronics, so make sure you always close your drapes or ... Full Article...

Monday, April 22, 2013 - Curb Appeal: Lush plantings, grey palette create natural elegance

First to go: dated awnings and colour scheme. What struck me at first were the striped, sun-bleached awnings that the owner wished to replace. The last time I saw these probably was in the '80s. The weak-looking, unattractive round post, the white plastic fixtures and the powder blue and banana cream colouring of the house felt so passé. There is an imposing, gigantic, icy blue fir adorning the lot. Near it is an attempt to create a perennial garden from which most of the plants should be ...

Monday, April 15, 2013 - Living Wall Beautifies Balcony

Fill a picture frame with colourful succulents. One of the hottest trends in gardening today is vertical or wall gardens, in which plants are grown on a vertical surface as opposed to in pots or planters on the horizontal plane. I recall writing columns on this topic many years ago, and it appears what was old is new again. A walk around the University of Alberta campus will show vertical gardening going back to the 1900s. The Virginia creeper-covered brick walls always had a special appeal, ... Full Article...

Monday, April 8, 2013 - More vs less

The best thing about my job is shopping with other people's money and get paid to do this. I whip through a decor store and pile my cart mountainously high full of the latest bling, trending colours and decorative accessories. Groovy toss cushions in the season's hottest hues and hip patterns, statuettes of anything from nature's forms to spiritual symbols. Picture frames, fake greenery and other functionless paraphernalia we adore accenting our spaces with. My most recent renovations, after a ... Full Article...

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - From child's room to adult space

When a young adult leaves the comforts of home to set out on his or her own, homeowners are left with a bedroom that just calls out to be made over. However, the experience of a child leaving the nest can be bittersweet, and some parents struggle with the decision to renovate or leave the room intact. Converting a room can be an emotional process, but there are several different ways to put a newly vacated room to good use. What to do with a room may hinge on who still lives in the house. ...
