Home Improvement and Remodeling Ideas

When you’re a homeowner, you have the benefit of creating custom looks for your home. You don’t have to ask anyone for permission to paint a window, door or staircase. You have free reign. However, once you have free reign to do as you please, it can feel a little overwhelming when you’re in the space and don’t know where to start.

First, it’s always best to start with the foundation. Consider creating a neutral foundation as your base. You can choose to paint the walls in neutral colors like white, gray or cream. As you choose the color that works perfectly for you, purchase the furniture that’ll complement that look. Once you have the foundation set, you can accessorize and have fun with lots of color. Consider these three projects that can add visual interest to your home.

1. Staircase
A staircase is a place that many people overlook. There are some who like to add a nice carpeted runner, but consider trying something different. If you have carpeted stairs, remove the carpet and paint the staircase. You can paint each step with a wooden finish. However, consider adding interest on the vertical part of each step with decals, bright paint or wallpaper. You can create a custom decal that spells out the family name, the words to a scripture or a motivational quote. This is a really unique way to showcase your personality.

2. Bathroom Wall
The bathroom wall is an amazing place to have some fun. After all, it’s a smaller space. If you make an error, you can easily close the door and try again at another time. Consider adding custom color ceramic tile to the walls to make a major statement. Once you develop a vision, do some research to see how it would potentially come out.

3. Accessories
There are countless ways to accessorize your home. Since accessories can be anything from a statement piece of furniture to a picture frame, it’s a nice idea to use the accessories to infuse bursts of color into the room. Create a gallery wall and paint all of the picture frames in a color like taupe, blue or green. Choose something interesting. Add black and white photos to the frames for a consistent look.

Adding Beauty and Value to Your Yard

The look and layout of your yard determines much of your home’s value.  When it is organized and well-kept, it can increase the resale value of your property.  It also adds to the aesthetics of the entire neighborhood.

However, you may lack the skill and time needed to transform your yard from an overgrown jungle into a sophisticated and beautiful environment.  By hiring contractors for seeding, weeding, and garden landscaping Sarasota homeowners like you can get the yard you have always dreamed about without exerting the physical energy yourself.

Choosing the Layout and Design

When you hire professional landscapers, you may need to know to some degree what kind of look you want for your yard.  The landscapers have to know how to plant and seed it so it will grow in the manner you wish for it.  They also need to know in what pattern to mow the yard itself.

If you are not sure of what kind of look you want, you can get ideas by looking at the company’s website.  You can take a look at the gallery of photos and see what kinds of jobs these contractors have done for other clients.  Based on those photos, you may choose one that suits your needs the best.

The landscapers can also put in new plants to make your yard look more dimension and beautiful.  Along with seeding new grass, they can plant flowers and shrubs up close to your house or put in succulents along the sidewalk to add both color and beauty to your property.

Given the weather in Florida, it makes sense that you might want plants that can withstand the elements.  The landscapers can tell you which varieties thrive in hot and humid climates.  They can also tell you what ones might be natural insect repellents and keep pests away from your home.

Landscaping your yard is a big job for which you might be ill-suited.  You can hand off its upkeep and design to professionals who are trained and experienced in this type of yard work.

My First Time to Post in this Blog

I’m blogging for a long time already. Since I started I managed six blogs but had to stop two blogs because I didn’t update these two regularly. And I do blogging because this is my source of income. These two blogs didn’t give me enough earnings so its hard to maintain because I need to pay for renewal of domain. So I focused now with my four blogs but sadly I rarely updated them because I need new laptop. The one I was using was acting bad already. So when I need to post something I need to go to computer shop. I’m not comfortable going in computer shop but that’s the only way to update my blogs.

Anyway, this blog belongs to my sister-in-law. This is the first time, I will be posting here. I was the one who taught her to blog but because she is also busy with her offline work she can’t focus and manage this regularly. She wants me to continue this blog. As I said I stopped two of my blogs because I can’t manage but I am giving this blog a try. Now, I have five blogs. I hope I can manage because blogging in computer shop is not comfortable and sometimes I don’t have anything to share so it is hard to maintain a blog. Oh well, all the best for me on this blog hope to share more general topics.

It certainly is a great way to start the morning than having a nice coffee, with hot pan de sal, a Filipino bread literally means bread of salt and slices of cheese.

Today I wake up at 3.00 in the morning, I don’t know why I woke up this early :-(, because most of the time i wake at around 6.00 in the morning.  I decided to  get online, first my Facebook account and then listening and watching the old 80’s music/video in youtube together with hot coffee and pandesal. Breakfast with hot coffee and pandesal is a typical Filipino breakfast.

           After that I just went out to walk and have some stretch, feel the cold of atmosphere,  I felt refreshed and full of energy. What a beautiful way to start the day.

WEDDING

Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes.  Most wedding ceremonies involve an exchange of wedding vows  by the couple, presentation of a gift (offering, ring(s), symbolic item, flowers, money), and a public proclamation of marriage by an authority figure or leader. Special wedding garments are often worn, and the ceremony is sometimes followed by a wedding reception. Music, poetry, prayers or readings from religious texts or literature are also commonly incorporated into the ceremony based on the wikipedia.

They have simple and stunning decorations inside the church with different flowers together with the red anthurium flower that attract the wedding arc design. My hubby, Vince and I were just taking a picture as souvenirs.
