  1. {50 shades of gray – the paint edition}
    There is quite the buzz in the air about the movie, 50 Shades of Grey, you can’t help but read about it, hear about it, and see it everywhere. People can’t seem to get enough of it. So welcome to 50 Shades of Gray – The Paint Edition.

  4. {backyard bungalows: designer sheds and outbuilding}
    Well, I have come upon a new trend – backyard sheds. Nope, not those ugly sheds designed to house your tools and your mower; but rather a separate building designed for relaxation, entertainment and a refuge from the real world.
  5. {fabulous front door paint ideas}
    A simple, inexpensive exterior makeover will add plenty of curb appeal (and home value) and welcome you home each day. And new paints make it even easier to brighten your front door.
  6. {choosing colors – going from beige to greige}
    I spent hours looking at paint samples, and I learned that gray can be a tricky color to choose as it can skew either blue or brown – and, depending on what accessories and furniture you have, it’s important to lean one way or another.
  7. {bits & pieces: dog washing stations}
    But we should add that if you’re painting the walls in your pampered pooch parlour, Hirshfield’s recommends our Heavy Duty Latex Enamel — doggone indestructible and highly resistant to the splishing and splashing and inevitable after-bath shaking.
  8. {what the color of your front door says about you}
    What’s so fascinating about the portal to a house? Perhaps it’s because an interesting front door communicates something about the personality you’ll find inside. What does your front door color say about your mood and your home?
  9. {how to pick the right paint color for your home}
    Painting the exterior of your home doesn’t happen often, so when you’re deciding on a color, you have to be 100% confident that this color will be timeless, elegant, and beautiful.

{wallcovering wednesday: easy up and easy down with sure strip}

If you’ve shied away from wallpaper in the past because you were worried about the paste and the mess, York has a paper for you. And if you avoid wallpaper because you hate trying to take it down later – you’ll like it even better. Prepasted wallcoverings aren’t new, but York’s Sure Strip® goes one step further. This high-performance paper is prepasted to go up easily and come down in one piece – guaranteed.

York says Sure Strip® wallcoverings are easier to install and easier to remove, because they are manufactured with a unique, high-performance substrate and special adhesive. When wet, the high-performance material acts more like a large sticker than an old-fashioned wallpaper. It smooths effortlessly on the wall and removes in full strips when it’s time to redecorate.
