5 EASY WAYS TO CREATE

THE AROMA OF NATURE IN THE HOME 2

FRAGRANT WAX BARS

Fragrant wax bars with the delicate smell of roses, lavender, or other flowers are much easier to create than you think. Simply place your favourite flowers in melted wax and freeze it. You can use these bars in small spaces such as a closet – hang several bars on the back wall of the closet and it will become filled with the freshness of spring flowers.

In order to achieve the smell of nature in the home, it is unnecessary to purchase aerosol cans, sprays, or toxic aromatic disks. There are methods to create pleasant fragrances using natural ingredients.

1

AN ASSORTMENT OF DRIED FRUITS

If you enjoy a sweet and pleasant aroma, you can create an assortment of dried fruit slices, the peels of citrus fruits, and cinnamon twigs. The combination of the strong smell of peel and various spices effectively uplifts the mood. Such a sachet can be hand-made and you can display it in an elegant vase in the living room or bedroom.

COFFEE CANDLES

FRESH BAKED GOODS

Fragrant oils are not limited to candles – they can be effectively incorporated with reeds. The light aroma of oils, emitted from wooden reeds, will not be overwhelming. Furthermore, the entire composition with the reeds will belong in any interior. All that you need to do is find a suitable bottle (you can decorate it accordingly if you wish), mix several oils at its base (three is enough), and place the reeds inside. It may take some time for the aroma to appear. In order to speed up this process and fully drench the reeds, you can alternate between placing the reeds from both ends. You can also experiment with various types of oils and choose the combination that is most appealing to you. This arrangement can be placed on the dining table or nightable. Enjoy!

Much like freshly brewed coffee, these candles smell mouth-watering! Instead of throwing away used powdered coffee, use it for the creation of candles that will fill your home with the pleasant aroma of coffee beans.

Nothing makes our evening after work better than the smell of fresh baked goods! This aroma overshadows all other fragrances and has an appealing advantage – it is edible! Enjoy experimenting!

FAMILY CLASS OF IMMIGRATION partners who are suffering from abuse or neglect. An Overseas Sponsorship is when you, as a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident of Canada, apply to Sponsor your Foreign National Spouse who is not residing in Canada. The advantage of an Overseas Sponsorship application is that it generally has a faster processing time than an Inland Sponsorship application. The the disadvantage is that it will likely be difficult to live together with your Foreign Spouse in Canada until an immigration officer renders a positive decision on your application.

The objective of the Family Class of immigration is to reunite close family members in Canada. The Government of Canada strongly supports keeping families together whenever possible. As such, the processing of Family Class applications is given the highest priority at Canadian Visa Offices. In this article we discuss The Spousal Sponsorship Category If you are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident, and qualify, you are able to sponsor your loved one from abroad for Permanent Resident status in Canada. The sponsor and sponsored person must prove that their relationship qualifies under Spouse, Common-law Partner or Conjugal Partner NOTE: Canada recognizes same-sex marriage, and same-sex partners may be eligible to apply.

6

ALL ABOUT HOME

Permanent Residency granted under the Spousal Sponsorship program comes with some conditions. The sponsor is financially responsible for the person sponsored for three years after the sponsored person becomes a permanent resident. When sponsoring your Spouse, there are no minimum financial requirements. However, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, when reviewing your application, will want to see that you and your spouse or partner are financially stable and will not result to social assistance as a means of financial support. A two-year legitimate relationship regulation applies to spouses/partners who have been in a relationship for two years or less and who have no children in common with their sponsor at the time of application submission. Once in Canada, the sponsored person must live with their spouse/ partner in a ‘legitimate relationship’ for two years, or face the possibility of having their Permanent Residency revoked. Exceptions will be made for sponsored spouses or

e-mail: aahtoronto@gmail.com

If you and your foreign national spouse live together at least one year in Canada, then you will need to sponsor your spouse under the Inland Sponsorship application category (inside Canada). In this case, your foreign spouse will have temporary status in Canada. Although the Inland Sponsorship is a lengthy process, it enables your foreign spouse to be eligible for an Open Work Permit while the application is being processed. When sponsoring a member of the Family Class, aside from the basic documentation like your identity documents or status documents, you will need to strongly demonstrate the genuineness of your relationship. Follow and keep up with our publishing, stay tuned for the next article regarding to Parents/Grandparents Sponsorship Kindly contact us to receive further information and find out if you qualify for this Program.

air to easily travel through; it is transparent and does not block anything. Consequently, it will be suitable in any interior and will not create a heavy atmosphere. Lately, weaving has become increasingly popular. It is common to see weaves in the back of chairs and armchairs, sofas, shelves, cabinet doors, and lampshades. Weaved lampshades look very effective in an interior as they provide a complex set of decorative shades. Netted furniture can look both romantic and industrialized depending on the specific material used.

The best helper in widening the interior is the garbage bin. Sometimes, it is enough to simply get rid of unneeded accessories that you do not use. This will allow you to enjoy a “sudden” feeling of lightness.

9 Designer Secrets of Free Space Not enough space? Your apartment gives off the impression of a thrift shop or residential warehouse? Below is a list of tips and methods that will help you “widen” your space and will allow you to take a deep breath. You will not need to buy extra square meters.

1

When organizing your space, avoid independently standing wardrobes. Hide anything you can into walls, niches, or even hidden storage spaces in the floor and ceil-

ing. This way, it will be easy to uphold a tidy interior.

2

Partitions from the floor to the ceiling are not necessary. Allow the light to fill the entire interior. Only the bathroom can be fully isolated from the outside world.

3

Doors made in a matte material instead of panels work for the same goal – they diffuse light into all of the rooms in the interior. “Go to the light” – the law of a good architect and a rule in a spacious interior.

4

Choose modern furniture made from transparent material with thin legs or made from nets. A net is light and allows

e-mail: aahtoronto@gmail.com

A flower basket should be part of the wall; only this way a proper balance will be achieved. Here, another tip comes into play. If the cornice is the same colour as the walls, it adds to the height; however, if it is the same colour as the ceiling, it adds to the width. It is best to choose an intermediate colour between that of the ceiling and walls.

7

Choose cooler tones for the background as they seem lightweight. This theme should be upheld by lamps with thin stems, neutral wooden frames around the furniture, and so on.

8

Get rid of any excess items around the windows. Heavily decorated windows make the interior visually smaller. If the view from the window is a panorama of a busy city, obtaining rolling curtains is sufficient for the room to seem more spacious.

9

Do not become attached to one item or scheme; be able to easily change the interior around. If you wish, you can even move. Do not keep more items than necessary for your daily life or memories. Most importantly, when choosing an apartment, pay attention to the view from the window. The sky, sun, greenery, and landscapes that you wish to look at over and over again are exactly the type of air you need.

A PAPER KITCHEN Make a list of all the materials you associate with creating a durable and beautiful kitchen. Surely, your list does not include paper. The only exception is if you are familiar with the new and unique material called Paper Stone. Paper Stone is made of 100% recycled paper which is drenched in a special tar mixture. Some of these mixtures are made of naturally phenolic cashew shell oils. After specialized processing, regular paper becomes an extraordinarily durable and hard material with impressive resistance to moisture. Furniture made of this material has a variety of advantages: damage-resistant, heat and flame resistant, holds colour, hygienic, and ecological. Paper Stone is an ideal combination of materials and designs of the modern generation. Prostranstvo U – an interior design studio – recommends a façade and tabletop from this universal material to those who value a minimalistic and ecologicallyfriendly kitchen.

A HOME IN A DAY cement, and fibre. This secret material is called the “magical stone.” In order to create the different components of a house, Winsun first acquired a huge 3D printer. Then, they constructed the walls and frames with the printer spraying layer upon layer while moving throughout the interior.

Planning and constructing a home does not encompass anything unusual; however, creating a home in a mere 24 hours is truly unheard of and raises an interest.

Winsun worked for ten years to universalize their “ink” formula and the process of 3D printing. The construction that the printer creates is a light and ecologically-friendly interior. Using a 3D printer is a much easier method of building than using traditional materials. The company plans to construct approximately 100 centres all over China to collect materials for future projects.

REMARKABLE PAINTS for the Walls

Painting walls has always been a trend that offers a wide variety of options. Such a covering is very practical and easy to look after. Furthermore, you can easily change it whenever you wish; perhaps according to the seasons. There are several unusual types of wall paints that are able to bring zest to the interior and make it interesting.

FLUORESCENT PAINT Paint that shines in the dark will create a lasting impression on your guests. It can be applied to a variety of surfaces: glass, cement, fabric, and even metal. There are colourful options that are visible throughout the day and transparent paints that are invisible in the light. With the help of this technique, you can create the effect of the night sky on the ceiling, create various illustrations on the walls, and highlight particular zones in the interior. Fluorescent paints do not spoil and do not harm your health. They do not contain any radioactive elements. The only requirement is a periodical charge from light; therefore, it is best to have some sort of lighting source near the walls whether it is sconces or neon lighting.

SLATE PAINT If there are children in the home, they will no doubt enjoy a wall on which they can draw with chalk. To create it, you will need slate paint. It does not have a specific smell, is easy to apply to any surface including furniture and appliances , and dries relatively quickly. Slate paint should be used in fragments with a portion of the wall designated for this paint. For example, this can be one wall in the bedroom, the façade of kitchen furniture, or the bottom half of the wall in

the children’s room. This is because this paint has a distinctive black, or sometimes green colour.

MARKER PAINT One of greatest advantages of marker paint is that is does not collect dust. It does not cause allergies and ideally fits into the interior of the children’s room. This paint can be applied to wood, drywall, plywood, metal, and plaster. In addition, it has a wide range of colour choice. Currently on the market there are more than ten colours as well as a colourless option. The only drawback is that this paint takes about a week to dry; however, once ready, you can draw on it with markers and erase all you want! This will allow you to constantly change the interior while developing artistic abilities in your child.

MAGNETIC PAINT Magnetic paint is made of small metallic parts that are able to act as magnets. It is recommended to apply a thin layer of this paint. Since magnetic paint does not have a large variety of colours, it can be covered with any other type of paint. For example, it can be layered with marker or slate paint. Now you will be able to not only draw on the walls, but also attach a magnetic family photo.

Another option for a fake window in the interior is to frame it in polyurethane moulding which you can paint in any colour. Like in the previous scenario, the first step is to attach an image. Next, apply the moulding along the perimeter. You have the option of making a binding but this requires thin threads of fabric. The dignity of these simple windows is the ease with which they can be assembled whereas the drawbacks are that it is impossible to light the window from the outside or create slopes to make it seem as close to a realistic window as possible. Be prepared for this window to look effective; however, the chance of your guests thinking it is a real window is very low.

A DRAWN REALITY

FAKE WINDOW:

Currently, a very popular option is to fully draw the fake window: the view, frame, shelf, and even curtains. Often, a usual approach is used; for example, one curtain is drawn but the other is real. Such windows look original but are able to be created only using professional artistic abilities. If you do not possess such abilities, it is better to avoid the risk and seek advice from an artistic decorator.

LIES FOR BEAUTY’S SAKE

Today, to create a unique interior, designers are even ready to lie – in this case, this is the optimal decision. We are talking about fake constructions which grow more popular every day in the industry of modern design. One of the most commonly used options is an imitation of a window in the interior. TYPES OF FAKE WINDOWS Several methods can be used to create fake windows: from simple to complex,

demanding planning, preparations, and professional experience. Regardless of the method you will use, the first step is to decide on the type of window. For this step, you can use a poster or photograph of a window and attach it to the wall. If you have artistic abilities, you can even draw the window. After the chosen image is dry, add a frame which is securely attached with a dowel. That is all; the original window is complete. For the creation of a realistic effect, you can create a shelf underneath the window on which you can place flowers and add curtains. Furthermore, you can attach Plexiglas to the frame to make the result even more realistic.

The seasons are changing and soon, it will be time to start focusing on the exterior of our homes. Curb appeal is a huge selling feature; undeniably, there is a lingering pride of ownership when a homeowner pulls up to a polished and updated home. Whether you acquired an older home or you have been living in your own home and are finding that the exterior façade looks dated, there is still hope! Exterior makeovers are often associated with having a big price tag and a lengthy and messy renovation process. However, adding value and a whole lot of style to your home does not have to be so invasive. Most people will look at their exterior façade and simply because they no longer like the colors of their exterior, they will explore expensive material options to update their home. This type of investment may not be worthwhile if those exterior materials are still in good condition. As a designer, I often find that my clients bring me on board to discuss the interior but eventually we end up outside thinking how to make the exterior of their home a little more appealing. After discovering Spray-Net (spray-net.com), I realized that spending money on replacing brick, vinyl/ aluminum siding and other exterior finishes is simply not worth it, especially with the ever changing trends. You can update your home with a permanent paint solution that allows you to spray brick, stone or vinyl siding with a specially formulated paint that guarantees no peeling and chipping for 10-25 years.

You can update the exterior of your home in just one day! And while it may be quick and simple, it should not be mistaken as a patch solution. It is a great quality product that is backed with a full guarantee. Being up to date and current with the exterior of your home will add value to your property. If you have taken the time to update your interiors, you must also follow suit with the outdoors. All in all, you want a home that you can love inside and out. The most fabulous part is that professional painting does not just end at your main exterior finishes. It can also be applied to vinyl or aluminum windows, the front door and the garage door. With all of these options, the possibilities are endless and the results are magnificent. You will have a like-new home that will have your whole neighborhood buzzing.

EXTRA TIPS:

1 2 3

Update the house numbers to a font that suits the architectural style of your home; make sure that the numbers are large and visible. A pair of planters to anchor your front door adds life to your exteriors; you can fill these with inexpensive greens or seasonal branches and décor. If your exterior lacks color, plant some inexpensive flowers in a few vivid tones, anything from yellow or fuchsia can truly add a splash of charm.

4

Update your exterior light fixtures, dated and rusted fixtures give away the age of your home. Fresh lights that run on LED can be more cost efficient and appealing.

5

Do not forget to update your mailbox; it too is like a piece of jewellery that helps accessorize the outfit.

HOME-STAGING: The Secrets of Quick Sales Hello, my name is Natalia Slobidker. I am a professional realtor, interior designer and certified specialist of home-staging. This discussion will focus on the latter of those three. Home-staging is the professional preparation of real estate for sale. The sweet spot between consumer psychology, interior design and the mastery of the art of real estate is much like a science of its own. The goal of staging is to sell your real estate while maximizing the speed of the sale and the price with a minimal amount of time, money and effort spent. For starters, here are some statistics: in 2012, RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) inspected 89 houses which, on average, lasted 166 days on the market until the owners despaired and called a professional home stager. On average, these houses were sold 32 days after they were professionally prepared – that is 81% less time spent on the market!!!

interior comfortable for you and your loved ones. This interior may be cozy and of top quality but for one reason or another, potential buyers do not feel the urge to snatch up the offer.

But there are also common rules for any region, so let me start with those.

which you live and a house which you sell are two separate houses. Throughout my entire career, only once did I encounter a house that could be put up on the market without changing a thing. The woman who lived there was an artist and interior designer without sentiment towards objects (read: passion to piling mounds of useless things which clutter my and your homes alike).

The sale of a house and the following move is a great reason to go through everything that has piled up and either throw away, donate or gift the things you have been keeping “just in case”. If the year had not presented such a case thus far, then it is likely that you do not actually need the item.

THE FIRST AND KEY RULE I always tell my clients that a house in IS TO DECLUTTER.

In all other cases, the houses or apartments needed to be adjusted to an idealized standard for the typical buyer in the region where it is being sold. Naturally, it is necessary to consider the specifics of the region. Home-staging for a downtown condominium will differ greatly from home-staging in Woodbridge, which, in turn, will differ from Markham.

If it is hard to part with acquired items anyway, then pack them into boxes and put them in storage if you have space. If not, then it would be reasonable to rent a storage space for the time being that you are selling. It is cheap and extremely effective. A home with fewer items looks more spacious; the space makes it easier to breathe freely and so, naturally, a potential buyer is more likely to appreciate it. DINING ROOM IN USE

Nine of them were sold with multiple offers pending. Can you guess why? Maurice’s firm’s inspection revealed that almost 60% of buyers make their decision after having only considered ten homes. A correctly presented home makes it to the potential buyer’s list, thereby increasing its chances of sales. The same inspection claims that almost 80% of people are ready to pay more for a home where they can just move in without doing anything. This is the so-called move-in-ready house. A professional home stager will help you attain this too. So then, what is the mystery of this beast called home-staging? The need often comes up to sell your house or apartment where you had created the

GO GREEN! SIMPLE RULES OF AN ECOLOGICALLYFRIENDLY LIFESTYLE Anyone can take on the responsibility of contributing to the creation of an ecologicallyfriendly planet. While scientists, governments, and corporations search for a global solution, we can choose a tactic of taking small steps and transforming our daily lives into a new level of responsibility. Everything is practical and clear. Furthermore, leading an ecologicallyfriendly lifestyle will conserve your money, as illustrated below.

1

ADDING GREENERY TO YOUR PROPERTY

First of all, greenery is beautiful and beneficial. By incorporating trees on your property, you can create a carcass for snow banks which will protect your home from the winter winds and will create a microclimate even in a confined space. In the summer, the greenery will protect the home from excessive sun exposure and will prevent you from exploiting the air conditioner.

22

2

TURNING OFF DEVICES

Besides ecological and safety benefits, turning off devices such as kitchen appliances, chargers, and mobile phones when you are not using them prolongs their lifetime. Develop a habit in yourself and your family to unplug gadgets that you do not plan to use anytime soon.

3

INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULBS

If you need to light the home specifically with a warm yellow colour, you can find this option in the assortment of ecologically-friendly light bulbs. In fact, you can find just about any colour in this assortment. Statistics for the past ten years show that modern light bulbs truly help conserve sufficiently.

4

DECREASING THE AMOUNT OF HOME APPLIANCES

Of course, this should not be done to the point of fanaticism. Returning to last century’s lifestyle is not what is encouraged here. However, if you have little children, curious pets, or family members with allergies, then you will need to decrease the amount of harsh cleaners. Natural sub-

CLOSING HOLES

Thankfully, Canada does not have major issues with sorting and displacing garbage properly. We are equipped with all necessities to enable us to become active participants of making this country ecological for ourselves and our future generations. All we need to do is throw our garbage in the proper bins.

For one person, an item may seem garbage but for someone else it can be treasure. The golden rule does in fact work if we have no prejudices against used objects.

Carefully examine your home for sources of unwanted breeze. The warmth needed during winter and the coolness needed during summer can easily escape your home through small cracks. One simple check can save you from discomfort and excess spending.

In the workplace, sachets equipped with the right oils will help you to be productive and concentrated for a prolonged period of time. In the living room, the sachet will become a perfect accessory for family relaxation or romantic dates. Aromatic sachets can also become a perfect gift, especially when they are handmade. If you attach ribbons or loops to the sachets, you can hang them on hangers, shelves, door handles, and on wardrobes. Although superstitions may seem forgotten, the sachet is known to protect the home from negative energy and evil intentions. Regarding filling the sachet, the most common ingredients are lavender, lemon balm and thyme as well as spices such as oregano, basil, and dill. Coffee, dried peels of citrus fruits, spices, aromatic tea, dried herbs and flowers, and pine are all options for the sachet, each with its own effect on one’s emotional state.

S I T A H W ? T E H C A AS A sachet is a packet filled with aromatic and ecological ingredients such as twigs, petals, grasses, spices, and pine needles. This is one of the most ancient methods of aromatherapy that remains popular and practical today. With the help of sachets, it is easy to fill the home or favourite clothes with a magical fragrance. At one point, this was considered a necessary attribute of the home of every lady. In order for the dry flowers and other natural materials to give off an aromatic fragrance for longer, add ethereal oils to the sachet. Besides providing an appealing aroma, they will be able to change

For the children’s room, the mixture of lavender, lemon, and rose oils is best. For the bedroom, a mixture of rose and lavender is effective; for the living room – lavender, lemon, and rose. If you plan to use a sachet in the car, try a mixture of mint and pine. Do you want to obtain a specific therapeutic effect? Choose ethereal oils according to symptoms and field of attention.

the emotional background and help prevent diseases.

HOW CAN A SACHET BE USED? Most commonly, sachets are used to bring an aroma to closets of clothes, bed sheets, and other such items. You can use a simple packet or methodically decorate the sachet to become a true highlight of the room. When displayed in a basket or on a shelf, they will attract the eye and will absorb the interior with a pleasant fragrance. If using the sachet as an item of décor, consider placing it beside the bed. It will help you to relax and sleep well.

opens a door to a wide range of experiments. In fact, you can buy the fabric, choose the layout, and proceed to create the artwork with your family or friends. - With time, you can easily change the position of the paintings, add new frames or redecorate existing ones, add accessories to the composition, or remove certain aspects. Overall, this experience will definitely be far from boring.

THE RULES OF CHOOSING The painting and its frame have to cooperate in terms of colour with other elements in the interior such as curtains, couches, floor, and walls. In order to avoid the composition seeming obtrusive, refrain from choosing very bright artworks.

DECORATING WALLS

with Paintings: Layout Options for All Life Situations Did you notice that if an interior does not have zest that catches your eye, it becomes boring and plain? Perhaps the easiest and most accessible method to rid your interior of emptiness is to use paintings as wall décor. This option is suitable for those who do not plan to engage in capital renovations and serious alterations in the interior but still desire change.

made works cannot be cheap but replicas will be affordable for everyone. After all, nobody is demanding specifically paintings. You can also incorporate herbarium, photos, abstractions, or everything at once. It all depends on your taste and the interior that you plan to decorate. - An easy and realistic option. You can use the traditional approach and hang the painting on nails, or you can simply attach it with ribbons or even place it on a shelf. These options are only suitable in the case that the image is not heavy.

There are several arguments that favour décor specifically with paintings:

- Adaptable to any interior. If you move or have renovations, it is unnecessary to change the picture as well. It is sufficient to change the colour and style of the frame.

- A relatively small cost and a wide range of choice. Of course, real hand-

- An opportunity for art and self-realization. Decorating walls with paintings

To create an effective composition, it is best to base it on a specific theme or colour scheme. For example, black and white sceneries, flower themes, watercolour still life, and so on.

LAYOUT OPTIONS The most important rule: less is better than more. Surely, you do not want to live in a national gallery, so be careful when choosing a layout for the paintings. Remember that you want to pleasantly decorate the interior without making it excessive and cluttered. Ensure that you do not place the images too low or too high. The centre of the painting should be where the centre of the wall is according to height. In addition, avoid placing paintings too close to other objects in the interior.

PAINTINGS CAN BE PLACED: • in a row horizontally or vertically • symmetrically or asymmetrically • individually or in groups A group of paintings can be assembled into a geometric figure such as a square or chaotically. The first option is suitable for strict and classical interiors whereas the second option is best for modern and youthful interiors. Decorating walls with paintings is one of the first traditional methods of formulating the interior. Due to its simplicity and unlimited options, this method will likely remain a popular choice for a very long time.
