How Can Paint Transform a Space
Color is one of the main players in establishing mood in any room. Walls tend to take up the largest amount of visual space, therefore any change on them leaves a big impact. Here are some tips for using paint to refresh your home:
MOODY HUES: Paint color can be employed to energize, relax, inspire, motivate and more. Pops of high chroma color can enliven both our spirits and our living spaces. Switching from a warm hue to a cool one, or a pale color to bold instantly changes the mood. In general, cooler colors bring a fresh and invigorating sensation to a space where warm colors cocoon and feel cozy.
UPCYCLE: Furniture is a perfect place to express creativity and infuse color into a room. Instead of replacing wooden furniture, consider a refresh with paint. From chairs to dressers, you can easily update furniture for a fresh new look.
COLOR BLOCK: Try painting an accent color in an unexpected place like a ceiling, stair riser, or the back of a display cabinet to bring color inspired joy, energy and whimsy to your interior. Go bold or start small with a washroom or simply paint a color block behind artwork or in place of a bedroom headboard.
FINISH FIRST: When refreshing your home with paint, choosing the perfect color is not the only consideration. Selecting a paint finish that complements the aesthetic look and the functionality of the space is just as important. The most popular paint finish for walls traditionally is an eggshell finish. It’s subtle sheen wears well. Recently matte finishes have increased in popularity and are a designer favorite. Matte does not reflect light so it offers excellent coverage to hide small imperfections.

There are Great Options for Window Treatments
Provided by Budget Blinds
Get inspired and surround yourself with today’s most beautiful and popular design trends for your windows. Regardless of your decorating style, it helps to understand the vast array of window treatments available and their functions, and how they help create a look that reflects your personal style. When choosing window treatments, consider the many benefits, such as privacy, light control, UV protection, energy efficiency, and child safety
Their clean line design works with any style room; mount them alone or pair them with drapery panels. Wood blinds add warmth, character, and dimension, while providing privacy and light control. If the look of wood is desired, but humidity is a concern, composite or faux wood blinds are a good alternative.
Shutters may be the most timeless and versatile window coverings and always make a statement. They are like custom made furniture for your windows. They are perfect for a sunny bedroom, look crisp in a kitchen, or can add drama to a den. Also, shutters work well in either classic or modern rooms, are available in a wide assortment of colors, frames, and louver size. They can even be made to fit unusual shaped windows, such as arches, angles, and octagons. French door cutouts are available in several styles.
Shades provide the largest variety of color, style, and function. Some types are:
• Roller Shades - today’s roller shades are not like your grandmother’s. Like a favorite “little black dress,” roller shades are a classic that complement any décor. Designer inspired fabrics work with any décor and look great layered with draperies.
• Woven Wood Shades - made from eco-friendly organic materials. The shades add a new level of softness and natural beauty. The texture of these layered with drapery panels will create a warm, elegant look.
• Solar Shades – are perfect for patios and sunrooms. They deflect the sun’s rays providing UV protection for your furnishings and help cool the room, reducing energy costs.

76 MARCH 2023 HOME FINDER’S GUIDE
I AM REAL ESTATE
I am the basis of all wealth, the heritage of the wise, the thrifty and prudent.
I am the poor man’s joy and comfort, the rich man’s prize, the right hand of capital, the silent partner of many thousands of successful men.
I am the solace of the widow, the comfort of old age, the cornerstone of security against misfortune and want. I am handed down to children through generations as a thing of greatest worth.
I am the choicest fruit of toil. Credit respects me, yet I am humble. I stand before every man bidding him know me for what I am and possess me.
I am growing in value through countless days. Though I seem dormant, my worth increases, never failing, never ceasing. Time is my aid and population heaps up my gain. Fire and the elements I defy, for they cannot destroy me.
I am trustworthy. I am sound. The thriftless speak ill of me. The charlatans of finance attack me. Unfailingly I triumph and detractors are disproved.
I am producer of food, the basis for ships and factories, the foundations of banks. Minerals and oils come from me.
I am so common that thousands, unthinkingly and unknowingly, pass me by.
I am increasing in strength. The centuries find me younger. My possessors learn to believe in me, invariably they become envied. While all things wither and decay. I survive.
