Color me happy use color to impact the mood of your interior

Home decor is often viewed as simply a matter of aesthetics ‌ what looks attractive. But proponents of color psychology believe that the colors you use to decorate your home can have a profound effect on the emotional well-being of you and your family. If you like the idea of using color to create an emotionally healthy home, you should first consider the primary function of each room. Here are some colors and how can affect our mood and tips on how well can it be used.


Red is a powerful color. It referred to the fire and heat. It embodies physical strength and energy. It is known to increase blood pressure and heart beat. Its stimulating effect is good and friendly in places where there are many activities such as kitchen, dining room or playroom, Although rarely used in bedrooms, touches of red can create a conducive atmosphere to passion. However, be careful not to abuse, its presence can become tiring in the long run and cause irritability. To enjoy its benefits, use in accent color

Blue evokes the cold and creates a feeling of calm and serenity. Located opposite the red in the color wheel, it also creates the opposite effect. It promotes relaxation and provides a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. It embodies the spirit, intelligence, logic and thinking. Blue is the ideal color for bedrooms and bathrooms. However, because of its sedative effect that could have a negative influence on appetite, it is preferable not to be used in kitchens and dining.


Yellow is probably the most cheerful of the color wheel. It evokes optimism, self-confidence and emotional strength. It elevates the mind and stimulates creativity. It increases memory and promotes decision. For all these reasons, yellow can be used almost anywhere: kitchen, dining room, living room, entrance hall or office. But beware: used too much, it can create anxiety. It is best to avoid it for the bedroom or to calm it with a soothing color like blue.

Green is the symbol of harmony, balance, healing and rest. It recalls the colors of nature and creates a relaxing environment. According to its shade, green can be hot or cold and can be easily combined with many colors. It is particularly popular in bedrooms and bathrooms because of its calming properties, but it may be appropriate for other parts of the house.


Purple represents spirituality, intuition and artistic creativity. It is often associated with wealth and luxury, but its effect internalizing promotes meditation and contemplation. Dark purple shades are generally used in accent while lighter shades like lilac, well suited for

rooms. Excessive use may make a stuffy room though ,and a bad combination with certain colors can create a boring atmosphere.


Orange stimulating, refreshing, sensual, or-ange gives a sense of security and abun-dance. It works on both physical and mental: it aids digestion, strengthens the immune sys-tem and fights depression. Friendly, orange promotes human relationships and evokes pleasure. It is particularly suited to busy areas such as the lobby, game room, kitchen and dining room, but it can have a stressful effect in the bedroom, if is used in excess

So, now that you know what different colors do and the feelings they generate and nurture, you can plan how to decorate and color your house and influence your life. However remember, the use of colors is not clear cut and there are numerous blends and mixing techniques that you could apply to come out with that perfect combination that you want. If you are sure what you want to do, just go for it and do it‌. but if you are not and need some advice, ideas and help, then talk to us, we will be delighted to assist you!

atumishi Housing Company (WHC) is a public entity responsible for real estate development and a fund manager established in 2013.

The company is the main implementer of the Tanzania Public Servant Housing Scheme tasked with building of 50,000 houses that will be sold under mortgage arrangements to public servants across Tanzania. As a fund manager, WHC is responsible for overseeing investments in real estate by way of managing Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). It is estimated that there 650,000 public servants working in the public sector of Tanzania out of which only 10,000 or less than 2% have been provided with residential accommodation through leasing or house purchase scheme.

The existing housing backlog which is now estimated at 3 million housing units and is growing at 200,000 units annually means new delivery methodologies are needed to bridge the gap. It is from this understanding that seven public institutions have joined hands to speed up the provision of massive quality homes to public servants. These institutions include PPF Pensions Funds, National Social Security Fund (NSSF), Public Service Pension Fund (PSPF), LAPF Pensions Fund (LAPF), Government Employee Provident Fund (GEPF), National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) as well as National Housing Corporation (NHC).

The shortage of housing units in the market has pushed both residential as well commercial properties on the higher side. However, this trend is likely to be reversed in the near future as new developers enter the market to increase the supply. All is now set for Watumishi Housing to start construction of houses commencing from September 2014. The housing scheme will be implemented under five phases countrywide where 50,000 houses are expected to be constructed and sold to public servants. Houses will be sold under mortgage arrangements with tenure of up to 25 years. Some of the specials features of houses sold under this scheme that enhances the affordability include:

May 2014 - Issue No. 31


• No requirement for deposit from the house buyer • Affordable interest rate which i.e between 1113% only. • Ability to defer payments and pay some amount at the end using your pension (balloon payment). • Longer period to repay of up to 25 years. There will be options for those who want to repay earlier than that. Phase one of the project will entail construction of houses in Dar-es-salaam, Coast Region, Tanga, Arusha, Mwanza, Shinyanga, Mtwara, Lindi, Tabora, Dodoma,

Morogoro, Kilimanjaro, Ruvuma na Mbeya. There are a variey of house designs and sizes that fit with Tanzanian culture and lifestyles. As Watumishi Housing enters the real estate market, more vibrancy is expected in the housing market. Newly recruited young graduates will now be able to own houses immediately without having to wait for many years to build houses on their own. Public servants are advised to be ready to take this opportunity by ensuring that they do not take loans other loans such that they salaries qualify for mortgage deductions when they apply for housing loans.

What is the right rent for your house or apartment? “In an ideal world, the right rent for your property would be the amount that would make you the most money. Unfortunately, in the actual world of competitive real estate, tenants have the freedom to choose from many different properties, so you have to set your rent accordingly”

By Emillian Rwejuna

Many have been asking themselves “What is the right rent for my house or apartment?” It is unfortunate that there are no bases from which to establish the right figure. Nonetheless, some have been and still using unrealistic grounds to come up with the rent figures such as the cost of the building, quality of the building, location, neighborhood and more worse hear says. Some get it right while majority get it wrong!.

So what are the best guidance to come up with the realistic figures that will give the landlords optimal revenue and constant cash flow? Let’s first consider the following statement. “Pricing your rental house/apartment is one of the more important tasks you’ll face as a landlord. Getting top dollar for your rental is important when it comes

to meeting your financial goals. However, if you set the rent too high, you’ll likely have to wait longer-than-average to get a tenant and you may also face high turnover rates as tenants seek more budget-friendly options”. The simple and easy source of guidance is seeking advises from professional real estate agents

or property manager (NOT DALALIs). They often have deep insight into specific rental markets and know how a given house/apartment stacks up compared to others with similar features in the same area. Whether you use a professional rental agent or go the Do It Yourself (DIY) route, you’ll need to know how to compare your property to others on the market in order to set the right price. Here are some guidance to take into account when determining how much rent to charge. 1. Location and nearby amenities For obvious reasons, the location of your house/ apartment is one of the main determining factors in how much rent you can charge. The more sought-after the neighborhood where your house/apartment is located, the more rent you can charge. While every desirable neighborhood has a unique mix of characteristics that make it a prime location, here are a few things that great neighborhoods tend to have: • • • • • • • •

Close proximity to working places and offices Good schools Nearby shopping and restaurants Nearby recreation places Secured with no or minimal records of crimes Good roads (Passable throughout the year) Nicely maintained houses and landscaping Overall charm

2. Main features When pricing your house/apartment, you should consider the most basic aspects of the property such as: • Bedrooms and bathrooms: The number of bedrooms and bathrooms your house/apartment has fundamentally affects how many people it can accommodate and how comfortable they will be. • Size and shape of the house/apartment: There can be vast differences between houses/apartments with the same number of bedrooms and bathrooms. A 120 square metres two-bedroom, two-bath house/apartment is not the same as a 300 square metres house/apartment with additional storage space. Likewise, the attractiveness and practicality of your house/ apartment’s floor plan will come into play when it comes to how much rent you can charge. • Overall condition of the home: The closer your house/apartment is to new condition, the more you can charge. 3. Finish levels The relative level of luxury your house/apartment offers will also impact the amount of rent

you can charge. Most tenants expect “standard” houses/apartments to be well-kept, with reasonably up to date interior finishing. If your house/ apartment features tiles and cabinetry from the 1980s, you’ll probably need to charge a bit less than the average going rate for a comparable space. On the flip side, if your house/apartment is full of trendy upgrades, you may be able to command a higher than average rent price. Here are some features that may allow you to charge premium rent, especially if you offer four or five of these items. • Wood and/or tile floors • Quality furnishing and fixtures • Quality kitchen finishing with granite counter tops • Dishwasher and garbage disposal • In-house laundry • Spacious closets • Energy efficient windows • Ample parking space • Swimming pool • Security

Professional management Keep in mind that using a property management company is not only a major convenience for you, it adds significant peace of mind for your tenants, as well. Renters are likely to pay more when they know that any issues that arise will be dealt with promptly and fairly by a dedicated professional manager.
