Try simple summer spruce-ups Article Resource Association

Summer is already in full swing, and the guests are lining up for weekend brunches, pool parties, backyard barbecues and sophisticated dinners. If you’re feeling the urge to spruce up your home for summer entertaining, you can make a big impact on a modest budget with some simple steps. You can refresh your home’s look by investing in four easy areas – floors, walls, lighting and accents. Whether it’s getting your carpets cleaned or adding a striking area rug, switching out tired table lamps or adding a fresh coat of paint, it’s easy to make eye-catching changes with a weekend’s worth of work.

Fabulous Floors Freshening floors doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming

task. Carpets will benefit from a simple deep cleaning – something you should be doing seasonally to preserve their beauty and extend their usable lives. For tile, stone or hardwoods, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning and maintenance. Another great way to dress up floors is to add a splash of color with an area rug. “An area rug is a great decorating tool that can act as an accent to your decor and serve a practical purpose as well if you’re looking to cost-effectively conceal a flaw, like a worn or stained spot,” says Dan Auer of Decorative Product Services, a company that specializes in home design products.

No Wall Flowers Walls are the largest space element

in your room decor, and brightening them for the season can be as easy as switching out the artwork or adding a fresh coat of paint. Start with a neutral wall shade and add color with wall art that fits your mood, taste and the season. Summer is also a great time to add a decorative mirror, since drapes and windows are often open to welcome in the sunlight and bright sky. Adding a mirror on the wall opposite a window is a great way to reflect sunlight throughout the room and make a small space appear more expansive.

Lighten Up While you’re reveling in the natural light of summer, don’t overlook the importance of using light to create a mood for warm weather evenings. Lighting is an essential element that

contributes to how your home looks and feels, and the light entering from outdoors changes with the season and time of day. With longer days and more sun in summer, you may find you need synthetic light less for visibility and more for ambiance. Summer is a great time to add dimmers to a dining room or bedroom or add an eye-catching overhead fixture.

Outdoor Lifestyle Don’t forget that the same design principals you use to create a wonderful indoor environment can apply outdoors, as well. Update your outdoor spaces with area rugs designed for beauty and durability. Add accent lighting such as energy-efficient solar lights to set the mood for evening and night gatherings.

‘Green’ equals green with ceramic tile Article Resource Association

For homeowners, good news has been hard to come by in this bleak economy. So it may come as a happy surprise to many to learn that the two most compelling trends in home remodeling and maintenance – pinching pennies and going green – are quite compatible with each other. Choosing high performance and low lifecycle-cost products – ones that require little to no maintenance or replacement – for your remodeling project

means that throughout the usable life of the product, you will pay little more than the cost of the initial investment. Selecting quality products that are durable and will not need replacement within the life of the structure not only saves money, it helps the environment. It substantially reduces the amount of raw materials used and lowers the amount of emissions and waste produced in manufacturing, transportation and installation. Some traditional and timeless prod-

ucts, like ceramic tile, are a perfect fit for today’s eco- and economy-conscious homeowners. Highly versatile and durable, ceramic tile blends contemporary design with sustainable living.

Reduce Your Utility Bill Using materials that reduce energy consumption maximizes energy efficiency and saves you money on utility bills. Ceramic tile boasts high thermalstorage capacity which means it retains heat and emits it slowly, which is great for homes located in climates where days are warm and nights turn cool. Superior Longevity Ceramic tile is in it for the long haul, offering supreme durability and a longer lifespan than most floor and wall coverings. Wood often requires refinishing and is easily damaged in high traffic areas. Carpeting loses its pile, shows wear and emits gases, sending harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air. Ceramic tile, however, lasts up to four times longer. Design-wise, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics just to get the stuff that lasts. Advanced technology has allowed manufacturers to replicate surfaces virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. With modern ceramic tile, homeowners can achieve the look of wallpaper, wood, stone and textiles but retain the longevity and benefits of tile.

The Jungle series from Tile of Spain branded manufacturer Ceramicas Aparici becomes a tribute to nature by visually mimicking real wood planks in an 8.9-by-35.4 inch format, shown here in Maple. (ARA)

Low Maintenance Bills When it comes to maintaining your ceramic tile floor or wall covering, your design choice won’t impact the environ-

The Lounge Series from Tile of Spain branded manufacturer Inalco, creates the appearance of antique wainscoting but offers the easy, low-cost maintenance and durability of ceramic tile, available in an 18-by-26 inch format. (ARA)

ment but will save you cash. Cleaning ceramic tile requires no harsh or expensive cleaning chemicals, shampoos or other solvents that could be flushed into the ecosystem. Neutral cleansers and water are the only cleaning products required. By using ceramic tile, designers and homeowners can also ensure good indoor air quality. Tile repels allergens and will not absorb odors such as smoke and paint fumes or release harmful gases, toxic byproducts or VOCs. To learn more about how ceramic tile can positively affect the environment and your monthly budget, call 305-446-4387 or visit www.spaintiles.info.

Home Garden

Fine Design Improving your yard with hardscaping Family Features

Landscaping not only makes your home more beautiful it can also make it more valuable. In fact, a Michigan State University study found that, depending on where the house is located, high-quality landscaping adds between five and 11 percent to its price. However, good landscaping is about more than just plants. Paths, benches, walls, water features – they’re all part of hardscaping and can make or break the look of your yard and garden landscape. In the competitive housing market, every feature of a home is crucial in attracting potential buyers. The home’s exterior makes the first impression, and hardscapes, as important elements of landscaping, play a critical role gaining a return on value. Along with helping a property stand out in buyers’ minds, a carefully thought-out landscape using hardscapes allows homeowners to express their creativity and personality through the variety of options.

Create Your Own Path A well-made concrete walkway or garden path not only stands up to years of hard use, it enhances the natural landscape and complements a home’s exterior features.

1&2

Traditional walkway materials such as brick and stone can be pricey and often difficult to install. As an easy and inexpensive alternative, you can build a new concrete path using manufactured molds, such as the Quikrete WalkMaker building forms. The result is a beautiful pathway that mirrors the texture and appearance of brick or natural stone with all the durability and economy of poured concrete.

Easy Ways to Add Extra Appeal For other ways to add interest to your home’s exterior, think about incorporating hardscaping elements such as stone, rock and sand in your yard and garden landscape. They’re available in an almost limitless range of colors, sizes and textures. • For a natural look, create a pathway out of decorative pebbles and walks. They take on a whole new beauty when they get wet, either from the rain or a nearby water feature. • Create a rock garden with different types of gravel, pebble and stone arrangements. Add a few foliage plants and a small water feature for interest. • Give an overlooked area definition with crisp white marble chips or all-purpose stone and flowers in brightly colored planters.

Project how-to

Step 1 and 2

Step 4

Here is a simple, step-by-step process for making your own beautiful pathway. This is a weekend project one person can easily complete for a minimal cost. Typically, the cost to install a 10-foot-long concrete path is about $50 to $60 for materials.

Prepare the project site by leveling the ground, removing sod or soil as needed. Mix a batch of concrete for the first section, following the product directions. Place the form at the start of your path and level it. Use a shovel or trowel to fill each cavity of the mold with wet concrete. Consolidate and smooth the surface of the form using a concrete margin trowel.

Repeat until the path is finished. With a variety of form patterns available (Basket Weave Brick, European Block Brick, Country Stone and Running Bond Brick), you can create a pathway, patio or walkway that matches your home’s style. When you’re finished, damp cure concrete by spraying periodically with a fine water mister or cover with plastic sheeting for five to seven days. Curing concrete is a process that maintains ideal moisture and temperature conditions so that the concrete will be durable, stable and watertight. Allow 24 hours before foot traffic.

Materials concrete mix or crack-resistant concrete mix liquid cement color polymer-modified jointing sand (optional)

Tools excavation and site preparation tools building form wheelbarrow or mixing box shovel level margin trowel or finishing trowel

Step 3 Promptly remove the form and then smooth the edges of the section with a trowel to create the desired finish (it may help to wet the trowel in water). For a nonslip surface, broom the section or brush it with a stiff brush. Rotate the form one-quarter turn (90 degrees) with each section to vary the pattern. Place the form against the finished section and repeat steps 2 and 3 to complete the next section.

Add depth with decorative finishes

Valuing a samovar

Transform flat, dull walls into interesting and personal spaces with subtle or dramatic visual texture and broken color. Burnished mineral/metal finishes and layered colored glazes add depth. Some examples of softly reflective metals are mica, copper, pewter, bronze and, of course, antiqued silver and gold.

By Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson Scripps Howard News Service

Dear Helaine and Joe: My grandmother purchased this samovar in 1967 when she was in Iran. I am interested to know its origins, age and value. Thank you, G.J. Dear G.J.: In Russian, the word samovar means self-boiler or self-brewer, and these devices are almost symbols of Russia in the minds of many Europeans and Americans. In fact, these utilitarian objects are so iconic that they were depicted on Russian postage stamps in the late 1980s. Samovars are heavy metal containers used to heat and boil water that is most commonly used for making tea. These are generally crafted out of copper, brass, bronze, tin, nickel , and on rare occasions silver and gold. The samovar as we know it was first made in the late 18th century, and the center of production was the town of Tula, which was the center of the Russian arms-manufacturing industry. To have any monetary value whatso-

Special Feature

Greening Your Interior By Brittany Sovine Longmont Times-Call

It’s no surprise, today, you can find a ‘green’ alternative to just about everything. Interior design has even been greened by alternative methods to traditional practices like flooring, window treatments, artwork and furniture. Learning to reuse, recycle and repurpose is the single most important thing to incorporate into interior design. When choosing new materials, it’s all about low volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Advances in technology have lead to new designs for more efficient flooring with better quality than the traditional wood, tile or linoleum products. Bamboo comes in many different colors and patterns that allow for creative flexibility. “Every time you look at your bamboo floor you know you’ve saved some trees,” says Boulder interior designer Margie Shore. Most large trees such as oak or pine take 30 to 40 years to replace, but bamboo can replace itself in just six to eight years. Pair a bamboo floor with a bamboo centerpiece to carry a natural flow into other rooms of a house. Wool is nature’s most efficient insulator so why not use it for carpet? The design of Nylon carpet has also changed to allow for recycling. “Anything we can do to keep stuff out of landfills,” says Shore. Other new carpets are being made from recycled materials such as pop bottles and natural ingredients like corn oil. Kitchen design has also taken on a greener face. “Wood, by nature, is eco-friendly,” Shore says. Repurposing kitchen cabinets or using reclaimed wood to make new ones can be refreshing and

sustainable. Innovations in tile using recycled glass make it no longer a luxury for the wealthy, but affordable and environmentally friendly. Furniture has also taken a big step in structure. Wood dressers can be repurposed and transformed into a bathroom sink. “Think outside the box when repurposing furniture,” Shore says. The use of recycled foam has been one of the sustainable practices adopted by furniture companies. Joyful Furniture on Pearl Street in Boulder offers affordable, ecofriendly furniture and refinishing services. “We scoop up outdated items that would be thrown away,” says Emily Wilson, coowner of Joyful Furniture. Their refinishing processes involves using water-based products and recycled paints and sealers in order to cut down on products ending up in the landfills. While their furniture pieces are mainly antique styles, they do have a few contemporary pieces with unique features. “All of this happens at our shop,” Wilson says. “We are saving carbon emissions by working locally so we don’t have to deal with shipping.” Natural fabrics such as linen, cotton and silk have low VOCs for window treatments or bedding. Old windows can be transformed into picture frames or painted pieces of artwork. The good news about green products is high demands have made products more affordable.

Outdoor watering tips Wild ways to get the maximum use of water in your gardening chores. • The Noodlehead sprinkler is a curious-looking watering device that allows you to water even the most irregularly shaped lawn or garden without wasting water. Just adjust the noodles in any number of different directions, or all in one direction. • Wish you had a sink outdoors? Now there’s an outdoor sink that firmly attaches to an exterior wall using supplied brackets. Then you just hook the hose up and you’ve got a fully functioning sink. • Need some power behind your water for serious washing? Try a pressurized washer. Gas-powered models are heavy and noisy, but the electric equivalent is lightweight and quiet. For safety’s sake, get a unit with a built-in GFCI, or ground fault circuit interrupter, which protects against accidental shock. Most power washers include adjustable wands and a detergent dispenser for jobs that require extra cleaning power. – HGTV

death your interest in the home would go to the heirs designated in your will. If you don’t have a will, it would go to your family members as dictated by the laws of your state. If your daughter is your only child and you are not married, it’s probable that your daughter would end up owning the entire property upon your death. Finally, if your daughter is looking to transfer the home to you with the hope that the transfer will remove her name from the obligation on the mortgage to the home, she’s wrong. The only way she will be able to remove her name from the debt obligation on your home will be to have the loan paid in full by either selling the home and paying off the debt or by refinancing the debt. If your daughter wants to buy her own home, she has probably realized that her debt-to-income ratio is impaired by the mortgage she co-signed for you. If you’ve kept good records of the fact that you have paid all of the bills relating to your home, that will help your daughter greatly. Any new lender will want to know that you had the funds to make all those payments and will need evidence that you actually made all of those payments. Before you change the title to your home, she and you should start by sitting down with a good mortgage lender to see how the mortgage on your home affects her credit and her ability to purchase property. Once you figure out that piece to the puzzle, you can decide how to move forward. Ilyce R.

Know your shears By Lee Reich The Associated Press

If you’re going to buy just one tool for pruning, make it a pair of handheld pruning shears. This is the tool you’ll use for pruning roses and for most cuts on fruit plants, houseplants, and young ornamental trees and bushes. Better quality pruning shears cost more and are well worth the extra money. But better quality can mean many things: a tool made from better materials; a tool designed to cut better under some circumstances; perhaps a tool that is more comfortable to use.

Shears’ Business End The business ends of pruning shears have either anvil or bypass blades. With anvil shears, a sharp blade comes down on the flat edge of an opposing blade. The flat edge is soft metal so as not to dull the opposing sharp edge. Bypass shears, in contrast, work more like scissors, with two sharp blades sliding past each other.

Anvil shears generally are cheaper than bypass shears, and the price difference is reflected in the resulting cut. Too often, anvil blades crush part of the stem at the end of the cut. And if the two blades do not mate perfectly, the resulting incomplete cut leaves the severed stem hanging by a thread of bark. That wide, flattened blade also makes it difficult to get the tool right up against the base of the stem to remove. Because a pair of hand shears is such a useful tool – one you might drop into your back pocket each time you walk out to the garden – check out weight, hand fit and balance before settling on one. Can the blades be removed for sharpening or replacement? A bypass pruner should have an adjustable tension screw so the blades can be made to close easily, yet be tight enough not to bind on a stem.

Size and Other Features Some shears are tailored to fit small hands or left hands. The blades of some

       

bypass shears are hooked at the end to help prevent a stem from slipping free of the jaws as you cut. Other shears achieve the same effect with a rolling action of one bypass blade along the other as the handle is squeezed. A ratcheting action makes it easier to slice through thick stems, but you do have to squeeze repeatedly for a single cut.

Care Give any pair of pruning shears care and it will give you years of service. Dirt can nick or dull sharp edges, so give the blades an occasional wipe with an oildabbed rag. Clean off sap with a rag dipped in a solvent such as kerosene. Periodically apply a few drops of oil to the bolt that joins the blades.

ing at a blinding pace. But if you’ve found a few, several methods for management are suggested. Clean up the garden to remove anything snails hide under, such as boards and debris. Sprinkle diatomaceous earth, sand or ashes around plants to provide a temporary barrier. Researchers report that traps with beer don’t provide good control like they do with the snails’ cousin, the slug. This makes sense; these snails are delicacies of French cuisine, any researcher worth their salt would’ve tried wine. Instead, lure snails into a collection corral by placing a board near damaged plants. Raise the board with four stones placed under each corner, making a cozy shelter for them to hide under. Check under the board in the morning and remove the snails. If you plan to eat the snails, be certain you’ve gotten them correctly identified before consuming – we have other, less damaging snails in the area. Before cooking, the snails must have their systems cleansed of whatever they’ve eaten, so purge them by placing them on a strict diet of lettuce only.

Remember the futon? It was popular back in the day ... to be specific, back in the ’70s and ’80s. Many a college student opted for the inexpensive, yet useful, sofa-by-day, bed-bynight futon. They were quite useful in a pinch, but some were not so comfortable when used on a regular basis. But that has changed. The new and improved futon is here. It is still affordable, plus the

When the sun is shining and the summer breezes are blowing, it’s difficult to resist the call to relax outdoors. But if you have a blank canvas of grass or a cement slab, it doesn’t exactly call to mind visions of barbecues and family gatherings. Don’t stare longingly out the windows this summer when you can expand your living space outdoors. Keep the scale of your space in mind. If you have a large yard, small furniture will be dwarfed. Create a focal point, whether it’s your dining table, an outdoor fireplace or a water feature. Carry over your indoor style to your outdoor spaces to make them feel like an extension of your home. A stylish outdoor living space doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Figure out what you’ll use the space for most and create a plan that covers the main elements.

Patio If you don’t have a deck or cement patio, it can be an expensive home improvement project. If you’re not ready for the work or the investment, try ready-made patio blocks that make it easy to have a sunny and stable outdoor space in minutes.

Futons no longer just for dorm rooms By Rosemary Sadez Friedmann

Stylish, affordable outdoor spaces

sleeper is made with real traditional mattresses. You have a choice of wrapped coiled springs and memory foams, and some include that topper often called pillow top. The beauty of the futon is its flexibility. Yes, it is a bed, and yes, it is a sofa, and yes, it is inexpensive. The mattresses, as mentioned above, are available in a variety of sensitivities, from extra-soft through ultra-firm. There is another advantage to the futon: you can change the cover when

you change your decor. The covers on futons are like pillowcases that can be removed for dry cleaning. They come in a variety of colors and patterns. Did you know that futons also come in chair versions? If all you need is a single bed for an occasional sleepover guest, the futon chair might be your answer. Rosemary Sadez Friedmann, an interior designer in Naples, Fla., is author of “Mystery of Color,” For design inquiries, write to Rosemary at DsgnQuest@aol.com.

Create your own outdoor cafe with a patio set. You can find sets in every style from simple to ornate and in materials from weather-resistant and easy-to-maintain resin. Add an umbrella for extra style and to shade out the sun. If you’ve got room, add several cozy chairs with outdoor cushions.

Lighting Candles or white string lights are often all you need to create a festive or intimate mood on a warm summer night. But for walkways and paths, make sure to keep it safe with low-voltage or solar lighting.

Outdoor Cooking Making your space into an outdoor kitchen is as easy as adding a grill. Whether charcoal or gas, cooking outdoors during the summer is a great way to entertain. – Article Resource Association

Do you ever wish you could create a more comfortable home environment while also having a positive impact on the environment? This can be your reality with motorized awnings and window coverings. Window covering and awning motorization has many benefits, one of which is reducing heat gain and loss – which creates a more energy efficient home. By providing shade to windows and patio doors, interior temperatures can be significantly reduced, which will ultimately help to reduce cooling costs. According to an energy study conducted by the Professional Awning Manufacturers Association, more energy is lost through glass doors and windows than through any other part of the home. The exceptional insulating benefits of awnings and window coverings are enhanced with motorization that is so easy to use, you’ll find yourself using them more frequently. They include handheld remotes, wireless wall switches and timers that you can program to operate shades at predefined times or sensors that can automatically lower shades and extend awnings when the sun reaches its strongest

Tips for buying a foreclosed home By Holden Lewis bankrate.com

Buying a foreclosed home is a little different from buying a typical resale. In many cases, only one real estate agent is involved. The seller wants a preapproval letter from a lender before accepting an offer. There often is little, if any, room for negotiation. The home comes as is, and it’s up to the buyer to pay for repairs. On the upside, most bank-owned homes are vacant, which can speed up the process of moving in. “Buying a foreclosure is definitely a bit of a grind. It’s not easy,” says Robert Jenson, owner and founder of the Jenson Group at Re/Max Central in Las Vegas. “You’re getting fantastic pricing, but sometimes it takes going through a lot of houses and writing a lot of offers to get the home you want.”

In Jenson’s stomping grounds of Las Vegas and surrounding Clark County, the housing bust hit hard, and upward of 80 percent of homes sold are “distressed properties” – foreclosures and short sales. A short sale happens when the lender agrees to let the owner sell the house for less than the amount owed because the owner can’t afford the monthly payments. Nationwide, about one-third of sales in May were of distressed properties. A big chunk of those sales went to first-time buyers, according to Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors. The first two steps in buying a foreclosure should happen almost simultaneously: Find a real estate broker who works directly with banks that own foreclosed homes and get a preap-

proval from a lender. The goal of combing through foreclosure listings is not to find a house; it’s to find an agent. Banks usually hire one or a few real estate brokers to handle their REO properties in a market. In a lot of cases, the buyer works directly with the bank’s broker instead of using a buyer’s agent. That way, the commission doesn’t have to be split between two brokers. “A lot of these Realtors have a longterm relationship with these banks, and they know of listings that haven’t even come on the list yet,” says Elaine Zimmerman, a Memphis, Tenn. real estate investor and author. “Call them about the listings that you’re interested in, but also ask them about listings that may be coming up because sometimes it may take a day or two or even a week before a listing actually comes onto the database.” Such a request might not always pan out. In places such as Las Vegas, where thousands of foreclosed properties are for sale, you might not get much oneon-one attention from overloaded agents. To prove that you’re serious

about buying, says Jenson, “right before or after you meet with the agent, meet with the lender.” Unless you plan to pay cash, you’ll need a recent preapproval letter from a lender. The letter will describe how much money you can borrow, based upon the lender’s assessment of your credit score and income. “The problem is buyers want to find the house first, and then they think they’ll work out the financing,” Jenson says. “But the problem is the really good deals on these bank-owned, they go quick – and the buyer doesn’t necessarily have time to try to work out the financing afterward. They need to work that out first.” Zimmerman says some first-time buyers make the mistake of assuming that the bank selling the home will also finance the mortgage as part of the deal. “Don’t expect to get financing from the bank that foreclosed on it,” she says. “That’s a totally separate transaction, and they view it that way. The people in the (bank’s) REO department are not loan officers. They are getting rid of bad assets.”

I am not the rugged outdoorsy type, but I love to celebrate the beauty of the natural world in my decorating. So when I entertain this summer, I’m inviting Mother Nature to help me dress my table with dishware, linens and accents inspired by her handiwork. If you’d like to create a memorable table that has a natural twist, start with linens that reflect the hues of the season. How about a yummy silk tablecloth that’s the color of melons? For added luxury, let the cloth spill over the table so the edges drag on the floor. Next, turn your attention to making each person’s place a bit magical. To bring in the feel of the summer woods, start each place setting with a twiggy wicker tray topped with a charger. For fun, add a bit of a surprise by layering a 10-inch-square mat of faux grass sod or an oversized faux cabbage leaf under

your dinner plate. Place a majolica salad plate shaped like a leaf or flower on top of the dinner plate. For the crowning touch, put a terra-cotta oil-burning lantern or a petite potted succulent on top of the salad plate, then cover the stack of dishes with a big glass cloche. A summer decorating tool you probably have on hand: old terra-cotta flowerpots that have an aged patina. Use the flowerpot saucers as chargers or as trays to give your table garden charm.
