When Winter Weather Strikes

With winter finally making its way into our lives this season, it is important to remember the dangers that come with the cold weather. You and your home face risks at the threat of a winter storm that can damage your property or leave you without power.


Frozen pipes can lead to expensive repairs and many headaches. If the temperature drops below twenty degrees Fahrenheit, your pipes run the risk of freezing. Luckily, there are several preventative steps you can take.




Open your cabinet doors. This allows warm is to circulate closer to your pipes.


Keep your faucet on a slow, steady drip. The moving water prevents freezing.

5 Fun Alternatives to Boring Walls!

Ever looked at your walls and thought "I wish I could do something more with this boring wall color"? Well now you can!! 

For some, paint just isn't enough....

1. Living moss wall


This one is a bit extreme, but looks amazing! If you have a green thumb I would definitely give this a try.
This would help to bring the outside feel into the home
Plants have a direct impact on ones well-being
Be prepared for extensive maintenance (it is a living wall after all!)
Love the idea, but not the price tag? 

Replace the succulents with moss for the same look and effect with a less expensive price tag




2. Backlit Stone


If you are looking to add the "wow factor" to your bathroom or kitchen this option is for you!
Backlit Onxy is absolutely breathtaking
You may spend a bit more than you would with normal stone, but the result will blow your mind


3. Scratch and Sniff Wallpaper
