HAVEFUNWITHPLAYFULDECOR Why not have fun with your home decor? It’s what designers are currently doing! Certainly, stark white kitchens and buttoned-up living rooms are still an option, but these days – a little playfulness goes a long way. Designers are using words like “charm” and “whimsy” to describe their own decor styles, with some noting it only takes one or two fun items in a room to set it apart from the ordinary. Examples of this approach could be a couch in a surprising shade – hot pink or bright yellow, an unusually shaped lamp, or a bold wallpaper. Artwork is always a great way to add personality. Plus, it can easily be swapped out if you tire of it or crave something new. It’s all about using your decor to tell a story. All you need to do is decide what story you want to tell and then go for it!

BRAIN TEASERS - DIABOLIC SUDOKU GREENCLEANINGPRODUCTSFORAHEALTHYHOME Our homes are our sanctuaries. Unfortunately some products designed to keep our living spaces clean and fresh may actually be harming us. According to the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit organization focused on the environment and health, many popular cleaning products contain carcinogens, asthma instigators and chemicals that can seriously harm your eyes, nose, throat and skin. Thankfully, there are a myriad of gentler cleaners – some you may even have in your cupboards right now! Vinegar.
