Color Phycology and Your Home

I found this cool info graphic and had to share it with you, though it is all correct I would say please do not follow this exactly. One it depends on your situation. Like Pink in a girls room. Purple would be just as great of a color or lavender. If your child hates pink don’t use it. Also with the Dinning room don’t paint it red if you are trying to lose weight. Red does make you eat more, studies have shown it. If your looking to keep yourself from eating so much paint your dinning room blue.

Other then that enjoy this info graphic and let me know what you think about it.

Get an Amazing Nights Sleep With Casper

A good nights sleep is not something that many people think of when they are redesigning their bedrooms. They are thinking of style, colors and a bit about comfort, but really your not thinking about your mattress. This is a huge mistake and something everyone should really take the time to think about.

Are you noticing that your not sleeping well? Do you toss and turn at night trying to get comfortable? Well, that more then likely means that you need a new mattress. That of course means going to the store and being harassed by the pushy sales person. Spending an hour or so getting fitted for your mattress and then buying one that still does not work well for you and cost you way more then you wanted to spend.

The good news is now you don’t have to do that. Casper offers a mail order mattress with a 40 night trial! So now you can spend more time figuring out what colors to paint your room and having the energy to actually do it!

Check out this great video for more information.

Six Plants to Incorporate in Your Home Garden

Home Garden

 

The following is a guest post

Gardening is a fun, healthy way activity. It can serve as your daily exercise, food supply and hobby. As you’re getting ready to start your garden, here are six plants you should consider planting.

1 Strawberries

Who doesn’t love the sweet, summery taste of ripe strawberries? A low, spreading plant, this sturdy perennial favorite grows easily in sunny spots. It produces pretty white flowers that soon turn into scrumptious bright red strawberries.

2 Tomatoes

Tomatoes are a staple of home gardens. Supported by stakes or cages, they grow tall and proud with green leaves that contrast nicely with the orange-red fruit. A delicious addition to salads or sandwiches when fresh, tomatoes can also be canned or frozen if you have a bumper crop.

3 Peppers

Whether you prefer the rounder bell peppers or skinny hot peppers like jalapenos or habaneros, peppers are a tasty and colorful addition to any garden. Depending on the variety you chose, peppers will shift from green to vivid yellows, oranges and reds as they ripen. Peppers can be eaten raw, cooked into dishes or frozen.

4 Leaf Lettuce

Do you want the freshest possible lettuce for your salads? Consider adding this fast growing plant to your home garden. Available in an astonishing array of leaf colors, shapes and sizes, lettuce can add a visual pop of healthy color and crisp texture to both your garden beds and your salad bowls.

5 Bee Balm

Bee balm probably isn’t the first plant that comes to a gardener’s mind, but it is a very useful one. It’s rounded flower heads are covered with vividly hued tubular flowers that draw pollinators like bees, butterflies and even hummingbirds. For humans, the plant’s leaves and flowers can be made into tea. Available with flowers in shades of white, pink and red, bee balm is also known as horsemint, wild bergamot and Oswego tea. Use it carefully because it can become invasive in favorable growing conditions.

6 Borage

An easy to grow herb with vibrant, star-shaped blue blooms, borage is often planted in vegetable gardens as a flower. It attracts bees and deters tomato hornworms, so it’s a fantastic companion plant for tomatoes and strawberries. Borage’s leaves and flowers are edible, with a flavor that is similar to cucumber.

 

If you’re looking to add practical beauty to your home garden, consider incorporating these six plants. You can take online horticulture courses to help get you started. Differences in climate, soil composition and the amount of sun received make every garden unique, so you may have to experiment with different varieties to find what works best for you.

Looking to Ditch your space

There are couple of options for you, this is not just a for property managers, though this is available. You as an individual can sublet your space to finish off your lease or do short term rentals. It's easy to get started just sign up and start posting pictures of your space. Now there are a few things you want to remember when taking pictures

Make sure you clean and clean well! People don't want to look at a dirty space.

Get a good Digital SLR, if you don't have one find a friend that does and have them take the photos. If you can't get a SLR, use another type of cameria and not the one on your phone, cell phone pictures just don't look as good.

If your not good at design find a friend who is or at least take a look at magizeans, you don't need to buy anything but update the look of your home to get a good feel for what will look good to others.
