Did you know that the carpet companies recommend that you steam your carpets every 12-18 months?  12 months for heavy traffic areas such as family rooms, hallways, etc and 18 months for low traffic areas such as bedrooms? And, if you don't the warranty on the carpet is voided.  One could argue th...
My blog has been doing very well.  And, I mean very in generating a very full time income.  (In fact, for many it would be 2 full time incomes). My goal is to keep growing. So, I keep trying to learn and grow and diversify.  I've been taking a bunch of steps lately to do that (including...
My main website has been doing VERY well and earning a very full time income.  One of my closest friends and I talked last summer about creating another site.  Managing 2 sites is challenging, but doing it together as a team is much easier, especially since we each know how to do different things...
Are gray paint color out?  No, of course not.  But, colors and home decor do evolve over the years.  Cool grays were all the rage 5 to 10 years ago. Now, tastes have evolved to warm grays.

A...

I'm super excited about this...and I almost forgot about the phone interview I did with Elizabeth Mayhew from the Washington Post. Several weeks ago when I checked my contact forms I had a request from Elizabeth Mayhew.  I recognized the name instanteously.  Why?  Because I used to watch her ever...
The other day, I got a phone call from someone in Kentucky who needed some help with his Brazilian Cherry floors.  They were just sanded and refinished, and here's what they looked like:  There were 4 other pictures like this.  What's the problem?  The refinisher added a sealer to the wood. And, ...
This is simply for fun.  But, I'd love to know what your favorite paint color is. Sometimes when we get entrenched in our work, think about things in certain categories.   Lately, I've been helping a lot of people pick paint colors (as well as stain color...and sometimes how to choose b...
Lately, I've been doing a lot of in home design consultations.  I help customers picking stain colors and pain colors.  While I'm there, I often give them other design advice as well as tell them the right order to do things.  (In this regards, I know much more than the average decorator given my...
