Creating the Right Home Look

The look of a home is important. It matters to the homeowner or the renter. Visitors and guests can tell when a home is loved or despised. While a complete remodeling of a home can be very expensive, people can change the look of a home that an affordable price.

Wonderful Walls
The walls of a home can either hinder or help a desired look. Walls that feature faded or cracked paint can make a home look drab, dirty and unloved. Instead of keeping an old look, it may be time to remake the look of various walls. Walls can look marvelous when they are freshly painted. If the current colors are preferred, there is nothing wrong with keeping the colors but applying a new coat of paint. Wiping down walls before painting is an excellent way to get rid of cobwebs and dust.

Delightful Décor
Another helpful way to transform the look of a home is to replace specific décor. Lamps may need to be replaced. Discount retailers usually have sales on select lamps each week. At other times, all that a lamp needs is a new lampshade in order to give a new look to a room. Artwork has a way of giving style to a home. Works of art can feature classics from artists of the past. While some artwork can be pricey, other options can be considered. First, there are art fairs that are in numerous communities during the spring, summer and fall months. Be sure to stop by and discover unique works of art that are not seen anywhere else. Another option is a look at a secondhand store. While some may disapprove of that option, the reality is that many secondhand stores have unique pieces of art that are available at an affordable price.

The overall look of a home can be changed very quickly. Before making a change, make sure it is the right one. Whether people decide to go with rustic planks, quartz countertops or new wallpaper in a master bedroom, they can create the right look.

Visiting Dallas Arboretum

Had a great time visiting this very spacious and huge botanical garden, the Dallas Arboretum a couple of years ago. It was spring time in the 2nd of May when Sherry and I went there. It is a  nationally acclaimed 66 acre display garden and features breathtaking floral displays all year long. Nestled on the shores of White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum was named "One of the Most Breathtaking Gardens in the World" by Architectural Digest. I love flower gardens, trees and well manicured lawns. What better way to ring in spring than to see lots of flowers in bloom?  

The beauty of the flowers, the waterfall, the tranquility provides a very pleasant escape from the chaos of the outside world. We had fun seeing all the nice views, walking here and there and taking photos. I was not able to bring my DSLR camera so I had to use my mini ipad cam instead. I'm not really satisfied but better than nothing at all. The place is so huge and we had to walk most of the time, otherwise we rode their shuttle rides. Too much walking made my knees hurt afterwards. Made me realize I'm getting old. Though I got tired and knees hurting, still we had a good time.and let the photos speak for themselves..
