Interior Decorating for Small Apartments

So you have a small apartment. You are possibly wondering, how do I make my small space look comfortable and inviting without looking cluttered? I have your answer. Actually, several answers first start with looking around, notice the placement of windows, and which way the light reflects in the rooms during different times of the day. You do not want to blind someone, who could possibly be visiting, by that stunning sunset. Also, look at your current furniture and the colors that it is or is not. Some colors can make a room look small, clinical, and cold. Good warm-toned colors also make it more comfortable for you to live there. Browns, Reds, Yellows, and Oranges are great colors to open up space and make the room warm and inviting. Use accent rugs to help with the addition of colors ...

Divorce: Moving on and Setting up a New House

When it comes to divorce, you may not get the house. In fact, neither of you may end up with the house, so you will need to learn how to move on and set up a new house for your comfort. Maybe you will look for an apartment, condo, or you may find yourself wanting to purchase a home. You will want to be sure that you know what you want in the divorce. You may want the house, but not fight for it and lose it. You may also want the house and get it, but then you realize you can't afford the place by yourself.

Build a New House or Buy an Existing One?

I am living in living in the fourth house I have purchased during my 23 years of homeownership. To some that may seem like a lot of houses, to others it may seem like I've just started. The simple fact is we Americans move a lot -- 11 or 12 times in a lifetime depending on whom you consult. Chances are you are going to purchase a house during quite a few of those moves and somewhere along the line, you may have the opportunity to build a new home. Should you? Everyone has fantasized at some point about his or her dream house. You may want closets big enough to live in; a bathroom that doubles as a spa; a kitchen in which you could produce programs for the Food Network. But, as in most fantasies, there is usually some epic journey required to achieve the goal. And building your dream ...

The Essential Guide to The History of Candle Making

The art of making candles has been around since primitive times. Of course, as time went by they become much different in design than what they were back then. In the early days, candles were a necessity for heat and light. Today they serve as decorations, wonderfully smelling mechanisms in our homes, and offer light for romantic dinners and baths. The first known use of candles is not completely known. The remains of clay candleholders that date back to 4 BC have given us the knowledge that they have been in use for a very long time. Those clay candleholders were found in Egypt. Candles were also used in ancient times in both China and Japan. These candles were made of wax extracted from insects and seeds. The taper candles of India were made from the wax extracted from boiled cinnam...
