10 Great Tips for Managing the Holidays
holiday tips

The holidays can be a stressful and busy time. Finding ways to make this time of year easier and get you into a more festive spirit is key to surviving the holidays!

10 Tips for managing the Holidays, Leigh B. Morris December 12th, 2018

1. Practice self-compassion.
You give to others, don’t forget to take care of yourself. This might include such things as reading a book, relaxing, or spending time with significant people in your life.

2. Donate something to those less fortunate.
You can donate food, toys, articles of clothing, or give your time to a cause of your choice.

3. Send a note of thanks and appreciation.
Consider sending to a friend, a family member, or a colleague. It might just make their day.

4. Find time for laughter.
Do the things that make you happy.

5. Try to get enough sleep.
At least 6 to 9 hours of sleep a night goes a long way to help manage stressful times better.

6. Spend time in nature.
Breathe in some crisp fresh air, enjoy a winter walk, or just find some peace in watching the falling snow.

7. Try to do something physically active each day.
This can help with both your physical and mental well-being.

8. Be mindful of the small joys in each day.
Take a moment to notice the beauty in the sights and sounds of the holiday season.

9. Eat healthy and nourishing food.
But don’t beat yourself up over a cookie or two.

10. Express yourself.
The holidays can bring up positive and challenging emotions. Honour these emotions by expressing them in a healthy way. Suggestions include journaling, engaging in a spiritual practice, creating new rituals or getting together with significant others.

Home Renovations with a Great Return on Investment
upgrade 4

teamrealty.ca, Home Renovations with a Great Return on Investment


Even if you love your space, at one point or another, most homeowners have thought about making changes…“I love our kitchen, but what if we added an island?” or “our ensuite bathroom is great, but I’d love double sinks” or even “our basement is so spacious, I wonder what it would look like finished”. If this sounds familiar read on!

“When we decided to sell our first home for an opportunity to ‘move up’, we knew we needed to update the kitchen and bathroom to attract buyers and get the price we wanted. Once the renovations were competed, it looked so great (and our house sold quickly and for the price we wanted!). My only regret is that we didn’t do it sooner so we could have enjoyed it ourselves!” – Stephanie (Seller)

Home renovations can truly revamp a living space and make your home more enjoyable to live in and if you’re thinking of resale, can actually add value to your home and give you a great return on investment!

LET’S START WITH THE BIGGER BUDGET RENOS:
Let’s get cooking! It’s agreed upon by most that a kitchen remodel is the number one room to renovate in your home – especially when it comes down to adding a little extra value. By adding some new (neutral) cabinets, a coat of paint, and some stainless steel appliances, the value of your property is bound to certainly increase.

Add a little modern flair to your bathroom.  Second to your kitchen, updated bathrooms will certainly appeal to potential homebuyers (and visitors). Let’s face it no one wants to walk into a dingy or dated bathroom. Start with the main level bathroom or your ensuite for the biggest impact.

Say goodbye to carpeting! Speaking of outdated, let’s dive into carpeting. In short, carpeting gets stained (especially with kids and pets, right?); needless to say, carpeting becomes rather difficult to keep up with in terms of keeping it clean. However, by replacing those floors with something like hardwood, laminate or vinyl, you’ll be adding substantial value to your home (not to mention crafting a little modern charm to attract home buyers in the market).

ON A BUDGET? NO WORRIES! HERE ARE A FEW TIPS FOR HOME IMPROVEMENTS THAT WON’T COST YOU A FORTUNE. HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO ADD VALUE TO YOUR WITHOUT SPENDING A WHOLE LOT OF TIME AND/OR MONEY.

Introducing three small words: paint, doors and trim. Adding a coat of paint to a room (and to your trim) can actually go a long way in terms of brightening a living space. And in that same breath, updating main doors throughout your home can really modernize your living quarters (don’t forget hinges and handles!), adding some worthy return on investment when selling.

Hardware and more: keeping with the idea of changing up a few small things to make a big difference, switching out bland hardware and light fixtures can make any room feel more at home. Add new hardware to your kitchen cabinets and drawers, handles to your doorways, pot lights to an open concept living space – the list goes on!

Do it yourself.  Since the invention of YouTube and Pinterest, DIY projects have never been easier! While you should always hire a professional for things like electrical and plumbing work, there’s a how-to video on almost every home improvement project!  Learn how to tile a backsplash, install a floor and everything in between, if you’re not afraid of a little hard work, not having to pay for labour can save you significant cash!

By putting in a little time renovating your home, you’re sure to get back a little investment in return with each project you take on. In fact, sometimes such renovations (as listed above) can have a return value of 5-6 x what they cost.  Now, that’s something to write home about! Time to dig up those tools and pull out those drawing boards. Happy renovating!

Paint Trends for 2019: Just Breathe
paint4

NationalPost.com, Paint Trends for 2019: Just Breathe by Martha Uniacke Breen. October 27, 2018.
 

The major paint manufacturers have unveiled their picks for colour of the year 2019, and if all the choices
could be summed up in one idea, it would be “relaxed.” That’s not to say next year’s palette is neutral or
boring; ¬there are jewel tones and an evolution of strong shades, including near-blacks, from past years.
But what distinguishes this year’s picks is a general smokiness, a gentling down of colour, and a sense
that many of these colours would work together beautifully, even across brands. Which means that
making choices in décor, from fabrics to materials and textures, is easier than ever for consumers.

 

What’s driving this movement towards easy-going, simplified decorating? Colour-of-the-year choices often
grow out of a range of demographic, cultural and even political trends, as well as more material influences
such as fashion and industry. Arguably, political noise on both sides of the border and around the world
has given us an urge to just go somewhere and be quiet for a while. And what better sanctuary than
the home?

 

“When we sat down to discuss design and colour from a social perspective, we came to the idea of the
Quiet Revolution,” explains Sharon Grech, colour and design expert at Benjamin Moore. “The mood is
similar to last year, but now the reaction is different. Where we might have been more passive in our
convictions last year, now the feeling is, ‘I need to pause, to take a break.’”

 

Cloud White Ben Moore

For Susan Forint, design and colour expert at Dulux, there’s a certain exhaustion with 24-hour political
news, communications and technology. “Perhaps we have too much information at our fingertips; we
need to turn to nature, to reboot, step away from it.”

 

It’s also about a longing for simplicity, adds Erika Woelfel, Behr VP of colour and creative services.
“Curation is a word we’ve been hearing a lot. It’s about simplicity, streamlining our choices, helping
to narrow down our decisions.” The rise of super-decluttering trends like the Marie Kondo Method
appeals to our need to regain control through overcoming the excess — physical and
psychological — in our lives.

 

Sherwin Williams’ director of colour marketing, Sue Wadden, points out that a return to our own unique
touchstones is very important these days. Disparate influences, from roots and global cultures to the
women’s movement, translate into colours that have a personal resonance. The popularity of cosmetics
colours, such as blush, peach, corals and other shades that are flattering to the skin and soothing to the
soul, tie into this.

 

Benjamin Moore recently announced Metropolitan as its 2019 pick, a complex mid-grey with undertones
of green, yellow and blue. “It’s more interesting than just a plain battleship grey,” says Grech. “It’s not
always what it appears to be. It’s versatile and glamorous, but it’s soft as well. It’s as if society needs a
break and a way to find common ground, and grey is great for that.” Even the name carries a sense of
community, Grech observes, comparing it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. “It’s about a
sense of commonality we share with other people.”

 

VERSATILE

Sherwin Williams’s 2019 pick, Cavern Clay, picks up on the one-world idea. A rich, desert terra cotta, it’s
similar to the Santa Fe colours of the ’70s, but more versatile than that. “It’s really like a matte version of
copper, or rose gold,” says Wadden. “There’s something familiar about the colour that appeals to people.
We’ll be seeing this shade in many media: furniture, textiles, and consumer products of all kinds. And it
works well with many colours and textures: neutrals, navy, greys, natural materials.”

 

Dulux has chosen a deep, velvety green with grey and blue undertones called Night Watch. “It’s both
calming and invigorating at the same time,” explains Forint. “There’s a nod to nature, but it has an urban
sophistication as well.” The shade has a cocoon-like, almost dimensional feeling, and a mid-tone value
that can perform either as a neutral, or a colour, depending on what you pair with it.

 

Metropolitan Ben Moore

Behr’s 2019 choice, Blueprint (one of the most illustrative names in the 2019 palette, since it’s exactly the
colour of blueprints), reflects a trend to blues of every hue in such disparate areas as travel, automotive,
fashion, textiles, consumer products and even food. “And of course it’s a colour we see everywhere in
nature,” says Woelfel. “Blueprint is neither dark nor light. It represents stability but also confidence; it’s a
classic. It hits the sweet spot between all of these things.”

 

Usually, paint companies roll out a range of supporting shades to offer inspiration and choices to combine
with their colours of the year. In the case of Benjamin Moore, Metropolitan was drawn from its Affinity
Collection, introduced a few years ago as a way to simplify the task of choosing colours that go well
together. (The Marie Kondo Method applied to paint, in a sense.)

 

“Every one of these colours has the same feeling as Metropolitan, with that softness,” says Grech.
“Kendall Charcoal has been my go-to grey for years; it just envelops you. Beau Green is a bit brighter
than some of the others, with a global feeling to it. And Head Over Heels is warmer, more mature
than a lot of other pinks.” A nod to the idea of familiarity comes in the inclusion this year of BM’s
top-selling white of all time, Cloud White, along with a cooler tint called Decorator’s White.

 

According to Behr’s Woelfel, all the colours in the 2019 palette have similar saturation levels, which help
them naturally harmonize. The company divides its suggestions into four palettes, each of which create
different moods or effects. Some of Woelfel’s favourites include Sand Dance, a misty tan-peach that
pairs especially well with Blueprint; Watery, a delicate light blue more sophisticated than baby blue;
Antigua, a near-tropical teal; or Mars Red, a gentle, pale coral-red.

 

In the Sherwin Williams palette, Sue Wadden recommends Distance — “blues will be very important next
year, but not sweet blues; this is a dusty, natural, earthy blue. It looks great with stone whites and
mushroom shades.” Haven is an updated sage green, another ’70s colour due to reappear that, says
Wadden, “plays well in the sandbox with many colours and looks, from Scandinavian to
mid-century modern.”

 

FINISHING TOUCHES

Dulux recently introduced a new finish called Venetian Silk as an updated version of the paint treatments of
the ’90s, available in 40 colours, including a variation on the colour of the year called Mojito Shimmer.
Applied in a simple two-step treatment, it produces a shimmering, dimensional effect, and can be used either
as an accent wall, or for a whole room, to instantly elevate a space.

 

All of the 2019 picks are relaxed and easy to work with; unlike some edgier shades we’ve seen in past years,
the overall mood is elegant but softer. And all of these colours seem to have been chosen for ease of decorating,
since every one is equally at home with natural fibres and textiles, hard metals or soft woods, and a range of
decorating styles.

 

“All of these colours will play together and bring out the things in your room — furnishings, art, accessories,” says
Grech, “rather than draw attention to themselves. Which is really the whole point of a great paint colour, after all.”

What You Need to Know Before Listing your Home in the Fall
listing in the fall 2listing in the fall blog
Protecting Your Home from Critters
As the cooler weather starts to roll in, we are all thinking of cozying up indoors and unfortunately our furry friends outside are also thinking the same. Wild animals are currently looking for warm spaces to call home for the winter months and unfortunately our homes can be an attractive target. When animals get into a home, the damage can be severe and costly to fix but fortunately, with some careful planning you can ensure that you are not welcoming some unwanted guests over the winter months.

Ottawa is home to many different critters but let’s take a look at the most common and how we can prevent them from entering our homes. While you are doing your fall maintenance, take some time to inspect your property to ensure that you are not providing easy access.

Mice

Mice are the most common animal to have in your home. Their small size and ability to squeeze through the tiniest of spaces make them hard to prevent. You will want to search the exterior of your home for any possible entry points. Look for cracks in the foundation or walls and seal anything that is any larger than a quarter of an inch. Also, check your window and door seals. If you have mice in your home, the most common sign is their droppings which look like dark brown grains of rice. Mice can cause a lot of damage by eating insulation and wiring so if you believe that you have a problem, it is important that you deal with right away; you will want to eliminate food sources, set traps, and try to find their entry point to seal it up.

Rats

Rats are becoming more and more prevalent in Ottawa and are a growing concern. Like mice, they can squeeze through small spaces and can be incredibly damaging in your home. As rats are considered a public health issue, it is important to report all sightings to the city as they may choose to put poison in your sewers or take action if they feel it is a neighbourhood problem. Unfortunately, if they are on your property, it is your responsibility to take care of the issue. The type of rat currently being found in Ottawa tends to live in the ground but will access your home, especially at night, if it provides them with a food or water source. If you have rats in your home, determine how they are entering, set traps, and eliminate food and water sources. To keep rats away from the exterior of your home, it is very important to secure all garbage properly and dump standing water after all rainfalls.

Raccoons

Raccoons are highly intelligent trouble makers. They are known for their opposable thumbs and the ability to outsmart our best efforts to keep them out of garbage and food. They come out at night and can often be seen roaming the neighbourhood looking for food. At this time of year, raccoons are looking for a warm place to hibernate for the winter and attics are their favourite spots. Ensure that all aspects of your roof are in good shape (shingles, vents, soffits, chimney, and fascia) as any fault can provide them with easy access. It is also important to ensure that all trees are cut away from your home as they can help provide these animals access to the roof. If you suspect that a raccoon has taken up residence in your home, it is important to call in a professional right away to deal with it; raccoons carry many diseases that are dangerous to both you and your pets.

Taking Care of an Animal Problem

Depending on the type of animal and the scale of the problem, it is completely reasonable to deal with some pest issues on your own. Make sure that you understand the city bylaws for the types of traps you can set and where and remember, it is forbidden to relocate a healthy animal of any type. For larger infestations, larger animals, or ongoing problems it is advisable to hire a professional pest control company. Look for companies with a strong reputation and great references. Some offer guarantees and will return at no additional cost to you if the problem persists which may also provide you with some peace of mind.
