Housewarming: Shutters Add Visual Interest to Home's Facade

This bungalow in Pincourt attracted the owners with its simplicity, clean lines and potential.Since the construction of the house in 1961, the bricks have turneda weak dingy beige-grey, which is not in harmony with the neutral medium-grey roof. I suggest coating the bricks and mortar in the lightest colour found in the roof. This can be done using a specialized paint for these materials. This colour should be matte in finish and free of any lilac, green or blue undertones. For camouflage, the chimneys and pipes sticking out of the roof should also echo the roof shingle's hue in a matte finish.The owners removed the shutters, which to me, left the house looking plain. For visual interest, I would add new Shaker-style shuttersthat are the same height as the windows. They should be slightly deeper grey than the bricks, similar to the darkest hue found inthe roof, and show a soft-sheen finish. In this grey, a custom-made flower box will measure the entire length of the window, and should be at least nine inches high.For a more finished look, the carport should present doors. As shown here on my sketch, these two doors with hinges and handles should respect the Shaker profile, colour and finish of the shutters. The fence and trellis, in an opaque stain, will also have the same colour and finish characteristics.To be more discreet, the vertical gutter conduit and spout on the right could be re-installed on the side corner instead of the front.I drew new windows to include future improvements. In the meantime, all exterior components of the old windows - the fascias and eaves - would look refreshed by being covered with a few coats of white exterior acrylic paint in a matte finish.A new grey walkway, parallel to the house, will be created a bit further away from the facade. At an angle, a second way will naturally help form a large triangular bed centred by a new black lamppost. The lamppost head and wall sconce should be identical. Near the corners of this three-sided bed is an area that can showcase tall ornamental grasses with fine silver green foliage in summer and soft plumes in fall that sway with the softest breeze. These ever-moving plants will share their space with three inert boulders of different sizes.In the photo, the left bed near the foundation is awkwardly contoured with flagstones placed in an upward fashion that look like tombstones. Instead, I propose a more estheticdivider made of pavers or long cement borders to prevent the lawn from invading all planting zones.The merlot colour of the new Craftsman-style front door inspired my choice of burgundy shrubs on the left and purplish perennials near the driveway. Hints of yellow, white and green are a good combination for contrast with the blushing vegetation.In the new beds, a generous layer of old earth should be replaced by good garden soil for plants to thrive in and offer their greatest performance. In the huge planters and flower box, the soil must be mixed with Perlite beads to retain moisture on this hottest side of the lot.The neighbours put a lot of effort into making their garden beautiful. Now, the owners will also take pride in their own low-maintenance and colourful contemporary landscaping. (from left):Cornus alba (shrub, white and green foliage, red branches, left exterior corner of house)Berberis Rose Glow (shrubs, yellow blooms, burgundy foliage with pink tips, row along left foundation)Lamium Aureum (persistent perennial ground cover, pink blooms, citrus yellow foliage, no trimming necessary, beds near house and fence)Coreopsis Moonbeam (perennials, ethereal green foliage, citrus yellow blooms, exterior edge of path)Calibrachoa Superbells (cascading annuals, white blooms, edge of planters and front of flower box)Begonia semperflorens (annuals, white blooms, green foliage, three near centre of planters and several at the back of the flower box)Buxus Green Velvet (persistent shrubs, row along right foundation)Miscanthus Sarabande (3 perennial ornamental grasses, fine silver green foliage, cut back in early spring, mix soil with sand, triangular bed)Nerium oleander (annuals, scented pink blooms, centre in planters near garage, temporarily transplant in a sunny spot indoors for winter)Dipladenia sanderi (climbing annual, white blooms with a gold heart, trellis)Hemerocallis Purple d'Oro (perennials, purplish blooms, row near driveway and backyard path)*Thick layer of black cedar mulch over all exposed soil.

What Are Some Ways to Keep My Hair Really Healthy?
Use professional shampoo & conditioner. I know it may seem like a rip-off, however all the shampoos like Pantene, Garnier, etc. have a high alcohol content....since the normal pH of your hair is 4.5-5.5, things containing high amounts of alcohol throw your hair all out of whack and cause breakage, split-ends, fly-aways, etc. The reason these shampoos make your hair feel soft is because they contain high amounts of humectants, which are just a cover for how damaging they really are! Another tip is ALWAYS use a thermal protector while applying heat. Heat appliances cause tons of damage to your hair. Usually this is a cream/clear gel you apply before blow drying. Never use a flat iron on hair that is not completely dry!1. Split End Help. ( 10 Points) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?For sure you should get a trim and maybe even cut your hair as short as you are comfortable doing it. You should for no reason straighten or dye your hair. Look for some Garnier Fructis or Pantene shampoos and conditioner for curly hair so that it extra moisturizes it and helps the split ends repair themselves. I say from experience that ppl with curly hair have really bad split ends, which is why we have special stuff in our hair products. The split ends wont magically go away in like a month or a few weeks, but you will see improvement after a while. Oh, and for sure DO NOT PICK THEM OFF!! It will just make it worse. Every two months until your hair is healthy get a trim. just maybe half an inch or an inch will be just fine. Eventually your hair will go back to normal. Good luck with that!.2. Whats the best shampoo conditioner for cheap?clever or V05 are solid inexpensive ($a million) shampoos, yet whilst it is composed of conditioner i could bypass Tresemme ($6) it does an somewhat solid interest. i take advantage of salon shampoo because of the fact i am form of a hair snob, yet I nonetheless use the cheap conditioner. Pantene is undesirable on your hair (too plenty protein and reasons alot of greater build up on the hair) so i does not bypass there. desire this permits! My hair is oily, superb, and colour-taken care of if that helps you any!3. How can I get my curly hair to be nice like Taylor Swift?Haha i have the same hair long and curly..but not pretty curly! im completely obsessed with taylor and her hair so i did so playing with it and what you really NEED to get is the conair hot sticks!! they are these little flexible curlers and they are not very expensive and i would look like a frizz ball without them!! you can like get them at walmart. anyways what i do when iwear my hair curly is like i get up and get in the shower and wash it and condition it and this may sound weird but dont use a whole lot of conditioner just enough to get it done cause it will help your hair hold the curl the just get out and towel dry your hair till it is just damp and then put a curling mouse in it and frizz serum then finish blow drying it straight! and you know have the curlers on like when your gettin in the shower and then just make sure the little light is on meaning that they are hot enough and then seperate your hair into pretty small peices (if you have really thick hair then you might need to buy two sets cause they only have 14 in them and you use small sections) and then start from the botom of your hair and role it through your hair and pin it together youll see the instructions on how to pin them together and make sure you wrap it all the way to the top of your head and leave them for like 15 or 20 minutes while your finishin gettin ready and then use like a light hairspray about 5 minutes before you take them out then your done. i know this thing was really long but its not that hard lol!!!! hope i helped good luck!!!!!!!!
