Designing Spaces has put together three topics to motivate and inspire in the lifestyle improvement arena. What we find are DIY projects, home improvements and a visit to a community where residents are free from the responsibilities of home ownership. Our first topic moves us out of the house and into a rental apartment community where amenities, services and features are not available to homeowners. Next, we get stylish and energy efficient with new window blinds and treatments that can change the demeanor of a room instantly. Finally, we roll up our sleeves for some DIY home improvements using molding to create a stylish, upscale look inside a room. It’s all here, for you to take for keeps; from your friends at Designing Spaces.
