Posted by Zena Arnella on March 31, 2012 at 11:10 AM Comments comments (2)

Hello Everyone :)

I believe there is a new wave of thinking about old houses, and I want to share it with you all; so open your eyes to new income assests.

For the past 10 years, I have been absolutely immersed in researching homes built from 1945 through 1963 — the classic, post-World-War-II baby boom years. And over the past decade — and the past two-to-three years in particular — there is no question that I’ve seen a major tr...

Decorating with ORANGE (color)

Posted by Zena Arnella on November 30, 2010 at 12:27 AM Comments comments (0)

Most clients also ask on intense colors such as orange.


Orange feels citrus-y and is associated with:

- fun

- energy

- excitement

- joy

- enthusiasm

- fall and the harvest

- stimulation


You'd think orange would be comfortable in its own skin, but is has an identity crisis. It's always in second place after red. It's also the natural color of fire, but red is the name used to symbolize it. Orange is not as aggressi...

Inexpensive Decorating Ideas!!!

Posted by Zena Arnella on August 30, 2010 at 11:38 PM Comments comments (0)

Hi Dears,


Here are some saving ideas to inexpensive decoration. I used with my clients when the budget is tight.


1. Revisit what you already own. Refurbishing existing pieces is the best way to do some inexpensive decorating.

Sandpaper, primer and paint can transform just about any piece of furniture. Don't throw something out because you're tired of the color, and don't pass up a good deal on a piece of furniture just because you don't like the fin...

Solar Greenhouse!!!

Hello, August is here:


People are becoming more nature friendly, and most house owners are building greenhouses to harvest their own organic food. Do you want to build a solar greenhouse, let me tell you a bit about.


Calling a greenhouse solar is somewhat redundant, since all greenhouses are solar heated to some extent. The greenhouse itself traps the heat each day, as anyone who has been inside a greenhouse for just a few minutes on a sunny day knows. Al...

Posted by Zena Arnella on May 31, 2010 at 11:07 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello Reader, :)


June is here, the time to rethink your connection to earth; so Not all green design is pricey.


"I'm so tired of the green stuff that is so expensive."  "It sends the message, 'green is for the wealthy'. That's so not right. Green is for everyone!" Consider places like Goodwill and the Salvation Army. For a modern take on old accessories, I pick up shapely items at these stores and spray paints them white.
