topinteriormotive.comSimple Front Yard Landscaping Ideas That Make A Big Impact | V DesignDesign Your Front Yard Impress your neighbors and visitors with some simple front yard landscaping ideas. How much of an effort have you put into the outside appearance of your home? What does your front yard say about you as a homeowner? Better yet, what do you think when your neighbor's curb appeal is lacking, well, appeal? Curb appeal, by definition, is the attractiveness of a property for sale and its surroundings when viewed from the street. Curb appeal is especially important for selling homes because it is the first thing potential home buyers see when they pull up to the property. Just imagine if you went to look at a property and the front yard was a mess. Shutters are hanging off, the driveway is cracked and the grass looks as if it hadn't been cut in weeks. You wouldn't want to get out of the car. However, selling your home is not the only time you should be worried about the outside appearance. As the homeowner you want your front yard to be attractive at all times. After3
local.theonion.comSupposedly Educated Professor Has No Idea How To Get Bird Out Of Lecture HallKALAMAZOO, MI—Failing to complete the simple task despite his ostensibly robust academic background, onlooking students at Kalamazoo College reported Wednesday that their supposedly educated literature professor Gene Cabella demonstrated no clue as to how to rid their lecture hall of a bird that had flown in through an open window. “He was talking a pretty big game about his intensive syllabus, then the bird came in and he completely panicked. Guess you didn’t get your PhD in birds, huh, Professor?” said sophomore Ken Pei, chuckling to himself as he sat back and watched his so-called academic superior frantically wave a manilla folder in the general direction of the bird, jump backwards when it flapped its wings in his direction, then spend the next few minutes attempting to ignore the creature’s loud chirps as if the entire class hadn’t just watched him desperately try to scare it away. “You’re the one in charge here, bucko. Sorry they didn’t teach you this at Yale—do they not have birds there? Well, guess what, you’re at Kalamazoo now, fucker, so you’re gonna have to learn to deal.” At press time, Professor Cabella’s credibility had reportedly taken an “absolute nosedive” after he paused the lecture once more to place a panicky, stuttering phone call to the campus maintenance department asking for assistance.
topinteriormotive.comHome Lighting Ideas That Will Give You The Feels | V DesignDo not decorate until you read about these home lighting ideas. Rooms with the wrong lighting can definitely have an effect on your mood. Try reading in a room that has the tendency to be on the dark side or relaxing with an overhead light fixture with a 100 watt bulb in it. It's doable but not recommended nor is it preferred. However, getting the right ingredients at the right time will make all the difference. So trust me lighting matters. Let's start with the basics. It is not enough to only use one type of lighting in your home. You will have different purposes for your rooms so you will need lighting that serves those purposes. The number one rule is to create layers with your lighting. Not all spaces will just have one function so layering provides flexibility in a space. If you intend to have a multipurpose room, it is recommended that you install dimmers. This way you can add table lamps, sconces and even some track lighting to set the mood when you are ready to wind down. Be2
