Designing Spaces has put together three topics to motivate and inspire your lifestyle. 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 with a host of amenities, services, and features are not available to homeowners. Next, we get stylish and energy efficient with new window blinds and treatments. Finally, we roll up our sleeves for some DIY home improvements using molding to create an upscale look inside a room.
