Expert Q&A
A:
I want to update my
staircase. Where do I start?
A staircase makeover is
usually replacing the carpet
with wood and changing
out the balusters
(sometimes called spindles
or pickets), handrails and
posts. First try to determine
if you have real wood under
the carpet. The only way to
do this is to pull back the
carpet far enough to see
what is underneath.
Unfortunately, you cannot
assume if you have exposed
wood on the edges that
there is usable wood under
the carpet. Many times it is
plywood or pine underneath
the carpet. You will need to
decide if you want painted
or stained risers. Risers are
the piece of wood that is to
the back of and
perpendicular to the tread
(what you step on). Look at
pictures to determine your
preference. If you stain your
risers, the wood stain color
becomes very dominant. A
painted riser makes it easier
to differentiate each tread
and draws your eye toward
the staircase. If you are
replacing your balusters,
you will need to select your
style and pattern.
Depending upon the detail
of the makeover, your redo
may take just a day or as
many as 5 to 6 days.

For the third consecutive year,
MODA Floors & Interiors and
Agape Community Center, a
nonproft organization, continued
their Extreme Bedroom Makeover
partnership. During the one-day
event, MODA team members
remodeled a bedroom for eight
children in the Bolton Road
community in Northwest Atlanta.
Agape expects to provide 13
children with new bedrooms by the
end of November through similar
partnerships with local companies
such as MODA Floors & Interiors.
Rooms To Go provided new bunk
beds for the project, and Rosing Paint
Center donated paint and supplies.
MODA team members accessorized
the bright blue bedroom with zebra
comforters, colorful pillows, tree
wall decals, and new fooring. “This
is a highlight for us each year,” said
Dean Howell, president of MODA
Floors & Interiors, a foor and
window coverings resource in the
West Midtown Design District. “The
kids are always very appreciative
of their new spaces. We think the
Agape Community Center is doing
good work in the neighborhood it
serves.” Agape Community Center
provides afterschool programs
and family services that focus on
academic achievement, character
development, reading profciency by
third grade, high school graduation

Atlanta’s design experts share the
hottest trends for 2014
By Karon Warren
esign
your best year yet
d
With the start of a new year comes a turn to new designs and trends for the home.
Every aspect of the home will see some change to a certain extent, although it
won’t stray far from tried-and-true design aesthetics. “The boldest designs for 2014
are based on classical styles,” says Ann Wisniewski, ASID, president of AJW Designs
Inc. in Roswell. “Keeping it simple is the key to the classic, elegant interior, but try
to introduce trendy elements that can be changed easily.”
Several of Atlanta’s design experts shared with us their thoughts on what will be
hot in homes for the next 12 months.
Wall wonder
According to Laurie Laizure of Customized Walls, design experts throughout the country are
calling for wallpaper as one of the hot trends for the year ahead. But for some, the idea of
wallpaper is scary because they see it as a commitment and diffcult to install and remove.
However, says Laurie, “this is why I was drawn to a poly fabric material that has a repositionable
adhesive. You can stick it on and peel it off without damage [to walls]. More importantly, you
can print almost any pattern or even photographs wall size.”

Turning to texture
Home design for 2014 appears to be centered on comfort and texture. “Tactile touches
like sheepskin rugs, suede seating and silky curtains all mix together to provide a sensory
experience,” says Vicki Gladle Bolick of Bolick Interiors in Cumming. Incorporating handmade
items like chunky knit pillows or rag rugs also will be prevalent. “Sparkling embellishments will
be hot on the home front and will be seen in accessories, pillows and lighting,” Bolick adds.

www.atlantahomeimprovement.com ATLANTA HOME IMPROVEMENT JANUARY 2014 21
According to Jessie Danielle LaFalce, owner and president of Jessie Danielle
LaFalce, Interior Designer & Lifestyle Consultant in Atlanta, texture will coalesce
into a popular 2014 style trend: coastal decor. “What used to be relegated only to
beach houses along the East and West coasts is being incorporated into homes
throughout the entire country,” she says. As such, she says, coastal design works
best when mixing many different textures, such as washed woods, natural
reeded rugs and tiles that are glazed in watery blues and turquoise.
Awash in color
In 2014, the general census for top colors focuses on blues, yellows and grays.
“I feel like we will be seeing more blues in many different shades, from light
sky blues like Benjamin Moore’s ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ to deeper cobalts and
more traditional blues like Benjamin Moore’s ‘Williamsburg Wythe Blue,’” says
Constance Raines, principal/owner of CF Raines Interior Design Inc. in Decatur. “I
think the mustard colors may make a bit of a comeback in small amounts with
these blues, being a complementary color, and I think greens in shades of jade
and emerald will continue to inspire and be seen in 2014.”
Rachel Livingston Greathouse, owner and designer of Rachel Greathouse Design
in Milton, says she thinks warm grays will remain constant as a go-to neutral.
This is refected in Sherwin-Williams’ new Reasoned and Diaphanous palettes.
“The popularity of gray continues to elevate, and I feel it’s replacing beige,” says
Jackie Jordan, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams.
Furnishing style
For the coming year, expect furniture to be paired with interesting materials. “I
believe we going to see some stunning modern designs using natural materials
– thick-cut wood tops, soft upholstery – that are made with straight lines,” says
Peter Hemerlein, vice president of English Classics in Atlanta. In addition, Joann
Kandrac and Kelly Kole, interior designers with Kandrac & Kole Interior Design
Inc. in Kennesaw, say they expect color blocking on upholstery, inlaid bone on
tables and chests and geometric shapes, as well as the repurposing of antiques
using paint and current fabrics.
Also, furniture will feature clean lines and more of a modern trend. “Look for
more balanced scale showing up in lines of upholstery as well as case goods,”
says Debby Hall, founder and president of Hall & Company Interior Design in
Atlanta. “Heavy carving is out, and simple classic lines are making a comeback
but often with a twist, a bit of an edge.”
Light it up
New innovations in energy-effcient lighting also will impact 2014 home
design trends. “The huge amount of design choices and improvement in color
temperatures and affordability in LED lighting and light fxture styles will bring
excitement and many possibilities,” Raines says. “Outside illumination with LED
fxtures will offer more design options for outdoor spaces, updating our homes’
lighting and also help in saving on our electrical bills. Sculptural glass lighting
in a variety of colors for both interior and exterior will be coming in more
mainstream designs.”
Specifcally for interior lighting, Michael Fortson, showroom manager for
Illuminations, which has a location in Atlanta, says lighting should be a key
element in home design. “Do not be afraid to make a statement with your

lighting,” he says. “It can be the focal point of a room. Don’t make your lighting
an ‘afterthought.’”
One way to do this is by mixing contemporary lighting with Old World-style
interiors, Fortson says. “Europe has been doing it for hundreds of years,” he says.
“It is becoming much more acceptable, especially in kitchens with your stainless
steel appliances.”
Popularity contest
Although home experts agreed on many home design trends for 2014, they took
their own stance on which rooms would be the “hot” choice for this year. For
instance, Don Hagemeister, president and CEO of Totally Dependable Contracting
Services LLC in Marietta says master bathrooms are “hot” because people are
busy and need a space to unwind. Phil Saylor, owner and director of architectural
design for Tuscan Stone Mantels LLC in Norcross, says media rooms and outdoor
kitchens are top choices. But Hall votes for the home offce. “With so many people
working from home either on a part-time or full-time basis, there is more need for
effcient, functioning work spaces,” she says.
The kitchen ranked high as well. “This hasn’t changed much as it is the hub of the
home and where homeowners spend the most of their time,” Kandrac and Kole
say. Along these same lines, Bolick opted for the living room. “More people are
staying in and going out less,” she says. “So the rooms are becoming more relaxed,
livable and tactile.”
For Raines, the master bedroom suite will be important in 2014. “A feeling of
security is a continued emotional need for everyone,” she says. “The bedroom as
a secure retreat with luxurious linens and bedding will continue to be a way to
provide that feeling.”
Of course, with Atlanta’s mild climate, John Beach, partner with Paces Construction
Company in Atlanta, says outdoor rooms and living spaces will continue to be in hot
demand. “Covered decks and patios with comfortable all-weather furniture, dining
areas, fans, lighting and TV/audio systems can be decorated as casual extensions of
the home for family relaxation and entertaining,” he says.
Continuing to improve
When it comes to home improvements trends, two key rooms remain at the top
of the list: kitchens and bathrooms. “There is a continued focus on enlarging and
opening up older, smaller kitchens that are separated from other rooms in the
house,” Beach says. “People spend 40 percent of their remodeling dollars on their
kitchens, and all age groups now want larger open layouts.”
Homeowners are looking for more functional kitchens now that they are
entertaining at home due to the recession, says Alison Weidner, architectural sales
manager for Poggenpohl Atlanta. “People are using their kitchens, and they want
the best quality they can afford,” she says. “They are making an investment and
want a good return on that investment.”
The same could be said for bathrooms. “If you add a bath to a smaller home, you
have increased the value, in most cases more than the cost,” Saylor says.
With a new year comes new ideas and a desire for a fresh start. These home
design trends certainly give homeowners a great, stylish place to begin.

A Message from Brad Cruickshank
President of NARI Atlanta 2014
After four diffcult years, sales of existing homes are strong.
Home purchase is a popular time to begin a remodeling
project. Home valuations are rising. And many homeowners
have traditionally fnanced home remodeling projects by
leveraging their equity. Remodeling is back! We see further
confrmation by The Joint Center for Housing Studies of
Harvard University who’s Leading Indicator of Remodeling
Activity (LIRA) predicts continued strong gains well into 2014.
The recession was tough on many and remodelers and those
in related industries were not spared. The good news is
that the survivors are among the strongest, best managed,
and most professional firms. NARI is the association of
professional remodelers. So with the rebound in remodeling
we see a rebound in NARI Atlanta membership. And industry
related vendor and special service contractors can enhance
their businesses by doing business with NARI remodelers.
NARI Atlanta provides area remodelers with vital education
and networking opportunities which enhance thei r
businesses. And our four annual premier events (NARI Golf
Tournament, The Cutting Edge educational seminars, Tour
of Remodeled Homes, and Contractor of the Year Awards)
attract new members and improve NARI Atlanta’s visibility
in the community.
If you are a remodeling professional and are not a NARI
Atlanta member; become one!
If you are a metro Atlanta homeowner planning a remodeling
project, consider the best and choose from the enclosed list
of NARI Atlanta members.

Landscape Resolution #1:
A lawn that’s not a yawn
The lawns of Atlanta homes have historically been Bermuda
or Fescue, according to Jutt Howard, director of sales and
scheduling at North Georgia Turf Inc. (NG Turf). But in recent
years, locals are seeing the benefts of Zoysia lawns. Because
of this trend, turf breeders are developing new varieties
of Zoysia, including one brand-new variety that’s gaining
attention as the turf being installed on the Rio de Janeiro golf
course for the 2016 Summer Olympics frst-ever golf event. It’s
called Zeon Zoysia, and “it has quickly become the industry
leader for an all-around turf,” Howard says. The turf variety
features a fne, thin blade, a very low fertility requirement, a
beautiful, natural color and excellent shade tolerance.
Also, NG Turf’s partnership with Texas A&M University has
recently resulted in a new variety of Texas Bluegrass turf. “It’s
a variety we feel can better handle the climate of Georgia,” says
Jutt Howard with NG Turf. “This gives users who want a year-
round green lawn a new option that is better adapted to our
heat and humidity than fescue.” He adds that the new Bluegrass
will recover more easily from traffc, and overall maintenance is
much improved when compared to fescue. Howard says, “The
variety is currently having seed-production evaluations done in
Oregon to see if it can be grown from seed, as well.”
Landscape Resolution #2:
A blooming spring
One of the most prominent, ubiquitous fowers is the petunia—
so it’s diffcult for a new variety of petunia to garner excitement
when there are hundreds of varieties already available. But the
new Cha-Ching Cherry Petunia has done just that: generated a
lot of buzz, recently earning the 2013 Reader’s Choice award by
Greenhouse Grower magazine. “New for 2014, Cha-Ching Cherry
Zeon Zoysia
Cha-Ching Cherry Petunia Dear Dolores
60 ATLANTA HOME IMPROVEMENT JANUARY 2014 www.atlantahomeimprovement.com
0114_057-065_landscape.indd 60 12/10/13 6:15 PM
Petunia is something special,” says Phyllis
Long of Redbud Lane Nursery in Holly
Springs. “We produced a small crop of
this petunia for the fall [2013] and we
were surprised at how much we liked
it despite our ho-hum weariness with
petunias overall.” Kellie Bowen with
Full Bloom Nursery in Clermont agrees.
“In a market saturated with beautiful
vegetative petunias, this one from Ball
FloraPlant is a remarkable standout,” she
says. “The fower’s rich, wine-red color
with creamy-white pinwheels and a kiss
of almost chartreuse in the center make it
a versatile container-garden component
or a lovely hanging basket.”
The Southern Living Plant Collection’s
newest hydrangea, the Dear Dolores
(Hydrangea macrophylla ‘Wyatt LeFever’),
frst produces its pastel blooms in
spring, then reblooms throughout the
summer and fall months. A fast-growing
deciduous shrub (plan for it to grow 5 feet
tall and 5 feet wide) with bright-green
foliage, the Dear Dolores Hydrangea’s
fowers are blue in acidic soils and pink in
alkaline soils. “It’s an excellent choice for
shady border planting,” say the experts at
Plant Development Services Inc., creators
of the Southern Living Plant Collection.
Another hydrangea to check out is the
Fire and Ice (Hydrangea paniculata) shrub
from Ball Horticultural Company. This
new panicle hydrangea changes bloom
color every few weeks—from cream-
colored fowers in the late spring to
cotton-candy pink in midsummer to deep
magenta/burgundy in the late summer
and throughout the fall. “It makes a
stunning focal point!” Bowen says,
adding, “Unlike the old-fashioned blue/
pink ‘mophead’ hydrangeas, all panicle
hydrangeas need several hours of sun to
bloom, and they bloom on new wood.”
Do you love pink? Then watch your
garden burst into your favorite color
with the new Pink Explosion Azalea.
Offered by the Gardener’s Confdence
Collection through McCorkle Nurseries,
the unique variety features a compact
habit of 3 to 4 feet in height and width,
with repeat blooms in both the spring
and the fall. “The evergreen foliage makes
it an ideal choice for planting in mass
or incorporating into a shrub border,”
says Jaydene Reardon with McCorkle
Nurseries. “With little need to prune,

it is low maintenance and perfect for naturalized areas such
as woodland gardens.”
If, by the time the winter is over and spring rolls around,
you’re longing for that fresh-fower smell every time you
step outside the house, the Scentsation Gardenia (Gardenia
jasminoides ‘Leetwo’ PPIP) is the plant for you. Another member
of the Southern Living Plant Collection, this shrub is compact
(it grows approximately 3.5 feet tall and 4 feet wide) and
offers tiny, fragrant white blossoms over its dark, evergreen
foliage from late spring through fall.
Landscape Resolution #3:
Fall fowers
By the time autumn rolls around, your landscape is ready
for a refresh of color. Check out the Ornamental Onion
(Allium senescens ‘Blue Eddy’)—it provides interesting foliage
in addition to great fowers. “Alliums are fabulous for tucking
into nooks and crannies throughout the perennial garden,
rock garden or in container compositions,” says Kacey Cloues,
store manager for Garden*Hood—Plant Atlanta. She notes
that the Ornamental Onion’s bluish-green leaves “grow in
whimsical whorls that swirl in a compact clump,” and that
in late summer/early fall, the plants are “topped by globes of
lilac-lavender fower clusters,” growing about 8 to 12 inches
tall in areas of full to partial sun.
A new addition to the ever-growing sedum lineup is Proven
Winners’ Garnet Brocade. Blooming August through October,
this plant grows 16 inches tall, “but trimming it in the
spring will allow it to branch,” advise Ken Hall and Marie
Forrester with Hall’s Flower Shop and Garden Center in
Stone Mountain. The best part: its burgundy stems, foliage
and blooms. “It makes a beautiful red statement,” Hall and
Forrester say.

Landscape Resolution #4:
Fill in the gaps
One of the more diffcult landscape elements to plan is the
in-between spots, where you need a “fller.” These spots are
perfect for tall grasses; Cloues points to two new offerings: Big
Bluestem Grass (Andropogon gerardii ‘Indian Warrior’) and Korean
Feather Grass, also known as Diamond Grass (Calamagrostis
brachytricha). “Big Bluestem is a native American prairie grass
with a strongly upright habit,” she describes. “Its blue-green
foliage takes on hues of dusky maroon in mid to late summer,
and its feathery inforescences are borne on distinctive red
stems—extremely eye-catching, even from a distance!”
As for the Korean Feather Grass, Cloues exclaims: “Finally, a tall,
plumy grass for shade! If you’ve been coveting airy, ethereal,
waist-high grasses but don’t have a sunny spot in the garden, this
is the grass for you.” This variety grows 4 feet tall (when in bloom)
and has bright-green foliage with wispy plumes of pinkish-tan
inforescences in late summer. “Leave the foliage standing through
winter, as it provides valuable shelter for birds and wildlife, and it
looks beautiful with a light dusting of frost,” she adds.
Landscape Resolution #5:
Resist pests, attract butterfies and
hummingbirds
To resist deer and gain a striking, star-shaped foral aesthetic in
your landscape, check out the Southern Living Plant Collection’s
Miss Scarlett Illicium. This dense-growing shrub’s brilliant,
uniquely shaped crimson blooms appear in spring against

a background of glossy green leaves,
growing as large as 4 feet wide and 6 feet
tall.
Another new deer-resistant shrub is
the Florida Sunshine Anise (Illicium
paryiforum), an evergreen that typically
grows to 5 feet tall by 3 to 4 feet wide. “It
has chartreuse gold foliage during the
spring and summer, and in the fall, the
leaf color turns to a bright yellow and the
stems turn vivid red,” Bowen describes.
“Florida Sunshine is a wonderful
evergreen for adding interest and color to
shady gardens—a great way to brighten
up dark places!”
To resist rabbits, the scented foliage of
geraniums work well, and Garden*Hood—
Plant Atlanta is introducing a new variety
to its shelves this year. “We’ve long been
fans of Geranium ‘Biokovo’ and Geranium
sanguineum, but now we’re excited to
add a new purple-leafed variety of hardy
cranesbill to the mix: Geranium pretense
‘Dark Reiter’,” Cloues says. “Vibrant
bluish-lilac fowers cover the plant in late
spring/early summer—and sometimes
sporadically through the fall—but the
real treat with this plant is its distinctive
plum-colored foliage. The highly dissected
leaves provide fantastic texture and look
smashing paired with golden-leafed
hostas and coralbells, blue Carex ‘Hobb’,
leathery-leafed hellebores and delicate
ferns.” She adds that in the Atlanta area,
the plant performs best in spots that get
strong morning sun and afternoon shade,
or fltered light all day. It will grow 8 to 10
inches tall and about a foot wide.
An old-fashioned shrub making a
comeback is the weigela, providing
season-long interest. Its newest variety
by Proven Winners is the Sonic Bloom,
available in both pearl and red colors.
“The red is a lipstick color that attracts
hummingbirds all season,” Hall and
Forrester say. The shrub’s biggest bloom
time is in May, but it reblooms through
the summer and fall until frost.
“One of the most exciting and popular
introductions is the release of miniature
butterfy-bush varieties,” Bowen says.
“They will truly change the way you think
about the butterfy bush—no more taking
over the whole fower bed or smothering
other plants nearby!” Bowen points to
Proven Winners’ Lo & Behold Blue Chip
and Purple Haze butterfy bushes—both
of which grow to just 3 feet tall and
attract butterfies and hummingbirds.
“The unique, horizontal low-spreading
habit and feathery deep-green leaves hold
loads of dark-purple fower spikes that
radiate outwards like purple pinwheels,”
she describes.
Whatever your landscape goals are,
this year promises to be full of budding
beauty!

This 130-year old historic West End Atlanta home (circa 1884) started out as a classic one-story
craftsman style house. The simple layout took advantage of the large attic space and hip roof with
an altered roof line in the back adding enough square footage for two large bedrooms, a living
space, bathroom and laundry upstairs. A kitchen and large master bath were added to the main
level, creating space to add closets to the existing two bedrooms on the frst foor.
The homeowner, designer Barbara English, retained and restored all of the original heart of pine
foors, doors and windows and added a historic window salvaged from an iconic church renovation
during the 1970s, and 8-foot-by-8-foot skylight at the top of the new stairwell. The cabinets and
extensive trim in the house were custom made to replicate the original trim. Original doors were
refabricated to create leaded glass French doors mirroring the church window. All fve coal-burning
freplaces in the home have been converted to working wood-burning freplaces with gas starters.
Insulation was added throughout, and a tankless hot water system, along with a new roof, added to
the effciency of this home. Electric and plumbing have all been brought up to code.
English stresses the importance of honoring the style of homes in historic neighborhoods while
updating them to be more functional by today’s standards. She favors a touch of whimsy and color
on the walls and 14-foot ceilings to keep the look current and counter the potential heaviness of all
the wood trim. The lighting has been carefully selected to be appropriate for the period of the home.
Special thanks go to The Lighting Loft (www.lightingloft.com) for much of the recessed lighting,
Kass Wilson (www.kasswilson.com) for the dining room ceiling and powder bath fnishes, and

It’s only a narrow strip of metal. It can’t be
all that important! But when that narrow strip of
metal is deck fashing, it is vital. Like all kinds of fashing,
this little metal strip is there to make sure water does not go
where it can do substantial hidden damage over time.
The critical nature of this tiny construction detail was
confrmed during a recent deck tear-off. The existing deck
had been neglected for years, and even pressure-treated
wood is not immortal. Periodic application of wood sealer is
required not only to preserve the appearance of the deck but
also to protect the wood from deterioration. This particular
structure was past the point of salvage and a simple
replacement was needed. But in the building trade, simple
things can become really complicated when the demo
process gets under way.
The deck itself was attached to an extension spanning the
rear of the home—an extension that was itself supported

Tune in to The Bob and RodMan
Home Show every Saturday from
9 to 11 a.m. on 920 AM-WGKA to
learn how to improve your house
or apartment. RodMan is a certifed
home inspector, knows residential
property appraisal and is a hands-on
home renovator. Bob owned a roofng
company, has reclaimed distressed
properties for years and has master licenses as a plumber,
electrician and HVAC mechanic. www.bobandrodman.com
by metal posts and was, effectively, a second story over a
concrete patio that formed the entry to a daylight basement.
This extension contained an offce and library, a laundry
room and a kitchen. Lots of weight! Hope the picture is clear.
As the demo process proceeded, it was clear that certain
shortcuts had been taken during deck construction. Let’s
just say that it was only through the intervention of angelic
beings that it had not previously taken the 10- or 12-foot
trip to ground level. The problem now painfully evident was
the effect one of those shortcuts had on the structure of the
main house. That shortcut was to omit deck fashing.
A deck is a fat surface framed on a band to which
perpendicular joists are attached, and upon those joists
the deck boards themselves establish a pretty effective
catchment for water. The band is bolted (or in this case,
nailed) to the rim sill of the home, and the broad contact
between the home’s sill and the band to which the joists
are attached is a perfect place for water to collect. Water
rots wood. This uncomplicated formula points to the need
for deck fashing. That narrow strip of metal has a standing
portion that goes under the home’s siding or is let into the
brick mortar joint and it has a horizontal portion that laps
over the decking boards. The gap between the band and the
sill is closed and water is not drawn into the hiding place.
Omit deck fashing and please refer to the phrase above:
“Water rots wood.”
In this particular case, the rot to the main sill of this
overhanging portion of the home was so extensive that there
was real concern about immediate collapse. Supplemental
supports were quickly installed, the rotted framing cleared
away and fresh lumber put in place to carry the load. In the
original construction, pennies were saved by neglecting the
fashing. That decision added substantially to the cost of the
deck replacement and could have resulted in major damage
to the home. Talk about “penny wise and pound foolish”!

On-the-Go Security
Keep an eye on your home from anywhere
Mike Collard, Ackerman Security Systems Sales
Manager, started in the security industry in
1982 in Miami Florida with Rollins Protective,
eventually becoming the National of Sales
and Training Director. Mike joined forces with
Ackerman Security Systems in April of 2009
as the Residential and Light Commercial Sales
Manager. He has helped lead Ackerman in becoming one of the
fastest growing security companies in North America and the
largest in the Atlanta marketplace.
New technological developments in home
security let you keep a watchful eye on your home from
wherever you are. Using a web-enabled device and connected
video cameras, you can view live feeds of what is happening at
your home, and even receive video and picture notifcations on
your mobile device.
Remote access to your security system allows you to do a
variety of things, including:
Look in on the babysitter or nanny. Stop worrying whether the
person you left your children with is doing his or her job. Video
cameras allow you to see exactly what is happening when
you’re not there.
Investigate security notifcations. If you receive a security
notifcation that one of your security sensors has been tripped,
you can check on it immediately with live video.
Protect your family. You can use your system’s video cameras
to check in on elderly family members, ensure no one is
unsupervised in the pool and more.
Ensure your kids arrive home safely. Get instant notifcation of
the alarm being disarmed and front door being opened.
Arm your system from afar. Have you ever driven away from
home without arming your alarm? You can activate your
security system with a push of the button.
Watch over multiple homes. Have a vacation home or
investment property? Manage multiple locations from one
single device.
Save energy and money. Use your mobile device to quickly and
easily turn off the lights in your home or adjust your thermostat
remotely.
Have peace of mind. You will never again have to wonder if your
home is safe and secure. Simply log into your security system
on a web-enabled device and see live video for yourself.

0114_070-071_CAHP.indd 71 12/13/13 12:58 PM
Projects for your home can be fun, bringing
new life to rooms and giving your family a way to
create something together. However, we all know this is not
as easy at it seems, since each person brings his or her own
set of priorities that can affect the process (especially if both
parties tend to be stubborn!).
Since my family tends to be on the stubborn side, I created
this compromise that will empower any family to work
together to accomplish mutually agreed-upon priorities that
work within your budget.
1
Focus on one room of your house at a time. Have
everyone write down everything needed to make each
room complete for him or her.
2
Combine the list for each room into a spreadsheet. Put
all priorities into one column, discussing duplications
and changing or deleting them.
3
Assign a column next to the priority column to
each individual family member. Have each member
privately rank each item from 1 to 10 (1 being lowest
priority), keeping the budget in mind. After one person ranks
everything, hide the column and give to the next person.
4
After everyone ranks the items, use the last
column to display an average ranking for each
project.
5
Sort the list by the averaged-out priorities. Go
through the ranked priorities in order and discuss
and agree to start your home projects using this list.
Feel free to add action plans, deadlines and notes in the
other columns.
My family has used this method for years, and it has truly
stopped some “discussions”, putting us on the path of
really working together with all our individual priorities
heard and acknowledged. Remember to keep these lists
after you use them—they are fun to review down the road,
smiling about what you all created together.

Expert Q&A
A:
I want to update my
staircase. Where do I start?
A staircase makeover
is usually replacing the
carpet with wood and
changing out the balusters
(sometimes called spindles
or pickets), handrails and
posts. First try to determine
if you have real wood
under the carpet. The
only way to do this is to
pull back the carpet far
enough to see what is
underneath. Unfortunately,
you cannot assume if
you have exposed wood
on the edges that there
is usable wood under
the carpet. Many times
it is plywood or pine
underneath the carpet.
 You will need to decide if
you want painted or stained
risers. Risers are the piece
of wood that is to the back
of and perpendicular to
the tread (what you step
on.) Look at pictures to
determine your preference
(Pinterest and Houzz are
great places to see staircase
pictures.). If you stain your
risers, the wood stain color
becomes very dominant. A
painted riser makes it
easier to differentiate each
tread and draws your eye
toward the staircase. 
If you are replacing your
balusters, you will
need to select your
style and pattern.
There are websites
that allowyou to
“drag” different
balusters in various
combinations onto

board ceiling, customcabinetry, granite counter tops and WindsorONE trim

Atlanta’s design experts share the
hottest trends for 2014
By Karon Warren
esign
your best year yet
d
With the start of a newyear comes a turn to newdesigns and trends for the home.
Every aspect of the home will see some change to a certain extent, although it
won’t stray far fromtried-and-true design aesthetics. “The boldest designs for 2014
are based on classical styles,” says Ann Wisniewski, ASID, president of AJWDesigns
Inc. in Roswell. “Keeping it simple is the key to the classic, elegant interior, but try
to introduce trendy elements that can be changed easily.”
Several of Atlanta’s design experts shared with us their thoughts on what will be
hot in homes for the next 12 months.
Wall wonder
According to Laurie Laizure of Customized Walls, design experts throughout the country are
calling for wallpaper as one of the hot trends for the year ahead. But for some, the idea of
wallpaper is scary because they see it as a commitment and diffcult to install and remove.
However, says Laurie, “this is why I was drawn to a poly fabric material that has a repositionable
adhesive. You can stick it on and peel it off without damage [to walls]. More importantly, you
can print almost any pattern or even photographs wall size.”

Turning to texture
Home design for 2014 appears to be centered on comfort and texture. “Tactile touches
like sheepskin rugs, suede seating and silky curtains all mix together to provide a sensory
experience,” says Vicki Gladle Bolick of Bolick Interiors in Cumming. Incorporating handmade
items like chunky knit pillows or rag rugs also will be prevalent. “Sparkling embellishments will
be hot on the home front and will be seen in accessories, pillows and lighting,” Bolick adds.
