Pin It Pretty
August, 2016 - Issue #142
The primary issue with trendy interior paint colors is that they are, well, trendy. To stay in vogue you might need to paint again in a few years. This beautiful Los Angeles apartment is both stylish while also transcending passing trends. Black and white is a sleek, modern color combination that simply isn't going anywhere.

Ants? Clean, Caulk and Use Scents
An easy way to make sure the ants don't come in is to keep the kitchen area as clean as possible. Set small bait stations to eliminate the scouts before they invite the rest of the colony. Wipe surfaces with a solution that is equal parts vinegar and water. The scent and taste of the vinegar will deter ants from entering, or staying, inside. Caulk any areas of your home where there are cracks that ants can enter. This only takes a short time and will provide a barrier between the outside world and your home. Sprinkle coffee grounds around the perimeter of your home to deter ants from getting too close. Ants still an issue? Hire a professional exterminator that uses a three-zone (Yard, perimeter, interior!) plan to eliminate your pest problem.
