Renovation Guide 2010 – From Elle Decor

This renovation guide from Elle Decor features some great products for home remodeling – these items will be sure to inspire you for your next renovation project.

Here are some of our favorites from Deb Reinhart Interior Design Group.

Clay encaustic tiles by Country Floors are infused with ornamental appeal. Available in 16 patterns and come in 4" or 6" tiles.

Porcelain Wood Tile: Hastings Tile & Bath’s PLI Wood-Look Series tiles, made in Italy by Provenza, look and feel like distressed wood but are made of porcelain. These nonslip tiles are strong enough for heavily trafficked areas - ideal for everything from outdoor decks to kitchen floors.

One Coat Paint Valspar has launched a collection of eye-popping paints in its Signature Color line. Valspar’s new formula features supersaturated pigments, effortless application, and hiding power so complete it covers most old colors in one coat.

The 3/50 Project

American Express has come out with a unique campaign – a proactive campaign – to bring attention to the advantages of supporting small business as the holiday season launches on Black Friday. Their tag line Shop Small Business Saturday emphasizes some startling statistics.

For every $100 spent in a local business-$68 returns to the community. A large retail chain will give $43 back to the local community. Online purchases give nothing to the local community.

Using social media, print ads and an internet blast, American Express is to be congratulated for de-emphasizing the negative in this slow recovery .

Personally , I will now have a graphic awareness on how any purchase will affect the neighborhood I live; where I purchase makes a difference.

Thanks to American Express.
