Green Living Room Does a led color shelf work in a kitchen with a neutral green?

Question by Proverbial Quimby: Does a led color shelf work in a kitchen with a neutral green?
I’m putting in a wet bar and trying to think of something original to do. The kitchen color is Clary Sage, a Sherwin Williams neutral green. The living room is Relaxed Khaki, another SW color. I have cherry hardwood floors and white cabinets. A dark granite countertop is soon to come.

I want to put in a wet bar that would have a sink, dark wood cabinet doors, a granite countertop and a mirror with glass shelves to display glasses. Would a led-color shelf work with my current color scheme? Does the neutral / natural colors look clash with led accent lights?

Check out the link to see what I’m thinking (the shelves would be capable of changing to virtually any possible color, so i could adjust it to match the green I have). Is that too much? I’m new to the home decor thing, so feel free to be honest. I’m afraid I’m getting to into a cool idea and not going with what I should do.

http://www.bornrich.org/images/mood_light_shelf.jpg

Best answer:

Answer by stmichaeldet
Two thoughts – first, no, fancy glowing shelves are probably not going to work with a neutral/natural color scheme, even if you adjust them to match. Their fancy glowingness would probably overwhelm the more subdued setting you describe.

Secondly, buying fancy, any-color-glowing shelves and then just adjusting them to match the walls seems like a terrible waste of potenial, and a major case of conspicuous consumption.

Green Walls Living Walls What color wall paint would go well with a sage green trim?

Question by neil s: What color wall paint would go well with a sage green trim?
I am painting my aunt’s house and her trim is a sage green. The walls are a basic flat white right now. Her husband will not allow her to change the color of the trim and she wants to use a color other than white for the walls.

What color do you think would go well with a sage green paint? I’m think something light because the sage green is rather dark. Something that would give it contrast.

He will allow red.

Energy Efficient Homes Q&A: Do the new energy efficient bulbs provide better light for plants, like the regular fluorescent bulbs?

Question by gerlawgoody1: Do the new energy efficient bulbs provide better light for plants, like the regular fluorescent bulbs?
We are switching over to all new energy efficient bulbs in our home, and I wondered if I also need to buy plant lights, or if the new bulbs would serve this purpose?
coder70-Wow, I did not know that. All bulbs, just the new ones, or plant bulbs?
amalone, and soceity lulled me into thinking the curleque bulbs were good for the planet, guppy all over me! sorry bout that.

Best answer:

Answer by monophoto
All tubular fluorescent lamps are not equal. So-called “plant lights’ are made with phosphors that generate the wavelengths of light that enhance plant growth.

The same is true with compact fluorescent lamps. If you want plant lights, you will need to buy plant lights.

Keep in mind that light bulbs are highly commoditized. That means that manufacturers aim for the absolutely lowest production cost because they know that the market is highly competitive and will force prices to the lowest possible level. They aren’t about to spend on the specialized phosphors required for ‘plant lights’ when producing general purpose lamps for that commodity market.

Going Green Ideas Q&A: What color curtians should I have in my green kitchen?

Question by anna: What color curtians should I have in my green kitchen?
My kitchen is an olive green, my idea is that it will be a vintage italian kitchen. I have this beautiful old italian ad frame that will hang on one of the walls. I am adding the accent color of red here and there as well. The kitchen has a bay window in it, so I am just not sure what color my curtains should be.

Best answer:

Answer by Brutally Honest
White or ivory would be your best bet.

If you’re going traditional “vintage” you have to remember that color wasn’t wasted on drapes in the kitchen; color was used in paints, dishes, etc. So stick with your basic colors for window coverings.

well ive been renovating my basement, and even tho im only 15, ive had little help from dad and mom, not cause they wont help but cause i wanted to do it by myself. any way its a good idea to use tan, medium greens( kind of like a paste green), and white trim goes good with whatever color you chose to paint your walls. my basement had forsome reason pink paint everywear except the outside walls, and it was dark and dingy, i pained it tan and put up a couple pictures and it looks good so far. with the bar you could paint it a bright color like a red or put some cool tiles on it.

Not sure about Kansas, but I paid 350.00 for a Yellow sided green cheek conure at a Pet store in Texas. I also bought one from a breeder, which was a better idea, and I paid 275.00 for a Yellow sided Green cheek. Plain green cheeks run slightly less.

Green Living Nyc What do you typically do in weight watchers?

Question by ZzZzZz: What do you typically do in weight watchers?
I was thinking of joining after talking to my mother in law but how does it work? I gained 50 lbs baby weight pregnancy and its been 2 years. I love cooking and can cook everything from bread to all kinds of desserts. I was just wondering generally what do you do? Especially with the working out and what are the meetings all about? I live in manhattan, nyc and would have to bring my daughter. Are the meetings free?

Best answer:

Answer by Doodle Bug
I think the current membership is $ 42.50 a month which entitles you to go to the weekly meetings. They usually last about 30 minutes and talk on different topics every week. They are always interesting. Also, there is a general discussion from the group about things they have learned or experienced they share with others. It’s supposed to give you moral support.

For the $ 42.50 monthly fee, they set you up on a monthly draft on your bank account. You can cancel it any time you want to. They send you a monthly pass in the mail which you use to get into the weekly meetings.

The first time you go and join, they ask you to stay 30 minutes after the meeting so that they can explain the program to you. You are supposed to keep a daily food journal and figure your points. You can do it online. It’s a pretty good program. You can make a lot of friends at the meetings which will give you encouragement.

You weigh in every time you go, but it is held confidential and nobody knows what your weight is. You keep a little book with your weight progress. You can do your own exercise program if you want to and also keep it posted in your journal online.

Generally, the goal is to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week. Some lose more, some lose less.

You can go to the first meeting free and see what they do and how the program works.

http://www.weightwatchers.com/index.aspx

I noticed that you said you cook bread and desserts. Well, I can tell you that you won’t lose any weight eating bread and desserts. If you truly want to lose, you have to eat a lot of green leafy vegetables. And, even though Weight Watchers has fruits listed at 0 points, almost all fruits are loaded with sugar and you will NOT lose weight eating a lot of fruits. Berries are okay.

You have to remember that Weight Watchers is a business and they are interested in making money. Their program is skewed so that you will only lose about 1 pound a week. That’s because they want you to keep coming back month after month after month paying that $ 42.95 (renewal fee) every month for the rest of your life.

I personally think there is an advantage of going to the meetings over the online method because at the meeting you have to go in and weigh in front of someone who will record your weight. It’s called accountability and is one of the most important things you need in doing a diet . . . is someone to whom you are accountable. If you’re just doing it online, you have no one to be accountable to other than yourself, and we all know how that works.

If you’re going to do the program, I would recommend that you do the monthly pass and go to the meetings. You would get so much more out of it than just sitting at home trying to do it by yourself. In fact, stats have shown that people who attend the meetings have a three times greater success rate than those who try to go it alone. Good luck.

BTW, it is okay to take your daughter. They will not charge for her.

I painted one of my living room walls for the first time. It’s like a green but it’s all splotchy and stuff. I want to paint it lighter because I don’t like the color. It comes off my hands with water and soap. How do I get it off the wall?

Green Living Solutions What color rug would look good on a marble floor with dark furniture?

Question by Ts St: What color rug would look good on a marble floor with dark furniture?
I’m decorating my new living room. The floor is a light-colored marble & walls are off-white. Most of my furniture is dark Burmese teak-wood with a simple, modern, Bali-type style designs. I’d love any advice on the patterns or colors of rugs I could be looking for that would complement this. Thanks!

maybe a nice soft chocolate brown rug would go well

Green Smart Living Q&A: Why are people throwing away everything to go green?

Question by Sean r: Why are people throwing away everything to go green?
I have heard of people stopping using refrigerators, washing machines,and in one case indoor toilets to go green. Isn’t this too extreme? Why not just become a hermit and live in a cave?

Best answer:

Answer by iminlovewithemmettcullen
idk. i think thats crazy! we’ve done the fridge thing though, because we had a power outage. it was winter, so we just tossed our things in the snow! its quite the stress reliever, actually. but for people who dont live in alaska, what do they eat? canned veggies? darilies products only? its weird. if you want to save the enviroment, ride your bike or turn off lights.

Green Building How do I calculate a buildings probable power consumption based on its occupancy?

Question by Rubber Ducky: How do I calculate a buildings probable power consumption based on its occupancy?
I am designing a hypothetical building in Long Beach, CA. It is supposed to be a net-zero energy, green building training facility. I need to know what amount of kWh that I need to be able to provide power for using alternative means of energy production. My max occupancy is about 400-500 people. How can I calculate how many kWh that I need to provide for this building?

Best answer:

Answer by johnrymel
you will have to research on what kind of electrical fixtures you would have in the building, then how many amp that they will draw. How many hours a day will this facility be running?, and when you get that information. You need to find a good electrician and then ask him to calculate a load test on the building. he may give you a load test for a 8 hr day for example and then just have to multiply it out for a year or what ever measurement you need

Question by Lisa: vacations on the east coast that dont require a car as means of transportation?
me and my boyfriend want to go on a mini vacation. maybe about 3 nights or so over a weekend. we dont have a car and are on somewhat of a budget. we live in nyc and want to visit another city on the eastcoast (already been to boston). recommendations please!

Best answer:

Answer by trvlrno_1
The DC area is nice and you can walk all over. Another, cheaper destination would be Baltimore. If you stay downtown, you could spend an entire weekend just walking around at the harbor area.
