Packing, Loading, Transporting and Unpacking

Moving/Relocation is a time consuming process that involves packing, loading and transporting of your possessions from your current location to intended destination. The conventional process of moving in most parts of the country(Nigeria) is to hire a truck from a truck company not minding the types of items that are going to be relocated which sometimes end up in either loss of items or damage of items.

This particular hiccup can be solved by hiring a professional mover to help with the process which will ensure that the items are handled with care throughout the process right from the packing stage to the unpacking stage. Read More

The Colour Wheel: Colour Coding Your Home

Colours or lack of colours,  if you agree with me, makes a lot of difference on how the house will look or how presentable the house will be. I recently had to deal with a colour change for my parent’s house with a very unbearable painter who kept telling my sister and I what to use and what not to use which wouldn’t have been a problem if he was suggesting colours that actually made sense.

One thing I have learnt from the whole experience is that I know absolutely nothing about colours. Sure we were taught the colour wheel in school but nobody ever told me that there were more colours than I could imagine especially when you are planning on painting a house. This process requires careful consideration of what the room would be used for and who is going to live in it or,  if in case of offices, what kind of business would be conducted in the building.
