This post brought to you by Royal Building Products. All opinions are 100% mine.
My husband and I have known for a couple years that the exterior of our home is due for some upgrading. Each year we stand outside of our home and try to figure out what to do and what look we want. This leads to us procrastinating another year because of how overwhelming it can be! Windows, vinyl siding, roofing etc. It seems like and endless selection of styles and colours. How is it all going to look when it comes together?
It allows you to upload an image of your own home and change the vinyl siding, roof, windows and sliding doors with a vast array of styles and colours. Perfect! If you don't want to use an image of your own home, you can select from one of the stock home images to experiment with as well. You can see in the image above how I've started changing the siding colour from red, to blue. You can change a single section, or apply it to the entire home, allowing you a lot of freedom in choosing exactly how you want it to look.
You can save your finished masterpiece and access it at a later time, print it, and with a click of a button, find distributors for the products you chose in your area. Map, business names and contacts all provided. Amazing!
Royal Building Products has been in business for over 40 years and has a commitment to maintaining customer relationships which has in turn built a loyal following. In my opinion, a must for anyone I choose to help improve my home. As a subsidiary of Georgia Gulf Corporation with operations all over North America, Royal Building Products offers homeowners, business professionals, architects, engineers and distributors a broad selection of innovative, quality products.
Be sure to head over and try out the vitual remodeler tool. Let your imagination go... you might be surprised at the looks you pull together!

Since we've been planning to redo our back deck and add a pergola, I've had all sorts of ideas of how to personalize it. A hanging herb garden and a canopy to name a few, and a solar chandelier. Now that one I can do in advance!
This is an easy to complete project and can cost you virtually nothing, or up to as much as you want. My completed chandelier was under $10.
The trip of a lifetime...
Let's get right to it. You and 3 friends could win a one week stay in the gorgeous vacation home of CB2 collaborators, Bob and Courtney Novogratz, in Trancoso, Brazil!
With their bold and colourful style, this husband and wife design duo's use of moden and vintage is fresh and playfully unpredictable as seen in the CB2 and Novogratz Collection.
Who wouldn't love the chance to visit the vacation home of such a dynamic design team. The fact it's in Brazil is icing on the cake!
There may only be one chosen winner for the trip to beautiful Brazil, but 10 other lucky winners will receive a CB2 giftcard worth $100 along with a personally signed copy of the book “Home by Novogratz”. The book for inspiration and the gift card to get you started!
Don't delay, the CB2 and Novogratz Brasil Sweepstakes is only open May 2nd until June 3rd, 2013.
The pairing of CB2 and Novogratz couldn't be a better fit. The colourful and modern style of Novogratz flows incredibly well with CB2's urban vibe. The fantastic, dupla credenza seen above is a favourite of mine! It would add some much needed style to my home's main living space. And oh my.... have you seen the modular botao sectional sofa? The bold, comfortable and inviting style of this customizable piece is fantastic!
So once again, be sure to enter the CB2 and Novogratz Brasil Sweepstakes before time is up. Someone is going to win... why not you?

Hi SaltTree Readers! My name is Emily and I am so excited to be guest posting today. I blog over at Love, Pasta and a Tool Belt. My husband and I were married almost a year ago and we started our blog to keep in touch with family. Since then, I have discovered how much I love creating and sharing. I blog about recipes, DIY craft projects, home decor and improvement projects we are doing.
