Airdrie’s a great place to do business.

Alberta Venture Magazine has named Airdrie as one of our province’s Top 12 Great Communities for Business.

The November issue of the magazine which is an editorial authority on Alberta’s current business and entrepreneurial climate contained the Top 12 communities that have created a vibrant atmosphere for the private-sector.

Some of the criteria which communities must meet in the magazine’s view include:

Nothing dresses a wall like wallpaper.  Designers love it because it adds interest and style to every room of your home.  Wallpaper just might be the quick fix if you’re freshening up your home and preparing it to sell.  Many of today’s contemporary home stylists swear by it.

Invented in the early 1800s and made more popular with the advent of industrialization, wallpaper was a fixture in modern homes until late last century.  With paper’s tired designs and fussy application methods, consumers in the 1990s seemed to tire of it.
