In her free time, Valerie Varnuska of Westbury, NY, enjoys pursuing her many and varied hobbies. One of Valerie Varnuska’s interests is interior design.

Designing or redesigning the interior of your home can be a fun but intimidating job since many of your choices will have to last for years. The following three tips will help make your next interior design job a bit easier, whether you are redecorating one room or the entire house.

1. Hang a mirror on the correct wall. Mirrors reflect light, which can make your room brighter. Hanging a mirror directly opposite a window will reflect the light right back outside. Instead, place mirrors perpendicular to windows to help reflected light fill the room.

2. Use slip covers. A slip cover can make any sofa or chair match the color scheme of your room. By using slip covers, you won’t have to purchase new furniture, which saves you money. The covers also protect your furniture from dirt and stains.

3. Choose the paint last. With the plethora of paint colors available, choosing the color palette for your room can be difficult if the room hasn’t already been decorated. Once you know the furniture and accessories the room will contain, choosing an appropriate wall color will be much easier.


Planetary Scientists Suggest Venus Once Had an Ocean

An enthusiastic traveler with experience as a volunteer, Valerie Varnuska pursues a wide range of hobbies and interests in Westbury, NY. Among the interests that Valerie Varnuska pursues is astronomy, the area of science related to outer space and celestial objects.

In August 2017, an article on the Science News Magazine website revealed that researchers had discovered evidence that an ocean may have once existed on Venus. New research suggests that, despite having an atmosphere that is characterized by extreme heat, carbon dioxide, and large clouds of sulfuric acid, the planet may have had the potential to support life.

In order for a planet to support the kind of life that humans are familiar with, scientists state that it must have a solid surface upon which a stable liquid can form and ideal conditions with respect to temperature and atmospheric pressure. Because of Venus’ slow rate of rotation at 116 Earth days, scientists suggest that the temperature and pressure could have been right for the formation of an ocean around 715 million years ago. This news comes more than two years after researchers discovered evidence of a large ocean on Mars that may have spanned a fifth of the red planet’s surface.
