How many times do we hear, “There are just not enough hours in a day!” Who isn’t busy? It’s the way life is and most of us don’t want it any other way. However, we do want our homes to offer the calming, soothing sanctuaries we need to recharge. Let’s take a few clues from some Great Danes …they know how to do this!
THE BEST TUBS AND SHOWERS…WHAT ONE IS BEST FOR YOUR PERFECT LBD?
Bathroom projects are big. Every home has one and others have multiple baths. Except in rare cases, the bathrooms we get calls about are in functional condition…but that’s not all we want from the smallest rooms in our homes. Nope, we need them to be the rooms that transform us each day. Rooms that keep our kids happy and trick them into getting ready for bed. We long for them to be our private sanctuaries…a “Calgon take me away” spot. It’s a lot to ask of such small real estate.
CAN YOUR WEDDING DRESS REALLY INFLUENCE YOUR DECOR?
The popular TLC show, “Say Yes to the Dress”, goes behind-the-scenes at Kleinfeld’s bridal salon. The show reveals the challenges every staff member faces to make each bride utterly satisfied for the most important day of her life. You see the highs and lows each bride goes through to find her perfect wedding dress.
Whew! The price of a long holiday weekend is a short work week. Five days of work that need to somehow be crammed into four days. Harried at the least and leaving us all ready for a little down time. Maybe even an afternoon “nap”?
Outdoor spaces are all about being comfortable. Throw in a little “chic” and create the perfect LBD to soak up some sun. A spot to cool off in the shade is also a necessity to keep us all looking good for years to come! With pool or without….get ready for summertime!
NUMBER ONE WAY TO MAKE YOUR POOL LOOK ITS BEST THIS SEASON
Not planning on spending your entire summer in an exotic place getting pedicures in tubs of floating flowers? Don’t fret, neither are the rest of us but we still want our outdoor spaces to look great and make us feel like we are on vacation everyday!
10 TIMES OUR WARDROBES AND DECOR INFLUENCED EACH OTHER.
Genetically, we all have it — a left side and right side of our brain. The left side of our brain is the practical, analytical side while the right side of our brain is the creative, idealistic side. Designers, like the creatives in the fashion world, are constantly drinking in inspiration from each other’s work. But what comes first….the wardrobe or the decor?
Oregonlive ran this photo of a little guy finding a Dandelion in the aftermath of one of Haiti’s earthquakes. He is bursting with joy to give this humble flower to someone. I want to think it’s his mother, or maybe his Nana. Whoever is on the other end of this gift is someone very special. To a child, everyday is Mother’s Day.
QUICK WAYS TO GET YOUR OUTDOOR AREAS READY TO ROLL!
We are all hoping that the worst of the nasty weather is over. Mother Nature has poked her head out a few days with a smile on her face. We’ve had enough warm, sunny days to notice one thing….our patios are yucky! May is always a big month for occasions. Graduations, Mother’s Day and birthdays galore. Lot’s of guys can’t wait to get out the pressure washers to blow away the winter and set up the most important thing. The grill.
