Designers are just like everyone else.  We sneak in some weekend internet time to save photos of all kinds of inspiration for our homes.  We are trained, and have years of experience, that help us see things others might miss.  In our minds, there is always a “what if” churning.  Some concepts take time and money.  All good.  Plan the work and work the plan.  But what can we do now?  Personally,  I’ve found that small accomplishments in our home keep me motivated.  Something that can be done quickly, like “right now”!  Basically for sweat labor  free and make me feel like I have made a positive difference in our life.   Tall order…easy fix!

Do You Have A Wabi-Sabi Kitchen?

The Perfectly Imperfect Kitchen

Ikea Small Kitchen with Lots of Open Shelving

Kitchen projects are some of the most popular for everyone.  We all want our kitchens to be the best they can be.  It does not matter if you are a weekend DIYer, or have a full contracting crew to help you create the kitchen of your dreams….you will most likely have to deal with an element that is not quite “perfect”.

The “One In One Out” Rule To Staying Organized

A SIMPLE HABIT TO MAINTAIN THE LIFE YOU HAVE ORGANIZED

Boston-Fern-Costa-Farms

You didn’t save the ferns from last summer…did you?  Probably not.  If you did how many times did you sweep up those miserable tiny leaves?  To me, there are two perfect days in a Boston Fern’s life.  The day we proudly admire the porch ready for summer and the day we get to toss them in the trash!  It’s a love/hate relationship but one with a lesson.   It’s the One In One Out theory in reverse.
