Have I mentioned that I was never really that into the color pink? Growing up I was very anti-pink. I felt I always wanted to be the opposite of what everyone thought should be girly. I didn’t like girly. Somewhere along the way after college, pink has grown on me. Although it’s still not my first choice for “feminine” colors, I don’t dislike it. And, I’ve found I like to combine it with other colors of the spectrum from brown to blue. So this week, I picked pink and green.

There’s something about Japanese furniture I like. It’s simple and beautiful at the same time. I’m also a big fan of tea and there are many cultures that are big on tea including the Japanese. They are so serious about tea that traditionally they have a dedicated area for tea ceremonies. Their tea houses can be a separate building from the rest of the house that houses a tea room called the chashitsu. You can read more about the tea houses on Wikipedia. I’d love to have a room in my home dedicated to tea where I could just sit, relax and enjoy with guest. So, with tea in mind and the Japanese, I decided to scour the internet for Japanese inspired tea rooms for this week’s inspiration design board. Read More »

I am a BIG ranch lover and when we were looking for a new home I told Gary, our realtor that ranches were high on my list of desirables…
Although I’m not the type to default pink whenever I think of little girls, I thought it would be nice to dedicate this week’s Living with Color to pink and white. It’s a nice and subtle combination for those that want color in their room, but not too much.
If you live in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. like we do, then you’re probably experiencing Summer in full swing. Hot. Humid. Hot. Humid. Humid. Did I say humid? With the weather these days, all we want to do is sit in the house and enjoy the A/C or go where there is A/C and save on your energy bill at home. But, don’t forget, you’re not the only one feeling the heat and humidity. Your lawn and garden – or in my case – lack thereof – are feeling pretty dehydrated also. Here are some tips we’ve gathered on maintaining your hard during this very warm weather.
