In particular I’ll be showing you how you can incorporate them into your toilet and kitchen in a means which is logical for your taste and your property. Green is going to be a solid color for the new year with leaves, moss, earth, forest and blossom sprouting on Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, Behr and Yolo palettes, among others.

(I painted each the walls within my first condo sage and loved it. The master bedroom of my last home was home, too.) Below are a few ways to incorporate it into your kitchen and bathroom, sensibly and stylishly. Read bathroom remodeling…

Frame the View Using Divided-Light Windows

Some windows might feel just like pesky glass and framework obstructing a great view, while others are so stunning that they render the view secondary. Divided-light windows, also referred to as multi-light, fall into the latter category, in my own book. At a divided-light window, the panes of glass are separated and held by muntins — strips of metal or wood. Also referred to as glazing or sash pubs, muntins divide a single window sash or casement into a grid system of little panes of lights or”lites” (also known as glass). Multi-light windows came about because of the unavailability of large glass panes before and in the start of the industrial era. Little panes were cheap to make and easy to arrange in a grid (split by muntins) to create large windows and doors. Expensive homes were often outfitted with window panes laid out in ornamental patterns which reflected the…

'Pan Am' Inspires Flight Back into 1960s Style

Okay, I admit it. We have been seeing the new television show Pan Am. So what if the characters are not as developed and deeply flawed and the story isn’t is not as gripping as Mad Men? If for no other reason, I watch the series because the costumes and sets are wonderful. Let us face it, the 1960s were decade. Any era that was ushered in by Jackie and Camelot had to be! So let us bring back some of that ’60s optimism, that can-do spirit and that openness to do what is hard. This time around, let us keep an eye on the future and eschew the “throw away” for a sustainable approach.

Houzz Tour: A Urban Castle at Pasadena

Van-Martin Rowe added his own unique contribution to the rich architectural tradition of Pasadena, California, when he designed and built an”urban castle” for himself and his spouse, Barry Storch. The landscape and interior designer chose a nondescript two-bedroom, one-bath home and transformed it into a one-of-a-kind residence with details from the Mediterranean, Europe, Asia and Morocco. Inspired from the sequoia that has burst on the land for more than a century, Rowe envisioned a home having an indoor-outdoor sensibility along with a vertical accent, which more than doubled the present structure’s square footage. Fourteen-foot ceilings give mass to the spaces, without sacrificing livability or comfort. “I attempted to maintain it so that it lived just like a larger home,” he says. Van-Martin Rowe Two of the seven towers lend a fanciful air to the home, while a tall hedge guarantees privacy. Earth-toned textured stucco provides a link to the earth…

Kitchen of the Week: Warm, Cozy and Autumn-Inspired

Houzz consumer Ricki Vaughn of Decatur, Ill. always had a good idea of what her dream kitchen could look like — and before her remodel, the original kitchen just was not cutting it. The space was small, with hardly any cabinets and small counter space, making cooking and cleanup hard. The rustic landscape enclosing Vaughn’s home motivated a new kitchen palette predicated mostly on golden browns and grays found in nature. Warm hickory cabinetry was custom created, and an unpolished slate backsplash was installed on each wall. Vaughn also made certain that her kitchen needed just as much storage and prep area as possible. “It was like Christmas every day to see the shift in the kitchen,” she states. “I don’t even mind cooking today!” With the support of her builder, Craig Parker of KLC Remodeling, Vaughn tripled her cabinet and counter area. Customized cabinets house a pantry, trash drawers,…

Garden Tour: A Colorful Patio Blooms in the Arizona Desert

This Tuscon, Ariz. residence belongs to some vivacious couple who wanted a location where they can make the most of their retirement. “The customers had a big wish list,” says landscape designer Kathryn Prideaux. They wanted to create an actual outdoor living experience: pool, dining room, outdoor kitchen, fire feature, rest seat, and sunning area on the terrace. Already an ambitious endeavor, the job was complicated by the terrace’s limited space. “They weren’t really worried about just how much space they have, but rather how that space could be utilized,” says Prideaux. By carefully dividing the space according to function, she managed to check off every item on her customers’ want list. Prideaux Design The rear patio faces a stunning sunset view of a beautiful golf program. The contemporary built-in fireplace — surrounded by outdoor furniture out of Brown Jordan — was created by running one line of petrol into…
