Although April showers tend to dampen the backyards of our lovely abodes, they also have the habit of highlighting the overlooked coves that are begging for our home improvement attention. Your exterior landscape should not just be an escape from your adorned dwelling; it should be an oasis of relaxation, imagination and entertainment. So you don't have a ton of space to work with, there are so many opportunities in the SCV that limiting yourself to a paddle pool and palm tree is no longer a viable scapegoat. Oh, and did we mention that revamping your landscape is one of the best ways to increase the value of your home, and all of you homeowners recognize the significance of that!
In the eight years that Kinley Farrow has lived in her Happy Valley home, she's managed to create 2,500 square feet of pure designer bliss. From hand-beaded details on pillows to flawless faux-finished walls, her home is her personal work of art, a labor of love.
After digging through 100 entries and aligning together a Santa Clarita dream team of designers and contractors, Inside SCV Magazine was able to completely overhaul one family's master bedroom.
So you've decided to play host to out-of-town friends or relatives this holiday season... how nice of you! While you may be having fantasies of big family meals and fun outings, there's more to being a great host than food in the refrigerator and a filled social calendar. Of course you love your abode, but there may be some temporary changes that should be made to make your guests truly comfortable.

Have you noticed an Asian theme creeping into home decor recently? Blue and white ceramics overflowing with orchids, imitation bamboo candlesticks, even brightly-colored brocade diaper bags? As we all become a little more cosmopolitan - thanks perhaps to the Discovery Channel more than our travel budgets - we are moving away from a requirement for a home to follow a strict and distinctive decorating motif.
A stunning home is more than a lavish piece of property; it is an extension of the people that reside within. You can tell much about a family just by taking that first step through their French doors. With so much attention placed on the idea of modern luxury and sharp, distinctive home adornments, it is difficult to find a home furnished with natural, soft colors, rustic influence and antique-inspired furniture. Still, it's these qualities that make new homes feel lived-in, comfortable, nostalgic, safe.
Whether you're looking to completely revamp your home, redecorate a room, or just add a few finishing touches, Santa Clarita's local businesses have what it takes to get the job done.
H & G Tip #21: Just Add Water
Impress your neighbors - have the guy that did Oprah's Santa Barbara estate's pool do yours, too. Whether you choose imported Italian tile or opt for a more traditional design, one thing is certain: You live in a desert. Don't go through one more SCV summer pool-less.
Whether your planned holiday menus are opulent or simple, incorporating the richest colors and textures of the season on your table will make your dinner a memorable one. Business partners Cynthia Piana and Lori Souza of Piana Designs (702-9490), the creators of this inviting look for the home, were kind enough to share their tips on dressing the perfect holiday table.
