I'm tired of crowded restaurants and cranky waiters, especially when I'm trying to set a romantic mood. I want to create the perfect at-home Valentine's Day meal for my wife, but Emeril I'm not. Any suggestions on how I can wow her without leaving home or going to culinary school?
We tend to love anything made of natural materials, like sisal, seagrass, linen, paper, etc. One of our latest loves is bamboo - we love anything and everything made of bamboo! It can be as simple as "lucky bamboo" placed in a vase ("lucky" bamboo is actually not bamboo at all, but is dracaena sanderana).
A few months ago, while I was still living in Texas, I was given one of the best compliments I had ever received regarding the decorating style of my home: "Nothing matches, but everything goes." When we relocated to the Santa Clarita Valley, I seized the opportunity and ended up selling almost all of my furniture so I could start all over again!
I'm having a party, but have no idea how to stock my bar. It would be so embarrassing to run out of drinks, but I don't want to go overboard, either. Help!
Feeling calm, cool and collected? Good - neither are we. In the impractical pursuit for Martha Stewart-esque perfection (without the jail time, of course) we've now moved on to Holiday Preparedness Check List - Part III. Procrastinators that we are, there are a few tasks we've yet to scratch off our personal lists, but we're well on our way to the least-stressful holiday season ever. Why don't you join us?
Flooring is often overlooked as a key ingredient to a finished room. While we won't suggest that you go out and have brand-new hand-scraped hardwood floors installed (although that would be great in an unlimited budget scenario), there are other unique options that are cost-effective and provide a truly desirable effect. Two of our favorite flooring options are both made of natural materials: seagrass and concrete.
So you've been living with the same wall color for years and yearn for a change, but you aren't quite prepared to paint your walls one of the latest new colors... What else can you do for a fresh look? Think beyond the walls - how about the ceiling or the trim?
Here we are again, trying to facilitate a stress-free holiday for all, including ourselves. If you didn't yet complete your list from last month (OK, we didn't either - but we came close!), we've included an update to catch you up to speed. Good luck!
