Looking to start a landscape lighting project but not sure where to begin? Don’t worry, you aren’t alone. With all the different types of outdoor lighting available, it can be hard to decide what kind of lights to put where, or even how many you need. Picking a porch light is one thing, but designing a whole back yard is something else entirely. Especially if you’ve opted out of
If you do a lot of evening entertaining, especially outdoors, adding landscape lighting is one of the best ways to immediately improve the look and feel of your back yard or patio. A little lighting can really go a long way, highlighting the best features of your home and garden that would otherwise be hidden at night. But there’s a particular art to stetting up lights that takes a little t
Last weekend I went to the Getty museum in Los Angeles and saw a doll of Andy Warhol in the gift shop. It would be so cool to decorate a bedroom or a living room with his artistic style in mind, and best of all place his adorable plush effigy on a funky corner chair. If you collect Warhol prints and other pop art, you might have a lot of fun revamping a room in a 1960s style. You could start colle
Has your bathroom ever felt more like a water closet? If you have a small bathroom – and I mean really small, like squeezing around your door small, not like “where will I put this hot tub” small – it can be hard to find a place to put all your basic bathroom stuff while keeping the room looking nice.

For bathers, the journey (the long soak, the relaxation) trumps the destination (merely getting clean). Now,
Have you ever wandered out into a summer rain? Not gotten stuck in a downpour without an umbrella or your galoshes, or had to trod home through a storm, but just stepped outside and turned your face up to the falling water? I have, and I love the feeling – so you can imagine how excited I was to hear that rain showers are starting to show up in homes as well as spas. What is a rain shower? T
If you’re looking remodel your bathroom, either a little or a lot, one of the most important things you’re going to have to consider is what type of sink you want to install. While getting the look you want (at the price you want!) should always be your first consideration, different kinds of sinks are better for different types of bathrooms – and some can be a lot harder to inst
They’re not lampshades for hobbit holes. They’re mini chandelier shades, used to dress up or soften the lighting of a chandelier. You can take them or leave them depending on what kind of gathering you’re hosting. Sometimes collectors of antique chandeliers notice that the shades are deteriorating and decide to replace them. You can see how cute they are on this Highlands chandel
The big tub with all the jets has everybody’s vote. It’s as simple as queen size bed versus king size. Nothing beats a spa with jets in the master bathroom. Bathtubs with jets have many restorative powers for people and pets. If your dog is allowed in the bathtub, the jets massage deep tissue and are very good for releasing stress and toxins. This is the Capella whirlpool from Jacuzzi.
