As the weather gets even colder I start turning up the heat inside. Below are some of my favorite modern fireplace designs. Vauni’s ethanol fireplace is free standing and the design is so beautiful and modern. Perfect for those who do not have the traditional flue or chimney in their house or apartment. They also have a room divider model too Another great designer is Focus whose fixtures are so impressive they are like works of art all on their own. A few […]
I love natural light and if your home is able to have skylights it just makes it seem so much more airy and is good for the psyche too. Not to mention some extra vitamin D. Below are my favorites ideas for having the sun shine through.
Some houses and apartments have an extra space often referred to as a “nook”. It’s a space not quite large enough for a bedroom, and it usually has an open doorway so its not a good space for storage of boxes, but it is a great space for a variety of uses. A lot of these areas are just off the kitchen and are referred to as” breakfast nooks”. Not quite large enough for a dining table, but definitely enough space for […]
If you don’t have much space these vertical vegetable gardens may be the way to go. How cute are those baby lettuces? What a creative use of old paint cans! Wonderful use of the side of the house with these gutter-type shelves. This sweet rustic garden looks so yummy! Beautifully laid out beds and pathways. So lush and green! Looks like a dream…. Last but not least is Martha Stewart’s herb garden that reminds me of an old French manicured garden. […]

Here are some of my favorite images of bedrooms. The lighting, colors and amazing decor along with a soft cozy looking bed is what attracted me to these. Enjoy! Loving the warm tones from all that wood and sunlight streaming through. Cannot resist a room with a fireplace, sooo cozy! Another great example of how warm and inviting all wood can be. This is more an outdoor type bedroom, but it is still divine. A neutral toned room, but still […]
I love to swim, but have no access to a pool at the moment. I will just have to be satisfied with beautiful images instead. Below are a few examples of some gorgeous swimming holes. A small version of an infinity pool (water disappears over the edge), but I love the amazing views in this backyard! Another small sized pool, but the patio complete with lounge bed is just beautiful. Again, the great use of space for this modern design […]
I have a shared backyard at my apartment complex, but dream of an outside space that could be designed anyway I like….below are some fun and creative ideas I’ve found to share. Starting with a small apartment balcony or deck I love this image of a cute garden bench and how cozy yet tidy it is. Another good use of space is this wall garden. Colorful and modern, its a great idea if you want to grow plants, and have no floor […]
Here are my choices this week for home offices that have amazing organization and use of space. Starting with the smallest spaces or “nooks” this closet-sized office looks really neat. Next up are larger spaces, but still cozy. I’m loving the built in cabinets below. I would love a crafting area like this one! And now on to the larger and more spacious home office spaces, and a couple outdoor spaces too!
