My new but mature garden was just featured in the Daily Herald-Home and Garden section last Sunday, July 22, 2012. A big thanks to Suzanne Deichl and Raul Valdivia for their collaboration in creating a gorgeous garden!

Look beyond your walls, floor and ceiling and consider the "air" or negative space in a room. Try hanging or as I like to say “floating” artwork or open shelves from the ceiling in front of a window in a living room or dining room.

I've always been fascinated by the names given to fabrics, furniture pieces, rugs, cars, pets and of course, babies! Whose job is it to name a fabric, a bowl, or wallpaper?!

I adore fireworks especially the ones that are different and unusual. My favorites include colors such purple, orange, green (gee, do the colors sound familiar?) and of course the ones that explode in multiples, one after another and on top of one another with each being a bit unique.
They're everywhere – rugs, walls, accessories, furniture. If you want to make a statement, choose a bold stripe! Whether you add two striped pillows, a striped floor covering or paint your walls in a stripe, be prepared for a BIG impact!
Small prints in design schemes are often overlooked as star performers, but many times take the prize for "best supporting role".

Father's Day takes me back to childhood memories of my dad and "HIS CHAIR"! When I think of him, my visual is always that he is planted in his chair watching sports or the 5:00 news, reading Time or National Geographic, and having a gin & tonic.
