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.
