I am ashamed to admit that, for the past 3 years, my landscape and yard has been accessorized with the standard solar light that is sold in every major retail chain across the country. I'm not proud. It was a purchase made out of necessity.
As I pulled weeds, trimmed branches, and raked mulch, the crew was hard at work building a beautiful new porch onto my home.
Now I need beautiful accent lighting to match my new, streamlined yard.
The Walkover Lighting by Roberto Paoli for Serralunga are fresh, modern, and my new favorite!

The hood gets skinny
Just when it seems that a high-end kitchen design couldn’t get any better, we see the eye sore: a massive range above the stove. To combat the epidemic of big, bulky ranges that somehow made it into our homes and restaurants for years, Ammunition Group teamed up with Zephyr to create the Arc Collection of tech-savvy devices that achieve the unthinkable in utility design.

Product designer Kaia Helene Lien Lisveen changed the shape of the traditional dresser and made it pop with the Peek-a-Boo Dresser.
The drawers are laminated with bamboo and the walls are painted white so that the trays are clearly presented and have a slightly different way to open the drawers.
This was exhibited at Design and Architecture Center in Oslo, June 2011 at the Akershus University College Graduate Exhibition 2011.

The Briva In-Sink Dishwasher by KitchenAid
I have died and gone to domestic heaven!
I unfortunatly am saddled with a small, poorly laid out kitchen. I'm lucky to have enough space for my dog's food and water dish, nevermind a dishwasher.
We are (and have been) remodeling our kitchen and have been looking for a new sink -- and then I found the ultimate holy grail. The KitchenAid stainless steel Briva in-sink dishwasher.
The Indoor/Outdoor Sakura Collection
If a furniture’s shape could be considered innovative, like the engineering of an automobile marking a clear progression from one year to the next, the Sakura Collection by Mark Robson for Sifas would be pegged as the Lamborghini Estoque of 2011. More for modern outdoor
It is sweltering in my neck of the woods - 97 degrees today. What's a better way to beat the heat than with a beautiful modern ceiling fan? Check them out!

Baby bedding that won't make you cringe
Tis the season???
I thought it was bad enough that bathing suits have been stripped from the shelves and replaced with school supplies, but now I am receiving emails for HOLIDAY, as in Christmas, decor and gifts. I full understand standard marketing practices, but how about Fall trends before we bust out the red and green?
In protest, I am gleefully introducing you to the Outdoor Hampton Bed and Umbrella. I would like to lay around on said bed. sipping a mojito, and shredding the incoming holiday catalogs. See all the new outdoor furniture at Advance Furniture.
