When my husband and I were first married, we lived in Switzerland. Our gym had many relaxing pools and showers to soothe away the day’s stresses. Horizontal showers are now appearing in home spas, creating unique and restful home retreats. dornbracht.com

Laurie bell outdoor fabric fgas3v

Using outdoor fabrics inside is a perfect choice for Florida living, and with the new and amazing textures, patterns and colors, selection is almost unlimited. I am able to recommend neutrals for family room sofas without fearing spills, dirt or sand. Laurie Bell is a favorite outdoor fabric choice.

Waterfall kitchen countertop snvycs

Whether you’re using butcher block, granite, or solid surfaces, countertops and their design are becoming a focal point of the kitchen and bar areas. Multi levels with waterfall ends create unique features.

No more bathroom bar lights. Sparkling pendant lighting in front of the vanity mirror offers design and function. Here, a Currey & Co. regatta pendant with honeycomb glass provides ample light and a soft glow. Pair it with recessed lighting for a variety of light sources.

Cut corner rectangle lampshade hsesay

Lamp shades are an easy way to give an old lamp new life.  Choosing a custom-made shade with a matching fabric or using a pre-made one will change the room’s atmosphere and create interest. One popular shape is the cut corner rectangle, which gives you the width to fill the space, yet enables you to push the lamp towards the wall. It’s perfect for nightstands.
