HELLO ALL! We are running a bit behind this evening - and I am going solo on this one tonight...Sue and I went out last night to record tonight's episode and we were just having so much fun sitting outside with other friends (and my darling husband) that we kinda forgot until it was waaaaaaay late and we were waaaaaaaay tired. Anyhoo.....I will be recording from a clients backyard tonight with images of her newly finished covered patio...you will also get to meet my weird friend Todd McAllister with On Stage...he is a total Rock Star! OK the....tune in at about 8 and we should be up and running...we apologize for any inconvenience! Have a lovely evening!

DESIGN TIP OF THE WEEK - 06/03/2009
FOR GOD’S SAKE – change your light bulbs! Replace your yellow-ish incandescent bulbs with 30% more efficient halogens. You will get clearer, brighter light that everything looks good in – without the sickly glow of fluorescent!

DESIGN TIP OF THE WEEK - 05/27/2009
TRAVEL! Expand your horizons, get out there and just see how it influences your taste in interiors. Just being exposed to other places can help you find your own style!
