This month we’re focusing on what to do and where to go for those important occasions when your own home just isn’t big enough. Our feature on venue spaces, both in town and out of town, is a great starting point for planning your next event to remember.
Another way to get more space is to take it outside and our showcase on outdoor living covers the latest in kitchens and grills, decks, patios and shade covering. Hibachi grills are hot right now, and so are fire features, gaucho grills and wood-fired pizza ovens.
Summer is here and we’ve found some fabulous red, white and blue finds for entertaining and decorating; pair that with our oh-so-fab recipe and dining options and you’ve got everything you need to take the party from Father’s Day to the Fourth of July.
We’re putting the spotlight on an Oak Forest remodel that’s a lighting designer’s dream and an exotic update by Four Square Design Studio that perfectly merges the magic of Indonesia with a soft modernism.
Our intrepid designer in the field is back from Milan where she explored the latest in international design. From innovative techniques that conserve energy and use non-polluting materials — to the latest and greatest in bathrooms, including waterproof wallpaper — we’ve got you covered.
Over at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston they are showcasing experimental Dutch designer Joris Laarman this summer; read more about his cutting-edge designs in our calendar.
And for the ultimate in personalization, our product section covers fabrics, patterns and stencils. These bold designs and faux finishes are the perfect way to make your mark in a way that’s uniquely yours.
As the temperatures climb we’re all seeking a bit of shade and our gardening section has some great plant ideas for this hard-to-grow part of the yard.
Last but not least, our hearts go out to Troy who was rescued by the Houston SPCA and is on the road to recovery; this happy-go-lucky boy just wants someone to dote on him.
From our home to yours,
