What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? A few! Currently switching, depending on my mood, between Tim Jackson’s Prosperity without Growth (he has a great TED talk by the way) and Michael Ondaatje’s The English Patient, which is a favourite of my dad’s, so he’s chuffed I am finally reading it.5. What’s your favourite TED talk? An all time great and one that I always pass on to others is Jackson Katz – Violence Against Women: It’s a Men’s Issue. Heavy title I know, but just a genius argument and one that never fails to spark debate.

When you set out to choose your new hardware, take a moment to think about what you want it to accomplish. Obviously, you want it to look good and work well, so keep that in mind while you shop. Look for pieces that are well made and easy to clean. Ease of cleaning is definitely important for kitchen hardware, because it is going to be exposed to food spills and liquid spills and grubby hands. It is important that the pieces be well made, because they will see a lot of use in their lifetimes and you want them to hold up. And, of course, you want to choose something that fits in well with the decor of your kitchen. A warm, traditionally decorated kitchen would pair well with oil rubbed bronze knobs and pulls, and a contemporary and modern styled kitchen pairs well with stainless steel and other sleek metal hardware. Choose the pieces that suit you and your lifestyle best and you'll love what a difference your new hardware makes on your cabinets and your kitchen as a whole.

Most wall headboards act as the main focal point in a bedroom. Some give a unique look to your bed while others are used to provide functionality. For example a bookcase wall headboard would be a perfect choice for a small bedroom eliminating the need for a nightstand and giving you space for a reading lamp, books, glasses and a clock. Upholstered headboards are a great choice for comfort and luxury while a beautiful wrought iron headboard is a perfect choice for a Mediterranean or country style bedroom.
When it comes to wall headboard ideas, the options are only limited by your own imagination

Of course, any real project is going to have both hardscaping and 'softscaping' elements. Many hardscape design professionals started as traditional landscapers, so they can address both elements easily, but if you're working with a dedicated hardscaper, you may need to call in a more traditional landscape designer and have the two collaborate.
Once that decision is reached, it's time to design. Most people find that it's aesthetically pleasing to use the hardscape design elements to contrast either the building itself or the softscaped areas. As most modern houses are rigid, straight lines with somewhat visually harsh elements, hardscaping design professionals often suggest gentle, curved lines and rounded corners to contrast the house itself. In a natural, highly landscaped environment, however -- especially one that conceals the house from view -- it may be more effective to utilize straight lines and right angles to separate the hardscaping from the natural world around it.

When many think of grey, an image of a cloudy rainy day emerges and glumness spills in. The thought of putting grey into a bedroom make create these images, or the image of a very masculine bedroom with little in the way of soft furnishings and a lot of hard edged bedroom furniture. However, this article will show that grey is a great colour to have when used in the right way.
The type of bed that has upholstery on the bedstead, this will soften the impact of the bedroom furniture and also give the grey a soft area to reflect from. The bed linen should be a mixture of grey tones, but the key here is to put in a shocking colour, such as a hot pink, this will bring life into the bed and the contrasting tones will elevate the bedroom into a sophisticated area of the home.

High school and college graduations are looming on the horizon. These are special and momentous events for both you and your graduate. Planning you graduation party should be a fun and exciting project. Don't let your graduation party get lost in the crowd; with some early planning you can host a fabulous celebration. Here are some great tips to make your party one of a kind.
You can have it catered, you can cook or our family favorite for our barbeque theme is hamburgers, hot dogs and heroes. Add some salads, fruit platters and a graduation themed dessert and you have an easy, inexpensive menu. We set up a "stadium" food booth near the grill. My husband and his buddies were grilling to order, with the condiments and rolls set out at the booth. You make a poster and name your area. For example, at our party for our youngest who was going to DePaul University in Chicago.. we set up the "DePaul Dug Out" and decorated the table with the school colors. For our son, who was headed to Rutgers University, we had a "Knight Stand" as their school mascot is the Scarlet Knight. For another of our parties, I bought cases of bottled water, took off the store label and made my own personalized labels celebrating the graduates!
