The holidays are just ahead and we often succumb to "Party Panic".  We THINK it would be great to have friends over - something casual - a little food, great conversation - you know easy.

THEN WE LOOK AT PINTEREST, or HOUZZ, or just about any internet website for m...

It's been a weird, wet summer in New Jersey.  Windows open - windows closed.  AC and then AC off.

Windows.   They are an important element of our home and each individual room.  Air flow.  Natural light. Architecturally interesting or invisible.

Paint. 

Sometimes this one word can bring the whole project to a screeching halt.  Too often this one aspect of a design seems like the decision that makes or breaks the idea.
