Not sure if this qualifies as a trend, but it was certainly a hugely popular motif. Birds, birds everywhere! Peacocks were the most common, but plenty of their avian friends made an appearance. A colorful, fun accessory with a naturalistic vibe can bring a little zing to your home. And that delightful little crow-foot table from Global Views? He (she?) is the perfect fit for my kitchen seating area — LOVE!

It's a little harder in New England given the weather, but many areas of the country really embrace three season and four season outdoor living. And it is so refreshing to see outdoor décor beyond the typical Adirondack chairs or big-box store plastic stacking chairs. If you had one (or more) of these beautiful elements gracing your patio or yard, wouldn't you be outside ALL the time?
This intriguing collection of ethanol-burning fireplaces is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor applications. No mess, no off-gassing, fab styling — what's not to love? Collection from the Australian company ecosmartfire.

This has been quite a week of rain and slush, so a great time to look into a pair of cute Wellies. Our modern Wellington boot is based on leather Hessian boots from the early 19th century. First popularized by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, they soon became fashionable among the British aristocracy.
You don’t wear them often, and when you do, it’s usually glum, rainy and muddy. So break away from sensible black shoes and go a little crazy with color and style. These are meant to be fun and bring a smile to your face!
