Thank you for all of the comments. Sorry for not responding sooner! I agree, I like counter tops clutter free but I also like having things I use daily within easy reach. While I try to plan my menu there is always something I do not have right where I need it and canisters make those items readily accessible. Even though I thought I had enough counter space when I remodeled my home, it is amazing how fast you realize you never have enough space even with a 7'x 4.5' island. I do not have a set of canisters, rather I have one canister to hold flour and a smaller on at another area for my coffee beans. It doesn't take up much space and it adds just the right touch of decor my counter top needs.

Las Vegas Hotels, Thank you for your input. I do not think you will find too many people that would not agree with you that large hotels have beautiful patios, however, at the same time there is not too many people that have the budget the large hotels have either. IT is a great place to get ideas for what they would like their space to look like. The best outdoor furniture for your home is furniture where you can sit and relax and have nice conversations with friends and family.

I too, think wicker furniture looks good and it can be mixed in with various types of furniture and look completely natural. All weather wicker is meant to withstand weather conditions year round and is a reason you will see all weather wicker used in some of the finest resorts around the world. When you implement wicker in with your other outdoor furniture whether you have all wood or aluminum or cast iron it gives a warm feeling to your surroundings.

Thank you for your kind comment!! :) The tapestries are a great alternative to traditional wall decor. I love the softness they bring to the room and regardless of your decor style and taste you can find one that coordinates with your room and your personality. I believe the wall decor and tapestries will pick up with the economy. While people are focusing on their needs right now, decor is picking up as more people are staying at and entertaining at home. Again, thanks for your comment and for reading the blog, our readers are our number one focus!!

Thanks for all the comments!! I like them all and would want teak in my backyard as it is so sturdy and takes very little to care for. Some people like it to weather to a gray but I like to warm wood color with bright cushions. I also like the aluminum furniture available but depending on where it is placed or where you live aluminum could be too lightweight if you have heavy winds. Wrought iron is beautiful and like teak really makes a statement whether you choose to add cushions or show the detail work. For me personally, wrought iron would be something I would use as a focal point or as extra seating as it is very heavy and hard to move around. While I've never been a big wicker lover,only because my mother had it when we were younger and we always picked at it and got in trouble. However, I do like a lot of the newer all weather wicker sets that are available and the easy maintenance, when paired with the right cushions it has a very sophisticated look. A lot of our clients like the versatility of using it both indoors and outdoors. Berri

Sue, I do enjoy going out once in awhile, but being able to spend time with my children and entertain at the same time is wonderful. I want people to feel comfortable in my home and I like to use lots of different serving pieces. Many people are starting to entertain at home again like they did 30 years ago and I love it!! Thanks for your post!!

Sue, I like soft towels too! The most important aspect of a towel is how absorbent it is. I have had beautiful towels that were only good for looks as they didn't dry you. I think that spending money on quality towels gives a better return on your money and don't have to be replaced as often. I have decorative towels and ones we use on a daily basis and I use both the bath sheets and towels, I love the look of towels in the bath, folded, rolled up it just makes the bath feel inviting and warm. Thanks for your post!

Krisha, Glad you like the jewelry armoire, it is perfect even for younger girls just getting their first pieces of jewelry as it is not as big as other jewelry cabinets. Berri
