    Ways to Work With Purple

    Purple. Few colors cause such visceral reactions. Either you love purple and must surround yourself with it or you detest it. And I would say that most people, whether they like purple or not, are scared of using this color.

    If done correctly, though, purple can imbue a space with much-needed color and a level of richness few other colors can achieve. It can be a good balance against brighter, warmer colors and, in the right shade, can even play the role of a neutral.

    The key is to use purple in just the right tone and amount, and with other colors that play off the its natural depth. In this idea-book, we'll focus on the deeper tones of purple, such as plum, amethyst and eggplant ... more

    Reconsider Princely Purple

    The other day I was framing this fabulous cover of Ebony with the artist formerly and currently known as Prince on it and all of the sudden I wanted to design a room around it. Purple and I go way back; when I was a girl, pink and purple was my favorite color combination, and I haven't revisited good old purple (sans pink) since. It's been more than 25 years, so I think it's time to bring this regal hue back into my life. If you're thinking the same thing, here are some inspiring images to help us get back into it ... more

    Light Your Landscape for Drama and Function

    In the spectrum of home improvement, landscape lighting might be the most overlooked. It is, however, one of the least-obstructive design projects you can undertake. You won’t have to move out or do without the kitchen, be limited to the use of just one bathroom or be constantly cleaning up construction debris. Any work conveniently takes place outdoors.

    While the implementation of the project can be easier to cope with, the complexity and expense will vary greatly depending on your preferences. You may have a beautiful old oak tree in your front yard, and adding a strategically placed floodlight would be enough. Or you may have a large sloping site with many different elements that need attention, so you may want to involve a professional landscape architect ... more

    Landscape Lighting That Doesn’t Wake the Birds

    Lights in the landscape create light pollution that adversely affects nocturnal animals and migratory birds. Many animals rely on darkness as part of their habitat and behavior, and lights at night can disrupt their natural cycles. A concept called dark sky lighting is a movement to reduce light pollution produced by cities in order to protect wildlife and to create more visible stars in the night sky. You can play a part in reducing light pollution by using recommended fixtures for wildlife friendliness and designing your lighting with care ... more

    Key Entryway Dimensions for Homes

    Entrance areas are often given less priority when a home is being designed, but these spaces are just as important as any other. Not only do they provide an entry point and a transition from the elements of nature, but they are places your guests will likely remember most.

    Entrances also allow you to enter your domain and embrace your private life. For that they must let you remove a coat, take off shoes, set down mail, stow an umbrella, greet your friends or do any other activity that involves arriving at home. What is fascinating about them is that they can accomplish these tasks in grand or simple ways, either in scale or decoration ... more
