3 Gorgeous Porches - Places To Dream....

I'd love to have a beautiful porch like any of these....

Those 'tree chairs', small log side table, and large wooden coffee table in the second picture are so rustic and textural. I love them! So soothing.

We all need a place to dream and relax. :)

Guest Post: DIY Vertical Garden Wall

I have always wanted to make one a vertical garden wall! Thanks to this guest post from Bridgman, I might be attempting this project this weekend! Enjoy!

Create your own vertical garden using a wooden shipping pallet.

If you love nothing more than exciting and innovative home projects, then creating a vertical garden is a fun and creative way of maximising growing space in your home. Made popular by Patrick Blanc, the famed French botanist, vertical gardening is increasingly being used on buildings across the world to bring greenery into urban spaces. However, you don’t have to build a vertical garden on a vast scale, and with only a wooden pallet, some plants, planting soil, and a few tools you can create your own unique garden wall at home.

This project is ideal if you’re short of space but still want to grow flowers and foliage. Succulents and herbs work wonderfully in a homemade vertical garden, as do many flowering plants such as petunias and lobelia. After only a few hours work and two weeks to allow the plants to settle, you can brighten up any wall in no time at all.

If you would like to create your own vertical garden at home, simply follow these simple instructions put together by Bridgman.

may or may not.

I may or may not be a bit  head over heels for the olympics 

Jude may or may not call the American flag "the rocky flag" b/c of Apollo's shorts in Rocky II (?)

My favorite part of the opening ceremonies may or may not have been Sir Paul signing Hey Jude.

The part of the song that goes "JUDE JUDE JUDIE JUDE JUDIE JUDIE" may or may not be our favorite.

I may or may not have watched more sports in the last 2 days than I have in the the last 2 years.

Anything you may or may not be up to?

Bath, and Secret Storage

After all the changes to the AG Home Goods site I finally have some time to get back to doing the things I love, blogging and sharing with all of you, new exciting finds, rediscoveries, or trendy modern stuff I happen to love.. 

Enjoy the pics and Post...

Emphasize your windows

Even if you have blinds on your windows, there are still things that you can do to decorate the area. Why have a perfectly garnished room and then fall short on window treatments? Your windows welcome in sunlight, fresh air and energy so they should be emphasized, not hidden!
Panels Can be Fun

Traditional panel curtains certainly don’t have to be boring. You can always pull them to one side with tiebacks that are elegant or patterned and vibrant, whatever works for your room! Alternatively, you can buy a stencil and fabric paint and add a little personalization to them.
Framing the Window

Just because you go for the classic, framed look, doesn’t mean you can’t add an extra rod or two and layer up your treatments with different prints and fabrics.
Work With Blinds

Side panels, swags and even just extra long sheer tiers can be draped loosely to highlight the area. Also, keep in mind if you buy blinds direct in the UK or US, there are many made from pretty attractive materials today so they don’t have to be ordinary.
Let the Fabric Flow

There are no rules when you work with fabric. Layer or twist pieces and let them just coexist harmoniously. Shake off that rigid structure you have grown up with and invite something fresh and carefree into your space!

Bath as a pleasurable experience..

Given the bathtub is such a large fixture, its impact on the look and feel of your bathroom is significant. So why settle for an everyday looking bath when there are baths available that are stunning works of art? Whether it’s a modern aesthetic you prefer or something thoroughly royal, nowadays there are enough beautiful baths to choose from that you’re certain to find one that fits your home decor perfectly. Let’s take a look at a handful of outstanding bath designs for a good dose of inspiration.

Freestanding baths have a special elegance that is hard to match and they set a warm mood within the room. Consider this magnificent slipper bath with its traditional roll top and white claw feet. Seen here with classic vintage style taps, alternatively you could opt for a floorstanding tap set for that extra touch of elegance. Claw feet come in a wide range of finishes such as antique gold, chrome or raw cast iron.

For a more modern take on a freestanding bath, look for tubs with sleek sharp lines such as this spectacular bath finished in contrasting black and white. This ever-popular minimalist style does indeed bring a sense of calm and spaciousness to the room promoting complete relaxation and enjoyment, which I’m sure we could all do with a lot more of!

Envisage yourself immersed in this handcrafted regal cast iron bath finished in gold, complete with stunning vintage style taps and book stand. Baths such as this add a tremendous sense of beauty to the room and make for an amazing focal point that will be appreciated by you and your guests. How could anyone not enjoy such an indulgent bathing experience! And the good news is that majestic baths aren’t as expensive as one might think. Look to online bathroom supplies stores for impressive deals on baths and enclosures and be sure to check delivery fees not just the cost of the bath itself.

If you’re asking ”But where’s the bling?” look no further than this truly spectacular double ended slipper bath. You can decorate your bath in a similar way with your own personal artistic style. Many cast iron baths come finished in grey primer ready for your choice of colour, from there it’s just a matter of choosing additional decorative elements to embellish your bath with. Before you know it you’ll have a bath that doubles as a work of art and a luxurious place to bathe – what more could you ask for than that?

Bathtubs come in all shapes and sizes and with a variety of different features such as built in jet systems, tubs big enough for two, steam baths, corner baths and the list goes on. There’s a tub to suit everyone’s taste and budget so add a spectacular tub to your home and transform your bathroom into an opulent spa-like retreat that you can enjoy day in and day out. After all, you deserve a sanctuary of your own to escape to at the end of your busy day.

 Trendy Storage Options

Like most people, it’s quite common to have books, DVD’s and LP’s falling this way and that out of crevices, cupboards and covering coffee tables all over the house. If you have just moved home, or are in the process of moving, the problem of having all your personal possessions spread throughout the house or flat can be quite frustrating. Speak to any graduate who has had to move once a year for the past four years; the stress of having enough room will certainly not be lost on them!
So what storage options are there in the world? Besides your average bookshelves, newspaper holders and garage doors hiding your prized possessions, there are a plethora of gadgets, groovy cabinets and expensive storage units which you can utilize for your home or flat or you could just choose to stick with the traditional option and throw everything in your garage and you can check out the garage door trends at ABI garage doors.

Nightstand Fridge

For those of you out there who want to hide your favorite beer from ensuing friends during a house party, the Nightstand Fridge could be the perfect tool for not only cooling your favoured beverage, but also hiding it from thirsty tongues. Available in three differing designs, the nightstand is made to fit a whole range of decors and home designs. Though currently only available in the United States, you may have to pay a few more cents to get your $379’s of fridge to the United Kingdom.

Spiral Wine Cellar

Continuing with the theme of alcohol, the Spiral Wine Cellar is the perfect solution for storing your masses of wine from the more conventional methods, such as boring old wine racks and holders. With your own chic wine cellar you will become the king of parties with sleek glass doors leading the way into a world of fine wine and alcohol. For example, one cellar can hold up to 1,900 bottles and needs not one iota of electricity to run, as the surrounding earth and ingenious air flow systems provide the perfect conditions for your cache!

Underground Garage

If you want to think big, then the underground garage system may be just what you’re looking for. If you’ve just managed to get hold of your dream car or motorbike, or just want to show off (why wouldn’t you?), then the underground garage provides the perfect security solution to keep your vehicle tucked away beneath the ground. Amazingly, all it takes is the single click of a button and your car will rise proudly out of your driveway, much like the old Batman programmes you enjoyed in your childhood!

Hidden Door

Okay, so more of a door than a bookshelf, but it is the combination of the two entities which makes the hidden door to the list of trendy storage options. With the option of faux books if you’re not a big reader, a hidden door into another or secret room is a great security option besides an excellent tool for scaring or pranking your friends with! Available for both domestic and commercial purposes, the hidden door could be your secret gateway into your own gaming room, study or just a place to sit and relax.

Simply amazing.. Hope all of you enjoyed

Dear lyla,

You have these cute little pink striped pajamas, dad says it looks like you broke out of pink prison.

Speaking of dad, you like to sit in his arms and watch the Cardinals and golf...He is very hopeful you will watch football with him this fall.

You love to laugh at Elisabeth, sometimes if you can't be held you cry... Elisabeth sings and you stop.

You don't laugh at Jude...ever...he tries but you must not think he is funny.

You are quickly learning the art of fashion, playing princess, making cookies, and sleeping through noise. Your also the first baby in our house who isn't scared of the vacuum. 

You have been sleeping through the night for 6 weeks now ... 9 pm to 8am.

You suck your 2 middle fingers ... like a rockstar...I have tried to take your fingers out and give you a pacifier instead...but you just spit the pacifier out and cram your fingers back in your mouth.

We love you so much little lady lovely locks.

The 7 Simple Steps To New Office Furniture

With any new purchase necessary steps must be taken to ensure quality, professionalism, and value. When it comes to office furniture there is no difference. In today's post we will discuss the 7 vital steps necessary to acquire office furniture with ease. By following these steps you will ensure a pleasant shopping and installation experience with minimal headaches!

Step 1: Space Planning

As with most projects the first step is typically space planning. This step is the most important and deserves your full attention! To properly plan for the addition of new office furniture you space must first be measured properly to ensure a perfect fit. While this step sounds relatively simple, don't forget to mark where your power outlets are! It never hurts to make a simple elementary drawing of your furniture layout ideas for reference. Be sure to leave ample leg room, space for storage cabinets, and other accessories you may consider adding later. It's important to remember that space is at a premium. When space planning take note of any wall curves, lighting fixtures, or protruding objects that may hinder your layout. Once you've measured once, go back and check your dimensions one more just to be safe. Trust us... there is nothing worse than ordering your dream furniture only to find out that it just doesn't fit properly. Most of these issues are totally avoidable by simply measuring and planning properly!

Step 2: Shopping

Everyone's favorite step in the process seems to be shopping, and for good reason! Shopping is fun! When shopping for new office furniture the best place to start is online. The best terms to use while searching are typically the most specific ones. For example, if I have a modern home that is upscale I would search "modern executive office furniture". If I was outfitting an office on a budget I would search "discount business office furniture". Being specific can save you time and money.

Once you have identified a type and style of furniture to meet your needs (and fit your space), contact the dealer. If you are unsure of your purchase they may be able to provide color swatches, an opinion on the product, or even schedule a time for you to visit a showroom. By calling the dealer you also have the ability to inquire about shipping times, additional discounts, and so forth. For that reason our number one tip in this post is to always call before purchasing!

Step 3: Purchasing

Once you have shopped around online and compared you prices it will be time to make a purchase. As we've said previously it never hurts to call and ask for an additional discount. If none are available do a quick search for coupons and determine the absolute best value. Remember, customer service does count! Lastly, make your purchase and notate to your dealer that you would like an invoice, tracking number, and any order details as soon as possible. Being prepared can really help you for step 4.

Step 4: Shipping

Once your furniture is purchase the dealer will send your order to the manufacturer. In order to save you money and provide free shipping most furniture dealers do not stock products. They in turn ship directly from the manufacturers closest shipping point to you. This cuts down on lead times and your costs! Make sure before your item ships to give you dealer all of the necessary information to get your items to you without hassle. Factors like what floor you are on, if you accept curbside delivery, if you require inside delivery, if you require a lift gate or assistance to remove your products from the truck, can all affect the time and cost of delivery. Being upfront and efficient from the start can really save both you and your dealer time. Commonly you will need to set up a specific arrival date to ensure you can meet the truck to receive your furniture. Make sure you request this as soon as possible along with a 24 hour call before. Other than that, your shipping should be a breeze!

Step 5: Prepping

Once you receive your tracking number and shipping information from the dealer you will have a few days to prepare and prep your space. Make sure to clear a path to your new office. Office furniture typically ships in large rectangular boxes that can be cumbersome if a clear path is not available. Having a plan is truly essential. If your products are larger. It might be best to stage your boxes in the living room or warehouse of your office or residence. Tape a bit of cardboard over all corners to ensure safety and no wall boo boos. Another great tip is to pic up some furniture sliders from your local hardware store. These can really save you some back pain if you purchased larger office furniture.

Step 6: Receiving

By the time you are done prepping you space you should be receiving your 24 hour call before delivery. Typically the freight company will provide a 3 to 4 hour window of arrival. If you have requested and paid for inside delivery be sure to instruct the driver which door you want the furniture delivered through. If you are accepting curbside delivery ensure that you have the necessary man power to remove your items safely and securely. Receiving will go smoothly if you prepare and communicate with the driver. Be sure to inspect your packages thoroughly for any damage. If you for some reason notice damage, don't feel bad refusing the shipment. In fact, it's the professional and correct thing to do. Typically this is the exception and not the rule. More common than not the receiving of furniture goes extremely well.

Step 7: Installation

Believe it or not most office furniture is quite simple to install. Since most orders consist of a few chairs or executive desk packages it is recommended that you try to build out the furniture yourself. Typically 2 people can handle jobs of this size in a day. Tacking this task with a friend can save you hundreds and hundreds of dollars. For larger jobs however, installation is unavoidable. Typically your dealer will have a trusted network of furniture installers and can even arrange for your products to be delivered and installed on the same day if handled before hand. Installation will be an additional charge and should be budgeted for. Once your furniture is installed the debris from the boxes and packing materials will be removed and discarded properly. Now it's time to enjoy your new furniture!

Last but not least take a seat. Kick back, relax, and enjoy your new purchase. You've done it. By following these 7 simple steps and preparing yourself properly, you have successfully purchased and outfitted your office or home with new furniture.
