Holiday Decorating

      Every year when it comes time to preparing for the upcoming holiday season, it seems that holiday decorating is at the top of most everyone’s list. Not only does it give you a break from the hectic shopping and general commotion that characterizes this time of year; it provides you with an opportunity to spruce up your home, inside and out, while spending time with friends and loved ones. For some people, `trimming the tree’ is the extent to which decorating is taken. However, there are so many additional ways to bring festivity to your home by incorporating natural elements to existing plantings and by bringing the outdoors in.

Designing an Outdoor Room

Due to the uncertainty in the real estate market, many clients we work with now choose to expand their current homes, rather than move to a larger house.  Rather than doing a traditional addition, one alternative is to add an outdoor room to your home.  An outdoor room essentially serves two purposes: it is an expansion of living space, and it allows its users to enjoy their outdoors.  This creates a transitional space, one that is part inside, part outside, and that can serve many purposes.
