How To Build An Outdoor Fireplace (& Save $1,000’s)

An outdoor fireplace can be both a beautiful and functional asset – plus add value to a home. It provides the perfect focal point for entertaining, and it offers warmth at the same time.

Not only that, but outdoor fireplaces can instantly upgrade the sophistication of a patio. When positioned right, they can extend the usable square footage of your home outward – making it appear that your home is larger.

When you look at it this way, permanent stone fireplaces are more of an “investment” in your property, because when you go to sell your home, the increased value

Scandinavian-Style Living Room Design Inspiration

At the first sign of cooler weather, our homes enter their own form of hibernation. Out comes the chunky knit throw and the candles. We surround ourselves with more lighting and greenery to make up for the dwindling daylight hours and barren trees outside our window. We also, naturally, retreat to one of the coziest places in the home: the living room.

When looking for pointers on how to cozy up a space, look no further than Scandinavia⁠—the area of the globe comprised of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The tenants of Scandinavian design are largely intuitive. Scandinavians create bright, airy

New Living Rooms for Everyday Life

By its name alone, the living room sounds like a comfortable repose for all. But with open floor plans and busy lives defining factors for many Americans, this shared public space often epitomizes the struggle between enjoying real life and keeping a home prim and ready for visitors. A family room or even a kitchen with seating can be too large, open, busy, and associated with entertaining guests. That’s why many seek an alternative space in which to unwind together.

Design right – GOV.UK

‘Design right’ automatically protects your design for 10 years after it was first sold or 15 years after it was created – whichever is earliest.

You can use it to stop someone copying your design.

Design right only applies to the shape and configuration (how different parts of a design are arranged together) of objects.

You can also register your design for better protection provided it meets the eligibility criteria.

You must register a design to protect 2-dimensional designs such as graphics, textiles and wallpaper.

Peeping inside celebrities homes has become the new must-watch TV

Trevor Noah, who has been broadcasting from a desk inside his Manhattan apartment amid the coronavirus pandemic, kicked off his Tuesday night edition of “The Daily Social Distancing Show” by addressing the many people who have emailed him to ask about his taste in objects and art.
“I’ve been getting a lot of questions from you online asking about things behind me. The other day people asked me why the plant was dying, so I’ve replaced it now,” he quipped.

He’s filled his space with art and books, like “Wild Beautiful Places,” a National Geographic photography book featuring shots from … Read More

New Kitchen Sink — More Functionality

I’ve finally managed to find my perfect kitchen sink. It took some time as I had to define all the functions I needed to demand from this hugely important work center. Because of the limited space, the sink needed to do everything from washing dishes to washing the dog. I also repot plants and wash hand laundry in the kitchen. I don’t like splashing so it needed to be deep and I needed a pull out faucet to rinse the corgi, who is not a happy camper if I fail

You walk beneath a white molded archway. You’ve entered a white room.

A basketlike lamp hangs overhead; other lamps, globes of brass and glass, glow nearby. Before you is a couch, neatly tufted and boxy, padded with an assortment of pillows in muted geometric designs. Circles of faded terra-cotta and pale yellow; mint-green and mustard confetti; white, with black half-circles and two little dots — aha. Those are boobs. You look down. Upon the terrazzo
