The Waterfront Location Acts as Inspiration for This Balboa Island, California Vacation Home
Accessible only by bridge or ferry, the quaint location provides a lovely escape for this couple and their company. “They wanted to use this as a hub to connect with their children and their eleven grandchildren,” says Blackband. “They had pretty clear visions of what they wanted to do, and I helped facilitate that.” For starters, the 3,200-square-foot Cape Cod–style structure had a number of walls removed to accommodate family get-togethers.

Designer SuzAnn Kletzien Unleashes Her Creativity on a Modern Chicago Condo
When designers start work on a project, it’s fairly typical for their clients to share big, personal dreams for their space. But when owner-designer SuzAnn Kletzien of SuzAnn Kletzien Design started working on a modern condo in Chicago’s Aqua Tower, she learned that her client was more interested in seeing where Kletzien’s creativity would go than sharing her own ideas. That client, an easy-going young professional, had just two requests for her living room design: incorporate the color blue, and use a sunburst mirror in the space.   Full Article: … (0 comments)

Create Custom, Natural Products for Your Hair and Skin 

When it comes to personal care products such as creams, lotions, shampoos, body wash, and even toothpaste, it can be a dangerous world out there. Some companies in the cosmetics industry use toxic chemicals, many of which are linked to cancer, infertility, or birth defects. It takes a savvy consumer with excellent vision to read the small print on an ingredient list, and a sound knowledge of the chemicals used to recognize when a cosmetic product may potentially damage your health.

Spring is truly an awakening. The first season of the New Year transforms the landscape into layered blankets of color. It’s a subtle celebration of longer and warmer days with fresh new produce arriving daily. Farmers’ markets and local farm stands start to open, and grocery store bins lined with fresh fruits and vegetables offer inspiration for a new season’s menu. Edible flowers come into season during spring. The floral accessory complements any course, but looks especially lovely atop a watercress and avocado salad that’s been laced with a subtle but vibrant lemon vinaigrette. Lamb chops and spring leeks are … (1 comments)

An Exotic Destination off the Coast of Southern California

Santa Catalina Island
In 1957, The Four Preps penned the enduring lyrics, “Twenty-six miles across sea, Santa Catalina is a-waitin’ for me. Santa Catalina, the island of romance.” Although the group’s measurements were slightly inaccurate (the island is only twenty-two miles from the mainland), the song reached number two on the charts and reignited interest in the Southern California locale. The island, known casually as Catalina, is still surrounded by a fog of romanticism. With the exotic charm of Capri and the easygoing attitude of the Florida Keys, it has … (0 comments)
