I always enjoy to write about gardening, diy projects, home decor and interior design.


  1. I really like the lighting above the TV that accents something different that what normal florescent or ceiling lights can do. It feels like the room is a lot warmer with some dark earthy colors, as well as the subdued lighting. I am wondering if an interior designer came up with this, or if someone did it themselves. I have no sense of style, so I think I would need a lot of help.

  2. I love decorating with scones.
