‘Kirigami’ ornamental oregano isn’t meant for the kitchen—it’s purely a garden delight with its colorful bracts and lightly fragrant flowers. In autumn’s cool nights, the rose-purple bracts on ‘Kirigami’ (Origanum x hybrid ‘Kirigami’) deepen in color. Look for this beauty in spring to grow all summer long and into fall. Or pick it up at garden centers in autumn to decorate outdoor spaces until hard frost arrives. This oregano is winter hardy in planting beds in Zones 5b-8b. Tuck it into the garden at least six weeks before hard frost to help ensure winter survival. Next spring, dig it and pot it, or enjoy its trailing stems in the garden.
Khloé Kardashian Odom and her husband LaMar Odom wanted a modern, family friendly place to enjoy their time together, so the Cousins on Call, Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, designed a room that would fit all of their needs. The cousins removed the outdated curtains that used to frame the Odoms' television and replaced them with custom shelving made from California redwood. They also placed California redwood throughout the home theater to bring local elements into the space. They then added tons of luxury seating, perfect for a growing family. In the back of the room, they added a candy dispenser for that real, movie theater feel.
The client wanted a room that reflected their boy's name, "Jonah" without being literal.

Tricks of the Trade:
1. How to Balance a Bold Pattern: Make sure your colors have a weight to it that can hold up to the bold pattern. Designer Karen Wolf used bright mid tones to balance the whales and also showcase them.
2. Why Red?: The black pattern called for a "power pop". The playful and strong red color was able to shine on its own in just right amounts in the room.
3. Sweet and Strong: A great mix for a room to grow. The sweet patterned window treatments are offset by the strong wallpaper.
4. Pattern Mixes: The dense wallpaper was mixed with a small window treatment print and open graphic with white field on the floor.
