Think outside of the box and, instead of traditional lighted trees, opt for more creative ways of embracing the season, like a snow machine, perhaps, or a candy cane-inspired signature cocktail.” Floral design: Blooming Gallery.
"We had been using our garage as a dumping ground for tools, lawn equipment, toys and discarded furniture for years," says designer Suzanne Dingley of Suzanne Dingley Interiors. But when her husband started his own business, the couple realized they had the perfect spot for a home office. They installed new windows, doors, floors, drywall, lights and insulation. "The garage had a peaked ceiling with rafters, which we chose to make a feature to bring some character to an otherwise rectangular box." Replacing the overhead garage door with two sets of French doors brought in light and charm.
