The spacious, open design of this room makes for a grand look to the dining room. A rich wood dining table is surrounded by matching dining chairs below the wrought iron chandelier with small lamp shaded bulbs. Arched wood french doors let natural light into the room illuminating the built in neutral brick oven.
This modern open plan kitchen and living room is kept bright with plenty of white, clean lines and stainless steel appliances. The grey kitchen island, topped with white marble, coordinates with the grey sectional sofa. Square barstools with brass legs and white leather cushions create fashionable seats for dining casually. The ultramodern, multi-bulb ceiling light fixture adds a spot of special visual interest.
As seen on Rock the Block, HGTV star Jasmine Roth created a bright space for a dining room next to a custom-built island covered with Dolomite marble and Northern California Dark Walnut with seating for eight, to transform the kitchen and dining area of her house and “rock” it to the highest increase in market value to win season one of Rock The Block.
A cool, exposed-bulb light fixture, leather dining chairs, and vertical wall planters combine to create a bright, relaxed dining space in Jasmine's California casual style home.
Once your holiday amaryllis blooms, keep your plant in a room that’s on the cool side to help the flowers last longer, and give them bright light and evenly moist soil. When the flowers fade, cut back the stalks to just above the bulb, and let the leaves continue to grow. Water and fertilize throughout the next summer and,if you moved your amaryllis outdoors, bring it back in before frost. If your amaryllis dies back completely, it’s probably gone dormant; stop watering until new growth appears.
Gardeners in hardiness zones 9 and warmer can plant freesias in the fall. In other zones, freesias should go into the ground in spring; they’ll need to be dug and stored at the end of the growing season so they don’t perish in the cold. If you don't want to dig them back up, simply start over next year with fresh bulbs (technically, they’re corms). Freesias are usually inexpensive. Plant the corms 2” deep in soil that drains easily, and give them a spot that gets sun to light shade.
