Frosted Glass Door Opens to Custom Closet
A frosted glass door with custom initials opens to a luxurious closet, featuring pink and metallic touches.
Upstairs Nursery Bedroom
The couple turned a small upstairs bedroom into a nursery to accommodate their growing family. The neutral colors make it a sweet place for a baby, while the light pouring in from the window and the chandelier on the ceiling makes the space light.
Stone Double Fireplace in Contemporary Master Bedroom
A double-sided stacked stone fireplace is a stunning focal point in the center of this elegant master bedroom. Comfortable chairs sit on one side for a cozy seating area, while a platform bed is situated between picturesque windows with beautiful views.
With a new baby girl in the family, Chip and his team were charged with the important job of making sure that the Howells' princess has the perfect palace. Chip and his team added complimentary colors, such as pink and purple, as well as multiple patterns and textures to make this place sugar and spice and everything nice for this baby girl. The luxurious crib and additional toy storage is a must have to help make the nursery clean and inviting.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the Purks' baby on the way. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim.
The plants lining the dining table are prototypes for an outdoor installation Paul is designing for the Brooklyn community. A graduate of Jamaica’s Edna Manley College Of Art in Kingston and the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, Paul remains fascinated by the sense of nature that he grew up around. Now in Brooklyn, he represents nature in his sculptural work.
‘Bronze Peacock’ Rodgersia
‘Bronze Peacock’ Rodgersia pinnata unfurls striking leaves in a part shade location with wet soil. Rodgersia is celebrated for its large, sculptural leaves. Count on these plants to make a strong architectural statement in any garden. Pink flowers appear on spikes in summer. Plants grow 20 to 24 inches tall by 24 to 28 inches wide. Hardy in Zones 5-8.
Tropicanna Canna In Three Colors
Give a boggy spot a splash of vivid color with a trio of cannas: Tropicanna, Tropicanna Gold and Tropicanna Black. These cannas unfurl striking leaves that boast a variety of vibrant tropical colors and patterns. Luxuriously large flowers accent the calypso colored leaves for an exotic show. Plants grow 4 to 6 feet tall. Hardy in Zones 7-11. Lift rhizomes in colder zones to store overwinter.
Outside, the unique details continue. Through the dining room, the brownstone reveals a large outdoor space, which Paul has designed in two parts. In the first, a sun porch boasts a series of Eames dining chairs around a simple and elegant wrought iron table. A series of Paul’s sculptures lines the table, displaying his continued fascination with nature, texture and unique shapes.
Crispy fried chicken and fresh-baked waffles come together to create a sweet and savory brunch dish. Gather the following ingredients: your favorite waffle batter mix (like buttermilk, sweet potato or apple cinnamon), 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, 1 cup plain flour, 1 tablespoon water, 2 eggs, salt and pepper and oil for frying.
The side table is actually a vintage painters' bench, which is low enough to the ground to work with the low-slung red Adirondack chairs. California-based DesignFix also used recycled rock gravel and string lights when designing this small side yard.
Think your little place can’t impress guests? It can once you demo the way you control your lights, coffee maker and even security cameras via app. The WeMo smart home system is ultra-slick and just as affordable: Pick your devices, and build it one switch, bulb and appliance at a time.
In warmer zones, the winter planting window is wide open. You can sow seeds for winter vegetable crops, like salad greens, radishes, carrots, onions, Swiss chard, English peas and kale.
When winter finally eases its grip on the earth, it’s tempting to run out and work in the garden. But you have to be careful. Working the soil too early, while it’s still soggy from winter rains, can leave big clumps of dirt that are almost impossible to break apart later. Planting too soon can also waste money, because many seeds and plants will perish if the ground is too cold.
