Scarlet Beauty Sweetspire
For summer bloom, turn to native, easy-care shrub sweetspire. Scarlet Beauty sweetspire (Itea virginica ‘Morton’) unfurls long white flower clusters mid-June to early July, flooding summer days and nights with luxurious fragrance. Blossoms buzz with pollinator activity, including bees, butterflies and beneficial insects. This is a must-have plant for wildlife gardens. The fall color season unfolds slowly with leaves in shades of vibrant scarlet-reds and deep oranges that hit their peak in early November. Plants thrive in sun to shade, tolerate moist soil and grow 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Hardy in Zones 4-9. Good to know: If pruning is needed, do so immediately after flowering, before blossom buds form on mature stems. In early spring, remove any stems that fail to leaf out.

Bunk Beds, Model Airplane Display Set the Stage for Fun Sleepovers
A pair of bunk beds makes this the perfect spot for sleepovers. A fun black-and-white pattern is carried from the triangle wall decals to the graphic-print bedspreads and white, Danish-style furniture. Model airplanes are hung in a group from the ceiling to give this kids' room its own mini airshow.
Antique Wooden Oars Used as Art in Neutral Living Space
A set of antique wooden oars hangs as artwork on one wall of this living room, representing the family’s love of the outdoors and being on the water. A sectional sofa with a chaise at one end is covered in a durable, family-friendly fabric. Graphic textiles provide visual punch.
Midcentury Modern Dining Room With Tiered Chandelier
This dining room features a number of midcentury modern elements such as the wooden wishbone dining chairs and the tiered chandelier. The space features a wood floor and wooden china cabinet, and an orange "Brooklyn Map" representing the owners' former residence adorns the wall.
The vintage feel of this kitchen was preserved thanks in large part to the '50s style refrigerator, while Mediterranean tile lines the walls. Mercury-glass mirrors were added to the cabinet doors in order to brighten the tiny space.
This sleek and spacious kitchen features white limestone floors paired with black cabinets and neutral countertops. A mosaic tile gray backsplash adds a bit of texture to the space and continues over to the wall that frames a large stainless steel refrigerator. A skylight provides a touch of natural light.
This minimalist white kitchen features neutral accents throughout, including the vast tiled ceiling and natural wood floors. A spacious island with a wine cooler and shelving provides an ideal area for food preparation and casual dining, while a frosted glass pantry provides ample storage space.
Color galore! The blues of the ocean and greens of grass make this eclectic kidtastic living room come alive. Vibrant modern art and boldly printed rug create a whimsical space. The comfy sofa is chock-full of patterned pillows that can change with the seasons.
Traditional Neutral Kitchen With White Coffered Ceiling
This open kitchen boasts two dining areas: a bar space and separate eat-in kitchen island. Three iron chandeliers hang across the room to visually separate the areas. Iron barstools with scroll-patterned chair backs contrast the white cabinetry and beautiful white coffered ceiling.
Eclectic Library Features Metallic Poufs, Unusual Table
A love of color and a collection of Suzani blankets inspired the palette and design of this eclectic library. A pair of classic wing chairs is perfectly sited to take advantage of lakeside views. Two shimmering garden stools sub as ottomans to bring in a bit of bling.
