At the present moment, much of north-eastern North America is buried under one of the biggest snowfalls to hit in over 50 years. Much to the chagrin of home-owners throughout the region, that means a whole lot of shoveling.

Are you looking for a bamboo room divider for your Japanese themed room? There are many different styles, also known as shoji screens, that boast a strong and durable bamboo construction. Shoji screens feature a nice balance of two different types of hand woven panels that will add a rich texture to any home space.

It’s so beautiful when your patio or arbor is braided with plants! De Castelli presents a set of garden furniture called Celato’s Radici. ‘Radici’ means ‘roots’ in Italian so this furniture is to be overrun with plants.

We all like to be patriotic Americans, raise a flag and celebrate our Independence Day by roasting some hot dogs on the grill and watching the local fireworks display. While decorating for the Fourth of July is more than acceptable, it is possible to go a bit overboard. To prevent this, watch out for the signs of a Fourth of July gone wild.
