When a Palo Alto, California, couple called on Danenberg Design to remodel their kitchen, little did they know the project would be the springboard that launched a whole house makeover. The homeowners were so enthused by the results of their kitchen, they asked the design firm to continue working on the house, including an overhaul of the master bath. The bath’s sleek Asian feel is punched up with a vibrant violet accent color, which has a direct correlation to the homeowner’s extensive art collection. “The wife has a contemporary art collection that incorporates vivid colors, so the violet wall took wing from the artwork,” said Lanny Danenberg, Danenberg Design.

HDTV is fast gaining popularity and it has now become a necessity in modern homes. These days nearly all major electronics companies are manufacturing HDTVs. During the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, several companies launched their new HDTVs. Here is a list of 10 best HDTVs unveiled at the 2012 CES.

My favorite was the Arts & Crafts Mission Double Door Bookcase, its Old World feel and glass paneling perfect for showcasing my collection. While preparing the new Arts & Crafts product pages for our site, as well as admiring the bookcases, I found myself delving into quite the history lesson.
The Arts & Crafts Crofter and Mission living room and office furniture collections gave me the chance to do a bit of research, and I was grateful for that. Certain contributors to the Arts and Crafts movement caught my attention, especially the late great Frank Lloyd Wright. T
