We are well and truly into 2013, we uncluttered while welcoming the new year, creating space for things to come, the kids are back at school and we have looked at colours for the year and design trends too! So what do we do with all this!

Decorating with the colour for 2013 is going to be great fun, particularly as no one seems to have really nailed just what colour emerald green is.
The year-end celebrations have come and gone and I hope you all enjoyed Christmas with friends and family, and would like to wish you all a very happy new year. It is time to welcome in the New Year and don’t be discouraged by the number 13 as 2013 may turn out to be a very good year, unhampered by predictions of the end of time!
Bringing a little bit of good cheer to your kitchen is indeed the first step towards getting ready for Christmas Day.
Do you decorate every room in your home at Christmas? Or are decorations confined to the rooms visitors are received: the lounge and dining room and perhaps the entrance hall.
A well-appointed kitchen not only defines an enviable lifestyle but goes a long way in contributing to a better way of living. What defines the ultimate kitchen is different for each person and so many factors come in to play, but I would imagine functionality is all important.
The kitchen is perhaps the most important room in the home, people are naturally drawn to the kitchen with its warmth and cooking smells, it is the room where the family gather at the beginning and end of each day. It has evolved beyond its traditional function as a room at the back of the house where food is prepared and cooked.
I have been following decorating ideas for patios and the outdoors on some of the more prestigious décor websites and literally drooling at some of the furniture featured on these sites.
Another dilemma, is it a porch or patio? And whatever happened to the good old stoep or veranda? When I was growing up we had stoeps and verandas, I don’t quite know when porches and patios came along.
Well, is it curtains or drapes? To be honest I am not very sure, but I am inclined to believe that “drapes” is rather an affected way of saying curtains!
