How to create the perfect backyard

I love outdoor living and believe in making the best of your outdoor spaces. Editor, Derek B. Lotts of Smooth Decorator shares his tips on how to create the perfect backyard below. Who does not dream of having a secluded place in his or her backyard, a private corner where they can rest from the troubles of the world and prepare themselves for new challenges that await? If you are blessed with having a backyard that is roomy and private enough to create a nook in it, do not wait a second to start turning it into a great hang-out one. Here are several suggestions on how to do the job perfectly.

Pool
Relaxing in a pool after a long day at the office is in top 10 rejuvenating activities there are. Do not be immediately turned off by installation issues. Your pool does not have to be anything of large proportions. Nowadays, you can find practically any shape, size and depth and a lot of them are highly customizable. If you want to go all the way and add the tropical touch, landscaping is the key. Add palm trees, banana plants, and birds of paradise. If your space does not allow you to do landscaping due to concrete surroundings, use tree pots. Remember that there are different types of pool finishes. Polished colored quartz is the best if you want to achieve tropical aqua blue color.

Archers Hall opens it's doors at Millhouse

Archer's Hall has opened a stunning new store in Millhouse and I am so excited to visit! Julie Chalbaud visited and took some phenomenal photos which I have been fortunate enough to share. Their new store perfectly showcases the extraordinary talent of Monique and Terri Archer along with their team. The massive space has been designed so that there are distinct living areas with both indoor and outdoor furniture, dining spaces and detailed vignettes. Some of my favorite elements are the abundance of natural light and of course the exquisite furniture and accessories.
