  • 1950's Ranch Landscape Ideas, This is our home, a split level ranch, purchased in 2007, located in Warwick, RI. I've done a few small, DIY low budget improvements: painted shutters from a fuschia to this dark blue, removed overgrown bushes, added window boxes, brass mailbox, painted the old worn post light white and wired on a new light fixture, new brass house numbers, flag and new front door. This year we are hoping to add a walkway, possibly pavers or concrete, and some shrubs/flowers. I had thought about doing a small 1 1/2 foot retaining wall to make some flower beds in front of the house (split in 2 sections by the front stairs) but was unsure how it would look and how much it would cost. Suggestions welcome! , Home Exterior Design

  • Garden Wedding Site, The front bed is 150 - 200 ft. long and an L-shape.  It features MANY peonies and other asst. perennials and shrubs.   We live in Kansas in a small rural town of only 350 people.  Our home sits on 10 acres.  Since our yard is 90% shade it's really quite comfortable in the summer heat.  A  young couple from here in town will be using our yard as their wedding site mid-August  We're getting ready to pour a new front sidewalk., Gardens Design

  • Cottage Country, This is my home in the high desert. Stucco exterior is used here most often. But I love the cottage feel so with the edition of shutters and flower boxes and a street lamp and some yard art I think I got it. I only wish I had the money to make the front patio a real porch with railing. Someday maybe., Home Exterior Design

  • Tropical "Staycation" in Sunny Florida, We have almost finally completed the renovation of our backyard "staycation" patio area, to enjoy in sunny Florida.  We live in a gated subdivision where unfortunatly our lot backs to another street with houses.  We wanted to make our backyard area a place we could use as an extension to our house.  One of our main concerns was adding pricacy for ourselves, and also the neighbors that directly back to our house.  I think we've finally achieved our goal.  The only thing remaining is to add lights for the evenings, and lastly a outside fireplace.

  • Horribly Depressing 1950's front yard, Ubiquitous carved pine bushes, sagging flagstone garden walls, sewer clean out right next to walk, front porch too small to do anything but walk through.  All this adds up to our horribly depressing front yard.  We've got patchy grass, old wood work, and broken concrete.  The only positives are a great big old maple tree and a really neat vintage mail slot., Yards Design

  • Don't be afraid to paint wood white!, Original 1959 time capsule kitchen.  We wanted to freshen it up without spending tons and keeping with the character of the rest of the house.  

We kept the solid wood cabinets, but painted, trimmed and routered them to give them a whole new look.  Butcher block counters from Ikea were an inexpensive but rich looking option. 

New stone-look vinyl floors were installed.  Stainless steel appliances and fixtures give the new kitchen a rustic modern feel. Dark brown paint was used above the cabinets and a color called 'Almond bisque, a very pale neutral yellow on the lower walls.

More pictures to come.

All in all, exclusing new appliances we spent about $3000 for this huge makeover., Kitchens Design
