This is absolutely gorgeous! I have noticed that all of Charmean's projects grab my attention, even though I am not as meticulous as most of the homeowners she has designed for seem to be. @ flopsycat1, we loved white countertops and wanted something natural- looking, but we know we are not the type to do well with most marble. Purely by accident, we saw a slab of Lumix quartzite and fell in love with it. It resembles marble, but does not etch, chip, or show wear in any way since we had it installed two years ago. Lemons, tomatoes, coffee, whatever… can sit on the surface and just wipe off later. I can't post a picture right now, but if you search for Lumix quartzite or look at my kitchen idea books, you'll see what it looks like. It is my favorite thing in our house, and everyone who sees it asks what it is and where they can get it!

Frameless mirrored door with no handles might look great in the pictures, in real life, the mirrors are smudged with fingerprints unless they are only opened by people wearing gloves.

I remember the house I grew up in had beveled edged, frameless, really shallow medicine cabinets. It was a daily chore to clean the glass and I hated it. No one could ever grab the same area and guests always thought it was push to open so occasionally you'd hear the crashing of items soon as the cabinet opened. I might lack pretty storage right now but these are still a no go for this girl.

There are some really lovely images here. Thanks. The idea of the Australian shed is at the centre of the design for our new house design. We live on the coast overlooking beautiful bays and back onto a National Park (the 'big' backyard!). The land is on a slope, so it won't be so traditional in shape, but definitely in use of materials ... corrugated metal, Hawkesbury sandstone and lots of glass to create that lovely Australian indoor/outdoor feel.

These are very interesting houses. Well worth looking at the additional photos to really appreciate them. I'm particularly taken with the St. Albans and Cowshed houses.

I liked the clipboard idea, though in my life I like the ability to change things, so I'd consider using chalkboard paint (it comes in lots of colors) on the clipboards so I could change the message frequently. Or use it as a CLIPboard and print out the letters, or a quote celebrating, family, friends, food, what ever is appropriate. For a less casual celebration picture frames could be used instead.

Calycanthus Floridus (Sweetshrub) grows in Massachusetts. I saw it at the Arnold Arboretum.
