We have a lot of lawn, but we are gradually reducing it with native planting. Because it is a big area we find working in stages is easier on our backs and wallet. And the interesting thing is that once there are a few native plants and shrubs more pop up all on their own, they seem to find each other and they bring back the birds and insects too.

Sorry alisoncartwright, but that is ridiculous. Faded artwork and faded sofas are a "patina"? Nice euphemism. Mine used to be vibrant and energetic and now they are just washed out. If bright things, the way they were designed, are considered "magazine spread" then I guess that's what I want.

Two words: DO IT I live in a high rise, face west and have two black couches in my living room. I had good quality window films in stalled when we moved in 8 years ago. I still live in a high rise, still face west, and I STILL have two BLACK couches in my Living roomW

Love your zen treehouse idea but usually people "forget" to go out and enjoy it since they think of so many things they "must do" at home. When you leave home even to go camping, you shut all the worries out of your mind, and relax especially if you leave the cell phone at home with the computer.

I've taken a new position with my company with better perks, reimbursements, and time that I schedule myself vs being chained to a site each and every day so I feel thankful for the first time in my career in having a new fresh perspective. I've been using my weekends for mini staycations shorting my Fridays and gardening, relaxing, and car cruising with my husband. I have a beautiful yard with a variety of gardens so to be outside enjoying the summer without being so tired and beat up from a ridiculous week is no longer eating away at my peaceful time at home. My time is mine again, it's the closest thing to early retirement I've experienced so far and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

Lovely design, but what I've been wondering is what is behind the door that gets covered by the bookcase and if you come through that door wouldn't you fall down the staircase?

I too have a small backyard and I think I can use some of the tips mentioned in the ideabook. But I think you have made use of too much of hardscaping which needs much time and efforts. Anyways the ideas were great. I would love to incorporate at mine.

I think it is the "how to" and interactivity of this thread that has made it so interesting and useful. I bookmarked it because there are many suggestions I want to keep. (Formica Calcutta Marble, Bon Ami, SCRUB, SCRUB, SCRUB!) Everyone has been so generous sharing. Thanks!
