Stone pavers over stone and sand would look great. The front does not need to match the back at the previous person mentioned.

Try snap together deck tiles. Google them. There are a million different types, and easy to install.

I don't get the open concept! I like rooms being separate and having some privacy.
When my kitchen is dirty now I clean it ASAP, I can’t imagine if I was always IN my kitchen, I would go nuts!
It is a good thing my house was built in the 30's!

Paint the chest white and paint the top inset blue. Then put a piece of clear glass over the blue. You could also look at pictures of stenciled furniture and see if you want to try that!

If you don't have a lot of patterns in the room, wall paper the drawer fronts and paint the rest.

A friend of mine decided to paint her brick accents on her house. The painter power washed it to prepare it for paint. She loved the brick after it was cleaned. She skipped the paint on the brick. You might want to see what your brick really looks like.

HI --Azul -- I have no problems painting brick but.... you have nice brick and it adds personality to your house style . I think I would up date the siding color and invest in some new more modern front doors . Perhaps a nice taupe for the siding or the color that goes with most brick is "Ranchwood" by Benjamin Moore Paints and "Willow " for the roof edge and eves . If you decide to paint the siding , then also paint the window trims the same -- do not out line all the windows with an accent color . This will be more modern looking .For the new doors - maybe natural or mahogany doors or painted in "Prairie Lilly " Also even getting some garden center or landscapers advise on editing some of the trees and shrubs . I think I would get rid of the topiary trees in front of the brick sections . Also your exterior lighting could be bigger and maybe something in more current style . You have a beautiful house !

Hi Lefty, Thank you so much for giving me something to think about and suggestions I can actually look at. I really appreciate it and will let you know what we decide. by the way I also think the front door has to go. But never considered taking out the topiaries.

Some houseboats do move, yes! Not sure if you would suffer from light seasickness though...

My neighbor decided to put in a pool. He got rid of all of his trees, but I have a monster oak tree that has branches hanging over his property. He had all of the branches that were hanging over his property removed. Since the tree is right next to the fence, it was half of the branches. This put all of the weight on one side of the tree and made the tree unsafe.
Long story short.... He ended up having to pay to have the tree rebalanced. He hates me.

I moved in six months ago and am just getting to know my neighbors, summer seems to be bringing them out. All are quite friendly and most take care of their pets, except one. She lets her cat roam and apparently does not keep a litter box inside for her as I have caught it using my newly made/freshly planted garden boxes several times. Exasperated and short of funds till payday I was talking with my doctors nurse about the problem. She suggested plastic forks! I got several bags at the dollar store and planted them tine up and no more kitty droppings! Will reuse these again and again until need to be recycled.

I live one house away from a corner lot, so part of my back yard lines up with a home on a different street--but I have the larger yard, so majority of their back yard ends against my property. The rear of my yard backs up to a ridge that is littered with trees and ivy.

When we do yard work, we tend to toss our limbs in that area against our property line and the ridge, but we keep it in our property. Our side neighbor whom we have never spoken to planted some trees dangerously close to the property line (I say dangerously because we are planning to erect a fence soon and they are right along the line). All the dirt they dug up was wheelbarrowed to the ridge where they dumped it...but it's in our property.

I didn't care enough to vocalize it because it's really not MUCH dirt and that area of our property isn't exactly showroom ready....but when the brushline gets hauled off and fence goes up, their trees are going down.

If you were to stain them dark cherry, and were able to remove the previous finish, you would still have knotty pine cabinets. The grain and knots in pine are much different that cherry, which is a finer grained wood without the prominent knots. If you are going to keep the cabinets then I would paint them. Trying to picture cherry doors with black cabinets and I'm not sure it would look very good. Don't know that I wouldn't replace the doors and paint everything black or maybe an espresso color.

I don't know how they anchored the dishwasher, usually it is just two screws into the underside of the countertop, but this looks like granite.... They can usually be pulled out a few inches without unhooking anything else. The lower panel comes off if you need to fish a wire or string from each side and tie them together in the middle to pull the wire through. I usually have to be having a bad day to go to that strategy, but I've had a bit of practice.

I grew up in Navy Housing. I learned to love the people in the house because the structure and surroundings were going to change every 3 years.
There are small things that remind me of home. Like where the fork drawer is. No matter where we lived it was always the closest drawer to the refrigerator. It is the same in my house. I also feel the compulsion to move my furniture every couple years. My husband thinks I'm insane, but it's not home unless someone walks into a dark room and falls over something that was not there the day before. Ha!

I live in Italy so I suppose different categories are at work.
Both then and now I've lived in an apartment. In-between there have been a few different experiences, one should reckon.
the main difference with my parents' home is that living room/dining room/kitchen is a single space in my home, whereas the kitchen and the dining room used to be quite distant at my parents' (an absurdity that makes the dining/living room scarcely used now).
My parents' home was a top-floor apartment with a huge terrace, I have found a ground-floor apartment with a large-ish garden (I ma very lucky, i still live in a city). I mean, access to an outside space must have been in-built in me. My parents house is a 70's, brick-walled 5-storey building, vs. I have always lived in more ancient buildings, including the current one (1930). But I have changed a lot inside, and made it an open-space, multi-layered space. My parents' home was reasonably large, but I have seen too many small, cramped-looking, small-roomed flats not to be determined to dispose of larger space even if the total space was not large.

Couldn't be much more different: I grew up in an Eichler-style home filled with Danish Modern furniture in a San Francisco suburb. I now live in a log home overiooking the Tennessee River. (I still lean towards more modern decor inside though.)
