The Future of Housing

There are some great innovations happening in housing, especially in factory built housing. Many of the leaders of this sector have gathered in San Diego to network about what the future should hold. We are honored to have been asked to be part of this very prestigious group.

Preserving Summer

Labor Day is what seems like the last hurray of Summer.  Fall doesn't officially arrive until the 23nd but people pack up their vacation homes, enjoy this 3 day weekend and get ready for what's ahead.

We've had such a great Summer we don't want it to end here, especially when it comes to enjoying all of the fresh, locally grown produce we've been enjoying.

After another trip to the Farmers Market we are ready to see how we can make some of this goodness last - we already have berries and peaches in the freezer, and we are using tomatoes to make a marinara this morning. We'll be sharing recipes and ideas on our Lifestylist page and with Thermador.

Enjoy every minute of this beautiful day!

Fall is Coming to The Home Idea Factory

It's been a busy year, and this Lifestylist® has spent quite a bit of time traveling to visit clients and homeowners. Because of that I haven't spent as much time at The Home Idea Factory, but today I got to make up for that and experience again why I love living and working here.
Visiting The Workroom yesterday really got me inspired and I looked at what was around me with different eyes. Things I would have thrown away are now going to be recycled - just wait until you see what I am planning on doing with the two birds nests I found!
It may be Fall and we are almost to the middle of November, but things are still blooming. Daisy - my rescue dog helped me explore - take a look at some of the special finds we made today.
