Happy Birthday, Internet!

Today marks the 25th year of the creation of the World Wide Web, created on March 12th, 1989 by Sir Tim Berners-Lee.  Today on the Diane Rehm show  NPR, the guests reflected on our global society and how cultures experience the immersion of life on the web in their daily activities.    “The World Wide Web turns 25 today. In a little over two decades, the Web has revolutionized the way we communicate, do business, access entertainment and share information. To mark the occasion, we look to the future, when experts say the Internet will become like electricity, permeating our lives and raising questions about privacy, security and even the nature of reality.” (

Do trends in kitchen and bath renovations really shift so radically one year to the next?  The changes may seem so small year to year, but look back five to ten years and you really can tell the difference.  Renovating that often really isn't practical - but seeing the small changes and the newest products can help you update in minor ways - or decide you need a whole new kitchen!

KBIS 2014 - from Brooke Eversoll

describe the image

This year KBIS was in Las Vegas, the city of lights.    My favorite part was a tour of 3 penthouses located in the Mandarin Oriental on the Vegas strip.  We visited 3 units on the 43rd, 46th, and 47th floors.  The units overlooked the lights for some of the best views of the city.  Corner windows where glass came together at a sharp angle, brought us up close and personal to the view.   Floor to ceiling windows bringing us eye level with the sky.

Houzz 2013 Fall Kitchen Trends Study

Houzz has quickly become the design industry's replacement for home magazines in a digital age.  It lets you can flip through all kinds of photos, just like in a magazine - and so much more!  You can narrow the pictures to see only kitchens, or only baths, or only traditional homes.  You can tag pictures of things you like and make notes on them.  (In the 20th century these are called tear-sheets - pages you ripped from magazines to save for later - I still have a stack of these somewhere...)  And you can share what you like and don't like with your spouse, best friend or designer - all without encountering ads for Viagra or pet food.

A wise woman once told me 'Beauty is painful!', which, she went on to explain, meant that to achieve beauty for more than mere seconds takes a lot of work.
