mirror in the garden

Hanging a mirror in the garden can move
 Chi energy in the garden 
in the direction and flow of prosperity.

It can also expand a small area through reflection of the surroundings.

It’s a fun way to enliven a garden or outdoor area!

home tour: best of kitchens and dining

I'm so excited to go on the Newport Harbor Home and Garden Tour coming up on May 14th.  It’s always a fun day, and this year, they will be showing seven homes!  The day starts with the morning reception at Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop for a little brunch. Then we are able to start touring the homes. 

I always enjoy the diversity of the homes shown on the tour, and I especially love seeing the kitchens and dining areas all dressed up.   In between viewing all the homes, we stop to enjoy a yummy lunch and browse the boutique with gorgeous views overlooking Newport Harbor. 

After lunch, we finish touring the rest of the homes and conclude the day with an afternoon champagne reception hosted at Barclay Butera Interiors.  Their Newport Beach showroom is always a treat to visit, and it’s really a lovely way to end the day!  Will you make it to the home tour this year? 

Here is a peek at some of my favorite kitchens and dining areas from past years...
