    In Europe, the kitchen island has become the true heart of the home. This, once-functional, piece anchored the kitchen, but it has now been elevated to a more social, and visual, status.

  • In The Garden: Head For Cover

    While we were worshiping to the sun gods back in February, some of us may now be getting fed up with the heat. With high temperatures come increased UV rays, so it makes sense to seek out shady spots that provide some reprieve.

  • Model Home Feature: Amuse By The Lake In Fort Erie
