This House is ALIVE!

Well, the house itself is not really alive but the outside of it is covered in over 4500 living, growing plants!! Green roofs have been increasing in popularity over the years and now we have green…. facade?? Not sure what to call it but I love it! The interior of this Lisbon home (designed by Luís Rebelo de AndradeTiago Rebelo de Andrade and Manuel Cachão Tojal) isn’t too shabby (wink, wink… it’s pretty incredible) but the exterior is what gets people talking and taking notice of this truly unique home. There’s even a pool on the roof!

Love for The Great Outdoors!

I love, love, love a great outdoor space! Especially during this time of year when the weather is not too hot, the sun is shining and we have a nice breeze…. Oh yeah! So, naturally, I went looking for some outdoor area design ideas! Here’s what I found...

 I love all the color here! And, it’s pretty simple. 2 chairs and an ottoman. Lovely.

Even if you don’t have a lot of space, you can still make it fabulous!

Don’t have a covered outdoor area? Make one out of a storage shed! Brilliant.
