A great way to add color and creativity to any room in your house is to paint a section with chalkboard paint. Hudson Paint (www.hudsonpaint.com) offers the most amazing selection of colors. My favorites include open sky blue and bon bonbon pink for a childrens room (finally they can color on the walls!) and strong addiction brown/designer special grey as a perfect accent in the kitchen (you can jot down a recipe or a menu).
This recipe is incredibly easy to prepare and makes a perfect summer dessert when served with vanilla ice cream and a dash of peach liquor.
3 peaches pitted and sliced in half
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 heaping teaspoons of brown sugar
cinnamon to taste
Preheat oven to 450. Pour lemon juice over peaches and sprinkle browns sugar and cinnamon on top of slices. Bake for approximately 5 minutes on each side or until tender.
One of my favorite shelter magazines is House Beautiful as they feature many gorgeous rooms in a variety of styles. Many magazines usually focus on only one particular style (i.e. modern, traditional, country etc.) but I feel that regardless of what style you prefer you can get great ideas from all types of decor.
