Now this is a front stoop. Love it…I like the rusty metal planters on either side, the stone stairs, the black front door, the lighting, and the white washed brick exterior is my dream…I like it all. I need to step up my stoop.
What do you think? Do you like this front stoop? What’s on your stoop? I like writing the word stoop…so I’m going to continue with more stoop questions. Do you even have a stoop? Would you like me to stop with the stoop?
P.S. Just finished submitting some wonderful designers for Traditional Home’s and TRADHome’s list of New Trad designers. Fingers crossed that one of my submissions gets picked for the list!

All over the world there is an abundance of great houses with amazing architecture for us to marvel at each and every day. Even though there are many great houses in our own backyard to look at we just cant get enough of seeing the designs of these international architecture firms. Today were going to be looking at a new house in Israel called House R.
This house was designed by Sharon Neuman Architects and is located in Kfar Yedidia, Israel. The house is bordered by many agricultural fields and the designers wanted to create something that was able to breathe and bond with the exterior. The design of the house is very much asymmetrical but that gives it a very interesting feel and it is something that we have been seeing more and more often these days.

California architect Amy A. Alper designed this charming creek-side cabin in Santa Rosa, California. This delightful riverfront home sits on a serene property surrounded by towering firs and redwoods. One of the regulations for building here was that new construction was limited only to “previously disturbed” areas, so the architect thought outside the box with a great cantilevered living room and hallway addition that, while adding extra living space, had no impact on the land. Though revamped, the shingle-style cabin design, circa 1920s, maintains its country charms. The architect salvaged the original shingled exterior and used it as the backdrop for the new living spaces, adding a wonderful outdoor feel to interiors. Furthermore, this forest home features expansive glass walls that capture views of the trees and the creek. A fabulous fireplace feature warms up this rustic cabin home, both in looks and in feel.

Fibrous-rooted begonias are easy to bring indoors and grow during the winter.
Both wax begonias and angel wing begonias are fibrous-rooted, which means they have a basic, familiar looking stringy root ball. These are the begonias commonly sold in hanging baskets and as bedding plants. Fibrous-rooted begonias make great house plants over the winter, as do the rhizomatous types (such as Rex begonias), which are grown primarily for their foliage.
All you really need is a little space and a bright window, and these types of begonias will continue to grow (and possibly even bloom!) year-round.
To know how to care for your begonia over the winter, you really need to know what kind of begonia you’re growing. Fi
