Adding Style to Your Fire
stone is being sought more than ever. The durability and craftsmanship that makes your home uniquely yours is taking precedence over former trends of stark minimalism. Finding expert carvers is no simple undertaking, as trading schools, even in Europe, are disappearing, making their work in great demand all over the world. Some of the few that still practice this art have developed a revolutionary form of compressed stone, resulting in reconstituted stone, preferable to real limestone because its harder consistency makes it better suited to the details, shadows, and sharp edges that distinguish the traditional Tudor and Gothic styles they often recreate. One of the great qualities of well-carved stone is that it conveys a sense of drama and mystery. Once it’s been distressed, the look of composite stone so closely

Now is the perfect time to make your fireplace the center of family traditions by investing in a striking, handcarved mantel and surround—an ideal way to enhance your interior décor and increase the value of your home. Hand-carved fireplace mantels and surrounds transform your living space with intricate detail and stunning stonework. With so many cookie-cutter designs flooding the home market today, custom design and the ageless beauty of

How to Select

Art for Your Home
As an artist, I’d certainly prefer that everyone buy the art they love and then find a place to put it. If you feel strongly about a particular work of art, this is certainly the way to go. But you may find that when you get the art home and place it on a wall or pedestal, it doesn’t work with its surroundings. By not “working,” I mean the art looks out of place...

What’s Your Decorating “Personality”?
of mood do you want to create in your room... calm and relaxing, or dynamic and energetic? Do you love color palettes with warm tones or cool tones? Do you lean toward traditional or contemporary? Which styles will complement your home’s architectural character? All these clues will help you pinpoint the unique decor that best suits your personality. 4. Identify and work around a focal point in each room. This can be a fireplace, a conversational seating arrangement, a piece of art, a window with a view, or many other features. 5. Keep in mind natural traffic patterns through and between rooms and arrange your furniture accordingly for ease of movement 6. A common decorating challenge is to define spaces in open floorplans. You can achieve this with furniture arrangement, area rugs, folding screens, a “wall” of tall houseplants (consider bamboo), or sometimes even a fountain or sculpture. 7. Choose your paint colors LAST! Take samples of your fabrics, wood tones, and flooring if possible when choosing paint chips, and then bring the chips home to view them in the room at different times during the day. There are many other considerations for putting together your décor, whether in one room or an entire house. If you decide to hire a designer, make sure to check their references, look through their portfolio, establish a clear budget and time-frame, and pull out that photo collection of the looks you love.

e all have different decorating personalities. Some people change their furnishings frequently and equate home décor to fashion trends. Others buy the highest quality traditional furniture, keep it forever, and plan to pass it down to their children. And then there are those of us in between who aren’t sure when we should replace that sofa that’s just not quite right for the space. There is much to consider when planning your decorating and furniture purchases. If you’re feeling a bit lost about home decor decisions, here are some tips to help get you started. 1. Determine the real use of each room. Which rooms need to be highly functional, and which can be decorative or for special occasions? What is your family’s lifestyle? How much wear and tear will each room get
BAY LIVING • JUNE/JULY 2010

from kids, pets, or frequent entertaining? 2. Take stock of your current furniture. Do you have family heirlooms, antiques, or very high-quality furnishings? If so, you may be keeping these pieces a long time, and you have the option of reupholstering or refinishing them to freshen their appearance and function. If you’re living with furniture that you’re not fond of, doesn’t quite fit the space, or is past its prime and not worth repairing, start planning for buying some new pieces or whole sets. You can always sell your old pieces or donate them to a charitable organization. 3. Give some serious thought to your own personal style. Look all around you for inspiration and narrow down your favorite colors and interior motifs. Magazines, books, online sources, home shows, stores, and professional decorators can all give you insight into the types of décor that best suit your style and make you feel at home. Start a photo collection of styles that you love – pictures of entire rooms, particular pieces of furniture or fabrics, or even travel photos of a Morrocan palace, an Italian villa, or an English cottage. All these images will be useful for inspiration whether you are redecorating yourself or hiring a designer. Ask yourself these questions: Do you love formal settings or comfy/casual? What kind

Moisture Control—

r

educing your carbon footprint with energy conservation begins below in your home’s sub areas, basements, and crawlspaces. As moisture enters the home through the exposed earth in these spaces as an invisible vapor stream, it brings with it higher heating and cooling costs, unpleasant odors, and asthma- and allergy-causing mold spores. Crawlspace encapsulation systems, sump pumps, basement and garage waterproofing, and drainage systems can help you eliminate wasted energy, improve indoor air quality, and create a more efficient, comfortable, and economical home. Most homeowners aren’t even aware that moisture is constantly entering the home with 30–50% of the air in the first floor coming from the crawlspace. By sealing your crawlspace and eliminating this constant flow of air, your house will retain heat better and cool more efficiently, which can bring a 15–25% energy savings and greatly enhance indoor comfort and air quality. Mold is a major factor when dealing with poor air quality. Isolating your home from the earth with CleanSpace ® will reduce the relative humidity of the crawlspace to a level in which mold cannot grow or survive. Two-thirds of your crawl space vents may then be sealed off to prevent humid exterior air, which makes moisture problems worse, from

entering in the summer and reducing heat loss in the winter—which may contribute to decreased energy costs. Crawlspace encapsulation will also protect your investment in your hardwood flooring. Without a proper moisture barrier, the insulation will absorb the moisture and result in a wet sponge directly beneath your floor, eventually causing them to become cold and buckle. For homes with basements or sunken garages, water will enter through walls, floors, and the joints between them, but having a contractor dig out the side of a house and install an exterior french drain system isn’t a feasible option. The patented WaterGuard ® system is designed as an interior french drain. This unique drain system intercepts water at the interior perimeter and drains it safely away from the floors and walls, keeping the basement or garage dry permanently, allowing you to utilize these spaces to their full potential and create valuable living space out of what was once wasted real estate. All products carry warranties. For more information or to schedule a free home evaluation, you can call Bay Area Moisture Control, serving all Bay Area counties, at 510-836-8789 or 415-884-0500.

The Artistic Alternative to Concrete Resurfacing
Liquid Stone is the fast and affordable way to repair and beautify your pool deck, patio, walkways, driveways, and more. This resurfacing material is made from acrylic and polymer resins mixed with crushed limestone. This unique combination brings forth a brand new product—a liquid coating that can be permanently applied over your existing and tiresome concrete, giving it a fresh new look. When applied over the exiting surface, Liquid Stone actually soaks in, filling cracks and imperfections, bonding with the old concrete to form a new layer. Once the surface solidifies, a team of craftsmen hand carves various patterns to reflect the most natural stone finishes including flagstone, slate, garden stone, travertine, and cobblestone. The new surface is then hand stained according to your choice of finish and exterior décor. Introduce the look of an Italian villa, Tuscan cottage, or Roman courtyard to your patio, pool, or garden area. You can incorporate virtually any design or theme you desire with this highly customizable limestone product. While the texture adds character and depth, these coatings add only 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness to the existing surface. Liquid Stone has endless applications, is highly durable and versatile, and is the perfect way to bring the look of scarred natural stone to your outdoor landscape. This technique and material is applied to columns, walls, windows, and archways as well as pool decks, patios, and driveways. For more information on how Liquid Stone can be custom-designed to enhance the beauty of your home, you can call Liquid Coating Designs at 866-886-2628 or 925-931-1937. Liquid Coating Designs has set the standard in this industry, offering experience and talent second to none. You can also visit their website at www.LiquidCoatingDesigns.com

Looking for a
Landscape Contractor?
inding reputable and responsible landscape and exterior contractors can be stressful and time-consuming for any homeowner. When you get bids from different companies on your own, you have to deal with each contractor telling you that you need to use different materials or a different design to complete the project, and each company ends up bidding on completely separate projects. By utilizing a specialized referral service, you can bypass the headaches while weeding out the unreliable contractors and those that don’t specialize in your particular project. When using a referral service, your landscape consultant works with you and your budget to come up with a design and list of materials for your project to use as a base for obtaining bids from three to four full-service contractors who specialize in your type of project and with whom they’ve worked and have a detailed knowledge of for years. This way, each company bids on the exact same project, giving you accurate estimates for building costs and timelines. Multiple bids from these contractors are presented in an easy to read, side-by-side comparison, allowing you to choose which one you prefer to meet with pressure-free. And because contractors are willing to pay a referral fee for obtaining a client so easily, this service is 100% free to homeowners! In just a few quick meetings, you can save yourself a lot of time and energy by letting an experienced referral service do all the grunt work.

WITH OUR LONG CALIFORNIA SUMMERS, THE BACKYARD BECOMES A USEFUL EXTENSION OF THE HOME AND AN IDEAL PLACE TO ENTERTAIN GUESTS. Therefore, patio furniture gets a lot of use—and with use comes wear. If you have already invested in high-quality furniture such as Brown Jordan, Tropitone®, OW Lee®, Woodard, or Homecrest™, refinishing is an excellent alternative to buying new. Many homeowners who are redecorating their exterior living space choose to refinish their furniture with different colored fabrics, saving 50% of the cost of buying new. A professional patio repair specialist can easily restore furniture in any stage of life to like-new quality in a few easy steps. The process of patio furniture restoration is virtually identical to the original manufacturing.

dirt, and rust. The frame is then inspected for cracks and broken welds, and all necessary repairs are made. After the frame is deemed flawless, a powder-coated frame finish is applied to the clean metal. Powder coating is a spectacular process in which powder particules are electrostatically charged, applied to the metal frame, and then baked in an oven at 400 degrees. The result is excellent durability, corrosion resistance, and better UV stability. After the frame of your patio furniture is looking sparkling new, brand new vinyl strapping is installed. If your furniture requires fabric slings, measurements are taken and new slings are sewn and installed.

magine your very own treehouse ready to be enjoyed by your entire family. This unique clubhouse is authentic to the core... the log a real, old fallen tree. And the charming house that jauntily crowns it is made from old, recycled barn wood. Armed with the acceptable password, simply enter the door in the hollow log, climb up the ladder in its center, and pull yourself through the trap door in the clubhouse floor. Just as no two trees are exactly alike, each house is a unique creation. The recycled barn wood varies as well, with colors that range from old barn-red to a natural, weathered look. The standard reaches about 14’ tall, with logs about 5’ in diameter and 6’ tall. Standard options include a front porch, fireman’s escape pole, flip down loft bed, rope swing extending from the side of the log, a roof dormer on one or both sides, and a slide coming out of the back of the clubhouse. Nothing is more exciting than the challenge of a custom order, though! The tree house can be shipped anywhere in the country and comes in two units: the clubhouse, and the log. Installation services are available and lead time runs between 6-8 weeks.
