Tommy Bahama Outdoor Furniture

There is nothing like a mid-western winter to inspire dreams of sun-kissed sand and swelling turquoise surf.  Some people say they like the cold; apparently they enjoy the biting winds, the chapped lips, the dangerous roads. These same people appreciate colonoscopies and root canals. Give me the beach, any day. Give me the sunshine, the sparkling waves, the warm, drowsy afternoons, and the salt in the air (not on my car). Give me the island life. That’s the same thing Tony...

I Resolve To HAVE MORE FUN

Another year is rolling around; another vain attempt to lose weight, work out more, stop smoking, drinking, eating sugar, eating meat, etc., etc., etc. Why do New Year’s Resolutions always have to focus on the negative? The reality is adding some good ole fun to your family routine will make it a whole lot easier to generate all the changes you desire for yourself. According to an article in Psychology Today, “emotional control, social competency, personal resiliency, and...

Blue, Blue, Christmas

It's no secret that the holidays can bring on a fa-la-la-la-la-la funk; lots of people experience bouts of seasonal depression. Maybe it's the short days and long nights, the biting winds, the ice-encrusted windshields; or maybe it's the shopping, the relatives, and a constant barrage of social obligations. Maybe it's all those unrealistic television portrayals; those scenes of a perfect home with a perfect hearth filled with perfect friends and perfect family eating perfect food around a...

Reinventing Your Pool Table

For the thinking shopper, adding a pool table to a home means subtracting space. And in the economy of interior design, space is money. If the kids don’t fall head over heels for the game, you’ll wonder if you’ve sacrificed precious footage for nothing. If you’re running a cost-benefit analysis of adding a pool table to your living space, consider add-ons and conversions that make your pool table useful, whether or not you’re racking the pool balls every...

Craft Beer Basics

I have never been a beer drinker, although you wouldn’t think that if you looked in the fridge in my garage. We have an entire appliance devoted entirely to the storage and chilling of beer. Not just any beer makes it to this hallowed spot, however – the only beer in our fridge is “craft” beer.   My husband and daughter are craft beer enthusiasts;  and after listening to several conversations between the two of them that made no sense to me at all, I...

An Attitude Of Gratitude

The U.S. was the first country in the world to formally observe a day dedicated to giving thanks. In 1789, George Washington proclaimed Thursday, November 26, as a “Day of Publick Thanksgivin” and in 1863, Abraham Lincoln fixed the last Thursday of November as the official day to commemorate a national day of Thanksgiving. But being thankful means so much more than pigging out on turkey and falling into a tryptophan coma one day each year. More than mini-marshmallows,...

Take Up Smoking – For Thanksgiving!

Turkey time is right around the corner and so are those hours of oven roasting which may or may not result in a juicy bird. If it dries out, well, there is always gravy. Lots and lots of gravy. I would like to suggest another option; smoking. It’s healthy, it’s tasty, and it’s easy! It also leaves your oven free for a multitude of other goodies. Like pie. Pumpkin pie. Pecan pie. Apple pie. Any kind of pie. You can smoke a turkey on either a charcoal or gas grill or...

Game Room Lighting

We are calling a do-over on the interior design of game rooms everywhere, including our own. At Family Leisure, we’ve helped to build hundreds of game rooms from the ground up. One of the things we consider over and over is the timelessness of game pieces like pool tables, poker tables, bar sets, and more. We emphasize the benefit of choosing furniture style game pieces to create a luxury ambiance in game rooms. Rather than suggesting plastic foosball tables, we suggest sleek,...

Planning the Perfect Party

I recently hosted a party where the highlight of the evening was everyone sitting on my patio, watching a spider spin his web. When it got dark, someone turned on his smartphone flashlight so the festivities could continue. Not kidding. It was one to go down in the annals…of how not to throw a party! What are the secrets to a great gathering? Obviously, I had to do a little research to answer this question. So, first you start with the guest list. You are usually safe to...
