Welcome to House and Garden

Welcome to our site dedicated to things around the home and few other things for life’s essentials. We have over the years decorated many homes throughout the states and the things we’ve learned we’d like to share with you all.

Does the world need another web site dedicated to House and Garden? Probably not. But we like to think of this site as a place to come for those items of house gossip. What we’ve tried and what we’ve liked. What we’ve tried and didn’t like. We’ll reveal all as it happens and give, we hope, useful tips and pointers on what you can do without spending huge amounts of money.

We like to think of the home as something more than just a cold structure to live in. A house takes on a personality defined by its occupants. You can feel the love and warmth that a house gives out as soon as you walk through the door. Equally you can feel the neglect when the house occupants don’t care.

We like to bring elements of Feng Shui into our homes and our gardens but more about that later. But the whole environment should be built around harmony, when we do that our home starts to support us in our endeavors and our pursuits.

It’s easy to feel excluded from all this living in harmony if you live in an apartment or when you share a house with others. But that’s not so. The place where you live or choose to live is all about you. And you need to define that space for yourself.

The great news is that you don’t need to spend ridiculous amounts of money either. Things that you like will define your space for you. And this is never a static process, change as often as you like or fix things for a while and change when you feel the urge.

It’s all about freedom, your freedom. Enjoy our blog.
