The first snowfall is the prettiest! The garden beds are mulched and the patio furniture is tucked away. The squash and onions are stored in the chilly basement. The cold frame is built and the snowblower is ready.
As the temperatures drop, my oak floors are cold, even if the thermostat is set at 70 degrees.
Now it's time to transform my summer home into my winter home.
I'm all about Function & Design, beautiful things that work!
Five Beautiful Tricks to Stay Warm this Winter! (Tried & True)
1. Wool Area Rugs - this is the time of year I switch out my area rugs. Wool rugs are the best insulator. Price may feel like a barrier to you in the past, but as petroleum products continue to rise in price, natural sustainable products like wool are becoming more affordable. So treat yourself to the luxury of wool, your cold toes will appreciate it.
For most people, choosing the perfect paint color is agony. Don't put off painting that room or the exterior of your home because you can't decide, get help from a specialist.

As a lover of architecture and interior design, I recently took a little trip to Spring Green, Wisconsin to see the home of Frank Lloyd Wright.
The Taliesin is a journey back in time, with a look to the future.
Frank Lloyd Wright - The Perpetual Home Renovator
This home was built in 1911 and added on to and remodeled many times over the years. Because he could! I love his experimental courage, always innovating. True to his Organic Design philosophy, all of the building materials were sourced locally. Sadly, the soft sandstone is beginning to deteriorate.
The photos can not possible capture the spirit and beauty of the place, so I encourage you to visit and donate to the preservation of this national treasure. Check it out www.taliesinpreservation.org
ORGANIC ARCHITECTURE Frank Lloyd Wright loved the land, he integrated his structures into the surrounding nature, and surrounded the home in lovely gardens.
He experimented with his use of windows and doors in unexpected shapes and ways.
