This week I wanted to take a minute and tell you about other rapidly renewable resources that you can incorporate into your home decor from floors to walls, these are choices you can really feel good about.

An Outdoor Oasis in Your Backyard
Is it an oasis? No, it’s actually your backyard! Spring has sprung and along with it the desire to get outside and enjoy our homes. There’s nothing better than relaxing outdoors in a beautiful and inspired space. For Kansas City and the Midwest, outdoor living furniture has to be sturdy to withstand the fluctuations in weather, but just because it has to be sturdy doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice design. Arlene shares some Design Connection inspiration on outdoor design this week.
