Just ordered - how did I do?Comments (8)I've been tempted by Tangerine Horses myself. Hope you will let us know how it does for you next year. I grew Seminole Wind. It had trouble opening its blooms the first year but when a few finally did open towards the end they were a pretty and unusual color. I had mine in a pot waiting to see if I liked it enough to plant it the next year (that's how I evaluate). Unfortunately Seminole Wind did not make it until next spring because of crown rot. I didn't buy it again. I've heard others say it does fine for them, but for me there are just too many daylilies out there to fool around with one that had so many problems its first year....See More
I ordered this sofa and ten I just stopped...:(Comments (48)I am still deciding what I want to do. Mulling maybe is a better word. Sallymo, I had a painter out for my foyer yesterday. He is coming back with my estimate today and the foyer will be painted withing the next month regardless of who paints it. I may decide to go that way while I have a painter here. I am sort of focused on my finals until Friday and I may run after and see what I can find. I thought perhaps some pictures matted in cream (black and whites or sepia) of my children and family would bring a good feel to the room and the cream mattings would brighten things up a little if I went that route. I am also am looking at pillow covers on Etsy in patterns to cover my pillows. I thought I could still use the same forms and sizes and find a brown linen, a blue linen and then I really like the pottery barn ones. They should fit my current smaller pillows. I am sort of getting a vision. I want new lamps and I just need to find them!...See More
Aggghhh! I just ordered my blanco silgranit and I'm nervous!Comments (11)Do any of you have a silgranite sink with another type of sink in the same room? I'm thinking of trading out my dbl bowl for a single, and a Super Single, of course, looks like the best use of the space...But my prep sink on the island is white porc over cast iron (Kohler). Will they look bad together? (Both would be drop in, not undermount.) Would I want to stick with white (I have light gray counters), or will that emphasize the difference in the sink materials? Of course, this all depends on my talking DH into taking out my nearly new sink when he's still working to finish the rest of the house... Sorry to hijack, Fairytalebaby. Based on the previous threads on Silgranite sinks I read today, I bet you'll be thrilled with your choice....See More
Help! Did I order the wrong sink color?Comments (6)srahndennis - I chuckled a little when I read this, but certainly not at you ... it's because I was doing the same questioning of my choice (like I've done with so many other things in this kitchen reno =) I'm the opposite of you though - I originally wanted a deep brown sink because I have cream cabinets with a cafe dry brushing/light glaze and antique bronze handles. My granite is darker - has mostly deep browns, some black/creams/silver and slight splashes of dark coppery orange. But when I saw the Silgranit cafe in person, the brown didn't look rich enough for the browns in my granite (it actually looked like a dusty brown (it could have been that the sink was actually dusty instead though - lol) So I went with the anthracite since I have black in my granite too (and in parts of the ss appliances). With a colored sink, I'm of the thought that the sink looks best when it blends, rather than contrasts, with the counter (ss is an exception as it is so standard it always works). I think in our cases either one would work, but the cafe may work better for you since you have a lighter granite. It's hard to say without seeing it, but I think it may give you a softer flow than the black. And the appliances will then pull the slight blacks from your counter....See More
