Dish storage in kitchen island.like this idea! I LOVE the idea of keeping plates in a drawer. This is a great example of drawer storage I would like in the island and cabinetry. Little or no standard cabinet fronts down low. all drawer storage.
olive trees in courtyard. Evergreen, soft grey tones, hardy and easily shaped. My husband really wants one of these in our garden so he can have an "on-tap" supply of olives and a reminder of my Italian roots.
Deck ideas: Like the open stairs, flower box bench added to square deck with railings. (Not this big.)Would put chaise lounge and sitting chairs on deck. Two tone is nice, too. The stairs would lead to patio deck (table/grill).
