The Famous Flowers Of The Four Seasons Paris

The Famous Flowers Of The Four Seasons Paris. Jeff Leatham is the creative genius behind the magnificent floral arrangements of the George V Four Seasons Hotel in Paris and Beverly Hills, California. I have had the privilege of watching how the flowers in the Paris hotel are arranged, changed, watered and loved.  Honestly, there are no words to describe the beauty and the amount of work it takes to maintain them. I was fortunate enough to sit down with the Director of Floral design in Paris and chat about the famous flower arrangements of The Four Seasons Hotel Paris.

Make Your Bedroom 100% Vegan

Love is in the air!!! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we all know that a heart shaped box of chocolates and flowers are the standard gifts. However, how about shaking things up a bit and give the gift of true romance – a beautifully styled bed for that special “ba-da-bing,  ba-da-boom night!

Let’s get down to setting the stage for a night of passion in a fabulous bed created with all the vegan trimmings. Good design should not only be visually beautiful. But it should address all our senses including touch (texture), sound and scent. The selected items, together, create the perfect sensory balance for an environment that is soothing, warm and purely romantic.

DIMARE DIARIES: ANDREA DUCLOS A.K.A. ‘OHDEARDREA’

Deborah DiMare

1. To stay centered, what is one activity you do religiously daily or weekly?

Drea: I sit outside. Sometimes it’s a bit difficult working from home because I feel like I’m often trapped, especially with the Florida heat— but I always try to make it a point to sit outside in the hot sun with a cool glass of water. Just feeling the breeze and sunshine.

2. What are the sources of happiness in your home?

Drea: The light and sunshine for sure! I love how cozy and bright our space is— and when the windows are open and the breeze comes in? It’s magic!

#LEGO®: SO MUCH MORE THAN A TINY PIECE OF PLASTIC

Deborah DiMare

Sometimes you find profound things in the simplicity of a favorite childhood toy. I was on Facebook recently and came across a picture my friend Pablo and his son Dylan (pictured above). He is playing with his son, piecing together colorful bits of plastic, but really piecing together some pretty big life lessons. When I asked him about his love of LEGO® systems, he sang the praises of these colorful little blocks.

Autism & Animals

APRIL IS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

I have always had pets. My children have been fortunate enough to have never known life without a dog cuddling next to them. We are a family of animal lovers. Pets are not only warm, fuzzy loving buddies, but they offer developmental benefits to children, especially children in the Spectrum of Autism. A recent study was performed at four schools in Australia. The students in the Autistic Spectrum were monitored as they were playing with either toys or the classroom guinea pigs. The children were more verbal and social when they were with the guinea pigs than when they were playing with dolls. They were also more approachable while playing with the guinea pigs. Pets are social icebreakers. They force even the most socially unskilled to become social. Our dog, Lucca, has led us to more people who have become life long friends endless times. So, it only stands to reason, that children and adults within the Autistic Spectrum would benefit even more. Having a pet next to them is providing them with the security and confidence to become social, tactile, aware and emotional. It’s a win win all around.
