For many people, outdoor space doubles as a storage area or somewhere to put trash before taking it out. However, your small apartment balcony can be much more.
To celebrate Earth Day this month and to respect one of the most utilized natural resources on earth, we are presenting this co-blogging article about the benefits of trees in residential areas and how they increase the value of the homes.
Everyone knows trees are valuable, but did you know you can actually calculate their specific added value to your property? If you’ve ever had to purchase a tree for your yard, you know that it can be an expensive investment, even for a young tree. And maintaining this tree can also be costly, such as leaf removal or tree trimming. Having mature trees in your yard or property is usually seen as value commodity: trees provide necessary shade for houses, can act as a screen for unwanted noise or views, protect slopes from erosion, and are pretty to look at. But they can block a desirable view, create a leafy mess, cause damage to the home from broken limbs, and roots can damage driveways or underground pipes. So, should you be planting more trees in your yard or paying for their removal?

According to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), consumers' increasing awareness about the effects of global warming, motivated a change in buying behaviors that resulted in new government mandates for the furniture industry.
As we mark the 48th year of Earth Day, two natural materials (Bamboo & Rattan), spring to mind when we think about fast-growing and sustainable resources for home furnishings.

Visualize the post-war era between the 40's and 60's when most Mid-Century experts indicate the beginning of this movement. That period is when the Boomers' lifestyle created a demand for suburban modern tract homes as they established their nuclear families.
The new post-war architecture brought about uncluttered geometric lines that emphasized simplicity and utility due to limited resources. The idea was to integrate an open space setting by using natural lighting (e.g. windows around the house) and an easy indoor/outdoor transition that's exemplified in Eichler-style homes. These distinct architectural elements inspired an innovative furniture style that's called Mid-Century (Mid-Mod, Modernism, Post-Modern).
