Celebrating the Season

The date was the Saturday before Christmas eve—and while most people’s calendars are full by this time, that didn’t stop Tim Reily from having a last-minute dinner party for 12 that night. What inspired him was the Christmas village he had set up in the entranceway. Tim had stopped doing it for about seven years, […]

Rolling in Dough

How do you know it’s the holidays in your home? The cinnamon-ginger smell of fresh baked cookies float from the kitchen throughout, drawing family members near for some midday snacking before the annual feast. By rule of thumb you must wait until the cookies are completely cooled before eating, but who can resist chewy coconut […]

Bob Becker

When Bob Becker looks out of his window he sees an elegant expanse of lush green fields, century-old oak trees and blue skies. Not a bad day at the office, some would say. But it’s all part of the package if the office is situated at City Park, where Becker serves as CEO over 1,500 […]

The land was the same his uncles had once owned and where Caldarera grew up […]

It might be a better choice to go with tile. “Most of us live below sea level and the possibility of flood waters is inevitable. A ceramic or porcelain floor is the only type of flooring that will not […]

A Holiday Haven

Swags of Christmas greenery surround an 18th-century Venetian mirror in the living room. On the mantel, two Chinese Foo dogs sit in front of a pair of 18th-century Venetian mirrored sconces. A bronze chandelier from the French Antique Shop illuminates the room’s furniture, including a Venetian mirrored coffee table and 18th-century gaming/eating table by the […]
