Tell us about your favorite colorful object in your home:
My favorite object in my home is the tree stump turned garden object outside on my balcony. I bought the tree stump in a small logging town in southern Oregon, hoping to make it coffee table. It didn't look good, though, in the space, so I put it out on the balcony, trying to figure out how I should get rid of it-- sell it, give it to a friend, etc. When I put it out there I sort of liked it, but it still was missing something. Since I'm on the 25th floor (no greenery up there) and plants seemed the obvious thing to do, I opted for a little different-- fake grass. This really works for me, and it gives life to my balcony from inside my place.
