This sample shows the colour and grain variations. It is not nailed, milled yesterday and sanded with palm sander to 100 grit. Then a brush on sealer… the colour is brilliant. With little selection, you should be able to lay down the floor with the grain patterns in mind.
Our almendro has been drying almost one year in block. After it is milled, it will shed some moisture, and is adviseable to season the flooring and siding for at least a month in a dry and well ventilated condition. It is generally agreed that almendro does not hold as much water as other hardwoods, ie. nispero, and therefore shrinkage is relatively minimal.
Almendro, along with nispero, is
resistant to insects and water damage.


Beautiful chandeliers can add a new look to a tired decorating scheme. Whatever your style of home, adding a new chandelier can change a space into something spectacular. There are many styles available for all homes from casual to elegant. One of my favorite companies is Currey & Co. They create and design a line of lighting that incorporates historic designs as well as modern. Their use of many different materials sets this company apart and has helped it become a favorite with the design industry. The chandelier pictured is one of my favorites and comes from the Mansion Collection. Three sizes are available but to the trade only. Contact your designer or feel free to email us for more information.


There are many different ways to display your family photos or art collections. Group your framed pictures together on a shelf and display your collection as one piece of wall art. This will help to add interest to small groupings and adds weight to small items.

Trim 101

To trim or not to trim! That is the question. Don't underestimate the value of adorning your pillows, draperies, bedding, etc. Trimming helps to emphasize, accentuate shapes and adds extra drama. When decorating a room, you do not need to trim everything. Choose a few items for the adorning of trim and coordinate with your fabrics and colors.
Example: Simple drapery panels look elegant and beautiful with a beaded trim down each interior edge. For a subtle effect, choose a trim that matches the fabric and for a dramatic approach, choose a multi-colored trim. This shows two different ways for adding color and drama to the same window treatment.

New trim colors to look for: Bronze, Vivid Blues, Golds, Silvers, Eggplant
