Love Your Home: Griling Summer Peaches

Now that your grill is set up and your porch is looking good, why not invite a few friends over? One of the best things about living in Virginia during July is peach season. Fresh peaches are readily available all over the city. For a great summer road trip, you can even pick your own peaches at Carter Mountain Orchard—it makes for a fun summer day with the family!

Last year I discovered grilled peaches, and they became a favorite of mine. So, I thought I would share some ideas.

Martha Stewart’s Grilled Peaches
recipe is simple and perfect for topping off a salad or placing on top of grilled halibut or Chilean Sea Bass.

For something more exotic, I can never resist All Recipe’s Grilled Peaches with Balsamic Glaze and Bleu Cheese.

My last recipe to share is an adult beverage.  Stir gently over ice:  2 oz of peach nectar, 2 oz of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka and 4 oz of seltzer.

What's your favorite fruit for preparing on the grill? Or, what's your favorite standout recipe for entertaining? Share it in the comments!

Design With Technology: Bay Window Designs

Designing with technology is one of the things that makes it even easier for me to turn my customers’ dreams into reality. I can mock up a bunch of different ideas for a part of a room before anyone spends a nickel. And, it keeps getting more advanced. Check out The Maker Bot Replicator.

Kathy Corbet Interiors isn’t quite that advanced yet, but we still can do a lot to let you visualize your new design before you commit. We can show you a host of options for the same space.

A recent project had me designing a variety of looks for a bay window. A few clicks of the mouse is all it takes to show clients the options. Once we have the design set we can color it in and add fabric too. Check out the options:

Which one is your favorite? And what colors would you choose? Let us know in the comments!
