Visit www.bhgrecollection.com ust as a flower blooms to welcome a brighter sun and warmer weather, so does your home. As we spring into a new season, the time has come to store our winter clothes, replace the heavy quilts and open the windows; and, in turn, uncover the pool, assemble the patio and return to the garden. I’m looking forward to enjoying the backyard a little longer with friends and family as the sun gains a later curfew. And, of course, firing up the grill to complement alfresco dining. In this issue of The Distinctive Life, we get back outside and reveal the best garden tools for your planting resolutions. This time of year, we may also be tempted to remodel while being mindful of its impact on the environment. So we share sustainable design tips from the experts to inspire your next eco-friendly home refresh. Later, we dive into decadent dessert ideas for your next soiree (the toffee temptation cake is a crowd-pleaser). And lastly, the closet is a truly personal space in any home; we put together closet organization tips to create a tidy and welcoming room for you. This edition is dedicated to opening up your home to a season of new beginnings; one filled with joy, harmony, and good company. Distinctively yours,
