Design Trends: Laminate Flooring

Laminate Flooring

Over the next few weeks, we will be exploring different types of flooring options for your home.

Laminate flooring has been gaining in popularity, especially as more and more brands are offering look-alike “hardwood floor” styles. These styles have all the look and color and shine of hardwood floors, without the cost and upkeep. Laminate flooring is an easy, inexpensive way to get the look of hardwood for less. It’s harder to scratch and damage, making it ideal for homes with pets, particularly large dogs, and children. Clean up is easy, just sweeping and mopping. It comes in a range of colors and styles, making it easy to incorporate into your home and complement your existing decor.

Guide to San Diego Farmer’s Markets

San Diego is known for its local farmers markets and great, fresh produce. Wherever you live, you’re sure to find one in or near your community. Additionally, many other vendors attend the farmer’s markets selling everything from cheese to bread to pastries and cookies to salsa, fresh juice, hummus, and more. Some vendors even come to sell jewelry, clothing, and other goods. Not only are the farmer’s markets a great way to get some delicious food, it’s also a chance to buy local and catch up with friends and family in the community. San Diego Farmer’s Markets happen year round.

Best Hiking in San Diego

San Diego has some of the best day hikes in southern California. Whether you prefer coastal breezes, mountainous terrain, or the raw beauty of the desert, it’s easy to find a hike that fits your preferences and skill level.

 

Best Hiking San Diego

 

El Capitan Open Space: 14 miles roundtrip

This is a challenging hike with steep inclines and declines that lead you to beautiful panoramic views. The best time of the year for this hike is in the spring or late fall when temperatures are a bit cooler.

 

Torrey Pines State Reserve: 5.6 miles roundtrip

This is a moderate trail that leads to gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and is an amazing place to spot dolphins and whales. Any sunny day out of the year is great for this hike.

 

 

Cedar Creek Falls/The Devil’s Punchbowl: 5.2 miles roundtrip

Cedar Creek Falls is a challenging hike to a relaxing swimming hole. Bring lots of water, lunch, sunscreen, your swimsuit, and a $6 permit (good for up to 5 people) that you can buy online.

 

 

Lake Poway to Mt. Woodson: 8.6 miles roundtrip

This is a moderate hike that begins near the Poway dam and leads you up to the top of Mt. Woodson where you can see views spanning all of San Diego County from the famed Potato Chip rock. It’s best to go on cooler days or start early in the morning. You will also need to pay to park.

 

 

Sunset Cliffs: 3.7 miles roundtrip

Sunset Cliffs is an easy hike with breathtaking views and tons of wildlife. The best time to go is during the week because on the weekend it can get a little overcrowded.

 

 

Iron Mountain: 5.8 miles roundtrip

Iron Mountain is a moderate/challenging hike with beautiful scenery. This is another hike that is best done during the week to avoid crowds.

 

 

Cowles Mountain: 4.7 miles roundtrip

Cowles is a moderate, yet family and dog-friendly hike that leads to panoramic views from Tijuana to Camp Pendleton. This trail is very popular, but there are three different ways to approach the top to avoid the crowds.

 

 

North Lake Hodges: 14.8 miles roundtrip

This is an easy, but long trail that leads you to stunning views of the lake. This trail is horse and bike-friendly and can be enjoyed year-round!

Design Trends: Southwest

As a design trend, styling homes using artifacts and replicas of Native American and southwestern items has always been a popular choice in the southwest and parts of the west. However, in recent years, this design trend has grown in popularity. Southern California has many spanish-style and adobe homes and if you take your decorating cues from your home’s exterior, the southwestern design trend might fit your home well. This design trend is most distinguished by its use of earthtone browns, reds, and turquoise blues, cow hide, “tribal” geometric patterns, woven blankets, and rustic wood furniture.

Restaurant of the Moment: BO-Beau

BO-Beau

4996 W Point Loma Blvd
San Diego, CA92107
619-224-2884

(Also in La Mesa)

The Cohn Family has done it again! In BO-Beau they have created a warm, hip, inspiring space that begs visitors to come inside and take a seat. The décor is bohemian chic, which creates an atmosphere unlike any other restaurant in town. Countless lights are hung from the ceiling, drinks are served in mason jars and the backyard breeziness makes you feel as if you are enjoying a luxurious picnic under the stars. But don’t worry- if it gets too chilly they offer complimentary blankets and heaters on their patio.
While ordering at BO-Beau, tough decisions must be made since everything on the menu sounds absolutely mouthwatering. One of our all time favorites is the Rotini and Cheese with sweet and spicy bacon. This dish is great because its perfect as an entrée accompanied by their “little gem” salad, or as a starter to share with friends. For more traditional entrées, it is vital to try the Spicy Shrimp Flatbread with avocado and mozzarella, the Burger Royale with pork belly and gouda, or for a healthier fare, the Quinoa and Kale Salad with mango and pecans. After dinner you must save room, because dessert is necessary while dining at BO-Beau. The sweet and fluffy Pumpkin Bread Pudding will remind you of Thanksgivings past and adds to the comforting feel that this French inspired restaurant encompasses. On the whole, BO-Beau is a welcomed addition to the neighborhood and a fabulous place to indulge and unwind.
Open for Dinner Tuesday through Sunday.
