Bench seats: The cozy art of hanging out by the window by BRENDA HANRAHAN, Peninsula Daily News

Who doesn’t love a cozy little niche to hang out in? You can read a book, needlepoint, simply enjoy the view with a cup of tea or possibly even take a nap. Situated on a bluff in Port Townsend, Carol and Michael Akers recently added a suite above their garage to accommodate their children. With their growing number of grandchildren the room is well-used and enjoyed. A bench seat was originally designed for the couple’s grandchildren, but when they aren’t visiting, it has become a perfect spot for Carol to hang out and needlepoint. “We created storage under the bench seat to fit baskets from her Longaberger Company collection of baskets,” said Trisa Katsikapes of Trisa & Co. Interior Design based in Port Angeles. “These sturdy and attractive baskets are perfect for holding toys, blankets and books.” The bench’s cushions were custom made and fabrics were carefully selected for style, comfort and durability, Katsikapes said. The bench’s back cushions are ergonomically sloped for comfort, and task lighting was added to provide additional warmth for the cozy nook. Carol has a few bench seats around the house and finds that they are well-used and also fun to decorate with various pillows and blankets. “Bench seats are not new to the design world. People have been using them for years,” Katsikapes said. “They are a clever way to use space wisely and to take advantage of views and dormers, creating an architectural interest.” Offering seating, storage and even a strong element of design, window bench seats provide a variety of reasons to be there. Design can be as plain as a straight line or can add curved lines around a round window. While the seating and storage elements of window seats are the obvious advantages, a bench has role in defining an area. Visit www.trisa.co for more information about Trisa & Co. Interior Design.

Five kitchen updates that will stand the test of time

You want to maximize counter space, and make sure your island is hardworking. QUICK TIP: Store your small appliances, like toasters and blenders, in your cabinets to free up counter space for all the other things you need it for.

By BRANDPOINT

PICK THE BEST APPLIANCES

Whether you’re undergoing a full-scale kitchen renovation or a simple refresh, design decisions can oftentimes feel overwhelming. A kitchen is command central in your home. We spend so much of our time here, whether its day-to-day activities with the family or hosting weekend get-togethers with friends. So, making timeless design decisions up front can help create the perfect space that you’ll enjoy today and still love in 20 years. Here are five top suggestions for making design decisions that last:

FOREVER FINISHES

When it comes to finishes, keep things classic. The best options are always the ones that have been around for decades — if they’ve been popular since the 1920s, there’s a good chance they’ll remain a staple for years to come. Think white subway tile, marble countertops, brass pulls and classic painted cabinetry.

MAXIMIZE COUNTER AND ISLAND SPACE

Your countertops are used for much more than preparing food — homework, art projects, family gatherings, late-night get-togethers — it all happens in your kitchen.

There is truly no better investment for your kitchen than hardworking appliances. It doesn’t matter what backsplash you choose — if your kitchen doesn’t function well, what’s the point? Select appliances that work for your family with innovative features inside and out to make life easier.

BRIGHTEN YOUR SPACE

Lighting is crucial in the kitchen and most people underestimate how many lights they need. You want a mix of overhead lighting, pendant lights and counter-top lighting. Shop your local antiques stores for options — you’ll be amazed at how much character a vintage light fixture will add, and they don’t have to break the bank. Or think outside the box and make your own fixture using ready-to-hang cords and pendants.

SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY IN THE DETAILS

Shop your own home for accessories for your kitchen. It can be as simple as a framed black and white photograph of your family or unique ceramic bowls and plates you picked up during your travels. Every room in your home should tell your story and feel important — especially the kitchen, where we do so much of our living.

Three easy home improvement projects you can tackle right now by BRANDPOINT

During the milder months — like summer and fall — homeowners naturally tend to prioritize working on the exterior of their house, because the weather is nice. But in the winter, we’re more apt to tackle smaller home improvement projects inside. This seems like a no-brainer, right? After all, no one wants to redo landscaping when it’s 40 degrees outside. With that in mind, Chip Gaines, host of HGTV’s Fixer Upper and lead contractor/owner of Magnolia Homes, offers these three easy home improvement projects to help you make the most of your winter indoors.

REPAINT YOUR WALLS

While you’re holed up inside the house decorating for the holidays or just escaping the cold, you may start noticing places on your walls in high-traffic areas with one too many scuff marks or kids’ grimy handprints. Whether they come from the kids, the pets or even yourself, erasing them is quick and easy. A good primer and sealer can take care of these marks and more. This high-hiding product only needs one hour of dry time before you apply a topcoat, so there’s no need to set aside a whole weekend to cross this project off your list. >> EASY PROJECTS continued on Page 11

New perennial favorites, container-grown edibles promise to add excitement to landscapes across the North Olympic Peninsula by BRENDA HANRAHAN, Peninsula Daily News

With spring just around the corner, many Peninsula gardeners are itching to head outside to tidy up flower beds, plant seeds, divide perennials and purchase new flowering plants. “There are some really exciting perennials for 2017 that are perfectly suited for our growing conditions,” said Pat Matthews, owner of Airport Garden Center, 2200 W. Edgewood Drive in Port Angeles. “Perennials can be planted and divided in cooler weather because of their hardiness, giving people a chance to get a jump-start on gardening in late winter and early spring.” While there is never a shortage of colorful plants to fill a landscape there are always a few new perennials introduced that are sure to become favorites. In the simplest terms, a perennial is a plant that lives for at least three or more years. The actual life span of a perennial varies depending on the species of plant, climate, soil conditions, insect and disease damage and the overall care the plant is given. Perennials are often sought out by gardeners because of their longevity and because they often can be divided after a few years to create an entirely new plant. Matthews said one of the most colorful and hardworking perennials to add to a home garden this year is Asclepias tuberosa, commonly known as butterfly weed. Blooming from June to August, butterfly weed is noted for showy flowers that attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. This sun-loving plant is labeled as easy to grow in well-drained soils. The plant was recently selected as the “Perennial Plant Association 2017 Perennial Plant of the Year.” “If you want something that will be beneficial to bees and butterflies and that will attract hummingbirds it doesn’t get any better than butterfly weed,” Matthews said. “It is a great addition to every garden, especially if you want to attract pollinators.” Matthews also suggested adding newly developed lupines that are hardier and more disease resistant. “Lupines make wonderful additions to flower gardens, but have a tendency to get powdery mildew,” he said. “These new plants are nearly disease resistant, have very sturdy stems and loads of blooms.” Offered in an array of colors ranging from pink, peach, purple and a combination of yellow and purple, these lupines will truly stand out in home landscapes. Matthews said four new lupine varieties to watch for include Masterpiece, Manhattan Lights, Gladiator and Red Rum. Another new cottage-inspired perennial to consider for a larger space is the Paraplu hydrangea. With mophead blooms of rich and vibrant florets ranging from hot pink to light pink, this shrub is a garden showstopper. Florets are doubled and arch downward resembling a multitude of dainty umbrellas.

February 2017

This compact hydrangea features glossy green foliage making it attractive before the colorful blooms appear on old wood. One of Matthews’ favorite introductions for 2017 is Proud Berry Symphoricarpos, better known as coralberry. “It is similar to the native shrub we call snowberry, but Proud Berry’s new growth features different shades of pink and really stands out,” he said. The 36-to-48-inch tall deciduous shrub features small blueish-green leaves that are attractive all season. In late summer, bell-shaped flowers appear. In autumn, the plant’s flowers develop into large dark pink berries that intensify with cold weather.

Freshen up a space with a coat of paint

Our tips and tricks can make the transition easy By METROCREATIVE & LAURA LOFGREN

Power Trip Energy Corp

Changing paint colors is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to add a fresh new look to the interior or exterior of a home. Both exterior and interior paint can be used to protect homes and make strong impressions. Painting projects are fun and can be easy, but not all projects are so simple; homeowners might need to exercise patience and devote an ample amount of time to get the job done right. One errant drip is all it takes to turn a perfect paint job into a colorful mess. Craig Heath, hardware buyer at Swain’s General Store in Port Angeles, said, “Interior paints have changed quite a bit in recent years, especially since the advent of the ‘paint + primer’ varieties. “Most of these paints have lower VOC [volatile organic compounds]

“I see this most frequently with either ‘flesh tones’ or off-white colors,” he said. “The colors may look great under the lighting at the paint store and then quite different when applied and fully dried on the bedroom wall.” Most paint stores offer a sample size of any interior color to try to see how the color looks in your home. “Most of us have invested hours of time on a painting project, only to have to repaint it a different color (or wish that we did!),” Heath said. “How much better it is to look at your finished paint project and say, ‘Wow!’ ” It also is important to remember that during a painting project, you’ll more than likely need to do a few touch-ups, so it’s a good call to get a little more paint than you originally calculated for the space. “That way you’re sure the paint will match perfectly,” Heath said.

levels — and less odor — and tend to be thicker. Thicker paints require stiffer brushes.” Before beginning a painting project, you must prep the wall first. “You cannot overemphasize the importance of prepping the area prior to painting,” Heath said. “Some people balk at the extra time and expense of this step; however, in the long run, it will not only give better results, but actually save you time.” Heath said the painting step goes quicker, plus you eliminate the time and mess of cleaning up paint where you don’t want it. “A good quality of painter’s tape, like Frog Tape, leads to clean, straight lines,” he said. “Painter’s paper and drop-cloths provide inexpensive protection for windows, floors and furniture.” Another time-saver, Heath said, is to be sure of the color before painting the entire wall (or room).

“If you think you might need more of that exact color, ask for an extra copy of the formula labels to keep for your records, or have the store keep the information on file for you.” After you’ve perfected the walls of your newly painted room, you might find yourself with extra paint or painting supplies you don’t want anymore. Heath said you can always donate these items to Habitat for Humanity. While paints are much safer now than in years past, they still need to be handled with caution and disposed of with care after the job is done. Painting can be a tricky project because the fumes and chemicals found in many paints make these products more difficult to dispose of. The Environmental Protection Agency says homeowners in the United State throw out 64 million gallons of paint per year. While latex paints are not considered hazardous waste, they should be recycled. Oil-based paints, however, are considered hazardous household waste (HHW) and must be disposed of properly. All homeowners should check with their trash and recycling collection centers regarding the proper way to dispose of paints, stains and varnishes. In Port Angeles, the Moderate Risk Waste Facility at 3501 W. 18th St. accepts oil-based paints, plus automotive products, household cleaners, fertilizers, garden products, pesticides, hobby chemicals, flammable liquids, corrosives, oxidizers, solvents and other hazardous materials.

Four ways to create an outdoor living space By BRANDPOINT

CUSTOM CABINETS & WOODWORKING 721793532

Jeff Howat - 681-3451 Over 40 years experience jeff@hfww.biz • www.hfww.biz

Whether you plan to live in your home for years to come or have an upcoming listing on your mind, now could be a great time to create an outdoor living space. Today more than ever, homeowners are seeking ways to maximize the footprint of their home — both inside the four walls and out. Outdoor environments can serve many purposes and are a perfect way to customize a space that is right for your family. As you consider creating a beautiful yet functional outdoor area, here are some key elements to keep in mind:

OUTDOOR KITCHENS ARE IN DEMAND

721790487

Whether you keep it simple with a built-in grill, some counter space and a sink, or go grand with a brick pizza oven and abundant seating at a granite-topped counter, an outdoor kitchen is becoming a must. In fact, according to www.Realtor.com, home buyers will pay a premium of more than 26 percent for a home with an outdoor kitchen. As with the indoor kitchen, many outdoor kitchens include a cooking area, sink, storage and refrigeration. As with your indoor kitchen, the faucet outside can be the perfect marriage of beauty and function. You can find a variety of kitchen faucets from manufacturers that fulfill all your outdoor needs. Need the ability to put water exactly where you want it in your outdoor workspace? A pulldown faucet offers great looks and exceptional versatility.

MEDIA MAKES ITS WAY OUTDOORS

Many of the technology wonders you enjoy indoors are making their way into outdoor environments.

Outdoor sinks are in demand when creating an outdoor living space.

From built-in flatscreen TVs that can stream video, to video gaming systems, Wi-Fi and surround sound, outdoor entertainment has gone high tech. Whenever you’re incorporating electronics and electricity in an outdoor environment, weather proofing and proper wiring are essential. Keep these critical aspects in mind while planning your outdoor space, and deciding what media you’ll incorporate and where it will be placed.

BARS ARE BIG

Outdoor bars, such as traditional tikki bars, might increase your home value by nearly 14 percent. >> OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE continued on Page 19 721793530

Whether you’re thinking of adding a bar in tandem with your outdoor kitchen space, or want to simply expand your entertaining area, an outdoor bar requires a few basic elements. A fully operational sink with a high-functioning bar faucet are a go-to when it comes to outdoor bars. Storage for beverages and glassware, a drink chiller, ice storage and seating can make your outdoor entertaining area an envy in the neighborhood.

ROOM FOR RELAXATION

While plenty of comfortable, attractive seating tends to be a significant part of outdoor living spaces, modern outdoor spaces are re-defining relaxation, entertainment and gathering with friends. In addition to seating and dining areas, homeowners are incorporating recreational elements such as ping pong and billiards tables, putting greens, hot tubs and infinity pools. Fire pits and fireplaces are also popular for adding ambiance, and deliver the added bonus of extending the outdoor living season well into cooler months. Whether you choose to build a full-wall fireplace that doubles as a brick pizza oven, or stick with a more modest, portable fire pit, adding heat and comfort to your outdoor space can also add value (upward of 21 percent). Outdoor living spaces offer a multitude of benefits and creative options. Even the simplest of designs can make a home feel larger, increase the property’s resale value and bring years of enjoyment.

Houseplants 101: How to keep your houseplants happy and healthy Because houseplants depend on you for their care, it is important to be aware of the elements critical to their wellbeing and steps you can take in your home to make them happier and healthier.

By JEANETTE STEHR-GREEN, a WSU-certified Clallam County Master Gardener

Houseplants are living things that require care. Conditions we need for growth (and comfort) differ from those a plant desires; for instance, curling up in front of a warm fire is not something most plants would find inviting.

LIGHT

Light provides energy for photosynthesis, the process by which all plants manufacture food (carbohydrates). A well-lit home has only a small fraction of the light intensity available outdoors; that is why outdoor plants grown inside rarely do well. Luckily, plants sold as “houseplants” typically have lower light requirements than outdoor plants; some houseplants, however, still require more light than others. Because little can be done to change the natural light intensity in an already built home, for greatest success, select houseplants that match your indoor light level. (See “Selected houseplants with different light requirements” article on Page 21.) To achieve modest increases in light intensity around a houseplant • Move it closer to the window. • Remove window dressings. • Prune trees and shrubs outside the window. • Increase reflected light by painting nearby walls a light color. • Consider supplemental lighting that emits light in wavelengths that plants prefer (fluorescent lamps and special LEDs).

WATER

All living things need water to stay alive. Water is used in photosynthesis and also contributes to a plant’s rigidness. Too much water, however, can

lead to root rot and plant death. As with light, houseplants differ in their water needs. Some thrive under moist conditions while others grow well when kept drier; slow growing or dormant plants require much less water than actively growing plants. Know the water requirements of your houseplant and water only when the plant needs water, not on a schedule. Never let your plant stand in water for prolonged periods; few plants can survive these conditions. Wilting is a blatant sign that a plant needs water, but it can also be a sign of root death due to over-watering. Consider other indicators that a plant needs to be watered such as: • Soil that is dry an inch below the surface • The pot feeling lighter than you would expect • Soil pulling away from the sides of the pot or a hollow sound when you tap on the pot • Light colored soil

HUMIDITY

Plants absorb carbon dioxide (needed for photosynthesis) and give off oxygen (needed by us) through pores in their leaves; during this gas exchange, they also lose water. Loss of water from the leaf causes the pores to close, slowing down (or even stopping) photosynthesis. High relative humidity (70 to 80 percent) decreases water loss; the humidity level in most homes, however, is often below 60 percent, nearing 30 percent in winter. You can temporarily increase the humidity around plants by misting the foliage, but the effect is short-lived; furthermore, if you mist excessively, the wet foliage can contribute to the emergence of fungal diseases. >> HOUSEPLANTS 101 continued on Page 21

To increase humidity around indoor plants, better approaches are to: • Use a humidifier. • Relocate the plant to a room with higher natural humidity such as the kitchen or bathroom. • Place the plant on a shallow tray of moist gravel. • Group plants together so that they increase the surrounding humidity as they lose moisture through their leaves.

NUTRIENTS

Selected houseplants with different light requirements By JEANETTE STEHR-GREEN, a WSU-certified Clallam County Master Gardener

Most houseplants do well in bright, indirect light, but some will tolerate low light levels. Beware, some houseplants, even those that desire bright light, will be damaged by direct sun.

Plants make their own food through photosynthesis, LOW LIGHT but must absorb certain nutrients from the soil. If those Aglaonema (Chinese evergreen) nutrients are not in the soil, fertilizers must be applied Aspidistra (cast iron plant) for optimal plant health. Devil’s ivy (Pothos) Dracaena (some species) Indoor plants, in low light conditions, have reduced Peace lily nutrient requirements compared to outdoor plants. As a Sansevieria (snake plant) result, houseplants are fertilized less frequently and with more dilute fertilizers than outdoor plants. Apply fertilizers when plants are growing actively, MEDIUM LIGHT African violets typically in the spring and summer. Bromeliads When you do fertilize, choose a fertilizer with a higher Dieffenbachia (dumb cane) percentage of nitrogen for foliage plants, such as 20-20Dracaena marginata (dragon tree) 20, and one with a higher percentage of phosphorus Ferns for flowering plants, such as 15-30-15, to encourage Peperomia blooming. Philodendron Schefflera >> HOUSEPLANTS 101 continued on Page 22

Ferns require medium-intensity light making them a favored houseplant. Avoid low-light conditions and strong direct sunlight which can scald the leaves or fronds. Keep the soil evenly moist but do not let them sit in water.

SOIL

Soil acts as an anchor for your plant (allowing it to stand upright); it is also the reservoir for moisture, nutrients and oxygen that are absorbed by the roots. As a plant’s roots grow, they fill a larger percentage of the pot, crowding out the soil. Furthermore, over time soil breaks down and becomes compacted, decreasing the amount of moisture and oxygen the soil can hold. It is a good idea to repot plants when the roots outgrow the pot or the soil becomes worn out. Be sure to: • Repot plants when they are actively growing (usually in spring) so that they overcome the shock more quickly. • Use a soil that is light and fluffy to allow sufficient water and oxygen to reach growing roots. • Move the plant to a slightly bigger, clean pot with drainage holes or trim the roots and return the plant to the original pot.

TEMPERATURE

Most houseplants tolerate temperatures found in the average household (60 to 80 degrees). Some, however, prefer nighttime temperatures that are 10 to 15 degrees cooler than during the day. Excessively low or high temperatures (resulting from a nearby outside door or radiator) might cause houseplants to stop growing, become spindly or drop leaves. Plants can’t fend for themselves! Consider their needs (in terms of light, water, nutrients, humidity, soil and temperature) to keep your houseplants happy and healthy. Jeanette Stehr-Green is a WSU-certified Clallam County Master Gardener. Stehr-Green will talk about houseplant care at the Brown Bag Lunchtime Seminar Series at noon on Feb. 23 at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles. The talk is free and open to the public.

Without the distractions of outdoor plants, why not take a moment to focus on your houseplants this winter? • Increase the humidity around your plants. Use a room humidifier or pour a layer of gravel into a shallow tray, add water so it is just beneath the surface of the gravel and set your plants on top. • Water sparingly but don’t forget about them. Although plants are growing more slowly and use less water, forced air heating decreases the humidity and causes the soil to dry out faster. Check your plants frequently to see if they need water. • Avoid fertilizing in the winter. Houseplants, like many outdoor plants, go dormant during the winter; growth slows down or ceases completely and fertilizer is rarely needed. • Turn down the heat at night. The variance in temperature is natural and mimics conditions plants experience “in the wild.” It also encourages some plants to form flowers. • Avoid temperature extremes. Keep plants away from both cold drafts and sources of heat, like radiators, fireplaces and space heaters. Avoid putting plants near single-glazed windows, unless you take precautions to insulate them. • Clean them. Dust on leaves inhibits photosynthesis. To remove the dust, wipe the leaves with a damp cloth or give your plant a bath in the sink with a sprayer. Do not wash cacti or plants with hairy leaves (such as African violets). • Tidy them up. Snip off damaged leaves and dead stems and remove fading flowers but wait to repot your houseplant until it is actively growing.

During winter take a close look at your houseplants. Snipping damaged leaves and dead stems from the plant and clearing dust off leaves promotes a healthier and happier houseplant.

• Watch for pests. Warm, dry conditions allow insects and mites to multiply rapidly. These pests are small and hard to see, so be on the lookout for signs of an infestation such as distorted leaves; a shiny, sticky coating on the leaves (honeydew); or fine webbing. • Relocate plants to get as much light as possible. Shorter days and a lower angle of the sun further decrease the amount of light your houseplants get. Consider moving them to a brighter spot or adding supplemental light. Sadly, this special care during winter might not be enough and your houseplants will drop a few leaves. Don’t be alarmed! If they are otherwise healthy, they will return to normal when spring comes.
