In addition to reading my daily blog, I hope you are all following the progress of my apartment renovation in my bi-monthly column in Martha Stewart Living, as well. In my September column, I explained the process of lightening my floors and in November, Martha and I organize and set up my kitchen. From time to time, I will also appear with Martha on The Martha Stewart Show to talk about what's happening with my renovation and also share some information about what I have learned along the way. In case you missed it, here's a recent clip from the show that gives you an overview of what's to come.

Every Thursday afternoon I walk to the radio production room in our offices at Starrett-Lehigh, put on my headphones, and begin my half-hour radio segment on Martha Stewart Living Radio with host, Mario Bosquez. Our most recent shows have been about flooring (care and maintenance, refinishing, alternative options, etc.), lighting, my favorite design and book stores, outdoor fabrics, painted furniture and finishes and seasonal flower arrangements, among others.
MSL radio, like the company itself, covers everything from entertaining, home and food, to pet care and healthy living. A long roster of experts host daily and weekly segments, but two of my personal favorites are Martha's daily segment, "Ask Martha," and the always hilarious "Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer."
Here's a clip from one of my segments a couple of Thursday's ago. I hope to post rebroadcasts more regularly for those of my readers without Sirius Satellite radio. Click HERE for a free 3 day trial in the meantime!
Listen in every Thursday at 3:30 on Sirius 112 or XM 157.
Since my post a few weeks ago on bedside lighting, I have been considering the existing lighting in my own apartment. Although the apartment has walls of windows and gets amazing light throughout the day, I need to start thinking about the types of lighting I want to have in each room. I don't want the lighting or fixtures to become intrusive or distract from the views in any way, especially at night. Right now the existing lighting is pretty minimal, as you will see in the photos. I set up a meeting with my contractor, Bob Tobin of BC Interiors , to talk about some of my options. Together, I'm sure we will come up with some great lighting solutions for my apartment.
