Background Beauty. ’20 Feet from Stardom’ A Netflix Must-watch!
We believe that when designing a space, attention to the background is of utmost importance. With this in mind, we have some entertaining viewing that reinforces this concept. 20 Feet from Stardom looks at the backup singers who have brought us some of the most well-played songs in the past 40 years. Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Feature, this film features interviews with foreground stars such as Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting, to name a few. We love that 20 Feet from Stardom gives accolades to singers with pipes as strong as Aretha’s but who have never been given their due. This wonderful bit of viewing will change the way you hear music. We now hear the background first … Check it out on Netflix!
I am devoted to making people love living in their homes. I have done that with absolute joy for most of my life and as a career for the past 20 years or so...
I am a homebody – I do not actively seek adventure but I have had adventures. I believe home is the most sacred and important place in the world. I say I grew up on a farm – but I doubt technically it would qualify as a farm. Five acres – one milk cow – one calf - we ate them when they grew up, lots of chickens and a few pigs – we ate them too…
I was that kid who dragged rugs and furniture out to the orchard and set up outdoor rooms. It mixed my two favourite things – outside and comfortable furniture. My friends and I would sleep outside in my “rooms”. It was magical because my ceiling was full of stars.
I have lived in small houses, big houses, basement suites, cottages, condos and apartments. I have built and I have renovated houses. For a short time in my young life I was without a home
– this changed me. I have lived with pets, wanted and unwanted – rodents are unwanted… I have lived in a house richly full with the raising of my four children. I have had the tremendous
joy of my children carrying my grandchildren into my home. I have had my home become an “empty nest” and my life shrunken and shattered with the loss of my beloved husband.
Home and my people there have always been my comfort. It does not matter where home is, it only matters that you are in it and that you find comfort there and that is why I do what I do.
