Although a mirror only reflects your fa?ade, your home ought to reveal your true self. The designers at Heather Cleveland Design take this into account as they create interior designs that transform the four walls of a home into a comfortable refuge. After mapping your movements from room to room, they create a cohesive and efficient layout. Then they build upon this foundation by selecting color palettes, pieces of furniture, and decorations that reflect your personality.
When they aren't helping homeowners settle into their domiciles, they can help them move out?and potentially get a better price for their home?through staging. This strategic interior design technique highlights unique features with major design overhauls or subtle changes in lighting and decor. If necessary, the designers can recommend a few renovations, such as repainting with flattering colors, adding new flooring, or replacing a beaded curtain with an actual front door.

Pump It Up of Oakland's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Occasionally, the staffers switch off the lights, arming the roomful of players with glow sticks and bracelets as they navigate the air-cushioned obstaclescape. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the floor and ceiling by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.
