A Southwest-based company for more than a century, Frazee Paint and its team of manufacturers are well acquainted with the unique climactic conditions of the region. Always pulling from the latest technology, their technicians design each of their paint and coating products to withstand dry heat, sparse rainfall, and showers of chewing tobacco from passing cowboys. Their quality paints, wall-coverings, wood-care products, and painter's tools stock the shelves of more than 125 retail locations throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, as well as international dealers in Mexico, China, and Guam.
Sit 'n Sleep stuffs its showroom with brand-name mattresses such as Sealy, Sherwood, and Simmons in a variety of sizes and firmness, from twin to California king and Euro tops to ultra plush. Sleepers slumber effortlessly atop the plush Sherwood Fremont pillow top, designed exclusively with sustainable, organic fibers and powers of clairvoyance ($399.99 for queen). Avoid tossing and turning on the Sealy Balboa Island's firm layers, replete with patented posturepedic technology stoutly supporting finicky spines throughout the night ($859.99 for full). The half-bed, half-machine Simmons Kings Cove, imbued with hybrid spring technology, struggles with its identity while its BeautySleep memory foam cuddles bodies for maximum sheep-counting.
With pennies pinched from her modeling career, Kimberly Yatsko bought a camera. She had a vision of being on the other side of the lens, and, inspired by the stunning magazine ads of Italian designers, she set off to make a career out of fashion photography. This career-change also inspired a move, and she plunged into Los Angeles's fashion scene without a backward glance. Once in LA, she worked for celebrity photographer Matthew Mitchell and fashion shutterbug Ash Gupta, honing her craft until she felt ready to start her own business.
Now, as the proprietor and artist behind Kimberly Yatsko Photography, she snaps portraits for magazines and private citizens. And she brings her fashion sensibilities to every shoot, whether she's showing off a product or helping a client feel and look beautiful. Once shoots are over, she provides her clients with both prints and digital versions of her images, ideal for printing at home or at the public library where that cute librarian works.

When the cleaners aren't tidying homes and offices, they purge gutters, repair screens, and dust chandeliers and ceiling fans. In addition to their regular services, they also set up and take down Christmas lights during the holiday season.
