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.
Shade specialists at Malibu Window Coverings bedeck windows with a wide variety of motorized shades, custom draperies, and blinds. During a complimentary at-home consultation, a designer will help clients select window treatments. A set of 36" x 48" mini blinds ($89+) adds an aura of mystery to secret clubhouse meetings, and a set of 36" x 48" faux-wood blinds ($130+) imbues rooms with a rustic touch. Customers can also cool down their domiciles with a set of 36" x 48" solar shades ($179+) that significantly block window glare but still allow room occupants' eyes to drink in verdant views. Malibu Window Coverings' array of motorized shades closes and opens draperies with the same speed and precision that a motorized cow squirts milk into a coffee mug at 20 paces.
The professional FTD florists at My Angel's Touch select the freshest seasonal blossoms to arrange into resplendent efflorescent offerings. The Natural Wonders bouquet is a vibrant ecosystem set in the hollow of a whitewashed, handled basket teeming with purple irises, white daisies, pink mini carnations, yellow solidago, and pulp-free orange lilies ($46.99). Two sunflowers illuminate the Sunset bouquet, shedding twilight on golden-yellow button poms, pistachio carnations, jade roses, and ivory alstroemeria ($41.99). Like a small monkey reunited with the robot who raised it, the bear on the Big Hug bouquet cleaves to a pale-green ceramic vase filled with purple lisianthus and feathery limonium ($48.99). For a Thoreau-inspired bouquet, create your own simplified arrangement featuring a single flower. Available blooms include carnations, roses, daisies, fire-extinguishing snapdragons, and lilies, as well as other seasonal flowers. Delivery is available for an additional fee.
