If you like to watch HGTV, you’re going to love visiting Interior Designer Kenneth Brown‘s Blog.  His popular TV shows “reDesign” on HGTV and “Over Designed” on TLC have help catapult him to being one of the most sought-after interior designers in Los Angeles.  In one of his posts he gives easy examples of how to use containers and backyard cuttings to freshen up a room.
