It’s not your neighbor’s pool – that’s for sure. The uniqueness of each pool designed by Bryan O’Neal is just that – a stunner created for your specific lifestyle to deliver a one-of-a-kind, backyard pool enclave, resulting in a personalized home sanctuary like no other.

When Bryan, owner/president of Falling Water Custom Pools, Inc., designs and builds a swimming environment he incorporates your personal
preferences, home architecture, surrounding landscape, and topography. “We never build the same pool twice,” he says. “Every yard is unique with drainage, setback issues, and architecture, so there is a twist on every pool that is often unknown by the homeowner,” he says. “I pinpoint these issues and develop a pool that works to your advantage, such as assisting you in alleviating these issues.” Drainage issues are addressed first, then comes the design, all resulting in pools that look good and function properly.

Turn on any television lately, and there are a myriad of programs to inspire homeowners. Whether the program is a total home makeover, a celebrity kitchen makeover or an educational program that objectively weighs the pros and cons of surface materials, one product has received more air time than any other—Silestone by Cosentino.
Made from quartz, Silestone has obtained rock star status for good reason, having been featured on over two dozen Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, five recent HGTV Dream Homes, highlighted on the Discovery Channel, selected for the Dream Kitchen Makeover by Rachel Ray and most recently featured on Good Morning America.


This award-winning countertop has garnered the attention of celebrities and design professionals alike, for its durability, beauty and affordability. For HGTV, Silestone, was a proud sponsor of the 2010 Dream Home Giveaway in New Mexico. There they collaborated with the HGTV house planners and designers to incorporate Silestone throughout different areas of the home. This year’s HGTV Dream Home featured stunning handpicked Silestone products for the kitchen countertops, master bath vanities and walls; as well as Eco by Cosentino recycled surfaces for the secondary bathrooms.

For more information, call Stone System of North Carolina at 704-238-1659 or visit them on line at www.stone-systems.com or www.cosentinonorthamerica.com. Silestone quartz is available nationally in over 65 colors and offers a 15-year limited manufacturer’s warranty.

Just as a frame complements its picture, so does the landscape of a house. Getting it right means a carefully planned design and the perfect products to complete the look. Since every home is unique, more people are turning to specialty stores to get items not offered by big box retailers.

Bill Zemak, owner of Overstream Poolscapes in Charlotte, specializes in constructing pools as part of building outdoor living environments. “Many of my clients come in with complex projects that need specialty products,” he says. Hardscapes that incorporate a pool can be particularly challenging.

To get homeowners the latest on the market, Zemak turned to Hil Hamer who owns and operates American Brickstone with his wife, Dawn. A local provider of brick, hardscape, masonry, grills and lighting products, the company is able to supply homeowners and their contractors
with a variety of traditional and newer product lines.

Now that we’ve decked – and undecked – the halls for the holidays, this is the ideal time to design your home in a look all your own that delivers timeless functionality every day of 2011.
Have you often wished for a way to express your lifestyle and personal tastes in a home unique in every way, unlike furniture sets you see in
retail catalogs? Savvy Charlotte homeowners have known the secret for a while – 10 years to be exact – of shopping at The Furniture Connector for fabulous furniture at affordable prices.


When you cross the shop’s South End threshold, be prepared to be awed – and to enjoy your time within, often not something associated with furniture shopping. The beautiful display of designer market samples and closeouts comprise a broad range of styles for furniture, lighting, accessories, and art. For an advance glance at the newest items, peruse the Web site’s “Off the Truck” section.
