Beyond the Curb with Anna Fiascone

March 29, 2022

While I was in Hinsdale, I was fortunate enough to tour one of the most iconic homes in this charming Chicago suburb. Anna Fiascone took me through this colorful home that was once a dairy barn in 1898 for the house next door. In 1924, it was converted into a residence.  Despite a long history,

Beyond the Curb with Anna Fiascone and Sarah Vaile

March 17, 2022

Last week, I visited the charming Chicago suburb of Hinsdale, Illinois. Real estate agent Anna Fiascone invited me to this sweet town to show me a glimpse of her chic Midwest.

Proprietors Guild

January 24, 2022

Over the years as The Potted Boxwood has grown on social media, I have had many a coffee and drinks date talking with businesses, architects, designers, relators, and landscape architects about how to effectively market on social media. There is no simple formula that guarantees success, but over the past eight years I have learned

Why Not Wallpaper?

January 7, 2022
