Table Talk

With these affordable tables and our clever tablecloth tricks, you can make an accent table more than a surface to hold objects of beauty or bedside necessities-- the table and its dressings can actually help you pull a scheme together. Think of it as a decorative medallion that creates a focal point and elevates its contents way beyond tabletop height.

Skyline playground

IT'S PRACTICALLY a whole theme park, only you don't have to buy tons of tickets or stand in long lines to show your kids a good time. Our build-it-yourself backyard playground is actually six kinds of fun in one: clubhouse, swings, monkey bars, sandbox, merry-go-round, and slide. Whimsical touches spur the kids' penchant for play by mimicking a make-believe city complete with skyscrapers, streetscapes, and clouds.

Ponds and Cascades

A gratifying garden's flowers, foliages, and fruits bring us closer to nature in civilized settings. Yet even the best-laid landscape plans can lack luster without the energizing, soul-soothing sparkle and movement of water. As elemental to human experience as warming fire or sweetly scented earth and air, water gives gardens a look of life-affirming bounty and buoyancy. If your yard feels static and status quo, consider installing a pond-- you can set up many designs yourself in less than a day.

garden retreat

A garden is many things to many people, and this means that sometimes a garden is all things to but one person. This is especially the case with the quiet garden. The private garden. The contemplative garden. This is the garden as sanctuary, as refuge, as retreat. Allan and Ellen Juhl fashioned sheltered nooks in their Seattle, Washington, yard to create just such a garden-- a place to enjoy a cup of coffee, an undisturbed read, even a dip in the hot tub. All this and not a single solitary act performed under the watchful eyes of passersby. So come take a look at the Juhls' garden. And see what their neighbors cannot.

perfect porches

Backyards aren't the only places to entertain alfresco or slip away to savor quiet moments with nature. A comfy front porch makes a great escape, too-- and the perfect spot to chat with friends and neighbors. Here are two easy-living porches, one for a house that's practically new, one for a lake cottage more than a century old. Each fits its house so perfectly that it's hard to imagine one without the other.

Hold a seashell to your ear, and you'll be swept away by the same soothing sounds that surround Juliet and William Hunter (right) in their Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, home. With its second-story primary living space offering a crow's nest view of the Atlantic, the Hunters call this an "upside-down house."
