Shade-Grown Gardens

Sun worshipers, including the basic gardening variety, can be a fickle lot. We while away winter anticipating the luxuriously long, sun-drenched days of summer. Yet in July-- when the mercury rises so relentlessly that daisies beg for a break-- we naturally pine for shade. Sheltered from the sun's glare and heat, shaded gardens offer plant lovers and garden guests invitingly cool refuge for relaxation and reflection. And, happily, shade-grown gardens needn't be botanically boring, monochromatic expanses of ivy. Plants adapted to thrive in shade abound.

Decorating just for fun

As delightful and pint-sized as a playhouse for adults, this 620-square-foot cottage brims with the comfort and personality found in sandy wood and gleaming headboard, lacy wicker and a parade of quirky collectibles. It's a reflection of David and Anita Lempesis, a marketing specialist and an interior designer who eight years ago saw the disheveled fishing cabin for what it could become, then invested the heart and hard work to make it so. Their creative decorating can inspire anyone trying to shoehorn style and livability into a too-tight space.

Red white and blue

From the outside, this cottage sits as quietly as it has for 100 years, perked only by one seamless add-on-- a screened porch topped with a second-story deck. But inside, the home's former Early American decorating scheme has given way to a spirited new American style, one that "snaps-to" with energy and personality, and still puts all who enter instantly at ease.

Rise and Shine Baths

One sure way to get your day rolling is to soak up a cheery dose of morning sun along with your steamy bath or bracing shower. But letting Mother Nature brighten your bath takes savvy planning. How do you lure the light without losing precious wall space to windows? How do you coax it into the far corners without exposing the entire room to the world? And how do you contain all those glorious rays in tight quarters without blasting the room with glare? To settle these and other key design questions, steal a few bright ideas from our trio of sun-loving baths.
