Wow Them with Wainscots

Wainscots are back, with more variety than ever. These trims reach only part way up a wall to visually lower high ceilings, add interest to walls that have no built-in character, or simply provide some decorating punctuation to your design statements. For instance, wall coverings and borders like the ones shown here become instant wainscots when hung at chair-rail height instead of at the ceiling.

Out-of-Sight Delight

Jan Waltemath gardens "down in a little bowl," as she puts it, alongside not one but two suburban streets. Before she laid out her extensive gardens, she-- not her landscape-- was on display, and her main view was not of flowers but of asphalt. Here is how she provided for her perennials... and for her privacy.

High on Style

You'd swear that Franz and Susan Pielmeier paid a premium for the striking one-of-a-kind home they built recently in Connecticut, but they got by for $90 per square foot-- little more than the cost of a bare-bones tract house. Working with an architect who knows how to cut corners without stinting on style, the Pielmeiers gained a 2,400-square-foot showplace, complete with ample romping room for daughters Katherine and Madeline and a separate suite for Franz's mother, Paula.
