Between friends

If asked whether my cup is half full or half empty, my natural inclination is always to say half full. That is until the situation involves the transition from summer to fall.

Words to Live By

Sure, a picture is worth a thousand words. But we've found a way to make just a few words establish character in a room. For these projects, word-inscribed fabrics and wall coverings, old letters, even chalkboard scribblings speak volumes about style.

Everlasting indoor gardens

When summer's rainbow starts to fade, don't resign yourself to the monotone of winter. Preserve the beauty and fragrance of the garden year-round with arrangements made of dried flowers and greenery. Crafts shops and floral supply stores stock an array of materials from which to choose. To keep arrangements looking their best, display them away from direct heat and sunlight, and seal with a spray designed to keep out dust.

Cabinetry Options

There are as many shapes and sizes of kitchen cabinets as there are colors to paint or stain them, but all cabinetry is made at one of three basic price levels: stock, semicustom, or custom. All three levels offer good-quality products for different kitchens and different budgets.

Triad colors are three hues equidistant from each other on the color wheel. Because the triple-color scheme easily slips into eye-jarring clashes, it's the most difficult to pull off.

Decorating Gets a High-Five

A slap-happy border gives this child's room its playful spirit. Rather than making a beeline through the middle of the wall, this border takes a detour. It wraps around the room's central element-- a bulletin board that doubles as a headboard-- giving it instant focal-point status. Washable paints, rubber stamps, and an easy painted-on blackboard make this decorating project easy enough for Mom or Dad to complete in a weekend, perhaps with a little help from the younger set. And at a total cost of about $150, it's a winner-- hands down.

The Internet is a lot like the real world-- vast and sometimes intimidating. There's a mind-boggling amount of information on the World Wide Web alone, some of it valuable, much of it trivial. Separating the grain from the chaff can be a major challenge when it comes to surfing the Net.

Early to Rise

Sometimes winter lasts too long. OK, maybe more than sometimes. Maybe every time. One way to cut into the inevitable monochrome is to plant as many of the small (and, unfortunately, lesser-known) bulbs as you can. They bloom quite early, sometimes foisting bursts of color up through the snow.

The Sunday garden

To hear them tell it, Charles Goldstein and Candice Devey don't have time to garden. They work six days a week in the family hardware store. And their house... It's been a 10-year project-- so far. But when they decided to renovate, they tackled both inside and out. In no time, they taught themselves how a sledgehammer can come into play in the garden. And they learned how to play with plants.

Bump it. Nudge it. Stretch it. When rearranging the furniture just won't do and relocating is not an option, it's time to add on-- or up. Additions are usually big projects, but they don't have to involve big spaces. Here's how three families added only the space they needed while remaining true to the character of the homes they love.
