Party Windows

Stir up a bit of extra drama for special gatherings by setting the stage with a simple window dressing that's designed to frill. Floating at the window with the grace of a wedding veil, this temporary treatment is made with bridal trims and inexpensive tulle from the fabric store. By tossing the tulle over an existing rod (give your permanent window coverings the night off or a trip to the cleaners) or simply tacking it to the wall, you can perk up your portholes for a one-night affair or the entire holiday season.

Lampshades

Lighten up your decorating style with witty and whimsical lampshades. A little inspiration-- plus such everyday items as ribbons, flowers, stickers, and paint-- turn ordinary paper shades into eye-catching bright spots. For painting or decoupaging, start with new shades or ones in perfect condition. (Crafts stores carry a range of sizes.) Slightly damaged shades can be disguised if covered completely with fabric or flower trims. For the best paint coverage, look for concentrated, medium-viscosity acrylic artist's paints. Hot-glue guns are a fast and easy way to adhere trims.

The New PE

A blur of motion and laughter lights up the gym as young teens run, jump, skate, shoot hoops, and bat paddleballs. These shouting, laughing, gleeful seventh and eighth graders at Teague Middle School in Humble, Texas, drown out even the beat of hip-hop music.

Designed for the Vista

The game of golf helped drive the design of this award-winning house, which backs onto a residential course. It's an easy chip shot away from the fairway, and the best seats in the house are those along the gallery of windows dominating the rear exterior. The home's eyes-to-the-rear layout is perfect for capturing golf action or any panoramic vista looking out on landscapes, cityscapes, or seascapes. The award came in a contest for architects, sponsored in part by Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
