Old Softies

In the old days, bedtime stories often were shared under a fluffy chenille spread. Rows of tufted stripes embellished with floral or geometric patterns provided warmth on cold nights, softness in summer heat, and affordable style every day. Today, chenille is making a comeback and spreading all over the house. Teamed with antique or reproduction furniture and funky trims, these collectible textiles conjure up vacation cottages and vintage charm. Flea markets, antiques shops, and Grandma's attic are logical places to find old chenille; new chenille spreads and ready-made accessories can be found in many catalogs and home stores. Even stained and torn pieces from the past can be cut up and given new life, as we've done with the glued-on lampshade and tied-up curtains (above).

A Friendly New Face

Face-lifting a century-old house poses a special challenge: How can you freshen its appearance without spoiling the 19th-century charm?

Sunny Side Up

As tongue-in-cheek names for styles go, this kitchen was what you would call "1970s wood grain." But the dark and dismal didn't end with the wood. A cabinet over the peninsula loomed between the kitchen and adjacent spaces, blocking valuable sunlight and views. Inefficient cabinet storage left countertops littered with small appliances.

Water Filters: The Clear Facts

Bottled drinking water and water purifiers may have been purely fashion or fitness statements in the 1980s, but for a growing number of Americans, they're now an extra safeguard against water contamination.

A New Cat on the Prowl

Cat fanciers will notice more than a hint of their favorite feline in the 1999 Mercury Cougar. Darrell Behmer, chief designer of the new sports coupe, says that his own cat, Mittens, provided inspiration for the car's character. "The look Mittens has when she's ready to pounce-- I see that same look in the car," he says. From its cat's-eye headlamps to its athletic stance, this Cougar delivers what its name implies, something the previous one didn't do.

10 Steps to a Drier, Healthier House
